good bathroom air fresheners

Ok. Share your preferences!
I need a new air freshener for my bathroom. I have a tiny bathroom.
The room doesn't smell, but I like a fresh whiff!

I've tried the traditional block one, and one that you tip to get a stronger scent.

But neither seem to last long, and, as I say, my bathroom is teeny.

Also, there is no plug socket in there, so plug in ones wouldn't work.

And, I don't like nasty spray ones! Though I have a nice essential oil one.

over and out I think you may be referring to reed diffusers. I really like reed diffusers, especially the ones Yankee Candle make.

The reed diffusers do work pretty well and they last for quite a while. They're not particularly strong but in a tiny room it probably would be.

Maybe you could try burning some incense/joss sticks.

Burning incense is a lovely way to make a room or your home smell lovely, I often burn incense, high quality incense will smell really lovely when burned :)

Thanks. :)

Unfortunately my accommodation doesn't allow candles/incense so that wouldn't work. But I might give reed diffusers a try if I can find a scent I like.

Reed diffusers are great! I love the air wick linen and 'something else' one.



I'm fine! Totally fine. I don't know why it's coming out all loud and squeaky, 'cause really, I'm fine!


Who else is fine?!?!?

Thanks all.

As far as I know there's not a Dunelm Mill near me.
Jenna, wouldn't pot pourri get kind of damp in a mini bathroom and go mouldy?!

I got some reed diffusers from Tescos, their own make. 'Mysterious Touch' which is cedarwood and bergamot, apparently, though basically it smells just floral. It's meant to last 6 weeks, but we'll see.

Wilkinsons have an online shop?

Well I'll be damned...



Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world. All things can be mended. Not with time, as they say, but with intention. So go. Love intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally. The broken world awaits in darkness for the light that is you.

What about some nice smelling soaps and stuff? Then you can use them and buy new ones with different smells. Bath bombs also usually have quite a strong smell that last a whole.

No Home Bargains near here that I know of, but I've only been here 2 and a half months so far!

Sam, I don't have a bath, just a shower, though I could just stick the bath bomb on a dish! [Though it might start to dissolve when the room gets steamy!]
