    Default C4 Parfums

    What with Valentine's day approaching, what do you buy the Woman with Everything, including a new C4?

    Scent, that's what. We've tried Vanilla which is a bit warm and sickly after a while and on the weekend slotted in some Ylang Bamboo. That's nicer; gently perfumed, fresh, not too sweet.

    So, C4 people, any recommendations? Any of you use/like/love/loathe this feature?

    I think I'd like to have the smell of fish & chips, with salt and vinegar on wafting through my car.

    Strangely, they do!!! Years ago when I worked at a citroen dealer, My job was to prepare the new car ready for the customer to collect.
    When the car arrives from the factory off the truck and covered in dirt they don't really smell of anything. It was down to the cleaner/ polisher i.e. ME to make it smell like a new car. I did this by using a scented polish on all the plastic and trim in the car. That was nearly 20 years ago now, and I can still remember the smell.

    The new car smell is actually toxic if I remember correctly.... It's all the fumes and residues given off by the paints, plastics and leather trim (if fitted).

    As for perfume in the car ... you gotta be joking ... Why would I want chemicals being released in a small enclosed space

    My sister has one in her car, everytime I get in it, I either throw the thing in the glovebox or out the bloody window ... Stinking bloody chemical sh!t in the car

    Sounds like you're with me on that shane, you can't beat the smell of a nice bag of chips with salt & vinegar!

    Either a rotten banana or discarded fish head is a much more effective tool to control cabin odour - and they're both 100% natural and biodegradable .

    But you would only do that to someone you REALLY didn't like!!
    We did that to a bus driver at work last year, we put some rotting fish in the heater ducting. I pity the poor passengers come to think of it, no I don't, they should buy a car! john s

    Some time ago touring France in an AX11, we left some Pont l'eveque (?sp.) cheese under the front seat accidentally overnight. Don't suppose that would affect Shane's longevity much, but all the same...

    There are chemicals coming out of every pore ATM anyway, I suspect. So a slight whiff of something pleasant would do little extra harm. The trick is to find something...um...subtle, hence the posting. Plus something which improves concentration and heightens the senses rather than something which precipitously increases libido is what I'm after. Well in the car at least.

    I find that a quick drive through Hungry Jacks/Burger King and a large serve of onion rings usually provides enough toxicity for a long drive. Mrs UFO has for some reason banned the consumption of onion rings whenever there is even thought of a car trip.

    I find the best thing is a good clean of a car and treating the seats with leather polish gives a nice classy smell to the car - as opposed to the above
