Glade Winter Berries
Advantages: Smells Great, gives off a natural heat, cheap when on offer, looks nice
Disadvantages: Does not burn for the stated times
I really do love nothing more than drawing the curtains of an evening and once the boys are all in bed lighting my candles. I have currently noticed that the Glad selection have been on a half price off so took the opportunity to try some of the different scented ones. The one which I first bought was this Winter Berries one.
The candle comes in a glass holder which has a covering over which is purple and white, there is a swirl pattern on it and it really does look very pleasant. The candle inside the glass is also a dark purple colour and the wax fills about ¾ of the holder.
The scent is noticeable from the moment you pick the candle up off the shelf and you can easily smell this when placing the candle down before it has even been lit. The smell remind me of blackcurrant, it is not overly sickly like some might imagine but more of a pleasant and warming nature. The smell does intensify once the candle has been lit and for me having this placed in the front room and lit I can smell the scent in the whole of the downstairs of my house.
The wick is in the centre of the candle and is very easy to light, the burning time of the candle s good, there is a claim on the packaging that this could burn for up to 30 hours, I have not found this and I have noticed they are burning quite quickly. They don't seem to burn evenly either, I have not noticed that the candle is placed in a draft but for some reason the one side is melting quicker than the other, this can be rectified by turning the candle daily. I have had about 10 hours of burning time from this candle and it s now half way through so I would say a more reasonable time is about 20 hours per candle.
The packaging is standard and is also purple in colour. It has the Glade logo on and a snowy winter scene. There is currently a promotion on these candles which gives you the chance to win a trip to Lapland to see Santa but I have not bothered reading or entering this. The packaging is 100% recyclable as it is made from cardboard. There is some information on the candle which includes keeping this away from children and babies and also that it must only be used as directed. People who suffer from perfume sensitivities should also be careful using this product. The candles should be at least 12 cm apart if using more than one, they should not be burnt next to curtains of paper decorations.
These candles are priced at £3 each which I think is a pretty fair price but they are currently on offer in Tesco with the whole of the Glade range being half price, therefore these are £1.50 each which I think is much better value for money.
I am happy to give these scented candles a solid 4 stars. The fragrance is lovely and warming and they do bring a natural heat to a room. They also look very attractive. I have had to drop one star as they do not burn for the 30 hours as claimed and more like 20 hours. I am now off to try the other scents in this range and hope to get equally good results.
