The Secret to Making Your Home Smell Divine

When it comes to décor, we're happiest about an enhancement that does double duty. In this case, it happens to be delightfully scented diffusers in the form of gorgeous glass, ceramic, and textured vessels, which add instant charm and an element of design to any space. While we'll never abandon our expertly curated candle collection, diffusers provide an alternate option when it comes to injecting a welcoming, refreshing, or even romantic scent into your space. They're also less dangerous (no open flames or supervision necessary) and are typically much longer-lasting. Diffusers also disperse fragrance throughout your home much more efficiently, and they look pretty darn good while doing it.

Since we love to set the mood or add ambiance to our abode with the perfect scent, we've rounded up a few of our favorite fragrances—from vanilla tobacco to French coastal islands—to introduce you to not only the best-smelling but the most attractive designs that will make your home smell, look, and feel divine. Shop a few of our favorite diffusers below.
