Default Things that smell

Today'* topic: Air Fresheners

What general scent do you like to run, and what brand/type preference do you like if you have one?

Mine: I prefer cherry, only because it fits the theme of the car. When I first bought the car, the dealer ran some kind of spray, but I can't find another smell like it. It was a cherry, but not like the cherry air fresheners available widely. The ones I can find smell more like candy cherry then the spray that was used. I appreciate any suggestions in this regard as well.

Really don't use anything. Some of them are so over powering.

When I was younger I used to like the blue new car scent christmas tree air freshners. That smell brings back memories of all the cars I miss.

These days I don't use anything though, as my eyes are very sensitive and anything in the air makes them burn like crazy. My car generally smells like new leather though, as I use the Zaino Leather conditioner and it is the best smell ever. I wish they made that in an air freshner. I would keep one in my pocket.
