You just had to know sooner or later a product like this would come along targeting (pun intended) us shooters/outdoorsmen. In fact, I blogged about it last year in my Club Outdoors blog. Hoppe’s #9 gun cleaning solvent ranks as one of the most recognizable outdoor scents…my guess is right behind the essence of skunk. Seriously, check out this news release. I’m definitely buying this product for my truck this fall.
New Hoppe’s No. 9 Air Freshener
Overland Park, KS — In 1903, when Frank Hoppe developed a mix of 9 different ingredients to create the original Hoppe’s No. 9 gun solvent, he had no idea that history was being made. Over the last 107 years the smell of Hoppe’s No. 9 has evoked fond memories of fathers, grandfathers, memorable hunts and great days in the field.
In response to consumer requests, Hoppe’s now has an air freshener with the unique No. 9 smell. The freshener has a string for hanging it in your gun room, car, garage, or anywhere you want the nostalgic smell of Hoppe’s No. 9.
Brett and Kate McKay, authors of the book “The Art of Manliness” list Hoppe’s No. 9 as one of the top 15 manly smells. The Hoppe’s No. 9 Air Freshener will be available at your favorite sporting goods and/or hunting store and will sell for a suggested retail price of $3.99.
