    Has anything similar been tried elsewhere?

    I recall that a few years ago, Go North East put some sort of apple air freshening units at the front of buses.

    They've since disappeared so clearly they weren't popular!

    Disappeared because they weren't popular, or because they were very popular and got nicked?

    They were very discrete and plastic looking little things that would constantly push out a scent, usually positioned by the doors.

    Its possible people yanked them off but not because they wanted Eau de 309 in their homes :lol:

    The Paris Metro is trying that at a few locations and it’s very welcome as the network basically entirely smells of (at least) piss.
    Some buses in the Paris region have that too.

    Central Trains had some air fresheners on their trains in the Birmingham area (I remember them on the 150s, not sure if any of the rest of the fleet had it). All I remember is that the trains smelt like someone had spilt a tropical flavoured drink.

    Are you sure it's not just au naturale?

    (Probably better than the burnt rubber smell of the Michelin-tyred lines though!)

    It shouldn’t smell of burnt rubber, though.
