Review: Glade Wax Melts

I was given the chance to review the Hawaiian Breeze and Apple Cinnamon Wax Melts from Glade.  I have been an avid wax melts user for years, so I was VERY excited to hear that Glade had come out with their own.  I love the simplicity of being able to drop a cube in my wax melter on my counter, and have the house permeated with an amazing aroma.  I stuck with scents similar to ones I already used, and that I knew my husband and I would probably like.  We tend to stick with cinnamon and apples in regards to candles and such, as they cover the kitty smell we sometimes have the best.  Plus they just smell tasty.  :-)  Glade's Apple Cinnamon Wax Melt did not disappoint.  It was not overpowering, but did a great job of giving the house a nice pleasant smell.  As for the Hawaiian Breeze, I already use Glade's candles in that scent, so I knew it would be a hit.  I love the Springy-freshness it brought to the house.  Kind of like that first Spring day when you can open all of your house windows, and everything is so sunny and fresh, and it makes you smile!  Overall, I feel that the new Glade Wax Melts are a great product.  They come in a variety of scents, a little something for everyone.  They also last a good while, making them a good value as well.  And, of course, they are super simple to use, and can be used in the wax melter you already own that matches your decor - always a plus!
Let me know if you've tried the new Glade Wax Melts, and what your favorite scent is.

I am a BzzAgent, and received Glade coupons to purchase the Wax Melts to try, however, all opinions expressed are my own.
