The Sanctuary Sparkling Bergamot Fragrance Diffuser was recieved as a late birthday gift off my friend along with other pampering goodies. It comes packaged in a lime green box with a pattern of birds and plants with a transparent section to view the item in question, the glass vase and in the right hand corner 12 reeds. Instructions and warnings are mentioned on the back of the box along with a picture of how it should look.
The glass vase itself has the same pattern of the birds and plants on and is transparent. It has a plastic stopper which you have to remove. Ok, it took me two days to figure out how to remove the stopper, infact I was gona give up on it or maybe ring my friend as a last resort. The idea is to slip a flat somewhat pointy object just under the lid such as my hair clip to yank it open as soon as its half way out the vase its easy to get out. Suppose the good thing about it is that it was well packaged so it was unlikely to leak at all.
There are about 12 reeds which look like thin cylinder wooden sticks and are to be arranged in the vase so that they absorb the oil. I have only had this for a week and it still fills the air with fragrance. The idea is for the fragrance to evaporate into the air through the porous reeds, and to turn the stems at certain times until all the oil has gone.
The fragrance itself smells fruity, it is made up of bergamot, lemon, orange and exotic yuzu. Unsure what bergamot actually was I found out it was a small fragrant citrus fruit. Definately smells fruity but gives off a unusual scent unlike any citrus fruit I know of. At first I found the fragrance over powering as the reeds starting absorbing it but now it's not so bad, it just leaves the room smelling nice, refreshing and somewhat relaxing.
While reviewing this item I found out that it costs around £14.99 so hopefully it lasts a long while. Overall It was a fantastic gift to recieve.
