As much as we love a scented candle, if you really want your home to smell like a spa or boutique hotel, it’s all about an electric diffuser. Filling your space with delightful scents at the touch of a button, they leave a longer lasting fragrance and, thanks to the lack of naked flame, are a safer option if you cohabit with small people or animals.
We use ours to pump out uplifting scents in the morning and calming ones before bed or when we feel stressed – I even took my This Works travel one to the labour ward with me – and, just as you can splash out on a Diptyque candle or bag a Hotel Collection bargain at Aldi, there’s an electric diffuser for every budget. Neom’s Wellbeing Pod gets rave reviews, but at £95, it’s at the spendier end of the scale. I have the Mini version, and can confirm it’s more powerful than you’d expect for the size. I love that you don’t need to plug it in, but the vibrating sound slightly kills the at-home spa vibe.
Another bestseller is The White Company’s Scandi-style ceramic diffuser. There are plenty of 5-star reviews to justify the £65 price tag, but if that’s still more than you want to spend, may we point you in the direction of Asda’s £18 dupe? Oliver Bonas is another go-to for chic diffusers – in sage green or printed with swirls, they double up as ornaments you’d proudly have on show. The best thing is that you can use any oils inside, so even if you go budget on your diffuser, you can go bouji with the scents – Neom’s are our fave.
From Asda to Oliver Bonas, here are the best electric diffusers to buy now…
