Good point, DeeAnna.
Personally I wouldn't make anything with vodka anyway for a couple of reasons, and especially if it could end up in the hands of a minor, which it could if given to other people.
I have used those plug-in scent thingies, but you are so right about some of the scents being cloying! Fragrance is such a personal thing.
And opening windows and doors in sub-zero weather to air out the joint, been there too. More often than not, for me it's in cheap motels. Less about cloying air fresheners than about just plain nasty air. Fresh air is so nice, even if it is cold.
A funny story. My granddaughter and I were seeking overnight lodging in Roswell, NM one night and I pulled into the parking lot of a motel on the main drag through town. It looked familiar and I thought we'd probably stayed there before. When I mentioned that to her, my granddaughter said, 'Grandma that's the one that smells so bad we couldn't sleep.' I was glad she reminded me, because it had been just horrible. We ended up staying at a very nice, but pricey hotel that night. But no need to air out the joint.
