ADDING MULTIMEDIA Sometimes the Things You Love the Most, Stink the Most

New Febreze Cleans the Air of Odors with Launch of its Toughest
Formula to Date and “Odor Odes” Campaign

CINCINNATI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Let’s face it: sometimes the things you love the most can be super
stinky. And while other air fresheners mask odors, new Febreze straight
up cleans away stink with OdorClear™ technology — the brand’s toughest,
most effective formula to-date. If you aren’t cleaning the air and the
things you love of odors, you’re breathing it all in….all 500 TRILLION
odor molecules that may be in your home before you are even able to
smell them.

Febreze’s new OdorClear™ technology acts like a stink vacuum: it seeks
out odors and cleans ’em away. Say “buh-bye” to stinky molecules that
linger like last night’s savory Brussels sprouts or this morning’s
bacon, the post-thunderstorm parfum from your dog, “Gordo,” or the fast
food funk your kids left behind in your beloved minivan.

OdorClear™ technology is a proprietary formula from Febreze made up of
hardworking (you could say, superhero-like) odor-eliminating ingredients
called odor trappers, odor converters, odor neutralizers and odor
magnets. Like any great superhero team, each odor-eliminating compound
has a special skill. But, together, they’re a force of freshness that
can’t be stopped. These stink-ending complexes also come from everyday ingredients like
cyclodextrin (a starch molecule made from corn) and citric acid (found
in lemons and other citrus fruits).

To start the year fresh and introduce the new product line, Febreze is
launching multiple TV spots in its new national advertising campaign,
called “Odor Odes”—witty tributes to the things we love, even though
they stink. Actress Kathryn Hahn (“Bad Moms,” “Transparent”) lends her
voice to the campaign.

“I’m very excited to be the voice of Febreze’s new “Odor Odes”
campaign,” says Hahn. “I love that we can humorously riff on all of the
things we love the most that stink. That is real life, people.”

effective formula to-date, New Febreze with OdorClear™ technology, which
is available in Air, Fabric, Car, Plug and smallSpaces offerings.

Febreze, an Official Sponsor of the NFL, will also unveil its first-ever
Super Bowl ad on Sunday, February 5th. The spot, part of the larger
“Odor Odes” campaign, will air during the second quarter of Super Bowl
LI. It provides a humorous look at the much-anticipated and treasured
Halftime Bathroom Break (imagine the game without it!). The Halftime
Bathroom Break is the phenomenon that occurs as millions of football-
and ad-loving fans rush to the bathroom in time between the 2nd
and 3rd quarters.
