Glade Expressions® new, authentic scents review

I'm a BzzAgent and I get to try new products in return for letting the company (and you!) know what I think of them.



Available in Mist or Diffuser forms
One thing about air fresheners and scents for your home;  sometimes they can smell....  fake.  Cloyingly sweet like grape candy, or overpowering like a badly imitated rose or apple.


Now there is an authentic fragrance option for your home.  Exotic elements like mangosteen, cardamom spice and Italian mandarin, by Glade Expressions.®





I found Glade Expressions at Walmart, but they are available in many and most retails stores, including grocery stores.  The scents available were a mixture for a variety of different homes and personalities;

Cotton & Italian Mandarin - Open your home with the bright, breezy blend of cotton and sparkling citrus, honeydew and sandalwood*
Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice - A ripe, spicy blend of sweet pears and crisp apple with a dash of cinnamon and clove that warms and invigorates
Lavender & Juniper Berry - Lush lavender blends with fresh juniper berry, eucalyptus and rose to relax the senses and open your home
Pineapple & Mangosteen - Evoke a tropical paradise with the blend of freshly cut pineapples and hint of tangy mangosteen, creamy coconut and passionflower
*Available in Glade Expressions® Fragrance Mist only.


I chose the Cotton & Italian Mandarin as I love the scent of cotton and linen fragrances as well as products with Mandarin orange.  While I was expecting the cotton to be the prevailing scent with a hint of Mandarin, I would say the opposite is true.  A strong Mandarin Orange scent with hints of cotton underlying.  When I used it throughout my home, I felt the scent was a good match for rooms such as the bedroom or kitchen but didn't care for the fruity scent in the more formal area's like the dining room and living room.

If you have daughters, however, you might have to hide this product from them or they might commandeer it for their own use!  I have a teenage daughter, who after walking into the house and smelling it; immediately asked if she could have it for her room!  She loves the scent!  The fruity scent with undertones of cotton was an instant hit with her and her friends.

I am currently using the fragrance mist, however you have two different choices;

I will be reviewing the oil diffuser next and will be choosing a different scent so I can bring you my honest opinion in the near future!
