    Default Checking on getting some military oriented air fresheners. Need input.

    I have been thinking of doing this for years. There are certain smells or scents that really bring back my military service. I see it when I take my deuce to regular car shows and the vets smell the canvas. It really seems to take them back to another time. I love the smell of the canvas. I also like the sweet smell of the powder that seems to linger in ammo cans. I was in artillery and the powder canisters really smelled of that sweet smell. I have also found the smell of diesel smoke seems to take me back to my military days. My son loves the smell also. I am amazed when people think it stinks. I have wanted to make this and sell them at events on online. I think there may be a market for them. I want to do all three. The problem is to do a custom scent I need to get 5000 min. I don't have the juice to speculate on 15000 air fresheners that may or may not sell. I may be able to try one scent out first them try to get the others if things work out. The pole is going to ask what scents you guys would be interested in. I am shooting for a price of around $5 each but am not sure until I can work some numbers. I hope to be able to do it for less. The more I make the less it costs. So on to the market research. If you have another idea for a scent let me know.

    Thanks

    I am reminded of the Marine who put ODOR EATERS in the insoles of his combat boots.

    Three paces later he disappeared.







    Carry on.

    I picked up a load of canvas and a lot of it ended up in the back seat of my truck. It smelled like canvas for weeks.

    There wasn't an E option - "All of the above, plus helo turbine exhaust"

    Cheers

    PS - a slightly related story, in that it entails air fresheners and the military. My son was returning aboard Camp Pendleton in his POV and got stopped at the gate and given an "Obscured Windshield" ticket by an MP, because he had an air freshener hanging from his mirror.
    "Can I just take it off now?"
    "No. Here's your ticket".
    To get the ticket dismissed, he had to go down to the JAG within 10 days and show that he had "corrected" the discrepancy.

    Does anyone remember the strong scent of the Latrine burners work each morning? Really made you in a hurry get on the road.
