Once upon a time, I lived in a building with a washer and a dryer. I didn’t realize it then, but this has become a luxury akin to having a fitness center, swimming pool, and concierge services (I know! I can barely believe such buildings exist, too). Back when I was doing my own laundry and the sweet old Korean man across the street didn’t see all of my drawers, I would make weekly trips to the basement to sort whites from colors and I became a master of the wash-and-fold.
To save some money, I have started taking laundry with me on NJ Transit to the homes of various obliging friends and family who insist they don’t mind that I am using their washers and dryers. I learned recently about a new product that has made me appreciate the task of doing laundry a bit more. I heard about Gain’s new line of fabric softeners and detergents in a variety of scents… but best of all, the face behind the brand’s new campaign is the lovely and hysterical Wanda Sykes. In this awesome interactive YouTube video she leads viewers through a series of questions to find their own unique scent match based on their personality.
According to the video, I am a perfect match for Hawaiian Aloha. It’s like the makers themselves recognize that I’m in dire need of some fun and sun! I answered a few questions pertaining to my taste in shoes and music to help me determine my ideal scent mate. Once I found my perfect match, I was able to share with friends on Twitter and Facebook so they could join in the fun, too. Users get a free coupon for answering all of the questions. If only finding a date were this easy, eh?
“Gain understands, like me, that it’s all about finding the things that make us happy, like scent, and having a little fun,” said Wanda Sykes. “I’ve had a lot of fun working with Gain over the past few months and with their variety of scents. It’s the perfect brand to experiment with to find a scent that is your perfect match.”
So, go on. Give it a go. What’s your perfect scent match?
