Advantages: Offers an extremely natural orchid fragrance
Disadvantages: None for me
If you are familiar with my reviews you will be aware that I love smells. I best clarify that statement, as what I actually mean is that I love beautiful aromas and I'm a huge fan of products that fragrance my home. I see my home as my haven and I always use different fragrances dependent upon both my frame of mind and the time of year. For example, during the winter months I favour spicy and deep aromas whereas in the summer months I opt for zesty and floral fragrances. If I'm feeling a little down in the dumps or under the weather I will chose lavender, which is one of my favourite scents due to its' calming and relaxing properties. My preferred method of home fragrancing during the warmer months is with electrical plug-ins and as a result, it is very rare that you will find a free socket in my home.
My husband often whinges at the vast assortment of scents, which alternate from room to room. Whilst I adore burning candles, especially those belonging to Yankee, I tend to use them more often in the dark and colder evenings. A product that I discovered only a few months ago is one belonging to Frebreze, a brand owned by Procter and Gamble and is part of a newly launched range. I have to state that previously I would rarely use spray air fresheners, as I would never find their aromas long-lasting, but my opinion has since changed since discovering a few brands; one of which is this product. Consequently, this review discusses my experience with using Febreze Thai Orchid.
APPEARANCE OF THE PRODUCT
I had absolutely no difficulty in locating this product on the supermarket shelf, as it is provided to us in an extremely eye-catching cerise coloured 300ml aerosol can. The design is quite distinctive, as whilst the majority of similar air fresheners offer a dispenser that has been incorporated into a bulky style lid this product has a large unusual plastic shaped area contained within the upper section. It looks rather futuristic with its' curved and sleek design and it is evident that considerable thought has been put into its' appearance. The familiar Febreze logo can be found on the front of the packaging and situated below is a small flower image and located inside are images of a beach scene, which I assume are intended to replicate the beauty of Thailand.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH USING FEBREZE THAI ORCHID
Firstly, I would advise that my main reason for purchasing this product was that I required something to deliver an instant fragrance to my home. Whilst my husband has no issues with smelling the unfavourable pong of cabbage long after we have eaten our meal, it is not an aroma that I wish to witness. Whilst it is the packaging that initially attracted me to this product and the fact that Febreze is a trusted brand, it was the description of the fragrance that had me captivated. We are advised that the product is "inspired by the delicate fragrance of fresh Thai orchids for a moment of relaxation and zen".
Located at the upper section of the can is a transparent plastic trigger, which needs to be pulled back to release a fine mist of beautifully fragranced spray. Unlike a few of the other air fresheners that I have used in the past the spray is evenly distributed without dispensing in one short spray that subsequently dampens everything within the neighbouring area. I am not a fan of artificial smelling fragrances, so I was thrilled to witness a very realistic orchid aroma, which although floral is very delicate and fresh. The scent is powerful enough to instantly eliminate that horrible cabbage pong and as a result, it leaves its' subtle aroma, which lingers for a good hour or so after just a few sprays. I find this product perfect for those situations when I wish to give my home a quick boost of both fragrance and freshness prior to the arrival of any visitors. Whilst I am not a huge fan of spray fresheners this is definitely my favourite from all of the brands that I have tried and as a result, it receives 5 stars from me together with a full recommendation.
INGREDIENTS AND OTHER INFORMATION
For some unknown reason there are absolutely no details of any ingredients provided to us on the can, which is something I find a little strange. However, we are given the usual warnings, such as not to pierce or burn the container and to keep away from children and from the eyes. We are also advised that those people who suffer with skin sensitivity should be cautious when using this product. The can is suitable for recycling once empty.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
Febreze Thai Orchid is available in most supermarkets and at full price will cost you around £3, which in my opinion is a little pricey. However, Tesco recently had an offer where you could purchase 2 cans for £4, so my advice is to wait for the offer to reappear.
I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.
