Advantages: 3 fragrance bottles are better than a bog standard one you usually get, diffuser is re-usable.
Disadvantages: If you leave it on non-stop, it won't be lasting very long
This review is for the '3volution Vanilla Treat'
3Volution is a 3 scent combination air freshener which is fitted into an electrical diffuser which in turn is plugged into your everyday household plug socket. The electrical charge warms the unit and slowly releases the three individual scents into your room.
My Girlfriend likes to experiment with air fresheners, usually favoring blossom type smells, spring glades, lavender and such like, but vanilla is one she keeps coming back to. I must admit, I am not a great fan of strong flowery fresheners - they tend to remind me of old women, folded napkins and womens' sensible underpants.
Anyway, I tend to like simple fragrances, and am a firm fan of vanilla. This was on offer in Wilkinsons - £3.98 - and it usually retails around £7-10. The box says it can last up to 90 days if used sparingly ( up to 12 hours a day), and I am all for that although my girlfriend likes to sniff lovely smells all the time. Being a boorish male, all I do is flatulate, scratch myself and belch (allegedly), so what could I possibly know, eh?
You operate the diffuser by simply turning the wall socket on or off, and there is a slider switch on the left hand side that has 3 settings between minimum and maximum. I have always used it on low, and yet it still operates effectively and fills my large room nicely. I have yet to put it on maximum or leave on 24 hours a day, but I suspect this would be overkill in all but the largest room.
Obviously this depends on what kind of environment you plan to use it in and what type of residents there are - if you had stinky moggies or dogs, obviously there would be a greater need for a stronger counter effect to their odours, and similarly if you were to use it in a bathroom it would not last as long as in my living room.
Well, I have to admit that this fragrance is smooth, pleasant and most certainly has a presence. I wouldn't call it 'fresh', as it in no way reminds me of clean washing or pristine meadows, but instead it conjures up a nice warm, comfortable, welcoming room/dwelling association for me.
You can buy refils for around £3-7 depending on where you shop, and once you have the diffuser (included with this as I stated before), you have the option to try various different fragrances - which I plan to do.
I would recommend this product, especially at the knock down half price I paid for it. I would probably pay top whack for it too.
Summary: Well worth the investment, especially if you are experimenting with new air fresheners
