Febreze Home Collection review and WalMart gift card giveaway

I am one of those people that loves to use different products to help my house smell nice. I have often burned candles, but with 4 little ones, it can be difficult to find a safe place to burn candles. Candles not only allow me to enjoy a scent, but they also help create ambiance in a room with the flickering light. I was very excited to be introduced to the new Flameless Luminary from Febreze. It is a simple black base that you place a scented shade on top of. When the shade is in place, the light is activated and looks like a candle flickering through the shade. The light does not get hot, but is warm enough that it activates the scent in the shade. When you want a new look or a new scent, you can easily just switch the shade that is on it. Each shade will last about 1 week. The other feature I like about this is that the light will flicker for about 4 hours and then automatically turn itself off. To reactivate it, just take the shade off and replace it. You can also use the switch on the base to turn the light on and off. This comes in Herbal, Green Tea Citrus, Natural, and Fruity & Refreshing scents.

I also tried out the No Spill Wood Diffuser from Febreze. I have used reed diffuser in the past and like the way they diffuse scents, but again with 4 little ones, they often got knocked over and spilled, then my carpet was diffusing the scent ;) This product follows the reed diffuser concept, by having a wood stem that goes into the oil inside the clear glass bottle. The oil is then carried up to the wooden block top on the bottle and diffuses into the air from the block. If the container is tipped on its side, the oil does not spill. As life would have it, my kids never knocked this one over so I cannot tell you how well that aspect works, but it is a solid block so I imagine it works well. This also comes in the same Herbal, Green Tea Citrus, Natural, and Fruity & Refreshing scents as above.

To buy or not to buy?
I liked both of these products, but particularly the Flameless Luminary. I found the scent to be light and not overpowering. I also loved the automatic shut off feature so that I could safely fall asleep to the glow of candlelight and not waste battery power all night long either. As for the No Spill Wood Diffuser, as much as I liked it, I would probably not buy it in the future. The scent was not strong enough for me, at least not in the room I used it in (the bathroom). I love the concept though and would recommend it to those who want a very light scent.
