My car smells like, hmmm..... my cologne?

Let me see when Sam can send me a JBL car perfume. Until then, it is not a totally JBLyfied Baleno.

Let me add:

How does your dog smell?

Terrible!

Actually, regularly carrying a dog in the car, especially an old one is one way to ad a, errr, perfume!

There is no other way. Even when it smells perfect to you, it will stink to a non-smoker. Just like your clothes, your house, you...

I'm not having a go at smokers here!

Oh heck... OK, I admit it, yes I am

Yup, it smells to non-smokers, whatever you do. I have to sometimes suffer badly since all my friend's smoke & knowing that the only one who uses Dhanno they smoke in it freely, albeit with the windows open since otherwise I get suffocated.

Afterwards though I have to drive the car with the fresh air mode on & all the windows open for at least half-an-hour to get rid of the smell enough that it does not irritate me.

You edited your earlier post eh? I think you earlier mentioned that you got the stickers, lighter and tissues and missed the freshener. Anyway, I remember Sam having sent a goodies bag to someone, anyway OT. I'll ask Sam to send me the stickers atleast, I need them.

I think it is basic manners to ask the others, even if it is your own car if they're ok with smoking. I never smoke in a non-smoker's car, even if he/she is ok with it.

iraghava, I agree with you - it is really irritating, suffocating for a non-smoker.

Try Ambipure Aqua and keep it at the minimal setting.

I used to use it when in the US. You can get is cheap at a dollar shop for
1$. Spray it on the carpet on the floor of the car (not on the rubber mat if you have one). However I don't know if it's available here & how much it
costs.

I am not a big fan of anti-bacterials. Every product nowadays contains
antibacterials. I think we are going overboard with bacteria. There is a
lot of good bacteria which is very useful. For eg. killing bacteria will cause
fungal growth. I avoid anti-bacterials whenever I can.
Pitting Bacteria against Fungi is always good for humankind.

That is a line out of modern poetry. Keep at it my friend, you reminded me of Ogden Nash.

Not bad for a first post.

Anyone use Stanley Wet Blue atmospheric perfume? Seems hard to find. What are good alternatives to Ambipur.

The Glade stuff if you can find it, works just like Ambipur and supposed to last 45 days.

For a non-smoking car it works well and leaves a subtle lingering scent that you wont notice on a daily basis but others will
