Glade! Who Knew?

So, you know those commercials where the woman puts out the glade candles and has her friends over and they all comment on the lovely fragrance that she claims is from a French boutique...until they find the glad label on her butt! HA! Sorry....it's funny. What can I do about it? Nothing. So laugh with me. It will make your day a brighter place!

ANYWAY....BzzAgent was awesome enough to send me one of Glade's newest candles to test out and share with others. If you aren't already familiar with BzzAgent you should check it out! As an agent, I get the chance to try new products and tell all my friends, family, and random people on the street about them! I offer an honest opinion and you all get it straight. I don't get paid, I just get the product to try out to see what I think! It's a totally fun way to influence the development and marketing of products! Love it!

So, they sent me this awesome candle.

Glade The Fragrance Collection

It is a part of the Fragrance Collection by Glade. What is the Fragrance Collection? Well, according to Glade they are "Boutique-quality candles and reed diffusers, in fragrances including Currants & A├žai™, Lotus Bamboo and Sheer White Cotton." And they aren't kidding! When I pulled out this soy based candles a couple of things caught my eye immediately. First off...check out the multiple wicks! Do I love that? YES! You rarely find that in an inexpensive candle and it is SO pretty to have more than one wick flickering! I love it! Also, the fragrance of this particular candle hit me as soon as I opened the box! WOW! It smells SO good! It isn't sugary or overbearing in any way! The sweet, fruity fragrance wafts and provides a beautiful, yet subtle aroma throughout the area in which you are burning the candle.

Another awesome thing about these candles are the jars! I am ALL for jar candles, as I don't like to have random stuff around for pillar candles and votives and all that. I really like a great candle that comes in a nice presentation and this fits that bill beautifully! Also, this candle, even with the multiple wick action - burns up to 35 hours according to the manufacturer! (I haven't timed it, but mine is still in good shape! LOL!) It is soy based, too! Love that! They use over 90% natural ingredients! While I would rather see 100%, I am pretty happy with that number.

Finally, the price is perfect! At a suggested $8.99 (and I've seen coupons floating around quite a bit for these!) you get a great candle for WAY less than those 'boutique' stores. Plus - you can get them at Walmart, Target, or even your local grocery store! Convenience is a VERY GOOD THING!!! I love that I don't have to go near a mall for a quality candle!

They also have reed diffusers and small votive jar candles in this collection, too! With great fragrances to choose from, you simply can't go wrong!


As an added bonus...BZZ sent me some great coupons to share! I want to share them with you, so I will give one person TWO coupons for $3.00 off any item from the Glade Fragrance Collection!

  3. I think I'd try the earthly awakening. I'm kind of tired of the plain ole vanilla thing and the too strong and fruity thing that is out there everywhere. Give me something earthy, soothing and not overpowering. I reserve the right to change my mind once i have a coupon and test them in the store.... LOL>

  10. The Currants and Acai because I already have one and love it and thought the cotton was a bit over powering in the store.

  12. The one I think i would like most is mcintosh apple. I have an apple candle that I like already, and it would be neat to compare them. I was planning on picking a vanilla scent, b/c it's my fave, but I just don't know how I'd like that orange scent mixed with it.

  17. Hi!
    I would try the mcintosh apple scent because growing up here in Michigan,in one of the leading apple-growing regions of the world, the scent of apples comforts me and reminds me of fall, and besides is a welcoming, clean scent.
    Thank you very much for this chance!
