This weekend, I popped past the Glade Scent Gallery, where I got to experience a world of different home fragrances and how each one can instantly change your mood and create emotion. We experienced the emotion of feeling Exhilarated by Morning Freshness, the feeling of Calmness with Lavender & Vanilla, the feeling of Freshness and Newness with Clean Linen and finally, the warmth of Relaxation with Ocean Escape. Each scent designed to link to and awaken happy emotions.
Scent plays such an important role on your emotions! The mere whiff of something can bring a ton of memories rushing back, as if you were transported to that exact moment in your past. The smell of salty air and the ocean breeze, instantly transports me into relaxation mode and conjures up the feel good emotions of going on holiday. The smell of freshly baked bread filling up my space, takes me right back to my childhood, where my mom would bake delicious Tsoureki for Greek Easter.
That’s why for me, creating a beautiful smelling home is something I really try to focus on. I want my guests to enjoy being in my home from the moment they step in! There’s nothing quite like a beautiful smell to invite you into someone else’s space. It makes you feel welcomed, it makes you feel happy and it makes you want to stay. Glade Secrets make it easy for you to create an inviting space for your guests and a sanctuary for you and your family by connecting your emotions, how you want to feel, by simply filling your home with beautiful aromas.
If you want to feel exhilarated, then Glade Secrets Morning Freshness is for you. This home fragrance collection reminds me of breezy, summer mornings… Birds singing, sun shining, happy moods and smiles all-round.
It’s a lovely fresh scent that’s inspiring and mood lifting. It gives me the same happy emotion I experience when I notice the tiny blooms at the start of spring.
Create the emotion of Calmness with Glade Secrets Lavender & Vanilla. This scent collection is comforting and relaxing. The sweet smell of vanilla, blended with the bitterness of lavender instantly puts my mind, and my whole body into ahhhhhh mode.
I’m not the biggest fan of lavender scents in home fragrances (yet I love the real thing – go figure), but the combination of vanilla in this one, makes it softer and less bitter – creating a really relaxing emotion. It leaves me feeling as though I’ve just had an amazing spa treatment.
My favourite collection has to be Clean Linen! There is nothing I love more than walking into my home and getting that whiff of freshly laundered clothes. The smell of warm, fluffy towels, clean cotton and crisp sheets is such a comforting smell to me, there’s something about it that just makes everything feel new.
It’s sort of like that new car smell that you just breathe in and enjoy when you get a new set of wheels. Clean Linen creates that same kind of newness smell in your home. I love getting into bed at night and smelling the fresh linen, or getting out of my bath or shower and wrapping myself in a soft, freshly laundered towel. Bliss!
Clean Linen is like a breath of fresh air. It’s so good that I will be making this the signature scent of my main bedroom and main bathroom. Glade Secrets Clean Linen Aerosol and Glade Secrets Clean Linen Glass Sensations for my main bathroom and then Glade Secrets Clean Linen Automatic Spray for my bedroom, to keep the constant whiff of freshness going and going.
The last scent experience we explored was Glade Secrets Ocean Escape which was an instant burst of relaxation – you know the same feeling you get when you’ve been lazing on the beach all day – with no appointments, no one to see, nothing to rush to and nothing to do. Ya, you know what I’m talking about, the very feeling we plan beach holidays to experience.
Isn’t it great that you can trick your mind into creating those very emotions you love to feel with the power of scent?
Which one will you be filling your home with?[signature]
