What is the best "New Car" scent available that you pro's use?

I have tried numerous "New Car" scents, including Chemical Guys, spray types from pep boys, cans etc, but nothing smells like the real thing.

Is there any tricks, or a product out there that actually smells like it?


Thanks

Go old school - a dryer sheet underneath the seat works wonders.

I use Z-9 & Z-10 and am very happy with it.

LA Zaino is the West Coast Distributor, you can drive up there and pick it up in person at the 10 & 405, or get it the next day if you call them and order it.

Chemical Guys are also located in SoCal with showrooms in Whittier and Inglewood.

I don't think Z-10 has exactly "new car smell", but it does works like a charm with Z-9. It took me a while to get use to it, but I don't think it has an annoying smell like another leather conditioners.

You can buy directly from them, they ship very fast.
