At the NWA Boutiqe Show a few Saturdays ago, our Motherlode booth was right next to a local Scentsy Wickless Candle rep.
We told her that we’d just heard from the national company and were planning a Sweet-Smelling Mother’s Day Giveaway from Scentsy. I had just received my free mid-size (decorative) warmer from the company and a wide array of “Scentsy Bars” to melt in it. I couldn’t wait to get home and try more of the fragrances — and it was fun to see all the different warmer options on display right beside us all day. Judging from the sheer number of ceramic warmers — and the number of women who walked up to Melanie’s booth and happily cried “Scentsy!” — there’s definitely enough variety to fit every mama’s style.
The company said if we liked the product, they’d be willing to ship out five warmers — and great-smelling Scentsy bars — to five of our nwaMotherlode readers.
Well, we did and they are!
How to win Scentsy for yourself: We wanted to do this giveaway so that the five winners would have their goodies in hand by Mother’s Day, May 9. All you have to do is hit the orange comment button below and tell us your favorite “type” of scent. (Here’s a link to the fragrance options.) They have a wide array of fragrances under the following categories: bakery, tropical, spring & summer, spa, romance and cafe. Chances are, with so many choices, they probably have a Scentsy bar to match your mood or taste.
Don’t forget to tell your friends about this giveaway to increase your chances of winning! We’ll give you an extra “vote” for every person you tell. Just CC us on the email so we’ll know just how many times to throw your name in the hat!
Gwen was already familiar with Scentsy — she owns warmers and some of their plug-ins — but I was a newbie. I started out with the bar Inner Peace and continued with White Tea and Cactus, then French lavender. Really, they all smelled fabulous, but I have to say my two favorites are Green Tea Smoothie and Beach. My husband noticed the great smell right away — and he clicks the warmer on if I forget.
I don’t have a small child, but I can definitely appreciate the positives to the wickless aspect of the candle. The scent-infused candle bars are melted by a low-watt light bulb (reminds me of a night light bulb) and it gives off a pleasant glow. Of course, I do have pets and I’m always worrying about them knocking over one of my candles and burning down the house. No flame at all works for me. (I also hate the ugly soot, so this is ideal.)
And since a mama’s job most always involves some not-so-sweet scents, Green Tea Smoothie — or maybe I’ll try Rainforest today — makes for a better-smelling nest.
