Makes a house, a home with a wonderful fragrance
Member Name: Nickycool
Advantages: Smells lovely, cheap
Disadvantages: the lovely smell goes too quickly
As I have my own house now, I need my rooms to smell nice and clean when I haven't the chance to open the window as I've been at work all day or it's been too cold to. Also I have a lot of my partner's friends over. They seem to love leaving the seat up but also smelling out my bathroom or sometimes it's just my mum's cat using his litter tray.
My mum has always use Glade Air Fresheners. The smells of Glade reminds me of home so I decide to go into Wilkos and get some.
Glade is made by the company SC Johnson. Glade offers lots of different freshening products. In the Glade Air Fresheners, there are many different fragrances. The ones that I seen regular on the shelves in the shops are Magnolia & Vanilla, Clean Linen, Lavender, Lilly of the Valley and Refreshing Spa. On their website, there seems to be more fragrances. Apple and Spice, I've only seen it in the shops near Christmas. The others ones I've never seen them on the shelves. Maybe my Wilko don't like to stock some of these or the fragrances are meant for other countries.
At work, we also use Glade and our company sends us the industrial cans and we have Pacific Breeze and Marine, which I've also not seen in the shops. That could be due to the fact that both of the cans have been there ages and maybe they don't make those fragrances anymore.
... The price ...
When I got them in Wilkos, they were 69p each. I bought Magnolia & Vanilla and Clean Linen. I have seen them in Tesco and Adsa for around 90-£1.
The cans come in all different colours dependant on the fragrances.
Magnolia & Vanilla has a pale yellow colour. On the front of the can, there's a beautiful picture of some magnolias and vanilla pods.
Clean Linen has a powder blue top colour and has a lovely picture of clean linen and open window leading to fresh grass and the sunshine.
Both cans are the same in their layout. There's a logo that says 2 in 1 - Freshens & Fragrances. At the bottom of the can, there's the Johnson logo.
The cans are both 300ml. The ones we have at work are 500ml.
... Using the Product...
On the back of the can, it says to shake well. To freshen the air, point can towards centre of room and spray. This is product is not recommended for use on fabric.
Then there's all the usually information. For example, protect from sunlight, do not spray onto or near a naked flame etc.
So I follow the instructions. I grab the can and put my finger on the button, hold it up to the centre of the room and spray. A short gust of product is sprayed out. Looks a lot like mist and as it settles, you start to smell that wonderful fragrance.
Magnolia & Vanilla - At first, you smell the vanilla but as the spray begins to settle, you smell an undertone of Magnolia. It's not too sickly but just right.
Clean Linen - it's smell exactly like I would imagine. It smells of washed clothes in a lovely fabric conditioner.
... Length of time ...
The fragrance lingers for about an hour but it also banishes the other smells for a lot longer so even though you can't smell it, it's still doing the job.
... My thoughts...
I notice that my rooms smell a lot fresher. Sometimes, I just spray it to smell the wonderful fragrance but I do say that it definitely works in the bathroom as that's where we mainly use it. If you also get the glade plug-in in the same fragrance, your house will smell wonderful. I definitely recommend it as it works and it smells nice.
