Glade’s fragrances have inspired budding designers and decorators from around the country to unleash their creativity in the Glade Inspirational Fragrances competition. The competition called for members of the public to design a unique room, inspired by one of Glade’s six selected scents, showcasing the influence that fragrance has on design.

A panel of judges selected the following finalists in the competition:
Janice Judd for Contemporary Closet inspired by the Clean Linen fragrance.
Bernadine Pretorius for Turning the Ordinary in the Extraordinary inspired by the Falling in Love fragrance.
Faraaz Mahomed for Lady Glade of Paris inspired by the Lavender fragrance.
Ashley-Shé Regal for Easy Living inspired by the Floral Perfection fragrance.
Nadia de Barros for Spring Fantasy Collection inspired by the Harmony fragrance.
Melanie Engel for Morning Dew inspired by the Morning Freshness fragrance.

“We are impressed by the high calibre of entries received and the talent displayed by up-and-coming designers,” says Glade Marketing Manager Michelle Cloete. “It is inspiring to see the different ways in which fragrance influences design. The entries clearly showcased that fragrance plays an important role in creating the atmosphere of a room and that it does transform your house into a home.”

The overall winner will receive a cash prize of R20,000. Members of the public are invited to engage their senses at the Glade Inspirational Fragrances Sensorium - the life-size exhibition of these top entries.  From an indoor garden and dining area to a very special bathroom and closet, the Sensorium will inspire you to unleash your creativity in your own home.

The Glade Sensorium visits KwaZulu-Natal early next year when it will run at the Pavilion from  KZN: January 16 to 20.
