Luxury candles are incredibly chic and we love them. But they cost a pretty penny and don't last very long. The best reed diffusers, on the other hand, can be more purse-friendly and last for a lot longer. We're talking months, rather than hours.

Much like a candle, reed diffusers give off the most stunning scent that can fill a room - creating ambiance and setting a mood. They are also very smart-looking. Gone are the days of unattractive jewelled bulb vases with questionable fragrances, in their place comes a whole raft of beautifully designed bottles filled with the finest juices.

So if you're thinking about investing in some home scent for this time of year - winter and Christmas is the perfect time to fill your home with rich smells - then keep scrolling for our roundup of the best reed diffusers the market has to offer.
