I was super excited when I was picked to review two new Glade Expressions scented products through BzzAgent. I tested out Glade’s new oil diffuser and fragrance mist.
To preface, I’ll admit that I’m not a huge home fragrance person, which may have skewed my opinion. I burn candles on occasion and keep a spray in our bathrooms, but plug-ins and other types of “constant” can’t-turn-it-off air fresheners aren’t really my bag.
Want to know what I thought of the new Glade Expressions line? Read on, my friends!
Glade Expressions Oil Diffuser: Fuji Apple Cardamom Spice
Pros: The diffuser was super cute and didn’t look like the hideous old gel cone-shaped air fresheners that I used back in my college days (WIN!). Two out of the four scents in the line come with the black and white diffuser, and the other two scents have a wood and black diffuser. I actually prefer the wood one, and can’t figure out why the line doesn’t all look the same.
When I set up the diffuser, my house was filled with this delicious, fall-ish scent. I was totally loving it. Our house has an open floor plan, and the scent even traveled upstairs.
Cons: After the first few hours, the scent was INTENSE. If you don’t have an open floor plan home to mute the smell, it would be even stronger. Even with the open floor plan, the fragrance was just too strong for me.
What would be ideal, is if the product’s scent was toned down by, say, 50%, and it had an OFF switch. I really loved the fragrance, but didn’t want to smell it ALL the time, hence the need for an off switch.
Glade Expressions Fragrance Mist: Cotton & Italian Mandarin
Pros: As with the oil diffuser, the fragrance mist was just really pretty to look at. You can peel off the Glade label and the remaining white container is actually really cute. Like, leave it on your counter cute. The product is refillable, so you’re not wasting the entire container every time you run out – you unscrew the bottom, throw out the empty cartridge, and pop in a new one. Easy peasy.
Cons: Again, the scent was on the strong side. Not nearly as strong as the oil diffuser, but strong. I gave our extra upstairs bathroom a spritz, and pretty quickly, the entire upstairs and half the staircase was scented. I’m not sure if I had a defective container, but it was really hard to actually get the product to spray.
Overall, the aesthetics of both are far better than any air freshener I’ve seen, but the amount of fragrance needs to be pulled back for my liking.
