It’s not uncommon this time of year to come across a bunch of new fall fragrance, each fragrance company competing with one another to make the most sales. Placing us, the customers, in a fall bliss with each new fragrance.
This is my favorite time of year because the scents that flood the fragrance isles are my top favorites. Fall aromas warm my blood like no other, and when I came across Glade’s Candle Refills I was on the hunt for a pumpkin scent. I found it in their Country Spice Candles.
Country Spice smelled fantastic and I was able to smell the fall harvest fragrances right through the package. It was a mix of pumpkin pie doused with cinnamon, and fall leaves. A perfect little combination that easily captures the essence of the season.
Glades candle refills however are small, and they only burn for about an hour or so till the wick goes out. However with their past history I knew how these little delights worked. Small yes, but my God can they pump out fragrance like no other. The secret is the oil added to these tiny little candles, and the hidden secret is that even after the candle is burnt out, the scent will continue to linger for quite some time. They are the perfect minis to have on hand for when you have guests, or when you just feel like adding a little fragrance to the home.
Country Spice however was a little disappointing compared to other refill candles by Glade I have used in the past.
The scent is recognizable yes, but it does not seem to spread out and flood the room quite as powerful as others in Glades candle collection.
The cinnamon fragrance seems to spread the most, while the pumpkin and fall leaf aroma tends to sit lingering closer to the candle than anywhere else.
It’s a lovey scent, however this candle does not burn as strong as others. Maybe I got a bad batch? Whatever the case, I likely wouldn’t pick this one up again because of its lacking in fragrance potency.
This is not saying the other fall fragrances in Glade’s collection are lacking, in fact they are excellent. This one however just needs a little more juice.
