Best car air fresheners 2020 Car accessories
Despite selling in there hundreds of thousands every year, air fresheners are still either loved or hated by drivers. Spray versions tend to be the best solution for many people, because they can get rid of unpleasant smells, but don’t hang around in the interior for weeks. All you we get in car accessories.
From mirror hangers and vent mounts to designs that pop under the seat or in a cup-holder, there’s plenty of choice and an array of scents. So which will clear the air in your car? We sniffed out 10 to find the perfect cabin companion in car accessories.
How we tested them
Fragrance was at the heart of the test, so we lined up a panel of eight ‘tasters’ to rate the perfumes. We also assessed durability over three weeks to see how long each lasted. Car accessories, Scratch and sniff panels that let you try before you buy scored points, as did some way of controlling the fragrance flow. Prices quoted are RRPs, although these played a relatively small role as no product was expensive.
Jelly Belly comes out on top with its fragrant and practical spray bottle air freshener. Previous winner Refresh comes in second place while newcomer Angelwax takes third with its clever self-measuring spray.

ReviewsJelly Belly Spray Air Freshener
The small-button spray bottle is perfect for keeping in centre consoles or gloveboxes for that quick freshen-up to remove the smell of garden rubbish, wet dog or takeaway food. You pay for that convenience, however, because it’s the most expensive choice here per ml. car accessories
Key to its success is that great tangerine smell, which was all our testers’ favourite. It has none of the cloying sweetness often found in air fresheners, and just delivers a citrusy aroma.
You get 2.5 ounces of gel with this can freshener car accessories, so it was no surprise that it was one of the strongest at the end of the durability test. You can also control its release through the vented twist top, and the smell of fresh linen was one of our tasting panel’s favourites. The scratch and sniff panel could be stronger, but add in a competitive price and impressive versatility, and you have a winner.
In an often basic or gimmicky sector, there’s a rare upmarket feel to this “heavenly air freshener”. The piano-black cap delivers a measured dose of fragrance and odour eliminator even after the trigger has been released. This is a neat touch, and it means you don’t risk applying too much by repeatedly pumping the spray. (car accessories)
It is designed to be sprayed on to fabrics and carpets, so you need to keep it off leather and hard surfaces. Eden has staying power, too, still clearly present a week after being applied; it’s the best on test in this respect. It’s sold alongside the firm’s Bliss scent, with the Eden fragrance said to be a mix of exotic fruits. Our testers noticed hints of these, but other products have a strong smell such as the Jelly Belly Spray. This isn’t cheap, either, with pricing similar to the small-pack Jelly Belly Spray(car accessories).
Home-turned-car air freshener Febreze claims this “eliminates odours”, and the cotton fresh perfume here is certainly strong. There was a little too much of the toilet freshener about the fragrance for some of our tasters, so it couldn’t match the popular Jelly Belly, but at least the flow can easily be controlled. Price is competitive and makes this well worth considering if you find a perfume you like(car accessories).
Neat kitchen jar in miniature design houses the most popular fragrance on test. Our panel loved the sweet “coconut bay” aroma, which just stayed on the right side of sickly sweet. Sadly, this wasn’t enough for the Car Jar to overcome its drawbacks – namely that there’s no way to try before you buy or to control the flow of scent. If you can do without these features, chances are you’ll love the Yankee Candle perfumes.
All will get you in car accessories.
