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!

I founded Mums 'n Chums in 2009 after realizing that the area I live in was drastically underserviced as compared to surrounding areas for support and activities for growing families. Mums 'n Chums grew popular very quickly and I have been dedicated to nurturing that growth through frequent networking, social media engagement and in person meetups. By the end of its first year, Mums 'n Chums had close to 500 members and was receiving regular inquiries from fans outside of its service area, asking when we would be expanding to serve them as well. After much careful research and polling, I expanded the site in May of 2011 to cover the entire North end of the GTA (from Cambridge to Markham), areas I believe are still receiving far less attention than they deserve from other sites and family services. We also changed the focus from small scale local mom and tot meetups to more of an informative purpose, closing down our forum and adding several talented contributors to the blog. We do still offer several large scale family events per year, such as our popular Birthday Bash events and our Holiday Bash in December. Our contests have also become a member favourite, and we strive to offer amazing prizes from trusted brands like Babies R Us, La Roche Posay, Johnson's Baby and many more. In March of 2016, after months of work spent migrating all of the site's content to a new platform, Mums 'n Chums re-launched with its fresh, new look. The changes and expansion have proven a great success and we're still getting inquiries from several other cities within the Greater Toronto Area, whom we have decided to serve as well. I have built this site and its' reputation carefully and look forward to continuing its growth!
