The Vitruvi Move ($179) is a sleek and modern cordless essential oil diffuser that lets you spread your favorite scents all over your home. It has a stunning matte metal finish and BPA-free plastic reservoir, with run times of a consistent mist for four hours and intermittent mist for eight hours. At 7.4 inches tall, 3 inches wide, and only 1.2 pounds, the ultrasonic machine is compact and lightweight. Although small, it has a diffusing capacity of up to 500 square feet. It also features an auto shut-off when the timer is up, the water runs out, or the lid is removed.

As for the battery life, one charge lasts through one full use cycle of either four hours of consistent mist or eight hours of intermittent mist. You can use it while it's plugged in, but you can also opt to use its portable charging pad to extend its battery life without the need for outlets. It's also covered by a one-year warranty.

Pros

To no surprise, my favorite thing about the Vitruvi Move is how truly portable it is. Over the summer, I brought it outside with ease and used it to diffuse a mix of mosquito-repelling essential oils. On mornings when I need a little extra self-care, I'll place it on the floor near my yoga mat to get an extra dose of my go-to scent, lavender. And when it's not in use, I don't feel the need to hide it away in a drawer or my closet since it blends in seamlessly with my decor. It's also super quiet compared to other diffusers I've tried.

Cons

The biggest con is the price. At $179, it's definitely a "treat yourself" kind of purchase. And while I love the colorways it's available in, they're more neutral and might not be a great fit for someone who wants bright pops of color. The diffuser also only has two mist settings, making your options quite limited.

Out of all the essential oil diffusers I've tried, the Vitruvi Move is one of my favorites. It's sleek, portable, and isn't limited to an outlet. I opted for a Fog (a smokey gray), but it also comes in six other colors, including white, black, terracotta, charm, willow, and chestnut. Treat yourself or a loved one to this modern diffuser and shop Vitruvi below.
