Fragrance often triggers memories and evokes emotions in all of us. I particularly sensitive to scents and thus adore the use of fragrances. Up til today, I can still remember clearly how the perfume my mum uses years ago smelt like. It was a scent which evokes happy memories of my childhood in my old house at Ghim Moh. Isn’t it interesting that a scent can affect your mood or the way you feel towards certain things?

The Impact of Scents

Even shopping malls like Ion Orchard have adopted the use of unique fragrance to make shoppers feel a certain way. Whenever you alight from the train at Orchard MRT station, do you notice that luxurious floral scent that wafted throughout the station? Does it make the place smells more ‘expensive’? Do you, perhaps, also feel more ‘expensive’ entering the mall?

Types of Home Fragrances

You can add that touch of luxury and elegance to your very own home by incorporating the use of home fragrances such as reed diffusers and scented candles. I personally prefer the use of reed diffusers as they are easier to maintain and safer to use as compared to scented candles. Occasionally, I would turn on my essential oil diffuser to freshen up the stale air in my room. However, essential oil diffusers require electricity to operate. Hence, I’ve been turning to reed diffusers instead.

Reed Diffusers by Farcent

The prices of reed diffusers can go as low as a few dollars to a hundred dollars. And there aren’t many reed diffusers which are reasonably priced. Not until I discovered the reed diffusers by Farcent, a Taiwanese brand of fresheners.

Their reed diffusers are affordably priced (below $15) and most importantly, they offer luxurious-smelling scents that are not so common in the market. I’ve tried it and I love the fined scent it diffused. It smelt expensive for sure.

This perfumed fresheners come in two forms : perfumed diffusers and perfumed sachets.

Perfumed diffusers

The perfumed diffuser bottle is shaped like a perfume bottle which adds a touch of elegance to your home decor. It comes along with 6 PET reed sticks which are found inside the box.

The diffuser is made up of a Japanese plant deodoriser that helps neutralise odours effectively. Thus, it not only introduce a pleasant scent to the surrounds but it also eliminates odour at the same time.

To use the diffuser, simply unscrew the gold bottle cap and unplug the plastic stopper. Insert the PET reed sticks into the opening of the bottle. You can adjust the number of reed sticks inserted based on how much scent you want to release.

For me, I used all six reed sticks since I will be placing the diffuser in my bedroom and I wanted the fragrance to be strong enough to permeate throughout the whole room.

The fragrance released from the perfumed sachets is obvious but not overwhelming too strong for our olfactory system to handle. I placed a sachet in my wardrobe so as to ‘perfume’ my clothes.

Which fragrance to pick?

All three fragrances smell great and it is certainly quite difficult to choose between the three. So why not try all and see which scent sticks with you better?
