Glade Expressions Collection Review

I recently was given the opportunity to try the new Glade Expressions Collection Oil Diffuser and
Fragrance Mist.  This collection comes in Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice, Lavender & Juniper Berry, Pineapple & Mangosteen, and Cotton & Italian Mandarin  (fragrance mist only). 



I had some trouble finding the exact scent I wanted in both Walmart and Kroger, but I was able to get the Pineapple & Mangosteen scent in both items.  I tried the Fragrance Mist first and was really pleased with the fruity and inviting scent.  It was like my home became a tropical island paradise without the bothersome sand all over the floor!  Hubby likes the apple and spice scents better, but he was pleased with how well the fragrance enveloped our home while not becoming overpowering.  I was trying to cover some wet dog smell and this did just the trick.  Walmart had the starter kit priced at $2.98 and you can find $2.00 off coupons for them right now on Coupons.com.  That makes a great deal for some wonderful scents in your home.  The only thing I think may be a negative on this mist is that the way you squeeze the two halves together to spray seems to be a little fragile.  I heard a couple of popping and cracking when I used it the first few times and I'm worried that if I put too much force on it, the permanent spray holder will be broke and I'll need to buy a new starter kit again.  This could be a unnecessary worry and it'll hold up for a long time, but it's just something that seemed like a potential issue.



The next one I tried was the Oil Diffuser.  Again, I couldn't get the scent I originally wanted, but at least my two scents are the same so they won't clash with each other when used together.  The oil diffuser starter kit comes with a very pretty wooden lattice and the oil is in the base below the two lattices.  There is a diffuser wick that's just shy of the width and height of the lattice holder, so it's not sticking out the sides or tacky.  I really like that the wick snaps into place in the oil container so I don't accidentally spill it when I move it around.  We could tell the scent was moving through the room after only about 30 minutes of having it together.  It's a very subtle scent and not at all obvious or overpowering.  It just gives you enough scent to fill the room gently.  I guess if you put it in a smaller room than a living room, you'd probably have a stronger constant scent.  As it stands, I really like that it's subtle and lasting.  The pretty holder goes perfect with my decor too, so that's an added bonus.  It'd be nice if they came out with several different styles of holders so different tastes and decor can be covered.  The Oil Diffuser starter kit was $8.49 at Kroger, but I am sure it'd be cheaper at Walmart or somewhere like that.  There's currently a $4.00 off coupon for the starter kit on Coupons.com.

All in all, I really liked these products and will probably get the refills in the future to keep these wonderful scents going!  Have you tried these yet??  What did you think of them and what scent did you get?

I purchased the Pineapple & Mangosteen scent and have been pretty happy with it. I keep the diffuser in my daughter's room to fight the dirty diaper odors and it's done a good job. I can't wait to try the other scents, they were all out when I went to Walmart.

LOVE Glade products! I like that a company is finally using Cardamon as a scent, I feel like that is the one spice/scent underused in products. Great review!

The pineapple & mangosteen scent sounds like it'd be a nice "flavor."

I haven't tried Glade in years to be honest. I usually make my own air fresheners but I may have to try again to see...

I use oil diffuser or candle a lot (either lemon or lavender scented) but I found this DIY thing on Pinterest - baking soda and scented oil in a small jar...brilliant!

That sounds like an interesting scent...typically I go for berry smells....but this sounds nice and tropical

I also tried the Pineapple Mangosteen. It took me 7 stores to find one with any in stock in my area. I love the oil diffuser.

I love the look of the oil diffuser. It would blend into my decor nicely. Much nicer than the plug-in ones. I have 2 dogs so a room air freshener is a must.

Those are such interesting fragrances! Lavender and juniper berry sounds lovely.
