Not your Grandmas Glade: Review

I love candles, especially really expensive candles because I feel like they burn cleaner, longer and the fragrance is exceptional.  For the most part this is true, but there is a brand you can buy at the grocery store, Target, Walmart, etc. that will fill your home with long lasting scent.  Before I get to the adjectives that describes the brand, I have to tell a little story.   When I was in college I dated a guy who's Mom was a Glade fanatic.  She had the plug-ins (generic ones too) all over the house.  If I ate dinner there by the time I got home I actually smelled like a Glade plug-in.  I have no idea what scent she used, but after that experience I developed an aversion to any fragrance you could buy at the grocery store.  A few years ago I was given an Apple Cinnamon Glade candle in a Christmas gift and fell in love with the warm apple scent.  Since then they are one of my go to holiday candles because they are so warm and inviting. Best thing about a Glade candle is the way it fills your house with true to life ingredients, I think that helps the fragrance not overwhelm the house.

Recently I got to try two new products from Glade, "Glade Expression Fragrance Mist and Oil Diffuser." Both products come in stylish and reusable holders that blend effortlessly into your home decor. I chose the Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice Oil Diffuser which is described as a ripe, spicy blend of sweet pears and crisp apple with a dash of cinnamon and clove that warms and invigorates.  Also the Pineapple Mangosteen Fragrence Mist which evokes a tropical paradise with the blend of freshly cut pineapples and hints of tangy mangosteen, creamy coconut and passionflower. I love the ease of the oil diffuser as it doesn't require any plug and actually looks quite good in the house.  The fragrence isn't as noticiable as the candle, but you still get a hint every now and then.  The fragrance mist is a no brainer for the guest bath and works just like any other air fragrance I've tried, but looks nicer (btw- the label peels off to leave just an all White holder. Sleek.)
