Interior fragrance

This is a total long shot, how do you describe a smell....

Collected a new car that had been valeted (I know I know) but the interior smell is just great. I don’t know how other to describe it other than it’s almost aftershave / cologne like.

Does anyone have a clue as to what this may be? Anyone know of car fresheners that are more “male fragrance” like? The dealer has requested the info from the valet but I’m not getting anywhere.

I asked a question about Air Fresheners on here a while back and one of the suggestions was Chemical Guys "Black Frost". Never having heard of Black Frost I asked what kind of small it had and the answer came back as "it smells kind of like an aftershave a fresh scent".

Any ideas on the products they used to Valet your car or was there a paper mat cover left in the car from the valeter. That would then give you an idea for what brand to look at.

I expect a lot of the dealer valets are loyal to certain companies such as Autoglym, Autosmart etc. You may find that its not an air freshener but actually the smell of a product such as an interior detailer they have used to wipe the surfaces down.

Good point actually, there were AutoGlym paper mats in the foot wells.

Might pop down hellfrauds and smell all the AG interior stuff - sure to get some strange looks but thanks for that

Have a sniff of the Autoglym Autofresh. There is also a Pro version, same name, where you dilute it to the smelly strength you like.

Happy to help. It might be Autoglym Interior Shampoo, although it says shampoo you can spray it onto a MF and wipe surfaces down with it and I love the smell of it.

AG's Autofresh is lovely, I always spray some inside cars after detailing them. Not long lasting but I would describe it as a masculine scent, not really cologne though.

If you want a really nice cologne smelling air freshener the nicest I have found is definitely Mitchell and King 11 (The name of their airfresheners) , cologne is probably the fragrance they're best known for out of all the choices of fragrence they offer but quite a few to choose from and all good quality.
