Generally speaking I hate all car fresheners, finding them either too overpowering or just generally unpleasantly scented.

This is about the only one I enjoy (no I don't smoke in my car). It's reasonably subtle, not sickly sweet and doesn't overpower you in a car that's been standing in the sun for a while. I just leave it on the lowest scent setting.

Chemical Guys stripper scent is good. Inspired Automotive also have a good range of spray air fresheners that last ages! however i find the auto glym hanging air fresheners to be the best all rounder as far as smell, longivity and strength. Whenever i detail/valet cars they always get positive feedback!

How do you use those? ok ok, a stupid question, but don't they say to open the cellophane packaging and just poke a bit of the freshener out? I always just take all the packaging off. Saying that, its years since I used one.

Recently bought this http://www.halfords.com/motoring/car-ac ... ool-breeze from Halfrauds to go in the cup holder. Didn't quite think it through, cos I use the cupholder for more important things....like McDonalds cups of Coffee (obviously!) so I put it in the armrest cupholder which is covered up....and therefore I don't smell it at all!

Thats correct you cut the v shape at the top and pull out part of the tree, then pull a bit more each week, but the look stupid hanging with a bag on so as everyone does, pul it off have very strong smell for a few days then it dies off ....

This scent isn't yet out in bottle format, but been told it should be in a couple of weeks, slightly dubious as it's going to be called graphite, and thats far from what I would have said it smelt like!
My company (Car Air Freshener Shop now Custom Freshener Co.) manufactured these for Waxybox.

So unless they're wizards, I'm not sure they'll get it exactly the same without a good liquid fragrance sample to work from. Still, glad to hear you liked them! :-)
Havent been on for a while sorry!

Got anything thats similar to this?!

Spray wise try AutoSmart Berry Blast. That's a good match.

What a bunch of girly wooses (no offense ladies).

Cant go wrong filling the car with JP-8 fumes; find the nearest airfield, drop the windows and inhale.
E87 118d, stock, plus PDC control unit drain, Parrot, debadged, Mothercare baby shades (but no babies), and occassionally a good layer of wax. Instantly forgettable, and thats the way I like it.
