There’s nothing better than walking through a door into a wonderful smelling room. It makes everything feel fresh. It probably even puts you in a better mood. But with humans and pets and food and garbage all around the house, it’s not always easy to keep your space smelling like daisies. Especially since our homes may now function as offices, restaurants, gyms, and all-around primary hang spots, it’s likely that the not-so-great smells are building up.
Sure, candles are lovely if you’re looking to release some sweet scents, but they just mask the other smells and you’d burn through them far too quickly if they were lit all the time. Drug store air fresheners also tend to mix with other odors rather than eliminate them. If you’ve faced these dilemmas, it’s probably time to branch out into other home fragrance products that are more effective and longer-lasting.
No matter what room you want to freshen or what sort of scent you’re looking for, there is surely something on this list that will get you to your desired fragrance. From reed and electric diffusers to air purifiers with essential oils to some highly functional room sprays, we’ve got you covered with all sorts of home fragrance options.
1. Pura Smart Home Fragrance Device
Home fragrance products have gotten a lot more high-tech. This smart home fragrance diffuser can be controlled from the convenience of your smartphone, where you can customize your scent experience with premium fragrances that fill up to 1000 square feet. You just plug it into an outlet and use the app to set a scent schedule or put it on away mode, adjust the scent intensity, swap between two different fragrances or turn on an LED ambient nightlight. It’s also affordable, kid and pet-friendly, and they’ve partnered with brands like Nest and Apotheke for tons of designer scent options.
2. Jo Malone English Pear & Freesia Diffuser
Jo Malone is an iconic name in scents. Their perfumes, candles, and bath and body products are all so perfectly, deliciously scented, so why wouldn’t you want those same smells to fill a room? This option is definitely a splurge as far as reed diffusers go, but the light yet intoxicating designer fragrance of pear and white freesia will make you forget how much you spent.
3. PARTU HEPA Air Purifier
This is a great option if you’re looking for an air purifier that also emanates lovely scents. The three-stage filtration system is powerful enough to capture dust, pollen, smoke, odor and pet dander as the first step in making your home smell better. It also includes a fragrance sponge where you can add a drop of your chosen essential oil and the fragrance will start to flow with the air movement. You can place this compact little system with thousands of 5-star reviews in any room to inhale fresher, better-smelling air.
4. URPOWER Aroma Essential Oil Diffuser
BEST FOR ESSENTIAL OILS
You’d never guess that this little machine had crazy fast ultrasonic diffusing technology that breaks water and essential oils into extremely fine micro-particles without using heat, which is apparently better to maintain the integrity of the essential oils’ molecular structure. This also means it functions as a humidifier with the capacity for continued use for up to eight hours. Just choose an essential oil for a mood boost or stress relief, and this handy diffuser will remove other odors while filling your space with your preferred scent.
5. Happy Wax Outlet Wax Melt Warmer
BEST CANDLE ALTERNATIVE
If you like candles and want a similar but more sustainable home fragrance product, this flameless plug-in wax melter may be the way to go. It comes in several color and design options to match any room, creates a nice warm glow and lets you enjoy all-natural fragrances throughout your home. Just power on, add your desired scented wax and let the melting begin. Reviewers also love this particular wax melt because of the dishwasher safe removable silicone melting dish that allows quick and clean removal of used wax.
6. Aesop Aromatique Room Spray Trio
BEST ROOM SPRAY
Drugstore air fresheners may have deterred you from trying room sprays as your go-to home fragrance product, but if there are any that will convert you, it’s these options from Aesop. Though each of the three in this bundle is made up of a very unique and refreshing combination of scents, they’re all intended to calm your mind and lift your mood. Spray two to three pumps in any given space and the aroma will last for several hours. Plus, you can always add an extra spritz as needed.

7. Lemongrass Succulent Diffuser
This petite ceramic oil diffuser is disguised as a succulent on a wooden base. You’d never know from looking at it that it was actually adding a delicious scent to your space. Since it’s so aesthetically appealing, it’s the perfect option to keep out in the open on your bedside table or desk. It also comes with a bottle of lemongrass essential oil for a serene and tranquil fragrance experience, but you can use the scented oil of your choosing when that one runs out.
8. Diptyque Fig Tree Scented Oval
BEST FOR SMALLER SPACES
Diptyque is another trusted name in home fragrance products, and this lovely fig-scented oval lives up to the hype. It’s perfect to hang in your dresser, closet, or on a door handle for a burst of freshness every time you’re reaching for clothes or entering the bathroom. It’s just a scented wax oval framed by a white ceramic ring on a rope, yet somehow it slowly emits your chosen scent quite effectively. It also looks clean and classes whereve it’s hung.
