Lavender is a smell that always reminds me of my youth. When I was younger, I would stay with my nan on the weekends. She had a dresser for my clothes, and she used to line the drawers with lavender scented paper. I loved spending time with my nan so the smell has always had positive associations for me.
The scent of this product is subtle. Much like the other scents in the range, they are gentle and aren't likely to induce headaches or be offensive to the nostrils. I'm not too sure what the "wild" part of the wild lavender name means, but the fragrance does seem to have a bit of a grassy hint to it.
The product comes in a smooth whitish translucent bottle, a look that most Earthwise products have in common, and the top is colour coded with purple for lavender, so you can quickly identify it. I love the locking mechanism, and the entire spray function of the bottle feels firm and durable. When you spray it, the moving parts in the handle/spray top don't jam, they don't squeak. It works very well. The product doesn't leak, and it even has little indentations in the handle to make gripping it easier. The whole thing was very well designed.
The scent does have quite a limited range. It takes several sprays for it to have a noticeable aroma in the room, and it fades rather quickly. I did find that while it faded quickly, the bad odours faded quickly too, never outlasting the air freshener, so in reality, it lasts only as long as it needs to. If you were to use this in a smelly area where you were likely to need to use it a lot, this product may not be the ideal choice, as the liquid could dampen furniture or flooring if the spray is overused. It that case, an aerosol product may be better. But in most cases, this product will be the job well, and in a way that reduces environmental impact.
I like having the option to pick a product that doesn't have harsh chemicals and comes in a reusable and recyclable container. No unnecessary packaging is involved in the product, and the price is fair too. A great company that I would not fear being associated with.
I have always loved the smell of lavender. I had an elderly aunt who used to dry it and put it into little sachets and give them to all her nieces and great-nieces. Those sachets lived in our wardrobes and seemed to hold their perfume for months or until the next crop of lavender was harvested and dried. So I was delighted that I was able to review this air freshener as it took me straight back to my childhood!
Just after I collected it, I had to transport some rather musty coffee grounds in my car. The smell was quite overpowering so I thought I would test out the lavender spray and see if it helped. I have had items before like that, and have learned from experience that even though you might get rid of the offending item, the odour persists, sometimes for weeks. So I sprayed a generous amount of lavender around the area where the coffee had been placed, and closed up the car to see what would happen.
Next morning I drove to work without thinking about the coffee. I had completely forgotten about the offensive odour until I was driving home that evening and spotted the spray bottle, still on the car seat where I had left it. I was amazed - the bad smell had dissipated so completely that I had forgotten it was ever there. That was success indeed.
A couple of days later I bought some fresh fish for dinner. I had forgotten to put my chilly bin back in the car so the fish had to travel home wrapped only in a plastic bag. As you can imagine, that caused another assault on the senses as fish, fresh though it might be, is not the most endearing smell in the world. I still had the lavender spray in the car so after I had taken the fish into the house and put it away, I went back and gave the car the lavender treatment again.
Next morning, there was not a hint of odour left in the car. Again, the spray had done its job and annihilated all traces of any unpleasantness. There was even a very slight hint of lavender in the front seat. So no prizes for guessing what I did with that bottle. It now lives permanently in my car, ready for action next time I have to transport something stinky. I won't mention a certain little boy's sneakers, but they are high on the list of possible offenders!
