Get Stuff for Your Car at Bath & Body Works. Seriously!

Where do you go for car stuff? If you're like a lot of guys, definitely you'll go to car parts store like AutoZone for parts, a cheaper alternative like Walmart for basic fluids and wiper blades, and maybe there's that one or two times you've picked up a little tree air freshener at the car wash.

Have you ever tried Bath & Body Works? Yes, really.

I only discovered the secret of Scentportables because I have no problem tagging along with my wife almost anywhere she goes.

Sure, they're a bit expensive to start with, having to buy a dispenser and then a $3.50 oil pack. But this isn't the fake pine or sickly sweet berry you get from Pep Boys that gives out in a week, this is quality stuff made by people who do fragrances for a living, and it lasts.

And the holders are pretty damn cute. Heidi has the pineapple in our CX-7.

Perhaps anticipating that the usually female clientele (I've only seen one other guy there in all the trips I can remember) might either buy them for their hubbies or try to match their car interiors, they've got plain silver, tan, and I've got a plain black.

The holders come in vent clip and visor clip versions. The scents have a pretty wide range, too, from matching their Beautiful Day body spray (the new smell of our family Mazda, mostly driven by my wife) to less flowery or fruity smells like the eucalyptus mint I picked for my Pontiac.

They'd probably sell a helluva lot more of these things if they'd sell them through retail outlets that see more "car guy" foot traffic than Bath & Body Works, or maybe their plan is to get us to come in there and see that they have a small section of men's colognes and body sprays, too. They're in the back, usually on the left wall, past all the big displays of Hawaiian flower sprays and hand soaps in the scents of every fruit imaginable.

Scentportables are definitely worth going outside a guy's "comfort zone" to find.
