The smoke is probably coolant steam and the sweet smell is the unique aroma of engine coolant (anti-freeze). check the carpets, they may be wet with coolant. most likely a heater core failure.

White smoke is coming out of my vents


White smoke is usually indicative of a blown head gasket. Usually if you have blue smoke it's oil......If you have white smoke and possibly a "sweet" smell to it, that's normally coolant.
If it's coming out of your vents then I'd say you need new gaskets now. What's happened is the gasket blew out so bad that the smoke made it's way through the vent system, it's also coming from under your hood I bet giving my past experience with this.
Definitely new head gaskets to fix this though.

Smell and white smoke coming thur ac vents


Your heater core has developed a leak (of coolant). The smell is the "sweet" smell of ethylene glycol,
a component of engine coolant. The white smoke is steam coming from the heated coolant evaporating.
The coolant is dripping into your duct work under the dashboard, and apparently being evaporated
out of the ductwork and sent into the passenger compartment, meaning its a small leak.
When the leak gets worse, you may get wet carpet on the front passenger side.

Smoke coming through air vents


Is it smoke? Or is it steam? If it's really smoke, it will smell like burning wires and you have an electrical short somewhere. You're going to have a fire unless it's fixed.
My guess is that it's probably not smoke or you would have already had a fire.
With that said I'm going to say that it's steam in which case your heater core (which is a small radiator located under the dash) is leaking coolant and the resulting steam is rising through the vents. The steam will have a sort of sweet and yes, a steamy smell to it. It will also leave a funny film from the radiator coolant coating the inside of the windshield.
The heater core should be replaced if my assumptions are correct.

1999 ford expendition has smoke coming out of the vent


If it is a kind of sweet smell then your heater core needs to be replaced. It's leaking and you should keep an eye on your coolant level until you get it fixed. The smoke is coolant. Hope this helps.
