Okay this is a big topic and a lot of different opinions but I would like to know everyone's choice on car fresheners.


Thanks for all that reply :)

For now, the natural new car smell is the best smell in the world and i dont want to cover that up.

I have the leather seats, I have never had leather before but have found there was a less of a 'new car' smell. I smlet (sounds odd) the next model down at the dealer with cloth seats and foudn it had a stronger new car smell.

Saying that my air freshner of choice is the Amorall range, in Tahitian Vanilla. Mmmmmmmm... and an open window.

Don't need one, but I wish I could just get rid of the new car smell. Although only getting the truck at August's end, I quickly did a leather treatment in hopes of masking the "just-manufactured" aroma. No such luck!

Agreed. No added smell is the best smell. No air "fresheners" here.

It's boring having no scent imo

Started using the "new car" tree after the original smell wore off.

I accidently left a couple boxes of Bounce Sheets in the car. Now it smells like clean laundry every time I open the door.

I know the natural new car scent is toxic but I love that smell. The new car smell trees smell different. I also love the smell of leather but my favorite of all is the mango-mandarin smell which for some reason they stopped producing.

Reminds me of about two weeks after we bought our CX-5, my wife had already put some frufru smelling crap freshener in there. I could have killed her!

I typically don't use one. I noticed if the interior is kept clean, it smells mostly neutral, which alright by me. Just as long as its not smelling bad.

7 months after purchase a coworker got into my CX-5 (w/leather GT interior) for the 1st time and he commented that he liked the "new car smell", so I guess it's still there.

Leather new car smell lasts longer than cloth imo.

This. Clean cars should not require "car fresheners." Much like apply perfume/cologne on a poorly cleansed person.

In the cars I've had in the past, not once have I put any outside scent in. Even the Infiniti I had from '01-'12 that had 120,000 city miles. No complaints of bad smell either since they were always clean inside.
