Glade Winter Berries
Advantages: Lasts for hours
As the festive period is fast approaching I am gradually turning my home into Santa's grotto! I absolutely adore Christmas and as soon as the 1st December arrives up go my decorations! I just love getting my house all festive and despite spending a small fortune on decorations I like coming home at the end of a long day and seeing the warm lights and ornaments, just puts a smile on my face.
One thing that I've always tried to get right at Christmas is the smell and by that I mean having a warm, welcoming aroma which reminds you of Christmas and generally I find plug ins don't really work and if they do they don't last for long but an item I have turned to both last year and this is scented candles. My candle of choice currently is the Glade Winter Berries one of Glade's festive scents which tend to appear in stores around October time if not earlier!
The Glade candles which come out at Christmas have been designed to release a wonderful aroma which reminds you of Christmas. They are designed to create a wonderful, festive atmosphere in your home which happens not just about with the aroma they release but also with the colours that the candles actually come in. I specifically chose the Winter Berries variety as I liked the idea of a warm, fruity scent filling my home.
Glade's description of Winter Berries:
"Create a cosy mood indoors every day with Glade Winter Berries. Feel at home with a delicious blend of seasonal fruits and spiced scents."
The candle comes in a lovely glass holder which is circular in shape and around the outside there is a purple covering which features a Christmassy image of swirls and berries etc. When you buy the candle in store the glass holder is housed in a cardboard box which has a cut out so you can actually see the holder and the colour of the candle. The packaging is just as decorative as the candle holder, featuring an image of red winter berries and the Glade logo. There is of course information about the candle on the packaging, most importantly it advises that the candle's burning time is 30 hours.
The candle itself is a lovely deep red colour and has the candle wick directly in the middle. As soon as the candle is lit the wax slowly starts to melt and within only a few minutes you start to get a very subtle spicy aroma which has lovely fruity aftertones. Within about 15 minutes of the candle burning the aroma is a lot stronger but not too strong that it is overwhelming but it is a great warming fragrance and you can really pick out the spicy notes and the berry notes and the two combine a great aroma.
I've got the Winter Berries candle in my living room and it certainly doesn't take long until the aroma has filled the entire room which is great as it certainly lasts a good while. Together with the spicy, fruity aroma combined with all my Christmas decorations it really makes you feel quite festive, all that's missing is a mince pie! What I do like is that once you've had the candle alight for a little while and you then blow it out the same gorgeous festive fragrance does linger around for quite sometime afterwards which is certainly nice.
I've had my candle now for about a week or so and probably on average it burns for around 2 hours per night and I am certainly impressed with how much there is left so I have no doubt that it could reach the 30 hours mark if not more. Obviously if you just leave your candle continuously burning then it won't last as long. Another bonus is that once the candle has completely finished the glass holder can be reused with another candle.
Overall, I think this is a lovely fragrant candle which delivers what it promises. It comes in a lovely patterned glass holder and has a warm fragrance which fills the room with notes of winter spices and fruity berries. Personally, I really like it and would definitely recommend it for anyone wanting to make their home feel and smell a little festive!
