Some helpful do’s and don’ts on using our products and answers to commonly asked questions,
contact us if there’s anything we haven’t covered here…
How do I use my Diffuser Flower?
Gently unwind the wick (it can be folded or trimmed if it is too long for your chosen bottle) do not pull the wick too hard or it may come away from the flower head. Please make sure that the flower is a good size in proportion to your container. Too big and the flower head could cause the bottle to topple over. Too small and you will not be able to get enough fragrance up the wick.
Carefully fill up your bottle with fragrance almost to the top using a jug or a small funnel. Always do your filling and topping up in the sink, never do it over your furniture in case of spillages. The wick needs to be well covered with fragrance in order to diffuse.
Insert the wick and flower in to the bottle making sure the flower head is upright not angled downwards. After 24-36 hours fragrance will have absorbed up in to the flower and the fluid level in the bottle dropped down. At this point you can top up the fragrance level in the bottle. You will need to keep refilling the level in the bottle in order for the flower to keep diffusing.
Please be very careful not to spill any diffuser fluid on your surfaces, it will cause damage! Any spillages mop up with a damp cloth and dry immediately
Make sure that the flower is freestanding with space around it and that the petals are not in contact with any surfaces or fabrics to avoid any damage.
Keep your diffuser away from Children, animals and heat sources. If you get fragrance on your skin please wash the area straight away.
What is the flower made from?
Each diffuser flower is handmade of natural Sola wood material which is steamed in to shape. The natural cotton wick is inserted for the diffuser liquid to be absorbed up in to the flower head.
How long will the flower and fragrance last?
We are always conservative with our estimates, 125ml will last around 6 weeks in a medium size room at ambient temperature.
Obviously if your diffuser is sitting above a radiator, in a sunny window or other heat source it will dry out quicker.
The flowers have an extremely long life, they will last until you want to replace them, as long as you keep the flower wick wet, it will continue to diffuse, however after around 6-9 months the rate of diffusion will be much less than a new flower.
Do I need to keep topping up the fragrance?
Absolutely! The process works by the wick being well immersed in the liquid, as the flower absorbs the fragrance you will need to keep topping up to keep the diffusion rate going.
Once the level drops too low to travel up the wick, the flower will start to dry out and the fragrance will stop.
Are the fragrances natural oils?
Our fragrances are very high quality and do contain natural ingredients but are not 100% natural oils due to the scarcity and price of some of the world’s most expensive ingredients, like most of the fragrance industry some of the ingredients in the fragrances are synthetic. to protect the planets resources.
Fragrance needs to travel easily up the wick and therefore needs a thin fluid base to do so properly, using natural oils would not work with our diffusion system.
Can I clean my flower?
Over time the flower will collect dust or the odd insect, the best way to clean the flower is to use a small dry fine paintbrush to remove any large particles from the surface of the petals.
Can I get a refill?
Of course, we want you to be happy and get the best from your diffuser flower so our fragrances are available to buy in 125ml and 250ml sizes.
Why does my flower have little marks or holes on the petals?
Each diffuser flower is handmade of natural Sola wood material and may have little brown marks or tiny holes this is unavoidable using a natural product. We will always try and give you the most perfect flower we can.
Why has my flower changed colour?
Our flowers absorb the ingredients of each individual fragrance and over time and sometimes a reaction occurs changing the colour of the flower to a golden, ochre or brown colour. This perfectly normal do not worry.
Can I have samples of the fragrances ?

My Vintage bottle is not 100% perfect…
Vintage bottles are old, the idea is to give new life to something made a long time ago avoiding unnecessary landfill, so they are and never will be brand new factory glass.
There will probably be some signs of age and use, some edges may be a bit nibbled or the odd chip present, but we believe this is part of the charm. We always check each bottle before sending out to you for any cracks, chips or sharp edges. We will never purposely send out a badly damaged bottle.
