Introducing...The Scentsy Experience...

Rewind my life to pre-children, around 15 years ago. It's December and I am New York!
One thing that immediately brings the memory to the fore, is the smell of apple and cinnamon. Seems like a strange association doesn't it? Yet I can so clearly remember both Saks Fifth Avenue and Macy's stores were heavily scented with these fragrances. Decorated with stunning Christmas ornaments throughout, the air was tingling with the aroma. Countless times since my exciting shopping experiences in one of the most fabulous cities in the world, these same scents today, will bring back these wonderful memories as if it were yesterday.

Scents provide one of the most powerful links to our memories. There is scientific basis to this.
Having been a fully qualified aromatherapist prior to the arrival of my family, one thing I do miss these days is scent. Nice scents! Sadly I have been unable to burn my essential oils due to actual flames and the safety fears I have of these around my children.

Allow me to introduce the Scentsy experience:

Ceramic burner from the Scentsy Element Warmers range
in the Carrey style
Scentsy wax bars.
A massive range of beautiful aromas available
Scentsy is an American company that launched here in Australia on September 1st 2013. Scentsy began nine years ago in the United States. It has since become a huge success in America, Europe, Mexico, Puerto Rico Guam and Canada.
So how does it work? A heated element ceramic burner warms a specially formulated wax. The wax is entirely safe with no flame, no soot and no smoke. Burning a Scensty burner in your home creates a beautiful atmosphere. There are a huge 65 scents to choose from in their range.
Let me just say, I have been in fragrance Heaven since I have been using mine!
I was sent a box load to try for review. There are extraordinary fragrances with names such as:
White Tea And Cactus, Luna, 'Jet, Set, Go,' Lime And Kiwi Cantaloupe and Black Raspberry And Vanilla to name a few from their extensive range. The fragrance 'bars' themselves come in small packs of eight wax squares which snap off. They can be melted individually as they are or blended together to create your own atmosphere in limitless possibilities.
To use, simply place a small cube in your ceramic burner, plug the burner into the wall and switch it on. That's it!
Within around 20 minutes my house began to smell sensational. What I loved most about the fragrances is that they smell natural. The aromas are like expensive fragranced candles but with definite advantages: There is no smoky smell (a downside of candles) and no nasty chemical smell (like home air sprays).
Best of all, there are no dangers whatsoever. The Scensty burners warm to release the fragrance but do not get hot. They are safe to touch. Even the wax cubes, which melt into liquid are only lukewarm to touch. The wax is non-toxic and food-grade so of no harm if ingested by curious kids. (Naturally, do supervise your children and still use caution wherever the burners are being used).

 The range of burners available are extremely attractive and there is a large selection to choose from. Every home décor has been considered. Everything from chevron designs to plain designs can be chosen from their extensive catalogue.
Scentsy offer more than just wax and burners. There is also a laundry range, children's range (featuring gorgeous soft toys which contain a safe, sealed scented sachet), Scentsy room sprays and a bath and body range. There is a Scentsy product to suit every individual or family.
I really am hooked on it now!

  1. Oh wow. Looks great. That burner is gorgeous! I've not used melts before, but I'm a big incense and essential oils fan.

    1. Bec if you like those then you'd really love these! I am really impressed!

  2. I'm totally in - I love a nice smelling house, but hard with candles and flames and kids! I think I might have been in NY 15 years ago smelling the same smells - I miss those big department stores and their Xmas displays!! xx

    1. Things we miss! I'd love the opportunity to do that again.

  3. Oops my comment didn't answer the questions - I have windows open ALL the time to try and get rid of stinky smells - and I do use candles but worry about them and my boisterous boys!!!

  5. I am Jennifer Hudson's Independent Director with Scentsy. I'd like to say we would love to have Emily or anyone else interested in Scentsy join our team. We do have a private Facebook page to help you get started, so the distance won't be an issue. It is a simple, beautiful product that is wildly successful here in the U.S. Let us help you turn Scents into Income!! (Email Jennifer to get started).

  6. Ooh I used to love burning oils etc pre-kids so would totally be up for trying out Scentsy. My fave scent is my wedding flowers - oriental lillies and I love the smell of passionfruit (though not a fan of eating it). ;-)

  7. I have windows open constantly - my only strategy so far. Not looking forward to having a teenaged boy!

  8. Although not oil type scents, my fave scents are the smell of rain and the smell of my son when he was a baby.

  9. Eva, you may enjoy the newborn nursery scent. The newborn nursery scent is described as "Fresh clean and powdery, this dreamy scent evokes memories of cradling your little ones." Gold Coast Mum would probably enjoy the Kahiko Hula. This scent is described as, "Say 'aloha' with exotic passion fruit, mango, and papaya."

    If anyone is interested in looking at a catalogue just send a quick email and I will get you a PDF copy to review.

  10. I love sugar cookie because it makes me hungry :)

  11. Oh wow! The names of those scents sound so delicious... white tea, kiwi cantaloupe, black raspberry.... yum! Hope I win!

  12. I love smelly things! I quite often burn candles, but I do worry about the safety of doing so around the kids. These look awesome

  13. I have to say, with a toddler in the house, no matter how hard I try, the nappy smell always lingers! So boy could I do with these! :)

    1. Mmm, very familiar with that smell! These would definitely take care of that!

  14. I use scents to mask the odour of my pets.I love vanilla, musk and frangipani most. The containers are very pretty :)

  15. What a great idea!! I am always scared to use mine due to the whole safety thing but this solves the problem! Thanks for the heads up!

  16. My favourite scent is vanilla. It always remins me f warm summer days as I was growing up!

  17. I use mainly musk as it reminds me of being home with my parents as Mum used to always burn musk incence sticks

  18. Love inscence...change fragrances each day, rotating a few favs! Love this good is a safe burner? Great idea!

  19. Those ceramic burners are beautiful! I do love my incense and fragrant candles :)

  20. I love the smell of vanilla - it always reminds me of my Grandma's baking - so the Black Raspberry And Vanilla sounds like my idea of heaven!

  21. I love that these Scentsy products are so child friendly and safe.

    1. That is exactly why I switched to Scentsy. Plus, I had a bad habit of forgetting to blow out my candles. Now the only time I use them is in case of emergency when there is no electricity.

  22. Wow! Really impressed with the look of this product..I love that there is no flame at all. I don't like my little on near an open flame. I love the smell of jasmine. These scents would all be amazing though I'm sure.

  23. Whenever I smell a musky aroma I am reminded of my Dad who passed away 28yrs ago, and I know that he is with me, always offering me love and support

  24. Hot Mince pies....its my favorite scent because it is all Christmas.

    1. Sonia, I have just eaten one - my favourite food of the year!

  25. Summer rain on a 40 degree day, when it hits the scorching bitumen of the road. It always takes me back to the carefree days as a child for reasons I don't know why!
    - Diana O.

    1. Diana, that is just so poetic! I love that smell too only I hadn't realised until you wrote it here! Thank you for sharing :D

  26. I love that sweet smell of photocopy handouts...reminds me of being in primary school

    1. I love that smell too (though it's probably not that healthy)! I have the same memories when I smell it too.

  27. Anything sweet and fruity, it just makes everything smell so fresh and clean :)

  28. Orange always makes me think of my dad :)

  29. Vanilla, it evokes yummy childhood memories. It's comfort food in the air!

  30. I have just been reading all about this new addition to the aroma market, looks fabulous :)

  31. In case you have been thinking about joining Scentsy I thought I would share the incentive trip that consultants can earn.

    Each year, Scentsy Family Consultants have the opportunity to earn an all-expenses-paid incentive trip. The very first Scentsy Family Incentive Trip for Scentsy Australia Consultants will take you to TWO exciting American destinations. The trip will take place from 5-14 July 2014. This includes travel days.

    First, incentive trip earners will let loose in sunny Los Angeles, California! Go star spotting where the celebrities hang out; shop ‘til you drop on fabulous Rodeo Drive; rub shoulders with Mickey, Minnie, and the gang at Disneyland. There’s no agenda: it’s your time to spend however you want and options are abundant!

    Next, trip earners will fly to St. Louis, Missouri, to join North American Consultants at the 10-year anniversary celebration — the 2014 SCENTSY FAMILY REUNION! Trust us: This will be a party to remember!

    I will be at the 2014 SCENTSY FAMILY REUNION! So, if you join my team we can meet face to face when you earn the trip!
