Air Wick Crystal' Air
Advantages: Lots of different scents and colours, good value, smells very pleasant
Disadvantages: Can't really tell when it's run out, can't turn it off
Our house isn't a particularly smelly one (!) but I do like it when I come home to a lovely smelling home and when people come over and I know that they're greeted with a nice smell. So last year I thought I'd try out a couple of these Crystal Air discs from Air Wick as I didn't want anything that cost too much, and I've been using them ever since.
These are just small round glass discs which have a coloured scented gel inside. The gel continuously lets off a pleasant scent and the pack says that the smell lasts for 4 weeks. The disc is only very small so it looks perfectly nice wherever you put it. This is one of the reasons I decided to go for this air freshener as it's not big and bulky like some others and it looks very nice. You can either lay it down or stand it up on the flat base at the bottom of the disc and it looks lovely wherever you put it with the wavy coloured gel inside it.
These come in quite a few different colours and scents so it's nice that you can buy one that blends in with the colour of the room you're putting it in. The different scents include Berries & Spice, Freesia & Jasmine, Lavender & Camomile, Magnolia & Cherry Blossom, Morning Mist, Mulled Wine, and Vanilla & Festive Spice.
I always use the Morning Mist scent for our living room as it's a pale blue colour which matches very well with our colour scheme. I always forget that it's there as it's very small and sits nicely on the shelf next to the sofa. I often find myself thinking what's that nice smell? and then realise that it's coming from the Air Wick disc! The smell of the Morning Mist one is very fresh and welcoming and I love the smell that it gives off as it makes my living room seem much cleaner, fresher and generally nicer.
Like most air fresheners these aren't particularly cheap but they are cheaper than most. Each disc costs around £2.30 from most supermarkets but when they last for a month, that's not too bad value. Actually I'm sure I bought my one more than 4 weeks ago and the smell coming out of it is still very strong now so they do last for as longer, if not longer, than they're meant to.
The only couple of small disadvantages with it is that it's a continious smell so you can't turn it off and you also can't tell when it's run out apart from when the smell stops working so I guess you'd have to notice that it was no longer giving off any scent before changing it for a new one.
I will continue to use these as they create a very pleasant smell in my house and I feel quite proud that my house smells so nice when I have people over. The smell doesn't drift over the entire room but more in the immediate area around it, but it does its job perfectly well in my opinion and I think it's a fab little air freshener.
Summary: A great little air freshener
