As the weather warms and we move towards spring, I can't wait to get out of the doldrums of winter. Bright colors and beautiful scents are a wonderful way to set the tone for the coming season and to brighten your mood too. I tried out the NEW Atmosphere Collection Fine Home Fragrance by Glade®,  a new collection of curated and artisanal scents designed by world-renowned fragrance designer Ann Gottlieb. I also designed four inspirational watercolor prints that you can pair with your favorite scents. Transform your home's atmosphere with sight and scent just in time for spring!

Besides just making your home smell beautiful, scents can invoke an emotional response. A lavender candle may make you feel relaxed, while a sugar cookie scent may comfort you. More complex scents can evoke more complex emotions and memories, giving your home a unique atmosphere that's all your own. Your home is a blank canvas; What will you paint? What colors will you use? What does it feel like?

The new home fragrances from Glade® are premium products at a not-so-premium price. They come in four unique, intricately layered fragrances that will completely transform the feel of your home.

These high-end scents come in both a soy-based Jar Candle and PlugIns® Scented Oil, so you can choose whether you want occasional or continuous fragrance. 

I died over the watercolor packaging! I thought it was so gorgeous, I wanted to recreate it as a decor piece to go with the candles, so I created an inspirational quote watercolor for each candle to match the beautiful packaging and (I hope) captures the essence of each scent. Use it as a way to add beauty to your space.

Without further ado, here are the new artisanal scent creations:

N°1 Enraptured™ 
Feels like enchantment and features the charming and complex scents of jasmine, lady apples, and sweetheart rose petals on a base of cedar wood. Dream away with this beautiful scent while taking a long, hot bath. My absolute favorite!

N°2 Bright™ 
Feels like innocence and will take you back to the days when you were carefree. Featuring playful sun warmed pears and sweet pea flowers, it's a fresh scent that will fill your home with floral bliss.

N°3 Free™ 
Feels like freedom and is as carefree as a bikini and as sweet as a long weekend off. It's a great candle to enjoy when you want to bring a bit of the seaside to your home. Starfruit, beach woods, and coconut create a heady, creamy cocktail. Light this candle and escape.

N°4 Tempted™ 
Feels like seduction. With scents of patchouli and amber, it's the perfect candle to light to set the mood for romance. Velvety and inviting; It's a kiss that envelops your room.

You can find the entire collection at Kroger stores, so no need to make an extra trip to a specialty store; You can find premium scents during your regular grocery trips. Find out more about the new collection here. Choose your favorites, then print the watercolor quotes linked below.

Print the pdfs and frame them for a lovely decor piece that will pair perfectly with your favorite scents.

How to frame your prints!


  • color printer
  • 8.5" x 11" heavy cardstock
  • 8" x 10" frame
  • pencil and scissors OR Exacto knife


1. Print out the desired watercolor quote at "do not scale" or 100% on a thick, matte cardstock.

2. Remove the glass from the frame and center it over the print on a flat surface.

3. Use the pencil to trace around the glass and cut the print out with scissors or use an Exacto knife to cut around the glass over a self-healing mat.

4. Secure the print and backing in the frame without the glass. This will make your print look like a higher-end decor piece.

I am absolutely enchanted by N°1 Enraptured. I think it perfectly captures the floral and woody scents that I love to surround myself with. Sweet, but with a woody base that draws the floral down from being too sweet. It's absolutely perfect for the laid-back, happy mood I like to evoke in my own home. 

I hope you enjoy the new collection from Glade® as much as I did and have fun creating an evocative atmosphere in your own space that is uniquely you. Every room tells a story. What's yours?
