Smell has a huge influence on the sub-concious - get it right and customers are happy, get it wrong, no matter how good a result technically, the customer will find fault. If it smells good, it must be good is what the mind seems to say, even if it is not really the case. Try the smell of bacon under the grill - boy it smells good but maybe it doesn't do you much good! We hope we have found the best of both worlds at AIRTUNE!

doesn't bother me either way - as long as the product does the required job doesn't matter what it smells like. don't see the point in waxes smelling as the only place they smell is in the tub - once its on the car the smell disappears - it matters not one jot. I think the only thing a scent may do is mask any chemical smell of whatever the product is.

The fragrance isn't a buying factor for me. But like others have said, it's a bonus if it has a nice one

Yes - for pretty much every aspect of detailing there is a choice of several good products. I often found I could not decide between 2 or 3 products - e.g a glass cleaner. Smell is then a decider.

I have also stopped using a product because of smell before now too.
The only exception is Fallout removers. all smell rank!

It helps, but its not a deal breaker for me. All down to how good it is and how cheap it is!

I have so many waxes I'll probably never use, the smells are the only reason I still have half of them

I like a no-nonsense approach. No fancy dyes added and fragrances either. If I can actually smell the chemicals and things that are doing the work I'm happy. Reminds you that you are using something special , not something knocked up by accountants and marketing people , but chemists in a lab. All IMO of course. Have to say I do like the smell of iron remover lol
