Air Wick brings the smells of home to a military dad in Qatar as a priceless holiday gift

Generally people buy air fresheners to mask the scent of their homes. But as this new Air Wick ad by Droga5 shows, the smell of home is just what is needed sometimes.

The Fellers are a family of eight — with dad Kearen stationed in Qatar for the U.S. military. He misses his six kids as well as the life events that happen in any family.

Inspired by their story, Air Wick's scientists created scents based on the Fellers' home as a comforting gift for the holidays. The smell of a cozy fireplace where the family enjoys sleepovers, a broken-in baseball glove passed on through generations, and a fresh-baked family recipe for apple pie were all captured as special memories of home.
