Febreze adds new scent to Destination collection
CINCINNATI Febreze has added a new scent to one of its home fragrance lines, inspired by exotic scents from the tropical coastline of Thailand.
The new Thai Dragon Fruit fragrance joins other scents inspired by tropical getaways and international travel, including Hawaiian aloha, Brazilian Carnaval and Moroccan bazaar. The Febreze Destinations collection was created by infusing scents from these locations into the Febreze product line that includes fabric refresher, air effects, candles and noticeables.
“In expanding the scents that Febreze Destinations collection has to offer, we are bringing the exotic aspects of Thailand to our consumers through an authentic scenting experience,” said Scott Beal, Febreze brand manager.
The Febreze Destinations collection is available nationally at food, drug and mass retailers with suggested prices ranging from $2.99 to $7.99.

Rumors also have swirled that Hershey may attempt to outbid Kraft, although Hershey has denied those claims.
