Make your Jaguar smell fantastic for your next road trip out of Irvine today by checking out our guide below!

Clay Disc & Essential Oil Air Fresheners

The best places to find clay discs are either online or at Coto De Caza craft stores. Here, you can also find a variety of essential oils to choose from, allowing you to swap out scents to keep your car smelling fresh longer.

Items You Need:

  • Clay disc
  • Your favorite essential oils


  1. Rub a generous amount of essential oils onto the clay disc.
  2. Let the oils soak for a while, then place the disc in your car.

Felt and Herbs Car Fresheners

Save money when you decide to create your own car air fresheners instead of buying them. Don’t want to use oils? Try herbs. To revitalize the scent, simply crumple the felt bag in your hands every so often. Here’s how you can make your own.

Items You Need:

  • Felt in any color you like
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • Thread and needle
  • String
  • Your favorite herbs


  1. Cut out two pieces of felt. Make sure the sizes and shapes are identical.
  2. Sew the felt pieces together, creating a baggie for the herbs.
  3. Place the herbs inside and sew the top closed.
  4. Punch a hole into the top.
  5. Put the string through the hole and tie the two end-pieces.
  6. Hang your new air freshener on your rearview mirror or air vent.

Mason Jar Air Fresheners

Mason jar air fresheners are perfect for those who want a more discreet way to freshen the cabin. Stow these away in cup holders or under the passenger seat and keep your vehicle smelling wonderful.

Items You Need:

  • Small mason jar
  • Cardboard
  • Nail
  • Baking soda
  • Your favorite essential oils


  1. Remove the lid from the mason jar.
  2. Use the metal lid to trace a circle on the cardboard, then cut out the circle.
  3. Use the nail to poke holes into the cardboard.
  4. Fill the jar halfway with baking soda.
  5. Add drops of essential oils.
  6. Replace the metal ring with the cardboard circle you just cut out. Secure the circle with the metal ring. Save the metal circle for later.
