I have always loved the ambiance candles create, from their soft, warm glow to their comforting scents, but frankly, I rarely burn them anymore. Maybe it’s because I have a curious toddler puttering about the house, or maybe it is because of my tabby cat. About 4 years ago when he was still a kitten, he got a little too curious and after sniffing around the candles, decided to walk OVER the jar and caught fire. Luckily, he was so startled that he jumped faster than lightning, which extinguished the flames instantly. I think that he learned his lesson, but it still makes me nervous to leave the room on the rare occasion that I light a candle when company is over.
Well after this review I have literally put all of my candles in the garage for our next yard sale. I am in love with Scentsy! I had heard of the name before this review, but didn’t quite know what it was all about. I knew it was a “party product” and a gal I know had a party the other month I was not able to attend and to be honest I thought it was old-fashioned candles. In my opinion, Scentsy candles are a great space-saving, safer alternative to traditional candles or tea-light-powered scent warmers, and I do not reserve a yummy smelling home just for guests anymore!
I have been using my Scentsy warmer 1-2 hours a day since beginning this review and I am hooked. It serves as a soft glowing light and air freshener, plus the bricks last forever! I have probably burned my warmer about a dozen hours so far and I haven’t even gotten a third of the way through ONE brick. For even more savings you can buy the 1 lb. scent brick bars as well. I l like the number of scents (over 80!) and warmers they have to choose from so you can match it with the decor or space of each room you use them in.
I chose to review the Riverbed warmer (pictured above) with the Sticky Cinnamon Buns Bars and loved that I could tie the warmer’s earthy appeal into either my Asian or with my country decor. I just loved the simplistic beauty of it, but if you are in the market for bold, ornately decorated or sports-themed warmers they have plenty of those to choose from as well (mid-size and plug-in warmers are also available for those smaller rooms or spaces). I have been in a de-cluttering, organizing mood for the past few months and it is such a good feeling to know that I only need one spot designated for the warmer and the bricks are compact so they store easily.
No more candle clutter or fire hazards…it just makes “scents” ;-). I would definitely like to get a plug in for our bathrooms and try a number of other bar scents. This is a product I would recommend to anyone looking for safer, space-saving alternatives to candles and you have to admit they are much more stylish and seamless in your decor than traditional candles! A perfect gift idea, Scentsy gets two thumbs up in my book.
