THE smell is one of the first things we notice when walking into someone’s house, which is why we’ve picked out the best diffusers for you to buy.
After all, it’s nice for guests to remember us for having a beautifully fragranced home – and nice for us too.
Which diffuser is the one to buy? It all comes down to personal taste and which scent is right for you.
Do you like sweet or floral? Or maybe a more musky, woody scent?
Not only is fragrance great for creating an ambience in your home (think orange and cinnamon at Christmas, or fruity numbers in the summer), but it can also help boost your mood and disguise any strong odours from the kitchen or pets, too.
If you’re not a fan of candles and don’t want to have to light your fragrance, then a reed diffuser is the perfect (and safer) option.
They use essential oils to continuously scent your home all day long and all you have to do is turn the rattan ‘reeds’ the other way up every few months, to keep the scent from wearing off.
The essential oil usually comes in a glass bottle, which are sometimes refillable and there’s lots of different sizes available. At first glance you may assume the small vessels won’t have a long-lasting fragrance, but trust us when they say these will keep your home smelling its best for months.
Not sure of a good one from a bad one? We’ve put all our attention into finding the best, quality diffusers around, so take your pick from this little lot and give yourself a clap on the back for making a great choice for you and your home.
Scent of Morocco
- Spa Maroc diffuser, £37 from The White Company – buy here
Inspired by the scents of Morocco, this luxurious scent has a rich, woody scent to it that’s deeply aromatic.
With notes of pink pepper, saffron and patchouli, blended with jasmine and sandalwood, it’s great for evoking the heady scent of spices from the street markets and cleansing fragrance of a Hammam spa.
Oh, and we love that you can use the ceramic vessel after – perhaps as a bud jar.
- Calm diffuser, £15 from Marks & Spencer – buy here
Most of us could do with a bit of calm in our lives, and this relaxing scent is one step in the right direction.
From the M&S apothecary range, this diffuser releases a perfect blend of lavender, sweet orange, clary sage and cedarwood to help keep you grounded.
The simplicity of the spa-like bottle is the perfect accompaniment for a tranquil home.
