FTC Squelches False Claims for Deceptive Mosquito-Repellent in Aromaflage Perfume and Candles

By Peter Moreno

A New Jersey company, Mikey & Momo, Inc., and its owners agree to settle Federal Trade Commission charges for false claims. It turns out the efficacy claims of the products are unsubstantiated and false. The charges are for deceptive claims to sell mosquito-repelling perfume sprays and scented candles.

Per the FTC, the efficacy claims for the company’s Aromaflage products – marketed as “fragrance with function” are not supported by scientific evidence. Not only that, the multiple five-star Amazon reviews for the products are from one of the owners and other family members.

The FTC states that the company principals, Michael Fensterstock and Melissa Matarese Fensterstock may not engage in future deceptive conduct. Moreover, the owners must conspicuously disclose any material connections between a reviewer or endorser, for potential products.
