Jelly Belly Tangerine Air Freshener
Advantages: Great fragrance and longevity.
I began my love affair with these Jelly Belly air fresheners over a year ago after my daughter introduced me to them. Knowing how much I love fruity scents she mentioned them to me and then I went in her car where she had one hanging and that was it. I had to have one!
I have used a variety of air fresheners not just in my home, but also in my car over the years and have found that most of them for cars in particular, have been pine fragrances, which is something that has often puzzled me as I don't know why your car has to smell of pine or toilet cleaner, as some of the air fresheners have often reminded me of! The best in-car air fresheners I have personally found have been the plug-in types, but even those I have found do not last very long and can often be quite expensive.
My daughter was very impressed by the longevity of these Jelly Belly air fresheners and with that information and the lovely fruity fragrance, I bought one and have been buying them ever since. I tried the Bubble Gum, Tutti Frutti and Cherry Jelly Belly air fresheners from this range first and suitably impressed with all three I decided my next purchase was to be Tangerine.
I usually purchase mine from Asda where they are priced usually at £3, but they can often be on offer for £2, so I tend to wait until they are the cheaper price and then buy a couple.
These Jelly Bean shaped air fresheners are quite quirky to look at with their unique jelly bean shape and also they smell a lot better than those cheap toilet-cleaner smelling cardboard trees too in my opinion. Of course you may expect quality from this brand, as Jelly Belly have grew over the last 50 years to become a recognised snack all over the world and also the number one jelly bean. Taking the ingredients used in their jelly beans, they have sought to transfer the intensity of the taste into scents for their air fresheners and candles.
As soon as I hung my Tangerine jelly bean air freshener in my car, it filled it with its fruity scent but it isn't overpowering. Indeed I am aware of the subtle fragrance all the time whilst in the car, but what I like most is getting into my car and smelling the sharp fruity fragrance which greets me as I open the door. I have given lifts to family and friends and many have commented on how lovely the fragrance is when they get into my car.
Like my daughter, I have also been very impressed by the longevity of these car air fresheners and these last for a number of weeks I have found. My Tangerine scented Jelly Belly air freshener has a lovely tangy orange fragrance which has lasted over 5 weeks now and counting. The longevity of this one is just as good as the others I have tried in this range and as yet I haven't found anything else on the market which comes close to matching these, so they are good value for money in my opinion.
You can also get an idea of the scent of these car air fresheners before buying one, as they have a 'scratch & sniff' sticker on the packaging.
There is only one from this range which I don't think I will purchase and that is the Blueberry Jelly Belly, as I thought it a little sickly smelling when I was 'scratching and sniffing' them in Asda, but I love all the others and these are definitely the best air fresheners I have ever used in my car. Using these has prompted me to look for the other air fresheners and candles for the home that Jelly Belly also produce.
I make my Jelly Belly air freshener purchases from Asda, but they are widely available at most supermarkets and garage forecourt shops, but they are also available from Amazon online at varying prices.
Summary: Can't be beaten on long-lasting fragrance.
