The Moodo AIR 2 in 1 Air Purifier & Scent Diffuser is smart and easy to use. It can be controlled via the controls on the front, the Moodo app, Alexa, Google, IFTTT and more. Scents are diffused by their dry air diffusion technology, without any fire or alcohol making moodo safe and easy to use.

When you order Moodo, you’ll get the diffuser unit, and what Moodo calls ‘scent families’. Scent families are boxes of differently scented capsules tailored by Moodo to work together and smell nice when mixed but can be used solo too. To start your scent experience, just plug in Moodo and drop in some capsules. Next, you’ll connect to Wi-Fi and get your app working, but it’s here I had quite a bit of trouble. I tried connecting to two different Wi-Fi networks and had mighty struggles with both.

The manual that comes with Moodo says you just need to follow the instructions in the app, which involves connecting to your home Wi-Fi. After numerous attempts, I was unable to connect. The app just kept telling me the connection had failed, and to do a factory reset on the device and try again. I did this probably a dozen times and had no luck. Just as I was about to give up, I tried one more time, and bingo! With the Moodo successfully connected to Wi-Fi, you can now control it with the app. In theory.

Moodo says its fragrances are created by expert perfumers and are produced in France. The capsules are long-lasting, alcohol-free, eco-friendly and cruelty-free. If you look at them, you can see tiny plastic beads inside the capsules. They’re reminiscent of those scent beads you used to see inside toilet paper roll holders back in the 1980s.

You can set intervals or create custom schedules with Moodo. Intervals allow the unit to operate by turning on for a period of time then off again to meter the use and presumably preserve the capsule’s longevity. The scheduler and the interval tools are straightforward and easy to use, and they work well. A smart feature of the device is its ability to run manually, meaning other family members and guests (Airbnb maybe?) can control their own scents.

On the back of the device are four buttons, each one corresponding to the scent pod on top. Push the button for the particular cap[sule you want to control, then use an up/down arrow to adjust.

You’re supposed to be able to control Moodo with smart digital assistants, but how you do it is a bit of a mystery, at least as far as the manual is concerned. You’ll need to head to Moodo. co/smart-home to see what it works with. Also, Siri/Apple Home is not one of them on that list, and I couldn’t get it added to my Apple Homekit.

In a word, Moodo smells artificial. It’s quite perfumey, which might not be surprising since it’s made by French perfumers. Personally, I found the scents cloying and headache-inducing. They all smelled very fake; even ones that I felt could have smelled very singular and real, like lavender, vanilla or citrus. Each scent is definitely different and there’s a wide variety of scents available, but if I had to pick a favourite out of the 12 capsules that come with the package, I’d be struggling to say there’s one or two I’d use on a regular basis.

Overall, the Moodo AIR 2 in 1 Air Purifier & Scent Diffuser is a nice idea in theory, but I can’t recommend it for a few reasons. For starters, the app and connectivity are finicky and requires numerous attempts to connect. I also can’t get it working with either Siri or Google. The other major factor is that I don’t like how it smells. For me personally, I’d much rather have some essential oils in a diffuser; scents that smell real, delicate and authentic. Even on low power, I found Moodo to be a bit too much and too fake smelling to be enjoyable.
