--CLOSED--I Want to Give You Something that is So Scentsy-ble!


The Scentsy Scene: You come over to my house for a latte and to talk blog shop...

You: *Sniffing repeatedly as you take off your shoes* "What is that heavenly smell?"

Me: "Awesomeness. Oh wait, *sniffs* mmmm yes that's coming from my bathroom!"

You: "Really? Your bathroom?"

Me: "Yeah I know. Nice change huh?"

You: "Well, yeah! But I can actually smell it all though your home, what is it?"

Me: "Come see!" *you and I do a fancy grapevine into the bathroom*

You: "Ohhhh that's so pretty! Is it a nightlight? A candle? What is it?"

Me: "It's even better than a nightlight OR a candle, girlfriend!! I was offered to review this lovely flame-less candle wax warmer from the company Scentsy! Isn't that fantastic???"

You: "Yeah! Scentsy huh? Tell me about it while you make my latte..."

Me: "Well *foaming milk* It's a booming company which began in 2003, when two awesome women came up with the idea to make decorative warmers that melt high-quality scented wax using a light bulb instead of a wick! An entrepreneur named Orville Thompson bought the company and BAM! My house now smells like Honey Pear Cider! Here! Check out their catalog!"

You: "Amazing! Oh, all of their items are so pretty!"

Me: "Totally! They have gift packs, refills, SO many warmers to choose from plug-ins, to medium-sized like mine, to full-sized, and Scentsy products galore!"

You: "So, obviously you like it?"

Me: "Like it? Psh. I LOOOOOVE it! Oh my gosh! I opened up the box like a rabid lunatic and giggled maniacally at how cute the warmer was! You can tell the quality is superb, and this medium sized warmer is perfect for my guest bathroom! See the scent bars? I repeatedly sniffed all the scents I asked to try of the 80 choices they have, like the Honey Pear Cider you smell now, perfect for those crisp fall or early spring days, the French Lavender, which is clean and relaxing. Oh, and here is the Skinny Dippin' which because of the fresh apple scents with undertones of pear and melons, I am pretty sure I want made into a smoothie on a hot summer's day, and the Vanilla Suede which is smooth with a hint of spice. Mmmmmmmm I love them all!"

You: "Wow, so, how does it work?"

Me: "Wouldn't you like to know! So, see the cute Scentsy bar that comes in this stylish convenient pack ? You just break off a few sections of the wax inside, set them in the warmer dish, plug it in, turn it on via the on/off switch and VOILA! The soft scented wax melts and emits that fantastic Honey Pear Cider you smell!"

You: "Oh, I do love the Honey Pear Cider scent, but I wish I could smell the French Lavender!"

Me: "OK! let's do it!"

You: "Oh no00000, it's too much trouble!"

Me: "No, it's easier than making your latte! Watch this!" *I take my Honey Pear Cider bar package and open it up, I take my warmer full of melted wax and pour the wax right back into the empty spaces. I then wipe the warmer clean with a dry paper towel, give it a quick rinse and dry and set it back on the base, adding two sections of the French Lavender.* "See how easy that is?"

You: "Whoa! That is like, the coolest thing ever! The Honey Pear Cider scent is gone and I can already smell that wonderful French Lavender! And look, the Honey Pear Cider scent is nearly set in the container already! Can you use it again then?"

Me: "You bet I can! I can use it until the smell is completely gone, which for the whole bar is 40-80 hours, depending on the scent. It sets up within 10 minutes because the melting point for the paraffin wax is very low. I know this because I stuck my finger in the melted wax and didn't get burned at all. The base gets a little warm but, the wax will not burn you!"

You: "Of course you stuck your finger in it..."

Me: "Yeah, I can't help myself. I still tell my kids when it's on not to touch the wax, or the base, just in case..."

You: "Smart."

Me: "Tell me about it. And it is SO nice that I can get that wonderful scent without an open flame!"

You: "Anything you don't like about this product?"

Me: "No! I totally love it! You just have to make sure it's plugged into an area where the cord wont get pulled though, you don't want wax splashing all over the place. And really, I love how it acts as a nightlight too. I wouldn't leave it on alllll night but, I tell you what. Set this baby up in the bathroom, draw a bubble bath, turn the lights off, add a scent from their romantic collection to the warmer and..."

You: "Ohhhh...I gotta get me one of these! I WANT ONE!"

Me: "You do?? Well, today is your lucky day!"

go go goji sounds yummy...plus, I like the name... :D

Mrs. Plank said...

Okay I need this. I have heard about these forever and haven't tried it yet. I want Cinnamon Vanilla or Pumpkin Roll!!!!

Macey said...

Okay, I JUST had a Scentsy party in December. I LOVE IT. Seriously addicted to it.
I love the scent Welcome Home.
I think that's what it's called...I ordered the last one last time and I was so sad. :(

SurferWife said...

Ooooh, love Scentsy!

Did you make this giveaway just for me? I mean you talked like I do with all the 'likes' in there and then it's a nautical one and I mean I AM near the beach and all.

So, any good SurferWife would have to say Ocean Breeze, but between you and I, I'm thinking I would really dig the pomegranite.

SurferWife said...

Tweet, tweet!


SierraMac said...

Hey! I LOVE my Scentsy! I have one downstairs and a cute little plug-in nightlight one for the hallway upstairs.

AND...honey pear cider is my very favorite scent! Although we like Thunderstorm for everyday use, and I'm trying the new Mad about Mint, RIGHT NOW AS WE SPEAK. It's great too.

I don't have a blog or Twitter, so this will have to do as my entry(ies).

I'm gonna send this link to my Scentsy consultant who is also my friend and Bunko pal. :)


rachie said...

I'm a huge fan of the warm, foody scents. I am really surprised at the wide range of scents offered. Picking one is very difficult...I'd have to order a handful of scents at once. Toasted Caramel Sugar would be my first choice, with Mochadoodle probably second. So many of them sound amazing!

Vanessa said...

Satin Sheets. Because I didn't see a scent called Pizza Night.

tristan said...

uhh sunkissed citrus please.

since more than one person has entered this contest, i can say with confidence my bad luck mixed with the secret hatred the random number generator has for people named tristan, my chances are looking pretty slim.

if, by some chance, you find a random sunkissed citrus bar lying around, feel free to chuck it at me from afar. i can already see this stuff working wonders dumped in those vents up by the windshield in my car...just a thought...

Sue said...

Love them all!!! But if I had to choose just one, I would like to try Leather. Thanks!

lmurley2000 said...

wow they all sound good to me but the cinnamon vanilla sounds the best.

Meandering Mind said...

Scentsy stuff is great. Just bought my mom some of their scents and a warmer in fact. Hmm....

One of my favorite scents is Falling Leaves. Cinnamon, fall spices, and autumn crispness, yes, yes. Been pretty happy with almost all of the Masculine Scents as well (Yup, chicka here goes for the spices and the guy scents, no sweet, flowery, or food stuffs for me).

Mediterranean Spa sounds great!

This Crazy Thing Called Motherhood said...

Sounds like a cool product! I love to burn candles to make my home smell nice, so this kind of product is right up my alley. (And I totally know what you mean about using the soft glow during a relaxing bath; I do that a lot with my candles.)

Ok, I think these scents sound awesome:

Clean Breeze
Skinny Dippin'
Toasted Caramel Sugar
Ocean Breeze
Vanilla Cream
Sugar Cookie
Cutiepie Cupcake

and honestly I'd probably love the whole spa collection....

I'm curious about the Rustic Lodge one too actually.

Sorry I know I was only supposed to pick one scent but I couldn't!

They have a great catalog of scents!

DEBIJOT said...

Lilacs and violets sounds good.

I have never used any Scentsy products, but I have heard nothing but good things about the line. I am trully wondering what Autumn Sunset and Cinnamon Cider would smell like. Then I flipped the page, OMG! French Kiss, Twilight, and Satin Sheets are calling my name!
