Alright, let’s be honest – I don’t think anyone of us really expected me to be talking about Poo-Pourri on the blog. However, I have been seeing the come back of toilet sprays (Airwick just came out with one), and it’s the summer season which means, DIY all around!
I have seen and heard of Poo-Pourri for a while now – the first time when I was in university, at the campus store. I figured it was one of those gimmicky items and who would want to spend $25 on a tiny bottle of this? I thought it was one of those bathroom sprays that will still smell like bathroom + whatever-else-you-got-going-on so I happily went away without it.
Fast forward a few years, I received an email asking if I wanted to review this product. Again, I was quite intrigued – aside from the cringe-worthy advertisement that went along with this, I wanted to give this a go just in case it was ever needed in an emergency. Plus, the artwork really gets me all giggly – the pictures of cherubs in the background just seems to scream “angels choir singing in the background as you’re taking the dump” or something similar.
I chose to go with the Poo-PourriBefore You Go Toilet Deodorizer in Smoky Woods ($17.95, available here). There are a few other scents available including lavender, tropical hibiscus, original (which lemon scented) and vanilla. You might fooled into thinking that you’re actually shopping for candles.
The large size comes with 4 oz of product which doesn’t sound like much but considering you need about 5 sprays before you go, the size seem reasonable for the price. The black slim packaging makes it a discrete addition to my shared bathroom – it doesn’t feel like an obvious addition to the myriad of sprays that I keep to keep the bathroom smelling nice and fresh.
As you might expect, smoky woods incorporate strong scents of cedar, hickory, and citrus. The smell is quite pungent but really effective. The deodorizer works right away to keep the odour away so you don’t really smell it after you’re done. The product is super easy to use – just spray 4-6 times before you go and flush. The scent starts out quite sharp when you first spray it into the toilet bowl but dissipates after. You flush, leaving no traces of this product or the goodies that’s just flushed down.
The Poo-Pourri is perfect to bring along when you’re going camping, staying overnight outside of your home or just to keep handy at home.
Overall Verdict on the Poo-Pourri
A great addition for your bathroom but also something to keep on the go. I decanted a bit of this product into a travel-ready spray to pop in my everyday bag for emergencies. You can purchase the Poo-Pourri on the Nail Polish Canada website – free shipping on orders over $19 (or $4 standard shipping!)

Does Poo-Pourri Really Work? We Tried It!
I live with a very comical family and it’s some sort of mission between the boys in my family to make the biggest stink in our bathrooms. Most children like to find cloud shapes in the sky, my children like to find shapes in their poop.
Please tell me I’m not alone!
Everyone poops and if you live in a small house, or have a lot of family members, it’s no secret when someone decides to drop a deuce in the bathroom. Have you heard about Poo-Pourri? The commercial on YouTube was viral around Facebook and it became a big joke in our family… this was a product that we MUST have! Ironically, Poo-Pourri reached out to me and asked if we would try out some of their popular scents. How could I turn this down?
Check out the video that went viral, this will surely make you laugh like it did us!
With better review ratings on Amazon than the iPhone 5.. we had to see if it really worked.
We received 5 Poo-Pourri scents. The original, No.2 and Hush Flush are the more feminine scents of the bunch. Each scent has a light perfume smell, but not too strong! You don’t want to blow everyone out of the house with a #2 or with the smell of the Poo-Pourri product. As you can see from my picture above, we have been enjoying the original scent most.
The other two scents that we received were the Bass Ackwards and Royal Flush. These are more manly, leaving a slight hint of a cologne scent behind. I found them both to be very enjoyable.
Everything about the Poo-Pourri product is comical to me. From the name, it’s purpose, the marketing videos right down to the packaging. This would really make for a great stocking stuffer or even a gag gift for a friend. The awesome part is how functional this gift is! Poo-Pourri won’t be pushed aside for shits and grins, pun intended. Poo-Pourri really is a miracle product that can be used by anyone.
How does Poo-Pourri work?
Squirt 3-5 sprays of Poo-Pourri into the toilet before sitting down. You will quickly see a film cover over the top of the water. Poo-Pourri works by trapping the odors underneath this film while doing a #2. After flushing, a pleasant aroma spread through the bathroom and no one will ever known that you took a poop. The only evidence left behind is the smell of Poo-Pourri!
Poo-Pourri is a blend of essential oils, not a chemical cover up like air fresheners!
- NO Harsh Chemicals

My family has been using Poo-Pourri daily, the product works great and THIS is how we stop embarrassing bathroom odors. The bottles pocket sized, perfect for a purse or diaper bag and pretty enough to sit nicely on the back of your toilet. Now that we have tried it, we can’t live without it!
