Which ones do people love? Am looking to buy one which actually scents the room! Thank you! xx

I love Marmalade of London's Cashmere & Cocoa, and Designer's Guild's Wild Fig.

Everyone's taste is different though - you need to test them out!

It's more just brands that actually work!

as a pp said, Next are really good for scent pay-off. As are Rituals, they last for ages (+ gorgeous scents).

I have a Next one that lasted for ages & did make the room smell.

I am obsessed with reed diffusers at the moment. I love Neom and the scent pay-off is great but they don't last that long, I got one for Xmas and put it out straight away and there's not much left now. Also love MySenso (German brand I think) gorgeous smells and scent pay-off but again only lasted about a month! I went round and sniffed all the ones in Next the other day as I keep hearing they are good but I didn't like any. Will try Rituals next.

My jo Malone one doesn't really smell the room to be honest, I'm not impressed, however I got given a white company one and it does a great job.

I was going to suggest Next, thinking I'd be alone amongst people recommending very expensive ones!

So yes, Next ones are good value compared to the cheapest and most expensive ones. They last ages and give off a good amount of fragrance.

I have a Yankee candle hasn't lasted more than three weeks. I will try the next ones now.

Laura Ashley are the only ones I've found that last any time. Expensive full price but £10 or so in the sale, less for the Christmas ones.

I just bought a pear scented one which was inexplicably sold as a Christmas scent but isn't Christmassy at all, just a nice fragrance.

Another vote for Next from me!

I got a Next one as a present, and yes, it strongly scents the room - but not in a good way!

Burntbum Wed 25-Jan-17 16:44:15

Laura Ashley ones last ages and are the only ones I've tried that I can actually smell when I walk in the room. I bought a pear one at Christmas which is absolutely gorgeous but all sold out now.

I've got Next "New York" and I can hardly smell it, much prefer Yankee reed diffuser in either vanilla lime or lemon lavender.

I just bought an ultrasonic humidifier/diffuser for DD's bedroom. Bought so that we could keep her congestion free and when she is having trouble sleeping put a bit of lavender in there. Its cheaper than using the plug in night light and pads that we were using before.

But I'm so pleased with it I'm going to be buying more so that I can mix my own essential oils and have exactly the scent I like and at the strength I like. They are a bit fiddly as you do have to clean them weekly and top up the water bath quite a bit with continuous use but I'm in love.

Ooh this reminds me of a weird ceramic thing we used to have on a radiator when I was little, with like a coat hanger on top and you hang it from the top of the radiator, fill with water (and oils presumably) and it was like a humidifier? That might work well in the winter when the hearings on!

I've had a couple of good Dorma ones from Dunelm that actually scented a room and lasted for a good while. I tend to buy refills now, for the gazillions of empty bottles and reeds I have accumulated in my quest for a nicely scented house. Sainsbury's one seems to last well and the smell carries - it's in my hallway with good air circulation.

I have a Marks and Spencer's one and it hasn't lasted that long. When are you meant to change the reeds? i turn them upside down but am wondering if I should put new ones in instead.

I got a Fired Earth one for Xmas (think they are quite expensive). Smells lovely but I don't think it is going to last long.

I got a couple in Tesco reduced to £4 which seem ok. I'm not sure what brand they are.

White company and branche d'olive have a good balance of plenty scent and lasting power

Osprey and Rituals ones are lovely. Next are long lasting, Jo Malone not so much.
