Bzz Campaign: Glade Expressions.

My apartment has been smelling fantastic this past month thanks to Glade Expressions and Bzzagent! This is not an easy task considering I have 4 cats and one stinky boyfriend in a 1 bedroom apartment.

 According to the Glade website: "These true-to-life fragrance combinations are inspired by art and designed to open up note by note, filling your home and inviting life in."

Unlike a lot of other home fragments kits and spray, these Glade Expression products are meant to be displayed in the home. I really like the idea of have home fragrance products that look nice enough to become a part of my home decor. I usually just hide them away in the cabinet in my bathroom and in some dark corner of the living room. 

About my experience:

My Bzzkit included a welcome letter and a hefty coupon booklet. I got two free item coupons, one for a free Glade Expressions Oil Diffuser Start Kit and the other for a free Glad Expressions spray. I also got several dollar off coupons. I had a hard time finding some of the kits and sprays and had to go to several stores for all the one I purchased.

Glad Expressions Oil Diffuser Kits: Lavender & Juniper Berry and Pineapple & Mangosteen.

I picked these two kits because they are were only ones I could find in stores. I really wanted to try the Fuji Apple scent and went to handful of stores looking for it. I hope someone gets it there soon! 

Glade Expressions Sprays: Pineapple Mangosteen, 2 Lavender Juniper, and  Vibrant Bloom.

I was able to find a better variety of the Glade Expressions Sprays in stores. I love lavender so I purchased two of those. 

I decided to put one of the diffuser kits in my hallway because it always smells like my boyfriend's work clothes. He works in landscaping and I make him keep his oily, stinky, and dirty work clothes in the hall. My hallway usually smells like a mix of grass, dirt, and fuel. 

Glade Expressions Kit: Lavender & Juniper Berries.

My hallways smells a lot nicer immediately! I wouldn't say that the kit smells much like lavender though. It has kind of a clinic smell to it. It reminds me of something I would smell in a doctors office. I don't consider this a bad thing because it smells a heck of a lot better than grass and fuel. The nice white design really made me realize how badly my hallway needs to be painted. The advertisement on the box said they smell would last for a month. I would say it lasted for more like 3 weeks. It's been a month now and I probably need to refill it. I really miss having that nice smell in my hallway. Thankfully, the kit came with refill coupons! Awefreakingsome!

I put the other kit in my bathroom right on top of my toilet. I know it isn't the most decorative area to display it but I had it out in my living room first, and couldn't smell it at all. 

Glade Expressions Kit: Pineapple & Mangosteen
Meh, the change in location did not matter. I was a lot less impressed with this kit. I have a teeny tiny little bathroom and couldn't detect any scents coming from this diffuser. I even checked it several times to make sure I installed it properly. I could smell the pineapple and mango if I put it right up to my face but not all otherwise. I would not purchase this scent again as it is not nearly as powerful as the Lavender & Juniper. 

Next, I tried out some of the Glad Expression Sprays. What is real nifty about these is, you can take the wrapper off to make them look nicer and less obvious in your home. 

Glade Expressions Spray: Vibrant Bloom.

I kept them Vibrant Bloom spray near my cat litter because I found it worked the best with my box odors. I would wait for my cats to do something gross smelling and run over and do 2-3 sprays. The nasty smells goes away right away and is replaced with a scent springtime scent that is very vibrant. Vibrant Bloom is the perfect name for this spray. 

Here is what one of the sprays look like naked: 

Glad Expressions Spray: Pineapple & Mangosteen.
I kept this spray in my living room. I was a lot more impressed with the Pineapple & Mangosteen spray. It has a much stronger scent than the kit. I spray it every once it a while when I want to experience a nice pineapple and island scent. This was my favorite out of all the sprays. It makes me feel like I'm on a tropical island. LOVE IT! I haven't tried the Lavender & Juniper spray as yet. I plan on putting it out in my living room if I ever get tired of smelling pineapples. 

Overall, I had a great experience using these Glad Expressions products. I wish that they were easier to find in stores. I plan on keeping an eye out for the Apple and Italian Mandarin Kits. I'm very pleased with how my apartment smells and with how the sprays and kits look. Many thanks to Bzzagent and Glade for making me a part of this campaign!
