I am sure you have heard of Glade. They are a brand that sells more than air fresheners. You can read more about them below.
I have always enjoyed a nice smelling, long lasting candle. I will admit there are not many out there that I have found both of these qualities in. I used to make candles as a self-employed job and when I stopped I was very leery of any other candles.
I am happy to report after burning a couple of these candles that I am very happy with Glade’s candles. They have a nice strong scent and burn for hours at a time. (many, many hours). So Glade has won me over.
With many different products to keep your home smelling wonderful, you are sure to find what works best for you. They have as I mentioned, candles, wax melts (that come in 2 different size counts), oils & gels, sprays & refills.
Glade has new holiday scents that you still have time to get to keep your house festive. They have great scents such as pomegranate sparkler, balsam fir & juniper, apple cinnamon and more. I will describe them below.
Share the Spirit: Pomegranate Sparkler combines two favorite citrus aromas of tangerine and grapefruit. It contains top notes of pear, tangerine, grapefruit, middle notes of winter rose, pomegranate, jasmine with bottom notes of sandalwood, cedarwood, and creamy coconut.
Be at Peace: Balsam Fir & Juniper is very festive as it reminds me of Christmas pasts. It includes top notes of pine, middle notes of juniper, spruce and bottom notes of cypress.
Send a Little Love: Vanilla Biscotti is like you just baked fresh cookies. This has top notes of citrus, middle notes of freesia, peony, creamy orchid, and bottom notes of vanilla, sugary amber, and baked biscotti all blended in one candle.
Cherish the Present: Apple Cinnamon always makes you think of Grandma’s house. This has top notes of apple cider, mixed fruit, berries with middle notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove. Then there is bottom notes of vanilla, cream, and woods.
Be at Peace | Cherish the Present: This is one candle with two very different holiday themes. This one combines top notes of apple cider, mixed fruit, berries, middle notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, clove and bottom notes of vanilla, cream, and woods.
Creamy Custard |Cherish the Present: This candle is a great mix. This one has top notes of apple, nutmeg, cinnamon, middle notes of whipped vanilla, white chocolate, custard. Then the bottom notes sweep in with spun sugar and Créme Brulee.

Sing Out Loud: Gingerbread Spice Gingerbread is a season favorite and Glad has made sure to include it in their festive line-up. This has top notes of black cardamom, candied ginger, nutmeg with middle notes of marzipan, hazelnut, cinnamon sticks, and finishes off with bottom notes of brown sugar, warm molasses, and iced gingerbread. This is only available at Walmart.
Welcome the Joy: Winter Berry is just that, joy all wrapped into a candle. It has the scent of sparkling grapefruit with juicy peaches. To get this scent combination, it has top notes of apple, grapefruit, peach with middle notes of apricot, dewberry, raspberry and bottom notes of coconut and vanilla cream.
