Glade Enchanting Night candle
This lovely little glass jar containing the scented candle from Glade was one I bought just before Christmas as I thought it looked so pretty and as they were on special offer I popped a couple into my trolley in Tesco. They were on special at £1.50 each. I do have quite a collection of candles bought and ones I have got as gifts but I still thought these were worth buying as you can never have too many candles in my view. I always think scented candles are more necessary in winter when the windows tend not to be open and we are inside more.
The candle is in a small rounded glass jar without a lid. The jar came with a cardboard outer but luckily you could still smell the candle as the cardboard outer didn't cover the entire candle. I tried smelling them all and came away with this and two others.
The jar is a strong blue colour with a swirly pattern and a few stars on the plastic sleeve. The jar itself is clear and it is only this shrink wrap sleeve that is colored quite a strong blue colour. The swirls and stars decorating the outside of the jar do look quite attractive and certainly wouldn't look out of place in a sitting room or bedroom. If you are in to candles in the bathroom then it would look fine in there too.
The actual candle is weighs 120g. On the front of the cardboard outer is a blue sky with snowy looking stars and the colours are pale blue to darker blue to white and the picture is more on the bottom half. I am also informed that the candle will last up to 30 hours but I think they are quite safe in claiming that as I cannot imagine anyone timing a candle burn but maybe I am wrong. I am not going to bother as I have far too many other things to do in my life!
I lit this several times over the last few weeks and I usually have it has been burning for about 4 hours in the dining room in a corridor and so every time I pass it I can enjoy the smell. It has an almost perfume sort of smell. Quite strong and as though someone wearing perfume has just walked past you, or you have sprayed a perfume and walked under it.
I loved the subtle and quite exotic smell of this one and found it quite light and fresh but it certainly wouldn't bowl you over in a larger room. As I said it is like walking past wearing perfume that you can't quite put your finger on the scent. Glade candles have been quite good I have found in the past and this was one of the nice ones. The smell is quite exotic and romantic and really very grown up. I think the name is supposed to conjure images of a fresh winter night but it makes me think of a night with ladies all wearing perfumes and you coming into the room to join them.
How this candle is scented is not divulged on the pack but I am warned that
"Air fresheners do not replace good hygiene practices".
So bummer I will have to continue cleaning the house and washing my clothes and having baths. What an amazing surprise. Who do they write these instructions for? Or should I ask "Who thinks of this sort of rubbish to write on packs?" I am honestly almost struck dumb with amazement at things I read on some packs.
Anyway this candle is not full of natural essential oils and natural ingredients which is probably why it doesn't smell that natural or that strong. It does contain octabenzone, 2-(4-tert-butybenzyl|) propionaldehyde, coumarin. Now doesn't that really tempt you? Apparently this may cause an allergic reaction. I am now wondering why I allowed this to jump into my trolley as it sounds more like a bomb than a scented candle.
Curiosity has got the better of me and I have discovered that octabenzone, is used to protect polymers against damage by UV light. Then the next ingredient propionaldehyde "is a colourless liquid with a slightly irritating, fruity odour".Then finally coumarin "is a compound that smells like vanilla. "It is usually derived from the tonka bean but can be obtained from other plants. Ha ! so we were right that is where the vanilla smell comes from. No mention of any connection with honey or chocolate at all so no wonder it doesn't smell of either.
Well the candle has burned about four hours and I keep going out to walk past it and it really does lift me as I sniff walking past. I imagine that I am walking into a room full of smartly dressed ladies wearing perfume.
I can say however that if you were depending on this to cover yucky smells then it might well have trouble as it is not a very strong aroma.
I would suggest that you couldn't have this one burning during a meal as the smell is quite perfume like and would be odd with a meal. It might be better to have burning in the lounge as people arrive or even in the front hall to welcome people with a lovely smell as they arrive.. I'm not sure though that any scented candle would add much to a meal so save them for the relaxing area of the house to move into after you have enjoyed your meal. This would be nice and fresh exotic candle to burn in a bedroom, so long as you remember to blow it out before falling asleep. It would also be a nice one in a bathroom to lie back and enjoy a candlelit bath.
As I said this candle was on special at £1.50 but I am not sure that I would pay the full £3.00 price as I don't really feel it is that good and I have found a Yankee tart would do a better job and last just as long if you bought two which would be the same price .
The other thing that annoys me with these Glade candles is that they only burn in the middle and after the wick has died you are left with a lot of scented candle wax around the edges of the jar. I have discovered that once you get the wax out ( stick the jar in the freezer for about five minutes) then I use thios wax as a wax tart and bur it in my burners and this works really well.
I also take the plastic wrapper off the jar and wash it all out and I keep these for using with night lights or the little wax candles that you put under the burners and in the jars when you have a few of them they look really nice. They look even better if you put coloured and scented ones in there or indeed you can put the led ones in too.
I also use the jars for putting pot pouri or dried flowers like rose heads in as they look really pretty. At the moment mine are filled with lavender from my garden which gives a lovely scent and they look nice in sets of three in the bedroom. I get my rose heads from the garden or from bouquet I have bought and as the flowers are getting to the end of their life as cut flowers in a vase I cut the heads off really close to the head and then put them on our wood burning stove on the top and they dry really well keeping their shape and a lot of their colour too.
So in short I would recommend this candle but it isn't the best I have ever had It looks pretty and burns with a pleasant fragrance but not one that is really strong. Don't forget to get the remaining wax out and use as a wax tart and re-cycle the jar into something creative or just re-cycle it with glass as usual.
Thanks for reading and hope this has been of some interest to you. This review may be posted on other sites under my same user name.
I like nothing more than ensuring my home is clean & fresh smelling and one of the ways that this is achieved in our home is by lighting candles, particularly if we have friends round in the evening or if my partner has been smoking inside our home. I love everything about candles and will happily buy endless amounts of candles, half of which it takes me ages to get round to lighting let alone burning down. I ended up buying this Glade 'Enchanting Night' candle for £1.75 when it was on a two for one offer in store at Tesco a little while back, therefore I brought two and they worked out at £1.75 each.
First impression of this candle was that it had a lovely floral scent and smelled like it was going to be deliciously scented when it was burning. The candle comes provided in a glass container, which is very tastefully decorated. It has a lovely blue colour to it with lots of little decorative stars on it and it does have an enchanting night look about it which just adds to the affect of the candle in my opinion. I've been using one of these candles in the bathroom at night and as I like quite a few candles this does add some extra ambience to my lazy relaxing baths. It's a very pretty design and one that looks nice when not in use also which means I've just been leaving it around the edge of the bath and lighting it when I'm having some relaxing time to myself.
I feel that the fragrance of this candle is quite light, floral and oriental without being too overpowering. The scent reminds me a little of an air freshener that I have been using recently that I have thoroughly enjoyed the smell of. The fragrance is quite strong but it's not overpowering, it's just light enough to scent the air but strong enough that I can notice it from the instant I light the wick. The scent lasts for a long time and while I usually burn this candle for about 1-2 hours at a time while relaxing in the bath the scent is prevalent for that whole time. It's not usual that I would purchase a cheaper candle such as this one as I don't normally like the quality of this type of candle, however, this candle has been absolutely fantastic.
The burn time is advertised as being around 30 hours for this candle but as I am lighting it for shorter periods of time than it advises for best results I have probably received around 23-25 hours of burn time from time. This is absolutely fantastic for the price paid and the fragrance is long lasting and keeps going right until the end of the wick.
The only downside to this candle is that the glass jar gets incredibly hot and there has been more than one occasion now where I've burnt my toe on this in the bath. It's for this reason that I'd recommend using this on a candle plate if you are going to put it on surfaces that may get damaged from the heat of the glass jar, as I've been doing at the side of the bath.
I have been very pleased with the scent of this candle as well as the burn time and I would not hesitate to buy this again if I found it on special offer like I did in Tesco. If you are looking for a relaxing scent for your bath time then why not give this one a try?
The Glade Enchanting Night Candle is a candle which I have bought a couple of times. I bought my last one from Tesco's for £3.47 - which I do feel is fairly expensive for a mass produced candle of this type, but I have still bought it a few times because I quite like it - and on one occasion at least, it was on a two for one offer.
The candle comes within a contoured glass jar - infact it fits the glass jar. The glass jar itself itself is tastefully decorated. The main body of the candle glass is a deep but warm blue, and then it is decorated with bursts of white, yellow and orange stars that are placed in random constellations around the jar and then a moon to complete the whole night design. Its a cute design that would be suitable for everywhere, but I do admit that I think it is most suitable for the bedroom or for in the bathroom when lounging in the bath before bed. When the jar is lit up with the candle, it really adds warmth to the room and helps to create a cosy atmosphere.
The wax is a light shade of orange with the wick in the centre of the candle. The manufacturers do recommend that the candle is burnt for at least 2 - 4 hours at a time in order to get the maximum burn time as this ensures that the wax melts horizontally across the whole candle rather than just to burn downwards along the wick. As I said, this ensures maximum burn time. I do always find it a bit annoying when you have to have the candle burning for a prolonged period of time in order to get the maximum burn time.....because more often than not, I don't want to have the candle burning for prolonged periods because I don't like to leave it unattended if I was going out - or in this case, going to sleep. If used as recommended, the burn time is expected to be around 30 hours, but as I don't burn it as recommended, I would estimate that the burn time is only about 20 hours.
The aroma of the candle is very pleasant - and again, I feel it adds warmth and depth to the room. The aroma is spicy and exotic, but unlike other candles with an oriental fragrance, it is not overpowering and is quite subtle and relaxing. I actually found it similar to the perfume Opium (which is one of my favourites) although it is not as strong a fragrance as that.
Something to be aware of is the fact that once the candle has been burning for more than about thirty minutes, the glass jar gets very hot - and on more than one occasion, I have burnt my fingers when I've moved the jar.
Overall, I do like this product because I like the jar design and I like the fragrance. However, it is not without its faults in terms of the burn time being significantly less than the 30 hours that is advertised, and the fact that the glass gets so incredibly hot.
I love candles and have tons of holders scattered around my house so I can create the perfect romantic or haunting lighting effects. I particularly like fragranced candles as they create a lovely atmosphere, especially during the evenings when you want to feel all cosy. I saw this range of Glade scented candles advertised over Christmas time and picked up a few in various scents. This Enchanted Night scented candle is available from many high street retailers and I bought mine from Wilkinsons for £1.47, which is a good saving at just half the RRP.
Product description: "A warm blend of oriental and floral tones to create a mystical atmosphere in your home."
The item comes packaged in a decorative cardboard sleeve, and the different candles seem to each have their own colour packaging so you can easily tell the different scents apart from one another. This one is rather ambiguous judging it by the name, so I was unsure of what to expect the fragrance to be like. These candles come in their own rounded glass holders, which have a printed image on the outside. This one has a nice blue and white starry background with a swirling floral scroll design around the edge. This fits in well with the time that it was released, and still looks pretty the rest of the year round. The candle itself is made of an amber coloured wax.
I wasn't really sure of what I could expect from the candle based on the information on the box and the way in which it was presented. As the candle was burning it quickly released a lovely fragrance which was much different to the other Glade candles that I've had previously. The other fragrances were very strong and clear, mainly fruity with strong lead notes. This Enchanting Night Candle was simply gorgeous and had a hypnotic scent that was really warm and sensual. This is a beautiful fragrance that is far more sophisticated than any other air freshener candles that I have tried before. Although it is part of the Christmas range it was not overly festive, and I've still been using it these past few weeks as it creates a lovely atmosphere during the evenings. It has a nice warm scent to it and the combination of oriental floral scents are blended really well. This is something that I could see appealing to most people as it is a wonderful fragrance that is delicious and romantic - I can't believe that this is a simple air freshener candle! It really is a high quality item with a fabulous fragrance that I can't get enough of.
These candles are well filled, weighing in at 120g, and claim to give at least 30 hours of burning time. I must say that this has lived up to my expectations, if not surpassed them. You really do get a lot of use from them and the candle burns down slowly but effectively. Because I find the scent to be strong and effective I only leave it burning for an hour or two at most and this leaves the room heavily fragranced. It is very effective at boosting the mood and freshening up your rooms. After the candle has completely burned out you are left with a pretty holder which can then be re-used. Sadly there was a bit of waste leftover from this candle, as when the wick burned down it seemed to burn away wax more on one side of the holder than the other. In my experience this seems to be common within this range of candles. There is still quite a bit of wax left in the holder and I will be salvaging that to melt together with my candle making kit to really get the most out of it and avoid throwing anything away.
I would definitely buy Glade scented candles again as they are great value for money, produce a wonderful effect and look lovely too. This particular fragrance is incredible and I would definitely buy it again as well, as looking forward to trying the others that I have in this range.
Since treating myself at Christmas, and due to the fact that I knew the price of these would soon go back up to normal/full price, I have been on a mission to by and try all the different scented candles within the "Glade" range, hence this review.
The candle in question is - "Glade - enchanting night scented candle".
This particular candle comes within it's own, and in my humble opinion, amazingly garish looking glass bowl, coloured deep blue to symbolise the night time aspect, but with a peach coloured candle within, that looks even brighter when actually lit!
The box states that this candles scent is a mixture of oriental and floral scents, to create a mystical atmosphere, and after sniffing I too concur that it is quite oriental in scent, though not as strong as I would have hoped, as this usually means the scent when lit is almost none existent.
To use you have to make sure the wick is trimmed, which stops smoking, and place on a heat resistant area or tray, I usually place mine on a fireplace, and find this is the best, though not (as my husband did last time) directly in front of the fire when on, as the candle dissolves quicker than the wick can melt it, which defeats the point!
You do have to give the candle a little while after lighting for the scent to appear, as obviously the melting of the wax is what releases he essential oils within, though I left mine burning for ages, and I honestly smelt nothing, very disappointing!
This did look lovely when lit though, adding a certain atmosphere, especially when in a dark room, giving off a soft light, so in that respect it was nice, but due to the lack of scent I could have safely purchased a much cheaper candle that had no scent in at all!
Price wise (thankfully!), I only paid £1.50, though they are now back up to there full price of £3.49 in Asda, where I purchased this from.
For atmosphere this is a nice candle, for what it was brought for, not!
Thanks for reading x
I've always liked scented candles but they usually cos me between £10 and £15 each so I didn't buy them all that often. I was browsing in semichem when I noticed that they were selling glade candles for £1.99. I had really never given them much notice before as I thought they wee solely from freshening air and not really in the same league as the one's that I usually bought. I stopped and had a sniff out of curiosity and immediately I was struck with how lovely the smell was and completely not what I was expecting.
The candle was called enchanting night and it even had a gorgeous glass container that was decorated the colour of the sky with what I would describe as sunbursts. Anyway I thought it was really pretty and I bought it.
Once home and out of the box I could see the lovely glass container was in fact just decorated on the outside with plastic sheeting and looked dare I say it a little cheap. But as I had bought it for the smell this didn't matter and it still looked lovely from a distance.
The scent is extremely floral smelling and I think I can smell vanilla in it. Glade say it has oriental tones which I'm not really sure what that means but I suppose I could imagine this smell in some far off land as it does smell quite exotic.
I was surprised with how much scent the candle gave off and within half an hour of lighting it I could smell the scent throughout my whole bedroom.
Usually when I pay nearly £10 for a candle I don't like to burn it for too long but because this was so cheap I didn't mind leaving it on for a couple of hours at a time.
I also liked the fact that the container didn't become burning hot whilst the candle was lit as inevitably I always had to move it for some reason or another.
Glad says that the candle will burn for 30 hours and whilst I didn't time the length of time I had it burning I am pretty sure it was nowhere near 30 hours worth. I would estimate that 15-20 hours would be more apt.
For £1.99 even that length of time isn't bad and I found it to be a perfectly acceptable time for the money but they really shouldn't state such wildely exagerated claims.
Enchanting night really is a lovely smelling candle and it really relaxed me and made my house smell wonderful and would be the perfect smell to accompany a hot bath after a long day. For the money it is fantastic value and whilst I haven't been able to get another one as everytime I have went bck in for one they have none as soon as I spot them again I shall be stocking up.
We love candles in our house, especially in the winter months, I can have up to twenty on the go in the living room at one time! I love the cosy glow they give on a cold wintery night. I have a mixture of candles, all different sizes, most of these arn't fragranced so when I saw this Glade 'Enchanting Night' candle I loved the smell and so bought it to scent the living room.
Today I spotted that the Glade candle range were on offer at £1.50 in my local Asda so I couldn't resist adding one to the trolley. I think £1.50 is a fair price for this candle but I think the normal retail price of £3 is a bit too steep for my budget. At the moment they do seem to be half-price in other shops and supermarkets right now, as I have also spotted them at this price in Wilkinsons.
The candle shown in the product picture above is actually last years design. The new design is blue and white in colour with a picture of stars and a moon which suits the product name 'Enchanting Night' very well. The glass jar is very attractive and does catch your eye in the shops, I still have mine from last year, when the candle had burnt out I just add tea lights to it.
The wax inside the jar is a warm yellow/orange shade and fills two thirds of the jar. Once lit, the glow from the candle lights up the sides of the jar with an orange glow. It looks very cosy and draws your attention to it when it glows nicely in the living room.
The scent of the candle is difficult to describe, but Glade describe the Enchanting Night candle is a warm blend of oriental and floral tones, which is probably a good description. All I know is that it is a lovely scent which is much stronger than your average scented candle. You can smell it very strongly before it is lit which is a good indication of whether you like the scent before you buy! I smelt them all in the shop and this seemed like the strongest scent and also the nicest in my opinion.
The glass container doesn't get too hot to touch whilst the candle it lit so this is quite reassuring I think.
Glade say that the burn time for this range of candles is 30 hours, but I'd say it was more like 20-25.
I think this scent is a lovely wintery scent and it a good price at £1.50. I would buy another at this price but not for the normal retail price of £3. Next time your in a supermarket, look out for these and see if you can get a scent you love.
I'd give these 4 Dooyoo stars, thank you for reading
I recently purchased two candles from the Glade range after reading very positive reviews. Previously I had always been put off by the price of these but when I heard they were on offer at Tesco I took the opportunity to try them myself. There are quite a few fragrances to choose from within the Glade range, but eventually, Enchanting Night was one of the fragrances I settled on.
Having a nice fragrance throughout the house is important to me and usually I rely on plug-in air fresheners, usually also from the Glade range and I was uncertain about how effective these scented candles would be as I have tried many in the past and was usually disappointed with the results.
Glade is part of SC Johnson, which is a name that is widely known when it comes to products for the home.
The packaging across this range of scented candles is absolutely beautiful. Each 120g candle sits in it's own glass jar with a different design. The packaging has recently been redesigned so this product now looks a little different from what can be seen in the picture above. The cardboard sleeve is now sporting a simple design depicting a starry night sky with a moon and a shooting star. The design is mainly dark blue in colour with streaks of purple and pink. The glass jar is dark blue at the top which fades into white at the base, and elegant blue swirls and stars add decoration. The packaging now definitely has a more simplistic, modern design but I actually prefer the original design in this case.
The wax of the candle is a peachy rich yellow colour and smells divine when inhaled directly from the jar. The scent is described as a warm blend of oriental and floral tones to create a mystical atmosphere in your home. I would say that this describes the fragrance well and to me, this is a warm, sweet scent, which is delicate, pretty and deliciously inviting.
Of course, it is advised to be cautious when lighting the candle. I tilt the candle slightly and use a lighter. The wick needs to be trimmed before use, and lights very quickly when exposed to the flame. When the candle has been burning for a little while, the smells begins to waft around the room and smells lovely. It is not overpowering or sickly like some fragrances can be, instead this offers a delicate aroma which is a pleasure to take in. When the candle is lit, the yellow colour of the wax can be seen through the white part of the jar offering a warm and cosy glow. When in use, the jar becomes quite warm but not too hot to touch. I would advise against moving the candle around when in use as the wax turns to liquid and is very hot.
These candles are said to deliver 30hrs of burning time. I have not yet finished the candle so I cannot comment on this, but I have been using this now for the last few days for a few hours at a time and I still have over half of the candle left.
As I mentioned previously, these are now half price at Tesco and are reduced from £3.00 to £1.50. I am uncetain how long this offer will be available for, but I will definitely be picking a few more of these up if I get the chance. I will say that I would not be happy paying £3.00 for one of these as I really don't think they are worth that amount of money.
Overall I am quite happy with this product. Not only are they decorative they smell great too.

I love candles and go through quite a lot of them, especially in the winter months when it's cold and dark outside, as I love the cosy touch they add to the room.
Scented candles are my preference, as not only are you getting a cosy glow, you have the added bonus of a lovely fragrance too. Whether it is a tea-light to use in my oil burner with scented oil, a scented votive or candle in a jar, I always have one burning each evening.
So when I spotted the Glade scented candle range half-price at my local Asda, I bought a couple. I must point out that they do seem to be half-price (£1.50) in other shops and supermarkets right now, as I have also spotted them at this price in both Morrisons and Wilkinsons.
It wasn't only the price that attracted me to these candles, I was also really drawn to the attractive glass jars and equally attractive box. Glade seem to have updated these candles very recently as my Enchanting Night candle is not exactly the same as the product photograph shown here. The photograph shows how this candle used to look until very recently.
Whilst the Enchanting Night candle is still housed in a predominantly royal blue jar and box, both the jar and box is now only royal blue and white. A white full moon and stars set against a royal blue sky is I feel, a big improvement from a design perspective, as it certainly conjours up images of an 'Enchanting Night', with dark skies lit up with the moon and the stars which look like snowflakes.
So a big thumbs up from me for this new updated design, which certainly makes the candle look more appealing in my opinion.
The wax inside the jar is a warm yellow-orange shade and fills two-thirds of the jar. Once lit, the glow from the candle lights up the sides of the jar with an orange glow. It looks very cosy indeed.
The scent of the candle is one which I find difficult to describe, but Glade state that the Enchanting Night candle is a warm blend of oriental and floral tones, which is probably an apt description. It definitely has a musky scent and also I am reminded a little of a Jasmine candle I once had. The scent is quite strong and was really evident before I lit the candle.
As it began to burn, the scent became stronger and having used a couple of the other Glade scented candles in the range before, I can honestly say I think this is the strongest smelling fragrance I have experienced so far from Glade. The other ones I have tried were not as fragrant as this one and took a few minutes once lit before any fragrance was noticeable. With Enchanting Night, however, the fragrance was noticeable almost immediately and also seems to linger for quite a while after the candle is extinguished.
Moving the candle about once lit is possible as the jar doesn't become too hot while the candle is burning, although for safety reasons I would advise against moving the candle when lit or whilst the wax is still hot and in liquid form.
Glade state these candles offer 30 hours burn time, but I have always found the burn time falls short of that, with 25 hours being the maximum burn time I have achieved from one of these candles.
I really like the Enchanting Night candle and have bought another one whilst they are only £1.50. I am not sure what an Enchanting Night is supposed to smell like, but the fragrance here is lovely. It's musky scent ideal for winter nights and Christmas. This would be an ideal candle to use over the Christmas period for both the scent and the attractive winter packaging adds a little touch of cosy luxury on these dark cold nights.
