One more thing worth trying for you guys - F1's dashboard cleaner/polish! Leaves quite a long lasting lemony smell. Dosen't irritate my olfactory cells too much either. And in the bargain, your dashboard, etc., stays is great shape too!

Beware though, F1 fakes are VERY common, and very difficult to detect.

Have any of you tried "Poppy"
I tried the blue one and it smelt like Bananas!
Apparently some other of their colors are good.

IMO, Ambipur AQUA smells great. Gives you kinda fresh feeling everytym you sit in your car.

Default Ambipur...

IMO, Ambipur is one of the best ones available in the market. The 'After Tobacco' (too strong for some) and 'Aqua' are the best options in the various choices available. But, Ambipur 100 bucks for 8ml is very very expensive and lasts for about 20 days only.

In fact, a white colored sober bottle called 'Grandy' is also very popular but you have to have the original - lot of fakes in the market. After once buying the bottle, you also get 'refills' for it (100 bucks) - you do not have to buy the bottle again!

I use a japanese jell type car freshner, the brand? Sorry cant read japanese/korean/whatever, but its a very strong citrous smell. I have asked the dealer from whom I bought my baleno, he doesnt want to disclose the source, he is to happy to hand me a new one whenever I ask him about the source

I have been using Ambipure for quite a while. Seems fine. But not very effective after I smoke. Received another from Amway. Need to try that out.

Default Dusty feeling when the AC is switched on

Well, slightly off topic, how to get rid of that dusty feeling when I turn on the AC in my car? It feels somewhat like the air you breathe when there is some dust kicked up around you. It lasts for a few seconds though, after which, it is pretty much normal. The service guy doesnt feel a thing & says its normal for some settled dust to blow out when the AC is switched on. It wasnt so earlier according to me. Got some pressurised air blown on the vents last time, but still the feeling doesnt seem to go. What options do I have? Always drive with my windows rolled up?

Is it just my mind which feels dusty when I turn on the AC??

Also, another question: How do I get back the new car smell? that of the new plastic & rubber which is soo ummmmm

odonil doesn't remind you of pvr bathrooms ??

I use calvin Klein Contradiction sprayed into cotton balls which are then tossed in my old air freshner ki bottle.

I have always used Ambipur in the car, but they usually dont last long, and the smell itself is not as prominent as i would like it to. This time got hold of a flavor called 'Citrus', which smells nice, and the smell is instantly identifiable as well.
