Well, hello lovelies! Hope this blog post is finding you well on this Wednesday morning. I, on the other hand, have felt better. There's some kind of sickness going around at work, and I seem to be fighting it! I have been trying to fight it all weekend and yesterday, it just wore me down! Summer is NOT the time to get sick, so go away whatever you are!

So, I want to talk about Scentsy! My cousin had a Scentsy party recently, and I was bummed that I had to miss it. But, being the great cousin she is, she hooked me up with the goods anyways!

For those of you who may not be familiar with Scentsy,it is a safe, wickless candle system that uses a lightbulb to warm scented wax. You can find more information on their website.

Yesterday after work, I meandered on over to the salon she works at, parked my behind in the chair next to her station, and spent a good 20 minutes smelling all the delicious scents they have to offer! There is something you should know about me. I am ADDICTED to anything that smells good. Perfume, candles, air fresheners, literally anything that smells good. So as you can imagine, I went a little (okay, a lot) overboard.

After smelling every scent, with the help of the most adorable nine year old who was getting her hair cut by my cousin, I picked out some scents and a warmer! Here is what I ordered:

The mid-size warmer, Mission Slate. I had a full-sized warmer picked out, but my cousin explained that the full-size warmer is best for large areas (preferably an open layout where the scent can fill multiple rooms) because it tends to be overwhelming. She suggested I pick a mid-size warmer and I fell in love with the look of this one!

And the scents!

I picked out two of the Scentsy Man fragrances. (Let's be honest ladies, men smell good!)
Duke - A charismatic blend of cardamom intertwined with mahogany, heightened by golden amber — the scent of a sophisticate.
Echo - Sophisticated, metropolitan fragrance of manly spice notes, Mediterranean citrus and herbs, and bitter orange.
A Scentsy Spa fragrance:
Mediterranean Spa - Relax with this smooth, fresh, breezy scent.
A Scentsy Favorite fragrance:
Luna - White florals — jasmine, sweet pea, and freesia — juicy berries, and sandalwood shimmer like moonlight.
And, last but not least, a Scentsy Romance fragrance:
Enchanted Mist - Romantic blend of juicy apples, enhanced and sweetened by rose petals and rich jasmine.
{All descriptions of the fragrances we found here on the Scentsy website.}

See, I wasn't lying when I said I went a little crazy! Do any of you lovely ladies have a Scentsy warmer? I was approached (well, tweeted) by a Scentsy consultant who asked if I had ever thought about becoming a consultant myself. I'm not really into recruiting randoms and friends and guilting them into having a party so I can sell my product, but I wouldn't mind being able to sell to family and friends and all my wonderful followers in Bloggerville who legitimately want the product!

What do you think? Should I do it?!?!

xoxo, J

I love Scentsy! My favorite scents are Skinny Dippin, Camu Camu, and all the tropical ones. I have one that smells like pina coladas and I can't think of the name but I LOVE IT. Also I have one that smells like Kool Aid which I also love. :)

I think you should DO IT. The starting kit has awesome goodies in there that you might want anyway. ;) You can plug it on your blog/FB And see where it goes!

Well considering it is only $99 to become a consultant I would suggest you do it the next time you need to get new scents because you are obvs obsessed and your mom/ friends/mabes blog peeps will see yours then want some of their own. I heard when you sign up to sell you get a certain amount free yourself! It would have been nice to know about this and sell it up in Sparbs dorms!
