Yes. Have used the hanging, vent style and the large ones in a container you sit on your floor.

Maybe I stink....

I use the vent style... In the summer I like to go trolling a lot, and with that come some fishy odors cry

Personal vehicles, no.

The company trucks reek from chain smokers (even with a no smoking policy...), so I keep a can of Ozium with me. Occasionally I'll put a tree in the cab because my co-worker that rides with me is a cigar smoker. Something about the materials in newer Ford interiors (2003+) and cigarette smoke is a nasty combo.

Dogs ride in my truck and eventually it needs a thorough spray down with Fabreze with doors/windows left open till it drys and airs out.
Works great for me. I do this bout once a year.

I use Peppermint oil in the cabin air filter to smell nice and deter mouses.

I've got a Yankee Candle aerosol. One short spray under each seat after detailing.

Balsam and Cedar.

I don't but my wife and HS daughter seem to like the things, I think they are a waste of good money, but some battles just aren't worth fighting. I clean and vac the seats, carpet in the vehicles once spring and fall and then I drive with the windows a bit on all but the coldest days and that helps. My dad used to toss a couple of lumps of charcoal in the vehicles which would absorb odors pretty well. I am no fan of the scented house candles that my wife uses either. The smell of fresh brewed coffee in the morning is all I need.
