While I adore the spring and summer because it lets me wear cute dresses, sandals and go to the beach all the time. But with that said I really love the holiday season and all of the great things surrounding it..
I have a very close knit family in which I consider my cousins not just my best friends, but my sisters. While we always have a great time when we're together, it's even more so during the holidays. Growing up in New York City means I had the most festive holiday season ever. The street lights were decorated, Rockefeller Center screamed Christmas and if you turned the right corner you'd see oversized ornaments taking over the median on Park Ave.
For this holiday season I’ll be staying in Los Angeles, away from my family, and so it’s nice to feel the holiday spirit all around my apartment when I come home from work or when I’m lounging around. Not to mention the fact that I haven’t seen snow or felt the super crisp air of winter since I live in the land of summer, as I always mention.
I firmly believe that scents have a connection to powerful memories so I was happy to be offered the chance to give the Glade® Limited Edition Winter Collection a try and share my thoughts on it. I decided to try some jar candles, PlugIns® Scented Oils and premium room sprays in the new SHARE THE SPIRIT™, SEND A LITTLE LOVE™ and BE AT PEACE™ fragrances. The new fragrances from the Glade® Limited Edition Winter Collection was created to help embody the special moments that have been shared with friends and family and each scent reminds me of the holidays and spending time together with family and friends.
I decided to put my SHARE THE SPIRIT ™ Jar Candle in my bathroom because I spend a lot of time there getting ready or taking a relaxing bath and I found the scent very relaxing and soothing. It fills the room with notes of vanilla biscotti™ and creates a warmth that makes me feel fuzzy inside. It reminds me of spending time with the people I care about the most. I also used the same scent in the PlugIns® Scented Oil for my bedroom because I love to smell the fragrance when I’m relaxing and reading a book.
When it came to my living room I wanted a candle that not only looked like it was decor for the holiday season but made my apartment smell festive too. The BE AT PEACE™ Jar Candle did the trick. Placing it at the center of my massive coffee table made it pop because it was a nice contrast to the browns and reds in my living room. Not only did the jar candle look amazing but the scent of balsam fir & juniper totally puts me in the holiday spirit.
To keep all areas of my apartment smelling like the holiday season. I placed the Glade® Premium Room Spray in the SHARE THE SPIRIT™ fragrance in my guest bathroom. It’s a perfect fit because I love the color of the can and it’s such a unique scent that makes me feel like the holidays are already here.
Overall I think the new Glade® Limited Edition Winter Collection fragrances are great and give a nice touch to your home during the holiday season. So head over to your nearest Kroger or banner store and let me know which fragrance is your favorite!
