I like to have an air freshener in my car just to keep it smelling nice and take away any bad car fumes or anything like that that might be present. I vary the air fresheners I have, usually I buy whatever is on offer at Halfords or the petrol station and one of the ones I like to buy is the Magic Tree Airfreshener. These are quite common and you see them pretty much everywhere air fresheners are sold.
They look like, yep you've guessed it, a tree but there's really nothing magic about it. These trees are great and I have used these many times before in my cars. The trees are made of a fairly thick cardboard and look just like a pine tree to me. They have the same branch structure and trunk to them. The trees have the word car air freshener written on them on the bottom portion and then the fragrance of the air freshener written on the other side. Usually the colour of the air freshener corresponds with the colour of the flavour too. For example, the strawberry scent is coloured red.
When we first got our new car we actually got the "New Car Scent" air freshener to keep it smelling a bit newer for longer but I generally like a nice fresh fruity smell so often go for the strawberry one. When you first put one of these in your car the scent is very strong and sometimes overpowering but the relents after a few days and you are just left with a nice fresh scent.
There is a handy string at the top which you can use to hang the tree from either your rear view mirror or I like to hang it around one of my indicators as that way its out of my line of vision and not really in the way. Priced at just £1.99 per air freshener they are quite good value and do last for quite a few weeks. You can pick one up in most motoring stores and are a product I recommend.
What a lot of people forget is that these are suppose to be hung up WITH the plastic cover to stop the fragrance evaporating, which looks awful. I use fabric sprays and just have my hanging one as a decoration.

I need to replace my car freshener as the Yankee one I have in there dried up a month or so ago and I've been too lazy to change it! x
