I use ambipur.
Quite cool.
I used to have the bottles but everytime i got irritated i would punch the bottle really hard and my hand would become sore.
Anyway, you guys can use your deo.
Any perfume that smells the way a new car does?

well ...the ambipur perfumes are good but i have only one sore point against these perfumes..they mask the other smells that give an indication of the way the car is doing....

maybe there is a petrol leak but all we can smell is ambipur......i used to have ambipur not any more !

there are many air fresheners available check out the promotions at your local petrolpump there is a freshener called honey kiss the fragrance is absolutely wonderfull it is very powerfull and comes in bottles which can be stuck on the dash but i would suggest you just use your own deo or even cologne the car will smell better and as many suggested a good wash really makes ure car smell great.

Well youll get it at most of the car accesories shops along milan subway/koliwada/opera house and im sorry the new car fragrance was an imported one and was brilliant my dealer at milan subway had given it to me but have not got another one after that neither have i been able to figure out its name as it was was in arabic.Any ways you can always try your luck at one of these shops but do tell them you want the aerosol spray or theyll all show you "AMBI PUR" saying its the best in the market and personally i think its crap.

You better keep an eye everytime you enter the car , whether the fruit is there or eaten by , most probably the rats , coz i think they are smart enough to enter the car espically after the invitation
