“ Brand: Tesco / Product Type: Air Freshener „
Having an elderly cat who is 17 years old and now often taking care of my own grown up children's dogs sometimes I like to use air fresheners to help my home smell nice and clean and remove pet smells as much as possible. I decided to buy this air freshener because it was cheap to buy and I thought if I didn't like it, I wouldn't have wasted a lot of money.
It comes in a tall can and has a removable top. The top can easily be pulled from the can. It has a press down nozzle which I also find very easy to press to release the product. The can isn't anything special to look at in appearance and no fancy picture on the front etc.
I was pleasantly surprised how fine a mist this freshener actually turned out to be, it sprays an even mist into the air and not a direct spray like I imagined it would be when I bought it. It has a slight perfume fragrance to it but it isn't very strong but I could smell it once I began to spray it into the air. After a minute or 2 the smell disappears and I can't detect it in the room thereafter. Initially it is apparent but then quickly disappears which was a let down for me but I suppose I wasn't expecting it to last very long but I did expect it to at least last more than a couple of minutes that's for sure but it didn't. Which was a real shame in my opinion.
One day when I cooked a curry dish and could smell it around my home, I used this spray to see if it would remove the smell but it didn't at all, it doesn't work really well for removing those nasty cooking smells around the home at all, which was also a real shame too. I don't think it removes any smells not even in the bathroom etc.
For a 300ml can it costs just 36p, I don't think it is very good value for money at all in my opinion and quite a waste of money. The quality isn't very good at all. I know it is very cheap to buy but I do wish it had a little more perfume fragrance and that it had an improvement in the way it lasts longer and removes nasty smells.
I found it didn't work at all for removing pet odours and that was the main reason I bought it in the first place. I did persevere with it but soon got fed up of it so I decided to just give my home a really good spray in each room for a couple of days just to use up the rest of the air freshener.
I don't recommend this one to anyone looking to buying a freshener which gives the rooms around your home a nice smell to them. I do think you would be very disappointed if you have pets and want to remove pet odours. Even if you are wanting to drop a brand, this one would still be a waste of money from my experience of using this spray. It is affordable for any budget and would only be suitable to anyone who couldn't afford any branded or cheaper air fresheners.
I won't buy it again in the future because it did nothing to giving my home a nice smell. I don't like it at all but am pleased I gave it a go because what may be suitable for one person may not be for another one and I wanted to try it for myself to see how it actually worked. Totally rubbish and a waste of my money in my opinion. I'd rather pay a little more and have one which has a lasting smell and one which has staying power. I found this one did neither. The only good thing I can say about it is the fine mist it sprays into the air, that's all I can give positive points about this one.
The can is recyclable.
I give this one 1 star, I cannot give it any more than the 1 star because I don't think it deserves more stars.

Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.
Product: Tesco Value Air Freshener
I'm a little bit of a bargain hunter and always take the opportunity to find a product that little bit cheaper, after all as the Tesco saying goes; every little helps.
I bought the Tesco Value Air Freshener from my local Tesco store for just 30p and for this you get 330ml of product. This was a big saving for me as I normally pay £1.70 for my favourite Air Freshener and this worked out at a whopping £1.40 saving.
The packaging to the Air Freshener is very basic with the standard and noticeable white and blue Tesco value range packaging, the product logo and title printed at the front whilst all other relevant information is printed at the back. In all honesty it had cheap written all over it.
The design of the Air Freshener is just like any other regular Air Freshener with a nozzle at the top with a easy spray button when once pressed releases the freshener and allows you to spray this evenly around the room.
To use you simply shake the can well, hold upright and spray the product lightly into the air. Once sprayed I couldn't smell any Air Freshener at all, I followed the instructions on the back of the can just to double check that I was following the instructions properly and the same problem occurred, I could visibly see the spray came out of the can but I still couldn't smell any fragrance whatsoever.
I was extremely disappointed with the Air Freshener, yes it was only 30p but you still expect some kind of initial smell at least from a product claiming to be an Air Freshener.
I've learnt quickly that to have a good quality product you really do need to sometimes spend that little bit more.
Dooyoo Stars Rating: 1/5
At the end of our final year at University, my housemates and I needed to clean our house before we moved out. As cash strapped students often are, we were on a bit of a tight budget. We therefore went to Tesco and stocked up on the cheapest cleaning supplies available. Included in our shop was this Tesco Value Air Freshener, which we snapped up for the price of 39p for a 300ml can.
This air freshener is part of the Tesco Value range. Like most of the range, the packaging is pretty basic. There are no pretty pictures on the front of this air freshener, it is simply the blue, white and red packaging with the product name on the front. The lid pops off and underneath is a nozzle which you press to spray the air freshener.
After shaking the can and pressing down on the nozzle, I was surprised to find that this air freshener shot out of the can in a rapid stream. It was certainly not a delicate mist like other air fresheners I have used in the past. I initially thought that this was a problem with the can we had bought and that it was maybe damaged in some way, but a quick nosey at other reviews tells me this is a common problem with this product.
Almost instantly after spraying this air freshener I noticed the smell. The smell was very strong and potent and absolutely revolting. You can tell that the product is meant to have a floral kind of smell, but it is not nice in any way and is unlike any other air freshener or even cleaning product that I have used before. It is a very harsh and chemical like smell.
After spraying this air freshener in one room, we had to open the windows to try to get rid of the smell. I stopped using the product after smelling it and put it straight into the bin. I have previously used other items in the Tesco Value range and have often been quite pleased with them. This was not the case however with this air freshener. I was really disappointed with this product and honestly can't believe how Tesco can continue to sell it or how anyone can think it is pleasant in any way. Our house genuinely smelt better before we used this air freshener!
If I could give this product a lower rating than 1 star, I definitely would. I would NOT recommend this product, and wouldn't even use it if it was free! Thanks for reading/rating and I hope you found my review useful.
Tesco Value are hit and miss but I won't know what's a hit if I don't work my way through their range.
I needed air freshener so thought I'd just get Tesco Value solely because it was 36p for a good sized 300ml spray can.
The can decorated in the usual plain Tesco white is easy to spot on the shelf. The white lid comes off to reveal the nozzle, separate rather than incorporated into the lid, it's easy enough to depress if a bit stiff.
I shake the can- if not thoroughly shaken it spits blobs- hold upright and spray around the room being careful not to spray directly onto fabric or furniture as directed. The spray is a wet heavy spray that doesn't produce a fine mist like other more expensive air fresheners and tends to settle on things- but soon dries. It has a very artificial smell that reminds me of fly spray.
I like to give a quick burst of air freshener when a room smells stale or if I've been cooking something that leaves a horrible smell- smoked haddock being a particular nasty smell namely the day after. I don't think Tesco value spray masks very well. It seems to mingle with smells rather than cover them up, it doesn't linger for long either. This being an air freshener and not a neutraliser I don't expect it to get rid of smells but it doesn't hide them either, just adds to them.
I wouldn't bother.
1 Stars from me as it doesn't really do anything- a weak room spray.
Possibly the very worst so-called air freshener I have ever used, has to be the one by Tesco, which they sell as part of their 'no frills' range. It's basic, very cheap and I would personally never buy this again. I paid just under 40p for a very large 300ml sized can. The container is very plain and there are no pretty flowers or scenic pictures on the front of the can - it simply says it's an air freshener. I bought this primarily because of the price and also because I've used a lot of Tesco's own brand products before and I have rarely been disappointed with any of them.
I shook the can, as directed, the first time I used this and sprayed it around the dining room area, which is where the animals frequent. It came out in a blinding blast and certainly not a fine mist, as I was expecting. It's also a noisy aerosol and the cat heard what must have sounded to him like a loud hissing noise from the next room, and shot under my legs as he tried to get away.
The smell is unbelievable, it really is. It smells like a chemical, thick gassy pong. There is nothing nice or fresh or natural, it smells horrid beyond belief. Unfortunately, the smell also seems to linger about for ages after it's been sprayed. I would have though that as it was so cheap, the smell might have dissipated quite quickly - unfortunately, this is not the case, and it lingers about on the air so I was forced to open the two back windows to try to let in some air.
It was so bad that it seemed to catch at the back of my throat and made me gag, the strength really took me by surprise and I felt like I could taste it in my mouth for ages afterwards.
This is only a bargain if you really love the smell of fetid, noxious and rancid gassy stench. I'm sorry, but I have absolutely nothing positive at all I could say about this putrid pong. Give it a very wide berth, it's really just not worth it.
The everyday tesco air freshner is only priced at 36p.
I normally buy the branded air fresheners and lots of febreze as it's great, but when I saw this at tesco and it was so cheap I thought i'd try it thinking although the scent won't be as long lasting as febreze it will still freshen the room up a bit.
I really didn't like this one.. I binned it without using all of it!
On spraying the air freshner I found it to smell really chemically and be more of a scent that is most suited to bathroom cleaning products rather than freshening up rooms.
It's quite hard to describe the scent but it definitely isn't a sweet smelling one that I thought may come out of it!
The can has a pop off lid and then you press the nozzle at arms distance for the spray to come out. The air fresheners nozzle is easy to press. However on spraying the can, I thought I would get a fine mist coming out of the can but instead it seems to just come out in one big line and quite a lot of it going in one direction. I think I only used this 4-5 times before binning it as for me it just didn't smell nice at all and it didn't even smell like an air freshener! (maybe i'm too used to buying febreze and lavender/rosy sprays)
When I bought the can it was in plain white with the tesco value branding but since then they have changed it to everyday value so i'm sure the packaging would have changed.. hopefully they would have improved the product as well as the design of the packaging, but I really wouldn't recommend this one and would stick to buying other air fresheners that have more of a nice scent to it!
I give the product 1 out of 5 stars as I didn't like it so much I binned it.
I knew for the price it probably wouldn't last as long as the branded products but for the scent to be so chemically really didn't suit the product at all.
Thanks for reading :)

I always try and get a bargain wherever possible but sometimes it really doesn't pay to scrimp and buying Tesco Value air freshener was one of those times as it was absolutely disgusting. The best thing about it was the price but after using it I would go so far as to say it was overpriced and even if I was given this for free I wouldn't ever use it again.
The air freshener costs 39p for a large 300ml can of spray so I was swayed in to trying it out as I thought that at least if I didn't like it then it wasn't going to be too much money down the drain. However I didn't realise that I would dislike it so much and end up throwing out nearly a full can of it.
It comes in the usual white and blue value packaging which isn't particularly pretty to look at but it's what's on the inside that counts and I hate paying more for something just because it looks pretty.
The can is metal with a plastic lid and the air freshener itself is an aerosol one.
To use you just press down and spray it around a room. The first thing that I noticed about this compared to other air fresheners was that this didn't come out of the can in a fine mist and coat the air but instead it came out in a powerful surge and instead of misting all over the room it just sort of sprayed in a straight line.
The second thing I noticed of course was the smell which to be frank was absolutely vile. I think it is supposed to be a floral smell but it is so chemical smelling and cloying that it was actually hard to tell. It also really permeated a room after spraying so much that I was choking after only spraying it for a couple of seconds. It took absolutely ages for the horrible smell to leave and I ended up having to open all the windows even though it was the middle of winter because I hated it so much.
I normally find that the value products from Tesco are usually quite good. Often other than the packaging there isn't a huge difference between them and the more expensive ones but this definitely wasn't the case with this air freshener and I could tell straight away that it was inferior to the other brands that I have used before.
Even for the money this isn't worth it and I would rather live with so called bad smells than ever have to use this again.
I'm all for trying new things when it comes to house products and usually I buy a quite expensive air freshener but I thought it was about time I tried something new. When shopping in Tesco, I decided to buy their own value brand of air freshener. Bad, bad idea!!
This air freshener comes in the normal Tesco Value tin which is white with blue and red writing. The look of the tin is extremely boring and cheap looking. The label on the tin is not even printed to it but instead, it is just a cheap looking sticker placed on to the tin. It doesn't look pretty, especially in comparison to my usual choice for this kind of thing, which is pink with flowers and leaves on it. If you couldn't tell by now, I hated the packaging for this product.
Once you take the white cap off the can, you can see that this air freshener has a basic aerosol spray mechanism. The first use can mean having to push down on the little button quite hard in order to make it click so that you can use it. After doing this, the spray action does work really well and the spray comes out really easily. Maybe a little too easily.
I wasn't quite sure what to expect when it came to the smell of this product. Unlike others, it doesn't have a great description on the front of what amazing ingredients have been used or anything saying what it is supposed to smell like. I really was walking in blind with this one. So, on a day of cleaning my flat, I thought it was time to try out this new, bargain of a product. I only managed to use it in one room because the smell was so bad. I tend to smoke at the front door, with it open, so sometimes the smell of smoke can come in to the living room and air freshener gets rid of this. This Tesco Value air freshener didn't do my room any favours at all. After only two quick sprays, my living room smelt like chemicals instead of anything nice. It did get rid of the smoke smell though I guess.
I paid only 30p for this can of air freshener but I would never buy it again. How people can think this makes a house smell nice I'll never know. Even my flatmates said they would prefer the smoke smell to this.
Tesco Value Air Freshener is the cheapest on the market I found so far. For a 300ml aeorosol can I paid only 30p so I should have realised really that it wasn't going to be that good a product.
I bought it because it was cheap, simple as that and also because somethimes the value range is as good as the named brand in my personl opinion.
This did nothing at all for us as far as freshening was concerned and was a complete let down and disappointment. There was hardly any detectable smell and as soon as you left the room and went back in afterwards you really hard to sniff hard in order to be able to detect just a slight whiff of aroma, the smell itself wasn''t even that pleasant either.
The nozzle was difficult to depress and the freshener came out in a large spurt rather than a fine mist. Big blobs of it fell onto the carpet and I am pretty sure that is not meant to happen. The tin is plain and very basic but I wouldn't have minded that if the product inside was up to the job, but it wasn't at all.
I am unsure if this comes in many different fragrances but I won't be going back to have a look. I think it is far more cost effective to pay more for a better one because this one went straight into the bin.
I would not recommend this product at all I'm afraid.
review also poste don Ciao as sorehead
I share a flat with my best mate we both smoke and like to keep a nice home which can be rather difficult being smokers. I spotted this in my local Tesco for 29p .I usually buy other dearer brands but thought I'd give this a go!
Comes in a white can says 'Tesco Value Air Freshener' on the front of the can.
This Air Freshener has a floral scent to it simular to sweet peas! The can contains 300ml.
Myself using it:****
I like to keep a clean and tidy home, however this can be rather hard at times when the household smokes.
As I said before I share a flat with my best mate we're both in our thirties and have the disgusting habit of smoking.
We have just had our flat decorated by my best mates boyfriend who is a pro. Now it looks amazing we want to keep it that way. This air freshener is alright for the money but I it doesn't seem to last for long probably half an hour if you are lucky. It does the job if your on a tight budget like I am.
I will be buying it again it does the job!
To be purchased from Tesco for an amazing 29p.
Let's face it, smell is all very subjective. Take aftershaves. One man's dream scent is another man's idea of a boggy swamp aroma. I like to think that my acute sense of smell serves me well. I can usually detect a bad odour a mile off and I am very sensitive when it comes to aerosols. Some very strong aerosols set my nose off and cause sneezing fits. You would have to be on a very tight budget to consider spending a mere thirty pence on an air freshener. A value air freshener at that. Is fresh air something that you can compromise on. It's like having a stinky bin and thinking 'this reeks, but let's just eradicate half of the smell and have a slight odour lingering.' You would ideally want to eliminate the entire smell.
The Tesco air freshener has certainly undercut its rivals in the price wars by nearly half price. But what you are getting here is something very cheap and not very cheerful. When masking an odour, you want to mask it well, at least with a lovely floral or herbal scent. The scent that this delivers is pretty much non existent. It is rather like squirting a bottle of air at a smell. Sure the pump action spray is easy enough to use and you can have some fun zapping smells. But there is no flowery smell to provoke the nose. Just a smell...slightly chemical, not that inviting. Oh the bottle is really is really dull to look at too, so that gets nul points.
It fails to eradicate odours. Cat litter trays still stunk in our house, all it does is provide another smell to go with the smell you already have. Thus not solving the problem, but adding to it. I would spend a few more pence and go for a Neutradol spray and get the job done properly, or better still...save even more money and open a window. Problem solved!
Tesco value Air freshener!!! Yet another really "Exciting" product to review here then....
Well it may not be a very exciting product to review but, nevertheless, it is of a product type that a large number of us do use on a regular basis, so is worthy of comment.
This Tesco Air freshener, from its bargain basement "Value" range, is supplied in a conventional Aerosol format, with which we are all familiar. The can is yours on handing over the princely sum of 28 pence to Messrs Tesco ltd... It is certainly cheap enough, and is available at all Tesco stores.
So what do you get for your 28 pennies then?
You get a typical Value range, blue and white "Logoed"; can containing 300ml - what ever that means, of Air freshener. The can actually measures 10" high and 2" in diameter - that means more to me than 300ml does.
Operation is straightforward as you would expect, shake well, point and spray - no surprises there. The spray itself is quite tight in dispersion and quite directional. It is a little "Wet" compared to some other products but that is not really a problem as by the time it has settled it has flashed off and appears to cause no problems.
The smell / fragrance is, shall we say different! In my opinion it is not a particularly nice or comforting fragrance, but is acceptable. It is certainly better than the majority of smells that you are trying to mask - I think........ Mind you a Bacon Buttie smells far superior to this stuff, so I perhaps better back track a little on that point.
Please do not expect this product to compare favourably with some of the "Top of the range" products available out there as it would be an unfair comparison. If it cost £2 a can then maybe it should be better, but remember it is only 28p - it ain't gonna be that brilliant - but it isn't that bad either. Horses for courses come to mind.
There are copious amounts of Instructions / directions /warnings printed on the can. Most of which are common sense and statutory mumbo jumbo, allied to Governmental / EU drivel. Read and be bored.
The only bits which matter, in my opinion, are as follows:-
Do not spray directly onto Furniture and Fabrics.
The product is EXTREMELY INFLAMMABLE (Contains Butane and Propane).
Protect the pressurised can from direct Sunlight and temperatures over 50 deg C, do not expose to naked flames etc.
Do not spray the product near eyes and face.
Keep out of reach of Children and Animals.
The rest is *********** (I'm being polite again!).
So in conclusion, it's cheap and cheerful, does what it says it does - just about. But think, you can buy seven or eight of these cans as opposed to one can of some other products. Are they really worth THAT much extra? Perhaps not.
Certainly if you are on a tight budget then I reckon this product is well worth your 28 pennies. If money is not tight or you really must have a "Super" smelling fragrance then this Value Air freshener is maybe not for you.
"You pays your money and you takes your choice" has never been more appropriate than when it is applied to this product.
Tesco Value Air Freshener
There is no picture of this product on Dooyoo, but as you would expect from the Tesco Value range, it is in a white can with a white plastic lid. As with all items in the Value range, it has basid red and blue writing on it.
Yes, there is no getting away from the fact that the packaging does look extremely cheap and that may be offputting. However, I have been trying more and more things from these supermarket no frills ranges lately and most of the time, been pleasantly surprised by the quality of the goods within.
Do we want to spend extra money on posh packaging which just gets thrown in the bin anyway? Certainly not - I have better things to spend money on thank you very much!
This product comes in a 300ml aerosol can and has not been tested on animals. It cost me just £0.30 which is a definite bargain compared to the other brands on the shelf.
I have pets so like to ensure that my home is kept as clean and fresh as possible. Aside from making sure it is always spotless, I like to use air freshener to keep things smelling fresh at all times.
This product was easy to use but didn't really smell of anything much. There was a slightly sweet smell, but to be honest, it did smell a little cheap and while it was functional, didn't leave the room smelling nice for very long as I had hoped.
I have read an earlier review which says that the writer found the smell of this quite industrial, like the products used in public toilets and that is actually a pretty accurate description!
This might do if you had nothing else available, but it doesn't have the kind of fresh and pleasant smell that you are likely to want in your rooms, so it is not something that I will be buying again.
Yes this is cheap, but I am not going to finish the can and will be buying something nicer as soon as possible, so it didn't really save me any money - must try harder Tesco!
I have in all of my downstairs rooms the Airwick freshmatics which are great but when doing my housework I find nothing more stasifying than walking around with an air freshner spraying and admiring my hard work. Sad aren't I?
However as I get all my scent from the frestmatics, all I decided I required was a cheapy spray for my gloating moments.
Tescos do a value air freshner and ok it doesn't look like it would win any design awards and you certainly wouldn't leave the can on display. As the white tin can with a big tesco value logo round the top half of it is, well offensive looking.
But it's only 30p!!!!
And I expect you think it smells like its only 30p... well actually it doesn't..
It smells floral scented, Not a strong scent that you could say oh it's lavandor or rose but just a mixture of flowers.
The scent isn't offensive and if you sprayed and someone came into the room thet would know you have sprayed air freshner and not fly spray.
Its basic yes but for what I do with it, It is great.
I keep it hidden in the kitchen cupboard and use a few times a week.
The scent doesn't linger so it wouldn't be great as the only air freshner in the house but as a extra it works.
I tend to live in my bedroom. Living with the parents it's the only space that is my own and I love it, it's my little corner of the world! However no matter how clean I and my bedroom are from time to time it doesn't smell as fresh as it possibly could. Sure I open the windows and stuff but I am guilty of occasionally eating in my room whilst watching tv and I do smoke (even though it's out of the window) lol. So I resort to air fresheners to stay smelling sweet.
I usually buy decent one's. By that I mean the brands we've all heard of.... however of late I've been a bit skint so in general stuff I have been buying is economy and I'm working hard at cutting my cost of living down lol! I saw this the other day in my local Tesco store costing a mere 28p a can and put back the one I was going to buy for £2.50ish and felt rather pleased with myself with this little find!
Long white cylinder aeresol can with a white matching plastic lid that fits over a white plastic push button sprayer. On the front in red and white writing I'm told it is Tesco value Air Freshener. On the back of the can other information given includes directions for use, safety and warnings being listed as well as general product information, a price promise given from Tesco (if your not happy with the product for any reason you can have your money back), I'm told the product isn't tested on animals, contact details for Tesco are given and the size of the product is stated (300ml). Cheap looking offering this is but it's informative enough and easy to use to be fair to it.
Well according to directions for use I use it that way of course! Give the can a quick shake, hold it upright and spray it lightly into the room to be fragranced and I avoid spraying furniture and fabrics whilst I'm at it (as advised on the can). So it sprays out of the can with ease. It does spray out as a white mist you can see and it is fairly wet so don't spray to much of it! The smell of this is simply weird really and hard to describe. It has a slightly sweet smell and I guess of flowers but nothing I can pin point really. It's like industrial stuff they use in public loos and the such rather than any I've personally ever used in my home before. It isn't bad but you couldn't describe this as nice either!
However it does knock out bad odours. Ok probably not garlic or fish and them such smells but if you have a room that just needs a burst of freshness to make the room feel cleaner than this is suitable for that. I find this freshens up the room instantly by fragrancing as soon as I spray it and that smell lasts a good half an hour. It doesn't 'eat' odour' but it does a good job of masking it for a while at least.
However for me this is a no no and I had to throw mine out. The spray is really drying and it dried up my throat in a powdery way terribly. I did try it a few times and just sprayed the corner of my room gently but for some reason it made me ever so thirsty and croaky and took my breath away a little. I couldn't be doing with it at all sadly!
If it don't dry you up like it did me you could find a use for this in your life. It isn't the most wonderful of smelling sprays but does deal with light odours and certainly does freshen to an extent!
Only availble in Tesco stores.
