Suggested car air freshener fragrances

If the decision makerses of any car air freshener companies read this, here are some scents that I'd like to see (or, well, smell):
  • New action figure (the best smell ever)
  • Grilled onion
  • Three minutes after a thunderstorm
  • Freshly peeled birch or sassafras bark
  • Dixie Chili
  • Sour apple
  • Envelope glue
  • Mom's purse (leather & spearmint)
  • Freshly sawed wood
  • Green aftershave
  • Name brand fabric softener
  • Hospital floors
  • Popcorn
  • Fire-roasted cantaloupe (toss a whole cantaloupe in your next camp fire for a few minutes, fish it out, cut it up, and enjoy)

Any of these would also make great scents for Febreze and Oust, BTW.

Good list, but you left out some of the best.

Old book.
Thanksgiving dinner in the oven.
Lit charcoal.

You serious about the cantaloupe? That sounds like something I would like. ow long do you leave it in? Put it in hot coals like a potato or in open flames like a marshmellow?

Oh, I would like to add the smell of my dads garage.

Yes, indeed.

Just toss it in the coals.

Make sure the skin is tough and doesn't have any punctures.

Turn is every now and then and let the skin get all roasty. The skin is rather tough, so it can take it.

Roll it out when ready and let it cool, the transfer to the picnic table and hack away.

This is a practice-makes-perfect thing, so bring a few and try roasting each a little different (hotter coals, longer, etc.).

I discovered this while camping with some friends in the Monongahela National Forest. I had a cantaloupe in the car and we tossed it in the fire to see if it would explode. It didn't, and we went ahead and ate every last bite. The fighting over the last few scraps would foreshadow the way in which the Marvel Zombie Super Heroes would fight over, um, fresh meat.

Good stuff.

I would add fresh coffee, warm day at a Theme Park, hot donut.

So you are the guy that's been sniffing hospital floors.

Any father has slept/attempted to sleep on a hospital floor while the mrs./ms. was in labor.

The smell is best described as "anti-bacterial."

Mmm...ditto the thunderstorm and sassafrass. And the fresh coffee. I accidentally left a bag in the car the other day and when I opened the door the next morning it smelled divine.

Not so sure about smelling, let alone sleeping on hospital floors?

...and my mom's purse smelled like pot (oh to be a child of the 70's)

To the list I would add:
freshly cut grass
bahama mama, sangria or mojito(that way I can pretend I'm on my way to the beach rather than the grocery store)

The alcohol scents might not be the best for a car. It kinda reminds me of some scents of incense they used to sell at The Second Time Around on 4th Ave in Huntington back in the day. Why would anyone intentionally make their dorm room smell like "ganja," "blunt," or "mary jane?"

Use plants and cut flowers. Fresh flowers, in pots or cut, introduce chemical-free fragrance.
