So I received coupons from BzzAgent to try out the new Glade Expressions Oil Diffuser and Fragrance Mist products for free. I also received coupons that I could pass out to others to try out the products too.
I really had to search for these products. My local Walmart SuperCenter didn't have them. What's up with that? So I went across town and SuperTarget had a limited supply. There are four fragrances (Cotton/Italian Madarin, Fuji Apple/Cardamom Spice, Lavender/Juniper Berry, Pineapple/Mangosteen). Only two of those seemed interesting (really you should have plain old vanilla because I like it). I got the oil diffuser in apple and the mist in pineapple. I figured it would be best to try out the two that I liked, plus the store actually had them in stock. After a comical check out (the register kept trying to give me the full coupon value eventhough the products weren't that much) I ended up paying my sales tax and leaving the store.
I set up my oil diffuser in my bedroom. Its a big room and I like it to smell. I find that candles and small oil diffusers just don't do the job so I wanted to test this out. The good news is that this oil diffuser packs a punch and it really does make the room smell. I'm going on three weeks now and it is supposed to last for 30 days. I'd say it is going to make it and probably go longer. Big Plus! This is a different apple smell than you are used to. It definitely takes the cardamom and make it very present. Not bad but not exactly what I want.
Now the bad news. I think it is ugly. I'm not a big one for decorating (anyone who has been to my house knows that) but I think it looks like plastic. It is white but I've seen some that look more wood grained. I would have liked that better for sure. I certainly wouldn't put it in my living room.
The Fragrance Mist is touted as being replaceable. You keep the outside and can change out the scents. Neat concept if it worked. First of all the plastic holder is ugly. No other word to describe it. It is supposed to be designed to be left out and not look bad but I've got that thing hidden away in the bathroom. I also don't think the scent lasts very long. I've spritzed three-four times each time and the smell is there briefly. I won't be getting any refills for this. I have found a really cool little product at Walmart that is powerful and packs a punch in a little silver container. I'll stick with that for bathroom smells.
This is my second product review for BzzAgent. I'm afraid I've been negative twice now (although this one was half positive). Hopefully I'll still be able to review products. They do say they want honest opinions.
