For a fragrant home

We recently came across a home fragrance diffuser like we've never seen before. We're giving Michael Aram's orchid or lotus blossom diffuser our vote for the most attractive diffuser we've ever seen.

The striking piece has a hammered nickel plate base and frosted glass, and the scents are heavenly. The fragrance fills the air and adds a nice artistic touch to your décor. Pick one up for $99 at Bloomingdale's Home Store at Fashion Island in Newport Beach.
