I signed up for a free sample of Ambi Pur room refreshener spray courtesy of Indiblogger’s Ambi Pur contest. It took a few
days weeks to arrive, but when it did, I thought I’d ‘review’ it.
I was hoping for a fragrance completely new to me, and I was sent the ‘Blossom & Breeze’ variant. Ambi Pur claims their Air Effects range of room sprays “eliminates odours and freshens the air” — which is what you would expect it to do.
Although it was sent to my Bangalore home, I tested the spray at my home in Kerala. Primarily because, being fish eaters, the daily stench of fish cut by my mom emanates from the kitchen and often reaches the living room. So it’s far more in need here than in Bangalore where our bachelor pad is in greater need of body spray than room spray 🙂
A few sprays of Ambi Pur Air Effects in the kitchen and living room, and immediately you could sense the wonderful fragrant air sweeping away the pungent smell of fish. With a fragrance named ‘Blossom & Breeze,’ the smell was very floral — and oozes freshness in every whiff. I looked on the can if they mentioned the ingredients, but other than safety instructions and the fact Proctor & Gamble imports these from Thailand, there was no mention of ingredients. I even searched online but found little information on the elements that went into concocting this fragrance. Hmm, company secret perhaps?
But you know what I liked most about Ambi Pur Air Effects spray? The spray can itself. One, it’s very well designed. Secondly, I loved the trigger, which has a unique nitrogen-based propellant system, and it works in such a way that you easily gets a single press. What I’m getting at is that there are many consumer durables (powdered drinks to detergents and even other sprays) where the manufacturer “recommends” being very liberal in its usage. Not because you need to in order to serve the product’s purpose, but doing so will ensure you finish the product quicker — so that you will have to go out and buy another! 🙂
With Ambi Pur Air Effects’ trigger, I doubt that will be the case. At Rs.220 for a 275g spray can, I’d say it’s worth the price. You may think it will run out quick, but given how many times I’ve used it so far since I received my can last week, I can feel the weight of the can and tell you this spray is going to last me a few months.
