Glade Expressions Fragrance Mist and Oil Diffuser Review

Have you tried the new Glade Expressions® collection of air freshening products?  I will admit, with four cats, a dog, three kids, and a five-member-family in a constant state of go with soccer, dance competitions, hiking adventures, and general everyday life—my house is, unfortunately, not always the freshest.  How did Glade Expressions® Collection handle our home?  What was our review of Glade Expressions Fragrance Mist and the Glade Expressions® Oil Diffuser?

Glade Expressions® Collection was easy to find in local stores.  So often, we learn of a fun, new product—but, just cannot find it until it is no longer so new.  I was happy to find both the fugi apple & cardamom spice fragrance mist and thelavender and juniper berry oil diffuser at our local Kroger store.  They even stocked several of the available scents—making it easier to choose a scent that I felt was right for our home.

Glade Expressions® Fragrance Mist and Oil Diffuser were both fairly easy to use.  The fragrance mist was purchased as a starter kit—already with the fragrance canister loaded into the refillable holder.  A firm squeeze and the mist sprayed out into the room.  The oil diffuser starter kit was a little more difficult.  The instructions were straight-forward enough.  Simply press the diffuser card into the oil bottle until it clicked.  My starter kit did not seem to give an obvious “click”.  I was afraid that I would break the holder—or worse yet, puncture the oil bottle’s bottom.  I gave one more gentle push and noticed the scent—so I knew the unit was connected—but, I missed a clear ‘click’.  

How effective were the Glade Expressions® Fragrance Mist and the Oil Diffuser?  The fuji apple and cardamom spice was a fairly soft, mild scent.  I really liked it a lot.  It would be suitable for smaller spaces in the home like the girls’ rooms or my husband’s office.   The lavender and juniper berry oil diffuser was a bit more powerful.  I actually set it up in the second level of a two story split level foyer since I was a little concerned about the scent being too strong for my family.  Initially, it was a little overpowering.  After about eight hours, the scent diffused and softened.  I had originally planned to send it with my husband to his office—but, I am not sure how suited that scent is to a small, enclosed space.  Both fragrances and styles serve their purposes well.  The fragrance mist is a nice, temporary freshener while the oil diffuser seems to offer a long lasting, light freshness—once it has diffused a little!

How well do they fit into our home’s décor?  By simply removing the label from the Glade Expressions® fragrance mist, the holder goes from an obvious air freshener to a neutral, art-like piece that blends (or hides) easily in the rooms that most need a freshening hand.  The oil diffuser is actually kind of pretty—and neutral enough to blend happily on a shelf or table top in many different rooms.  Remember too that the diffuser is non-electric—so it’s a little different than the “hidden” air fresheners that many of us have used for so many years.

Would I recommend Glade Expressions® Fragrance Mist and the Oil Diffuser?  Personally, I like the scents and functionality of Glade products.  If you are sensitive to scents, the oil diffuser may take the most adjustment for the first several hours.  If you would like to learn more about the Glade Expressions® fragrance mist or oil diffuser, or available product scents and designs, visit Glade.com.

Disclosure:  I received coupons for a free sample of both the Glade Expressions® Fragrance Mist Starter Kit and the Glad Expressions Oil Diffuser as part of my participation in the BzzAgent program.  I was not asked to write a positive review—just to let my friends, family, and readers hear about my experiences with this product.  As always, my opinions and reviews are my own.
