I've owned the X100, X100f and now X100v and always bought and liked the Fuji leather cases to go with these cameras. I just received the latest iteration for my new x100v and it has a strong faux leather, chemical smell. It does not have the natural leather smell that the previous versions had. I bought it from an authorised dealer, so it shouldn't be the case that it's counterfeit.

Anyone noticed the same thing?

You are probably smelling a little bit of adhesive used somewhere on the case.
