It’s Beginning To Smell A Lot Like Christmas! #Scentsy Review

Diane Hidey —  October 30, 2011 — 2 Comments

I am so thrilled to be reviewing a Scentsy product for you. I have entered many blog contests – trying to win a scentsy giveaway, but no luck. I don’t know a Scentsy consultant in my area, so I had never even seen or SMELLED any of their products. When Stacy Mayo, Scentsy Director, agreed to a review/giveaway for my Holiday Gift Guide, I was thrilled.

First, it took me forever to decide which product I would choose. I love the holidays, so I looked through the Holiday Collection. Love-so-many! My eye was drawn to the night lights, because I have so many places for them in my house. And then, I found the ONE! I have a huge collection of Nativities, so when I saw this one–that was it!

My View At Night!

Stacy also included three Scentsy Bars. I ordered one Pumpkin Marshmallow, for immediate use and 2 bricks  of Cinnamon Vanilla. The bars are adorable and so colorful!

My order arrived and I quickly read all the directions for assembling the night light. (screw in the light bulb, twist the base onto the outlet plug!) I immediately broke off a few pieces of the Scentsy bar, plugged it in and turned on the light. I walked away and within 20 minutes I thought someone was baking a pumpkin pie in the kitchen! Stacy also included a grab tab, which is very useful for changing out the scents. I placed it in the wax, turned off the light and waited for the wax to harden. Voila! The wax pops out and I put in the Cinnamon Vanilla scent. Also, incredible! One thing I did notice, the smell is not overpowering, but it is definitely noticeable. Sometimes, with a lit candle, the smell fades. Not so with this product.

So what is Scentsy all about?

Scentsy is the hottest new thing in home fragrance. Their candles are wickless, flameless, no soot, no lead, no worry…perfect for homes with small children, pets, dorm rooms and even assisted living centers or apartments. Piece of mind for parents!


Candle Warmers – Full Size, Mid Size and Plug In. The bases are ceramic and sit over a low watt light bulb (like the kind you probably have in your night lights already). This light slowly melts the wax and releases incredible frangrance into the air.

Scents– Each bar lasts approximately 50-80 hours. There are over 80 scents. Corner Cafe, Holidays, Tropics, Romance, Men,  Baby…you will find one or two you will love! Also available in bricks for economical purchases of a favorite fragrance. Scentsy uses a custom, food-grade paraffin wax blend selected for its superior scent loading capability, melting point and firmness. Made in Idaho and France, there are no phthalates in their products.

Scentsy Buddy – a stuffed animal with a scent pak tucked inside. Perfect to display in a nursery, but durable enough to be carried around by your child.
