If it leaks in the engine compartment you should be able to detect the coolant smell when you lift the bonnet after a good drive (engine up to op temp). Same thing if there's a leak in the passenger compartment due to a leaky matrix.

With no smell and after a careful inspection of all components of the cooling system (radiator, hoses etc), the only places coolant can disappear is trough the exhaust pipe or in the engine sump through a cracked/duffed head gasket/cylinder head/engine block.
