How we rate home fragrances

Our review compares home fragrances on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which home fragrance they think is best!

Canstar Blue surveyed 1,019 Australians for their feedback on the home fragrance product(s) they’ve purchased and used in the last 12 months. Note: this includes candles, oil diffusers, reed diffusers, etc., but does not include aerosol air fresheners or disinfectant sprays.

  • The outcomes reported in these ratings are measured via accredited research panels managed by Qualtrics.

Respondents rate their satisfaction with their home fragrance brand(s) from zero to ten, where zero is extremely dissatisfied and ten is extremely satisfied. Brand satisfaction was rated by respondents on the following criteria:
  • Overall satisfaction: measures consumer satisfaction with a home fragrance brand as an individual score NOT a combined total of all criteria.
  • Scent: the home fragrance provided a pleasant smell that matched the scent description, and wasn’t too overpowering.
  • Effectiveness: the home fragrance was effective in covering unpleasant and noticeable smells, and had a far reach.
  • Value for money: the cost is reasonable for the quality and effectiveness of the home fragrance.
  • Variety & range: the home fragrance brand had a wide variety of scents, products and sizes available to choose from.
  • Packaging: the home fragrance packaging made it easy to open, use and store.

The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.

  • Overall satisfaction is asked as a specific question and represents an individual measure, not a combined total of all criteria.
  • When we cannot determine a clear winner from the criteria for the Overall satisfaction rating, we will then look at the other criteria measured in the rating.
    • The brand with the highest number of five-star ratings within the supporting criteria will become the five-star recipient in overall satisfaction, and thus win the award. If a clear leader still cannot be determined from the supporting criteria, joint winners will be declared.

Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

  • Glasshouse
  • Natio
  • Dusk
  • Anko
  • Ecoya
