Last month I got an opportunity to try some scentsy products. This is out of the norm for me since I normally only stick to candles that have "surprises" in them, but as it was I know of a few companies that sell tarts/melters with things in them and knew I would need a warmer if I managed to get my hands on some. I was fortunate enough to find a distributor who was running a contest for free products. I joined her Group page, Mickie's Scentsy Customers (please note this link leads to her group page and you will have to request to join)
After a week of playing games it was obvious I was not going to win as I could not afford the big ticket entries that came from purchasing product. I was lucky though, one of the women who was purchasing just to help out one of the girls who was having a party won second place. She had no need for the warmer so she gave it to me.
After explaining what I wanted the warmer for Mickie was kind enough to work out a deal we could both live with and upgraded me to a large one instead of a plug in. I chose the Rosalyn Pictured Below:
The Next part of the prize pack I won was a Scentsy bar. My fiance and I could not agree on a scent so I gave her a list of three and just asked her to pick one for us. She did better, she sent me one of the two I wanted and the one my fiance wanted.
I got Perk me up:
It smells phenomenal! It's a nice strong coffee smell with just the right amount of sweetness, it's a perfect balance.
The second scent she sent me was Blueberry Cheesecake:
My word people trust me when I say if you like strong scents this is a good choice. It smells really good but I will warn you NOT to melt these right next to you or in a small space. As much as we liked it we found out immediately this should not be melted right by your head in the bedroom. It was a bit overbearing and it actually gave my fiance a slight headache after about an hour. The next day we tried again only this time I melted them on the mantel in the living room which is a big open space and nowhere near where anyone sat. It was much better like that and even made me crave some cheesecake.
I also decided to give mixing them a shot. My favorite dessert is a cup of coffee and a slice of cheesecake so I gave it a shot. Let me tell you what, I fell in love! The coffee had just enough bitterness in the scent to cut back the overbearing sweetness of the Blueberry Cheesecake perfectly and I have been burning them this way ever since.
I must warn my lovely candle ladies to beware. If you're only interested in candles that come with jewelry, be aware, the quality of scentsy's will make you aware of what they SHOULD smell like but rarely do. You may risk being forever disappointed in the quality of your current candle company.
Thank you Mickie for the opportunity to review these products. If my fans and followers could, give her a shout out for taking her chances on a new blogger. Not to mention the bravery as well because I am fastly getting known in the candle community as a no nonsense and often brutal reviewer and I know most of you wouldn't want it any other way.
