Pura diffuser review

As a home editor, I've admittedly tried a lot of ways to make my home smell great. From endless candles tumbling out of my cabinets to small essential oil diffusers that I forget to turn on, I am constantly testing out new methods of adding aromas to my home. A clean, warm-smelling home is a happy one, and that is what I strive for.

I received a new diffuser (to me) by Pura, and because I've tried what feels like every candle/diffuser/the like that's out there, I was hesitant to try yet another diffuser for my home. But, after trying the Pura diffuser in my home for about a month, I can confidently say it is my new favorite form of adding scent to any room.

This smart fragrance diffuser houses two different scent pods that can switch on a rotation, based on your mood or whichever you would rather smell that day. This is easy-breezy via the Pura app—which is the coolest, sleekest part about this product for me.

A brief overview of using the Pura app to power up your diffuser: the diffuser comes with easy instructions about syncing it to Bluetooth, and from there, you are now connected to the device through the Pura app. The app is easy to use and comes with all kinds of great features, including the ability to label and manage devices in different rooms, check out the fragrance level remaining on each diffuser, and even set a schedule and intensity at which scents diffuse.

I have my diffuser set to alternate scents on days and take a break midday to conserve some of the scent. It has been well over a month of using the diffuser daily, and I am just now running low on the scent pods. Though I wish the pods would last a bit longer, I feel like the amount remaining is great for how long and often I keep them on throughout the day.

When it's time to refill your scents, the selection Pura offers is great. They have pods from some familiar scent masters like NEST New York, Capri Blue, Homesick, and even Disney—if you want your home to smell like Mickey's cozy cabin, you now have that option. There's also an option to subscribe to recurring delivery, which saves you 30% on scents (always a great bonus).

Though a traditional diffuser with essential oils is a great option, this is so hands-off and simplistic, which is why I love it. I don't have to constantly refill the diffuser myself—instead, it is automatically dispersing scent into my room, keeping it smelling amazing at all times. I am definitely going to continue using this device and trying out different scents. Maybe I'll add Mickey Mouse Chocolate Truffle to my next order.
