I do like candles and especially round Christmas/winter time.
A lot of the Glade candles are on half price offer at Sainsburys right now so it seems a great time to buy them.
PRODUCT AND PACKAGING...
This candle is sold in a cardboard sleeve, with all the information on the back of the sleeve. When I take out the candle, the candle jar is coloured in a cream colour with swirls and flowers almost etched on in decoration. The candle itself is a very pale green colour, nothing spectacular. It always seems a shame afterwards to let the jar go to waste so I always get these types of jars refilled.
The instructions tell me to trim the wick to 5mm but I hadn't read the instructions before lighting it, and it didn't have any adverse effects by not trimming the wick. When I light the candle it lets off a nice glow through the painted glass, although it does take some time for the smell to be discernible. The information on the candle sleeve tells me that this is a contemporary mix of delicate white flowers and soft notes of watery fruits for a calm relaxing moment. For the aroma to really fill the room, it's best to burn the candle for 2-4 hours, as suggested in the instructions.
There are certain warnings such as keep the candle away from children, don't move while the candle is lit, and warns that this is for indoor use only.
The candle is made by SC Johnson, and there is lots of information on the website, www.glade.com. It seems there is a candle for almost every occasion. This cost me £1.50 from Sainsbury but the RRP is £3.
I do as suggested and tend to burn the candle for about three hours at a time and definitely for no longer than 4 hours. It has already lasted 5 days of this type of burning and there is I believe a few days left.
The candle lights easily and unlike some candles does burn right to the bottom of the jar. I hate it when there is a lot of the wax wasted around the edges or when the wick disappears and has to be gauged out of the wax to light. It lets off a very subtle scent and is one which could be burnt all year long. Not sure if I feel relaxed but the smell is nice although not as strong as some of the other candles I have burnt. The smell is pleasant enough but unlike some of the other Glade candles, not really strong enough to eliminate odours. In fact, I have to get quite close to the candle to be able to smell it.
Nice enough but for a candle with real scent try another.
Thanks for reading.
