My mother-in-law sent us one of these things. It's a reed diffuser from Pier 1. We have the Aspen Flower scent. The bamboo type reeds sit in a scented oil, and release the scent into the air. I notice Alysha had these all over her home last weekend. I am nervous about Sammy cat attacking it though, so I have placed it up high in Connor's room. It has covered any of his gross boy odors. It truly is a Fabulous Thing.
