We are very excited to be partnering with the Mentos brand to launch this new range of air fresheners.  Inspired by the iconic Mentos shape and flavours, we set out to develop a range of products that encapsulated the fun and fresh attributes of the brand, whilst delivering a fruity fragrance experience reminiscent of the candy.  Whether for car, home, or office, we are confident the innovative gel design and prominent branding will appeal to those who regularly purchase air fresheners and attract the many millions of us with an affinity to the Mentos candy!”, said Balco Brands’ Brand Director, Kathryn Trivella.

Balco Brands has proven to be an exceptional partner who truly grasps the value of our brand’s icons.  Our popular confectionery has been reinterpreted into a uniquely original and innovative air freshener gel that offers an amazing fruity and minty fragrance experience.  We are confident that this creation will be a tremendous success, and a must-have product desired by fans to enhance any ambience”, said Marta Ballesteros, Global Licensing Manager at Perfetti Van Melle

Sold in more than 130 countries including here in Australia there is no doubt Mentos is a much-loved brand.  The Mentos team has developed an amazing art portfolio inspired by its unique heritage and say yes to fresh branding which lends itself perfectly to an array of brand extensions.  We are excited to be launching this range of Mentos Air Fresheners on behalf of Perfetti Van Melle with Balco Brands and are certain the fragrances will be found hanging in cars, homes, and offices across Australia”, said Asembl Managing Director, Justin Watson
