Smell that smell!

So I've had my Camaro for over 6 months now and my car still has that "new car" scent. I'm sure at some point it will no longer keep it but I was wondering what my fellow Camaro owners are using for air fresheners.. anyone with dangling cherry scented fuzzy dice?? lol..

I'm at 14 months and 12,000mi and mine still smells new so you may have a while more to enjoy it.

Personally, I try to avoid air fresheners. What I do like is interior cleaners that smell good. You clean the dash and you get a nice scent for a while that isn't obnoxious like those little freshener pots and trees.

I'm a fan of the "Bath & Body Shop" sprays. One little spritz and my car can smell like a lime margarita or an oriental forest or ocean breezes. They have a wide selection of scents. Do not get their visor clip-ons. They can melt in hot weather and cause damage to your interior.
I can not say enough about the scent of freshly treated leather either. I love the way the car smells when I'm done detailing.

Little Tree's "Black Ice". Everybody comments on how great that scent is. I always hang them low off of the glove box so they don't touch anything. They will eat up plastic, and I like to keep them out of sight.

Blonde is weaving all over the road and a cop sees her. He pulls her over and she says "Thank God you stopped me I was afraid I was going to run into one of those trees that suddenly were all over the road." The cop says "Lady, that's your air freshner."

This gets lots of good reviews on the autogeek forum

"Chemical Guys Stripper Scent Premium Air Freshener is described as the "smell of success" and maybe it is. If you use this, you will successfully rid your vehicle of odors, once and for all!
Chemical Guys Stripper Scent Premium Air Freshener is engineered with active odor eliminators and neutralizers to rapidly subdue undesirable smells right at the source, delivering a premium, long-lasting fresh scent...... "

http://www.autogeek.net/chemical-guy...freshener.html



never tried it myself...but... with that kind of naming / marketing....maybe on my next order

Actually I think it's very funny to see the way most people use their little trees. You can tell they never read the instructions on the back. You aren't supposed to take the paper all the way off, only one level of branches at a time.
