Lets start with the spray. I was worried that this was a standard aerosol, but I was educated today. Current aerosols are different than old school pre-1978 super-polluting aerosols. Less than 2% of aerosols*, which are specifically approved by the government for medical purposes, still are propelled by CO2, and household use items like hairspray and fragrance mists do not have such horrible propellants. According to Glade, this spray is not that bad for the environment.
The aluminum refill is recyclable.
100% natural propellant.
Product not formulated with phthalates.
So, the technical chemical stuff aside, how does it work? I picked the Cotton and Italian Mandarin which, to me, smells like fresh laundry. It is AMAZING. I have put this container in the bathroom, which now smells like fresh towels every time I spray. The smell lingers for a couple hours and is not overpowering in the least.
Would I buy this again? Yes
Will I finish the sample? Yes!
On to the Glad Expressions Oil Diffuser. The first one I picked up was Pineapple and Mangosteen. It smelled very sweet. The problem was getting the paper into the oil. The plastic coupler didn’t work correctly and wouldn’t lock into place. At first I thought it was right, but the more I thought about it the more I realized it was wrong. I was worried that my husband and I were just somehow not strong enough to do it correctly. To be sure (before I wrote the review) I bought a second one with a coupon from BzzAgent. This time I bought the Lavender and Juniper Berry because I felt the Pineapple and Mangosteen was too sweet so I didn’t want 2 of that same fragrance. When I pushed the paper into the oil, this time, it went quite easily with a satisfying click. You can see in the photo below the difference in the couplers. On the left is the defective one, and on the right is the correct one. The Left has the extra area where the plastic didn’t join properly. Hopefully this was a fluke and not a trend.
On to the product (minus the defect)…The Pineapple is too sweet for me, but does come with the prettiest container, the wood grain one. The Lavender and the Apple scents both come with the white container. I don’t know how the apple smells, but I do like the Lavender, it is floral but not too much, it reminds me of a summer field. The scent lasts for (they claim) about 30 days. I haven’t had mine that long yet, more like 15, but it is still going strong.
Would I buy it again? Maybe, I’d love to see them have the Cotton scent in the oil, and then I would
Will I finish the sample? Yep, they are nice.
So, I have nothing but good things to say about the new Glade Expressions Fragrance Mists. I bought the Cotton & Italian Mandarin in the mist. It’s wonderful. I really hate clean smells, but my boyfriend loves them. This smells citrusy on top of the clean and it just doesn’t get better for a compromise, in my opinion. In the oil diffuser, I tried Pineapple & Mangosteen. I dropped the oil in the floor in the bathroom and it smelled wonderful for days even though I put the diffuser in a different room. Haha. I originally had it in our bedroom, but the smell was so strong, I moved it to the second bathroom. You can still smell it strongly and I set it up on Saturday. (It’s Tuesday) I might like it better if it was offered in the Cotton & Italian Mandarin scent, because Pineapple & Mangosteen is just so pugnant. Overall, I really like the mist, and I will buy again… The oil diffuser, probably not.
The spray is wonderful for a quick burst of scent. The Fuji Apple and Cardamon Spice is perfect for fall. I've got it conveniently stowed in the bathroom for...well ya know. I chose the Lavender & Juniper Berry Oil Diffuser. To be honest, I wasn't expecting much. It's super simple to put together and it's not real big or anything so I thought it would be real fragrant when I opened it and then it would just sit there. Not so! I placed the diffuser in the living room. When I walked in my back door last night I could smell it! Now that's about 4 rooms away from where it is placed and it was hours after I had opened it. This morning I can still smell it!!
The new expressions line also boasts scents like Cotton & Italian Mandarin and Pineapple & Mangosteen. So go ahead now before all your fall activities begin and freshen up your house! :)
I'm a BzzAgent! I received FREE products from www.bzzagent.com and Glade for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own!!
Again, with the packaging, I was hoping to find the Glade Expressions® Lavender & Juniper Berry in the sleek silver container, but I couldn’t find it anywhere. (I guess everyone else likes it too) I choose the Glade Expressions® Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice Fragrance Spray to try. After using this a couple times I totally understood what Glade Expressions® Collection meant when they said their fragrances were lightly layered and designed open up note by note. At first spray, I smelled, “Mmm, apple spice” but then later on, I caught lingering whiffs of fresh apples here, and a unique spice scent over there, as I walked throughout the room. I was as if the scents were layered through the room; they were definitely long lasting, but not in a heavy way. I really like this one, and will go back to look for that coveted Expressions® Lavender & Juniper Berry. ;)
As soon as I arrived home, I just had to try them out.
My thoughts on the Fragrance Mist: It is long-lasting, and it smells absolutely amazing. The two scents compliment each other nicely, and I received several compliments on the fragrance from visitors. The mist is very fine, and (thankfully) it didn’t make my home smell like it had been doused in a heavy, overpowering “perfume” scent. I’m hoping this bottle lasts as long (or longer) as the usual air freshener, as I am 100% in love with this fragrance.
My thoughts on the Oil Diffuser: The overall design of it is very nice, and the scents again, compliment each other nicely. The only thing I did not like, is the fact that the scent of the oil diffuser did not seem to stay strong very long. The claim is that the Oil Diffuser lasts for 30 days, however, I’m just not sure that this is the case.
Perhaps the room is just overly large for one of these product, and with another the scent would be more noticeable.
Overall, these are both great products and I will buy them in the future.
I bought the Pineapple & Mangosteen scent in both the oil diffuser and the spray mist. I love it! My husband who hates most scents loved it, too! It makes me feel like I am on some exoctic tropical island (until I look out the window) LOL
It works really well! The scent isn't really heavy and over bearing. It is nice and clean smelling. The oil diffuser scent last about a month before you have refill it. They spray mist lasted us for almost a one and a half months. It just depends on how much you spray it.
I highly recommend that you buy this product and check it out for yourself. I think you will love it as much as I do.
As a spray and diffuser, the red packaging one (the name escapes me, and I can't find it on google right now) is amazing. My boyfriend is addicted to spraying our room with it just to be able to smell it all the time. I can't get enough of this one. As a diffuser, it lasted a long time, and wasn't too strong or too weak.
I tried this one as a diffuser. WOW. It could have been great, but wow. The first day, it was overpowering strong. Nauseating, even. It consumed the whole upstairs area. Then, the next day... boom. You couldn't smell it at ALL anymore. I think it may be okay as a spray, and I'll try that next.
BLUE - COTTON?
I got the spray of this, and I guess it's just not my thing. I'm not big on linen/clean scents, but my boyfriend insisted. Yeah... I didn't like it. It's bearable, but I wouldn't get it again.
NOTE - diffusers
I had a hard time snapping the thing filled with liquid into the base. Sometimes I had to have my guy push it in for me. Don't give up until you hear it click together, or it's not connected properly.
