Having the home smelling nice is a huge thing for me as it is for a lot of people. I love nothing more than to walk into a room with a nice aroma wafting up my nose, clean and fresh and welcoming.
I was gifted a few Wax Lyrical GiftScents Reed Diffusers to try and I really could not wait for them to arrive.
GiftScents were inspired by traditional greeting cards, and their GiftScents collection enables you to choose the occasion, personalise the ‘To’ and ‘From’ sections with a personalised message, and gift an expertly blended Wax Lyrical reed diffuser in a specially designed gift box…guaranteed to make anyone’s day.
I was pleasantly surprised when they did come because they were each in their own gift box with a section to put to whom it is for or to place a sticker if you wish. I thought this was a lovely touch in itself.
Upon opening the box I chose randomly, there was a beautifully presented box You’re A Star box, with lovely wording on the front. For instance;
‘HAVE I EVER TOLD YOU…
You’re a star!’
It had a flap that you can open like a card and you can write out the ‘to’ and ‘from’ details in.
Inside the box is a 50ml reed diffuser along with 5 reeds. The bottle has a label in it with ‘You’re a star!’ Or with whatever the theme of the GiftScents is, for example Celebrate, Thank You Teacher and Good Luck. However there are lots of different themes on the website to choose from.
When you open the bottle there is a coated card that you pop out of the lid, you then replace the lid and pop a reed or two into the bottle. When you have finished with it you can replace the coated card and pop the lid back on to save any spillages, which I have had to do in the evenings to stop the cat knocking it over.
All of the GiftScents I received had the same scent, a fresh fruity fragrance with hints of green apple and grapefruit on a base of flowers and musk. I must say that I could definitely smell the green apple with a hint of grapefruit, however it wasn’t an in your face scent, it was very gentle and smelt gorgeous. I liked it even more because green apple is a favourite scent of mine.
Currently I have the You’re A Star reed diffuser and the Celebrate reed diffuser being used in my house, one is in the living room and one is on the landing upstairs.
I like them because I can move them around if and when I want to without any hassle that I would get with plug ins and wax warmers which I use a lot but they have to stay where they are because they use plugs.
I can also put them high up and out of reach of my toddler which again I cannot do with other things that I may use to make my home smell nice.
They are small and convenient and I am very impressed.
All in all I am very impressed by the GiftScents reed diffusers, I love the smell, love the packaging and label and everything about them. They make a fantastic thoughtful gift for birthdays, driving tests, for loved ones, teachers and more.
I also think they are fantastic value at just £7.99 each, I would definitely purchase them in the future as gifts for friends and family.
