Jelly Belly Jelly Bean Air Freshener
Advantages: delicious smell, look funky
I always like having a funky air freshener in the car, from a little furry "ugg" boot to a cute Hello Kitty one. A few months ago I was in Asda and they had a special offer on a car air freshener and as the one I had in at the time was starting to fade I decided to pick one up. The range on offer was the Jelly Belly Bean air freshener.
Jelly Belly are most famous for their Jelly Belly beans but they now sell many different items including candy canes, candles, mugs and car air fresheners. I absolutely love the beans sweets and candy canes so I thought this was an ideal thing to buy. There was several varieties of flavours available at the time. I chose the Blueberry flavour, much to my daughters disgust as she wanted me to buy the pink one!
The air fresheners are a gel/plastic 3D design and come sealed in a plastic cover on a cardboard backing. The cover is see through so you can see the air freshener in full and the shape is a jelly bean. In large lettering on the bean you will see Jelly Belly on one side. The packaging is covered in various jelly beans in all different colours and the flavour is shown in a large colour border at the top. On the packaging you will find a small scratch and sniff area so you can smell the flavours before choosing the one for you.
Hanging the air freshener in the car couldn't be more simple, attached to the jely bean is a plastic hanger which simply hooks over the plastic on your rear view mirror and thats it! The jelly bean hangs down a reasonable length though it isn't so much that it gets in the way of your view of the road. I personally think it is the perfect length for me though my dad gets a little irritated by its swinging when he is driving the car.
I put the jelly bean in the car as soon as we came out of Asda and the scent was detectable immediately, so much so that when my mum came back after putting the trolley away she could smell it as soon as she opened the door. The smell of the jelly bean is just so sweet and fruity, it really does smell good enough to eat. Every time I got into the car after that it just smelt amazing, much nicer than any other air freshener I have ever had and it lasted for a long time. It's only now, just over three months down the line that I am struggling to smell it, though other people who travel in the car have said they can still smell it well enough.
The range of flavours in the Jelly Belly air fresheners is really quite good, such as bubblegum, very cherry, tangerine, blueberry, juicy pear, and tutti frutti. As I have only had the chance of smelling the blueberry I can't comment on how the others smell but going off the one I have I am sure they will smell as delicious and fruity.
The price I paid for the Jelly Belly air freshener was just £2 and I think that it was a bargain because it really did make the car smell fantastic, lasted a long time and is a nice quirky thing to have hanging from the rear view mirror. I will be buying another very soon, in fact I may even look on Ebay after writing this review and choosing a new one - but it will have to be pink to please my little girl! I have to say that I think these are more of a female thing than a male thing as my dad and brother really don't like them, but thats not to say all men will be the same!
Thank you for reading my review.
