I started to DIY my car’s scent a few months ago and I’ve never been happier with the way my car smells. I never had a smelly car, but I just wanted to make my car have a nice ambience to it. I wear perfume because I love it, so why not perfume my car?
Here is how I scent my car. I start with my clip on air vent freshener that is specifically made for doing DIY scents. You can place a cotton ball inside it fragranced with whatever essential oil you would like. Vanilla and sweet orange smell great and are easy to find. Peppermint are eucalyptus are brightening and purifying scents, and there are plenty of floral scents that you can try that are super girly.
Put about 4 drops of essential oil in the cotton ball, then place your cotton ball in the DIY air freshener. You can combine similar essential oils for a nice combination: lemon and orange go great together because they are both citrusy.
My ultimate secret to customize your car’s scent is to use your favorite perfume, and then decorate your air vent clip in a way that complements your perfume’s scent. If you are using a floral perfume, glue a camellia or rose on your vent clip. If you are using a sweet scent, glue on some colorful rhinestones that look like candy. The possibilities are endless, get creative and have fun!
