Blooming Peony & Cherry - 'The bright and zesty notes of cherry and red fruit flirt with the charming, delicate notes of pink rose and precious peony. Relaxing scents of white woods and creamy musk balance the equation and set the mood for romance.'
As I spend a little time with retail brands in my break from the chaos of indie vendors, I've decided to give the Glade melts a bit more attention. I enjoy the Glade candles, but often skip the tart versions. Even though I'm not generally a floral fan, something about this called to me. Maybe because it's peony, and a 'famous' peony garden is in my hometown, and peonies are a huge part of my childhood? Maybe because it's a new scent from Glade? Maybe because I had a coupon? lol - Who knows?
I found this to be quite a nice change of pace type scent for me. It is floral-y, no doubt about that, but there is enough of a cherry note to keep sweet and tolerable. It's funny too because while melting this, roses kept coming to mind and I'd have to remind myself 'No, it's peony.' Well sure enough, when I looked up the scent description to prep for this post, it mentions roses in there. This was a bright fruity-floral scent without being too perfume-y. After reading the notes, I realize there was indeed the tiniest hint of musk.
I melted one cube in my tea light warmer and had a light-medium scent. I usually like strong scents but sometimes lighter is better and I think this one works as a lighter, background scent, just something to softly perk up the air instead of something to scream 'Notice me!'
I'm not sure if I would buy this particular scent again.
