New Glade Expressions Collections - Inspired by Art - @BzzAgent

I have been enjoying the Glade Expressions products for about a month, now.  As a BzzAgent, I often get to try products for free in exchange for sharing my honest opinion with friends, family, and through social media.

The new line comes in several scents.  The Cotton and Italian Mandarin combines cotton with citrus scents.  It is light, and lingering.  I chose this scent, and like it very much.

Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice would probably be a perfect scent for these Fall months.  It is described as a combination of apple and pear with cinnamon and clove undertones.

The Lavender and Juniper Berry selection also includes a hint of eucalyptus.  It will probably be a great choice for a mood boost in February, when my winter blues set in.

A lot of my friends chose the Pineapple and Mangosteen scent.  The combination of tropical fruit scents also blends in creamy coconut and passionflower.

In addition to the unique scents, the delivery systems are also brand new, and attractive.  The photo above shows the spray bottle and refill unit.  With the label removed, it can be left plain, or decorated to suit your personal taste and decor.  simply pop the refill bottles in and out of the cover.  Instead of the usual spray nozzle, this unit is squeezed.  The scents are long lasting and one squirt works for an entire room.  When using this dispenser in a small space, such as a bathroom, laundry room, or closet, just a tiny bit goes a long way, so I would suggest getting used to the dispenser in a larger space, like the kitchen or the living room.

The oil diffuser is a thoughtful update to an already great idea.  Instead of having a bottle filled with oil, and using reeds to absorb and diffuse the scent, the oil is soaked on to a card, which is then placed into the attractive holder. It does not need to be plugged in.  It just sits.  I like that it prevents accidents from tipping, takes up much less space, and is very effective.  It is a bit strong especially to start, so if you are scent sensitive, it is good to keep this in mind.  The holder comes in a plain or a bamboo design.
