I'm sure a lot of you all have heard about Scentsy before, but there still may be a few who don't know what it is. I think the first time I heard about it was sometime last year. One of my friends here has several scents and a large warmer and every time I go to her house, it always smells amazing! SO, I was happy last summer when I saw another blog friend hosting a giveaway for a Scentsy plug-in and one scent. I actually won the giveaway (first time ever!) and was so excited to pick something out. It was last summer, so I went with a plug-in that would match my kitchen and picked a fruity pomegranate scent. Well, they don't make this scent anymore and I think I can see why. It didn't smell the greatest, but I was happy to have just gotten it for free. Anyway, that's why I never sought out to order any Scentsy for Christmas or birthday gifts...because I thought it was hard to pick something I would like from an online catalog. Big mistake. Now that I have smelled many of the scents at other people's houses, you really can't go wrong with any of the scent bars. They all smell so great!
More to the point!...My sweet blog friend, Lindsay, recently became a Scentsy consultant and asked if I would do a review and giveaway on my blog. Of course I said yes, because who doesn't love a good giveaway? Plus, I thought it would be a great chance to try some new scents, find one I loved, and finally get to use my plug-in again.
She promptly placed my order and this arrived in just a few short days...
I wanted to try these three scents, which I thought would be great in my kitchen: Sticky Cinnamon bun, Sunkissed Citrus, and Hazelnut Latte.
Since I just have the plug-in sized warmer, I used one cube at a time. I realized I could have even just used half of a cube and it would have been plenty. They really do last for a long time. I tried to warm through a whole cube before testing the next scent and realized it would take way too long. Lindsay informed me that I could pour it back into the mold and let it set up to reuse later. I did that and was able to try all three scents this week!
So, I first tried the Sticky Cinnamon Bun because it sounded the most yummy. I LOVED this one! It smells more like cinnamon sticks than it does a vanilla icing. But I love anything cinnamon, so I thought it was great.
Then I tried Sunkissed Citrus. I wanted to try this scent because it is already starting to warm up here in Phoenix and I wanted a nice spring/summer scent. This one is amazing as well! It smells just like fresh, cut up grapefruit, orange, and citrus.
Last, I tried Hazelnut Latte. I thought it would be a nice scent to have warming when I'm having coffee during baby girl's morning naps. I really liked this one as well! It really smelled like great coffee...not like "fake candle coffee" smell. It did not smell too sweet or like plastic. ha!
Overall, I am super pleased with all three bars and would definitely order these scents again and would also buy them for friends and family!
