“ Brand: Air Wick / Product Type: Air Freshener „
I bought this air freshener from my local shop. I have pets and so sometimes my home smells of pets as all homes do when we have animals living in the home. My home is just like any other home and sometimes needs refreshing just to help it smell a little better.
I bought this air freshener for only a £1 from my local shop some time ago and only just recently used it. It comes in a canister of 300ml. It has a press down nozzle which doesn't stick when pressing it. It has just the name on the front with purple flowers. It means that I don't lose the top and just have to pick up the can and spray it.
It gives an even spray and a very fine mist. It isn't one of those heavy sprays that is too heavy and so it is too wet and doesn't land on my furniture or tables. This spray is just a nice even spray. I just spray it in the centre of the room for a couple of seconds. This is enough time for my home. I usually spray for longer if I have cooking smells that have lingered a little from my kitchen. It is good for removing curry smell or for when I have cooked fish. These smells do tend to linger for a while and this spray works well to help remove them.
This helps eliminate nasty smells in the home in no time at all. It has a nice lavender smell and one that I find really nice. I cannot smell the camomile at all, all I can smell is lavender, but I am happy with this smell. It is quite a strong smell and does last in the room it is sprayed into for a while after spraying. So it does have a lasting smell, which is a good thing because it means it is a good quality spray.
It is not to be used on surfaces, fabrics or near food. It is best to use it with care and not use it also near a naked flame.
I have used this spray in my bathroom. It has removed the bathroom smells well. I have found it good value for money. I like the way it works for my home without having to keep on spraying just to get results. Just a quick spray is enough and so the can does last longer than some other brands. It also doesn't have a direct spray as some brands do and squirt on a wall etc. this doesn't do that at all. It does annoy me when sprays directly come from the can because it means that I have to clean the area it has hit. Not with this one, no problems at all, so for my home I am happy with this spray.
I like this spray, I recommend it because it is worth the price and has a really nice smell to it. One I think most people will like if like the smell of lavender.
I rate it 5 stars.
I'm sure much as we'd all like to deny it, our homes can all sometimes have some nasty smells; whether it's the bathroom, pets, curries anything. When this happens it's essential to have a good quality air freshener to ideally both remove the smells and add a nice fragrance in it's place. I have tried several of these products the one I am reviewing now is the Air wick Lavender and Chamomile.
I chose this one quite simply because Air wick is a company I have used for many years and so I trust them to create good products. The scent appealed because I love the scent of Lavender and find it quite a calming scent to have around the home.
The aerosol tells me that this is an all in one product and is designed to have a long lasting fragrance. All in one means that it will both eliminate nasty odours and freshen up your home. The scent is designed to be of "aromatic lavender essence, herbal notes rounded off with gentle camomile and precious woods."
This is all well and good but does it work?
As soon as I got home after buying this I sprayed it. Not because it smelt bad but because I just wanted the place to smell of Lavender! The nozzle is easy to press with an indent that seems to fit my thumb perfectly. The spray is quite powerful but this is fairly normal for scented aerosols so didn't worry me.
The dominant scent is definitely that of Lavender and this is all you can really smell to start with. Once it settles however there is a very faint woody undertone to it but this is barely noticeable, I would still say that the scent is that of Lavender. I don't know what Air Wick classify as "long-lasting" but I've found that this can still be smelt for around two hours which I guess is a long time for an aerosol as all too often they disappear almost as soon as you have sprayed it.
As for covering bad smells I use this in the bathroom and in the kitchen to cover the smell of cooking curry. I've found that it removes both of these without any problems. I was a bit concerned the first time I used this as it seemed to just be covering the smell rather then removing it but this didn't last long at all and within a few minutes the bad smell had gone and was replaced by the lavender.
As with all aerosols this comes with a few warnings, namely that aerosol abuse can kill, the carton should not be pierced or burnt even after use and should not be stored in sunlight or above 50degrees. It should also not be sprayed directly onto surfaces, food or fabrics.
It should also be kept away from sources of ignition, this includes not spraying near heat sources or electrical appliances. You should also avoid contact with your eyes and avoid breathing the spray. ( I never understood that last one, isn't the whole point to breathe it since you're using it to scent your home?)
This can also be recycled once empty.
Price And Availability
I bought my 240ml can from ASDA for £1.19 but it is on offer allowing you to buy 2 for £2. It is however widely available online and in supermarkets. Prices may vary so shop around.

I'm giving this product 5 out of 5 as it does exactly what it's supposed to and the scent does linger longer then most other aerosols I have tried.
You may be aware that I'm a great lover of lavender, particularly as it's such a calming and tranquil fragrance. The aroma of lavender always conjures up images of the beautiful flowers blowing gently in the wind.
A product that I have been using for many years is Air Wick's Lavender air freshener, which is manufactured by Reckitt Benckiser and is contained within a 300 ml pressurised can. The manufacturer frequently seems to change the design of the product with the one I own being slightly different to the picture above. It contains an additional 33% free and is lilac coloured on the lower section of the can with stunning images of the lavender plant. We are advised that this product eliminates odours and adds fragrance to the air.
I was surprised to learn that Air Wick was formerly Haze and it was not until I scrutinised the can for the purpose of this review that I realised that it is written in large lettering on the front!
To use, you simply need to remove the lid (which seems to have disappeared from my can) and as far as I can recall, it would never sit tightly on the top. The air freshener is dispensed by way of a white push down spray and is released horizontally, which dispenses a fairly good amount of the product. Unlike some other brands, the spray could be described as a mist, so therefore reduces the risk of it landing all over your expensive furniture.
What I love about this is that it is very natural smelling and is almost identical to the real thing. I simply cannot bear artificially scented lavender products, which in my opinion is a real insult to this beautiful plant, which is much favoured by bees.
I find the fragrance quite powerful as it lasts for approximately one hour or so, which is considerably longer than other branded air fresheners. I totally agree with the claim that it eliminates odours, as in my experience, I always find it extremely efficient and effective, particularly in getting rid of those lingering cooking smells.
As this is a pressurised container we are provided with all of the usual cautionary information, such as do not smoke when using, make sure the area is ventilated before spraying and do not pierce or burn.
I cannot recommend this product highly enough, particularly if you are a lavender lover. It is multi-purpose as far as I am concerned because as well as eliminating odours and fragrancing my home, it also enables me to feel quite calm and relaxed.
If you are interested in purchasing this product I would advise that I have checked out the Tesco website and was surprised to see that it has again been updated and contains chamomile and is now marketed as a 4 in 1 as opposed to a 2 in 1. Obviously, there are a few versions available, particularly as Home Bargains are selling the product identical to the one that I own. Tesco currently have an offer where you can purchase a 300 ml can for £1.00 where you are saving 36p until 5 October 2010.
Air Wick aerosol air fresheners are available in a few other fragrances, such as Peach and Jasmine and Mulled Wine. Whilst I have never purchased the Mulled Wine as a spray, I have used the plug-in and can confirm it's aroma is simply stunning and perfect for Christmas and those cold winter months.
As this is such a gorgeous product it receives 5 out of 5 dooyoo stars from me.
When it comes to smells in the home, I like to make sure my house always smells clean and fresh rather than musty or of food being cooked. I usually always have an aerosol spray in just in case of any smells and just to add something to the scent in the air. I am not normally bothered about the scent as I like to try different sprays but this time I picked Lavender & Camomile spray by Airwick, as it seemed to have quite a nice combination.
The Airwick sprays come in really pretty cans, this particular one comes in a deep lilac can. It has a swirl of lavender flowers on the front and then has the Airwick logo in green to create the perfect balance. It has the spray nozzle at the top and comes in a 300ml can which is quite a lot. It has a very floral and fresh look to the design and stood out to me almost right away.
This spray should be kept out of reach of young children. It has a pressurised container, to protect it from sunlight. Do not spray on a naked flame or any incandescent material and avoid contact with the eyes. In case of contact with the eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice. If swallowed, also seek medical advice immediately and show this label, do not breathe spray. Use only in well ventilated areas and people suffering from perfume sensitivity should be cautious when using this spray.
DIRECTIONS OF USE
This spray should be shaken before use and the spray will be released vertically. This should not be sprayed directly onto surfaces, on food or fabrics. In case of contact with surfaces, wipe immediately with a damp cloth then recycle when empty.
With this aerosol, I normally give it a shake before using it and then push down on the button to release and the spray comes out with quite a powerful force. I use this spray on all smells from the bathroom, to cooking smells, to general spraying around the house. It rains down once sprayed and isn't too overpowering with lavender, it has the slightest back hint of camomile which creates the perfect blend of smells to make an overall nice scent in the house.
You don't need to spray too much of this at all to get a good result. I tend to spray a bit longer though for heavier smells and it does usually get rid of most but if strong you may have to spray a good few times to really get it gone. The house always stays with a faint lavender hint as any guests always come into my house and comment on the lovely smell which I inform them is my Lavender and Camomile aerosol. The smell won't obviously last all day as that is something an air freshener would do but for an aerosol I was very happy with the results.
The smell is described as being a characterful, unique fragrance of aromatic Lavender essence, herbal notes rounded off with gentle camomile and precious woods. It really is this and the slightest smell of the woods does seem faint in the background but is apparent.
So, if this sounds like a spray you might like or you love the smell of Lavender then this is a definite for you. It is currently on offer at Asda at the minute for £1 instead of its RRP of £1.60. The price is great considering it will last you a good few months which to me is really good value for money.
