What we've been really pleased to discover is that John Lewis have offers on quite a few of the all-time favourites from our best reed diffusers buyer's guide. These are all classy, high-quality fragrances well worth checking out; browse out top picks from the sale below. 

Skandinavisk Skog Forest Reed Diffuser | £40

Skandinavisk Skog Forest Reed Diffuser | £40 £36 at John Lewis & Partners 

Easily our favourite home fragrance for the cold season, and we adore it in both diffuser and candle format. The resinous sweetness or real pine! Will trick you into believing there is a Christmas tree in your house already, and when you do get one, it'll complement the natural fragrance beautifully. 

Neom Organics London Real Luxury Reed Diffuser, 100ml | £38 £30.40 at John Lewis & Partners

Neom Organics London Real Luxury Reed Diffuser, 100ml | £38 £30.40 at John Lewis & Partners

A great home fragrance for any season, Real Luxury is a powerful blend of 24 essential oils, with lavender, jasmine, and rosewood being the most prominent notes. Relaxing, completely natural, and yes, luxurious. A great bedroom scent. Neom are against animal testing and don't use synthetic ingredients. 

Molton Brown Gingerlily Aroma Reeds, 150ml | £45

Molton Brown Gingerlily Aroma Reeds, 150ml | £45 £38.25 at John Lewis & Partners

Another top pick from our buyer's guide, the Gingerlily will delight anyone who loves tuberose, with its unmistakable creamy, tropical fragrance. But, there is a twist – a spicy ginger note that freshens up the composition, which makes this a fragrance unlike any other we've come across. Wonderful in any room, although we especially like this one in bathrooms, for some reason. 

Esteban Cedre Scented Reed Diffusers, 250ml | £44

Esteban Cedre Scented Reed Diffusers, 250ml | £44 £35.20 at John Lewis & Partners

Esteban make fantastic home fragrances, and their Neroli diffuser is one of our all-time favourites. But lately, we've been cheating on Neroli with Cedre – the smell of noble woods sweetened with just a bit of vanilla. Sandalwood and cedarwood are the most prominent notes, but there's also a dash of nutmeg, which just makes everything a bit more interesting. A classy fragrance that's perfect for aiding concentration during the working day. 

Tom Dixon London Reed Diffuser, 200ml | £90

Tom Dixon London Reed Diffuser, 200ml | £90 £72 at John Lewis & Partners

So, this is a lot of money to spend on a reed diffuser. It also smells incredible. The brand describe 'London' as 'the smell of red brick and London parks with crocuses and nettles, and the salty smell of Thames at Dagenham.' To decode: it's a very classy blend of oud, woods, and vetiver. Suitable for any room, but especially for a living room or home office.
