Febreze Plug Air Freshener: a Review

Febreze Noticeables Dual Scented Oil Air Freshener
Procter and Gamble

Febreze Plug is a scented oil plug-in air freshener that alternates between two complementary scents. It was originally sold as the Fabreze Noticeable, but has since been renamed. Many Fabreze products are touted to "remove rather than mask" odors, but this one is marketed as a product that both removes odors but also emits an appealing  "noticeable"  scent—which is the reason for the original name of the product.

The Fabreze Plug has a high and low setting as well as an indicator light to let you know which scent is being dispersed at any given time. The scented oil is designed to last for up to 45  days when used on low. The plug rotates to ensure that the Plug device can fit into any electrical outlet, no matter what its orientation.

New scents are constantly being introduced, but some popular ones include: 

  • Big Sur
  • Fresh Cut Pine
  • Fresh Pressed Apple
  • Bora Bora
  • Downy April
  • Crisp Clean
  • Happy Spring
  • Meadows and Rain
  • LInen and Sky
  • Mediterranean Lavender
  • Island Fresh
  • Hawaiian Aloha
  • Fresh Sky
  • First Bloom
  • Moonlight Breeze


How to Use a Fabreze Plug Air Freshener

  1. Unscrew the two caps on the refill and throw away the caps.
  2. Insert the refill into the warmer unit until it clicks.
  3. Adjust the warmer to high or low, depending on preference.
  4. Insert the unit upright into an outlet. The plug can be rotated as needed, but make sure to keep it upright to avoid spilling.

    Febreze Plug: Review

    Febreze Plug (originally Febreze Noticeable) was created with the understanding the changing a room scent periodically is appealing to people.The unit is nicely designed and easy to use, and you can adjust the warmer to disperse a higher or lower amount of scent. The products work well even in the areas of your home where you have hidden odors, since it also is marketed as a product that removes odors.


    Refill containers are available that allow you to use different scents in the original Plug device. They are available at some of the same retailers that carry the Plug, but may be easier to obtain from online retailers. And product sold as a refill for the Noticeable will also work in the Plug. 

    Considerations: Oil residue sometimes collects on the warmer unit, but you can clean it with a dry microfiber cloth wiped across the surface when the warmer is unplugged. Don't refill the unit upside down without the disposable lid attached, as the oil comes out and it does so quickly. This should not be regarded as a fully "green" product, as it does include mild chemicals. Some users have reported allergies and other sensitivities to this product. 

    The range of a single Fabreze Plug is limited to a single room. You'll need to buy several if you want to scent the entire house.
