Hi,

Can anyone recommend a spray car air/interior freshener?

Thanks

Glenn

Second that

I know its not a freshener but if you use it to clean your plastics/dash it leaves a nice smell.

Berry Blast is very nice.

I also like the bubblegum flavour California car scents that come in a litte metal tin.

Re: Car Air Fresheners

If your car has leather seats(which mine has) use Gliptone Liquid Leather air freshener. It smells of leather everytime you get into your car-it lasts for months. They also have an air freshner which fits under the seat so you don't see the freshner.

Re: Car Air Fresheners

the BEST you can get are California scents (http://www.californiascents.com/) They come in tins. not cheap but you wont get better. can pick them up from ebay or come car shops.

My dad has a cherry one in hes lucida for about 2 years now and it still smells brilliant. I stole a block (looks like compressed wood) out of it and jammed it into the air vent of my cinq and when i want the car to smell nice i open the vent for a few mins.

They do a new car smell one... altho i dunno why anyone would want there car to smell of plasic

Re: Car Air Fresheners

i cant do with teh "fake" smelling air freshners, ie ones that smell like apple etc

Got my Tropi-care one delivered yesterday, and can say it is a decent smelling one, smells like brand new leather... although slightly out of place because i dont have leather lol

Re: Car Air Fresheners

Yeh. I'm looking for a decent air freshener that doesn't smell fruity like apples or cherries, I like the vanillarama tree one but goes very quickly.
might give the Green one a shot, hated the blue "new car scent" one
