I have heard nothing but good things about Glade scented candles but I always decided against purchasing one because of the price. At £3.00 each I thought it was a little expensive. Thanks to reading a review on this particular candle recently, I discovered that these were now half price at Tesco.
There are various fragrances available in the range but With Love was one of my favourites.
Glade, part of SC Johnson has been a trusted household name for as long as I can remember and always deliver good quality products for the home.
The packaging has been recently redesigned from the picture that can be seen which gives it a slightly cleaner, more up to date look. The Candle itself is contained in a very pretty, decorative glass pot with swirls and hearts. The colours used are delicate peaches and pinks which really help to represent the scent. The glass pot is sold housed in a cardboard sleeve with a picture of hearts on the front and top. A corner of the sleeve is cut away making it easy to smell the scent of the candle within.
The wax is cream in colour, and when sniffed directly, smells quite strong. The fragrance is described on the sleeve as "A rich floral bouquet of sensual jasmine blended with soft fruity notes", and I feel this is quite an apt description.
After lighting the wick, I could soon detect the fruity floral aroma which quickly began to fill the room. I would say this is quite a sweet scent but not sickly like some can be. The candle is strong enough to fragrance a room, but the aroma is not overpowering.
The candle is meant to last for up to 30 hours but as yet, I cannot comment on this.
Overall, this is a good alternative to aerosol and plug-in frangrances and not only goes it give off a lovely scent, it radiates a lovely warm glow. Of course, candles can be dangerous so I would advise placing this in a safe place when lit to avoid any accidents.
