We have been purchasing Glade products for as long as we can remember and have our favourites depending on the time of what time of year it is. For example we love Clean Linen or Relaxing Zen in during the spring, summer and the With Love and Christmas scents later on. Scents play a huge part in my life from perfumes to candles to even washing up liquid. As a perfume wearer I love seductive warm scents with amber, sandalwoods and honey, I feel these scents make me feel calm, feminine and glamorous (even when I'm not looking so glam).
I noticed that Glade had brought out the Honey & chocolate candle while shopping in ASDA and after sniffing it I had to snatch it up straight away. The scent of the candle is unlike any other that Glade have brought out, it actually smells more like a perfume and more real to its ingredients that any of the other candles in my opinion.
Normally chocolate scents aren't something that I would purchase as they tend to smell plastic and lab produced however the chocolate in this candle isn't too prominent and is blended really well with the honey. When I smell this candle I can imagine warm honey, vanilla and caramel with a touch of milky chocolate and a touch of real amber resin, it really is smells delicious although these aren't necessarily the notes they have used in the scent but are what my nose is picking up.
When I got the candle home I lit it straight away, the caramel coloured wax melts evenly and envelopes the room in its gorgeous warming scent, the scent eventually does make it around the home and lasts even when the candle wick has been put out. My sons now all love this candle scent and will literally run to get this from the shelves in ASDA. They say it remind them of Santa coming. (We first purchased this last Christmas so the association is probably due to that).
*Burning & Lasting times*
The packaging states that the candle should last for around 30 hours and in my opinion it does not last this long I'd say possible 12-20 max hours burning for 1 candle.
The candle comes in a square cardboard box with one edge exposed he box depicts a fireplace with a fire burning in it. The Glade branding is obvious on this candle as it is on all of their products. The side of the box tells us that this is a 'New Look' candle. The candle is poured into a glass jar with a plastic wrapping around it. The plastic wrapping is honey and caramel colours all swirled around the jar. There are also silver and gold swirls which always remind me of Christmas time.
I cannot fault this candle other than I wish Glade would make a huge version of it, I actually love the scent so much that I contacted Glade to ask if they would consider making an air freshener or perfume of this exact scent. Needless to say no-one got back to me.
The candle looks pretty, it burns really well and the scent actually does fill the whole house unlike some of the others in the Glade product range. I would recommend this candle to candle lovers and especially those who like warm foody scents. However, if you do not buy Glade products you can get a similar scent from Febreeze's Sandalwood candles and air freshners.
