    Hot guys selling a product that’s bad news:
    According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), most store-bought air fresheners consist of formaldehyde, petrochemicals, p-dichlorobenzene and aerosol pollutants [source: EPA]. The agency’s “Indoor Guide to Air Quality” also notes that air fresheners “release pollutants more or less continuously” [source: EPA].

    I’m not sure–somebody who knows more enlighten me–but this seems to fit Marcuse’s idea of “repressive desublimation”–co-optation of ideas, images, slogan to produce an illusion of freedom and liberation while actually pressing hard to achieve the opposite. These ads exploit stereotypes of a certain kind of man to sell nasty stuff. The guys are attractive, though, in their oddly Stepford ways.

    One might hope that the scent is somewhat like that of a man who has just finished a nice, sweaty workout. I’ll take the Man in pics #2 and 5. I’ll bet his scent would do my house fine.

    I wrote a college essay 20 years ago on whether men could be objectified. The professor and I discussed the topic at length, with him arguing No. Rather angrily, it seemed.

    Glad to see that they’re finally getting equal coverage!

    These products, as they are today, are toxic. You are well advised to avoid if you value your health. Do you own research, it won’t be difficult…

    All synthetic scents contain hormone disrupters. I kinda like being able to produce testerone without chemical interference, thanks, so I’ll skip the fake air fresheners.
