Who wants to try some Scentsy!? *A Giveaway!*

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!

Now for the giveaway!!  Lindsay has so kindly offered to give one of my readers a $20 credit to her Scentsy website (by the way, isn't her daughter the cutest!!?) to use toward whatever you would like to try!  They have so many great products to offer.  Here's what we would like you to do in order to be entered to win:

1) Be a public follower of my blog and leave me a comment telling me you are.  (mandatory entry)
2) Please visit Lindsay's Scentsy page and view the online catalog.  Leave me a separate comment than the first entry with what you would like to order if you won this giveaway.  Please include your email address so I can contact you if you win.  (mandatory entry)

The giveaway will end at 11:59pm MST on Friday March 9th.  I hope to be able to pick the winner (a random drawing) that weekend, but that depends on when our baby girl decides to come out! :)  She is due any day now.  I will definitely have the winner posted as soon as possible and you will be on your way to getting some great smelling Scentsy goodies!  To be clear, regardless of when baby comes, the giveaway time period will still end this Friday night.

Good Luck! :)

I just viewed the scentsy catalog. I will have a hard time choosing! But I know I like the plug ins, I like floral or clean cotton, breezy like scents and I love the idea of the travel kits. Great for my upcoming vacation to NZ!

I'm addicted to Scentsy! I already have four warmers, so I would stock up on scents. I would definitely get some more blackraspberry vanilla, satin sheets, and possibly try the sticky cinnamon bun!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Love your blog Ryan, it is so fun to still get to know what is going on with you even though you live away from us now!

Just checked out the Scentsy catalog. I would get some of the vanilla cream bars, chocolate mocha bars, or some of the tins to use in my classroom. 2nd graders really stink after recess!
