My Wife’s Car Smells Like Little Jimmy

No, not that Little Jimmy. Get your mind out of the gutter. It smells like me as a young lad. I couldn’t figure out why. I smelled the air freshener dangling from the rear view mirror.


I’m not sure what a breeze in the Bahamas smells like, but this air freshener smells like a tropical drink. I’m also not sure why my wife even needs an air freshener in the car. She always smells good to me.

So, I wasn’t sure where the Little Jimmy smell came from until I spotted this …


It’s some sort of air freshener filled with a liquid that gets wedged in the air vent. That one doesn’t smell like Little Jimmy either. I think it is the combination of the 2 air freshener smells mixing together that creates an odor reminding me of my youth, specifically my hair. Ah, my hair. I remember it fondly. I wish it would call, or better still, come back for a visit. It’s welcome to use our guest room.

Anyway, the 2 air fresheners combine to form a scent reminiscent of a young boy’s slicked-back hair in the 1960s. I was a Vitalis user for a while back then in my youth.


No, not that Vitalis.

And definitely not that Vitalis as a fresh-faced youth. This Vitalis …


It’s been around for quite a while as you can see from this ad …

I’m not going to say how old I am, but I remember using Vitalis when it only had V-6.

These days I find that driving my wife’s car leads to feelings of nostalgia in me. Not for the 1960s, but for my hair. Well, at least I’ll always have my memories. Oh, and I also have all my hair I pulled from the shower drain. It really fills out a pillow nicely.
