    Its got this unique berry smell... A bit girly so has to be supplemented with another California car scent! I keep 2 California car scents in my car. Two cherrys and one berry! And it really sets of the smell
    where do you keep yours? I have to put one in my cup holder but then I can't put my drinks in there :'(

    so you have 3 open at once?

    i put one in the rear part of the centre console behind the armrest, there is a small shelf like thing there.

    so if you put one in the tin in the drink holder where are the other 2?

    I have mine resting on the cover that goes over the cup holder but I need to move it as it slides around and is annoying! Mate your motor must smell like a sweet shop with 2!!!:-)

    Method1: just get two different scents put them close by each other...
    Method 2: get two scents (Barbara berry & cherry) take a pad out each and mix and match so swap 1 pad each.

    DO NOT TAKE THE PAD OUT AND PLACE IT ON YOUR PLASTIC TRIM! I did this and it cracked my whole cup holder! Audi sorted it out though!

    I've got a California Cherry atm, in the cup holder under armrest.

    I find I get immune to them though, like cars smells of nothing to me, yet passengers comment on cherry smell.

    I have never heard of these California Scents until this thread so I have just ordered a few to try!

    I normally use the Juicy Detailing Bubblegum spray as it smells amazing!

    Because of this thread and the fact my poppy coral run out I went to Asda and purchased a cherry jelly belly, got in the car opened it and it smelt great! But alas! where do I put it?. After trying everywhere and not been happy I thought of all the talk hybrid turbo's on here. So I thought mmm and scratched my head. Ping! I found the answer, a hybrid poppy belly! So I opened up the carbon fibre look poppy coral, Removed the spent refill and placed the jelly belly in the poppy coral and replaced the lid! Time taken = 2 mins, Tools needed = hands and a 1 pence piece. If you want ill do a guide if you find it hard.
