At an industry event this week, a fellow home editor asked me, “What’s the one gift you think is going to be everywhere this year?” Now, I’m no official 2022 present predictor or anything, and it may be too early for holiday shopping forecasts anyway, but I do have one little luxury I’m already putting on a wishlist-worthy pedestal: Vitruvi’s new gold wireless diffuser. I repeat, gold.

ICYMI, Vitruvi is known for aesthetically pleasing, well-designed diffusers and humidifiers, plus exclusive essential oils and room sprays. I’ve previously sung the praises of their bestselling Stone essential oil diffuser, which essentially doubles as a work of art on my nightstand, but the brand’s latest limited-edition launch is one of the best (and most giftable) yet.

Expanding upon their popular Move essential oil diffuser, Vitruvi teamed up with contemporary jewelry brand Mejuri to introduce a gorgeous gold matte finish to the collection. The style combines both brands’ minimalist ethos with a cordless, compact silhouette that’s easy to transport from room to room. I got to test this diffuser (which I’m obsessed with, BTW), and it’s been sitting pretty on just about every surface of my apartment since unboxing, from my bathroom shelf to work desk to living room side table.

In addition to the diffuser debut, this collab includes a new essential oils scent, Séjour, with notes of bergamot, geranium, vetiver, vanilla, and frankincense. As the Vitruvi site explains, it “smells like champagne cellars and perfect afternoons.” I’ll admit, I’m still partial to some of their original fragrance blends (you can’t go wrong with the lavender-infused “Sleep”), all of which are compatible with the new Move diffuser. Just remove the top, add water up to the fill line, pour in about 20-30 drops of essential oils, and choose from either four- or eight-hour run times (although you can turn it off manually whenever you want). You can also set the mood with different lighting options via three LED settings at the push of a button.

All in all, this new gold Move diffuser is elevated, modern, and — dare I say — bougie. Small but mighty, it’s powerful enough to scent spaces up to 500 square feet. Couple it with a Vitruvi essential oil or two, and you have the ultimate better-than-a-candle holiday present for close friends and fam (and yourself!). Yes, it’s a splurge at $182, but think of it as the indulgent, fragrant accent that truly keeps on giving year round, even when not in use. Because nothing says “thinking of you” quite like a pop of gold, trust me.
