want to buy some air freshener type things for the house and dont mind spending a bit - thought about something from Jo Malone? what would people recommend? I want something noticeable but not overpowering, want to have the kind of house that you walk into and think 'oh that smells nice'. we have a non-smelling house at the mo, no pets/smokers, just a house that smells of not much! (so dont need anything specifically designed to mask nasty smells is what I am trying to say). TIA
I don't use air fresheners generally as they contain quite nasty ingredients. However, I do use Body Shop's reed diffusers and also have an aroma stone, which runs off mains and is like an essential oil burner without the tea light. That means I can leave it running all day and just top up the essential oil when needed.
I was given the Jo Malone lemon linen spray, which is nice and fresh and I occasionally spray it around the bedroom and living room. But generally air fresheners remind me of bathrooms, and not in a good way...
I like Wax Lyrical lavender reed diffuser, just a subtle waft of lavender as you walk past. You can only smell it when you get within a few feet of it though, won't fill the house, that's probably true of all reed diffusers though.
