This car air freshener supposedly helps learners pass their driving test
Hmmm we're not so sure about this one...
A new collection of scented car sprays has been launched by Pentagon Motor Group, designed to alleviate driving stress, annoyance and anxiety.
The range includes three sprays: ‘The Daily Driver’, ‘The Road Tripper’ and ‘The Learner’, all containing calming essential oils to restore relaxation when behind the wheel. The Automotive Atomiser collection isn’t currently on sale, so those wanting to get their hands on a soothing spritz must enter the competition via the Pentagon Motor Group website.
So, what do the three scents do exactly? Well, here is a list of them and their individual purposes.
This one is an 'anti-fail fragrance to tackle driving test doom'. According to the company, by combining sweetly-scented orange oil, known to help alleviate anxious feelings, with rich neroli commonly used to improve concentration, mood, and memory, then finished off with delicate lemongrass oil to help reduce tension, you should be all set to smash your driving test.
Disclaimer from The Pentagon Group: Although this scent is delightful and should calm the nerves, we cannot guarantee a driver’s licence after a few spritzes around the car.
The Daily Driver:
This one is aimed at 'solving sat-nav stress & traffic trauma'. Whether your sat-nav is a bit temperamental or you’re dealing with an endless string of traffic, stress is all too familiar amongst drivers. This spray can’t magically mute a backseat driver or make traffic disappear, but it does blend calming lavender oil with the negativity-cleansing properties of lemon, and stress-reducing yuzu oil to lift your mood and restore a sense of calmness.
All this may be a good potion to give Clarkson if he's getting a bit annoyed on a shoot...
The Road Tripper:
Last but not least is the Road Tripper which is a scent designed to remedy road rage and calm down your driving experience.
It contains 'rejuvenating powers of bergamot oil, the floral hit of calming ylang-ylang, and eucalyptus oil, widely used in aromatherapy to find connection to your breath and restore relaxation, and is designed to shift feelings of annoyance into positive thoughts to help you move forward.'
A quote from the Pentagon Group's marketing director:
Jonathan Lingham, Marketing Director at Pentagon Motor Group says: “We all know that our cars can be great for so many things, from breathtaking road trips to tasty drive-thru meals, all the way to catching a drive-in movie or that first drive after passing your test.
However, nobody can deny that along with these lovely experiences comes a few stressful moments, too. Whether your stress levels are hiked up by gridlocked traffic, your patience gets tested by children arguing in the back of the car or you’re feeling anxious ahead of the driving test that’s been postponed for the last twelve months - our new collection of three perfectly balanced scents will help to alleviate any bad vibes and create a drama-free driving experience.”
