I have been a longtime Febreze consumer. I remember, in my senior year of high school and freshman year of college, it worked great to hide the cigarette smell in my car (shhhh, don't tell my Dad.) Long after I had quit smoking, I used it to cover up the smell of dirty baby diapers. And now, I use it to get rid of smelly cat boxes and general ick that comes about living in a house with preschoolers. No matter what the use or circumstances, however, I have always been thrilled with the results-I think Febreze is a quality brand that makes a great product.
I was recently given the opportunity to host a Febreze House Party to intoduce some new products, and since I consider this my real home and y'all are my besties-I figured I would transform it into a VIRTUAL house party and host it here! I'm going to tell you about some new products Febreze is introducing, let you know my thoughts on them, then give you the chance to take a goody bag home with you! Sound good?
The first item I got to try out was the new Flameless Luminary, in the scent of Pomegranate Mango. I just love the idea behind this-it is a battery powered light, that when illuminated and covered with a shade, looks just like a candle! The best part? The shade is scented! You replace the shade once a week, and every time you light up the luminary you get a boost of scent! I was a little worried I was going to hate the Pomegranate Mango-I tend to gravitate toward herbal or natural scents, and dislike fruity scents because of their tendency to be overpowering and sickeningly sweet. Not a problem with the Pomegranate Mango-it is delicious, with just the right amount of power and sweetness! But if you get sick of it, you can just buy a different scent when you get shade refills-so many different options!
Another item I had the pleasure of checking out was Febreze's new Scented Reed Diffuser, also in Pomegranate Mango. I love diffusers-such a great way to get a constant, light scent. If you need a boost in strength, just flip the reeds over! The Febreze diffuser was no different than others I have tried-the perfect continuous fragrance.
Most excitingly, I was sent this little goodie to check out. Brand new, it is not available in stores or on the Febreze website. It is called the Set and Refresh, and it is intended to replace those icky little cones you may have hanging around the house (or in your gas station bathroom, which is where I most often remember seeing them). It comes with a packet of scented oil, and when you place it into the slim, nondescript, attractive holder, it allows a bit of the fragrance to escape continuously. No plugs, batteries, or candles necessary. You just set it up and let it do it's thang. It took me all of five seconds to pop the oil container in, and it has happily been covering up the litter box scent ever since. LOVE!
