Everyone on the Internet is talking about “good vibes only”. For me, good vibes come in the form of a cosy room I’d want to go home to after a long day at work. There are lots of things you can do to make your room more welcoming, but for me, I found that diffusers work wonders.

I started putting diffusers in my room about two years ago and they’ve been a mainstay on my bedside table ever since. Scent has always been important to me, and I especially like the fresh citrusy notes of bergamot.

Which is why the HYSSES Home Scent Bergamot Frankincense, $49.90, is a winner not only for CLEO Body Awards 2019, but also for me.


Smells like a dream

This diffuser makes snuggling in my bed and enjoying some me-time a much more enjoyable experience as the bergamot notes have a soothing effect that calms my nerves after a long day at work. FYI, bergamot also helps to relieve tension and make you sleep better.

Apart from a high concentration of bergamot, this diffuser is also infused with lemongrass, which boasts similar benefits.

I also love the sleek packaging of this home scent, which goes with the decor in my room. I like minimalist designs, so the fact that it doesn’t draw too much attention while sitting atop my bedside table is a plus for me.

If you’re looking for a reed diffuser with a super subtle scent (but why would you, honestly?), this is not the diffuser for you. I, on the other hand, love the fact that the scent fills my whole room so my bedroom smells like a dream every time I enter.

And honestly, for the price, it’s quite a steal because diffusers generally last a long time. For added convenience, you can go for the bigger 150ml and 450ml sizes so you won’t have to replace it as often.

Fuss-free and long-lasting

Unlike other room scents that might require you to regularly top up water or burn a candle, I like the fact that this one is hassle-free. All I have to do is flip the reed sticks every one to two weeks to ensure the scent remains 10/10. I don’t even have to replace them regularly as the rattan reeds can last up to four months.

While aroma diffusers aren’t a necessity, I think they’re a worthy investment because they really make a difference in how you feel every time you enter your room. As I’m typing this, I have the diffuser in my room and I can’t wait to get good vibes when I enter my room tonight.
