Smells Really Good Scentsy Review!



For anyone not familiar with Scentsy, they are a direct-selling candle company. Their products are sold by over 40,000 independent sales reps known as Independent Consultants. And one of those consultants generously offered to sponsor a review and giveaway here!
James has his own Scentsy website, called Smellsreallygood.com
Here you can find the full line of Scentsy Warmers (full-size, mid-size and plug-in), Design-It-Yourself, Scentsy Fragrance Bars and Bricks, and other great home fragrance products!

I was able to choose a warmer and 3 bars for review.  I picked the Cherry Blossom Warmer. This is a beautiful warmer with raised branches and very detailed blossoms on a soft blue background.  It adds beauty to any room!  I love the idea behind the Scentsy warmers, too. They plug in and use a low-wattage light bulb to warm the brick/bar. With this system, you don't have to worry about open flames, so it definitely provides more peace-of-mind than burning candles!

For my 3 fragrances, I chose the Green Tea Smoothie, Rustic Lodge (a "guy" scent), and, of course, Mocha Doodle! My favorite is definitely the  Mocha Doodle. It gives my room such a coffee shop aroma!  Obviously, I love coffee, and sometimes I think I like the smell better than actually drinking it! (Just kidding, but really...is there anything that smells better than a coffee shop?) This scent combines coffee beans and cocoa with sugar and caramel, and gives off a delightful fragrance!
The Green Tea Smoothie also smells delicious! (I know, I seem to like food/beverage scents the best :) t's a lighter scent, yet very quickly fills the room. Has a luscious fruity hint to it!
The Rustic Lodge scent is from the "Scentsy Man" collection, so I got my brothers' opinion on this one. They both really like it! Although, I have to admit, I really liked this one myself, too!  This is named very well-it has a strong cedar fragrance, with a hint of oak and musk. If your husband or son doesn't like the "girly" fragrances, try one of the scents from the Scentsy Man collection-I'm sure they'll love it!





I am really impressed with the Scentsy products. The warmer/fragrances really work great!  I have always been a big fan of oil warmers with tealight candles as the heat source. I am sold on the Scentsy warmers and fragrances now, though!  They provide a much stronger smell...I use mine in my room, and can smell it all the way out in the living room! So many candles just don't really spread the fragrance while burning...not a problem with Scentsy products!


Another plus with the Scentsy products is that you can easily change fragrances without wasting any of your bar or brick.  Just completely melt the fragrance that is in your warmer, pour it back into the original packaging, and clean the dish out with a paper towel (very little gets left in there). Then you're ready to try a new fragrance!  The melted wax will cool and resume it's former shape, ready for the next time you want to use it!

  21. I saw a Scentsy lady at the fair last year with a full size Jack-o-Lantern Scentsy warmer. I wish they had that one on the website... =[

    My second choice is the Merino Full-Size Scentsy Warmer. Looks like caramel! Perfect for fall!

    The three scents I would choose are...
    *Caramel Spice Scentsy Bar
    *Autumn Sunset Scentsy Bar
    *Clove and Cinnamon Scentsy Bar
