Back in the eighties, Mr Culver’s Sparklers stained glass air fresheners were room deodorizers that looked like little works of art.

You could simply hang one up in your window of choice, and a little bit of colored light would shine through, bringing a nice aroma along with it.

Imagine air fresheners that look as pretty as real stained glass yet keep every room in your home smelling like it was just washed with sunshine.

Hang up the Sparklers Owl for a Summer Greens fragrance that’s bright, breezy, spirited as a summer day.

Or choose the Sparklers Tulip with its delightful Floral Medley scent, a naturally-sunny blend of country flowers and rose petals.

The Sparklers Butterfly gives off a Woodlands bouquet that’s clean, green and invigorating as a breath of cool forest air.

Mr Culver’s Sparklers. What a beautiful way to freshen every room in your home.

From The News (Paterson, New Jersey) December 9, 1982

‘Tis the season for family gatherings, fun decorations and the wonderful aroma of holiday greens and winter spice.

Each holiday season, we traditionally decorate trees, doors, windows and even entertaining tables with the beauty of candles, and maybe flowers and greens.

But it’s not only decor that makes the season. Holiday fragrances are almost essential.

This season, a colorful stained glass design air freshener has entered the market. Called Mr. Culver’s Sparklers, these decorative air fresheners are made with slow-release fragrances in non-toxic plastic resins that freshen a room for weeks.
