A while ago, thanks to my day job, I got the chance to try out a reed diffuser by the Irish company Voya so I thought I'd share my impressions.
Living, as we do, with a dog and a cat, I occasionally wonder if we may have become immune to pet odours and worry that visitors might not be enchanted with eau de wet dog.
Therefore, despite our best efforts to keep the house hygienically clean, I sometimes find myself lighting scented candles before visitors arrive.
For some unknown reason, I never got round to using reed diffusers before so I was interested in finding out just how effective they would be.
Voya is a company based in Co Sligo on the Irish west coast who have branched out from the traditional family enterprise of seaweed baths (which still operate in Strandhill) to producing natural organic beauty and lifestyle products.
The Oh So Scented reed diffuser comes in attractive packaging with the company's distinctive seaweed logo.
The frosted glass bottle is discreet with a wooden top to hold the reeds although I did find it quite difficult to get the plastic stopper out.
The scene combines lemon and basil notes and six week after placing it in our living room, I can still notice a distinctive citrus aroma, and I'd guess there's three quarters of the bottle left.
At €40, it's not cheap but I will probably be tempted to buy another diffuser when this one is finished.
