In apply, there’s simply one thing so rattling alluring about it. Now, there’s a unique type of Ford Fragrance catering to that actual need, wealthy with gasoline scented goodness.
The premium perfume – hilariously dubbed Mach-Eau – comes after a Ford-commissioned survey revealed one in 5 drivers would miss the odor of petrol above all else, in the event that they have been to make the change from conventional to electrical autos. An extra 70% admitted they’d additionally miss the odor of petrol “to some extent.”
