I was at a friends house recently and when I asked how the house smelt so nice she pointed me in the direction of this little thing. Knowing that, I then went out to buy one.
They are clearly called discreet because that's exactly what they are- discreet and barely there. I have a sensor air freshened and whilst it is very effective it does look quite big sitting on the window sill. This one is a small rectangle plastic shape with a slatted front obviously for the smell to come through.
It comes packaged with a plastic cover and all of the information and instructions on the card backing. Inside the packaging is the unit and also one of the plastic aroma things wi
Hitch goes inside.
To set it up is really simple. All I have to do is take the smelly part and peel off the foil, which is very easy to do, and it comes off in one piece. Once the smelly part is released from its foil, it should be pushed from the bottom up into the unit ensuring the part free of the foil is pointing outwards.
When it is set up, which takes merely minutes then it should be plugged into an electrical socket and left to do its work. I have the clean linen fragrance and after about an hour of it being in the hallway at the top of the stairs I could definitely start to smell the scent, which was very pleasant, nice and light and fresh. Because it has to scent the hallway and the stairs it is a very subtle smell but I would imagine that in a more confined space the smell could be quite strong and would definitely be a smell you would have to like. For me the intensity of the fragrance was sufficient on the stairs and in the hallway.
When the refill needs changing the gel goes hard and obviously there's no more smell so it's easy to know when a refill is needed.
The RRP is I think around the £5 mark and this includes a refill. However I bought mine from my local bargain store for half this price so as ever it's worth shopping around. I Have also seen the units available in supermarkets.
This is an effective air freshened and does give a nice fragrance. The refills are around the £2 mark and with it on constantly, it lasts around 6 weeks or so, which means for me it's good value And more pleasant than spraying a fragrance as the smell is more consistent.
The fact that it plugs into the socket and sits flush to the wall means that it is very discreet. It is best to place it on an open wall because then the fragrance is able to be easily spread round the room.
Worth the money.
Thanks for reading
With owning hamsters and being a smoker I get paranoid about how my home smells and I get through an awful of air fresheners on a weekly basis. With my parents coming to visit this week I have been revamping my home a bit and trying to make it more cosy and comfortable and so when I saw these on sale for £3.00 each instead of closer to £4.00 each in my local Asda store I bought one instantly.
There were a couple of different fragrances to choose from and the one I have plugged in now and with the packaging in front of me is the lavender and jasmine fragrance which I bought for my living room.
This comes in see through plastic packaging with cardboard backing and on the cardboard there is lots of pictures of lavender and jasmine blossoms on there and we are told that it is Johnson's Glade 'Soothing Lavender & Jasmine' and that it has a 'Sleek profile' unit and we are told and shown where you get the unit we are told and shown via diagrams how to use it. On the back of the packaging we are told a bit about the product and warnings are given (as well as in foreign languages too) and contact details for the manufacturer are listed. Nice enough and not too much packaging here thankfully.
Well what you get is a sleek and rather modern design of plug in. The front of it is a square piece of white plastic with four lines to the front of it and you get a backed piece of lilac coloured gel that you pull out off a piece paper and side it into the unit which is easy and mess free and then turn the unit on.
There is nothing to think about with this unit. No up and down switches, no on and off switch. You simply plug it in and we are promised up to 30 days of fragrance and rather a few days in with this constantly on....yep its still dispensing a rather strong fragrance of lavender throughout my home.
I really like this unit. It looks nice and doesn't get too hot which is a worry with plastic being plugged into the mains. The smell is fresh and not one bit sickly and dispenses constant fragrance which is definitely more of a lavender fragrance than anything else and this, from me gets full marks on design and fragrance!
Available in all good supermarkets etc.

Just wanted to comment on the packaging for this product. After seeing it on a TV ad i thought i would buy one. On getting it home the difficulty was opening the packaging. When i finally took the scissors to the cardboard i cut straight through the instructions. What a silly place to put them. There is plenty of room on the back for these. I almost cut into the gel, luckily i didnt as the product would have been useless.Nice product nice smell terrible packagingLynn Webblynnwebbos1@sky.com
