I bought this reed diffuser about 3 weeks ago, I must say this is the nicest diffuser I have bought. The smell is more like vanilla but not to over powering. I have found that you still smell it anywhere in the room, unlike other diffusers where you need to be close to smell them. I have found cheaper brands that had a strong smell at the start but the smell did not last longer than 2 weeks, so far, this one is still scented and half full as shown in the picture. I will keep you all updated how it lasts as it gets near the end of the bottle.
