New Car Smell

any1 ever personally had good result or heard good things of products that makes your car smell like a new car that you can recommend? I love that new car smell but it seems really tough to replicate with air fresheners.

I did a quick search on google and the chemical guys stuff is top hit. Chemical guys is pretty legit brand but i am skeptical

http://www.chemicalguys.com/New_car_...air_101_16.htm

lol looks like they have new leather scent too

http://www.chemicalguys.com/LEATHER_...air_102_16.htm

LMAO Im dying. Stripper scent
http://www.chemicalguys.com/STRIPPER...air_069_16.htm

I just called them, and the girl described the new car smell 1 as a baby powder smell and the leather smell 1 as closer to actual new car smell. It's not that expensive, so Imna give it a try.

A good leather product like chemical guys should bring it out. A air freshener wont do anything. Also, stop ripping nasty ass in the car.

Ooooo you got leatherette. Hmm..... Try the Chemical Guys. I've heard good stuff about it on real leather. I dont even know what a new car smells like with leatherette. I'd imagine something like sweaty ass and deep fried shrimp.

I know leather is great at trapping smells. Dont know about ette. I'd imagine so since its a fabric sorta. Also try something to clean your headliner. Email the guys at DI and see what they've got for you.

For like the first week or two of having a new car I try so hard not to rip ass in it, but then I finally get tired of holding them in.

I bought both the leather and new car scent from chemical guys. They're a bit overpowering for me. The new car scent does not smell like a new BMW to me. The leather smells ok, but I'd rather just use Zaino Z9 and Z10 for that smell. I don't plan to use either of them again.

I like turtles when they tuck their heads into their shells. I worked in the collections lab in college. Used to cut their shells open with a dremel, gut them, and feed them to beetles before reassembling them.


The three smells that I find linger around the car the most are food, nasty ass, and sex. Keep the food in the trunk, keeps the farts on the DL, and keep the sex on the grass and you should be good. But clean the seats, carpet, and headliner as well.

Step 1: Go to wal-mart
Step 2: Buy AXE BODY SPRAY
Step 3: Use entire can on inside of car
Step 4: Wait for the ladies to swarm
Step 5: Wait longer for the ladies to swarm
Step 6: Wake up, its morning.... no ladies swarmed
Step 7: Realize you should have bought the "stripper scent" so you can at least pretend you/your car is a chick magnet
Step 8: Collect Underpants
Step 9: ............
Step 10: PROFIT

I just use Duragloss 441/221 to clean and condition my leather (it's the same as Zaino Z9/Z10, but a few $ cheaper). That restores the new leather smell for a few weeks.

The CG Stripper Scent actually smells pretty good... then again, I love strippers in general. And it works well as an odor neutralizer. Smells like a mix of sultry women and daddy issues.
