If you follow me on Instagram you know that we love family movie night around here. A good family flick, popcorn and snacks is all we need to have a blast. This past weekend we watched one of our favorite movies “Aliens in the Attic”. By the way those chocolate rice cake snacks were awesome with peanut butter. 😉
I received a package from Febreze with some of their goodies and a couple of envelopes with instructions. It turns out we had to take a few surveys at different times to determine if we were noseblind. So you’re probably wondering what this noseblind thing is. Basically it’s nasal condition where you become accustomed to the odors in your home over time. In other words, the stinky trash, pet or dirty diaper smells will no longer stand out to you. However, your guests will smell it, but probably won’t tell you. I was very curious about my stepson’s answers since he currently only stays over on the weekends and doesn’t get a chance to get used to our house smell.
In case you’re curious, here are the results:
- The initial result of the noseblind test was that our house smelled like chicken. I could understand why since we had made Chicken Alfredo for dinner that evening. However, I truly hadn’t noticed.
- The next survey everyone pretty much agreed that the house smelled like popcorn. This was before the movie, but after popping popcorn.
- After the movie, the popcorn smell was very faint and almost unnoticeable because we all became accustomed to it.
Good thing I was armed with some odor eliminating arsenal and after spraying the living room with Febreze Air Effects and plugging in a Febreze Noticeables, everyone agreed that the house smelled AMAZING. I even got an awesome smelling candle which happens to match my living room colors (double plus!).
So am I noseblind? Yup,and it surprised me because I’m typically sensitive to odors. However, I’ve always been a fan of Febreze products so the test simply confirmed that I need to continue using them since my sense of smell is deceiving.
