No seriously! Can anyone recommend something that is actually nice. Whilst I do use reasonably nicely-scented products to clean the dash nothing seems to smell great and last more than a day. And at 3 years old now any original new car smell has long gone. No pine tree please [:S]

I was just going to ask whether the refills are a stupendous price!! but then i noticed that they are 2.50, which aint too bad. May have to invest in one myself.

I can agree with you there.

Got a 1l of Cherry and 1l of Cherry Deodourisor and found that they don't leave a lasting smell.

I find them ok, I spray them on an old air freshner & also into the carpet, that way you release a little smell each time you move you feet

I try to keep my car as neutral as possible, so that means keeping it clean and dry inside, regularly opening all doors to let fresh air in and evaporate any condensation. Running the air con and heating regularly also helps keep the air channels clear and free of miffs. If there is any bad smell I'll use AG Autofresh, which smells like Neutradol more than an air freshener/scent. At the moment it smells of "car" inside which is all I want. No perfume, nothing.

Sometimes I'll eat a takeaway in my car but I'm pretty good at that and don't get any on the interior and it doesn't smell either.

[*-)] Wild berries.....is that the one you use Sat? - doesn't it smell too sweet, like how some vanilla air fresheners smell too strong

I have a Poppy Coral air freshner. I think they are all the same smell. Don't smell too bad in my opinion [Y]

better than this F1 smelly stuff I DID have... smelt like old, bad, aftershave [+o(]

Cheers guys, plenty of ideas there to try.

Not a fan of the Febreeze/Neutradol smell in the car, nor pine/cinnamon usual fresheners.

Have had my car now for 3 months and the air freshener the dealer put in it is done. But I loved it and even asked could I have another, but sadly they were a one-off batch of 1000 made by a local perfummery the dealer bought and has now run out with no plans to re-order. Was a nice musky aftershave smell.
