Dont laugh but I really like Smelly Beaver's, they seem to last a good while and have a great range of different scents...

It also has the added bonus of winding up Mrs P when I put one in her car

What on earth does Black Frost smell like? The nearest I get to smelling frost is every winter when I fall on my ****.

Coronado Cherry gets loads of comments on how nice it is in my car.I have tried dozens of car air fresheners and its the only one that lasts so far.I keep it in my cup holder in the dash.Which has a soft close door over it.I do keep the door closed all the time.This keeps it just nice.As you say its strong,very strong.Try just opening the vent on it just very slightly.Leave under your seat.
iTS SO STRONG,I used to keep my electric gate fob on top of it,but it started to melt the fob out of shape.Left Cigs in ther with it and they tasted of Marzipan.
When i need a boost of Cherry due to a nasty,dirty smell,like when driving through
St Helens.I open the dash soft close door and B O O M,nasty dirty STs smell be gone.Open a Brand New one if your going near ther Rugby Ground helps,but cant get the stink out your nostrils.

I use the Coronado Cherry California scents tin, which Iím going to guess is the same as you?

I too thought it was too strong initially, as did some passengers. Iíve had one in about 6 months now, still smells good but not overpowering at all. I forget itís in the car but when people get in they always ask ďwhatís that smell itís lovelyĒ so I know they arenít talking about any gasses I may have dropped.

Maybe just try opening a tin partially and keep the vents on the top slightly cracked? Or, open one fully and leave it in the garage a few weeks before putting it in the car. It is a strong scent.

I tried the autoglym spray air freshener, and I bought a citrus concentrate to make my own which I spray the mats with when I hoover the car out, but it doesnít last more than half hour or so. Maybe Iíll make a super concentrated version but I canít see any sprays beating the California scents.

Maybe just try a different scent and see if that meets their approval. Iíve only ever used the cherry one and Iím very happy with it, after the initial opening!

Do you get it from the Autosmart mobile vans? My local one seems to cover a massive area and I can't see the driver just wanting to drop off a can of Blast.

Cool used to be my fave but my rep doesn't stock it anymore. I've had to settle for Designer, Berry, Bubblegum etc
