I have this diffuser in my office at work. I keep it on my desk and use it almost every day. It is really small so you have to keep it close to you in order to really get the full effect but it does slowly fill my office with a nice scent. It is a little noisy, and it only stays on for 3 hours but it is perfect for office desk use I think. For the home, I would recommend a larger diffuser but for work this is perfect!
