Glade Aerosol Magnolia and Vanilla
Advantages: It was on offer at the time, impressive longevity
Disadvantages: Too much of a sweet vanilla smell
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.
Summary: Not aone I shall be buying again
