1. A method for emitting two volatile compositions, said method comprising providing two different volatile compositions comprising a first volatile composition and a second volatile composition, wherein said fast and second volatile compositions are emitted by healing the compositions and dispensing them through a wick, and further, wherein said first and second volatile compositions are emitted in a substantially continuous emission sequence in which the emission of the different volatile compositions automatically alternates between the different volatile compositions in the sequence wherein in said alternating sequence:

  • (a) said first volatile compositions is emitted for a first time period, said first time period having a beginning and an end;

    (b) said second volatile composition is emitted for a second time period, said second time period having a beginning and an end, and said second time period begins at one of the following times;

    (i) at the end of said first period;

    or(ii) after a period of time comprising a gap period after the end of said first period; and

    (c) after the beginning of said second period, said first volatile composition is emitted again, and the pattern repeats;

    wherein said different volatile compositions arc emitted during discrete emission periods, and said discrete emission periods are each greater than 15 minutes in length and less tan or equal to about 48 hours in length.
