Air Fresheners - Really???

What am I missing? With modern air conditioning and weather tight seals, why do so many members use air Fresheners? I can sort of understand someone using a fake leather scent but anything else... Sorry I must be missing something because I just can't fathom it.

For me it comes from my general love for fragrances whether that’s candles, diffusers or perfume (I have quite a collection) I like anything that smells nice so I like to try out different airfresheners and have different scents in my car which I spend a lot of time in. Makes getting in the car more refreshing to me personally.

Thanks Danny- my thoughts probably stem from memories of cheap artificial smellies. I'm probably being a 'frag' snob tbh- when it comes to frags, I'd rather not use a cologne unless it was one I really liked - I tend to place cologne/perfume in to the same category as air Fresheners...

Our lass hates air freshners, perfumes etc - they give her a headache.

I usually have a california scent inside the arm rest, which gets closed up if she's in the car. TBH, I'll probably keep the same one there for anywhere between 6-12 months. I only have it because I like the smell (Coronado Cherry)

Oh! air fresheners every time for me. I also dust and apply a fresh layer of ODK Cabin regularly too.
I just love to climb into the car and be welcomed by a fresh smelling scented interior.

The only time I would not use an air freshener would be for the purpose of covering up some other odour such as Cigarette ( absolutely banned)or a dirty interior.

I love to experiment with different types too.
