I found a spray of Glade air freshener when I was having a sort out of my kitchen cupboards before they were replaced. I couldn't remember buying it, as I don't use the sprays often. I usually prefer to open a window to keep the house fresh when I can. I packed it up in a box and couldn't find it when I actually needed it when the renovation made some whiffy odours to travel round the house. Now it has found it's way back into the kitchen cupboards so I thought I may as well use it. I liked the sound of the vanilla and magnolia fragrance too.
I don't know what price I paid but my sister loves the smell of this - my opinion follows - and she recently bought the same size 300ml can for £1 in Poundworld. This seems good value for the amount you get and considering the scent isn't weak. The can looks a little different from the one shown here- but it is still mostly yellow and white and shows a picture of a vanilla pod and the magnolia flower. The label says we can expect instant freshness and long lasting aroma, and that to use it you should spray it towards the centre of a room. This does seem to help the scent spread out evenly, as if you spray it in short bursts all over the place, it is easy to underestimate the strength of the scent you will end up with. I am happy with spray top in general because it is responsive and delivers a decent amount of Glade at once. It hasn't got sticky or ceased working after a while either. The Glade isn't recommended for use on fabrics, otherwise the safety warnings are standard and obvious - the product is flammable and shouldn't be sprayed in a poorly ventilated area or near your eyes.
I love the warm scent of vanilla in general, and I think it is a cosy scent that I would happily use in many rooms. I do think that it is one that you either love or hate though, and I must say that if you have a low tolerance of the aroma, you should avoid this spray like the plague! It is to be honest a bit strong even for me. I find it is bordering on the sickly, and I find it actually quite irritating after a while. It seems to be quite an artificial vanilla scent, so it smells like you have used a room spray, rather than that that you have been baking something delicious with vanilla pods. As for the magnolia perfume, sadly I can't detect that at all, and I think that is not surprising considering the heaviness of the vanilla. I think the two scents would have combined well, so it is a shame they are not more evenly balanced. I have been careful to give the can an extra good shake before spraying in case that made a difference but it doesn't really.
One positive side of the vanilla strength, is that you need to give only a tiny spray into the centre of a small room to perfume it entirely. It certainly overpowers any aroma you want to disguise - I have mostly used it to cover a strong and foul smelling muscle rub my boyfriend has been using, but I am not sure that in the long term I don't actually prefer the smell of the latter! I am sure it would cover something like cigarette smoke because of this. The scent seems to smell strongly for about an hour or two, and then fade to be still just about detectable for a couple more which is great if you like it, but not so much if like me you find it a bit heady even if sprayed sparingly. I am in the minority in my household as regards scent though - everyone else thinks it is sweet and pleasant which is the only reason it hasn't gone in the bin.
The other downside for me is that even a well shaken spray does deliver a fairly damp feel to the air immediately after spraying. It sort of settles on you gradually if you are near the spray point but this disappears very quickly so I wouldn't let it put me off if I liked the product otherwise.
Overall, this does disguise odour and you really don't need to use much to gain this effect. So if you like the scent, and can get the spray for a pound, it is great value for money. If you wanted to smell magnolia, you will probably be disappointed as I certainly couldn't detect it. If you like a very sweet toned vanilla perfume, I am sure you will find this fantastic, but I can't warm to it and so wouldn't re-purchase. In fact I am more likely to want to open a window after this has been used than before! I have decided to rate it 4 stars because it definitely works, and perfume is a personal thing.
I love my home to smell fresh and clean and as a smoker and owning 2 hamsters and a gorgeous cat and having a boyfriend often here with his little dog it can be rather difficult to keep the place smelling really nice and fresh, especially when we wake up in the morning things can smell a little whiffy to say the least!
Course I open windows and clean often and I am a great fan of burning scented candles and oils and so on but sometimes its just nice to be able to spritz around a fragrance for that instant freshness and I'm a great fan of Glade as a brand and so when I spotted a can of this in my local Sainsbury's store, being a fragrance I hadn't seen before and only costing £1.23 I thought it had to be worth a go!
This comes in is white and light cream coloured can with a picture shown of a flower and of a vanilla pod on the front of it and we are told what it is and who it is by and that it is a Johnson's product and then on the back of the can we are told how to use it, lots of warnings and so on (and in foreign languages too) are also given, the size is stated (Which in this case is 300ml and the only size I have seen this available to purchase in by the way) and contact details for the manufacturer are fully listed. To the top of the can there is an integrated push button aerosol style plastic dispenser to it which is strong and easy to use and all in all the can looks really nice and of good quality that you expect from a Glade product.
All you do with this of course is to press the strong and robust plastic button to the top of it and the spray shoots out until you release your finger off it as its aerosol of course. A fine spritz comes out quite fast so you don't need to use very much at all and I like this one very much indeed as it isn't a soaking wet spray which I don't appreciate using around carpets and my lino flooring. I've used sprays in the past of which the liquid has splattered and left nasty, greasy marks on my furniture and my knick knacks, this really doesn't do that thankfully!
This sprays a wonderful and not one bit cloying or overpowering fragrance of naturally, sweet vanilla which is a very warm fragrance along with a soft scent of gentle white flowers which of course in the magnolia this is meant to contain and although for me the most art of this scent is vanilla you really can smell the notes of the magnolia too.
Once sprayed I find the scent of this to linger in my home about an hour, ok not all that long but although the initial fragrance of this disappears rather fast when that fragrance has gone it seems to have took any nasty niffs along with it which suits me just fine!
This for me disguises smells very well indeed and simply freshens up a room and helps to get rid of smells you don't want and I appreciate the fact very much indeed that I don't need to go mad spraying it to get the results I require so thumbs up from me!
Widely available from all good supermarkets etc.
I am not the kind of person who keeps the same aerosol and sticks to the same scent every time, there are so many different ones that I like to try new ones. I love vanilla as a scent and so I am most likely always swayed more to these kind of scents which is why when I saw this Glade Magnolia & Vanilla spray at Tesco I had to have it. I always usually use these kinds of sprays in and around the house to eliminate bad odours and keep it smelling nice, Glade are a well known brand and normally I buy Airwick so I was keen to see what this Glade one was like to see if there were many differences between the well known brands.
This Glade aerosol comes in a tall metal can as you'd expect from an aerosol and the top is a warm yellow colour which has a push down head to release the spray. It contains 300ml inside which seems to be quite a lot and in terms of the design it has the Glade logo on the front and then a picture of magnolias and some vanilla pods, it is quite a pretty design and it has the warm yellow through out to make it really bright looking. It says the scent name on the front and then down the side it has safety instructions and information on the company. It stood out to me on the shelf next to other brands as it looked like a good quality product and the colour caught my eye.
GLADE VANILLA & MAGNOLIA AEROSOL
As with all items like aerosols, the can has quite a number of safety warnings to make sure this product is being used with complete safety. This product should be kept out of reach of children and also kept away from any sources of ignition with it being a highly flammable product. You should not breathe in the spray and if it comes into contact with eyes, you should rinse instantly with water and get medical advice. This should be kept out of reach of sunlight and kept away from temperatures higher than 50 degrees and should never be sprayed near a naked flame. These are all quite self explanitory but are best to be warned about for safety.
You are meant to shake this spray well before use but to be honest I don't really, I did the first time but after that I haven't. I think what I liked the most about this spray is how powerful it is when sprayed, you don't need to push hard but just push down enough until it releases the spray and a good burst of the product comes out so you don't need to spray too much at all and it seems to work right away which is brilliant as some sprays can have a really useless power to them. It sprays out quite high if you aim it in the centre of the room like it says to do on the can it should evenly distribute but do not use it on fabric, it warns.
It has a lovely smell, this spray it is really sweet and it is quite strongly vanilla but I love that, the magnolia is much more subtle but it is a very nice combination and it gives the faintest hint of musk to it. I have been using this spray in the bathroom and my room on cold days where the window has not been open well and instantly it fills the room with a warm vanilla scent and eliminates odours right away. Out of every aerosol I have ever purchased, I have to be honest, this one really does seem to effectively work and it makes the room smell great right away and even when I go out and come back in an hour later, the faint scent of vanilla is present.
I think it is very good value for money and I'll definitely be buying this particular spray again. It is just great the fact that you don't need to spray too much of it at all for it to really work well in a room and make it smell nice and the fact it gets rid of bad smells effectively and clears them, is even better. It is a reputable brand which makes it better and it smells really nice so I honestly can't say anything bad about it, you don't need to use too much so a 300ml can has lasted me a good few months. It depends how regularly you are using this though but even still, it isn't too pricey if you need to buy it on a regular basis which is great.
This spray can be purchased in all supermarkets, I bought mine in Tesco and for a 300ml can they are charging £1.23 which is a really good price and not that much at all.
The official Glade website is the SC Johnson site at http://www.scjohnson.co.uk/.
I think cans of air freshener are a necessity in the house. I've tried various kinds of room freshener but always seem to come back to the aerosol cans or the more environmentally-friendly room sprays. I've tried the blocks, gels, candles and things that are powered by batteries that seem to possess an uncanny knack of squirting at you as soon as you walk past them, but always seem to fall back on the aerosol cans. They mask smells instantly, especially the results of cooking and odours of rather an unfortunate nature from toilets and bathrooms. We have a different fragrance for each location in the house and the only reason I am reviewing this one at the moment is because it's close at hand.
Glade has been around for years in one form or another and is manufactured by the S C Johnson company (who also makes Toilet Duck, Mr Muscle, Pledge & Raid among other products). The air fresheners come in a variety of fragrances, including Magnolia and Vanilla which I've just used.
It comes in a highly compressed can about 24cm tall and contains 300ml. The can itself is yellow, white and dark blue and has a picture of a magnolia blossom on the front. On the reverse of the canister you'll find simple instructions in a variety of languages. Basically you shake the can well, point towards the centre of the room and spray. It doesn't recommend using this on fabrics, though.
Because it's a pressurized canister and extremely flammable, there are the usual warnings about keeping it away from sources of ignition, sunlight, naked flames or any incandescent material. You should also not smoke while using it. It does advise to only use in well-ventilated areas which, to me, partly defeats the object of an air freshener.
To use the freshener, it's a simple matter of pointing the canister away from you towards the centre of the room and pressing the yellow button on the top - the longer you leave the button depressed the more spray is released.
Is it effective? The answer has to be 'yes' because it's such a strong aroma that it masks anything unpleasant. The 'smell', for want of a better word, does also last a long time. The fragrance is supposed to be magnolia and vanilla, however in my opinion it's vanilla with a slight touch of something else which may or may not be magnolia. Certainly the most noticeable fragrance is that of vanilla (I must remember to smell our magnolia tree when it blooms next to see if I can recognize the scent). It's certainly not an unpleasant fragrance - it doesn't smell particularly unnatural like some cheaper air fresheners - although I do know people who don't really care for the smell of vanilla.
The can lasts a long time (dependent, or course, on the number of times you have to use it). The price is usually around £1.23 (Sainsburys currently have an offer of buy 2 for £2) which I think is quite reasonable.
Does it get my recommendation? Well it does the job it's supposed to do, has a pleasant-enough smell and is not costly, so yes it does.
AHHHH... The smell of vanilla that meets you when you enter the house. Air fresheners add a good accent to the personality of ones home. They offer a good aroma without causing harm to your breathing (so long as you ventilate your home properly and regularly).
I usually buy this air freshener for £1, a very fair price considering the quality of the aroma and the duration of it + Glade is a well known company unlike some other cheap air fresheners that I personally do not trust smell wise and the contents of the product.
This air freshener comes in a long cylindrical can with plastic sprayer/lid. The air freshener looks nice on the bathroom shelf as it has a very nice looking design with a picture of vanilla and magnolia with a vibrant yellow theme both on the can and the lid. The can is also very stable when on a shelf as it does not wobble with the slightest of touches.
The smell is dominated by the unavoidable aroma of vanilla with a very faint after tone on magnolia (you would not know it smells of magnolia without looking at the can). So realistically you are buying a vanilla air freshener with a slight after tone rather that a magnolia and vanilla air freshener. But still the smell is very soothing when comparing to some other exotic scents. The smell does fade after a few hours to leave a very pleasant lingering smell. Vanilla is by far my favourite flavour as it has a very present smell without being overwhelming. This products scent is best for you if you like to relax during the evenings.
Ease of use:
VERY simple hold the canister away from yourself and push the button on the top. Spray comes out as far as 30 or so centimetres (so avoid spraying in close proximity to people).
Would I recommend:
If you enjoy the smell of soothing vanilla at an affordable price then go ahead and get yourself a can of Glade vanilla and magnolia air freshener. I would recommend due to nice smell and cheapness.
I don't like having lots of aerosols around as I sometimes feel a bit like if you can smell really obvious fake smells that it as though you are masking something that isn't very nice but sometimes you do need to have an aerosol at hand for when you don't have much choice!
I bought this for just £1 which I thought was a very good price to pay.
It comes in a long, tall bottle which is what you'd expect from a product like this. It is nice and bright with being yellow and has blue writing and pictures of flowers on it so it does look as appealing as a bottle of aerosol possibly can I think!
To use it I give it a little shake and then press the button down which then sprays out the fragrance. It does shoot out quite a long way, I always make sure my hand isn't over the hole or it gets in the way.
The smell is very much of vanilla in a very nice kind of way, it is sweet but not overly so so that it isn't overwhelming. It isn't subtle though either so if you do not like vanilla then definitely don't buy this! The magnolia is a very, very subtle second note on this which isn't very obvious at all but compliments it well I think.
The smell lingers for quite a while although after a few minutes it's not as strong and I like it, I think after about twenty minutes it is more of a subtle smell which is nice to have around. It doesn't seem to linger on people though so if I sprayed this whilst in one room and then went into another it wouldn't stick to my clothes which is a good thing!
All in all I think that this is an aerosol which isn't too bad and smells quite nice.
I have a bottle of Glade Magnolia and Vanilla aerosol underneath my kitchen cupboard. I've had it for a while now but I've still hardly used it, mainly because I just don't really like the smell. I've tried using it a few times, and at first I couldn't decide whether or not I actually liked the smell or not. I finally decided I didn't. I have used Glade air fresheners lots of times, and usually I really love them. I enjoy trying new fragrances and though Glade is perhaps more expensive than some of the other air fresheners on the market, I have always found that fragrance-wise they have been gorgeous, and they last for ages into the bargain.
I am not usually loyal to any one particular brand of air freshener, preferring to buy what is on special offer at the time. This Glade Magnolia and Vanilla air freshener had an RRP of £1.99 but Sainsbury's had it on offer at half price. I only bought one tin (thank goodness). I usually really like the smell of vanilla but for me, this particular air freshener is too sickly sweet and the smell of the vanilla completely overrides any smell of magnolia at all.
I use it like I use any other air freshener. I gently shake the can and press the top of the can to release the spray. I always spray towards the middle of the room and slightly upwards. The smell is really very strong at first and it caught at the back of my throat. My daughter loves the small and my husband says it's "okay". Personally speaking, it's far too sweet for me though.
I usually give two good blats to a medium sized room. The first time I used this, I'd been out shopping. When I came back about two hours later I could still detect the faint smell of vanilla in the air. It certainly wasn't as strong as it had been when I had left the house but the sweet lingering smell was still able to be detected.
I have used it in most of the rooms in my house and it's my husband now who mainly uses it (after he's been to the bathroom). He's even sprayed it inside the car, which surprised me, as he's not usually a fan of air fresheners.
Longevity wise I think this spray is pretty impressive, and certainly it lasts longer than my usual Tesco or Sainsbury's air fresheners. I do still love Glade as a brand but for me this particular fragrance just isn't something I particularly like or can recommend.
Glade Aerosol Essence of Nature Magnolia & Vanilla
Apart from Yankee candles I also like to have air fresheners in spray cans around the house in various rooms. The rooms I keep these in are the kitchen, the bathrooms and the utility room which is off our front hall.
I am not brand loyal and tend to buy whatever scent takes my fancy or what ever is on special at the time. I also shop in discount stores and find bargain there. I can't remember where this one came from but as I sprayed it liberally this morning I thought I would review it.
Our house is on the market and so with a viewing at 10 am I was up at 7.30 cleaning and removing all signs of cat bedding and kitty litter into the garage as well as dusting vacuuming and then to finish off I put Yankee candle burners strategically around the house and finished off with a spray of air freshener in the rooms without burners.
I love vanilla and so I am often drawn to the scents with vanilla in them. I find it a warm welcoming smell that goes well in a kitchen as it is kind of foodie too.
This one has a lovely sweet creamy floral scent that is also quite good at covering or getting rid of stale aromas like cat beds and the miasma left behind by the kitty litter!
I really like Oust as that is great at removing stale smells but I have been pleased with this. The actual vanilla scent doesn't hand around for ages but the job of removing the less pleasant aromas has been done by then.
The Glade air fresheners are usually a bit more expensive the store branded ones but I never pay full price. At about £2.00 these are expensive but when they come on special offer they are often half that price and then far nearer the store branded ones in price. I never pay more than £1.00 for any air freshener but do like trying new ones so I always look out for a new one on special offer.
The product comes in a spray can with a yellow plastic top. As with most sprays you just press down on the button on the top to release the product. The tin is white and yellow with the Glade logo across the top.
On the can we are warned to keep out of reach of children and away from heat as it is a pressurised can. Obviously do not put this near a fire or throw it on a fire as it will explode. It can be recycled through the recycling schemes now in place in many parts of the country when empty.
I have found that all I need is a couple of sprays in most rooms and the job is done. The room smells lovely and welcoming with a sweet creamy aroma. The vanilla is very evident so those who don't like vanilla need to avoid this one. It is quite a sweet smell and I find it great for the kitchen as it counter acts lots of less pleasant smells such as the fish my step son cooks each day !
Yes I like it but there is no way I would pay full RRP for it. This is not one I will specifically look for but I am very happy with it. If I see it on special offer I would be happy to buy it again.
Thanks for reading. This review may be posted on other sites under my same username.
I normally buy Tescos own air fresheners as I find them one of the best around however a month or so ago when I was going to buy some more I noticed the Glade ones were on offer at £1 each and decided to give a couple a try for a change.
The Glade air fresheners can be bought in hardware type stores and supermarkets but unlike some other brands they never seem to appear in discount style stores, at full price they are generally about £1.90 each which compared to the 82p I usually spend is a big difference.
The product comes in a tin as you would expect, the lid on it is lemon in colour and has a press down button on the top to release the product. The rest of the tin is white at the top and fades down into lemon at the bottom, the Glade logo is across the top of the tin and it states instant freshness and long lasting fragrance. There are a couple of warnings on the tin such as keep out of reach of children and away from heat just the normal warnings with a pressurised tin.
The fragrance comes out of the tin in big bursts so a couple of squirts fragrances a big double room, the scent is meant to be magnolia and vanilla and you can smell the vanilla very strongly. Some days I find this scent too sweet and some days I love it, I think it just depends what mood I am in, the fragrance lasts an hour or so and even after the initial fragrance has disappeared there is still a sweet smell lingering.
I would say this is a pretty good air freshener however it is no better than Tesco's own so I certainly wouldn't be paying nearly double the price for it.
I like my bathroom to smell nice, and I have to say that sometimes my daughters no.2's really stink! When walking through the market some time ago I saw this canister of Glade Magnolia and Vanilla air freshener and decided to give it a go!
I bought a rather large aerosol which holds 500 ml which is a thick and long, circular shaped canister. The one I have the packaging is slightly different as it has a dark blue lid and a yellow background with dark blue lettering . The can has a nice magnolia flower on the front highlighting the essence of the aroma.
The canister is quite oddly designed, very similar to that of furniture polish as it has an open top where you press down and the air freshener is released. There is no lid or protective safety feature so I make a conscious effort to ensure this out of the reach of my very inquisitive daughter!
The Fragrance Magnolia & Vanilla consists of a really light and sweet base vanilla flavour, which reminds me of the body shop vanilla eau de toilette but a slightly watered down version. It's a really sweet scent that smells gorgeous in my bathroom and leaves a yummy lingering scent which is really warm and inviting.
The magnolia scent for me is not really noticeable at all and although this is a bit misleading I actually don't mind! I can smell a very slight lingering floral-ness but this compliments the vanilla.
The canister says it "Freshens & Fragrances" and I find that it really does hide some unpleasant smells and rejuvenates the smell in the bathroom rather than blends with the unpleasant smell creating an awful infusion of toddler poo and vanilla!
Overall I really like this air freshener and all of us in our household love it so for that I'd definitely recommend it. It only cost about £1 so it most certainly gets 5 stars from me!
Glade Aerosol Essence of Nature Magnolia & Vanilla
Our work toilets all have their own air fresheners in them (for essential reasons!) and the fragrance that is there 98% of the time is Glade's Essence of Nature Magnolia and Vanilla which is a very pleasant if not a bit too neural scent.
Glade is a household air freshener manufacturer which is a subsidiary of S. C. Johnson & Son that began production of household fragrances in 1956. Glade also produce candles, car air fresheners plug in air fresheners and carpet & room scents amongst other things.
The glade aerosol holds 300 ml of air freshener in its metal canister. It is long, thin and circular that has a flat base on which the aerosol stands. The can is coloured pale yellow and white with a nice magnolia flower on the front and fancy Glade writing. The top fifth of the canister is a plastic cap that is coloured pale yellow to match the fragrance. This cap is not meant to be taken on and off, it is protecting the aerosol tube and mechanism underneath.
To work the aerosol there is a push down tab on the plastic cap that releases the spray upwards into the air, so watch you're not about to spray it directly into your face! You should shake the can before spraying to even out the aerosol inside.
This Glade air freshener is called Magnolia & Vanilla and is part of Glades Gourmand & Spicy range of sprays which are all fragrances concocted to be sweet with hints of vanilla and spices entwined. The chief ingredient that you can smell in the spray is the base vanilla flavour, which is quite light, airy and warm smelling. It is also quite a sweet vanilla scent but not overpowering and stuffy, which is exactly the kind of balance that you want when refreshing the rooms in your house.
The magnolia scent is a lot more light and subtle than the vanilla as you would expect and brings a slight floral overtone to the air freshener. Again this is not overpowering and perhaps a bit weak compared to the vanilla.
This fragrance I would say is a bit too light and fluffy for me, however it is very pleasant all the same and does a good job of fragrancing a room for a good amount of time. I would say that this scent is lacking a bit of bite to it and could do with some of the spice that Glade suggest it has in their 'Gourmand & Spicy' range.
Overall I am more than happy to use this at work; however for my home I like something a bit more bold and fruity. For that reason I am giving it a rather bland 3 out of 5. This is available from all supermarkets and online for around the £1 mark.
~Glade Magnolia and Vanilla~
Glade is a range of air freshener sprays available for your home. There are lots of different scents available for for now I will be discussing the Magnolia and Vanilla scent.
This air freshener is presented in a tall, cream and white coloured aerosol can featuring a pretty magnolia flower on the front. The can features an in-built spray top. Glade promise 'instant freshness and long lasting fragrance'.
~Price and Availability~
A 300ml can is available from supermarkets and some local shops may stock it. It is priced between £1.00 and £1.25 depending on where you buy it from.
I find it very important to keep my home smelling pleasant and make use of various scented products in addition to cleaning my home. Whilst I favour reed diffusers and scented candles, I always have one or two air freshener sprays in my cleaning box to give my home a quick freshen up after cleaning or prior to visitors coming. It is always handy to have a spray in the kitchen or bathroom to get rid of any unpleasant aromas.
I usually opt to buy Febreze sprays as I prefer them over any others. I do only buy them when they are on offer though. Sometimes funds won't stretch to Febreze so a cheaper air freshener is purchased for my home. My local Premier shop sells the Glade air fresheners and I occasionally purchase a can of Magnolia and Vanilla as it appeals to me more than the alternative which is lavender.
The packaging has been updated a little and now looks a little nicer compared to the old style packaging. I have had a few issues with the odd can whereby the spray clogs up and refuses to work properly but this isn't always the case. When the spray top is fully functional it releases a strong mist of air freshener into the air. I wouldn't say it is as light as Febreze but it doesn't leave any wet marks on my furniture or a potential slipping hazzard on my wooden flooring.
This particular scent is nice enough. The scent is fairly strong and perhaps a little too heavy at first. The vanilla is the predominant scent and is sweet but perhaps a little more artificial than I personally like. The magnolia is very subtle but a delicate floral undertone is evident in the scent. This air freshener does a good job at refreshing my home quickly. The scent is evident and it masks any homely odours for a short while. It doesn't eliminate them like Febreze but is great as a quick refresher.
This Glade spray offers a quick boost of freshness and sweet scent around my home with very little effort on my part. The scent is no where near as nice as the Febreze scents in my opinion but this spray is a third of the price so I will let that slide. The scent starts to fade quickly and isn't noticeable after 30 minutes or so which is disappointing given the 'long lasting fragrance' claim. The actual freshness element is noticeable for a little longer after the scent has started to fade.
Overall this air freshener is worth the £1.00 but no more. It is of an 'okay' quality but nothing outstanding and not something I would opt to purchase on a regular basis. Because the scent doesn't last long, I find myself needing to top it up and therefore a can doesn't last very long in my home.
Thanks for reading :)
This is a product I have been using for quite a while now, and have re-purchased several times. Firstly I find that it is always amongst the cheaper air fresheners when I am in the supermarket, and this often influences my buying decisions! Also, I love vanilla fragrances and it isn't that often I see vanilla scented items so this also helps make my mind up! This comes in a 300ml aerosol spray can and costs around £1.
In terms of the look of this product, there is something quite old fashioned about it. With all the new, different types of air freshener around now from plug ins to things disguised as rocks that squirt at you when you walk past, this does seem like a blast from the past! And I must admit I buy this less often these days as I am sucked in by the more 'novelty' air fresheners around! But at this price, it is still one I pick up now and then.
Shake 'n' spray
This is very simple to use. You simply give it a shake, hold it up and spray. The fine mist immediately smells of vanilla, although it is tempered by the floral fragrance of the magnolia. I really like the scent of this but I can definitely imagine that some people would find it a bit sickly or sweet for their taste. However there are other versions of this spray available if you think the vanilla may not be for you! What I like about this spray is that it does cover up other odours and the fragrance lingers for a while. However, I don't think it's as nice as other air fresheners I've tried - there is something about the smell that is quite artificial and it does start to smell a little cloying after a while. As I say I have bought this several times now but I am getting to the point where I am a little bit sick of it if I am honest! I also think you need to spray more than you might with some other products.
Better sprays out there?
Overall this is a good air freshener at a very reasonable price. However, I don't think it is as good as others on the market and this old fashioned spray may get a bit left behind with the new ones being launched all the time!
A lot of people who come into my home know me too well I always have a constant stream of different candles, plug in's or room sprays floating about my house. I adore the smell of a freshly cleaned house and hate to think that one day someone will enter my house on a day in which its messy and smell horrible.
I like to keep a stock of different room spray in to make sure it always smells fresh and clean, I tend to pick up ones that are on offer in the local one stop shop or while I do my grocery shopping. I picked up 2 glade air fresheners from my local Sainsbury's store for £3. I think this is excellent value for money as I believe you can't put a price on a good smelling home.
Glade magnolia and vanilla air freshener comes in aerosol can contain 300ml and be kept out of direct sunlight. I like to keep mine in the cupboard under the sink which has a safety magnetic lock on to keep little hands away from all the cleaning products. Solvent abusive can kill instantly so best safe than sorry.
The aerosol can is quite large making it easy to hold. Direction for use is quoted on the can as "shake can well, to freshen the air, point can towards centre of the room and spray." Personally I like to go a little made with it and spray it over the entire room, I more than likely spray way to much but I like to keep my rooms well ventilated during the day and keep a nice air flow throughout the house.
The release button on the can is easy to use but does need a slight force put on to it to release the product, this is good as if small hands to get a hold of it as it give you a few extra seconds to grab it.
Please remember it keep any cleaning products away from children as it can be very dangerous.
The scent of the product is just so lovely, slightly powerful and maybe overwhelming the first few times you use it. But you soon get used to it. The vanilla is the stronger scent out of the two in my opinion, but it leaves the room very inviting and just truly yummy.
The packaging also states "this product is not recommended for use on fabric" personally I've never tried this and don't intend to.
One thing I really like about this product is it is long lasting, one aerosol can will last me around 3 weeks, and this is due to the fact that once the product is sprayed into the room its scent continues to freshen the room for a good 4-6 hours, Leaving the room smelling charming and clean for the majority of the day.
Overall I think this is a fantastic product at a reasonable price, I have even seen these in my local pound land store and are regularly on offer at the supermarkets. It has a lovely welcoming scent and lasts through the day.
I am not a big fan of air fresheners, I find them too overpowering and have never found one I particularly like the smell of so I usually end up throwing them away.
The Glade Magnolia and Vanilla one is definitely one of the better ones. Its is part of their 'Gourmand and Spicy' range. The spray comes in a tall 300ml can. The can is white with a picture of a magnolia flower and some vanilla pods on it, with a yellow top. There is no cap so the spray is ready to use. The directions are to shake well, point the can towards the centre of the room and spray. This is simple to do, by just compressing the finger shaped hole. The spray comes out as a vaporised liquid. You do need to use some force to compress the button so it is hard to just get a small amount of spray. The spray also travels quite some distance, so ensure you are not too close to any furnishings when you do spray. We have wooden floors and I do have to be careful when I have used, as a fine mist will fall on the floor, and it can become slippery.
The aroma is clean, fresh and sweet smelling and the vanilla scent is easily picked up as is the stronger of the two but there is also a floral undertone which must be the magnolia flower. Although strong I do not find the smell overpowering and it lingers pleasantly for a couple of hours afterwards, covering up any nasty odours.
The scent is also available as a candle and an essential oil plug in.
Overall I would recommend for a quick fix to get rid of odours with a light aroma which lingers afterwards. Currently available at Tesco for £1.23.
