Glade Expressions Fragrance Mist

Finding the Glade Expressions fragrance mist wasn’t as easy as you’d expect. Every store had one or two scents. No store had them all. I found theĀ  Fuji Apple and Cardamom Spice mist starter set from my grocery store, and I’m glad I picked it up. I wasn’t sure if I’d like another scent better, but no other store had the apple. I am, in fact, quite a big fan of apple-scented products. I’m finishing off a body spray from last autumn that’s a warm apple and pear combination.

I normally don’t go for spiced apple because they tend to be too spicy. This is why I tend to pass up all of those “apple pie” scents. I just don’t like them. A lot of cinnamon. Not so much apple. A quick whiff of this showed that it’s much more balanced, however. The apple is strong and the spice is warm but not overwhelming. Otherwise, I quickly would have pushed this one to a back cabinet shelf.

The container for this air freshener is different, too. Rather than a single bottle that you’d toss when it’s empty, it’s in a white holder. You squeeze around the top, rather than pushing down a button. Each fragrances comes in a removable bottle that you can recycle when it’s empty. Instead of purchasing a new bottle, you simply buy the refills. This is kind of neat, but it could also mean that you wind up with all that containers because you accidentally buy new starter kits or decide to go with another fragrance.

I like how the container is more attractive than older style bottles, though. You can tell what it is, but it’s not so in your face about it. Glade has perforated the label so you can easily pull it off, which I did. However, the white bottle seems just a little too plain. I guess I’d like to keep the label on but have the “Glade” logo appear much smaller. Or perhaps some art deco design under the label. As far as I can tell, each of the scents has a slightly different label. Apple was red, lavender is purple et cetera. I think Glade could expand upon this to make it truly attractive, rather than just less ugly.

But the appearance is really the least important factor. The mist does a great job of sprucing up a room or perhaps covering up a bad smell. It lasts fairly long. I tested sprayed at my mom’s house, and I could still smell it hours later. Although I don’t normally use spray products like this, I might just have to change my ways.

I was provided free coupons for this product from BzzAgent and Glade.

    These are so nice, aren’t they? I generally only keep sprays in the bathrooms, for obvious reasons, and I am REALLY in love with the mandarin cotton scent. It’s just so good!

    Oh, and I agree on the spiced apple-y scents usually being TOO spicy. I was using a spicy pumpkin-y scent (from Glade, actually) that I couldn’t wait to toss (my cheap self refused to toss it until it was empty, lol) because it was just SO strong. It smelled good, but it was overpowering. :/

    I haven’t seen the cotton mandarin anywhere, I don’t think. I’m really not a big fan of cotton scents.

    I’m so frustrated with each store carrying only one or two scents, though. That availability is definitely a huge problem with this line. I don’t know if it’s on purpose, but it’s just stupid.

    I love the apple. It is my favorite.
