Jelly Belly Air Freshener
Advantages: pleasant smell, good value
Disadvantages: Not strong enough for me
I recently bought a jelly belly air freshener for the car. My intention was to try and cover up the smell of damp that has been building up in the car from transporting wet wetsuits, surfing and scuba diving gear around. As a kid I loved jelly belly jellybeans (island punch being my favourite) and thought that the idea of something that smells similar was a good one.
----The Air freshener---
The air freshener consists of a cardboard cutout in the shape of a jelly bean (appropriate for the jelly belly brand) and has a loop of elastic string for securing it in place. The cardboard cutout is similar in size to other air fresheners and the string is easy to use. I have put it out of the way of the windscreen down the dashboard of my car.
I got the very cherry scent but have seen it available in tutti-frutti, blueberry, tangerine, pear and bubblegum. There may be others available but i didn't see them in the shop.
The smell is quite nice, the cherry smell is easy to identify and quite sweet. It is quite a stronng smell which I am sure is good for most people and will mask unpleasant smells well, or just make the car smell good.
My experience is that the smell is not strong enough to mask the damp smell in my car, but this is quite a strong smell and I am sure that a bit of airing and maybe 2 or 3 jelly belly air fresheners would do the job. I fully intend to buy some more and check this out at some point in the future as offering people a lift is becoming an embarrasment.
The Jelly belly air freshener sells for £2.38 on amazon, which I think is quite reasonable. I think I paid about £2 in asda but this may have been on offer. It is a good smell and I think the air freshener is worth the full price as the scent does last a considerable amount of time.
It's good value and a pleasant smell, but no competition for my wet scuba gear. I'll knock one star off because I need to get something industrial strengh for my needs!
Summary: Good value and a nice scent
