This goldplated bejeweled hunk of plastic air freshener is without question the greatest of its ilk I’ve ever seen. I, thank God, had the presence of mind to buy the entire stock of two when I saw them at a Pic ‘N Save in the mid-90s and one rode around on the dash of my ’55 Studebaker Commander until I just couldn’t take the glut of sticky sweet strawberry fumes any more. Which was a blessing in disguise as I almost killed myself several times when the glare from the sparkling gold multifaceted fist almost blinded me.
Made in Taiwan by Allison Industries, this “powerful car and home air freshener” is activated by holding the wrist with one hand, unscrewing the fist with the other and exposing the openings in the bling to adjust the amount of fumes I mean fragrance you want choking I mean filling the air.
One jewel was missing from both fists though on different fingers and no jewel was loose shaking around in either box.
It’s amazing to me that someone would pilfer a jewel leaving these beautiful fists behind but I’m sure glad they did or I wouldn’t have their beauty (and stench) to behold today.
The ultimate fist of fury. Can you imagine being inadvertantly impaled by said fist? The ER docs would be horrified, this is true, but I would feel a strange measure of pride.
It’s gorgeous in person.
That is pretty amazing. Looks like it should be a hood ornament.
where can i buy one from??
No idea. I got it at least 15 years ago from an auto supply store.
I’ve never been fisted with freshness but, I hope to be very soon. 😉
Have one myself — with all knuckle jewels. Wish I had kept the packaging. Bought mine in a drugstore in Queens, NY about ago. Think I might have seen it once or twice on the dashes of NYC taxis and care services.
Thanks for the post!
Should have said bought mine about 20 years ago.
And it’s car services.
So great you have one. I wish I had bought the place out.
