The Chinoiserie Diffuser

NEST New York Indian Jasmine Diffuser

I am a big fan of reed diffusers. They are especially wonderful in the hot summer when the the idea of a candle burning may not seem quite as appealing.

I love this NEST New York Indian Jasmine diffuser painted with a beautiful jasmine watercolor illustration. It reminds me of hand painted chinoiserie wallpaper. 

The scent is a classic floral - an intense jasmine absolute is surrounded by bright red berries, sparkling bergamot, and spicy pink pepper to create this opulent fragrance.

Expertly crafted with the highest quality fragrance oils, the diffuser releases an exquisite scent slowly and evenly into the air for approximately 90 days, delivering continuous fragrance, uninterrupted.

The intensity and reach of the fragrance can be customized based on the number of reeds used. One tip is to turn the reeds over every week or two.

I have even found it on a rare sale -

Another wonderful thing about diffusers is that they can be refilled with the same or another scent. For example, I have a beautiful Charlotte Moss pagoda diffuser that was discontinued many many years ago. I keep it my bedroom refilled with a favorite scent of mine, Seda France Japanese Quince.

Does anyone remember the Agraria Charlotte Moss diffuser? It was lily of the valley, rose, and jasmine and the crystal pagoda sits on a little silver tray. I wish she would bring this collection back!

I have ordered the NEST diffuser I have featured today and I know I will be keeping and refilling it for years to come as well.


  1. Beth, do you worry about fragrance oils near your pups? I’ve read that they can get seizures from the chemicals. I make my own heavenly room scents using pure essential oils, and I love the diffuser reeds too. Cheers!

    1. Passive diffusers like reed diffusers are considered completely safe around dogs because they rely on a natural process to disperse the scent gradually.

  2. Good question. Great answer. Thanks Beth.

  3. I use small crystal vases with a narrow neck as diffusers.
