Hoppe's No. 9 - Now an Air Freshener

Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

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.

This is funny, but I bet

This is funny, but I bet people will shell out the bucks for it.  i like the smell when I am cleaning my gun, but I do not think I'd use it as an air freshner.  I think that is taking it a little to far.  Heck just take one of those deer lure wicks and soak it in the real thing if you really want to have the smell around you.

No thanks, but now if they come out in a man's cologne, well then, just maybe
