my dog lucy and i do just about everything together and there isn’t a room in my house that’s off limits to her. and while i think she is pretty darn adorable, i do not want my home smelling like her — especially in these winter months when that rascal tends to get damp and muddy! because of this, i have to clean often and quite thoroughly. recently though, i discovered a great way to breathe a bit easier between those deep-cleanings using aera’s hypoallergenic home scenting system, and i’m so excited to be partnering with them to share my experience with you.

aera offers eight different fragrances to choose from, my current favorite being curiosity and once the device is plugged in, their unique technology allows you to control your home’s scent from your smartphone. using the AeraforHome app, you can monitor your home’s scent, control how strong or subtle it is, and even schedule when you want the fragrance to dispense, so you’re not wasting any while you’re away. and, if you’d like to try it for yourselves, aera is happy to offer a reader discount code — just enter promo code LUCY20 at checkout for 20% off your order on aera through 11/22/17. (Limited to one use per customer and cannot be combined with any other discounts).

that’s what i like most about aera, it’s always ready. there’s nothing you need to add, like water or essential oils, and no messy cleanup, like there is with a diffuser. and unlike plug-in air fresheners that you can only really smell when you’re near the outlet, aera offers wide reaching coverage that can scent a room up to 2,000 square feet and each capsule will maintain its scent quality for up to 60 days of continuous use. and the capsules are mixed-use recyclable, simplifying your recycling process with mixed-use dumpsters which is great since it encourages ease of participation from consumers.

don’t get me wrong, i love scented candles, but i’ve definitely felt the panic of forgetting to blow one out or worried about lucy tipping one over when i’m not in the room. aera takes all that unnecessary worry out of fragrancing your home with their easy to use, hands-off approach. it’s basically the set-it-and-forget-it of air fresheners and a real breathe of fresh air!

  1. This is really cool… I’m not sure if it’s the same for dogs, but most essential oils are really toxic for cats as their livers can’t metabolise the compounds, leading to build-up that can be fatal. Worth checking! I have a cat and a smelly puppy – still looking for a solution!

  2. That painting on the wall is GORGEOUS. And the pictures on your blog are always so lovely, with a soft positive light in them… I never comment but thought it was high time I should do so (and I hope that sentence is in “undersandable” English..!!)

  3. Thanx! Just ordered it in the little size. Can’t wait for it to arrive on my wall in Paris from Oregon… Internet can be sooo good !

  4. Hello! I love your bar cart/side table. Do you have a link/brand for that piece? As a PS, just became clued into your blog and absolutely loving your home and design inspiration.

  5. Our experience with Aera so far has been pretty underwhelming, to say the least.
    – We purchased a “Glow” set which was supposed to come with a Diffuser and a Glow fragrance. When the order was shipped to us, there was only the diffuser and no “glow” fragrance. We had additionally purchased “Poetry” – which was included. 
- Upon following up with customer support, Glow was shipped out
- Poetry was very unimpressive and at around 6-7 intensity, was hardly noticeable in our medium-sized bedroom. No one even noticed the fragrance, we tried placing it at various places with no success. 
- Glow, on the other hand, was better, we liked it. But this did not last long. 
- It’s been about a week of using our diffuser and it seems to have stopped working. The LED lights on top of the unit are cycling from 1-10 rapidly. 
- We switched off and switched it back on; we pulled the power cord and plugged it back. We reset the device by simultaneously pressing + and – buttons – nothing helps.
    The unit is no longer diffusing! Upon pressing the eject button, nothing happens. I pulled out the capsule in any case and plugged it back in. Whether the capsule is plugged in or pulled out, the LED lights keep toggling. My App indicates that the device is reachable, functioning ok – but that is not the case.
    With a week’s run, this device has already tanked.

    None of the troubleshooting tips worked. They sent us a Fedex return label. And I am told they will replace the faulty unity once their QA gets the returned equipment. We shipped it back 2 days ago, it won’t reach them till next Friday, so I am guessing, if at all we do get a replacement, it will not be till mid January. This was a Christmas present, and we ended up relying on good old Yankee candles. This left a sour taste in the mouth, the quality of the equipment as well as their unsympathetic Customer Support. Anyway, we are kind of stuck with this as I was over enthusiastic and also bought two additional fragrances – now I have no choice but to wait and hope they send me back a replacement, whenever they do.

    • I’m so very sorry to hear this, Anna. I’ve had none of these kinds of issues with mine, so maybe it’s a faulty unit. Should you not hear from customer service please let me know and I will reach out to them.
