How do you guys keep your cars smelling good?
I'm a big fan of that new leather smell. My car hasn't had any air fresheners or anything like that in it for a few years now, and since it was neglected a bit (interior was never really cleaned until recently and leather was only cleaned and conditioned a few days ago) it really doesn't smell that great anymore lol.

I've ordered some zymol cleaner and conditioner and will apply that in maybe a month or so since I just conditioned the leather, and I've also got Griot's interior care spray which I've heard really good things about. I'm hoping after I condition and clean the care properly with the griot's and zymol, I'll get that new smell back and hopefully won't need any air fresheners.

My question to you guys:
Who uses air fresheners?
Or do you just skip out on the air fresheners and let the leather conditioner work its magic (assuming you like the scent of your conditioner)?

For leather conditioner try Zaino Z10 - Leather in a Bottle. It's a little expensive but has a great smell and really works the leather.

I also use the little trees when the leather smell wears out and I don't want to re-condition yet, for that I like the Black Ice smell.

Yep. I've got the pink bubble gum one in there now.

You could always get the leather smell tree freshener.

How does Zymol smell? 507 leather and the 509 conditioner? Some ppl say it smells like leather others say not really

I have heard great things about griots though, I'll let you guys know how that goes.

I have a yankiee candle airfreshener which is good. I also use shake and vac on the carpets when hovering.
Using a good dash cleaner also makes it smell good.

Febreeze. You could also put a dryer sheet under your seat, but I find that a bit much.

I just wanted to point out that a lady today sat in the X and asked how the interior still smelled so new. ;) Z10.
