Leather care - interior new car scent

Has anyone found a product that preserves the somewhat unique to BMW new car smell?

I like the Griot's Garage leather products. Leaves a nice leather smell.

zaino has a popular product and i've heard griots has one that smells good as well. i've searched and i don't think there is such thing as a "new car smell" scent out there. they all usually just smell like new leather which isn't exactly the same as the new car smell.

+1. If you enjoy the leather smell, this is a great product.

I just buy the toxic adhesives that are used (which is what gives off the smell) and start huffing those.

jk- the griots stuff like everyone else said.
