Natural Reed Diffusers For Healthy Living
Add a beautiful aroma to your home with naturally scented diffusers: Pure, infused perfume oils are slowly released from the bundle of natural rattan reeds, permeating your living rooms with a sophisticated fragrance. Black reeds stand out from the norm but blend subtly into your home. Just place them into our Italian glass decanters. You may turn the reeds to increase the fragrance in your rooms.

Reed Diffuser Buying Guide - Part 1
What are they ? How do they work ?
Not all Reed Infusers are the same and can vary greatly in quality and consistency.
They consist of a bottle (or container) filled with a perfumed infusion and reeds, which in some cases (but not all) are natural rattan reeds.
All aroma diffusers fundamentally work the same way: the reeds draw the perfume infusion up the length of the reed from where the fragrance evaporates into the room.
There are three different types of fragrance liquid:
- The first generation liquids were essentially alcohol and perfume, similar to an 'eau de toilette'. Their main downside was that they evaporated too quickly (the alcohol is typically gone in less than a week !) and they were not very consistent over time. Today only older and cheaper scented diffusers still use this type of formulation.
- The second generation switched from a light & volatile alcohol to a 'heavier' alcohol that evaporates slowly. These heavy alcohols have recently come under scrutiny as they may damage the lungs when there is too much solvent in a home.
- Eliminating these harmful solvents was the drive behind the third generation of reed diffuser serums (or so called non-VOC liquids). PAIRFUM is one of the pioneers of this type of oil diffusers. This type of aroma diffuser is currently the best reed diffuser and what we recommend you choose.
How do you spot 1st or 2nd generation scented diffusers that are made using this combination of alcohol & fragrance oil ?
Here are some simple tests you can use before you decide:
- can you smell the distinctive odour of alcohol? This highlights a 1st generation diffuser.
- check the length of oil diffuser sticks / reeds supplied with the product. Long reeds usually mean 3rd generation.
- look at the number of reeds used. 10 x reeds or more indicates a diffuser of the 3rd generation.
Caution: as with all perfumes, reed infusers should at all times be kept out of reach of children and pets.
How do you regulate the fragrance intensity & longevity ?
The more reeds you use, the stronger the fragrance! In turn, the also means the perfume oil empties faster or your reed diffuser does not last as long.
This is especially the case where a room diffuser has been made using alcohol (1st generation) or a heavier alcohol (2nd generation).
These manufacturers try to extend the life-span of their products through:
- short reeds (approx 20 cm or 8 inches in length or shorter) are used in products that contain the alcohol / oil mix.
- a low the number of oil diffuser sticks / reeds being included in the pack (and in most cases this is 6 and under), is an indication of a method used by manufacturers when they wish to slow down evaporation.
To ensure best performance, PAIRFUM Reed Diffusers should be used with ALL of the 10 x extra-long reeds supplied in the pack.
Where to place your reed diffusers?
Room Diffusers work continuously and thereby lend themselves ideally to rooms such as the entrance hall, the bedrooms, the guest rooms, the bathrooms but also the kitchen and living room. Essentially, there isn’t a room where they are not suitable.
Pro Tip: One of the most important rooms in your home is your hallway ! It is the first room your visitors, friends and family come into contact with when they enter your home. It sets the tone for the rest of your house and yet we frequently forget to prominently display a sensory treat, like a reed infuser. Why not give it a try. You may be surprised at the result.
What to do for different room sizes ?
There are two approaches:
1. Vary the number of reeds you use in your Aroma Diffuser
For a smaller room you may wish to use less reeds for a pleasant, subtle fragrance.
Whereas a large room, such as your livingroom, will require that you use all of the included reeds to fully infuse the room with a scent.
2. Buy a small or large Scent Diffuser
Depending on the size of your rooms, you may buy a differently sized Reed Infuser.

Refill for Reed Diffuser? How to Refresh?
Over time, your reeds will clog up and become saturated with natural fragrance ingredients. This is not because these ingredients are of a lower quality. Instead, it is linked to evaporation, e.g. vanilla is crystalline and very slow to evaporate which in turn means it tends to block the porous channels of the diffuser sticks / reeds.
To give your home fragrance diffuser a new lease of life, simply replace your reeds with a fresh set and you will find that the fragrance will flow again.
Another tip is to turn the reeds over to refresh the fragrance in your room. Be careful though to wash your hands thoroughly after touching the saturated reeds and ensure that none of the reed diffuser liquid spills to damage your furniture, clothes, fabrics or any other material that may be affected by the high concentration of pure perfume oils.
Once your reed infuser bottle is empty, it is time to replenish it with a reed diffuser refill (or also called diffuser refill oil or simply refill oil). It is handy to keep a few in stock.
Pro Tip: When you treat yourself to a new refill, don’t forget to include a fresh set of diffuser sticks (also called diffuser reeds, rattan reeds, natural reeds, bamboo reeds).
Refilling a fragrance diffuser also offers two other opportunities:
- you can personalise your reed diffuser.
- you can mix the PAIRFUM refill oils to create a scent unique to your home.
How are Design Schemes & Colours influencing the choice of a room diffuser ?
This is where you come into your element, as a reed diffuser should blend with colour scheme in the room but it can also be used in the same fashion as you would place an accessory or set an accent (similar to an accent wall).
In this context, the colour of the reeds, the bottle, the collar and the liquid, should either be neutral so that they can fit in to many different design schemes (especially important when you give an aroma diffuser as a gift) or the direct opposite, in that they match your specific colour scheme.
How do the Seasons or Special Occasion play when choosing a reed infuser ?
Similar to the decorations you use in your home depending on the season (spring, summer, autumn, winter) or the special occasions throughout the year (Christmas, Valentine, Mother’s Day, Easter, Halloween, …), you may wish to fragrance your house accordingly.
This may lead you to light, fresh fragrances for the Summer and heavier notes for Winter, a ‘rose’ fragrance around Valentine or spicy notes for Christmas.
Pro Tip: As most of us expect ‘longevity’ from their reed diffuser, it is important to keep in mind that the fragrance you choose, will have to be suitable for multiple seasons or occasions and you may wish to avoid a scent which is too specific. You may tire of a Christmas spice fragrance when the first signs of Spring burst into life.
What is the purpose of the room ? What is the mood ? In which context will you enter the room ?
Are you looking for a calming fragrance for your bedroom which helps you to sleep or would you prefer something energetic for the morning in the bathroom?
What atmosphere or mood would you like your home to radiate when you come back in through the door?
What feeling would you like to express? Should it be happiness, relaxation or comforting?
Choose your fragrance diffuser accordingly and refer to our perfume guide for inspiration.
