This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to commentor #54: Michelle P!
Last month, Glade and Giuliana Rancic announced an exciting partnership to launch the new Glade Expressions Collection. The collection features an incomparable fragrance experience in two contemporary designs – a fragrance mist and an oil diffuser – that are available in four new on-trend, lightly layered and long lasting fragrances that were blended by leading Gladeperfumers.
And since we love a nice smelling home we couldn’t wait to give these new fragrances a try! We received the Fragrance Mist in Cotton & Italian Mandarin and Lavender & Juniper Berry. Both smelled great without being overpowering but our favorite out of the two was the Lavender & Juniper Berry. I’ve always been a big fan of lavender and this scent was so pretty and relaxing. These newly designed containers are very modern looking and actually blends into my decor because when you take off the outside label the container is completely white. No more having to hide it when guests come over!
We also received the Oil Diffuser in Pineapple & Mangosteen and Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice. To use it, just remove the diffuser card and insert it into the decorative holder.
When you hear a “click” you’re ready to go. I really liked that you have a choice between the white holder or the brown bamboo one. This gives you more of an option when coordinating with your home’s decor.
The best part about the new Glade Expressions is that it really works! The scent is long lasting and doesn’t disappear moments after it’s dispensed. It’s also not too strong or overpowering. However, what we liked best were the selections of scents available. The combinations produce scents that are not normally available in other air fresheners.
Here are some tips from Giuliana Rancic on how you can make fragrance work for your home:
Glade Expressions is a Whole New Way to Experience Fragrance
- Add Drama to the Entryway. The entry way of a home is the first thing people see when they arrive so make sure it’s impactful! And did you know wallpaper is back in vogue? Updating the walls with a fun, floral or damask wallpaper or a painted chevron pattern will add visual interest and invite guests in.
- Fill the Air with a Signature Scent. If a room is gorgeously put together but lacks an inviting scent, the effect may fall flat. To complete a room, add a signature scent with one of the four true-to-life fragrances from the new Glade® Expressions™ Collection. The fragrance offerings combine classic scents with an exotic twist and are available in two contemporary designs to complement the room’s decor and ambiance.
- Scent is Evocative of Personality. Select a signature scent for your home and use it as inspiration to update a room’s accessories – matching fragrance to the look and style of the room. For instance, if you’re drawn to more of a warm and spicy scent like Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice from the Glade® Expressions™ Collection, try swapping out throw pillows for ones with bold and vibrant colors in an ikat print, or adding elements from far-away – framing an old European map or display vintage travel books.
Engage All Senses. Sights, sounds, textures and scent all work together to complete the ambiance of a space. Try using soft lighting with lamps and dimmers to achieve a warm and inviting atmosphere. Mix textures in the room by adding comfortable elements like a soft throw combined with a modern, sleek sofa to add sophistication. Add dimension and keep the room warm with an understated, traditional rug. And don’t forget a good soundtrack!
- Bring the Outdoors In. Displaying live plants and flowers in a room literally make the space come alive! Lemon or orange trees topiaries, or moss and herb pots – such as rosemary – have been everywhere, providing a natural pop of color and a nod to the latest trends from the natural world.
