Want to give your modern car a ‘lived-in’ feel? Then register your interest for our new ‘Old Car Smell’ air freshener

Whether it’s the whiff of the oily rags that accompanied your dad’s tinkering, or the salty air of a family drive to the seaside, there’s nothing quite like the power of smell to trigger the memory of our favourite cars.

But if it was possible to combine the scents of the nation’s fondest motoring memories into a single fragrance, just what would it smell like?

Well thanks to our new ‘Old Car Smell’ air freshener you have the chance to find out for yourself.

Based on the results of a nationwide social media campaign launched by our friend and Channel 4 Car SOS presenter Fuzz Townshend, the top ten odours you said were the most unforgettable were:

1. Old leather - 49%

2. Engine Oil/Castrol - 48%

3. Petrol - 24%

4. Warm Vinyl / Plastic - 12%

5. Pipe Smoke / Cigarette Ash - 11%

6. Musty Carpet - 10%

7. Burnt Dust - 8%

8. Vanilla / Orange Air freshener - 8%

9. Damp - 5%

10. Wood - 5%

The final scent based on this mix really has to be sniffed to be believed! So if you want to give your modern motor the real ‘lived-in feel’ of a classic car or are just a little curious, then sign-up using the form below for the chance to receive an air freshener for free.
