I have been hearing lots about the new Lenor Unstoppables. Word of Mouth can do wonders for a new product, so when Lenor asked me to review the new revolution in laundry products, I agreed.
Maybe in this case the Power of Smell did more for the Unstoppables.
My postie arrived at the door and handed over my mail. He said you have to tell me tomorrow, whats in that parcel pointing to a large white packet.
The fragrance coming through the paper was lovely aroma. he said, " I was worried something was leaking in the van, however the envelope is dry as a bone, it smells lovely!"
I went inside and opened the packet and the fragrance was even more intense.
They are described by Lenor as the latest breakthrough fabric care innovation from Lenor, Unstoppables are an in-wash scent booster, made from pure perfume in bead format and offering nine times more perfume ingredient than the Lenor Classic range.
Lenor Unstoppables is an in-wash scent booster which provides up to 12 weeks of boosted freshness. There are three frgrances to choose.
Marine character consisting of a watery blend of soapy elements, minerals and lily with sparkling oceanic top green notes.
An exotic cocktail of red berries and cherry blended well with a bouquet of white jasmine flowers and powdery sweet peachy back notes
Luxurious fine fragrance inspired perfume delivering an overall rich creamy and gourmand blend of peach notes and red roses.
You just add them to the drum at the start of the wash so that they can infuse your clothes with their lovely fragrance as you wash.
To look at they remind me so much of the Millions sweets, this was mentioned by a few visitors and family when I have showed them, so I would advise those with children to keep them out of reach.
I had a washing load to get under way. The instructions are simple: 1. Throw the scent beads directly into the washing drum. 2. Add your laundry detergent. 3. Add your fabric conditioner for softness. I love marine type fragrance so that was my first trial. I did just throw in half the amount shown in the cap (picture above.) I wanted to see how little I could use, being a bit of a spendthrift.
After the washing was done, I could smell the fragrance, but it was not as intense as I would want. I have since used just over half a cap and that works well, I have not been using for 12 weeks yet, but so far the fragrance remains.
After three weeks,the towels and sheets in the airing cupboard smell fab,in fact using them in the wash actually perfumes the whole of the downstairs.
They are quite pricey at £5, however I have seen them sold in Wilkos for £2.50 which for me is a very good price, I am not sure £5 will encourage me to purchase but as a treat for bedding, I possibly would. If they work for the 12 weeks they are going to be of more value.
One more thing I have to tell you, you can actually mix and match the little beads of perfume, it makes them a bit more unusual. Sounds daft but I feel like a perfumier, blending my own signature blends haha.
Lavish and Bliss work particularly well for my nose. Chris says it is too 'pink so I use it for Paige and I. He likes Marine.
Being able to play with the scent, will be interesting. I find certain washing fragrance disappears from my awareness after continued use, so this may meet the needs for those who love a whole lot of fragrance.
I am overall impressed with these rather novel little beads of perfume. The postman next morning, wanted more info, gosh he is nosy! He seemed intrigued and said his wife would love them.
What do you think? Do you fancy any of the fragrances, would you mix and match?
For three of you you get the chance to try the full UnStoppable range as Lenor have offered me three sets to giveaway. Ends 11.59 pm 15th October
