Candle vs. Diffuser - What’s the Difference?

Are you looking for home fragrances that deliver delicious aromas without using toxic chemicals, lead, phthalates, plastics, and parabens? If so, look no further! Here at Haze Fragrance, scented candles are our specialty. We also offer many of our most popular fragrances in reed diffusers. If you are having trouble choosing between a reed diffuser or candle for your space, we are here to help explain the difference. To start with, candles provide ambiance with their flickering flames, whereas reed diffusers fill up spaces with fragrance over time and do not require an open flame. We’re all about high-quality products that smell amazing and are safe to use around your kids and pets. Both options can be used anywhere in your home or office – just make sure to take precautionary measures when it comes to kids and pets in the area. From there, it just becomes a personal preference between the two products and scents!


Scented Candles

Scented candles are a popular and versatile way to add ambiance, style, and scent to any home. Whether it’s for yourself or someone special, anyone can appreciate the pleasant aroma of a scented candle. They can also create a seasonal-themed vibe at home - pumpkin and nutmeg for fall and juniper fir for winter - making them great gifts for any holiday or special occasion.

Candles are fascinating because we’ve been using them for centuries as a source of light and fragrance. But how exactly do they work? It all starts with a combustion reaction. The flame’s heat melts the wax at the candle’s wick, and then its capillary action draws it up through the wick to be vaporized. During the process of vaporization, the wax is broken down into oxygen and hydrogen molecules, and when it reaches the flame, its fragrance is released into the air. 

Haze Fragrance candles are made with all-natural ingredients, including sustainable coconut soy wax and FSC-Certified wood wicks, with only the best fragrance oils to create unique fragrances. Furthermore, they are non-toxic and free of phthalates and parabens, allowing for a clean, consistent and safe burn.

Pros and Cons of Scented Candles

Candles are a great way to give your home an inviting atmosphere. Thanks to their soft glow, you can use candles in any number of settings, from romantic evenings to cozy afternoons with friends. But scented candles offer an extra touch that goes beyond mere light: fragrances like lavender, cinnamon, and vanilla can transport you to a totally different time and place. Whether it's for a special occasion or just to make your home feel warm and inviting, scented candles are the perfect choice!

Scented candles are a gift favorite, no matter if you’re looking for something special for her or him. With so many different fragrances available, like floral, fruity, or even masculine scents, there’s sure to be something to please everyone. Candles also make great gifts for those tricky people who are hard to shop for.

While scented candles are a great way to add fragrance and ambiance to any room, it requires some extra attention when used. Candles should be placed in secure areas away from pets, children, and flammable materials. Additionally, you must be vigilant about keeping an eye on the candle when it is lit, as opposed to other home fragrance options like reed diffusers that require less maintenance. Safety should always come first whenever using scented candles.

Our 8 oz scented candles have around 40 to 45 hours of burn time, which is definitely a considerable length of time. However, compared to the two to three months of active fragrance release a reed diffuser gives off with constant use, candles generally don't last as long.

When it comes to having the most pleasant candle-burning experience, it's important that you invest in high-quality scented candles. Low-quality candles can have an uneven burn, poor scent throw and even release toxins into your environment. For the best-smelling, long-lasting, and safest experience, choose Haze Fragrance for your candle needs!


Reed Diffusers

Have you ever wanted to fill your home with wonderful smells without the worry of a flame, heat source, or electricity? Reed diffusers are the perfect choice! They are a hassle-free way to create a beautiful-smelling home - no mess, no fuss. But how do reed diffusers work? It’s actually more simple than you might think; reed diffusers use special rattan sticks to diffuse fragrance oil slowly with capillary action into the air and provide continuous scent while keeping your family safe.

Reed diffusers are an easy-to-use, decorative way of filling your home with your favorite scent. They consist of three components: a narrow-neck bottle (usually made with glass or ceramic), fragrance oil, and reeds. All you need to do is to place the reeds inside the bottle filled with fragrance oil with their tops sticking out, and the scent will travel throughout the air. 

Reeds are hollow sticks typically made from bamboo, rattan, or other fibrous material and play an important role in diffusing fragrances. When the reeds absorb the oil from the bottle, it slowly carries it up through its tiny channels. It evaporates out of the holes at the top of each reed, releasing deliciously scented aroma for a few months as long, depending on the volume of the fragrance oil, as you flip them every two or three weeks.


Benefits of Reed Diffusers

Pros and Cons of Reed Diffusers

Reed diffusers are an ideal choice for those who want a “set it and forget it” type of ambiance. Unlike candles, they require minimal maintenance and provide a long-lasting scent experience that works well in bathrooms, bedrooms, or entryways. The best part is that our reed diffusers are non-toxic and safe to use around children or pets! Plus, they last up to three months on average, while our 8 oz candle typically has around 40-45 hours of burn time - making them the perfect choice for busy households looking for a lasting scent solution.

Reed diffusers are a great alternative to candles or electric room fresheners as they require no plug-ins or open flames. They are easy to use, easily transportable, and can be placed anywhere in your home as long as there is no risk of it spilling over.

On the other hand, a reed diffuser can be difficult to clean up if it spills and may damage surfaces. While they provide a pleasant aroma and can be used as decorative items, they may not create the same atmosphere as a candle. If you want to fill your home with a pleasant fragrance and create a warm and welcoming vibe, you may want to consider other options besides a reed diffuser. However, they can still be a good choice if you don't need the added ambiance of a candle.


So, Which One is Better?

When making a choice between home fragrance products like reed diffusers and candles, it all comes down to personal preference. Reed diffusers may be more convenient in busy households, while candles come with the added benefit of creating an ambiance. So when considering which product is right for you, consider your lifestyle and how you want to scent your home.

Regardless of which option you choose, it's important to select a brand that values quality and safety. At Haze Fragrance, we are dedicated to creating high-quality candles and reed diffusers to provide our customers with the best scent experience possible.
