This is my last review from the batch of scented goodies, and it’s for Demeter Fragrance Cinnamon Bun Atmosphere Diffuser Oil*. It’s actually been quite awhile since I reviewed the other Demeter products, but I really wanted to give this one a full chance and by now I feel like it’s had one.
While the other Demeter Fragrance products I reviewed (click here to check them out) were colognes, Demeter Fragrance Cinnamon Bun is an Atmosphere Diffuser Oil, which is basically a container of scented oil that you put reeds in and it makes your room smell all kinds of lovely. At least, that’s the plan.
Now, first off, my complaint is actually with the scent. It’s probably pretty obvious if you read my other fragrance reviews but I love yummy, bakery smells, and Demeter Fragrance Cinnamon Bun is definitely ones of those. It manages to perfectly combine spicy cinnamon, sugar, and even the icing you would get on a cinnamon bun. Delicious!
The problem might be that Demeter Fragrance Cinnamon Bun isn’t a super strong scent, but I don’t usually have much success with reed diffusers sadly, I generally go for candles or room sprays instead. I did not find this made my entire room smell. However, I have a really big living room/kitchen/open concept, so I moved it to the bathroom instead. There’s was a hint of a scent, but it definitely wasn’t to the level I expected, and my boyfriend thought a couple of the reeds were going a bit moldy so we tossed those ones out and moved it back to the living room instead.
I could imagine this might work in a small room, and it’s really long lasting. I’ve had mine for over a month and there’s only a small dent gone. At this rate it’ll probably last at least half a year (and maybe that’s part of the problem and it’s not dispersing enough of the oil into the air at a time, though like I said, I’ve had this problem with other brands too.) That said, although Demeter Fragrance Cinnamon Bun Atmosphere Diffuser Oil is not for me, the scent definitely is and I recommend checking it out as I think it would be great for the holidays.
How do you find reed diffusers? Do you like them more than I do?
