Air Fresheners (Looking for suggestions)

Hey guys, a couple of days ago I bought BMW's Natural Air that came with Sparkling Raindrops—just to try it out since someone mentioned it on Reddit. It was my first time trying it out and HOLY MOLY does it smell good. It smells like a perfume compared to let's say California Scents Coronado Cherry.

So now I basically want to buy other fragrances that smell like sparkling raindrops or something similar. Do you guys have any suggestions?

I think I just found a new thing I'd like to do now.

It first started when someone mentioned that Air Spencer Squash (JDM) is one of the best so I also bought that one and made a video about it too.

Comprehensive Unboxing and Review

BMW Natural Air

- Sparkling Raindrops
- Purifyng Green Tea
- Vitalizing Woods

Air Spencer CS-X3
- Squash

Go au naturale with the new car smell. Does your car no longer smell new?

^This. Nothing like the natural new car smell. I used to buy the yankee candle little jar leather scent things when the new car smell wore off. They are hard to find and I think they changed the scent. It's not the same.

I use the air spencer Squash and love it. Very good scent, and lasts much longer than the ones you can purchase in stores here in the US .

Treefrog Squash the best. Air spence imo is junk. Smells good but doesn't last.

My air spencers seem to last long, in comparison to standard US air fresheners from auto parts store, target etc.

You think the tree frog ones last longer? I will look into them next time I need to order.

Used to have those Squash fresheners at EAS when I was there a longgggg while back.

Dammit, now that you've mentioned it I feel like I have to get one lol. Honestly those things smelled so amazing, I'm a big fan of those but not using them on the CS yet, still smells fresh and new

Yeap the tree frogs last longer and are cheaper than the air spencer cartridges.
$32 for 12 cans (1 can last a month)

$21 for 3 refills ( 1 refill maybe last a month)

Just go to the highest-end car wash in the worst neighborhood you can find. They'll have a huge selection of products to make your car smell how you want. Trust me. 💡

Griots "fine leather" interior scent is the only thing I have ever used that complements the natural interior scent. Doesn't smell "fake", and is subtle.

It still smells like brand new since I rarely use it and sits in the garage most of the time. Maybe I guess I wanted to smell something different, hehehe.

Yeah I tried this out on the Honda Civic and it compliments it really well.

One of my friends mentioned this on Instagram so I'm going to try this out too. How long does yours last? I'm only expecting the scent to last in 30 days.

Ah, that makes sense. Many years ago I used to rock with the Air Spencer Squash fragrance. I was convinced there wasn't an air freshener better.

A few shots of this on detail day keeps me fresh.

Other than that, I occasionally have used the "Mahogany Teak Wood" scented disk from Bath and Body Works (for rear center vent).

Tried Vitalizing Woods! Itís not as strong as Sparkling Raindrops but itís still feels nice to open your car with this fragrance.
