Hopefully this characterization doesn’t offend my gender, but I think it’s at least partially safe to say that most women love a good air freshener. I, for one, adore a sweet-smelling space and have been looking to find a good way to customize the perfect fragrance to suit our tastes. We’re actually pretty big fans of incense as a way to control the everyday odors in our home (there’s a veritable orchestra of them, what with four pets under our roof), but since we can’t safely burn it all the time, I created my own DIY Reed Diffuser to take the reins throughout the rest of the day.
