    Found the secret to new car smell...

    My 3 year old car had the new car smell this morning when I went out to it. I was AMAZED!!

    Heres how I did it.

    Get a black can the energy drink "Full Throttle". It must be the black can as different colors have different flavors. Then leave the can half full overnight. If it matters, temps were in the high 40's, low 50's. 10 hours later the smell was unmistakable and spot on. New car smell.

    What I want:
    In exchange for this info, I want a lifetime supply (12 bottles/year) of the stuff. And maybe a $100 cash award.

    thanks

    Either that or buy a new car when the scent fades away!

    You realize, if a company actually replicated the new car smell accurately, it would be a billion dollar idea.

    I don't know how this makes the smell, but its a starting point to make the it. All they would have to do is replicate the smell of the energy drink and ration it to the right amount ingredient/air mix.

    Many years ago I was talking to a man that sold scents whosale. I ask him for a new car scent sample that did smell like a new car. He said that it was a fantacy scent and it couldnt be made. He did give me a sample of popcorn scent that did smell like popcorn. I ask him who buys this , and he said theaters. They spray it around and it makes people hungry for popcorn.

    The reason that new car smell can't be made is because every new car smells different. Go sit in a BMW, then a chevy, then a nissan, and they will all have the new car smell, yet it will be a bit different for each. Also, leather vs cloth makes a big difference, as well as other materials.
