    Default What is your car scent?

    I like to keep a bottle in my car for various reasons.

    What do you guys like to use as your car scent, if you do use one.

    Main reasons for it would be...

    forget to put cologne on in morning.
    freshen up after leaving the gym.
    cologne doesnt last whole day at work
    going out with friends or date after work before going home.

    I was thinking something versatile, can wear all seasons and weather, can wear in many different social settings, pleasant to others.

    I was thinking something like

    L eau D issey
    Bleau Chanel
    Creed Original Vetiver.

    What do you guys think?

    I used to have the L'Artisan Parfumeur amber ball but quickly got rid of it.

    Constant amber got tedious plus it interfered with my SotD.

    I am trying to imagine what it would feel like to enter hedonist's car, warmed up by Abu Dhabi's sun, the owner having just sprayed his customary 15 spritzes. The amber ball would have an indentity crisis.

    Jokes aside, I don't own a car - so this doesn't apply to me. But I'm thinking that if I were to, I probably would keep some Chanel Eau de Cologne as a quick freshener/sanitizer (as I do in my office drawer).

    Exactly. Keeping a bottle of cologne in your car is the surefire way to drastically reduce it's life expectancy. It would be better to keep a small atomizer from accessoriesforfragrances in your car or on your person so that you don't ruin your whole bottle...especially if it's an expensive bottle of Creed Original Vetiver!

    I like to stick my bottle of cool water (frozen edition) in my car, but it's like more for a car freshener! It's cheap, not a fragrance I care too much about, and my car has gotten tons of compliments of how good it smells!! :P

    During the cold months I always keep one or two in the car. To wear, at the moment I have a sample of L'Eau Bleue d'Issey pour Homme for long days when I'm out and when what I'm wearing has disappeared. I also keep a bottle as a car freshener, usually something cheap or something I'm trying to get rid of. Right now, it's Island Bath and Body's Plumeria Vanilla that I picked up at a shop for $5.

    I carry fragrance in my gym bag and briefcase. Good stuff in my briefcase, less costly fragrance in my gym bag. I hate being stuck without fragrance when it's most needed. Among other issues, I work in a building that is fairly frequently overcome with bad scents. Today it was rotting Valentines Day flowers - really horrible. Bad food smells, torched microwave popcorn. . . I carry fragrance in self-defense.

    My friends and co-workers frequently tell me my car smells good. It's strictly from the fragrances I spray on me, right before I leave the house. That's enough car fragrance, IMO.

    From the title i thought this thread was about what you use to spray your car itself!

    In my case I deodorize my Jeep with Aqua Quorum-it's cheap, strong and smells decent.

    I can't carry anything in my vehicle here in Fl most of the year, the oven temps in the closed parked vehicle would quickly destroy a fragrance

    I do not leave any of my perfumes in my car, hot or cold weather. But some of the test cards I am no longer interested in, stay there sometimes.

    Don't own a car, but Rive Gauche would be my first choice if I did.

    When I was young, I kept a bottle of AdG in my '91 CRX, good times!. That practice is long gone....

    But now, I load up a detailing sponge with Grafton by Truefitt & Hill and shove it under the passenger seat. Best new car smell ever!

    Is the act of burning incense/Oud an evil eye repellant?

    And how would a nice smelling vehicle deter thieves ?

    I thought I was the only one that loved the squash! I used to keep an under-the-seat squash air freshener in the car. Then I switched to the can type squash scent. It smelled amazing! Every single time somebody got in my car they complimented me on how good it smelled. It's like the Curve or Acqua Di Gio of car fresheners
