A Find: A Fresh Smelling Home from a Bargain Candle
October 4, 2007
Why: I was always a fan of Febreze spray, so when I heard that Febreze introduced an odor-eliminating candle I was already on the bandwagon. Let me just explain a bit about my living situation. I share an apartment with a Brazilian/Polish couple. For some reason they love to cook beans and other legumes that inevitably stink up the entire house — including my room.
For minutes after I lit my new candle I wondered why I couldn't smell anything. After all, this is a scented candle. After I had forgotten that I lit the candle completely, I suddenly started to smell the fresh aroma. Out go the beans, in comes a scent reminiscent of Christmas time. The flavor is meant to be "Apple Spice & Delight," but not only do I get the sweetness of apple, but also the freshness of pine and the warmth you get on a cold winter's afternoon by the fire.
It may have taken a while for the odor-eating core to diminish the stink of favas, but finally, my place smelled fresh, clean and just like a home should — not like my roommate's cooking.
