This is not something I have gotten for free This IS something I do purchase (at full cost) every time I need an air freshner for my car. This little sucker packs a powerful punch. I find it much stronger and longer lasting than other car air freshner I have used. I think that the price is basically the same as other brands. I won't buy any other car freshner besides Yankee Candle. Other brands tend to mask the smell for the first few days, but this one completely neutralizes and eliminates the smell of smoke or other not so nice smelling things that may linger around your car.
This scent is fantastic, and the design is cute (I love miniatures of anything), but these car fresheners don't last very long once you use them. You get maybe a couple days of overpowering scent, and then a week of your car smelling amazing, and then it's done. I might buy one if I were preparing to sell my car and wanted it to smell nice, but there are a million other products out there that work better for long term use.
I am a lover of Yankee Candles but I have to say that I am not a huge fan of their car jars. Sure, they smell like the candles... for a few days. I just don't feel like they last long. Also, I believe the gel inside is supposed to "trap" bad odors. I don't really think that's true. It just shrivels up quickly and the scent is gone. Not worth it in my opinion. Do yourself a favor and just pick up their jar candles instead.
I literally have this hanging on the rear view mirrior of my truck and let me tell you....it smells amazing! I've had it in my truck for a week's now and it still smells amazing ! Personally I will never buy another car air freshener unless it is a Yankee candle Car Jar Ultimate! The pink sands is a subtle tropical scent and I absolutely love it and I think you will too!
