Rolls royce smell?

Hello All,


I am new to the ownership of Rolls Royce. I have read that these cars have a very distinctive interior smell? Is this correct? The car interior is very clean and I have had the front seats apart to repair the power seat motors and there is no visible evidence of any substance that would constitute a smell eg. mold etc...

Thank you all

you should smell only leather with some kind of wood combination. nothing else, if car is stored in high humidity condition that exactly creating kind of smell which you maybe describing

Hello

Thank you for the reply. The car has been in Florida most of its life and now resides in Canada. What are the effects of the humidity on the interior?

Yes, the leather smell is normal. Use a good quality leather cleaner and conditioner like Gliptone Liquid leather. Clean and condition the leather and you should have "That Rolls Royce smell"

Re: rolls ROyce smell

Hello again,

Please see attached I attempted to attach a pic of the car's interior to give you an idea of condition and this strong smell.


Thanks

Nice car. I wonder if the previous owner has hidden a leather smell air freshener in there somewhere? Just a long shot guess.

The "chemical guys" sell a leather fragrance spray that I use and love, smells like a high end handbag, keeps my car with a great aroma, link below!
