New-car smell is going away: It's no good for you
By Hans Greimel, Associated Press

TOKYO — Anyone who's pulled away from the dealer's lot in a shiny, new car knows the seductive scent of fresh plastic, paint and upholstery that evokes a rush of pride and consumer satisfaction.

But that unmistakable new-car smell may soon be heading the way of the rumble seat: Recent research linking it to a toxic c o c ktail of harmful chemicals is spurring efforts by Japanese automakers to tone down the fumes.

So, I will miss that smell, I can say that.

And that makes me think, I miss the smell of fires in fireplaces.
That does not happen much here in South Florida.

Any smells you miss?

new car smell can be obtained with a Bissell Little Green Machine and a good 3 hour cleaning session with your seats :D

I saw that story about the deadly new car smell on the news last night. I always wondered about that....

The smell I miss? Bonne Bell Lip Smacker, Strawberry flavor.

Whenever I smell this (only strawberry!) instantly I think of Peter Frampton and '55 Chevys..... :anon:
There's something about Jergens (original almond scent) hand lotion, too...mmmmmmmmm! :lol:

I've got to say that I'm a fan of the new car smell, and I'll be sad to see it go. Of course, if it's secretly killing us all, then maybe I won't be that sad to see it go. I still have the wonderful fragrance of my diesel exhaust, though.

That so brings back memories of high school. That and the Vanilla frosting flavor (although I still use that flavor). My new favorite is Dessert Treats flavor in Lollipop. It smells so good, and its tasty also, like a little snack.
