Product Type: Glade in Homeware
Newest Review: ... that it was time to throw it out and buy a new one. Which I did it just wasn't a Glade solid air freshener. Although it only cost me 5... more
A gel air freshener that doesn't do all that much sadly!

Advantages: Nice choice of fragrances to choose from
Disadvantages: Doesn't smell much at all
Recently I had my living room all decorated, I scrubbed the carpet, washed the curtains the whole lot. As a smoker (and my bestmate/flatmate is one too).... yet alone our visitors the room badly needed sorting out and given a face lift and it got it big time thanks to my boyfriend who is a professional painter and decorator with his own buisness! The room is now a none smoking one and the finishing touch was to get it a nice air freshener to help get rid of the paint smell and to keep it smelling sweet!
I spotted this air freshener in Asda costing 88p and I opted for one fragranced with vanilla as it is usually a rather strong scent in my opinion and one that I like too.
The Air Freshener Itself:
Well the air freshener is made from white plastic and is a tall sort of oblong shape with a wider section to the bottom of it so it can stand upright really well. It has 27 holes to the front of it and through that I can see the light yellow solid gel through them and then on the back of the air freshener there is engraved in raised white writing telling us that it is a SC Johnson product. When you first get the product it has a label that you gently peel off the front of it to keep the scent within the air freshener and therefore fresh. Mine being the vanilla fragrance one had a white and yellow label with a photograph of a flower on the front of it and I was told it was Glade Magnolia & Vanilla 'Long Lasting Freshness' and that again it was a Johnson product and the weight of it was stated which is 150g (and the only size I have ever seen this available to purchase in by the way).
The scent of this when sniffed up close is simply lovely and rather rich. It really does smell of flowers blended nicely with a soft, sensual vanilla and its sweet enough without being sickly and to me there is a hint of a coconut aroma to it...whatever the scent is it really is refreshing and nice in my opinion.
However sadly the aroma of this can only be detected by me when sniffed directly opposed to it creating fragrance in a room and for me this does nothing at all.
Add to that, that although this stands nicely enough the gel does harden over time and shrink within the container slightly, the plastic is a right dust catcher but these do retain gel in them for months upon months, just sadly it never is very fragrant at all.
Lovely fragrance but this doesn't do alot really for me or my room!
Available in all good supermarkets etc.
