My cars smell like my garage. It's a fine mix of transmission fluid, differential/gear oil and gasoline. My daughter thinks they (somebody) should make a cologne with that smell. I don't even notice it. Maybe they should make an air freshener with that smell. They can call it "grease monkey" .

I like my girl Cherry. Even though she doesn't really "put out' (fragrance) anymore.



Any guesses on the sticker on the top cubby? Come on, those with kids have to know...

If you don't smoke in a car you don't need any air freshener. I had a Toyota Celica that was 10 years old when I sold it before going to Germany and the people that looked at all said it smelled like it was brand new.

Best air freshener? Changing the cabin air filter.

I seriously didn't know this was a thing, and I doubt the previous owner (my grandpa) had ever done changed it on my '02.

I changed it, and the old musty smell that I chalked up to just being a 16 y/o car GONE!! Seriously, smells like a brand new car now. Much better than trying to mask smells.

My favorite interior car smell is that of four unwashed bodies and their backpacking / climbing gear after a multi-day day North Cascades climb. Because it means we were out having fun in the outdoors, and perhaps even bagged another summit.

But I draw the limit with @trailgodck liking the smell of ATF, especially synthetic. That stuff is just plain rank, and I once heard about it afterward from DW after I spilled some in the garage and couldn't remove the trace odor left behind after cleanup.

My 2c Try searching for this - "Natural Magic Air Purifying Oxy Beads, Odor Eliminator for Cars, Closets, Bathrooms and Pet Areas, Captures and Eliminates Odors" I've used it when leaving my car for months at a time and it seems to absorb all the bad pet, kid smells. It's seems to work well. Never been a fan of the smelly tree freshness and I shudder to think of the toxic chemicals one is inhaling from them.

I'm fond of little trees bourbon scent. Smells fantastic. Might be problematic if you get pulled over though.
