I'm obsessed with home fragrance. If you're a longtime reader, then you know that I occasionally review affordable home fragrance products here on the ol' blog. But you know what? It's been a while since I've been obsessed with a drugstore home fragrance product. And when I can't stop thinking about a $1 room spray, well you KNOW I have to tell you about it.
My drugstore home fragrance game hasn't been too strong lately. I haven't been keeping up with seasonal, limited edition collections from Glade, Fabreeze, Air Wick, etc. like I usually do. So when I stumbled across this new Glade Matcha Garden scent at my local Albertson's (grocery store chain here in San Diego), I was like, "MATCHA? Well lemme just add that straight to my cart." That was last week, and I've been obsessed with this room spray ever since.
How obsessed? Well here's a little convo I had with Mr. G the other day:
I cooked fish three days ago. There's no lingering scent here. Would ya stop spraying that, please??
To which I replied:
Huh? *sprays more* I can't hear you. *grins through a cloud of home fragrance*
To my nose, Glade Matcha Garden smells like green tea ice cream. If you've never tasted green tea ice cream (so, so sorry if that's the case!) then I can tell you that it has that wonderful, fresh, matcha green tea scent, along with the creaminess that you get with other ice creams. It's divine, and that's exactly how I feel about this Glade fragrance. There's a creamy sweetness here that mixes with the green tea. It's fresh, clean and slightly herbal, with just a hint of cream that balances things, to make it extra yummy.
Best part? Matcha Garden room spray is available at Target for just one dollar. As of the time of this post, you can't purchase it online but you can check the Target website here for a store locator. Also, you CAN purchase Matcha Garden in candle form, plug-in, and solid online here. I haven't tried those other forms yet, but I fully intend to.
And if you're more of an Amazon type of gal/guy, there are some options for you here as well.
Bottom line: this scent doesn't remind me of the usual drugstore room sprays. It's more interesting than your run-of-the-mill bathroom spray and whenever I spray it, I feel like I'm scenting my home with something far more expensive than a one-dollar product. Since this scent is limited edition (why???) I am going to stock up while I can. If you like green tea and you haven't tried this one yet, get to your local grocery, drug or big box store before this baby is gone forever. Give it a shot and get back to me!
