    Air freshener

    Hi all,

    My car is now losing it's 'new car' smell and I'm not sure what to replace it with? Is there anything out there worth investing it that I've been missing out on?

    Got a soft spot for coconut (a little gay I know), anything out there?

    Thanks in advance!

    James

    Not really after the new car smell again, want something tropical and fresh. That might be the answer so thanks

    A little late now Nath, I've ordered some but I'll be sure to come to you once I'm out.

    Surprised you haven't advertised them in here?!

    they last quite long fran, a tin can go strong for a month at least then after it tones down and can be alright for around another month.

    the two i mentioned are quite good and last a long time, i bought 4 off ebay for like 8 quid delivered so around 2 each but they do last a fair bit thats for sure.

    the california scents off ebay are ok but unfourtanately they dont seem to last very long as apposed to my local motor store or halfrauds.... but they are hell of a lot cheaper... and sit nice in the b7 pocket under the armrest autoglym used to do an air freshner which u spray into the vehicle and it settles in the seats and upholstry called "hyper fresh co**** cocktail" the smell is rather erotic and to die for! lasts a long time too!

    the downside is this prodict is being discontinued and being replaced with hyper fresh... cotton linen.. which is ok if you want the car to smell like grandmas perfume... if you can get the co**** cocktail get it and cherish it!

    regards chris

    Same guys noticed the ebay california scents are not as strong!!

    something fishy going on there as i bought the 4 for £8 but they are no way as strong as the ones i buy from my local texaco petrol station which are alot stronger and last longer

    The one air fresher I have always used and helps keep that new car smell is "Magic Tree Black Ice". Smells awesome, I always buy two and put them on the rear roof handles in the back...

    Available to purchase from your local halfrauds

    Im a great fan of the Vanilla Magic Tree, however, I have been converted to california scents, the cherry one is amazing, in fact a guy from work a lift home the one day, then the next day he told everyone in the office how nice my car smelt and ended up a gathering round my car at lunchtime, as they all wanted to smell it!!!

    Sad but true....easy things please us hey!!
