Before I had children I loved to burn candles and have the house smelling good. Now with two small kids in the house burning candles really isn't practical for me especially around my youngest. Since my 2 year old is into every thing I am always afraid that he is going to get burned if I put a candle out. So today I want to introduce you to a great company called ScentSationals!
How does ScentSationals work? ScentSationals' wickless wax warmer combines light, fragrance and artistic design to create a personalized ambiance in any room. A soft 25w light bulb nested within a decorative ceramic vessel is the heat source that melts the wax cubes in a dish at the top of the warmer. ScentSationals warmer-wax combination creates a relaxing, decorative atmosphere while ﬁlling your home or office with a wonderful aroma. (from Scentsationals.com)
For my review I received a great package that included a Butterfly WhitePlug-In, Brown Damask ScentSationals Warmer, and 4 bars including Care Package, Black Raspberry, Fresh Baked Bread, & Sparkling Citrus!
The first thing I tested out was the Plug In Warmer. I used the Sparkling Citrus bar in the plug in first and took it straight to the bathroom. After about an hour of having the warmer plugged in I noticed the smell was fragrant and lingering, it even had drifted into the bedroom. It was fantastic! The plug in warmers are also great to use as night lights with no wax in them of course. They are perfect for small spaces like laundry rooms where you really don't have a whole lot of room to use the bigger warmers but you still want the space to smell good. I really love the design of the Butterfly plug-in warmer with the raised dots, dragonflies, and butterflies gives it a nice touch.
In keeping with my motif I chose the Brown Damask warmer to review, I absolutely LOVE the design of it and it matches perfectly with my decor. The pattern of the warmer is absolutely gorgeous and can be displayed all year. So one thing I noticed about the larger warmer it took longer for the wax to melt on this one. I don't know if it's because of the ceramic is thicker than the plug in or if the bulb isn't as strong but it did take quite a bit longer for the wax to melt. No biggie for me though because once it did melt the smell was amazing! My whole entire living room AND kitchen smelled wonderful! Being that the cord is long I would recommend putting this type of warmer on a kitchen counter especially if you have children.
My favorite thing about ScentSationals is their wax selection. They have over 60 different scents to choose from. I received 4 which I mentioned before. One of the questions I had was how long does the wax actually last? Here's the answer to my question: The number of days each wax lasts varies depending on the individual wax scent, and the amount of time the warmer is operated each day. Some scents last longer than others.
If you really love to burn candles like I do this really is a money saver. I can tell you I was spending $25 on a large candle jar from a well known company (no names will be mentioned) that would last like 70 hours. ScentSational wax bars retail for $2.99. So you figure the math.
One black raspberry wax cube lasted me about 6-7 hours and again that is depending on the person and the scent. Even after I turned the warmers off for the day the wonderful smell still lingered.
ScentSationals would make a perfect gift for Mother's Day or a birthday gift! I think I know what I'm getting my Mom! I hope she's not reading :)
ScentSationals products are very affordable. Starting at just $2.99 for the wax, $17.99 for the warmers, and $14.99 for the plug in's and are available online in their store. They also offer free shipping on $50 or more!
