    Poppy Coral fresheners smell lovely but I was always a little disappointed with how long they lasted.

    I now use Magic Tree Vanillaroma (hanging off a rear grab-handle) and they smell lovely, and at only c. £1 a pop it doesn't matter that they don't last too long with the wrapper fully removed.
    I've noticed the Poppy Coral have different colour covers. Are the scents also different or do they all smell the same? What Cali scent did you try? I'll probz avoid that one.

    Which one did you use mate? Ive only tried a handful, bubblegum, cherry, vanilla, car smell are all really good and last a while According to halfords site they have 2 or 3 at £2 the rest are at £3.99 prob be cheaper still to buy of ebay! I too like Magic tree vanilla (the smell) just dont like the look of the yellow tree

    The plastic covers can be reused again and again, and soemtimes you can buy the pots without the covers, but from past experience (ebay) pick a seller who includes a couple of covers as the tins contents look pretty ugly without them. The bublegum gets my

    Okay, update!
    I went to Halfrauds and didn't know what to choose. So I decided to take 3 different air fresheners. I dislike air fresheners that smells of fruit/food or the ones taxis use. I like normal smell, if you know what I mean so that when I'm giving lifts to people, I don't want them to think I'm trying to mask an odour. It should be "Your car smells good" (like from the factory) and not "You made your car smell good". Anyways I've chosen the following three; 1) Magic Tree - New car scent, 2) California - New car scent and 3) Bahama 2D - Tropical breeze (I like these because of their unique theme, i.e. surf boards, holiday islands etc). All together it came to £9.97.

    So far I've only opened the Magic Tree one. I did this because I thought it'd be the worse out of the 3, so I thought just open it and get it over. But to my surprise it actually smells descent. I love it! For some reason it makes my car smell under 3 years old and makes it smell like it has leather seats lol. It even works better with the A/C on! Hopefully the other 2 can match or better it!

    Thanks again for y'all people's input! I would've not chosen a New car scent on my own let alone a Magic Tree air freshener as I think they are common. But now I know why they are! Cheap and smells great! Hopefully they'll last long. Thanks again!

    So far I have tried cali scents (laguna breeze and hawain gardens) both are soo weak that at first I thought they were fakes.

    I was then told they are all quite weak apart from the cherry one. So far I'm disappointed as they do smell nice, but they just dont have the power. Have yet to try the cherry one.
