Holiday Gift Guide: Agraria Home

Agraria Candles

 I usually try to wait till the week of Thanksgiving to talk Christmas and holiday gift guides, but I’ve got a lot of great items to feature (plus recipes and so many other Christmas posts coming up) that we simply have to start now, in order to get everything in.  We start today with Agraria.  They are a company based out of San Fransisco that sells great home interior items like candles and diffusers, as well as bath and body products for you.

Agraria products are great for friends and family and just about any lady on your list.  (Who doesn’t want their home or themselves to smell good?)  My mother-in-law especially loves candles, so I’ll be giving her Agraria’s Bitter Orange Candle.  Imagine a sweet orange scent with a hint of spice.  I know she will love it!

What’s sets their items apart from the competition is not only their lovely scent but also the elegant look of the products.  Your gift recipient will definitely be proud to display this gift in their home!

I’ve tried their candles and diffusers in my own home.  The diffusers are a an especially good gift and value, as the scent last a long time.  I got a diffuser several months ago, and it still has plenty of liquid and scent.

Febreze Noseblindness Test Review & 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.

Do you have noseblindness?  When we stay in our homes every day, sometimes we get used to the smells and may not always notice when things become unpleasant.  We only become aware of the odors if someone tells us about them OR if we leave our home for a few hours and days. We recently conducted our own Febreze Noseblindness Test, and today I’m happy to share our results, along with more information and giveaway! [Read more…]

Freshen Up Your Home with the Air Wick National Park Collection

Airwick National Parks Fragrances

As I clean house, I love to freshen things up with a little fragrance.  I was recently contacted about reviewing some new limited edition scents from Air Wick. They have partnered with the National Park Foundation to craft fragrances inspired by the natural elements found in our national parks. The new limited edition scents introduced this spring are: Grand Canyon, American Samoa, Denali, Hawai’i, Virgin Islands and Gulf Islands.

Currently I’m using the American  Somoa scent in my kitchen.  Since coconut is one of my favorite scents, I really love this fragrance.  It is a very clean scent and has a tropical island appeal too.  And because it is coconut, that also makes it great for the kitchen, although I think it would be perfect for any room.

I’m also using the Denali scent in my main bathroom.  It has a fresh linen scent, and it really gives your bathroom a “just cleaned” scent.  Because it has cotton/linen scent to it, it would also be great for your bedrooms if you use fragrances in those.

And then I also got the Hawai’i scent.  I haven’t used it in the house yet, but I think it is going to be great.  It has a tropical fruit smell to it, almost like a Hurricane drink.  I’d probably use this in any room except the bedroom.

And then the Grand Canyon has a very sweet, floral fragrance to it.  It’s so nice!  And I think it would be great in an entry hall, bathroom, or living area.

Febreze Holiday Collection Review with Giveaway


After the tree is trimmed, the halls are decked, and Christmas dinner  cooked, we all like to do our last minute clean ups and touch ups around the house before the guests arrive.  Febreze makes it easy for you to freshen your home with the Febreze Holiday Collection.

There are six great holiday scents available:

  • Apple Spice & Delight: The warming scent of fresh-baked apples coated with sweet cinnamon (available only online)
  • Cozy Vanilla Sugar: Sweet as notes of vanilla that comfort you like a cocoon of blankets
  • Cranberries and Frost: Rich as ripe cranberries and frost on a white winter’s day
  • Glistening Alpine: As soothing as a tree-lined mountainside glistening with the scent of pine
  • Winter Magic & Glow: Crisp as sunshine-lit icicles in fresh, frosty air
  • Holiday Bloom & Cheer: As cheerful as a chorus of holiday aromas blended with winter blossoms

The Febreze Holiday Collection is available in the form of candles, spray, air freshener, car vent clips, fabric refresher spray, and Noticeables scented oil.

I received a review pack of the Cozy Vanilla Sugar.  My favorite product is the Noticeables scented oil.  Like other Noticeables products, it is dual scented.  The two scents are Cozy Vanilla and Vanilla Bean.  Both of these are very sweet smelling.  They fill the room with a lovely fragrance without being overwhelming, and since I started using the product I’ve gotten compliments on how nice it smells in the house.

I also received Febreze spray in the Cozy Vanilla Sugar.  It smells very nice, and I think it’s a great product to spray just before company comes over.

And I also received a candle. I don’t burn candles a lot, because of the cats, but I do like to set them out.  Right now I’ve got the Cozy Vanilla Sugar candle on a sidetable right by my front door, so you get a slight hint of vanilla right when you walk in, which is very nice.

I’m really enjoying these products, and I think they’d be of great use to you this holiday season!
