Air Wick Reed Diffuser
Advantages: Works better than most air fresheners, nice scents
Disadvantages: Expensive at full price
When I was looking for some new air fresheners recently I came across these Air wick Reed Diffusers on offer at £3 each in Morrisons so I decided to give them a try. I bought 2 different scents - mulled wine and cinnamon apple, and cool linen and white lilac.
They come in a card box which holds the diffuser securely and has instructions printed on it. The diffusers look really nice in my opinion, I find the design quite simple and elegant and I think they'd fit in with any decor. The diffuser is basically a little glass vase full of liquid and little coloured balls, the colour depending on which scent you've chosen.
You need to set up the diffuser first of all, which is simple, you just need to unscrew the cap and remove the seal from the top of the vase then screw it back on again. Then you just pop in the rattan stems which are supplied with it, making sure they're spread out.
The diffuser works because the rattan stems act like a wick, drawing up the fragrance and releasing it into the air. So you just need to place it on a flat surface and leave it to work it's magic. I find the fragrance is nice and strong, but not overpowering, and it is released very quickly after setting up the diffuser. As time goes by you can see the level of liquid in the diffuser dropping as the fragrance is drawn up and released into the air.
The scent is diffused evenly around the space and I find it really does make the room smell lovely. I did have one of the diffusers on the mantelpiece in my living room which is right next to the desk where my laptop is and I found it did give me a bit of a headache after sitting so close to it for a while so I had to move it, but other than that it really is lovely.
I have the mulled wine and cinnamon apple one in my living room which is open plan to my hall and kitchen and even though they are all quite large room the fragrance is noticeable in all three rooms. I also found that after having it in my living room for a while my coat, which is hung up in the hall, smelled of the air freshener, so that just shows how strong the scent is! It is a really warm, spicy scent which I love so much and it makes my house seem very homely.
I have the cool linen and white lilac one in the bathroom ad it keeps the room smelling fresh and clean. I was a little worried it might be overpowering in such a small room because it is quite strong, but it's actually just perfect.
I've had these for over a month now and although the scent is not as strong as at first I do still notice the scent when I come into the room. I think these are great and at £3 are great value for money, but I'm not sure I'd pay over £6 for them, which is their usual price, so I'll be looking out for them coming on offer again.
Summary: Lovely, strong, and long-lasting fragrance
