      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great series of candles

      Glade is a brand we're probably all familiar with. It features on lots of adverts of all times of the year showing scents which go with certain seasons, such as Spiced Apple for Christmas time and Spring Showers (a fairly new product which combines pink grapefruit and woody scents).

      They offer various fragrances under the following headings: Clean, Floral, Fruity, Gourmet, Outdoor and Spicy so there's a scent for all different tastes. I tend to opt for either floral or fruity, my current favourite scent probably being Apple Cinnamon which gives off a really homely feel. The fragrances on offer usually smell exactly as you would expect which is very useful when buying and shopping online.

      A standard candle I would usually purchase comes in a thin glass jar usually with a pretty printed image along the side. These can become hot, quick and so I tend to stay away after having actually lit the candle and only move them once they've cooled down. Glade also offer Scented Oil Candles which although smelling much the same as the standard candles, work by melting into a pool of liquid and filling the room with its fragrance. One reason this variety is especially effective is that it leaves no mess behind as the entire liquid melts away, leaving behind the case to fill again with a fragrance of your choice. Another reason I like these candles is because I feel a little safer knowing the entire candle is gone so not only is there no cleaning to be done, I don't have to worry so much about any fire hazards.

      Glade candles usually cost around £3 whenever I purchase them from my local supermarket. I don't mind paying this price as I feel for the quality you get, it really is worth it. I would try to get the item on offer however if I was planning on buying a few I'd either search for a fragrance I like the sound of online or only buy on offer because of the price.

      As I have already explained there is a great deal of range in Glade candles. This reason alone is what makes them a great candle manufacturer. Even fragrances I am a little less keen on are still quite pleasant and often its more a case of knowing myself and the smells I happen to like and dislike rather than any fault of the candle. I enjoy their collections which mean that if I'm really into a certain scent I don't have to be confined to that candle alone.

      I tend to burn my candles in small increments and feel that not only does this help them to last longer but it really increases the impact of the scent. Sometimes when burning a candle for longer than this you become used to or other scents overpower the original candle, so its nice to relight and be met with the strong scent all over again. As well for safety issues this means I don't have to worry about overseeing the candle for long periods of time as I just blow them out and relight and so don't leave any unattended flames about.

      Overall I really like Glade Candles. I think despite having a huge range and bringing out new fragrances all the time they maintain the same level of quality and remain nice and consistent. This is a brand I can trust which offers so much range I know I can find a frangrance or two which are perfect for me to add a nicer dimension to my house and give it a really homely feeling.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A slightly disappointing candle - gives a lot at the start and end and very little in the middle!

        Glade Candle Spiced Apple & Cinnamon Candle

        Just before Christmas I picked up two of Glades winter collection Christmas candles marked up at £2 on a half price special offer. I didn't use to buy candles too often, which is something I am trying to rectify recently, after going to friends and families houses and smelling some lovely scents going on. The Glade Christmas candles had lots of different flavours to choose from on the shelf and I went for two of the Spiced Apple and Cinnamon candles after having a whiff of them.

        Glade

        Glade is a subsidiary of S. C. Johnson & Son and has been a manufacturer of home air fresheners since 1956, and more recently candles, car air fresheners, plugins and scented oils as the demand increased and fashions changed.

        The Candle

        The spiced apple and cinnamon candle is a limited edition fragrance from Glade immediately caught my eye on the shelf. It was a lovely Christmassy deep red colour on both the packaging and candle jar. The glass candle is enclosed in a quite thin cardboard sleeve, I truly like this packaging design as it means that you can really get a good smell of the candle inside and see which one takes your fancy there and then before you buy it.

        There is a nice picture of cinnamon and a ripe looking apple with some festive snow sprinkled on the box along with the Glade branding. The cardboard design and glass jar inside have similar design patterns on them, which is a wintery scene with snowflakes and red and gold swirls. It looks a much more expensive candle than it actually is and as I say it went really well alongside my Christmas tree.

        The candle comes in a thin glass jar that is circular shaped much like a ball with a flat base to sit on surfaces and an open top to obviously let the candle burn freely. This is a nice compact size, being about 10 cm by 10 cm diameter. The wax is filled up to half of the glass.

        The wax is a lovely deep red colour with an orange tinge to it and has a shiny smooth consistency. When you put this up to your nose (unlit of course!) you immediately smell warmth and Christmas, it's delicious, but not overpowering which is why I decided on this flavour. These are very much a winter spice mixture.

        Once you light the wick, the scent starts to blossom, I can smell the spicy apple aroma and a hint of cinnamon which go together really nicely. It smells sweet and delicious, however, the main hits that I get from this candle come when I first light it and then once I blow the wick out I get another good burst of the fragrance. The in-between burning of this candle I find quite disappointing, whether this is because I perhaps become accustomed to the smell, or it simply isn't that strong I can't decide. Having splashed out on some
        Yankee candles for my partners mother at Christmas who lit one whilst we were there I think it may be the latter explanation.

        Glade suggest burning this from between 2 to 4 hours to maximize the life of your candle, I rarely burn mine for these lengths of time and as such the wax does burn slightly unevenly, as this is quite a wide jar as well this does not help matters. Burning time: Up to 30 hours.

        Overall

        I really liked the smell of this candle in the shop and still do on burning; I just don't think it is nearly strong enough to make the most of the lovely sweet spices and as such can only give it a score of 3 Stars.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Recommended

        ~*~ The Purchase ~*~

        I absolutely love scented candles so I decided to buy a few of these to try after seeing that they were half price in my local Tesco's.

        ~*~ Price ~*~

        Each candle has a recommended retail price of £4.00, but as I said above I managed to get all of mine half price which I'm really pleased with and I would quite happily pay the full RRP when it comes to buying some more due to how long each candle lasts.

        ~*~ Availability ~*~

        These candles are really widely available and they can be found in Wilkinson's, discount stores and a majority of supermarkets.

        ~*~ Fragrance ~*~

        There are absolutely heaps of different fragrances available. There's the usual fresh & fruity scents as well as some foody and spicy scents. I currently have three different fragrances which are:

        ~ Magnolia & Vanilla
        ~ Spiced Apple
        ~ Warm Orange & Spice

        All of the fragrances smell absolutely gorgeous and surprisingly natural - I can't wait to try out some of the other ones and there's even a chocolate & honey fragrance available, which sounds amazing!

        There is a fragrance to suit everyone and I like that they have different candles for different seasons, eg light and fresh scents for the summer months and spicy, warm scents for the winter months.

        I actually had the spiced apple scent burning over the Christmas period and it made the house smell really warm and cosy. Even though we burnt it almost every night for a solid week, there's still quite a bit of wax left and the smell is just as strong which for a relatively cheap candle is really impressive in my opinion!

        ~*~ Candle Design ~*~

        All of my Glade candles are in glass containers/jars which are round and quite chunky, however I am aware that tumbler versions are also available. Each jar is designed to reflect the fragrance, for example my spiced apple one has got a red and white colour scheme with a Christmassy design.

        I love that they come in the glass jars as it makes them seem a lot more expensive than they actually are and the jars can be reused. I also like that once the candle has burnt down a little the flame from the candle really lights up the jar so it looks gorgeous on my mantle piece.

        ~*~ My Opinion ~*~

        I'd seen these candles around a few times but never bothered buying any because I assumed that they'd smell overpowering and like air freshener due to the brand name and I also assumed that they'd be quite pricey due to the expensive looking packaging.

        After seeing that they were half price in Tesco though I had a quick sniff of one and was pleasantly surprised by how nice the smell was. I ended up buying three to try and I will definitely be buying some more when I next see them as they are incredibly good value for money, even at the full price of £4.00 - they last for ages!

        The first thing I like about them would have to be the pretty packaging and the fact that the packaging (a round glass jar) can be reused for a variety of things makes it even better value for money! I also like that although the fragrances aren't overpowering, they're strong enough to quickly get rid of any cooking smells and my home smells almost instantly fresher.

        We have an open plan living room and dining room which is pretty big and it takes just a few minutes for the smell to completely fill the room. Each of the candles that I have has got a decent sized wick and I've never had any problems with lighting them. The wick does flake quite a bit when it's burning meaning that little black 'crumbs' are often on the wax, but as the candle is jarred this is unnoticeable and I am never able to smell a burning scent or anything while it is lit.

        When I blow the candle out there is quite a bit of smoke and a slight burning scent, but this soon fades. As for the lasting power of the fragrance, it's really good. I usually burn one of these for 3-4 hours each evening while me and my partner relax and the smell is still slightly detectable for a good hour or so even once I've blown it out.

        I only burn these down stairs, but if I need to pop upstairs to get something or get changed while one is burning the scent is very noticeable upstairs too so it really spreads throughout the house. The manufacturers state that each candle has a burn time of around 30 hours, which I would say is accurate as the one that I am currently burning has been burnt almost everyday for over a week for a few hours each time and there's still a small amount of wax left.

        ~*~ Overall ~*~

        Highly recommended.

        Disadvantages

        Glade candles

        Glade candles are a great inexpensive way of fragrancing and decorating your home and bringing a bit of warmth to your living space. I have used a number of these candles over the years and have always liked the way they work and set the scene and make my house feel lovely and homely. I think they are good quality candles, they are not as well made or as fabulous as Yankee Candles in my opinion but then they are much cheaper than these too so they are a great way of decorating with candles without breaking the bank.

        Glade produces a number of different candles in different patterned glass holders. They contain specially blended fragrance oils to provide a wide range of modern fragrances.  The glass jar that the candles come in is not too big, it would fit in your palms if you hold your hands together. The glass is fairly thin so you do need to be quite delicate with these glasses. 

        What I like about the decoration on the outside of the glass is that it is in keeping with the fragrance of the candle. For example the lovely glistening snow candle has a really Christmassy look to it. The glass jar is a wonderful powdery blue and white colour with pictures of snowflakes on it. It is lovely and ice crisp looking and perfect if you are going for a winter wonderland kind of look. All the other smells and fragrances follow this type of design pattern and I think it's a really nice touch. 

        I think it's always a good idea to put these candles on some sort of mat when you light them and not straight on the surface you choose such as a table, or mantlepiece as the bottom does get rather hot if you leave it for a while. Also, do not burn it without being in attendance as although they are fairly safe and will not fall over it is best never to leave a naked flame. The candles will burn for up to 30 hours so it will last a long time. The candles sell for about £2 in places like Wilkinsons and are a great addition to your home decorating.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Good air fresheners

        These candles normally retail for around the £4 mark so when i spotted that Tesco had a 2 for £5 offer on I bought four different types, my favourite of the four is the Relazing Zen which ahs a really nice floral smell to it with an oriental spicey twist that is very relaxing and quite intoxicating. I also got two of the Island Breeze type because I had used these before and really liked the fresh tropical aroma that they have, also they are fantsatically bright with lots of layers of coloured wax which makes them look really nice before they get used.

        The other variety that I got was Pomegranate and Cranberries and while the smell is nice on this one I have been a little disappointed that it is not a very strong smell and does not last as long as the other varieties that I habe bought and I would not go for this variety again.

        I find that each candle will last three to four evenings of about six hours burning time each evening which I find to be pretty impressive for a candle that does not look that big in the glass pot. The candle wax has a nice smooth texture in all three of them and the wick is nice and long meaning they are easy to light.

        With the exception of the cranberry one they are usually very strong smelling and they certainly infuse and freshen up the room that they are in and the smell does tend to linger. They are slow burning hence the reason they last a nice long time and also this allows the fragrance to work its way around the room.

        These are well worth the money in my opinion and are often on special offer so it pays to stock up when the opportunity arises. There are also a wide range of candles and they are always bringing out new fragrances especially at certain times of the year.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        MMMM they smell goood! defintely would buy more.

        I brought loads of these candles when they were on offer last year, probably brought in the region of twelve when they were on offer at £1 each approximately £4 at full price. I am not massively keen on candles as I have a small child but we live in a flat and the kitchen can get a little pongy after a good curry so I brought them for this reason.

        The product:
        The candles come in a bulb shaped glass that is decorated differently according to which scent you purchase, they are about 2/3 full. They claim to have approximately 30hours of burning. I have never timed this but would say it is pretty accurate.

        I personally like 'with love' and 'spiced apple' with love is a rosey smell it is light to the nose and we do not find it too over powering. Spiced apple is a lovely smell in the winter and around christmas it is again a light smell and we do not find it over powering. We tend to have the window open slightly when we have candles on to keep the room ventilated.

        Glade sell a lot of different scents and I have tried a lot of them. I have liked them all and have not found one I would never buy again.

        Positive:
        They last a long time, 30 hours at approximately 2hours a day gives me 2weeks per candle which was about right as they have lasted six months so far.
        They smell nice and are not overpowering.

        Negatives:
        When blowing them out you end up having a horrible blown out candle smell. have not found a way to blow them out without this.
        At full price they are pricey!

        Summary:
        I have given them four stars due to the full price of them being a little pricey.
        I do Love them and would recommend them

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Not recommended

        I like having candles in the house especially in the winter as I think the added flames of the canld emakes it feel warmer in the house. I bought a couple of the glade candles from Asda when i found them on the reduced section at £1 each.

        Glade candles are usually about £4 in price for each one which to bed honest I probably wouldn't pay but if you wait longer enough they do go on offers making them much better value. The Glade range has about 8 different fragrances and each candle is a colour to match the fragrance and is housed in a small glass pot with decorations around the sides.

        The glade candles come in a box when you buy them but the front of the box is open at one side on the front to allow you to smell the canlde before you buy it. The box isn't sealed in any way so it is easy to get the candle out of it.

        The candles fill about 3/4 of the glass pot and the wick is long enough that you can light it easily at least to begin with, the candles that I have tried have all smelt nice and haven't been too overpowering but the smell seems to go after a couple of uses which I was disappointed in. As you use the candle the wick tends to get harder to light and because of the candle being in a small glass pot to put you hand in the small area with a lighter you often get burnt and I have found the further down you get you end up having to turn the candle upseide down to light it safely.

        The candles don't burn very well as they don't burnn through the whole area and end up with a hole brunt through the middle of the candle and then it gives up and you still have loads of unmelted wax.

        I wouldn't recommend these candles, they don't burn well, the smell is lost quickly and they are hard to light after the first few uses, the glass pots are pretty but I still won't buy them again. *

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Would recommend 5/5

        Before I take this review any further, I will admit my addiction right now, candles are my weakness. Every night, soon as it starts to get dark, i get my collection out along with a box o matches and light the babies up. I am currently strugeling with a condition called post traumatc stress, some of you might of heared about it before. My Doctor told me I need to try and relax a bit more, to try and find a routie that works for me, along with some medication I should soon start to see the benifets. So as you can imagine, after trying the candles I have found that they do help me relaz, so much so, that I have turned into the candle lady. I use them in my livingroom when I come home from the school run, in the bathroom when I have my night time bath, in the kitchen for a romantic meal mood, and in the bedroom to well... you know. Make me get sleepy for bed time, bet you were thinking something else there. (naughty,naughty) As you can imagine I hava quite a few so you will probably see a few more reviews from me in on candles in the future.

        This current one that I am doing the review on today is by glade (see pic) You normally find that Glade candles are on special offer from time to time but it has been known to find them in the pound shop. Im not sure how much mine cost as it was a present from my mother but I have done some research and you can get them from ASDA for nomally \'a34 but on roll back at the moment for \'a32. It has to be said, I love a bargain I mean doesn't everyone? Thats a saving of \'a32 or if like me you can help yourself two for the price of one (wink.)

        I like the range of scents that Glade has to offer and they seem to match the weather seasons rather well. The candles are well presented in a beautifully decorative glass jar.Each fragrance has different designs, which not only does it make it easiler to pick out in the shops if you decide that you want another one but also for a change, no one likes to look at the same thing all the time, unless it is your boyfriend that is and your stuck with him.They come in a variety of different scents and titles. I have found a few different ones that are available to purchuse. Winter berries ,spiced Apples, glistening snow, with love, enchanting night, honey and chocolate.

        Out of the seven listed above I have used three of them, so I am going to give you my opinion on the ones that I have tried.
        With Love ~ This is one of my favourates, it was a present from my Mother. It comes in a pink coloured jar with gold and red love hearts. The candle itself is a very light pink colour. The smell is a floral scent, I am not usually keen on floral smells but it reminds me of, you know when you get a big bouquet of flowers? It's just think that fresh sweet smell of flowers with a mixture of jasmine and a hint of fruit. I think that Glade has put the hearts on the glas of the candle as it is quite a romantic scent. The strong is nice and airs the full room nicely unlike some of the other candles that I have tried in the past.
        Glistening Snow ~ As the title gives it away, this is more of a christmas one. In comes in a blue festive, snowy, icy looking jar. The candle is a deep turquoise colour. The smell is a fresh festive scent, best way I can describe it is fresh cut tree needles and speuce, blended with berries, cinnamon and a hint of orange. This candle also filled the room with its scent which was plesents and very much the christmas candle spirit.
        Spiced Apple ~ Comes in a reddy pink coloured jar with decorative swirls around it, the candle itself is a dark red colour. the scent is really quite delicious and smells very festive. It has a blend of winter spices with cinnamon and juicy apple. I found this to have a strong scent that lingered very well and lasted well even after the flame had been put out.


        Out of all the candles that I have, Glade candles are in my top 5. I like that fact the secents do last and linger for a while even after the flame has been put out. Although the candles look smaller than some, don't be fulled, the have appoxamatly 30 hours of burning time. I would rate this product a five out of five. I hope that my review was on some use to you, thank you for taking the time to read it.\par

          Disadvantages

          A lovely ornament and fragranced candle in one!

          Available in most supermarkets and shops selling household products are these lovely candles from Glade. Priced at £3.50 in asda they stock 7 different fragrances so there is a scent to suit anybodys taste. Whether you want a subtle fragrance such as relaxing zen or something a bit more exotic like brazilian mango flower.

          I have had the love and pink boudoir fragrances and loved them. The love one is quite a soft perfumed fragrance where as the boudoir one is a more intense deep fruity type of smell. Neither of these are sickly smelling but still strong enough to fragrance your home with beautiful scents. I actually often burn both together and find they compliment each other. The glass holders the candles come in are really pretty, enough so to be ornaments as well as a fresh fragrance for your home. The container is full of the candle so its set in the glass.

          The candles last a long time and look lovely when lit with the light glowing through the coloured glass. Creates a cosy homely feel to any room. The candle can be awkward to light as it gets lower to the bottom but this would be a common problem. Watch depending on the length of time you use them for the glass can become hot

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Give then a try while they are half price

          On my last trip to Tesco I noticed Glade Scented Candles were half price. Always a sucker for a scented candle and a bargain I bought a couple. Glade do a wide range of scented candles. Some of their new winter collection are:-

          Winter Berries
          Apple Cinnamon
          French Vanilla
          Sugarplum Fantasies
          Peppermint Crush
          Baked Magic
          Chocolate Cherry Sparkle
          Bayberry Spice And Everything Nice.

          The candles come in a round glass container which is approximately 3 inches high and is filled with 2 inches of wax. Each one is covered with a pretty patterned plastic coating.
          The candles are all sold in a cardboard sleeve with just a corner of the glass container showing so you can see the pattern, colour of the wax and give it a quick smell.
          Their recommended price is £3.00 but as I said they are currently being sold in Tesco for £1.50 so if you haven't tried them now would be a good time to do so. Or may be stock up for Christmas for yourself or for small gifts.

          The Glade Candle I am currently burning is from their new winter range and is called Winter Berries. It has a very pretty purple shaded plastic coating round the glass with dark purple and gold swirly patterns. The wax inside is a lovely shade of dark purple / pink.

          The Winter Berries fragrance is a mix of winter berries and spices. It has a very sweet fruity fragrance and although you can detect cinnamon when you smell the unlit wax it seems to disappear when lit. However the fragrance when lit does smell quite strong and the sweet fruity smell soon creeps round my whole house, even upstairs, and it lasts well after the candle has been blown out.

          Glade states that their scented candles burn for up to 30 hours. I'm glad they put "up to" 30 hours because I find this is greatly over exaggerated. The burning time depends on how the wax actually burns down. If it doesn't burn down evenly you wont get as many hours out of your candle. I do find this happens sometimes with Glade Candles. However if I am left with any unburnt wax I chip it out and melt it in my burner.

          I would recommend the Glade Scented Candles and at half price they are an excellent buy, however I am deducting 1 star from them because of how the wax sometimes burns un evenly.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A great range that will have something for everyone.

            I've always loved candles, they're perfect for heat, ambience, decoration and best of all distributing a gorgeous scent throughout the room.

            I currently have 3 in my house each with a different smell. There are a variety of scents and coloured glass jars. Each candle lasts roughly 30 hours it says, I think it depends the length of time you burn it at each point but I think they do last a decent amount of time.

            These candles are normally £3 each which isn't bad for what you get although I always like to stock up when they're on offer at half price £1.50.

            With Love has a decorated pink sleeve over the glass jar and a pink candle. It has a feminine girly smell. Definately one to have decorated in the bedroom.

            Enchanted Night has a really strange smell, it's a bit like a mans aftershave but it's lovely none the less. It's decorated in a deep blue and white sleeve and is in my opinion a good one to have in the winter.

            My most favourite however and the one I purchased yesterday is the chocolate and honey. The sleeve is a goldy, orangey colour with white on the bottom and the candle itself is an orange colour. It has a sweet smell although it doesn't smell how you imagine it will by the definition. This candle i have in the living room and whilst burning it last night it definately travelled and made most of the house smell gorgeous!

            Even if you don't like candles give them a job of decoration in your house.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A great way of inviting a fresh new scent into your home.

            Coming up to this time of the year when the night are darker and longer and you just feel like cosying up, I like to have candles lit around the room.
            I have found that the Glade scented candles are usually on offer around this time too, and I just think that if you are going to have candles lit you might as well use scented ones!

            I like the range of scents Glade offer and they seem to match the seasons perfectly.

            These candles come in pretty decorative glass jars so can double as an ornament too. Depending on the fragrance you choose the design on the jar will be different.

            They come in a variety of different scents and just by checking the Asda and Tesco websites I have found a few available now ~~

            Winter Berries
            Spiced Apples
            Glistening Snow
            With Love
            Enchanting Night
            Honey and Chocolate
            Relaxing Zen

            Out of the seven listed above I have tried four so I will give my opinions on those.
            Spiced Apple ~
            Comes in a reddy pink coloured jar with decorative swirls around it, the candle itself is a dark red colour. the scent is truly delicious and smells very festive. It has a blend of winter spices with cinnamon and juicy apple.
            I found this to have a strong scent that lingered very well and lasted well even after the flame had been put out.

            Glistening Snow ~
            Comes in a blue festive, snowy, icy looking jar and the candle itself is a deep turquoise colour, this again has a very festive scent but not a warming scent like the Spiced Apple, it is very fresh smelling. It is scented with the aromas of fresh cut needle and spruce, blended with berries, cinnamon and orange peel.

            Enchanting Night ~
            Comes in a mystical starry look jar, I can't remember the colour of this candle! It has a very floral scent but not over-powering in any sense. It gives your home a mystic scent.

            With Love ~
            This comes in a pink coloured jar, scattered with the outline of gold and red love hearts. This candle is a pinky colour. It's scent is quite floral, but nice. I don't really like floral scents but this is a gentle nice scent. Described as a floral bouquet of Jasmine with fruity notes. It's a nice scent and unlike the first two isn't festive at all, in fact it's quite a romantic scent.

            Another nice thing about these candles is that after the approximate 30 hours of burning time, you can use the jars to store little bits and pieces, I have 2 jars on my dressing table with earrings in one and hair clips in the other!!

            Like I just mentioned they have approx 30 hours of burning time, so they do last well, and the scent do last and linger for a while after the flame actually being outed.

            Prices ~~~~

            Usually found at around £3 each. They are currently on offer in Asda £3 each or 2 for £3, or simply buy one get one free in Tesco £3.
            If you want to try a few now's the best time to do it whilst they are on offer.

            Disadvantages

            A different but effective approach to domestic fragrances

            Glade candles are presented in very attractive packaging, both external and internal. Whilst some air fresheners can be unsightly, these can double up as an ornamental addition to any home. It's range of scents are non exhaustive but offer a nice variety. My weapon of choice is the spiced apple, which gives a warming aroma to the entirety of my living room. The candle claims it will last for 30 hours - so far so good in that respect, although the wax seems to be somewhat untouched at the sides. Genuinely surpirsed at how effective the product is at filling a room with an effective fragrance, but also at how the fragrances seem to have been designed and engineered with the goal of being able to relax anyone with prolonged exposure to it. All in all, I am very impressed with this product, and will certainly be trying the other fragrances in this range.

            A scented candle that smells like its suppost to.

            I like my house to smell nice and I love scented candles. The glade ones are my favourite unfortunatley my favourite ones are the apple spice cinamon smelling ones which only ever seem to be available around christmas as limited addition, the same happens with febreze air freshners. So each christmas I have to stock up on them.

            The candles come in many scents including clean linen I quite like this one too as an alternative to my christmas candle. They also come in a variety of fruity scents and outdoor smells I think the phrase would be i.e. fresh mountain morning.Also cooking smells like creamy custard and blushing apple. There is a wide variety and special addition ones for the seasons.

            The candle holder is glass so I don't have to have a special heat proof mat to burn it on. Each glass container is different my apple cinamon smelling one has a dark and light red film on the glass which I like, the candle looks smart to have out. Within 15 minutes of lighting the candle the scent is released into the air as the wax melts and it fills my whole room which is just what I want from scented candles, some i have chose in the past just smell like burning but these are great.

            You are advised not to burn the candles for more than 4 hours in a row which I don't tend to do more for the fact that I want it to last longer than anything. The candles vary in price depending on where you get them from and what offers are on at the time they cost around £2.50+ in most supermarkets but shop around for a bargain.

            Scented candles I recommend to everyone.

              Disadvantages

              A useful, if not ideal alternative to sprays

              For the those of you who would rather avoid the synthetic fragrances of sprays Glade offer an interesting alternative in their scented candles.

              Scents

              Glade have producteed a wide range of fragrances to suit all tastes, these include:-
              - Apple Cinnamon
              - French Vanilla
              - Angel Whisper
              - Clean Linen
              - Lavender Meadow
              - Melon Burst
              - Strawberries & Cream
              - Mountain Berry
              - Rainshower
              - Refreshing Spa
              - Fresh Mountain Morning
              - Pumpkin Pie
              - Glistening Snow

              Of these option Apple Cinammon is a particular favourite especiialy at chrismas time as the rich cinammon smell smells very authentic. Rainshower is also a very refreshing scent that smells like a spring morning. What is a nice feature of the fragrances is that there does appear to be a variety of opions to suit different moods and time of year.

              Disadvantages

              Lastability is a problem here as I have found the candles to be very inconsistent as to how long they are effective. For example, periodically burning an Apple Cinammon candles did seem to last for a number of days whereas I have tried other before that have lasted less than half that time. At around £3.00 per candles is durability issue means that arguably you are not getting the value for money that you would with a spray, even though in my view the quality of the candle is superior.
