Introduction to... *Scentsy*

I was contacted about 2 weeks ago by Lori, an independent consultant from Scentsy in the US. I'd never heard of the company before, and she wondered if she could send me some samples and I review them on here. They arrived today and smell amazing.
Scentsy is a company in the US which specialises in a 'no flame, no soot, no lead' candle. They sell 'scented wickless candles and decorative ceramic warmers, which together provide a safer alternative to burning wicked candles, as there is no flame. The warmers are powered by a low Watt bulb that slowly melts the candle'. Scentsy is only available from local consultants and not from retails stores (in the US- it could be different in the UK?)
Their warmer are so pretty, here are a few from their September 'fall' catalogue:
I believe they normally cost around $30-60, as they're ceramic, and these are also from the 'premium' collection
I was sent a Travel tin, Cinammon Vanilla Scentsy bar and a variety of bar samples. It such a shame 'SMELL-VISION' or 'SMELL-TERNET' haven't been invented because my poor descriptions of the Scentsy bars can't get across how wonderful they actually smell. Lets just say I could smell them before I'd even opened up the envelope! And they are still making my room smell wonderful and I haven't even warmed them yet!
I wasn't so keen on the gel scent inside my travel tin, but I LOVED the cinnamon vanilla, it smells good enough to eat. I can't wait to use it, its perfect timing for Christmas too as it's a lovely festive scent.
I got sent about 17 small sample fragrance bars and I really loved most of them, it was hard choosing favourites. But I narrowed it down to 6. These are scents I loved so much I am considering purchasing some of them.They made my room smell amazing.
The names of them, clockwise, starting from bottom left; Pixi, Lotus Cove, Mandarin Moon, Pumpkin Roll,  Dominica and Neverland. The Pumpkin roll is gorgeous and another festive smelling one, it literally smells like punpkins and cinnamon wafting from a kitchen (probably an american one, as we're not too fussed with pumpkins in the UK!), the Neverland scent is a really nice fresh smell, that reminds me of the sea for some reason, but it doesn't smell of it- if that makes sense?

Overall I think Scentsy is lovely idea, and am looking forward to it coming over the UK (they're recruiting independent UK consultants) and would love to get a warmer (when funds are a bit better!) I love that it doesn't need a flame.
Thanks for reading, have any of you heard of this brand before, or like the idea of a wickless candle?

(Please note, although these sample were gifted to me, I was in no way sponsored etc. to do this post. all opinions are my own!)

    1. Molly,
      Scentsy is available in the European market. I would love to get you a copy of the UK catalog and possibly some samples. You can e-mail me at LoriRMorgan@gmail.com. Because I am based in the US I am unable to sell in the European market, but I am able to recruit new consultants onto my Scentsy team in the European market. Right now Scentsy is very new in the European market and there are less than 1500 consultants in the UK, Ireland, and Germany and consultants in the European market can now ship orders to Austria, France, Italy, Spain, and Luxembour. I don't know if you are looking for some extra income. If you are starting a Scentsy business and doing one home party a week could make an extra £400 a month. While I can not give you incentives for joining my team I can tell you I invest back into my team with incentive gifts for high sales and recruitment. I do weekly training calls or if you need one on one coaching I can call or skype. Starting my Scentsy business has been the best thing I have ever done. I hope join my team.

      Have a "Scent"sational Day
      Lori
