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.

Noseblind (nohz-blihnd) — The gradual acclimation to the smells of one’s home, car, or belongings, in which the affected does not notice them (even though their guests do).

Are you noseblind? Consider this: You cook an Italian dish that is loaded with garlic. Your nose adapts to the smell of the garlic because its physical response is to normalize new smells. Now you’re used to the garlic smell because your brain has been re-programmed to basically ignore the smell of the garlic. Guests arrive and are overwhelmed by the smell of garlic. They judge you. You are unaware of a lingering odor.

You know such a house…the one with animals, the one with the smell that smacks you right in the face when you come through the door. But the people living there probably don’t know!


I was eager to try out the Febreze Noseblind test, just to see if there was something to this whole “Noseblind” thing. It turns out that the house had a stale odor to it. To be fair, we just moved in and the house had been empty (and closed up) for more than two months. But, yep, it had a stale odor, which we recognized at first but we had become noseblind to it after several days!

Boy oh boy, was there a difference once we experimented with Febreze. The candle was our favorite by far, as it made the whole house smell better! All of their products are amazing, and I use each and every one of them. No matter what your preference, they have the product for you — Air Effects spray, fabric refresher, NOTICEables warmer, or a candle, to name a few. I also like to use the fabric refresher on the furniture just to keep it smelling fresh and clean.

    I have a big Labrador, so I’m pretty sure I’m noseblind to the ‘dog smell’ as with any pet owner. Febreze is pretty effective in eliminating these odors.

  2. Nicole Dz says

    The odor I would like to get rid of in my house is the dog smell my dog leaves behind on the carpet an furniture.

  3. Jackie says

    I’d like to get rid of the dog smell on the couch. I love my dog…but she sleeps on the couch all day and it stinks.

  4. Karen Glatt says

    I know that Noseblind is true because I need to get rid of the dog and cat smells in my home. Guests have told me that it smells. Febreze really works. I like the Febreze Air Effects! They really get out the odors.

    Yes we could use some help with the litter box.
