    Never thought of that.

    I've been trying to work out what to do with my bars of sex wax.

    Coronado Cherry or the bubblegum flavoured California Scent for me. I don't care if they're sickly sweet, I like them and they last forever.

    +1 on the California Scents for me, although I prefer the Vanilla or Grape. Lasts for ages.

    Keept the interior clean, and you shouldn't need air fresheners.

    I bought a load off eBay and dotted them all around my house. I don't think there's a room that doesn't have at least one hidden in it somewhere!

    This thread is so funny, I just wanted to add that Ive found this type of freshener to be the best IMO, it gives that new car smell and lasts a decent amount of time too, they are also cheap for 10 from flea bay, this one is lavender but they come in other flavors too, i love the lavender one above the rest, and everyone who gets in my car loves it too....

    Yankee candle are nice but don't last. The longest lasting by far I have found are the Help for Heroes ones! Nice smell as well.

    Cherry is the most common one and does smell very nice, the vanilla one aint bad either.

    I think I have a bubblegum one at home, so may get that out this week.

    I have been most impressed with them and normally get 5 for a tenner at shows, to be honest they normally last me a year.

    Got a new car so decided on a new cali scent!
    The Coronado cherry were epic, but had them in last car, wanted something different in the a5.
    Chose fresh linen, smells ok but not particularly strong or impressive! 😐
    Will go for citrus splash next time to see what that's like!
    New car or melon are always a possibility too, but got to be cali scents as they fit in cup holders so well in back!
