About Car Air Fresheners
Car air fresheners have been around for generations, aging back to the 1950's. Much has changed since then, as we've moved from aerosol sprays to forms from A-Z.
It's estimated that over 300 million car air fresheners make their way into vehicles every single year. Rumor has it the first instance of a car air freshener making it's way to the market was a milkman using scent to handle the stale milk smell in the truck.
This is where the world famous little tree fresheners were born, and they have grown to become the behometh in the industry, all through the patented tree design.
Top Three Air Freshener Characters
1: The Maskers
Spills, stains = smells. Many a freshener makes their way into your car due to what has already happened as a way to either eat away at a smell, or mask a smell.
2: The Proactive Preventers
You folks know who you are, the people that take every step to prevent any bad smells from happening in the first place. Bravo to the tenacity.
03 The Statement Makers
You know that an air freshener is more than just a scent piece, and air freshener is an extension of your story. The little tree shape isn't going to cut it, you need a statement peice
These are three most common, not a complete list of the air freshener junkies out there :)
Let's Get You Fresh: Your Top Air Freshener Types
- Choice 1: The Hanger
As you can expect, you cannot have a list of top air fresheners without the hanging freshener on the list. These have been around since the beginning and have their place.
You can find these at just about every single mass merchant/grocery chain/store in existence. In parallel, many hanging air fresheners have different designs, which create a much more appealing and fun air freshener experience.
Delivers scent at all times (as long as the scent lasts).
- Choice 2: The Clip Ons
Clipped to the vents. These bad boys can come in a variety of different shapes.
Typically, these vent monkeys generate their scent while the AC/Heat is blowing.
Popular, however these are usually a small square filled with the scent. A basic choice.
Typically delivers scent only while air is blowing.
- Choice 3: The Plug In
Similar to the clip on, however these deliver scent at all times (similar to the hanger).
- Choice 4: The Can
Simply a can of scent. Could be a gel/wax or some other substance.
Open the vents on the can and the scent is deployed. ...Reminds us of our first car, hiding the cans wherever we could because they can be an eye sore.
Delivers scent at all times (as long as scent lasts).
