New car smell makes me physically ill.
Looks like it is not just you!
oh my god, just thinking about the smell seriously makes me car sick 🤢
yeah, that smell just brings back bad memories of dizziness D:
It brings me back to when I was 8 years old getting into my Grandpa’s new Dodge Ram van in the middle of summer and immediately feeling like I’m going to be sick. Ever since I just can’t stand that smell.
Same, never understood how my parents seemed to like it
New phone/laptop smell too, I’ll bet.
I’d be interested in a study to see if car salespeople have higher rates of cancer than the general population since I’m assuming they spend more time in new cars than anyone else.
I read these are specific designed smells
There must be a specifically designed smell which can be applied, if you buy used from a dealer it also has the “new car” smell.
