I was lucky enough to have a partly filled bottle of the earlier version of Frangipani Air Freshener when I was given the new version (rebranded as Pacific Frangipani Air Freshener) to review. This meant I was in a position to compare the two products, a useful way to evaluate the improvements as well as the product itself. I had purchased the original version a few months ago and had found it so economical to use that I still have a third of the bottle left. However, these products have a long shelf life: the original version has an expiry date of June 2019, and the new one will be good till July 2020!
I started out by trying the sprays in two separate rooms. Several of us had spent the night in close quarters in a couple of small rooms in a cabin, so it seemed like a good idea to give each room a separate blast. I noticed that there was no apparent difference between the two scents. I closed the door on each room and left them for a few minutes. When I went back in, there was a slight difference in effect. The original spray had completely dissipated, leaving a fresh impression but little else. In the other room, where I had sprayed the new bottle, there was a lingering scent of frangipani - barely noticeable, but definitely there. I asked a couple of the others to double check and they confirmed my impressions. Frangipani is a delightful scent so it appealed to all of us.
The packaging is much easier to read on the new version. The print is red and black, and this is much clearer than the original green and black. The font is also easier to read. Most of us thought the new pink and red droplet design was more eye-catching than the original green, teal and pink leaf design. The spray lock is the same colour as the rest of the trigger mechanism, however, unlike the old version which is black - the black is actually easier to see as you can instantly recognise where the lock is!
The new version features the history of the product and also several ingredients which are either new or replace the originals, although it appears they are there to improve the efficacy of the product rather than to change its purpose. Both versions are free from propellants and harsh chemicals and are packaged in an attractive clear container which presents a clean, modern appearance suitable for any bathroom or kitchen - unlike some aerosol cans which can quickly become rusty and unsightly when stored in a damp environment.
I do like the new version as the improvements certainly make it a more attractive product. Being visually impaired in one eye, I found the pack much easier to read and more likely to stand out on a supermarket shelf. And I liked the way the scent of the frangipani lingered so that you could enjoy the effect long after spraying. We could still notice it 20 minutes after spraying.
