Scentsy sells quite a wide range of products from personal fragrance to home fragrances. This means initially they concentrate on the candle business – from warmers to wickless candles & room sprays, and secondly they also sell a line called Layers which includes perfumes, body lotions and that sort of products. I was sent a few wickless candles to test out & I have to tell you, they are absolutely amazing! Wickless candles (for those Yankee people – this pretty much means tarts!) are apparently much safer & better quality than actual burning candles – as they can hold more oil (aka release stronger fragrance) & don’t produce smoke, soot or lead. You can choose from a massive range of scents – I’ve tried quite a few already (the little flowers you can see below are testers) and I honestly can’t choose
one I would love more than the others. Some of them smell like
Christmas, some of them like fresh linen, some like roses…there are
over 80 scents altogether, so guess you can’t really blame me for not being able to pick one, aha! The scent is really strong, I would say probably stronger than you get with Yankee candles, and you only need to burn it for a few minutes to have it developed throughout your whole flat! The actual products come in a form of Scentsy bars (that’s the larger bar with little break-off portions). You use them just like you’d use a tart – Scentsy sells their own oil burners (warmers), which are really pretty, but obviously you can use just the one you’ve got at home. I personally have got one in each room, so I can burn different fragrances in each at the same time – a stronger fresher one for the living room & a soothing relaxing one for the bedroom.
I think that’s a brilliant idea, a little bit like Avon or Oriflame in
the beauty industry, but all about candles! Once you are assigned a
consultant, you can pick a type of party which is the most suitable for
your needs – you can have an actual get together with your friends in
your house and a Scentsy lady brings over samples for you to sniff
& try or you can be sent a basket full of samples which you can keep
for a certain period of time, share it with your friends & family,
and then decide what you actually want to buy! Pretty innovative for
candle industry, don’t you think? Read more on Scentsy here!
