My small studio apartment has some very specific pros and cons. Lighting a single Otherland candle can make my whole place smell like peonies and lilacs (pro!). One spaghetti dinner, though, and everything in it suddenly smells like meatballs for hours on end (definitely a con). The reason for this? My apartment is, like, less than 400 square feet. So fun! Despite the effectiveness of candles on the space as a whole, some ~stank~ is definitely harder to get rid of than others. (Like when my dirty laundry basket becomes a tower of clothes higher than my bed.) So when I received a sample of Frey’s Nomad Fabric Freshener Spray, I decided to test it out on basically anything made of fabric in my apartment, and wow, is this stuff amazing.
What does it smell like tho?
The name of the fragrance is Cedarwood/Teakwood/Amber, which, yes, sounds a little vague, but basically, the scent is earthy and outdoorsy...yet refreshing. It’s definitely reminiscent of men’s cologne—but more subtle!—and, in fact, that is specifically why people (including myself) are obsessed with it. As one reviewer put it: “Smells like a strong man who sweeps you off your feet,” which, LOL, but that’s also weirdly so accurate?! (It also comes in Sandalwood/Bergamot/Clove if you like lighter notes though.)
FYI: The Nomad Freshener Spray is 3.2 ounces and great for on-the-go travel, but if you want a larger bottle, the Universal Freshener Spray comes in the same two scents and is a much larger 16 ounces.
Another reason my nose is so taken with Frey’s spray is that I never get any whiff of overpowering chemicals, and according to the product description, it’s made with biodegradable, natural materials and essential oils. It’s also the complete opposite of every other fabric freshener I’ve tried. You know, the ones that smell like artificial fresh laundry?
What do you use it on?
Really, it’s the best thing that’s ever graced my nostrils, so I spray that ish on E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. My bed, my sofa, my pillows, my clothes, my carpets, my curtains, my aforementioned dirty laundry that I procrastinate washing, and just generally the air (I know it’s for fabrics, but this is how I live my life, okay?).
How long does it last?
My only—very minuscule—complaint is that the scent only lingers for about 30 minutes, which definitely explains why I went through the tiny bottle so fast. But in my experience, it also neutralizes any previous odors and leaves fabrics with that fresh-outta-the-wash feel.
The smaller bottle lasted me about three months, which is pretty decent considering the size. But again, if you really want to go all in, get yourself the much larger Universal Freshener Spray and you’ll be set for much longer. (Also, if you buy the double pack, you get 10 percent off, just sayin’.)
The final verdict
I literally *just* ran out of my bottle and am experiencing withdrawals from the musky fragrance, so I’m about to buy some more—and you should too. You’ll be so glad you did when you spray your whole house and your nose takes a whiff of this stuff. If you’re a person who loves that So Fresh, So Clean smell (who doesn’t?!), you need this in your life.
