Mop Mrs; Does your air freshener smell worse than the odour you're trying to mask? We put our noses to the test to give you a whiff of what's good and what's not.

Peony Blossom room mist This had a lovely sweet-smelling scent which lasted long after being sprayed.

You only need a few light squirts to leave your home with a lovely, fresh floral smell.

My pick of the bunch, this scent was spot-on and not too overpowering and the bottle won't look out of place in your home.

Overall, a great product and, despite being a little bit more expensive, this will leave your home smelling of roses. Stars: Price: pounds 2.05 Available: Marks and Spencer Smart Price air freshener It's hard to detect what the scent is on this air freshener as it doesn't tell you on the very basic-looking bottle.

After a few sprays I detected a slight floral scent which reminded me of pot pourri.

However, the scent was barley detectable and didn't last long.

Despite being good value, you would need to use quite a lot of spray to refresh your home. Compared to the other brands this was disappointing. Stars: Price: 29p Available: ASDA.

Lavender Breeze air freshener With an overpowering fragrance, just one or two sprays of this is enough to refresh your home.

If you're a fan of lavender then this is right up your street but I found the spray a bit too highly-scented for my liking.

The bottle has a nice design of lavender flowers and should last for a good while, depending on how often you use the spray.

Great value for money and worth picking up on your next shopping trip. Stars: Price: 59p Available: Aldi Purple Blossom air freshener This had a lovely refreshing scent that will leave your home smelling pleasant.

You only need a few sprays and the fragrance lingers for quite a while.

Great to have handy in your cupboard for when you want to freshen up your home.

I also liked that this product is good value for money and the bottle design is decent enough.

Stars: Price: 69p Available: Lidl
