There's no way of announcing this and maintaining my dignity, but I'm loving this Febreze Moroccan Bazaar Air Freshener.
I had to get something for the room with the cat litter boxes and I saw this in the supermarket: it's got ginger and nutmeg and a bunch of other spices.
Air fresheners always smell like cheap crap, but not this one. It literally smells like a spice market and when I catch a whiff walking by the room, I'm not displeased at all. Whoever created this scent should be very proud.
Oh, you don't need to tip-toe through the tulips around me when it comes to admiring functional fragrances. My love is for Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day All Purpose Cleaner in Geranium.
It's so fresh, rosy and happy-making. I actually look for excuses to clean just so that I can smell it again. Why can't Mrs. Meyer stop being coy and make it into a perfume already?
Speaking of good-enough-for-a-perfume household products, my dad used to insist that the fancy bottle of Divine L'Homme Sage that I gave him for his 90th birthday smelled exactly like Oust Air Freshener, "the one with the green cap". Turns out that one is evocatively called "Outdoor Scent."
Nevertheless, Dad gamely continued to wear L'Homme Sage. He said that the "usherettes" at church always complimented him on how good he smelled, adding, "and some of them are pretty cute!"
Hey, L'Homme Sage is still on my "to buy" list. I'm gonna re-investigate that one, even if I don't go to church. It seems perfect for baseball season. Though the usherettes at the Giants games are all old enough to be my mother.
Fumies -- smell anything good out of a can or off a sponge lately?
That's what my dad meant by “cute.”
