Glade Scented Candles


Glade scented candles are the perfect way to make your home smell wonderful. They're easily found in many stores and come in a wide range of fragrances and styles.

Overview of Glade Scented Candles

Glade candles are made by the S.C. Johnson company. The company offers a variety of scents, colors, and styles. The fragrances are very strong. Once lit, they will quickly fill your home with scent. They use essential oils as well as man-made synthetic fragrances to scent the candles.

There are a number of different types of scented candles by Glade, including the basic candles, 2-in-1 scented candles, 3-in-1 pillar candles, and scented oil candles. Glade also makes a line of scented flameless candles that mimic a traditional candle, but use an LED light instead of an open flame.

Basic Scented Candles

Basic Glade scented candles contain a single scent and come in solid colors. You can purchase them in clear or frosted glass jars, decorative jars, or as votive candles in frosted votive holders. Popular scents include:

  • Angel Whisper
  • Apple Cinnamon
  • Clean Linen
  • French Vanilla
  • Fresh Mountain Morning
  • Lavender Meadow
  • Melon Burst
  • Mountain Berry
  • Peaches and Petals
  • Rain Shower
  • Refreshing Spa
  • Strawberries and Cream
  • Suddenly Spring

2-in-1 Scented Candles

Glade 2-in-1 scented candles are layered with contrasting colors and contain two different scents in one jar. The theory behind the layered candles is that once one layer burns off, the next layer provides a different yet complimentary scent. Fragrances include:

  • Fresh Berries and Wild Raspberry
  • Moonlit Walk and Wandering Stream
  • Creamy Custard and Blushing Apple

3-in-1 Blending Candles

The 3-in-1 blending candles are wide pillar candles with three layers of color and fragrance. Since they do not come in a container, you'll need to place them on a pillar candle holder or other flame and heat resistant surface before lighting. Fragrances in this line include:

  • Baking with Grandma
  • Berry Picking
  • Evening at Home
  • Starlit Garden

Scented Oil Candles

Scented oil candles are solid at first, but melt into a pool of scented oil once they're lit. They come in a small, clear glass holder designed to allow the oil to disperse its fragrance while keeping it contained. You can find scented oil candles in many of the same scents as the basic scented candles, as well as:

  • Dewberry Dreams.
  • Spiced Rose and Vanilla
  • Delicate Petals
  • Luscious Pear
  • Orchid Oasis
  • Pure Innocence

You can buy scented oil candles in a kit that includes one holder and two candles, or purchase a refill package that contains three candles.

Glade Wisp Flameless Candles

Flameless candles come in the following scents:

  • Apple Cinnamon
  • Clean Linen
  • French Vanilla
  • Hawaiian Breeze
  • Rain Shower

Special Holiday and Seasonal Candles

Many of these scented candles also come in limited edition varieties during seasonal promotions and holidays, like Pumpkin Pie in the fall, and Glistening Snow in the winter. At Christmas time, you'll find festive red and green candles decorated with seasonal images and featuring holiday scents like Cinnamon Gingerbread, Everlasting Pine, and Cranberry Delight.You'll also sometimes find candles with decorative jars, covered in images of animals, holiday themes, or pretty patterns that reflect the scent or a special occasion.

Glade Candles and Pet Birds

There has been a bit of controversy over the emissions from Glade candles and their effect on house pets, especially birds. The concentration of essential oils in the candles can have a damaging effect on the respiratory system in small birds, causing respiratory tract irritation and even death.

Where to Find Glade Candles

You can purchase Glade candles in numerous stores both online and off, including chain retailers like Walmart, Target, and Walgreens, local independent shops that carry items for your home, drug stores, grocery stores, some hardware stores, and online at Amazon or eBay.
