      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Thanks for Reading :)

      ==PRICE & AVAILABILITY ==


      I purchased this from my local Asda supermarket for around £3, but I am sure that it will be on offer from time to time, just need to keep a look out. They are available to buy from most Supermarkets, I know sometimes Home Bargains can have these on offer for around £2 so its worth to pop in one of the stores if you have one local.


      ==PACKAGING==


      The candle comes enclosed in a cardboard packaging. The packaging itself is decorated with blue and white colour scheme with some hints of orange, green and yellow for a festive feel. The Glades logo is clearly visible on the front of the cardboard packaging with images of Christmas tree, and a swirl of an orange peel. |The candle wax is a pleasant green minty colour, and the candles themselves come in glass made holders that are circular shaped.

      It has a nice snow flake design printed on the exterior of the glass holder, which matches the glistening snow name of the candle well, also making it visibly more recognisable to tell the type of candle without looking a the font print. When the candle is lit the design and print on the glasses glisten nicely, which gives it a beautiful effect.


      ==HOW DOES IT SMELL==


      When the candle is lit, the scent is really nice. I could instantly pick up on the pine fragrance which added a nice festive feel during those cold dark winter days. I could also catch onto the cinnamon and orange scents quite well, which kicked slowly but invitingly. The berry scent was the weakest of the lot, it was still noticeable but not as much as I would have liked. The combination of these scents in my opinion mix really well, giving the nose senses a beautiful adventure of fragrances that beautifully set the mood during the late night evening cuddling up on the sofa to a nice cup of hot chocolate.

      The candle lets off the scents slowly, taking its time too fill the room with the aromas. Some might complain about this, but I personally liked that I got to enjoy the build up of the different mixture of scents.


      ==DOES IT LAST LONG?==

      The candles can last a very impressive 20-25 hours, which shows that the candle are really long lasting and are money worth spending. They burn slowly, hence lasting for long periods of time. It fills the room up with long lasting fragrance even after burning for only 30 minutes, leaving the room with a nice festive feeling.


      ==CONCLUSION==

      Overall I would recommend these candles; they are beautifully designed and pleasantly fragranced. You basically get what you paid for, a long lasting quality candle. A great advantage is that you get to re-use the glass holder after the candle has melted, so for the price you get a reusable glass holder too!!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A beautiful, long-lasting candle with a great design.

        I have bought the Glade Glistening Snow candle every winter for a few years. It is one of my favourite Glade candles. They have updated the design of the packaging, the box is now a darker green than the picture provided, about the same colour as the candle. The glass holder is also a darker colour, with a band of the same green as the candle at the top, which is decorated with silver stars and white snowflakes, and below the glass is designed with swirls and snowflakes. It is very pretty and a great addition to your Christmas decorations.

        The beauty of this candle is that it lasts ages. I have found that the scent of the candle welcomes me when I get up in the morning, even when I've blown it out hours before. The candle only needs to be lit for about twenty minutes or so for a few hours of scent.

        The box says that the candle is scented with "fresh-cut needle and spruce blended with notes of berries, cinnamon and orange peel" which I feel is quite a good description. The clean scent of the tree-type ingredients is the predominant smell in this candle, with the cinnamon providing a warm undertone that makes the candle perfect for Christmas

        I feel that Glade candles are rather pricey, but they are very often on offer. I bought two of these candles from Morrisons for £4, which is a good price as they are often about £3 each. But because they are very strongly scented, and they last ages (the box says that each candle provides 30 hours of burn time, but as you only need to have them lit for a short time, this means that the candles can last a long time) I think that they are worth the higher price.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I won't buy these again

        I'm sure by now most of you that read my reviews have realised I like candles, I think they are not only practicable but they can also provide a lovely smell, heat source and a romantic atmosphere. I bought this candle in about March time this year when Asda suddenly decided to sell them off which of course would be because they are of a Christmas design but this didn't bother me.

        This style of Glade candle is usually about £4 so considering I pay £1 each I think I got a real bargain but to be honest I would have been disappointed if I had paid full price for them. You can buy Glade candles in supermarkets and hardware stores and of course like everything else these days on line too.

        The candle came in a small cardboard box which had a small section cut out at the front where the candle protruded so you could smell the candle before purchase. You are told on the packaging which also has a wintery look to it that the candle will burn for 30 hours which I will dispute and then you are given the usual warnings you get with candles such as not leaving them unattended.

        The candles comes in a rounded glass and the glass is decorated in pale blue and white with a lovely wintery scene of snowflakes and pine cones covered in snow which looks really pretty. The candle inside comes about 2/3rds of the way up the glass and then there is a nice long wick so that you can light it easily although I found it easier hold the lighter the correct way up and then place the candle upside down over the flame to light it.

        The candles have quite a strong smell of pine to it but the smell isn't quite so strong once it is burning and there was also a smell of cinnamon in it too, the smell drifts around the room pretty quickly and it lasts well too, I was able to still smell the candles the following morning after using these candles. I was a little disappointed to find that the smell of the candles disappeared once it was about half way down and then it was really just an unscented candle.

        The candles were easy to light the first couple of times that they were lit but this became a problem after that as the wick got smaller and smaller and I ended up burning myself to light the candles on more than one occasion. I ended up having to put the candles in the bin when they had about a quarter left as I simply couldn't light them anymore which was a little annoying as you don't expect this with a more expensive decent name.

        After my experience with these candles I wouldn't really recommend the Glade candles at all as I presume that they will all have the same issues. I only give this 3 stars as what is the point of a scented candle whose scent doesn't last the burning life or the point in a candle that cannot be burnt after you get so far down.

        It makes you feel Christmasy all over again!

        I got the Glistening Snow Candle when I saw the Glade candles on a buy one get 2 free offer in Tesco. What a bargain....I just couldn't resist.

        The Glade candles comes in plastic holders that are decorated with designs appropriate to the fragrance. The Glistening Snow design is white snowflakes one a crisp ice blue background. The wax itself is a dark blue colour and even before it is lit you can smell the fragrance already. It is the design if the candles that first drew me in. They are compact and such pretty designs they add character to your home.

        I have purchased a few where when I got home and taken them out of the packaging they holder has been cracked which is quite sharp. I think because the plastic is so thin it does break easily and a stronger design may be worth looking into.

        The Glistening Snow is said to contain "spice freshness of of just cut pine wood, mingling with notes of red fruits, cinnamon and orange peel" - Glade. You can easily pick up on the pine and Orange Peel notes, and the cinnamon emits a sense of Christmas! Its a great mixture of scents that when lit easily fill the whole lounge with aroma's. The candle will last for around 30 hours in total which for the price of between £3 and £3.50 is a lot. With the Tesco offer I got an amazing 3 for £3.49 so was great value. I have seen then cheap in Home Bargains for around £2.80 and they are often on offer in one of the main supermarkets at any one time.

        One of the nicer pine fragranced candles Ive smelt

        I only ever buy Glade candles when they are on offer as I think some of them just are not worth the full asking price. Just before Christmas my local Tesco had them on a buy 1 get 2 free offer and at that price I bought some. Although in my Tesco they didn't have much choice of fragrances. One I picked up was called Glistening Snow, very suitable for the time of year.

        Glade Candles are sold in a nice little round glass jar with a plastic wrap tightly around it, this is inside a cardboard sleeve, in the case of Glistening Snow the sleeve is decorated with pine cones covered in snow and a little bundle of cinnamon sticks, all wintery and festive as you would expect. On the top it informs the customer that this candle will burn for up to 30 hours. I find with Glade candles this tends to be a bit optimistic but they do give you a good few hours of fragrance. The cardboard sleeve on these candles always has one corner cut away so you can have a quick sniff before you buy. A good idea in my opinion.

        The bottom of the packaging gives a few warnings in picture form which are standard for this type of product and really boil down to common sense. The bottom also describes the fragrance of Glistening Snow,

        "enjoy the spiced freshness of fresh cut needle and spruce blended with notes of berries, cinnamon and orange peel"

        The little glass jar measures approximately 3 x 3 inches and the plastic wrap around this one is a mint green and white colour with a green and silver snowflake design on it. Its very pretty and looks nice when the candle is lit.

        Now personally I'm not keen on pine smells they remind me of public loos but Glistening Snow is lovely, the dark green wax has the most gorgeous fresh smell. There is a hint of pine but this is spiced up and sweetened by the cinnamon and orange peel. Its quite a strong smell but lovely for over the festive period.

        The smell is strong enough to filter around my home fragrancing all downstairs and upstairs too. In my opinion Glistening Snow is a day time fragrance, I wouldn't light it in the evenings. Its more of a fresh fragrance rather than a warm cosy one, however it does give my home a nice clean smell but not in a public loo way if you know what I mean! The fragrance lasted for quite a while after the candle was blown out too.

        All on all I would recommend trying Glistening Snow, but not at full price, Tesco currently have these for £4.00 which in my opinion is too expensive, wait until they have an offer. I have found Glade candles very hit and miss as to how evenly the wax melts down. With some of them its very uneven and you get a lot left at the end, and although I sometimes use this in a burner I'm sure you don't get the full value from the candle.

        Glistening Snow is certainly one of the better pine fragranced candles I have smelt.

        A festive scented candle for cosy winter nights from Glade that may be snowy but not cold!

        Summer without doubt is my favourite season and I struggle with the dark mornings and dark nights but I do like the build up to Christmas and find myself more likely to find myself in my dressing gown snuggled up on the sofa rather than doing something productive around the house like I do in the summer. Both Mr Lools and I are big children at heart and get very excited when Christmas things start appearing in the shops. As the dark nights set in we both tend to find ourselves lighting candles and are really keen on scented candles especially though with warm, cosy festive type scents. The Glade Festive range of candles are firm favourites and one of our favoured scents is the Glade Glistening Snow Candle.


        ***Glade Glistening Snow Candle***
        The Glade Glistening Snow Candle is described as "infusing light, warmth and scent into every room in your home. The Glistening Snow candle is a mixture of scents including fresh snow, freshly cut pine needles and warm berries cinnamon and orange peel".

        The Glistening Snow Candle is part of the Glade "Festive" range of scented candles from the JC Johnson brand. The candle comes in a circular glass jar which has a slightly wider base than rim so is a slight bulb shape. The jar is about 5cm in diameter and 6cm high. The candle jar is clear glass but is frosted with a white silver and turquoise snowflake design. Inside the jar is the candle which is a deep turquoise coloured wax.

        The candle comes in a square cardboard sleeve which is easily removed before use.

        According to the packaging the candle has over 30 hours of burning time.

        The usual selling price of these candles is £4.00. I think this is quite expensive and tend not to purchase at full price. Asda currently have all of the candles in the Glade Festive range on special offer and I stocked up as they were priced at £2.00. Discount stores such as Wilkinson's and B&M's tend to sell these candles cheaper at around the £2.50 mark.


        ***My Experience***
        We tend to burn scented candles only on an evening. This is mainly when we spend the most time in our living areas and secondly it is when our children have gone to bed. For safety reasons I tend not to light candles when my 21 month old children are around so obviously with this candle the same safety implications apply as they do with other candles. I also do not leave the candle to burn unsupervised and I tend to light it in an open area away from curtains. As the candle burns it has a lovely glow and the frosted design of the jar is very pretty. I prefer the design on this candle to the others as the red candles in my opinion look too Christmas decoration like. This is fine in December but if you start using these candles from October like we do they just look a little odd.

        Lighting the candle initially is very easy. Glade states to optimise burning to trim the wick. I tend to use a lighter to light the candle which is easy to do when the wick is near the top of the jar. However once the wax has burnt down past half way in the jar I struggle to fit my hand and lighter far enough into the jar to reach the wick as the top of the jar is narrow. I now use a longer match as I with my lighter method I suffered too many burnt fingers. Those with a candle lighter should have no issues. Extinguishing the flame is very easy but I do find the wick glows for around 1 minute after it has gone out. Because I go to bed straight after the candle gets put out I tend to wait until I know the candle has definitely gone out because on one occasion the candle lit up again but luckily I was still watching to ensure it had gone out completely.

        I always burn the candle on a candle plate because I put it on a very expensive oak cabinet to burn so I do not want to take an risks that it would mark the wood. Although the glass jar does heat up at the sides so you can burn your fingers if you touch the base of the jar does not get as hot. Mr Lools did put one of these candles onto a wooden side table without a coaster and it did not leave a mark but I personally just do not like to risk it.

        Glade states the candle has a 30 hour burning life and I would say we got around 26-28 hours out of the ones that we purchased. We would light the candle around 7pm on an evening and extinguish around 11pm when we went to bed. I find the candles usually last a week before I have to put it in the bin.

        What I like about the Glade candles is that they burn evenly. The wax burns so that you do not end up with a concave in the middle of the candle and wax is left up the side of the jar. As it burns down this makes it easier to light. I find cheaper candles are more difficult to light once they have gone past the half-way point as there is so much wax left on the side of the jar.

        What I like most about the Glistening Snow Candle is the scent. In my opinion there is an outdoor type scent which is of pine needles but this is not too strong and alpine like in a toilet cleaner way as it is very subtle. The other scents mixed with the pine needles add warmth as there is an orange peel and spicy cinnamon type scent. I find this is similar to when a Christmas cake starts cooking giving a very warm homely feel.

        Neither Mr Lools nor I smoke and we do not allow others to smoke in our house but we do cook an evening meal on an evening. Because of the design of our home it is pretty much open plan and we have a living room/ dining room which then leads to a large separate kitchen however we cook with the kitchen door open so cooking scents spread into the living area. I would not describe cooking scents as unpleasant but I do not like these scents to linger especially the following morning when you walk downstairs. I find that not many air fresheners get rid of some scents especially garlic or if something has been fried. If we light the Glistening Snow candle on an evening and allow it to burn for 2 hours the scent after only around 30 minutes has completely gone. What I particularly like about this candle is the following morning when I get up and go into the living room where we have been burning the candle the room still has the scent which is very warm inviting and very festive as it has a slight spicy yet fruity type scent. The cooking smells from the night before cannot be smelt even if we did cook something strong.


        ***Overall***
        From the Glade Festive range the Glistening Snow candle is definitely one of my favourites. The rounded jar glass the candle is held in is pretty and is festive themed with its turquoise and white snowflake decoration but is not too festive so it does not look like a Christmas decoration. When lit the candle gives a room a warm cosy glow and a lovely warm sweet welcoming scent that has a touch of freshness. If you burn on an evening the following morning the room will still have a lovely scent.

        When on special offer the candle is an excellent purchase and costing only £2.00 with a 30 hour burn time I think this is a good value scented candle.

        My only criticisms of this candle from Glade is the price (at full price) as I think at £4.00 this is excessive especially if you consider some of the IKEA TINDRA range of scented candles have quite similar scents but cost of £1.50. My second criticism is that once the candle has burnt down past half way you need a long taper or match or candle lighter to light the candle. Because of the shape of the jar being slightly narrow at the top it is difficult to get the flame of a standard lighter close enough to the wick and I end up with burnt fingers!

        Despite burning my fingers the long lasting warm welcoming winter scent has made the Glade Glistening Snow candle a welcomed feature in our home and the scent gives anything but a cold and frosty reception.

          Glade Glistening Snow Candle

          Glade Candles

          One of my favourite things to have around the house are candles and especially at Christmas time when everything is warm and cosy and dark, candles just make the room seem more special and festive. One of my favourite candles at Christmas time is the Glistening snow candle. Just the name itself conjours up thoughts of a lovely snowy Christmas with the white stuff all over the ground and glistening outside your window.

          Glade produces a number of different candles in different patterned glass holders. They contain specially blended fragrance oils to provide a wide range of modern fragrances. Glad describe this candle as having the, "fragrance of snow, the spiced freshness of fresh-cut needle and spruce blended with berries, cinnamon and orange peel." Firstly what I love about this candle is the look. The candle comes in a decorative glass jar and as it is a Christmas candle it is almost an ornament in itself. You can use this to decorate your house and make it seem more Christmassy as it has a really festive look. The glass jar is a wonderful powdery blue and white colour with pictures of snowflakes on it. It is lovely and ice crisp looking and perfect if you are going for a winter wonderland kind of look.

          The smell as mentioned above is really beautiful and goes with the scent of the season very well. The main smell for me is the cinnamon which I absolutely love. It is quite a strong smell so if you don't like this smell I would not recommend this candle, however if you do then you will love the lovely warm, spicy smell that this candle gives off. I can also smell the fresh cut needles as well as I think this candle gives off something of a natural piney smell as well. I generally don't light these candles very often, I find just having in the room over the Christmas period is enough to bring the smell of the candle out and letting it permeate the whole room. When I do light it the smell is even more potent and the candle jar itself glows as it burns which gives an extra element to the candle.

          I recommend putting this candle on some sort of mat when you do light it and not straight on the surface you choose such as a table, mantlepiece as the bottom does get rather hot if you leave it for a while. Also, do not burn it without being in attendance as although they are fairly safe and will not fall over it is best never to leave a naked flame. The candle will burn for up to 30 hours so it will last a long time. The candles sell for about £2 in places like Wilkinsons and are a great addition to your home decorating.

            A lovely candle.

            As there seemed to be an ongoing offer on all scented Glade candles before Christmas in my local Asda, I have found that I seem to have collected quite a pile of said candles, I don't always register what is being put into my trolley!

            I have purchased fragranced candles in the past, but have always found them a bit wanting in the scent department, but due to my house always being full of children, pets and unfortunately two adults that smoke (though of course outside the back door!), there are always a great many scents flying around that are not necessarily horrible, but nothing that would suffer with a bit of freshening up!

            After a perusal of the candles whilst shopping, I found myself drawn to a beautiful looking "festive" candle, with this one being called "glistening snow", but this not only looked beautiful, it was only half packaged in a cardboard box, so the candle was accessible to have a quick sniff before buying, though of course this doesn't always guarantee it will be as scented once lit!

            There is plenty of information to be found on the cardboard sleeve, this is as a mentioned before a "Glade" product (part of the JC Johnson brand), with me having no problems in the past with this brand.
            Alongside this there is a scent description of the candle, with this being the scent of fresh snow, with the scent of fresh-cut needle and spruce, notes of berries, cinnamon and orange peel, now I had a vague idea of this particular blend of scents (due to me already having a quick sniff!), but it of course depends a lot on how the scents mingle once the wick is lit and whether it will be strong enough to permeate through my front room, which is my highest volume area, and the one I have guest in.

            Once home (and buying I am afraid, more than one candle from the range!), I remove from the cardboard sleeve ad place on my fire place, which is where I keep all of my candles, this is due in one instance because it is my central focal point, making my room look lovely, but also because it has a fire proof hearth, meaning any over heating of the glass dish the candle comes in will do no damage.

            The candle itself comes within it's own glass bowl, with the dish looking quite festive on it's own, being a beautiful jade colour complete with delicate swirling snowflakes to compete the look.

            The candle is the same shade of green, which is duplicated throughout the candle dish, and even the picture on the box itself, this is think is to refer to the pine element of the scent, though in fairness it is just pretty to look at.

            To use you make sure the wick is trimmed a little (if it is too long it can start smoking and this in itself will taint the smell a little, though I would imaging the fire alarms going off would ruin the relaxed feeling a bit more!), then light, though be warned it will take a good 20 minutes for the wax to melt and warm through enough for the scent to start being detectable.

            After this time the scent suddenly develops, with the scent of the pine being fresh, though not at all over powering and toilet like ( I was actually a little worried that it would smell like the pine scented cleaner my mum would use down her toilet when I was a kid, fresh yes, but at that level of strength not relaxing!), the pine mingles beautifully with the spicy cinnamon scent, with the orange peel almost offering spiky warmth, this really was quite the nicest scent I have tried so far in these candles, and tough is aimed towards the festive period I would quite happily use this throughout the year.

            Alongside the scents, the sight of lighted candles offers a lovely relaxing ambience, there is nothing more relaxing than getting to sit in a dimmed lighted room, with the flames of said candles flickering, I have to say after all the last minute shopping I had to do and of course the parties I attended over the new year, these worked really well at helping myself and my husband sufficiently relaxed, though of course the booze helped too.

            These are stated as having a 30 hour burn time, though I have lit these at dusk and found they have lasted me around 3-4 evenings of burn (around 20 hours), at which that point (and especially if your wax is down to around ½" in the bottom of the bowl), I found the candle burned and tarnished the top of the glass bowl, leaving it black and unsightly, I do actually throw them away at that point as they look unsightly which in my opinion defeats the point!

            There are the obvious safety aspects to keep in mind, especially if you are like me and have young children in the house.
            These should never be left unattended with a chi in the immediate area, my son has never ever tried to touch or move the candle when lit, but does has a real thing about trying to sniff it, especially when lit, the times I have had to rescue him from losing part of his fringe or eyebrows!

            Another is to really careful and mindful of where the candle is placed or what it is paced upon, obviously if you are like me and you have a fire retardant surface in front of s fire this is ideal, but it states it shouldn't be placed on highly polished surfaces, this I assume is due to how hot the glass bowl gets after burning for some time.

            The same care should be taken if placing in a window (on a dish of course!) especially if there are curtains and nets around.

            To purchase these they are now retailing for around the £3.00-£4.00 mark, with there being a real plethora of scents available to buy, though always be on the lookout for offers, I managed to snag a whole hoard of these at £1.50 a time.

            These are a lovely addition to the look, ambience and of course the scent of my house, and would have no problem buying this again.

            Thanks for reading x

              Disadvantages

              A strongly scented candle that is good value for money, just not to my taste

              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 cold winter months 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 Glistening Snow 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: "With the fragrance of Glistening Snow, enjoy the spiced freshness of fresh-cut needle and spruce blended with notes of berries, cinnamon and orange peel. Let yourself escape into a festive spirit!"

              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. These candles come in their own rounded glass holders, which have a printed image on the outside. This one has a lovely snowflake design in a minty green colour, which is perfect for the winter season and fits in with the Christmas theme of "Glistening Snow". The candle itself is made of a deep green coloured wax that nicely matches the pine needles.

              I wasn't sure what to expect from the name Glistening Snow, but after reading the scent description I thought it sounded lovely and festive and that it would be suitable for using through winter for a seasonal fragrance. Once I had lit the candle for the first time I quickly discovered that this does not match my personal tastes. The pine element totally overpowered the other aspects of the fragrance and as hard as I tried I could not pick out any other scents. This is a shame as if the berry, orange and cinnamon scents had come through I think it would have balanced out and made a nicer overall fragrance. In my opinion it smelled like pine scented bathroom cleaner!

              These candles are well filled 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 so strong I only leave it burning for an hour or so 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.

              I would definitely buy Glade scented candles again as they are great value for money. Sadly this fragrance was not for me and I will stick with the sweeter scents in the range.

              Perfect for a cold winters evening!

              I have just reviewed the Glade Spiced Apple candle which without doubt is my favourite candle, but this Glistening Snow candle comes quite close.

              I bought this candle from a supermarket at the same time I bought the Spiced Apple candle. This was the first time buying this scent, but I wanted to try a new one. I always smell the candle in the shop, and this candle smelt so lovely, a more relaxed scent compared to the spiced apple, but still has a perfect Christmas scent.

              The candle is packaged like all the other Glade Christmas scent candles, in a cardboard box with the candle on display in one corner.
              The candle itself consists of a beautifully decorated glass jar, with the wax inside. The glass is decorated in blue and white with faded snowflakes, which light up beautifully when the candle is lit.

              To be honest, i'm not really sure how to describe the scent, but I can tell you it sure is lovely. Its quite a relaxing smell and is perfect for a winters evening in front of the TV.
              Because the candle has a softer scent, it takes a bit longer for the room to fill with the scent, but once it has, you will be enjoying the smell for hours, and soon the whole house will be filled with the lovely smell!

              The candles normally cost about £3, but they are often on offer, if you like scented candles, please give this one a go, I don't think you will be disappointed!

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                a pretty little candle which could be a little stronger in smell

                I quite like candles around the house, especially in the winter. I found the Glistening snow candle from Glade in Tesco.
                Normally priced at £3.00 it was a bargain at half price so I bought this one as a snowy night reminder of things to come.

                The candle comes in a glass bowel type pot with a deep turquoise candle filling to about half full. This is packaged inside a cardboard box which has a cut out, so you can see the products turquoise and sliver snow flake patterns. The pattern is imprinted on a plastic wrap on the glass, which I guess you could take off after you finish with the candle if you want to use it for something else.
                The box gives the usual warnings regarding candles ie, not to let children play with fire and don't leave the candle unattended etc. It does give another warning of sensitivity to perfume smells, which I can't say I have seen before but would be useful to some. As with all candles it should be placed on a suitable surface as it does get a little warm if burning for a couple of hours or so.
                The light given from the candle is a soft glow as the wick is hidden inside the bowel and would be nice with a few dotted around the room.

                So the smell - "fresh cut needle and spruce blended with notes of berries, cinnamon and orange peel" is what the box says.
                I can't say it smelt much like any of these to me, perhaps pine needles at a push. To me the smell somewhat reminds me of bathrooms, not unpleasant, but not one fragrance I would choose again for my living room. There is a gentle waft which is not over powering or in fact strong, the hint of the smell does linger but it certainly is not obvious when you walk in the room. Personally I like mine stronger, but it is pretty all the same.

                Burn time about 30 hours.

                  See review.

                  Since my eldest cat has been ill, my home has not had the best smell as it used to have before her illness, I just am constantly buying different smelling products to help my home smell just a little better at times, although my visitors understand her illness, it can still be a little embarrassing at times if someone I do not know has to enter my home, and so I saw this candle from Tesco and thought I would give an extra fragrance to my home and one that would probably last a little longer than a aerosol spray.

                  It only cost £1.50 a while ago when I bought it, the candle comes in a cardboard box packaging and the candle sits inside a round shape glass jar, the jar is a pretty turquoise colour and the candle itself is a dark green colour, the jar has a very pretty design of snowflakes and the candle is a very good quality one, the smell is apparent before it is used, and once used the aroma from it, is such a lovely fragrance and it made my room smell nice and perfumy.

                  Once lit, the candle lasts for up to 30 hours, which in my opinion is a very good amount of hours as some burn quite fast but this one takes it time and so it is a very good value, and although I have not had the 30 hours as yet, I am sure it will last that long as I have been using it though the day in my home on a regular basis at the moment and I am very pleased with the time it is lasting, the fragrance releases around the room just perfect.

                  The wax melts slowly to release the fragrance around the home perfectly, and the jar looks very attractive too, the fragrance is a nice fresh cut needle and spruce, blended with berries, orange peel and cinnamon, and I think it has such a nice smell to it, I am going to buy another one as I am pleased as punch with this one for the low price, it is that good I can even smell the fragrance before entering the room, which I think is fab for my home at the moment.

                  This is manufactured by SC Johnson and it is the Glade range which is a fabulous range of good quality smelling products and this one is a very nice one for the coming Christmas season and I think it would enhance any table setting for the Christmas dinner etc and I think that this would be such a nice one to place around the home at Christmas time too.

                  I really think this one is amazing and I love it, and it is always advisable never to leave it unattended but that is just common sense but some people leave them alight when they are outdoors and so it is a precaution we all have to take note of for the safety of others and our homes.

                  I highly recommend this one for anyone to try and I have been pleased with it and I bought it on special offer some weeks ago and had forgotten I had it until recently, but I am not sure if the offer is available now, I bought it from Tesco so go grab yourself a bargain if you see it on offer or not as I do think you will be amazed with this one.

                  I give this 5 stars.

                  Thank you for reading my review.

                    Great smelling candles to help bring on winter less painfully!

                    These Glade candles are currently £3 each in my local Tesco, and I just bought a few on a buy one get one free promotion - keep an eye out for these as we approach Christmas as they seem to do the rounds across various supermarkets.

                    I have bought Glistening Snow, Spiced Apple, Honey and Chocolate, and Winter Berries.

                    I buy candles like these as winter starts, because the smell really brightens up your home, and I'll be honest - they remind me of Christmas which is my favourite time of year!

                    Each candle lasts for around 30 hours, I light one candle each night for several hours and they have lasted very well. The smell is very strong and in our flat you can smell it in the other rooms as well as the lounge in which I light them. They also come in attractive candle holders, which all coordinate with each other.

                    My particular favourite is the Spiced Apple, which always reminds me of Christmas, with the Honey and Chocolate being a very comforting warming smell.

                    I would definitely recommend these candles - especially if you need something to cheer you up as the nights start drawing in!

                    .

                    I bought a couple of these in Savers the other month. Not really sure this was a left over from Christmas Time last year, or a preparation for this Festive Season, but the price was good enough so I got them. I've had this one before.

                    This cost £1.49 but I know Glade Candles can cost around £2.50 in my local Asda.

                    This looks like the Dooyoo picture. This is in a cardboard sleve where you can see the Candle as well. The Candle is in a glass holder but the top of it is wide enough and you can see the Waxy Candle there. It smells nice even when unlit and the Candle seems large enough as well.

                    When lit I would say this burns for a good few hours. I'm sure Glade states that this burns for approx 10 hours, and although I can have a Candle on for a good few hours, I don't time how long this actually lasts for.

                    This gives a gentle scent to the room. Doesn't seem to last too long, and this isn't because i've got used to the scent it seems the scent just disappears a little while after this has been on for a bit.

                    It's hard to say what this smell is like. It is a fresh scent which smell a tiny bit minty but it is just like a crisp fresh scent. I guess it is like a Winters morning and I like the scent.

                    I would recommend this scented Candle to anyone who likes a subtle fresh light scent.

                    A stunning festive fragranced candle from Glade

                    When I lived at my previous house, I would be burning several candles every day, which would normally be one scented and several tee-lights. However, it was only when I sold my house and removed the mirror and photographs from the walls did I realise the effects of my excessive candle burning! My walls were brown from the smoke and smuts and even though no-one had ever lit a cigarette in my house, they resembled that of a 40 a day Woodbine smoker!

                    Consequently, my candle burning is now limited and I will now burn just one scented candle during the cold and dark winter evenings. There is nothing more cosy than watching a good film with the lights switched off and the gentle flicker of a single flame producing a stunning and relaxing aroma in your room.

                    As I've spent a fortune over the years on purchasing candles that smell of absolutely nothing when burned, I now generally tend to purchase only two brands, namely as Yankee and Glade.

                    The candle I am reviewing today is Glade Glistening Snow, which is 120g in weight and manufactured by SC Johnson. The candle is contained within a cardboard sleeve displaying images of Christmas, such as a pine tree and cones laden in snow and a long slither of orange peel wrapped around a bundle of cinnamon sticks. As I bulk purchased four of these candles during the early part of this year, mine have a "new" sign located in the top left hand corner, as I believe thesy were initially introduced towards the end of last year.

                    I wasn't even aware that I owned such a large stash, but as the weather has been particularly horrendous lately, I decided to spend some time having a good sort out of my home and found these candles hidden at the back of a drawer.

                    The candle is contained within a beautifully decorated glass jar, which stands at 7 cm in height and 7 cm in diameter at the upper section. As there is an opening within the cardboard sleeve, you are able to see the attractive jar, which displays gorgeous images of snowy star shapes in a beautiful blue sky. For me, these images always conjure up thoughts of Christmas and cold crisp winter mornings. The great feature with the design of the packaging is that are you able to experience the beautiful fragrance prior to your purchase.

                    On removing the jar from the packaging, you are able to appreciate the full splendour of this candle with its' dark green wax and centimetre long wick. When I first purchased this range, I was somewhat disappointed to discover that there is a 2 cm gap at the top of the jar and I was of the opinion that the candle would not last very long. However, after lighting the wick, within approximately ten to fifteen minutes your room will be filled with the most gorgeous aroma and will continue to do so for up to thirty hours.

                    Glistening Snow contains the fragrances of fresh-cut pine needles and blends of berries, cinnamon and orange peel; all of which are beautiful festive aromas. Glade inform us that in order to minimise the risk of fire, the wick should be trimmed to 5 mm prior to lighting and you should cease use when only 5 mm of wax remains.

                    Glade provide us with some cautionary information where we are informed that the candle should be kept out of reach of children and pets and never be left unattended. We are informed that the wax contains a number of substances that may produce an allergic reaction, so I would suggest you read the information on the label prior to purchase.

                    Although the jar has a thickened glass base, I always place it on a coaster when in use to avoid burning and/or scorching my wooden table where you should also ensure that your surface is level and free of any draughts.

                    I always find Glade candles to be excellent value for money, as they remain beautifully fragranced until you need to discard them. As Glistening Snow is a seasonal fragrance, you will probably not be able to purchase it until the Autumn/Winter. I would highly recommend this product, particularly if you favour spicy fragrances and consequently, it receives 5 out of 5 dooyoo stars from me.

                    Although this fragrance is not yet available, I have checked Tesco website to give you an indication of price and would advise that the other fragrances within the range are selling for £3.00 each. However, Glade candles are frequently on offer and if my memory serves me correct, I'm sure I paid around £1 each for mine earlier on this year.

                    I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.
