Our humble abode is finally malodour-free. Thanks to Mia Maison Odour Away!
Living in a condo was never part of our plan. In fact, we have recently just had a long overdue roof replacement done in our house, and we were planning to work on a few other nooks a.k.a. kitchen corner and Jed’s room ceiling, for their repair. But the Lord has something else planned out for us, and surprised us with our son making the cut as he passed the ever elusive Philippine Science High School entrance exam! We are beyond grateful, really. The ones who made the cut (Main Campus) are less than 1% of the total examinees. That’s 240 out of the 34,500 who took the test. The transition may not have been an easy one and this deserves another post altogether. How the Lord led us to the most amazing condo owner, and everything that He allowed for us to witness His hand over this season of our lives. Stay tuned. 🙂

Learning a lot as I try my best to make this #StudioHome a “home.” 🏠 One of which is using #furniture to divide an open space into different zones. 🛋 The #organono #screwless #multipurpose #DIY #storage #cubes was a discovery! 📦 Totally beats those flimsy cheapo fabric cabinet sold in #JapanHome 😎 ☝🏻I still have to get hold of box pullouts for the bare shelves. I’m out of ideas on how to improve the #kitchen #dining area. Any suggestions? 🤔 Still not done, but getting there. 🥰 “For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything.” Hebrews 3:4 📖 #WeMakeDo #CondoLiving #home #interiordesign #Homemaker #HandyTips
I digress. But understand that this season of transition is plenty colorful, and apparently our olfactory sense isn’t half spared. From the unexpected expenses that came with our moving in an unfurnished studio unit, to our adjusting to the three of us constantly bumping into each other – it can be fun, sweet, to be honest. What I will never get used to is the odor that tends to envelop the entire 20 square meter studio space.
While I love cooking for my boys, the lingering food odor has its not so blissful story all on its own. Especially since they mostly love dishes like Aglio Oglio, Pasta Alfredo, Beef Salpicao, et. al. Just a few of those they love that are quite heavy on garlic. The range hood does suck the fume out, all right. But it doesn’t really do a lot about the odor. I kid you not, I smell the garlic from across the hall. I found this out when I went down to get something from the front desk and gone back to the unit. I can’t even begin to tell you how it feels to be ready to leave for an appointment, all dressed up, and feel that my perfume was altogether overpowered by the scent of garlic. Haha!
Enter Mia Maison’s revolutionary new concoction – Odour Away.
Unlike a lot of home fragrances available in the market, what I love about Mia Maison’s Odour Away is that it does not merely mask the malodour, it eliminates them entirely. I had to see (rather smell) this for myself to actually believe.
Odour Away has 4 different variants: Kitchen Bliss, Bath Time, Clean Space, and Anti-Tobacco. Guess what instinctively held on to? Yep! The Kitchen Bliss bottle! I honestly don’t wanna go back living without it. I love how it magically drowns the garlic smell away. I love it more that I no longer have to step out of the condo smelling like eau de Salpicao. Lol!
Odour Away Scents Variants:
Kitchen Bliss works by ensuring that your food prep can be much more enjoyable when you are not attacked by strong odor from food prep and cooking. Fruity medley of Raspberries, Sweet Cherries and Peaches are mixed with Red Roses and Aromatic Aldehydes to counteract any fishy scents (literally and figuratively) that may occur in the kitchen and dining area.
Bath Time mimics the scent of floating cool and clean soap suds floating around and about. Sparkling Lemon and Fresh Green Notes washes away weariness of the day as Jasmine, Lily of the Valley and Warm Cedarwood ensures that even the peskiest of bathrooms stay amazingly pristine.
Cleans Space transports you to total Zen mode. Green Tea infused with zesty Blood Orange and other Exotic Florals. Clean Space creates order amidst the chaos. Witness this amazingly green scent eliminates the worrisome odors of the day and be at absolute peace.
The epitome of our Odour Away, Anti-Tobacco harnesses the cleaning scent of Lavender and Bright Citruses. To give Anti-Tobacco long lasting freshness, Mia Maison added a few marine aromatics to the mix like Watery Notes, Sea Salt and Ambroxian (a chemical derivative of the insanely expensive Ambergris). All of this sits in a bed of warm White Sandalwood. This fresh, inviting scent will elevate smoke-soaked rooms or even the office pantry room.
How do I love Mia Maison’s Odour Away? Let me count the ways:
- Mia Maison Odour Away does not merely mask the malodour, it eliminates them entirely. I don’t know about you. But I love a clean smelling house all day long. 🙂
- Proven to combat the most irritating of smells — even Tobacco. Tobacco is Jeff’s number one asthma trigger. Don’t let me get started with the dangers of second and third hand smoke.
- Odour Away uses nano-tech to break down the chemical component of bad smells.
- Mia Maison Odour Away is available in all Mia Maison Kiosks nationwide. Yay! I don’t have to run out of stock! This means clean smelling home all year round.
How does Mia Maison Odour Away work exactly?
Odour Away oil is able to interact with malodors leading to reduction of the negative perception, giving a pleasant and harmonic smell. Odour Away reduction takes place immediately after and it remains over the area for quite a long time.
The air purifier’s scrubbing effect is used to reduce the concentration of airborne contaminants and can be useful for people who are suffering from allergies and asthma. Our homes can now be free of smoke, mildew, and other malodours through the Mia Maison Air Air Purifier system.
Kudos to Mia Maison for yet another innovation in home fragrances! Answered prayer for us home makers, to be honest. In this revolutionary age where anything is made possible, I love that we can now take away the after effect of having to enjoy a sumptuous meal at home. Especially true for us condo-dwellers, with emphasis to those who are enjoying a studio one like our little family does. There’s no reason to smell what you had for lunch all day long anymore!
Mia Maison Odour Away Scents in Waterbased Oil, Aromatherapy Oil, eReed Diffusers and Aerospray ranges from Php 808 to Php 4,000 and are available in all Mia Maison’s kiosks nationwide.
