That "New car smell" is the combination of various possibly toxic materials fermenting in a hot car for a long time. [R]

Getting back that new car smell [R]

Hey guys,

I have washed, polished, sealed my paint and vaccuumed, scrubbed and cleaned the interior. It looks near perfect, but it's 4 years old. How do you guys recommend getting back that new car smell (obviously through a simulated fragrance)? I saw Adam's has pumpkin spice interior cleaner of all things, but was wondering if there was a similar recommended product to give me that nice, clean new car smell.


Edit: There's really no option to ozone the car near me, so I ordered the top rated ~$70 ozone generator on Amazon. I'll report back with results this weekend.

Edit 2: I ran the ozone generator Sunday for 30 minutes with the AC on recirculate. Drove for about 15 minutes with the windows down/ AC running to try to clear it out and parked with the windows cracked for about an hour. A day later I have a little residual ozone smell. I have a feeling that like u/king_agiii said, it will smell like nothing at all after the ozone smell clears out. From there, it will either continue to be scent free, or if outgassing is still ongoing, maybe I'll get that new car smell back, but I'm not gonna hedge my bets.

I'll give it another week before trying a leather conditioner, then finally a "New Car Smell" spray if I can't get what I'm looking for.

ULPT: Before selling or trading in your car, use WD-40 to conceal scratches. The oil fills in the gaps and leaves a glossy look similar to clear coat. The scratches will reappear after a wash or after it rains. [R]

Do you smoke in your car? How do you remove the smell? [R]

I haven't tried yet, but would be interested if I knew I could remove the smell or it would go away.

I'm not sure how well it would work if you smoked daily, but every time when I come home from the lounge, my car smells. I spray about twice or three times inside the car, and the next morning, no smell.

Best air freshener? [R]

I have a new car so I still have that new car smell. I want to keep it that way. The little trees car fresheners last about a day and a half. Whatever the best car fresheners you use?

If we could capture & share odours/scents on social media like we do with Pics/Videos/Audios today, what do you think would go viral ? And what odours/scents would you be sharing ?

I would like to get a perfume or something that has the fragrance of that "new car smell". I love the smell of a new car and would like to spray it in my car every now and then if I can.

This is the Chemical Guys version Chemical Guys AIR10116 New Car Smell Premium Air Freshener and Odor Eliminator (16 oz) more of a consumer than a dealer one but from what I remember the smell is very very close. Meguiars also has a comparable one I believe as well!

To-Do's after buying a new car? [R]

So i bought my new 2016 Mitsubishi Montero Sport (an off-roading family vehicle) and i want to know what are the must Do's and Dont's.

Some tell me dont drive over 80 km/h for the first 500 km, some tell me put it on N, lift the hand brake, switch to P. (I have an electronic hand brake, do i still need to do that?)

Edit: Title sounds stupid, should have been (Do's & Dont's after buying a new car?)

Would appreciate any advice on how to keep my car in perfect shape for now and the long run.

My chicken pox medicine as a kid smelled like fountain pen ink (the pilot cartridges). Some shower curtains have that smell, along with other kinds of plastic/rubber. What is that smell? [R]

I thought New Car Smell came in a spray bottle, which is why used cars from a dealership have the scent also. I suppose for actual new cars it might still be real.

Que piensan de Seat? [R]

Hola /r/mexico =D mi amiga piensa comprar un Seat Ibiza Blitz 2015 nuevecito de agencia y queremos ver qué piensan de la marca o del coche en general. Es de buen rendimiento? Alguna precaución con Seat, con Ibiza o en general con un coche nuevo? Que experiencias han tenido ustedes con coches de esa marca?

Evidentemente es para usarlo en la ciudad y pues no tiene un chamaco que andar cargando o alguna mascota que pueda subirse de vez en cuando; sería solo para ella. Gracias /r/mexico =D

They have chemicals that you have to buy in bulk. Its kind of hard to get exactly the same stuff. I've heard great things about chemical guys new car smell. Maybe you can try that?

Edit: I almost forgot, I've seen the new car smell come back after cleaning a car really well. Removing the source of foul odor in a car will bring it back to its neutral scent.

Trying a new CG product. This stuff is confirmed legit. [R]

Bottle looks different, but they only make one version. Someone noted below CG is changing the label "look" but products are the same. I just ordered one up!

Here ya go bud

Reviews: Let me start off by saying I buy and use lots of products from Chemical Guys. I find most of them excellent and urge anyone to give them a try. They are like Chemists gone wild. lol Their prices are reasonable. Now,I recently bought New Car even after the reviews posted here and I think it is much better than what others have written. I simply sprits the interior of the car twice (two trigger pulls) and that lasts about a week. The stuff is on the concentrated side so DON'T spray too much. A little goes a long way. The smell may be strong at first but it mellows out within a day. It does not smell exactly like a new car but it does have a smell that is rather pleasing - not tropical or fruity. I can't describe it other than very clean like. Like others, I have tried other types of air fresheners like Fabreez and this smells the best or even the nearest to what a new car should smell. I actually use it around the house. Anyway, give it a try. ★★★★★

First off the new car smell is what I think a new car smells like BUT the biggest thing does it last well the big answer is NO it does not..not at all!!! I can spray 5 to 8 sprays of straight product in a four door pickup in the morning when I park for work and 10 hours later when I enter truck no trace of new car smell what soo ever... the only time you can smell it is right after a few sprays. .... I dont know if its old or bad batch r something. I wish it lasted a little while at least bc I actually like the scent. Its not worth my time nor headache to return. But the bottle says last weeks not days and one spray my bottle is FAR from that statement!! I wish this would have worked out bc I like the scent soo sad :.. ( ★

Or, this

Reviews: I really wanted a fresh leather scent for my Acadia SUV. After the "new car smell" wore off, I found myself craving a clean, fresh smell everyday. I had tried Chemical Guys leather scent and Griot's Garage leather scents with somewhat disappointing results (Chemical Guys wears off VERY quickly in a day or two--heck, even the bottle of it barely retains any scent after a month or so and Griots just doesn't really smell much like leather at all to me and again, wears off quickly). I found this to have the leather scent I was looking for and actually lasts. I would definitely buy again. Its the only thing I have tried that actually gives you that "new car leather" smell. ★★★★★

It's ok but not as good as I was hoping for. Perhaps if I keep trying it will actually do what is suppose to do. Not a bad product I just expected it to be better.★★★

Hey, so my job is manual labor. I ride my bike everywhere. My room smells like dude. What should I do to make it not smell like dude without having it smell really fruity or sweet.
