Pura Home Fragrance Review

I have tried many different scent diffusers over the years but I always have the same problem, I either leave them on all day and eventually they run out of water and oils or I never turn them on because the water dried up and I don’t replace them. Also, the scents aren’t really that great. In fact, I’ve always preferred candle scents over plug-ins but I like the convenience of a plug-in diffuser. As I was searching for yet another fragrance diffuser I came across Pura smart home fragrance diffuser and after reading the Pura reviews decided to try Pura and I haven’t turned back since. In this post, I’m sharing a Pura review and giving you my honest thoughts about this fragrance diffuser.

How to Use the Pura Smart Home Diffuser

The compact Pura Smart Fragrance diffuser plugs directly into any home electrical outlet. This style of diffuser eliminates the need for a long and usually unsightly electrical cord, and the Pura home fragrance doesn’t take up valuable countertop space like a lot of other diffusers do. It also adds flexibility as to where you can place the Pura fragrance diffuser in the home. Have a small bathroom without much countertop space? A direct plug-in Pura Smart home diffuser may just be the solution.

Prior to first using the Pura you will want to download the app (seriously there’s an app for everything nowadays). The Pura Smart Home Fragrance Diffuser allows you to customize every detail of your Pura device all right in the Pura app. The Pura app allows you to switch between one of two installed scents, adjust scent levels, set timers for the fragrances, create schedules and control the nightlight.

When you first install a new scent, you will be notified in the app to enter the scent code located on the Pura scent bottle. This allows the app to know what scent you just installed so that the app can show a picture of the scent in your app and make it easier to choose between one of the two scents you can have installed.

One downside to the Pura scent bottles is that once the scent bottles are opened and loaded into the Pura Smart Home diffuser you have to be sure the diffuser stays vertical at all times. If you allow it to go horizontal, the fragrance liquids will spill and make a mess.

The electrical plug prongs on the Pura diffuser do rotate so that you can always point the Pura Smart Home diffuser in the upright position regardless of the positioning of the electrical outlet. This should solve most of your problems and prevent unintended leakage of the Pura fragrances.

Through the Pura app, you can create scent schedules so that your scent runs only at the times and at levels you desire. Additionally, if your scent is starting to run low the Pura app will send you a notification. The app does have the feature to order scents directly through it but I haven’t used that feature. I order the Pura scents directly from another retailer like Amazon.

How long do the Pura Scents last?

As a rule of thumb and directly from Pura’s website, each Pura scent vial will last for around 100 hours at an intensity of 5 if you run the Pura for 4 hours every day, that is almost a month’s worth of usage from one Pura scent bottle. The Pura app keeps track of the hours and intensity each fragrance bottle has been used and it uses this data to estimate how much scent is left in the fragrance bottles.

In my experience, the app does a pretty good job of letting you know how much fragrance is left but you could always pull the casing off of the Pura diffuser and inspect the vial to see how much Pura fragrance is left. The online Pura reviews were spot on when it came it how long Pura scents last so I have been extremely happy with the amount of fragrance you get from the Pura scents.

Pura Smart Home Scent Variety

Pura’s large variety of fragrances is definitely the greatest thing about it. They’ve teamed up with numerous popular candle companies to create Pura diffuser scents based on existing candle scents. They’re always adding new and exciting fragrances so check their website often for new and exciting scents. I’ve tried around 8 different fragrances so far, and I haven’t been disappointed yet. My all-time favorite Pura scent is the Capri Blue Volcano scent. I used to buy the Capri Blue Volcano candles and burn them all the time but as time moved on I found it harder and harder to justify the expense. The Pura smart device has been an excellent compromise.  I still get the same Capri Blue Volcano smell, it’s just automatic, cheaper, and I don’t have to worry about lighting a candle.

Can you Combine Two Pura Smart Home Diffuser Fragrances?

The Pura holds two scents at a time, allowing you to alternate between two fragrances as you wish. Another feature I wish was incorporated in the Pura smart device is the ability to combine two scents but the Pura device doesn’t have that feature. If you try and turn on one Pura scent while another scent is already on, the other will simply be turned off and the second scent will be activated. You can however have separate schedules for each Pura scent if you would like. In a way, you can combine scents in that you can schedule different Pura scents back to back.

How Big of a Room Does the Pura Diffuser Cover?

Through the app, you can adjust the intensity of the scent to fit the size of the space and your personal preference. If you have a larger room or a room where the pets stay you may want to be on the higher end of the intensity levels, with a smaller room you will want to be on the lower end of the intensity levels to ensure the Pura home fragrance isn’t too overpowering. This will take some adjusting to figure out what works best for you and your space. I have my Pura fragrance diffuser in my living room/ dining room combo and what I thought would happen was that the fragrance would be super strong near the Pura Smart diffuser, but that hasn’t been true. It is true the Pura fragrance is certainly stronger the closer you are to the Pura device but the aroma does spread throughout the room quite nicely. When reading online Pura reviews this was my biggest question and I can I have been really satisfied with the coverage of the Pura Home Fragrances.

Scheduling Pura Scents

The Pura Smart Home app also allows you to create custom schedules for when the Pura home fragrances will turn on and off. The scheduling feature is absolutely my favorite feature of the Pura home fragrance device, when I had other diffusers I would inevitably stop using them for a variety of reasons, like forgetting to add water or never remembering to turn them on.  I don’t have that problem with the Pura Smart Home diffuser.  

Best Pura Scents

  1. Capri Blue Volcano
  2. Capri Blue Havana Vanilla
  3. Homesick Hawaii
  4. Becki Owens Coconut Calm
  5. Brooklyn Candle Studio Santorini

With my list of the best Pura scents clearly, there is a theme with coastal inspired scents but that fits my style. These Pura scents are all reasonably priced and are found in many retailers or online.

Away Mode Feature

One other Pura Smart Home feature I like is the auto-away feature. This feature allows the Pura device to use the location of your phone to turn your Pura scents off when you are away from your home. You do have to make sure the Pura device has access to the locations so you may have to adjust your phone settings to properly use this feature

Smart Home Integration

Since the Pura Smart Home diffuser is a SMART device. You can connect your Pura to other SMART devices like Amazon’s Alexa or Google Assistant. From your home assistant devices, you can change the light color, change the intensity of the scent among other tasks associated with your Pura. This makes the Pura Smart Home diffuser truly a SMART device and makes for a great addition to any smart home.

Pura Smart Home Diffuser Cost

The Pura Smart Diffuser has a base cost of $44. One refill bottle of Capri Blue Volcano costs $17. Totaling $61 in set-up costs. To me, that is a great price point considering one 19 oz. Capri Blue Volcano Candle costs roughly $35 on Amazon.

My Pura Car Review

Pura knocked it out of the park with their latest diffuser. It’s actually a smart diffuser for your car. I have absolutely loved having this in my car. The Pura car diffuser has all the same features as the home product but is specifically designed for your car. Simply keep the Pura Car diffuser plugged into your vehicle’s USB port and you will have the same great smells in your car that you enjoy in your home. My favorite way to use this car diffuser is when picking up food on the run. It can often times leave your car smelling like yesterday’s lunch, well not anymore with this ingenious device.

My Favorite Pura Car Scents

With scents from brands like NEST, Anthropologie and of course Pura itself it is hard to pick just a few but here you go a few of my favorite Pura car scents.

Pura Car Costs

The Pura Car device starts at $34.99 and goes up from there depending on the features you want. I went with this one and have not felt like I need the one with more features. The car scents are a bit cheaper than the home scents and they start at $11.99 and go up from there. My absolute favorite Volcano by Capri Blue is $16.00 and seems to last about 45-60 days depending on how often I manually click the device.

    1. oh wow – I’m sorry that you had a bad experience. Mine work wonderfully but you do need to be a little tech savvy because the diffusers work with an app on your phone.

  2. This company is terrible. overpriced, not worth it at all. My wife went through about 3 of them before we realized. Also their customer service is ABSYMAL. It is among the worst of any company I’ve had the displeasure of dealing with.

    This company does not deserve support.
