The Yankee Candle Company makes scented candles you can keep in your car.

According to the company’s website, Yankee Candle’s Car Jar Ultimates give “long-lasting fragrance” and “will keep any space smelling great for up to a month!”

Not only that but, according to an article published by CNET, they do a good job getting rid of cigarette smoke smell, too– if you’re not a very heavy smoker, that is.

ALL TIME TIP: CNET recommends beachy and cotton fragrances for eliminating the smoke smell.
