I have always been fond of fragrances, as you might have noticed by now. But this love for sweet smelling scents is not limited to just perfumes. I LOVE scented candles and reed diffuser immensely! Anything that makes my vicinity and surrounding smelling fresh and relaxing is my favorite. I cannot recall a time when I was out of reed diffusers, scented candles, air freshners etc. Running out of the previous reed diffuser, I got hold of one from my most favorite brand for such items - Crabtree & Evelyn. In the past I have used their home fragrance spray and scented candle (review) from the Iris Collection which were amazing. Every time someone entered my room they noticed how fresh and amazing it smelled. Off course, these fragrances are designed to create that unique ambiance around your home. This time around I picked Lavender (one of my favorite flowers) Reed Diffuser from Crabtree & Evelyn.
Let's talk a bit about the Lavender. Lavender is a beautiful flower. Since ancient times, Lavender has been used as a natural remedy in herbal and aromatherapy. People used to fill pillows with Lavender to promote sound sleep at night - thanks to the beautiful aroma. I have always been mesmerized by the beautiful shades of Lavender's small violet color flower. You must have come across those beautiful Lavender fields wallpapers - aren't these breathtaking! The essential oil of Lavender is so widely used in the production of perfumes, fragrances and skincare products. Depending on the type, Lavender essential oil can have a sweet or sharp aroma. For example, French Lavender has sweet aroma while Dutch Lavender has a stronger aromatic and sharp odor. As I write this post I am imagining an endless field of Lavender blooms on a mountainous land of the Mediterranean....
The story of Lavender..
" Let the scent of England's favorite floral transport you to the purple fields and sun-dappled meadows of summers. Lavender, long renowned for its calming effects, is the perfect thing to life your senses. Notes of sweet violet, sensual jasmine, tonka bean and musk delight and charm, whilst a whisper of lemon adds zest and energy. In short, soothing days of summer, distilled. "
Crabtree & Evelyn Lavender Reed Diffuser is a great choice for those who like a continuous stream of uplifting Lavender fragrance like myself, without the fuss of lighting wicks or pressing buttons. There are so many new gadgets out there in the market these days with fancy decor and advanced techniques. However for someone like me, placing the reed sticks in oil is a soothing experience which is unmatched. With some good spa music in the background, I can simply sit back, relax and enjoy the aroma. Lavender Reed Diffuser comes in a nice, very presentable packaging and makes a perfect gift as well. The box clearly mentions the collection name with light, almost watercolor-like illustration of the scent, Lavender in this case. The best part is the glass container. Its simple yet so classy! The container is secured tightly with a nob and has Crabtree & Evelyn written around the neck.
Without doubt Crabtree & Evelyn Lavender Reed Diffuser is an elegant way to scent your home. It definitely adds a dash of charm in your living space weather its your bedroom or guestroom. The packaging includes 10 wooden wicking reeds that can be rotated every now and then for a fresh hit of the scent. One bottle stays around 90 days but this can vary depending on the environment around you. I have noticed this these stay around for longer at my home than at office. Highly recommended, this is your perfect summer scent to lift the ambiance around you.
