Happy Friday everyone! Friday has always been a bittersweet day for me. It means that it's the end of the week and I can finally enjoy my weekend; it also means Friday traffic! And I know that everybody agrees that Friday traffic is the worst! Well today, I decided to stay home. I've been out of the house the entire week and my energy's so low nowadays that I end up getting tired mid-day. So since I don't have any plans today, I decided to stay home, blog, edit a video and finally start packing my hospital bag.
With that said, I'm currently in my room enjoying the fragrance of a new product I recently discovered. Last Christmas, my aunt gave us Daphne Home Scents Diffuser by Bench. I felt like it was such a nice gift given I'm obsessed with a good smelling room.
Daphne Home Scents
Acres of Lavender
This was something different because I've been using candles for almost a year now in making sure that our home smells nice. I never really thought of trying diffusers. This set came with about 12 bamboo sticks and of course the scent of your choice. I like that it has a lot of sticks so that I can change it anytime I feel like the current sticks aren't working anymore. Great thing we got the lavender one because I've been thinking of purchasing a Lavender scented candle for the bedroom.
I decided to use just 1 set of bamboo sticks (6 pcs) and followed the instructions. It says to keep the sticks in the oil for about 20-30 minutes then flip it and it worked. I put it right above our bed where we have a shelf and the aircon hits it perfectly.
The Acres of Lavender smells really relaxing, I'd say the correct match for the bedroom. It was able to make my room smell really nice. The next days I didn't even have to flip the bamboo sticks anymore. I only did after about 2 or 3 weeks just to intensify the scent.
The only down side is that after a month, I've already finished 3/4 of it, whereas my candles last me for 2-3 months minimum. I think it's because it's always open and it's right across our aircon. I've tried moving it to another table but it doesn't smell as strong for obvious reasons.
I personally think that it's cheaper and more efficient to use candles but I know a lot of people who do not like using candles because of fire tendencies. If you're one who want to stay on the safe side, I think diffusers are the way to go. Even though they don't last as long, at least it's safer than candles. As for me, I'd probably give it another go. I would like to try another brand of diffusers just to be able to compare it with the one from Bench. :)
