Scented Memories

Disclosure: I received the Glade® products shared in this post in exchange for my honest review. As always opinions shared here are 100% my own.

Have you ever caught a whiff of a certain smell, a scent that you’ve smelled before and it automatically conjures a certain memory? I do that all the time. The smell of fresh cut grass makes me think of summers as a kid, mowing the lawn, then sitting on the porch swing to enjoy a glass of iced tea. There’s a certain cologne my husband wore when we were first dating that always brings a smile to my face.

In a recent survey conducted by Glade® they found that 4 out of 5 (more than 80%) of Americans are consciously aware of how scent can inspire a mood or feeling. Knowing that scents can evoke memories and positive emotions it makes sense that most want their homes to smell nice.

Glade Review

Two of Glade®’s newest products help with the goal of a lovely smelling home while also serving as an artfully designed piece of your home decor. The Glade® Sense & Spray® Automatic Freshener, shown in the photo above and the Glade® PlugIns® Scented Oil Customizables™ Warmers shown in the photo below.

Glade Plug In Review

The Glade® Sense & Spray® Automatic Freshener is motion activated so that when a person enters the room, it senses their presence and releases a burst of scented spray. It also allows you to push the top of the freshener down to release a burst of scent whenever you choose.

My freshener came with a Clean Linen scent so I decided to test it out in my guest bathroom. I love that the Clean Linen smell gives off a clean, fresh vibe in a room that is not normally known for smelling so fresh… I did have guests over while testing the freshener and heard rave reviews about the fresh scent and how cool the freshener itself looked sitting on the bathroom counter. BUT we did get one comment that the freshener almost found itself on the floor when one guest used the bathroom in the middle of the night… I guess he turned on the light, the freshener went off and scared him to death! haha.

I tested the Glade® PlugIns® Scented Oil Customizables™ Warmers in my home office. The Warmer comes with two scented oils that alternate from day to day. One day my office smells like Apple Cinnamon and the next its Lavender & Peach Blossom. I love that the alternating scents mix things up so you don’t get tired of one smell too quickly. Each morning when I walk in to turn on my computer I’m met with a scent just as strong as when I opened the package!
