Living in a house filled with boys has challenges all of its own, the toilet seat is always up, sports equipment takes over every room in the house, and then there is the constant rugged boy-smell that has consumed my home. Combined with a dog and two cats, I have lost all hope of making my home smell like a relaxing spa. There are many air fresheners on the market that will help eliminate these odors but my husband insists that these fragrances make him sick and give him headaches, basically he thinks they stink because they mask his “manly” smell. Thanks to the new Glade Expressions Oil Diffuser I have found the perfect solution to my odor problem.
Once upon a time I lived in a world of candles, incense, and my home was a filled with heavenly scents. The transition from this luscious world was not instant, but rather crept up slowly until one day there was nothing left in my house that added to the ambience of the room and captured the essence of me. It started when my first son was born, as he began crawling and exploring the world, breakable items were gradually placed out of his reach until it was just easier to box these items up with the intention of putting them back out once he was out of the grabby hands stage. Of course, then came number two and we started this process all over again. My boys are now well past the stage of worrying about a candle burning their fingers but these items are still in a box shoved in the far corner of my attic.
Over the past year I have purchased several products intending to “take back” my home. The decorative plug in warmers work well, but my husband complains that the scent is too strong, and that they give him a headache, therefore I use these sparingly and usually only if he is going to be away from the home for several hours. Other air fresheners start off working great but after a few days, the scent has faded so much it is undetectable. The Glade Expressions Oil Diffuser offers a subtle aroma that is still going strong after a couple of weeks.
The Glade Expressions Oil diffuser comes in four flavors: Pineapple & Mangosteen, Cotton & Italian Mandarin, Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice and Lavender & Juniper Berry. I purchased the Pineapple & Mangosteen flavor and I knew from the day I brought the diffuser home that this home fragrance was different. My husband complemented it’s unique design and even commented on the fresh scent. The first night I placed the diffuser in the bathroom downstairs or “The Boys Bathroom” as we like to call it at my house, this is the room that remains in a constant funk no matter how many times I scrub the floors and the toilet. The next morning, my son walks into the bathroom and says, “Wow this room smells so fresh and clean.” He was right, the bathroom smelled great, but knowing my husbands affinity for smells I decided to move the diffuser into the living room to disburse the fragrance in a larger area. This has worked well. The diffuser blends into our decor and goes unnoticed by my family, but every time I walk into the house I am hit with a faint smell of heaven.
Glade Expressions also carries a fragrance mist which is perfect when you need an instant blast of air freshener. The fine mist of fragrance instantly eliminates unwanted odors and quickly disburses so you are never left with a fragrance that overpowers even small areas. The fragrance mist comes in the same four delightful flavors as the Oil diffuser, offers a long-lasting fragrance and is artfully designed to fit into any decor.
