Excluding freshly cut grass, Britain’s favorite smells take place specifically in the kitchen which is undoubtedly found within doors.

However, odors and scents that take place naturally in the wild or right outside your doors can have a greater emotional, psychological and even a physical impact on you than the smells that take place

Most of us have probably seen the Old Spice commercials with the confident and fast-talking Isaiah Mustafa, AKA "The Old Spice Man." These commercials first began in early 2010 and have since become a whole series of some of the most popular commercials on television and the internet. But what is it about these ads that make them so appealing? To answer this question, this paper will focus on the commercial that started it all: "The Man Your Man Could Smell Like." Although this ad does surprisingly little to realistically describe the product it is advertising, its clever and difficult to notice of all three first parts of appeal convinced many people to switch to Old Spice, and, at the same time helped Old Spice reach a close connection with its target audience, this way embedding itself into our popular culture.

Some say it’s funny, others say it’s creepy. In any case, this commercial has the internet buzzing. What is it about this ad that make it so appealing? Although this commercial doesn’t realistically depict the product it’s advertising, its clever and subtle use of all three of the primary aspects of appeal (ethos, pathos, and logos) persuaded many to switch to Old Spice, and, as a result, root itself into the popular culture.
Throughout history, people have attempted to enhance their personal odor by using perfumes that emulate nature's pleasant smells.

Some products are even perfumed with industrial odorants to mask unpleasant smells or to appear "unscented"(World of invention, 2006). There are specific chemicals being used in perfumes that have been found to be toxic.
Old Spice’s use of hyperbole is not in the dialogue, but in the visuals they use. The transition from the average bathroom, to ideal places of people’s fantasy’s, such as a boat or a tropical island, suggests that their product will give you a life similar. These visuals affect both men and women that watch the ad. The man in the commercial is fit, seemingly rich, and maintains eye contact with the viewer. Doing so utilizes the common desires of women to pursue their own argument with their partners into buying the product. The same man also sparks the insecurity in the male viewers. Using props such as diamonds or tickets to a show, can convince an audience that the product they are trying to sell can give the consumer the same fantastical effects. While exaggerating the appeal to women's desires and men's insecurity the Old Spice commercial manages to compare the actor to the average man but to push women to compare their partner to the

The most distinct possibility that CleanSpritz has is to branch into the commercial cleaning industry. Only 31.5% of MJ Brenner’s overall U.S. sales derive from the sale of household cleaning products (which is where CleanSpritz’ current market is). 40% of its (MJ’s) sales come from industrial cleaning products.
