More like public lavatory than relaxing zen

Disadvantages: Overly flowery old fashioned smell, didn't last long
I bought a Glade solid for my bathroom when it was on offer in the supermarket but I disliked it so much that I wish I hadn't bothered to be honest. They are only £1 normally but it was on offer for half price so was only 50p. I thought at that price it was worth trying.
The air freshener comes in a white plastic container and it isn't very subtle and is difficult to hide out of the way. You need to remove a cardboard covering so that the gel can release its fragrance. The gel looks like jelly and it reminded me of one that my nana used to have when I was a kid.
The fragrance was supposed to be a relaxing zen but I found nothing relaxing or zen like about it. In fact it smelt really flowery and old fashioned and it reminded me a bit of a nice public toilet. For the first couple of days I found the smell to be quite pungent and overpowering and was grateful to get out of the bathroom away from it.
I actually nearly decided to bin it but luckily the smell faded somewhat after a couple of days and it wasn't quite as offensive as it had been. It still wasn't the nicest of smells but I could live with it as it was only in the bathroom.
Just when I was starting to deal with the fragrance it had almost all but disappeared. Even up close most of the fragrance was gone and the gel had turned in to a hard clumpy mess inside. Obviously this meant 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 50p I still expected better from Glade and this just wasn't good enough in my books. The smell was pretty nasty and nothing like the description made it sound like and the fact that it only lasted a couple of weeks before needing thrown out was pitiful.
If you like the smell of public toilets then buy this but if not then spend just a few pence more and get something that smells a lot better and lasts a lot longer.
Summary: Cheap isn't always a good thing
