The Febreze #Noseblind Test and a $60 AmEx Gift Card Giveaway!

This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

In my house these days, it is all about Baby Taylor. She is three weeks old today and while she is an awesome baby, my house is definitely smelling like “baby” these days. If you have kids, you know what I mean- A + D ointment, wipes, and smelly diaper odors that penetrate the whole house. Now here is the problem: While I am used to it and probably would not be able to identify the odors, when my guests come over they definitely could smell the unpleasant odors that have gone around my house. If you are not familiar with this sensation where the homeowner is completely oblivious to smells but your guests are very keen to the offensive smells, this phenomena is called Noseblindness.DSC_0614

Noseblindness is a nasal condition where you become accustomed to the odors around you over time, which are created by the odor cycle. For us, we have become accustomed to all the dirty diapers and baby smells, that we can’t really smell it anymore. You know what I mean?! However, when our friends come over, this is by far the first thing they smell and it could be terrible to their noses.

Thank goodness, I was asked by Febreze to invite friends over and do the #NoseBlind test. The way this worked was I invited girlfriends over to watch the Bachelorette a week back and brewed up some yummy popcorn. Once they arrived, we all took an initial survey asking what smells they perceived when they entered. I just cooked so I was hoping they smelled the yummy foods. Unfortunately they smelled the poopy diapers while I smelled the yummy foods. FAIL..FAIL!!  Then we took another survey after we made some popcorn and asked what smells came up after making it. Thankfully, the smells of the popcorn were actually noted in this survey now!  However, the baby smells were still noted by some.DSC_0618


After about an hour, I used the Febreze products sent to us to clean the house and especially the area of the room where we were watching the Bachelorette. I went around spraying the fabrics with Febreze Meadows and Rain spray and the Febreze Air Effects Rainbow and Rain. I also set up the Febreze candle in the room and voila, in no time at all, the house smelled absolutely beautiful! Goodbye were the days of the smelly diapers and popcorn! Hello were the days of the beautiful Meadows and Rain Smells from the Febreze!


Febreze is definitely the simple solution for noseblindness. Febreze contains a molecule known as Cylodextrin that traps and eliminates the bad odors. Febreze’s patented technology eliminates odor and leaves behind a pleasant smell. It will give you the confidence to always be ready for guests on a moment’s notice, or with no notice at all! I am a HUGE Febreze fan and I recommend if you want your house smelling wonderful, give Febreze a try today! Be sure to learn more by visiting the Febreze Twitter and Facebook Page.

    I like how it helps minimize odors. When we bought my husband’s used car, it had a strange smell but Febreze helped get rid of it.

  2. James Robert says

    We use it because of cat litter issues and it helps and makes the home smell good. We have 2 cats and clean the litter box daily but odors linger

  3. shaunie says

    would have to say for sure that it really desolves the most terrible smells that regular fresheners cannot do

  4. Annette says

    I love that it not only covers the smells of my home, but also eliminates the odor! Smelly shoes, smelly dog …all taken care of by Febreze!

  5. Heather Hayes Panjon says

    I Love That Febreze Offers A Variety Of Scents For My Home That Helps Eliminate Odors And Keep My Home Smelling Fresh And Clean!

  6. ellen beck says

    I like that the scents arent so overpowering that it is worse than the original smell itself. I enjoy their linen scent and also the odor remover. I use Fabreeze all the time.

  7. Cynthia R says

    I like best about febreeze is their scents are nice and clean, they aren’t overwhelming or too flowery, they can eliminate odors without being too powerful.

  8. Erin Madigan says

    I love the variety of scents Febreze has! I also really enjoy how they help eliminate odors in my house!

  9. Valerie Taylor Mabrey says

  10. Mary Songer says

    What I like the best about Febreze is that it WORKS!! I can’t stress that enough. In my home it has to tackle cat litter and it does the job.

  11. Crystal F says

    I like that it can eliminate the smell of our new puppy. I love her smell but other people may not. Thank you!

  12. kath g says

    I like that it actually works. I’ve tried a lot of products that don’t do what they say they will do, but Febreze just works.

  13. sara haaf says

    I love that they smell so good, come in so many forms, and don’t just mask odors, but take them out!

  14. Ashley C says

    I love the high quality products that they have! They really do get rid of the odors and smell great without being over-powering


  15. Karen says

    I like how it just doesn’t “mask” the odors, but actually makes them go away. Such as if you cook fish, it doesn’t give the fish a frebreze”y” fishy smell, all you can smell is the febreze.

  16. Laura says

    I love the fresh smells and the minimal (if any) odors that remain after the product has worn off. LOVE febreeze!

  17. Sandra Gray says

    I love that febreze can take the smelly and musty odors away. And so I don’t have to worry about washing unwieldy things right away or worry about odors that don’t always go away after washed.

  18. Margaret J says

    I love being able to use Febreze on fabrics, including upholstery, drapes and carpets. As it evaporates, so do the odors. Thank you for the giveaway!

  19. Theresa Jenkins says

    What I like best about Febreze is that it works … I spray my soft surfaces about once a week for the clean, fresh smell

  20. Candace B says

    Honestly, I love how this product actually manages to eliminate odors within my house. By using Febreze, I do not have to worry about any hidden odors making themselves known or the stale smell that can come about a house when no sort of air freshener has been used.

  21. Jacob LaFountaine says

    I like that it generally not overpowering in smells. Other brands tend to smell like fruit bombs

  22. marian boll says

    Love Febreze!!! I use it when I clean the house and the smell is so fresh but not flowery!!! Oh, we have 3 dogs…need I say more….

  23. Geoff K says

    I love that most Febreze scents are more subtle and pleasant than a lot of air fresheners and scented oils.

  24. Anastasia says

    What I like best about Febreeze are all the great scents and different types of products. It gives you a lot of options to choose from :)

  25. Debra S says

    I like that they did come out with more scents. I might be strange, but when it first came out, I did not really like the scent. Now, they have better scents! That is a good thing

  26. Jacob says

    I like I can find it at any store – I hate when I find a product that actually works and finding it become so illusive!

  27. christine burd says

    I love the Febreze products. I use the the Hawaiian Aloha spray alot around the house. I enjoy the variety of scents as well

  28. jenn giannetto says

    i like that they have different types of products. i like the scenter warmer tarts for ambiance or setting a mood, the plug ins are good for the bathroom and the spray is great to use as needed

  29. Natalie Brown says

    Hi! I like that Febreze actually works and it smells lovely. I’m using the Fluffy Vanilla scent at this moment. Thank-you!!

  30. chris mills says

    what i like about fabreeze is it works not by just masking odors but eliminating them so it stays fresher smelling longer

  31. Katrina Page says

    I like that I can make my houses smell like things it’s not. Like an island breeze. Or cinnamon apple, no baking required.

  32. Susan Robbins says

    I love that Febreeze stops the odor from my dirty clothes hamper in the laundry room of the gym shorts, socks and dirty towels.

  33. Samantha D says

    I love that most scents are pleasant but not overpowering. But also help neutralize strong smells like dog and cat

  34. says

    I only use febreze for the ultimate odor I get once every two weeks. It’s the doggie bath smell. I let the door open, wait for the ‘smog’ to go away, spray inside the bathroom and it’s gone in a few minutes.

  35. Steve P says

    I appreciate the ease of application of febreze. Spray bottles are wonderful. Also, I am grateful for the variety of scents.

  36. Gina M (Wild Orchid) says

    I love that it doesnt just cover up odors, but it eliminates them. The scents are also fabulous!

  43. Jennifer R says

    I love that Febreze seems to actually get rid of the offending odor instead of just masking it with too strong fragrance like some other brands.

  44. stephanie baker says

    Since my husband has allergies, this makes me happy:
    Febreze Air Effects Allergen Reducer reduces up to 75% of inanimate allergens* that become airborne from soft surfaces, such as pet dander and dust mite matter.

  45. Danielle johnson says

    I love febreeze because they have great smells. I use this when we leave the house to use on couches and such to make the house smell good upon reentering.

  46. Sarah Hall says

    Fabreze always freshens my home. When I change the sheets on the bed, I spray Fabreze on the mattress and pad to make the bed smell nice.

  47. Brandi B says

    I like the scents and that the good smell actually stays unlike some of the others. My favorite scent is the one with Gain.

  48. Raina DelRio says

    I love how it eliminates odors, but doesn’t leave that heavy “scent” that lysol and other aerosols leave after spraying

  49. alyce poalillo says

    I like that they have so many scents and I can get clean fresh ones which I prefer, especially their odor eliminator ones for the cat box room

  50. Mary Cloud says

    I like that it has so many different scents I can switch when I get tired of one

  51. Bryan E. says

    Thanks for the giveaway… we use Febreze Fabric Refresher Allergen Reducer / Clean Splash to freshen up the sofa that the kids use the most…and control some of the household allergens.

  52. Nicole Flynn says

    I like that Febreeze comes in a variety of scents now. I remember way long time ago it was just the one. Now there are so many, including seasonal ones.

  53. thischickwins says

    I like the variety of scents available from Febreze. There was a sandalwood candle available around the holidays that was really nice.

  54. Lyndsey R. says

    I love that it eliminates odor. I work with a bunch of men who are constantly “using the bathroom” and this helps aid the smell those yucky men leave ;)

    Thanks for the chance!

  55. jamielee kimball says

    Although many might say this, I love how effective it is. I use quite a few Febreeze products, after spending years testing out cheaper alternatives that never lasted or even covered up the smell in the fist place. Another thing I like is that I have a different scent of Febreeze in every room of the house, and they never conflict with one another or subsequently create a bad smell. Great quality product, and although a little pricey for our budget – it is always worth it.

  56. says

    My Mom suffers from COPD and Febreze is the only air freshener that I can use around her and it not bother her. That is one of the reasons I use Febreze, but the other is Febreze has great products and the scents are fantastic.

  57. tim says

    My favorite thing about Febreze is that it really gets rid of the smell and not just mask it. Nothing is worse than a bad smell mixed with tropical fruit.

  58. heather c says

    I like that there are all kinds of versions for all kinds of reasons, including for the car, a candle, a spray, heavy duty, etc.

  59. Tiffany Losey says

    I love that it gets rid of all the stinky odors in the house and that theres so many different scents to choose from.

    Hey, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some
    overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, fantastic blog!
