|Product type||Air freshener|
Air Wick was first introduced in 1943 in the United States.
The Air Wick company was for a brief period owned by the Swiss pharmaceutical company Ciba Geigy (now Novartis), before being acquired by the British household products company Reckitt & Colman (now Reckitt Benkiser).
In October 2007 Reckitt Benckiser won a High Court ruling in a lawsuit with Procter & Gamble over claims that the design of Air Wick Odour Stop was an exact copy of P&G's Febreze air spray.
The current Air Wick range includes: Scented oils, Freshmatic Ultra, Freshmatic Compact, Scent ribbons, Scented candles, Aerosol sprays, and Flip and Fresh.
