Lately, I’ve found that my style revolves more around curating a mood than a certain aesthetic. I seek out peace, calm, and creativity in my environment—which means catering to all the senses, not just visual. That includes sounds, textures, and especially scents. I’ve been on an incense and candle kick for that reason. But diffusers always piqued my interest as well, especially after seeing beautiful designs pop up—from sleek stone options to playful mushroom shapes and more. 

So when I moved to New York last year, I decided to dip my toes in and finally give one a try—I was decorating from scratch, after all. The viral Vitruvi diffuser was at the top of my list, as it’s been on my mental vision board for years now. However, the hefty $100 price tag deterred me as I didn’t want to splurge quite yet on my first-ever diffuser. So, I scoured the internet for an equally stunning option without having to dish out a Benjamin. Lo and behold, I found the ENILYM Diffuser on Amazon, an almost exact dupe of the Vitruvi Stone Diffuser, for—wait for it—less than $30.

The piece has since become a staple of my room and routine. I’ll admit that I was a little worried about how the quality would hold up with what felt like a too-good-to-be-true price. However, it scores all the style points. Coated in a ceramic base, the material is earthy and grounding—with a naturally grainy stone texture that feels organic. Its curvy silhouette adds to the effect, the soft edges instantly soothing. This minimalist design, paired with the neutral pottery red colorway (which leans more brown than red), helps it meld seamlessly into my existing decor. Although, you can’t go wrong with any of the colorways—which include standard black, gray, and white tones that complement any palette.

The diffuser isn’t just a pretty face, though. It holds up functionally as well. While there are options for one, two, or three-hour run times, I’ve found that when put on the highest setting, the diffuser can run for over five hours. It emits a steady stream of mist from the tapered top, with minimal noise and no interruptions. My only complaint is that because my room is on the larger side, the scent is more subdued when I add essential oils.

On a lighter note (pun intended), the diffuser also has a strip that produces a soft glow of color. On the standard setting, it switches through various colors; however, you can also click through and choose one constant color— out of nine—if you have a preferred vibe. The light works independently of the misting effect, so I like using it as a nightlight sometimes, too.

The diffuser comes with a small pitcher, which comes in handy as it measures the exact amount of water needed to fill it up. As for maintenance, there are a few things to keep in mind. Since the cover is ceramic, I’m extra cautious about not getting oils on it so that they don’t stick to the surface; otherwise, it can stain. The inner canister also gets a bit grimy after a few uses with essential oils. It can be cleaned with a wipe or Q-tip in the crevices. But, that portion doesn’t detach from the electrical bits, so you have to be careful not to rinse it out or submerge it in water.

Ultimately, though, this diffuser was a great bang for my buck. It meets all the marks when it comes to functionality and style—doubling as chic decor even when I'm not using it. I love how easily it sets a soothing mood. In other words? It totally sets the mood.
