“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Product Type: Air Freshener „
I always like my bedroom smelling nice and have always looked at the Glade and various other plug in's. I find the glade plug in's quite expensive although my ex-boyfriend used to have one and they are very affective and you can certainly smell the fragrance that it gives off. I tend to do most of my shopping at Sainsbury's and looked at their range of plug in's. They have 2 different fragrances to choose one, from being vanilla and another one being Linen. I love the smell of vanilla so decided to purchase this one for about £4.00 which I didn't think was too bad.
The plug in freshener comes in a cardboard box and doesn't have all the excess plastic packaging that other plug in's come with. The perfume bottle simply pushes into the bottom of the plug in and you can control the strength of the fragrance by pushing the plastic silver clip up or down. I started the plug in, in between the 2, so it was neither weak nor strong. I simply plugged this into the socket and then I popped out to work for a few hours.
When I came home and walked into the room I could smell a lovely vanilla scent straight away. It made my whole room smell lovely. When I was in my room I did turn this down to the lowest strength of smell as it can smell quite strong and very sweet, sometimes too sweet.
I don't have this plugged in all the time, as I'm not always at home and I don't think it needs to be plugged in constantly. I've never felt the need to push the clip all the way down to the strongest strength of smell as I think it's quite strong enough already without doing that.
You can buy the refills for this which cost approximately £2.18, which I don't think is too bad at all, considering how well these freshen the room. Although there are only 2 fragrances to choose from they are a lot better value than the Air Wick plug in's and refills which I find quite expensive.
I am very pleased with the results of such a cheap plug in freshener from Sainsbury's. If you don't mind the smell of Vanilla or the Linen fragrance they also stock I would recommend this product as it brings a lovely scent to any room. This is not only a fantastic freshener because it smells good but because you can adjust the strength of the smell as well.
I am always buying plug in air fresheners, not because I want to hide any nasty smells in my home but because I love to come into the house, or even into a room and be able to smell a fragrance that is appealing to me and not just the "normal" smell of a nice clean house.
One of my favourite smells is vanilla and whilst in Sainsbury's I saw their plug-in air fresheners in a vanilla fragrance and I thought I would try them. I use a lot of Sainsbury's own label stuff around my home and have not really had any reason to doubt their quality as it has usually come through for me in other products. Unfortunately this has proved to be the exception to the rule.
On arriving home I undid the packaging which was just a cardboard box thankfully, and not these impossible to get into plastic contraptions that a lot of fresheners come in these days. I recycled the box and screwed the bottle of perfume into the plug part of the device. Popping it into the hallway plug I left it to get working.
There is no option on this plug in for a strong, weak or any other strength of use and therefore it really was a simple product to deal with. However I didn't get that immediate very strong smell that other plug ins have given me when I first plugged it in. I usually buy Glade or Airwick's plug ins and you usually get at least a day of being able to smell it everywhere you go within adjacent rooms, but this was a real let down.
If I knelt down and smelled the plug in extremely closely, then I got a whiff of the vanilla but otherwise it was non-existent in the air. My mum-in-law came down for the weekend and I asked her if she had smelled it when she came into the house, as sometimes you can get so used to a smell, you don't notice it. But no, she had not noticed anything when she arrived which to me means it is not doing its job properly or in this case at all!
I want to be able to smell the fragrance myself when I come in from work but I also want visitors to my house to be greeted by something pleasant when they come in.
I fear that was a real waste of £3.50 twice over, as I brought one for upstairs too. I am thoroughly disappointed and will write to Sainsbury's to complain. It didn't last one day let alone the 60 days they say it should last for as the smell was non-existent. The only good thing about these air freshener plug-ins is the fact that the packaging is recyclable and that really is all they have going for them.
Several scents to refresh the air in your home.
