When it comes to home fragrance, I've always been a flowers and freshly brewed coffee kind of a woman but today my bathroom is enveloped (as I believe the perfume people say) in the fresh scent of Lime Basil and Mandarin courtesy of a Jo Malone Diffuser. I had never used a diffuser before so it took me a while to work out that the bundle of black sticks I discovered nestling in the bottom of the presentation box were, in fact, diffusing reeds designed to be artfully arranged in the neck of the bottle. The look is a bit hotel chic for my rather utilitarian bathroom but the smell is quite wonderful.
Jo Malone's Scent Surround Diffusers cost £45 and will be available from April. www.jomalone.com
