Review Summary:

A fresh, clean scent that makes it smell like you've been doing laundry all day long!

I’ve been needing to freshen things up a bit, so I dug out these Glade wax melts I picked up some time ago from my local Walgreen’s. The scent? Clean Linen. Perfect! glade-clean-linen-wax-melts-candles

The melts came in a large, rectangular package of eight individual cubes of light blue wax. The packaging indicates that the total weight is 3.1 ounces. The package label is varying shades of blue, mostly a light blue. There is a laundry basket on the front full of fluffy white towels. The cold sniff on these melts was crisp and clean – not perfumey at all. I was expecting to be bowled over, but the fragrance was a bit more gentle and quite fresh.

The classic scent of line-dried laundry gets a modern twist of sunny citrus. The familiar feeling of clean comfort makes home feel even cozier.

This was a great scent once melting. It was so fresh and clean and did not have a fake detergent-y kind of smell. This scent was light and airy but it filled a large living space easily. It did smell like I had been doing laundry all day! I did not get the citrus notes that were mentioned – at least I was not able to pick them out individually. I notice that I am not able to melt/burn several “laundry” type scents because they become too perfumey or smell too much like a harsh detergent. I really didn’t get that from this scent. It was pleasant enough that I was able to keep it in my melters for several hours throughout the day – I kept getting this burst of freshness whenever I entered the room! I used a 24W electric warmer and the scent throw was fabulous without being overbearing.

Overall, this was a scent I did enjoy and I would purchase these again.

Have you tried the Glade wax melts? What do you think?

Happy candle burning ~

  1. Good to know – that way I can expand my candle obsession into the scent aisle of Target LOL. I’ve gotten the Glade candles before, but haven’t tried the melts

    • Amy, I’ve had more success with their wax melts than their candles. But the research still continues… 😉

  3. Hi everyone! Hope your all having a great weekend! I have tried Glade melts and love em!! I have even tried Clean Linen. I am partial to laundry smells and like you said it is fresh and clean. I have also tried Fall Hayride, to manish and overpowering for me.I have also tried Cashmere Woods and really liked it, Pumpkin Spice, it was ok your typical pumpkin smell, Apple Cinnamon really like it too. So for the price point I feel they are totally worth it! You get several melts and they do pack a punch.

  4. I had no idea Glade made any wax melts! I am about to be working on getting rid of that “new paint” smell in my home — these could be ideal for that.
