Glade Expressions™ Collection: My Experience
By: Sara Hodge
I’m not one to purchase fragrance sprays for my home– any I have tried in the past were either too overwhelming, didn’t last long enough to make them worth using, or simply didn’t have a pleasant enough smell.
So when I was approached by Glade to try their new Expressions™ Collection, I was sceptical. But when I heard the collection was subtle, long lasting and that the oil diffusers were made with (although not entirely) natural ingredients, I was more interested in giving it a try.
Being a room fragrance spray newbie, I wasn’t sure what to expect from these products at all, but I was surprised, even impressed by several things:
- The oil diffusers (both of which smelled lovely and not overwhelming in a large room), were a very easy and subtle way to bring a light scent to a room. Every starter kit contains a decorative holder, oil bottle and diffuser card and once in use lasts about 30 days.
- The oil diffusers work very quickly when first assembled- you don’t have to wait very long for the room to fill with scent. I was concerned with how stong it was in the beginning, but it did become more subtle as it started working.
- The decorative holder for the oil diffuser (available in wood grain or flat white panel designs) is very discreetand looks like an ordinary candle holder-type decorative accent, blending nicely into the room’s decor when placed on a shelf, table, hutch, etc.
- Glade Expressions™ Fragrance Mist is refillable and easy to use.
- The room spray is quite long lasting, even in a large room and yet doesn’t ovewhelm in a small room. I found it to last approximately half an hour in my large dining room, and about the same in my average size kitchen and tiny powder room. A word of caution though if you, like me, are a fragrance spray newbie- a little bit goes a looooooong way! I learned this lesson the hard way the first time I gave a very generous spray in my family room! Use short bursts and not long, lingering sweeps as I did!
- The fragrances are lovely. Really lovely. I had no idea what to expect from the one called “Cotton & Italian Mandarin™”, but I love it. Very clean and fresh smelling- not at all like the air fragrances I used and hated in the past. And the Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice? Yummy. Think apple cinnamon but better and you’re there. The oil diffuser scents were also nice and light, the lavender being fresher and the pineapple being sweeter.
And there you have it- an official room fragrance convert. Will I use them every day? Probably not the sprays, although I do like them and they’ll sure come in handy when we need a little freshness around here. But the oil diffuser? It’s staying put on the hutch in my dining room!
