We are the world's first reed diffuser subscription brand. We exist to make your home smell amazing 24/7 x 365.
Pick your favourite fragrance and that diffuser is youts for life! Then, instead of throwing it away after it's been beautifully fragrant for three months, you get eco-refills straight to your doorstep. The refills come in any fragrance you fancy, so you can stick to a signature scent, or switch to something more seasonal. Either way, when the refill arrives with the new reeds: boom, you have a whole new diffuser for just £35.
That's convenient, flexible, sustainable and luxury scent without the markup.
Sample. Diffuse. Refill. Repeat.
Sample. Start by choosing your scent. This is where the scent journey begins. Sign up and sample all our fragrances for free. Or, skip to the good part and order your diffuser immediately.
Diffuse. Order the diffuser. Let the good smells roll. One diffuser, for keeps. Made from 100% recycled plastic and beautifully designed to look stunning in all homes, for life.
Subscribe for refills. Everlasting fragrance. Letterbox friendly refills arrive every season so your home smells divine 24/7 x 365. You can pick a signature scent or mix and match as you please.
Total Flexibility. At your convenience. Once subscribed you can switch fragrances, reschedule or skip deliveries and cancel anytime (though we recommend 3 month intervals for a reason). Subscribers even get access to extra special scents no one else has sniffed.
Repeat happily ever after.
Your diffuser box is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
The box contains your diffuser, 10 reeds, a fragrance coaster and 180ml of your chosen fragrance of course, but, our lifer bottle is also designed to be refilled and refilled, with whatever fragrance you fancy on subscription.
You will never need to buy another diffuser again!
Letterbox friendly and easily recyclable, our fragrance pouches are the antidote to industry waste and the solution to repeat buying diffusers.
With your subscription, a new fragrance is scheduled to arrive every 3 months, just in time to refill your empty bottle. No more empties! No more markup paying for a new bottle each time!
You can swap and change your fragrance choice at any point before your billing date by logging on to: Account - Subscriptions - Edit or directly through the magic link email.
You can also reschedule your refill or skip a refill if you need to, however we do suggest 3 months as that's around the time your oils and reeds will be due a refresh :)
In addition to 180ml of diffuser fragrance, you also get fresh new reeds as the old reeds will be clogged up. And you get a new fragrance coaster which handily reminds you of the scent profile.
Alternatively, you can buy our refills ad hoc (once they're in stock) and refill at your own pace. Either way, your cutting down on waste :)
Nope! You can buy the Diffuser as a one-off purchase, which is handy if you're giving this as a gift. You can purchase refills ad hoc too (once they're in stock - coming soon).
But, if you subscribe you do save £10 on each refill and the fragrance lands on your door fuss-free every three months.

Yes! You may need a diffuser in your bedroom, kitchen, living room, bathroom, ballroom and billiard room (you get the picture). If you've ordered them all at once, the refills will arrive together each month. If you have ordered them separately and would like them to arrive all once, you can amend this in your account.

Here at Stink London we believe that making small changes to our daily choices can make a big difference. Although this big planet needs more assistance than our own individual impacts can offer, together we can all help. Case in point: in the UK we buy an average of 6 candles, per person, each year and whilst 6 may not seem like many individually, it adds up to a giant 350m candles per year. Given that the average candle burns for only 6 hours, the waste from our national candle habit is exhausting: think of the candle casing (often plastic), the packaging and the unused wax, all ending up in landfill, taking up to 1000 years to degrade. Stink London has been born out of a desire to slash that figure and create a more sustainable solution that you will be proud to showcase on your shelves forever.
STEPS WE’VE TAKEN
We don’t claim to be perfect but we are a small business doing our best to ensure that our eco-credentials stack up. Our slogan is Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
One Reed Diffuser to rule them all. In short, you won’t need a shelf full of smellies. Our fragrance oil has been optimised to the max: we’ve selected the most high performing base and used a perfume quality scent ratio, then we’ve paired that with a healthy bunch of sustainably sourced rattan reeds. You will only need one reed diffuser in a room to fill the entire space with irresistible scent for ever more.
Our distinguished, stunning, chic, beautiful, gorgeous, custom-designed Forever Bottle is not to be sniffed at. It is yours, for good. With our unique subscription model, you receive perfectly timed refills each season, aka, just when your last batch empties! We have embraced the #refillrevolution with style and ease. And, of course, your fresh fragrance oil, reeds and coaster is scent to your door (excuse the pun) with low-emission, letterbox friendly packaging too.
The driving force of our design has been to create a beautiful diffuser bottle that can be kept and used forever and therefore should not need recycling! Nevertheless, you may notice that each collar is slightly unique and this is because it has been made from 100% recycled plastic bottle waste (closing the loop). Our packaging is fully recyclable and the ingredients in our fragrances are gathered from 100% renewable (and VEGAN) sources. Where plastic has been used in the refill pouches, its advantage in being lightweight, mono-plastic and low-emission has outweighed the disadvantages: but they are easily recyclable too!
- OTHER HIGHLIGHTS
Did we mention that reed diffusers are flame-free?! That means we are safer and less-polluting than incense or candles: no fumes, no fuss, and no risk of a nasty house fire. We are also electricity free! That means we won’t add to your bills like your plug-ins.
Reducing our carbon footprint as much as possible means using existing delivery routes with Royal Mail to deliver our eco-refill pouches.
Next steps: we are working towards using a compostable or zero plastic refill pouch to replace our recyclable pouches.
Welcome to the #refillution! We embrace the refill revolution as it cuts out a whole host of wastage. By refilling a refillable product you are naturally cutting out a large chunk of the carbon footpint, emissions and materials that go into making what would otherwise be multiple single use products.
In our case as well, the refill pouches are lightweight and minimal packaging, meaning less burden in shipping as well as less impact on resources.
YES! All our suppliers and manufacturers are sustainably sourced and UK based and each diffuser is hand-poured and packed in Devon!
Glad you asked because it took us ages! The collar is 100% recycled and 100% recylcable plastic. It looks like marble, but it's far more precious!
Every single lid is unique and they're limited edition! Only 1200 of these exist in the world.
Yes! All our ingredients are fully plant-based. It also happens to be the most optimised for scent dispersion too :)
Someone is about to get lucky! There are always two ways to give a Stink London diffuser.
Option 1 is simple: send them a diffuser and they will not only get perfect fragrance for approx 3 months (better than flowers huh) but they will also have the diffuser lifer bottle to refill themselves.
Option 2 is maximum generosity: send them a diffuser and a year-long subscription! You will pay upfront for the diffuser with its first fragrance and the following three refills will arrive on their doorstep every 3 months.

Reed diffusers are the hands down supreme queens of home fragrance and we are prepared to tell you why:
1. Reed Diffusers have the greatest variety of scent.
2. Reed Diffusers have the best throw (fragrance dispersion) of any home fragrance.
3. Reed Diffusers work 24/7.
4. You can refill your reed diffuser.
5. They are truly sustainable.
You can read more about this topic on our blog: 5 facts that prove reed diffusers are the best for home fragrance
We are biased though...
All you need to do is rinse your empty diffuser and carefully pour your refill pouch in at the top. Then insert the fresh reeds and you're off.
The refill pouches have been specifically made out of a lightweight, mono-plastic which can be easily recycled anywhere that recycles LDPE.
Flipping the reeds is a good habit. Depending on your space, we recommend flipping them every few days to keep the fragrance circulating to its optimum abilities.
