For the kitchen

The kitchen can be a tricky room to pick a fragrance for, with so many scents being created on the daily, it can seem like a big task to maintain a pleasant smell. That’s why we’d recommend choosing a diffuser. Easily placed on your window sill, it will continue to disperse your chosen scent with minimal effort. When it comes to the kitchen, choose a diffuser with a citrus scent to bring a fresh aroma and neutralise any lingering smells from last nights dinner. For hints on mandarin, bergamot and lemongrass choose from the selection below.

For the bathroom

Reed diffusers are also a great addition to bathrooms for both style and scent. We’d recommend opting for a light breezy and neutral fragrance for your bathroom like this Skandinavisk island solitude reed diffuser. Inspired by the solitude of the islands, lakes and forests of Scandinavia, it combines notes of of driftwood, white flowers and greenery.

Candles
