Febreze has made some pretty lofty claims in their advertising about how well their products work. I'm thinking of the blindfold testing on the commercials, where they take someone in a very stinky place, blindfolded, and the person only smells the Febreze product instead of the gunk that is (unbeknownst to them) surrounding them.
I think those commercials are fun. I recently got a selection of Febreze products, and directions to invite friends over for a movie, popcorn, and a little Noseblind Test of the Febreze ourselves (though not as extreme as the commercials).
What do you need for such Noseblind testing?

There were three short surveys for us all to take independently, and then an assessment when all was said and done. We took those on the computer. What we found was that when everyone first came in the house, they smelled fresh air, or a light citrus smell. Not sure where the citrus smell came in, but it was mentioned more than once. Maybe from the baby oranges my son had earlier in the day, that's all I can think of, but I didn't detect that scent in the air. According to the Febreze site, that is Odor Habituation, or me getting used to a scent in my house and no longer detecting it, even though it is a strong enough smell for arriving guests to pick up on. With oranges, that's not so bad...with other things (like fish or burnt popcorn), it could get ugly.
The next thing we did was pop the popcorn. The smell identified by everyone was 'popcorn.'
After giving the room where the popcorn had been popped a quick shot of Febreze Air Effects, the smell was completely gone. And in the room where we were eating our popcorn, and watching our movie, the Febreze candle was running, and the odor disappeared as well. We were eating movie style butter popcorn, and anyone who's had that in the house, knows the smell is a strong one (and one that leaves you wanting to eat that popcorn ;) ).
At the end of the movie, a final (brief) online survey was taken by everyone, and a discussion ensued. We all agreed that the Febreze did its job. Three cheers for a product line that does what it's supposed to do.
I stand behind the product now, and our friends say that they do too.
