“ Brand: Febreze / Product Type: Air Freshener „
Febreze is a range of household products including cleaning liquids and home fragrance products. Today, I will be reviewing the Caribbean Paradise air freshener spray which is part of the Air Effects (not Mist and Refresh as stated above) range that Febreze offer.
This air freshener is designed to eliminate household odours rather than masking them. It has a special odour elimination technology and a non-flammable propellant which is made up of 80% nitrogen. As you would expect, the scent is designed to be exotic. A plug in and a candle in this identical scent are also available.
This air freshener is presented in a tall, attractive can. The can is blue with a floral design and features a trigger spray. The illustrations on the cannister show a sandy beach and some flowers and an open coconut - very exotic looking. The important product information and safety guidelines are noted on the can and it can be recycled once empty.
~Where To Buy~
Febreze is available from most supermarkets and stores such as Wilkinsons. At the moment, a 300ml can of Caribbean Paradise can be bought from Asda priced at just £2.00. The normal price is around £3.00 a can.
Febreze is my favoured brand when it comes to buying air fresheners. I like to keep my home looking and smelling fresh so spend quite a bit on extra scented goodies to enhance the cleanliness of my home and make it appear welcoming to guests. I always buy Febreze when it is on offer and find that in the long run, it is better value for money and more pleasant to use than the cheaper Glade air freshener sprays.
I have tried most of the Febreze sprays and whilst pondering which one to buy recently, I ended up deep in conversation with a fellow shopper who recommended a few of her favourites and I recommended a few of mine. I eventually opted for Caribbean Paradise at £2.00 a can (I bought from Asda) and this was a tough choice as I like most of the scents that Febreze offer! Anyway, I chose this particular one as I knew I liked it and I also like the plug in too.
Using this spray couldn't be simpler. The can is well designed, comfortable to hold and perfectly easy to store. I have never had issues with the trigger spray on Febreze can and this one is no exception. A quick pull back on the trigger whilst aiming the can into the middle of the room results in a fine mist being propelled into the air. What I like about Febreze is that the mist seems to cling in the air rather than immediately dropping to the floor. As we have mainly wooden flooring in our home, this is an excellent aspect as our flooring isn't left wet or slippy.
I use this around my home when guests are due or to eliminate cooking or unpleasant toilet odours (sorry!) and find that it works very well indeed. It isn't the strongest Febreze scent but you don't need to spray lots for the desired effect. It quickly eliminates odours and leaves my home smelling immediately clean and refreshed. I adore the scent of this particular spray as it is beautifully exotic and noticeable in the air without being overpowering or cough inducing. It is definitely the ideal scent to have lingering during warmer days and evenings as it fresh and Summery. I notice a lovely fruity, sweet scent which smells very natural and not at all synthetic like with cheaper air freshener sprays. I can pick up on pineapple, mango and perhaps a touch of something citrussy. If I spray this in the room that I am sitting in, I notice a creamy coconut undertone to the scent which I love. It is a well balanced, cocktail sort of scent which I find leaves my home smelling gorgeous.
I find this spray to effectively refresh each room in my home and leave it smelling clean and welcoming. The scent lasts longer than with cheaper sprays and is no where near as harsh - it just hangs in the air in a pleasant way. I notice the scent of Caribbean Paradise to last for an hour or two but the actual freshening and eliminating aspect of this spray to last several hours which I am impressed about. It is light, fragrant and tropical.
A 300ml of can of Febreze lasts well as you don't really need much per use. I find that with daily use, there is often still some left after a month or so. I can highly recommend Caribbean Paradise if you are a fan of exotic scents. It is well worth buying and I will be re-purchasing. The quality is excellent and you get a lot more in terms of scent and longevity for your money compared to cheaper sprays.
Thanks for reading :)
My daily household cleaning regime air freshener as I think it just gives the house a nice, clean fresh scent as opposed to cleaning products and chemicals. I'm going through a Febreze phase at the moment and one of the air fresheners I've used recently is this Caribbean paradise one.
The air freshener is quite widely available to purchase from supermarkets and a 300ml can usually costs around the £2 mark. It's worth noting that there are a few different fragrances in this range, not just Caribbean paradise.
The can for this one is the same shape as the rest of the range being cylinder for the majority of it and gradually getting thinner at the top where the trigger is. The trigger is long enough to fit a couple of fingers over it, it isn't as long as cleaner trigger sprays but it is still easy to pull back. It has quite a vibrant blue colour to it meaning it stands out on the shelf compared to the more neutral coloured air freshener cans.
After pulling the trigger a fine mist appears from the end, it does tend to linger for quite a while whilst floating down. For that reason, I tend to spray away from the direction I'm going to be walking in as it isn't very pleasant walking through the air freshener. The Caribbean paradise name indicates that the scent is going to have a Caribbean twist to it and it's not wrong. I would explain the scent as a mix between coconut and pineapple; it definitely has a fruity twist to it.
I spray my whole house with this, starting upstairs and working my way down. The air freshener does give a nice smell for a while, it takes away the horrible cleaning smell and leaves behind a fruity smell that starts off quite prominent. The only problem I have with this air freshener is that it doesn't last very long and within three quarters of an hour the fruit scent has disappeared. However, once the scent has gone, it doesn't reveal the horrible smells that it was sprayed over as Febreze has a special formula that claims to eliminate nasty odours rather than just masking them and it lives up to the claims it makes.
The air freshener is quite expensive for one where the scent doesn't linger for very long. That being said, I would still recommend it as it does get rid of unwanted odours and smells lovely when it's first sprayed.
I like to have a lot of nice candles and aerosols around the house to spray whenever there's a musty smell about. Usually to counteract this we open the windows and doors and air out the house as it were, but in the winter months when I'm already spending a ridiculous amount on heating and having to wrap up in lots of layers to keep the thermostat down low, I don't really want to open up any doors or windows if not entirely necessary. It just seems like a waste and in times like this comes Febreze.
Febreze is a very popular aerosol brand that you'll probably be familiar with from their many adverts which often feature people excessively smelling random items like pillows and sofas to show just how great they smell. As they explain in the adverts, Febreze claims to remove the odour and combine it with a light new fragrance rather than masking the smell.
The air freshener comes in a blue aerosol can. There is an excessive amount of flowers which made me think this aerosol would be less light and airy than their other product, particularly because other designs are usually pastel colours with a white accent however this wasn't the case so perhaps I shouldn't judge a product based purely on the design. Although in fairness as the product is 'Caribbean Paradise' the colours do resemble this and looks nice and tropical.
The can works by pushing down on a lever to release the fragrance. It is distributed evenly and if you hold on for a few seconds you get enough to fill the room/area with a lovely light smell. I would describe it as a coconut smell and you really get the sense it is tropical. It is light and not too overpowering although you must be careful not to spray too much as more than about 3 clicks will really fill the room with the fragrance.
It lasts a reasonable amount and having been using it every day or so, it still lasted the month. I got a lot of use out of this and really enjoyed the fragrance. The can has 300ml and you can feel the weight of the fragrance in the can. This is also useful as you can feel when you're running low and after shaking well you still have quite a bit left over for use.
Overall this is an excellent product. It really does get rid of all the bad smells in the room. A single spurt of the can will fill the room with a really nice scent of the tropic and you don't need to push the trigger too many times to adequately replace bad smells. Its cheap at only £2.00 and lasts for a reasonably long time also so you do get a lot for your money. The dispenser is really easy to use and also doesn't leak so you get the perfect amount whenever you spray.
I didn't actually buy this, it was left in a car we bought. A quick look on Tesco and Asda's websites tells me that it's £2 at the moment for 300ml, there's loads of different scents to choose from. The one I've inherited is Caribbean Paradise.
The can is turquoise with a fancy shaped lid. It doesn't have the usual push down button to dispense the spray, but like a pump action handle. It says it's 'Inspired by the freshness of exotic fruits enjoyed on a Caribbean beach enclosed by palm trees'. and that it 'Eliminates odours and freshens'. It is a nice smell but I'm not 'Tempted to roll up my trousers and build a sandcastle' like it says I might be!!. It comes with the usual precautions for example don't inhale- I wouldn't want to anyway as it's an intense smell!
The directions are to hold upright and spray into the air with a sweeping motion- so I did. I'm not keen on the pump action, it isn't as easy to just spray everywhere and takes a bit more effort to dispense than 'normal' aerosols. It feels more like a spritzer but does create a fine misty spray which doesn't settle on things.
When first sprayed it smells citrussy and strong, but then as it settles it's definitely coconut- the bathroom smells like I've just showered with the Bodyshops coconut shower gel, really quite nice.
It definitely covers any smells in a room for some time maybe an hour before it fades away leaving just a hint, but being a neutralizer rather than a masker the bathroom especially stays odour free. I don't need to use it everyday so this can has lasted ages.
I would buy it again but will probably try one of the other scents.
4 stars from me as I'm not too keen on the pump action handle.
I have been a fan of the original Febreze for years as I really like the fact that it doesn't just cover up and mask smells around the home but actually neutralises them and leaves the house smelling fresher again.
Although the original Febreze is fantastic there are also a couple of more exotic smelling versions which are all gorgeous although the Caribbean Paradise is probably my favourite one out of them.
The air freshener comes in a spray bottle but it isn't like the old fashioned sprays where when you spray it the freshener just shoots off in a jet. With this it comes out in a fine mist that is easy to disperse throughout the whole room that you are spraying it.
The smell is lovely and really tropical. It smells strongly of coconuts as well as exotic fruits. It's an unusual smell for an air freshener and one that really does lift my spirits when I spray it round the house. For me it smells like summer and sunny days and is a real pick me up in this cold dark weather.
It does a really good job of freshening up a room and getting rid of all kind of smells. I have a dog and it gets rid of doggy smells and over Christmas when I had family and friends over it did well as getting rid of the smell of food and also cigarette smoke.
It doesn't just mask the smells and I like the fact that I can still smell the fragrance the next day when I enter a room.
Also this doesn't smell artificial and I could actually tell this was supposed to be Caribbean smelling unlike a lot of air fresheners which claim to be one smell but just have a generic flowery smell to them.
It is quite expensive for an air freshener but I think it is worth every penny. It costs on average £3 but you can usually get it cheaper if you look around plus a lot of the supermarkets have these on 3 for 2 so you can try the Thai one too which is also gorgeous.
I really like this and think it smells gorgeous. A little also goes a long way so a bottle should last a long time.
I like to have something to freshen the bathroom but I tend to find that most stand air fresheners just don't work for long, candles I never get round to burning in the bathroom (and I would probably forget them anyway) and I like using electrical ones in there either; so what's left is the old fashioned spray can.
I wanted something fresh, invigorating and not to clinical. I saw the febreeze Caribbean paradise aerosol in the supermarket and it appealed to me not only because of the bright blue can and fragrance description but the fact it incorporated febreze, which is supposed to eliminate odours.
My fragrance is "inspired by exotic fruits, beaches and palm trees" according to the can. I gave my small bathroom a good spray when I got home and was immediately in love with the smell. It definitely has a fruit smell to which I find the most striking is coconut with a hint of pineapple. It is quite strong when you first spray but this disperses and the scent usually lasts about an hour. It would be nice if the scent lasted longer however as the spray eliminates the odours they don't come creeping back when the fragrance is gone so you don't have to keep going back and spraying over and over again.
It does smell very beach like and that matches the theme of my bathroom; let it transport you off to a tropical paradise.
The can is a sturdy 300ml canister with an adjoined top and a firm spray trigger that is very easily to use with little force. As with all aerosols spray away from you into the air, so as not to get it in your face, especially the eyes. Never done that but I'm sure it would be unpleasant, if you do wash your eyes with water preferably running from the inside out.
Also the other warning factors keep away from children, don't sniff it and as the spray is flammable and it's in a pressurized can don't pierce it or heat it!
Most recyclable bins know have the option for aerosols too.
So how much does it cost? £3 approximately. I know this may seem expensive but as a little goes a long way I feel it is worth it. Bag a bargain at the moment Tesco are doing 2 for £4! Until 4/12/12.
Review maybe posted on dooyoo and ciao under the same username.
I have been passionate about home fragrancing ever since I purchased my first home many years ago where I would initially use aerosol fresheners. However, as time has progressed we now have a multitude of choices with my favourites being electric plug-ins and candles. Earlier this year I was pleased when I obtained some vouchers for two free Febreze aerosols and never being one to turn down a freebie I made my purchases with this review discussing Caribbean Paradise.
I must admit that spray air fresheners are not something I generally tend to purchase, particularly as the scents last for only a short space of time whereas plug ins and candles fragrance for far greater periods. Appearance wise I find all of the Febreze air fresheners very appealing to the eye with their vivid colours and unique style packaging with Caribbean Paradise being of a calming turquoise blue. We are provided with 300 ml of product in a metal aerosol can with an usual shaped trigger action dispenser, so there's not fussing around with having to remove and replace the lid, which normally detaches itself over time.
Unlike other air fresheners, Febreze contains a nitrogen propellant and once the sturdy plastic trigger is lightly pressed the spray is released in a very fine mist. The concept behind Febreze is that in addition to providing a long lasting scent to your home it will rapidly eliminate pongy odours and stale smells. Whilst I enjoyed using the other fragrance (the name of which escapes me), Caribbean Paradise was lurking at the back of the kitchen cupboard and on dispensing the spray I am now able to recall the reason why. Unfortunately, I cannot bear the aroma of coconut as it reminds me of a horrible experience with my over indulgence with Malibu many years ago.
However, as one would probably expect, Caribbean Paradise offers a coconut aroma albeit delicate, together with the gorgeous aroma of pineapple (which was my Malibu mixer). As a consequence, I cannot bear the fragrance, as it brings back too many unpleasant memories. On a positive note, any odours are eliminated due to the patented Febreze technology, which will capture the pongy molecules and neutralise them, so there's no risk of them reappearing once the scent has died down. I cannot bear the current television advertising for Febreze, but I have to agree that the product lives up to its claims in relation to eradicating horrid smells. In addition, the product is marketed as leaving your home smelling fresh, but in my experience, the aroma disappears extremely quickly and is far less superior to rival brands such as Airwick.
Ratings this product is a little difficult, particularly due to my dislike of coconut. However, it performed well in relation to eliminating unwanted odours, such as cabbage, which tends to linger for ages after it has been cooked. However, I feel that its air freshening qualities are somewhat limited and as a result, I can award only three stars. If you are interested in purchasing this product it generally retails at £3, which I think is far too expensive, but until 21 October 2012 you can purchase two for £4 from Tesco.
I hope you found my review useful and thanks for reading.
I don't normally use spray air fresheners but a few months ago when I was visiting my boyfriend I noticed this on top of his wardrobe and after spraying it in his wardrobe to try get rid of the smell of his trainers I fell in love with the smell. I bought my own from Morrisons for £3.
The can of this air freshener looks a lot nicer than most, in my opinion anyway. Instead of the usual press-top spray of most air fresheners, this one has a trigger spray, which somehow makes it look more high quality and expensive. The trigger is easy to press and it gives a nice even mist of the freshener.
The scent is really just like you would expect, a tropical scent that reminds me of being on holiday. The scent is of fresh tropical fruits and it's quite a subtle beautiful scent, not in-your-face or overpowering, even though it's quite strong at first. I don't need to spray much in each room because the scent quickly spreads through the whole room.
This is not just an air freshener though, as you would expect from Febreze it is also an odour eliminator, so it gets rid of smells rather than covering them up. It doesn't eliminate odours immediately, it seems to take around 5-10 minutes after you've sprayed it for any unpleasant odours to completely disappear, but this is much better than most sprays that just cover up the smell for a while.
The only slight downside to this spray is that the scent doesn't seem to last that long really, I stop noticing it after about half an hour which is not great, but then again it's still better than a lot of sprays which seem to disappear almost instantly.
Overall though I really do love this air freshener and the can lasts ages, I've had mine months now and it still doesn't feel any lighter even though I use it loads!
I still have a little drop of this Air Freshener left and I have to say it is a really nice scent. I first bought it when I got another Car and I had left the Car in question all parked up and didn't go in it for a few months. This was because I bought it when it was a good price and I didn't have a need for it at the time, but I did know I had a need for it for myself so just got it and left it up my drive. Anyway when the time came for me to start using it and although I left the Doors open to air it the Car did smell a bit unfresh and slightly Musty, so I looked in Asda for something that would scent but also tackle the smells deep down and this range stood out for me. I have used other Febreze products in the past and find that they work well, but this scent wasn't 1 that I was familiar with but since it sounded so nice then I thought I may as well try it - especially when it was on a special offer price.
This comes in a 300ml tin and I think the right price for this one is around £3. I got this on a special offer Asda Rollback for £2 and after having a sneaky sniff in the shop I decided that this was a scent that I liked.
The tin looks alright. A nice blue colour and it stands out well enough on the shelf. Although the spray part may look a bit awkward, it's easy enough to hold and squirt this. This is designed to freshen the area you wish to freshen but also tackle the cause of the scent in the first place so it is designed to eliminate the deep down scents so that the scent shouldn't linger. I feel that this works good for this.
I sprayed a generous amount of this the night before I was going to start using the Car and the smell is a lovely Coconut-y scent. It isn't too strong or overpowering and there seems to be other notes in here as well, but this just smelt like a Sunny, Warm Coconut scent. Very nice and just the kind of scent that I like.
I could still smell this faintly the next day when I got into the Car and that was about 10 hours later. This freshened everything up and tackled the Musty scent. Also this is safe to spray on fabrics so you can schoosh this everywhere.
A really nice scent from a great brand. Just a pity this wasn't nearer the £2 mark all the time.
I am not a prolific buyer of household cleaning products. There are several reasons for this: the primary one is that I don't care about cleaning enough to bother buying an array of products for each individual little task, I prefer to use just one or two products as widely as possible which suits me well as I don't have a huge amount of storage space. Additionally I find that most packaging from these products can't be recycled, at least where I live, and I like to use items that won't result in lots of landfill. Finally I prefer to spend my money on something else; like a gin and tonic, for example, which leads me nicely to the topic of air freshener.
Perhaps I've become inured to the particular smell of our home but I rarely find that I need to use air freshener around the place. I tend to keep windows and doors open at every opportunity and much prefer to have a neutral aroma than an artificial one. Recently, though our netbook experienced a temporary death situation which meant that the two of us had to "share" the desk top in the spare room. For most normal people this would not be a problem but when, like I do, you have to share with a person whose typical snack regime involves a Pound of peapods, there are elements of unpleasantness. Having found that the nozzle on a cheap aerosol spray had irreparably clogged up, I made a mental note to purchase a new one.
Personally I find shopping quite a stressful experience, in part due to unnecessary amounts of choice; you just don't need so many different ways to create artificial smells in your house. It is better to mix a margarita or a gin and tonic fill your home with the zingy aroma of freshly squeezed limes than it is to agonise over the array of products in Wilkos, but it's not always ideal to start on the margaritas at eight in the morning, alas.
Swayed by a special price and the temptation of a scent called "Caribbean paradise" I plumped for a sky blue can of Febreze. A 300ml can should last me pretty much into the next millennium so even when my pension prospects are being abused, I'll have at least one thing to bequeath to my descendants.
A word first on the packaging. This tall aerosol tin has a trigger mechanism which is ergonomically designed to be easy to use; there's no chance, as I find with other products, that you'll cover your hand with air freshener when you try to spray. It's sturdy too and I doubt that this mechanism is going to jam leaving me with loads of product I have no way of using. While the top of the can fits nicely into the hand, you do need to be quite firm when squeezing the trigger in order to get an even spray, otherwise you get a spray of liquid coming out rather than the fine mist which is intended; I'd say you're probably going to struggle with this if you have arthritis in your hands.
The mist that is released when the spray is actuated properly is very fine and only just visible. It disperses very nicely and don't have time to settle on surfaces. Although this is a Febreze product it's a simple air freshener and there's no mention on the packaging that it's intended for special use on fabrics like other Febreze products, although neither are there any warnings to the contrary. As a result I tend to just give one quick burst of spray into the air above me and occasionally, if we've been cooking food that smells quite strongly I'll aim at the curtains but try not to get too close.
The scent is described as having "the freshness of exotic fruits enjoyed on a Caribbean beach enclosed by palm trees" and Febreze suggest that "you might just be tempted to roll up your trousers and build a sand castle in your living room". The smell is light and fresh with an emphasis on fruit but there's a vague floral scent in there too. It's a bit pineapple-y and a bit mango-ey but it's not cloying and over sweet. The smell lasts some ten to fifteen minutes before disappearing altogether although it does what it says on the tin and eliminates the original odour rather effectively. I'd much rather have a quick burst of scent than have it lurking all day, even if it is a nice scent. As for hitching up my trews and having a quick paddle I can't say I'm inspired, though it does make me yearn for a pina colada.
I'd recommend Febreze Caribbean Paradise air freshener as a quick fix solution; it's easy to use, deliciously fragranced and so far has proved effective even against the might of the legacy of many mountains of consumed peapods. If you prefer a long lasting method of fragrancing your home, Febreze do a plug-in with the same scent. The product is now selling in Tesco for £3 which is relatively expensive in comparison with a lot of brands and supermarket own brands but I find I use it so infrequently I would be happy to pay a bit extra. (If you are an ASDA shopper - and shame on you if you are, Walmart's evil empire must be defeated - you might like to know they have it on offer for £2 right now, while Ocado are offering 2 for £4 until 19th July - prices quoted by mysupermarket.co.uk)
As I mentioned in my last review while I might not be the cleanest girl on the planet I cannot stand bad smells in the house and that goes for any room. One thing I absolutely hate is going into the toilet when someone has been in there and it stinks to high heaven - I wont go into the room if thats the case and so a few weeks ago when I noticed we had run out of the small spray air freshener that sticks to the wall I thought Id buy a proper can as it would last longer. The can I chose was this 'Frebreze Caribbean Paradise Aerosol' which wouldnt have been a usual choice for me as I cannot stand the original Frebreze fragrance but Im so glad I took a chance on this one because it smells AMAZING - definitely the best one from this Frebreze collection.
Price: Around £2 as of this date - 12.04.2011
Stockists: All major supermarkets SHOULD stock this brand & scent.
Other Info: Comes in a 300ml bottle which is also available in Thai Orchid & Egyptian Mystique scents.
This air freshener comes in a bright blue, 300ml can that is decorated all over with little flowers - very tropical and caribbean Id say. At the top is a plastic lid - which cannot be removed - and underneath that is the trigger which you simply press in to release sprays of this scent. Even though it doesnt have a lid over the trigger I dont think that matters as I havent found that this sprays out randomly by itself or leaks out so the design is different but no less effective. On the front and back of the can is all the information you could need on this product - directions for use, cautions and an extra address to write to should you have any other questions or problems with the product.
To use this is very simple as its no different from normal air freshners. You simply push the trigger back a few times to release a few sprays - thats more than enough to get enough of the scent in my opinion - and then let it settle into the air in your room. The spray comes out very lightly BUT a enough comes out each time so only a few sprays is more than enough to fill the whole room with fragrance - using too much would make the smell too overpowering for me personally and you dont need loads to get maximum results from this. Ive been using this LOADS for about a month now and a quick shake of the can tells me there is barely anything gone from it so use a small amount and you will get brilliant results and a long lasting air freshener.
The fragrance was certainly the main reason I picked up this can - along with the gorgeous blue coloured can - and Im happy to report the scent is actually amazing, one of the best Ive tried so far. Have you ever had a Malibu & Pineapple and thought mmm this smells delicious? Well if you answered yes to that then you will love this fragrance as that is exactly what it smells like. Coconut mixed with pineapple which is means it is incredibly sweet and fruity - which is a mixture that is right up my alley personally and one which I adore. The scent fits in very well with the caribbean theme of this product and I dont think they could have linked the name and scent any better here. I think this will be one most people will like - although people who dont like very sweet air fresheners should maybe stay away! Having said that I adore it, and I like it even more because the scent lingers in the air and on fabrics so I get lovely wafts of this for hours after Ive sprayed it - it certainly has staying power!
The results Im even happier to report are just as brilliant as the scent as for me this does everything it promises. It gets rid of any nasty odours in any room of the house and makes sure that those horrible scents dont return by lingering in the air and on fabrics. This will make any room in your house smell gorgeous for hours ensure those nasty odours are a thing of the past - I highly recommend this especially while its on offer. The best Frebreze product Ive tried so far and I will continue to use this for a long time to come.
Thanks For Reading.
