Anyone who knows me knows that I am huge on the way my home smells and I have way to many candles if you ask my husband but, I just love the warm inviting scents that come along with candles, but recently since my little man is getting big enough to reach the places I keep my candles when they are burning I have started getting a little worried about lighting them and leaving the room for just a second to put up some laundry and other daily house hold chores! So recently I was told about a new way to make my home smell wonderful with out the danger of flame and the best part is that I could leave it turned on 24 hrs a day if I like and I don’t have to worry when we leave the house, so what am I talking about well it’s a wickless wax burner from ScentSationals and when I was given the opportunity to do a review of a burner and 6 wax samples from ScentSationals I was stoked and couldn’t wait to get started!
About ScentSationals (Taken From Website):
What is a ScentSationals Wickless Candle?
ScentSationals' unique wickless wax warmer combines light, fragrance and artistic design to create a unique, personalized ambiance in any room. A soft 25w light nested within a decorative ceramic vessel provides enough heat to melt wax fragrance cubes in a dish at the top of the warmer. Our unique warmer/wax combination creates a relaxing, decorative atmosphere while acting as a safe heat source to melt ScentSationals Fragrance Cubes, ﬁlling your home or office with a wonderful aroma.
Our highly scented custom waxes provide a rich experience at a fraction of the cost of other scented waxes. We offer a wide variety of scents from tropical getaway to holiday nostalgia, floral bouquets, and fresh from the bakery. For the latest in fragrances browse our online catalogue, or check your local retailer for the current scents. Be sure to check back often as we are continually adding new scents to reflect the current seasons and trends. We are confident you will find the perfect scent to customize your home or office.
Reasons you will love our products:
• Affordable - Our melters and waxes cost less than the competition, yet offer the same great quality.
• Safe - A small 25 watt light bulb heats the wax, no open flames
• Long Lasting - Our highly scented wax lasts for days*
• Beautiful - Decorative styles for your home or office.
• Variety - We have more than 50 different scents to choose from, and are adding new ones and retiring old ones all the time.
*The number of days each wax lasts varies depending on the individual wax scent (some scents last longer than others), and the amount of time the warmer is run each day (our tests are based on running the melter for 2 hours each day).
We were given the opportunity to chose as warmer from the ScentSational website to review and I have to admit it was quite a challenge deciding on which of the beautiful warmers would be the perfect fit in our rustic home décor but we finally decided to go with the Fleur de Lis warmer and I was also surprised with six of their scented wax that included: Candy Cane, Black Raspberry Vanilla, Lemon Chiffon, Vanilla Bean, Fireside and Fresh Cut Pine and let me just say that these scents are perfect for the holiday season and it was love at first sniff!!!
The warmer was super cute and very easy to set up the hardest part of the entire review was trying to decide on which warmer we wanted and where to put the warmer once it arrived! We decide to put it in our bedroom and I immediately decided that we would try the Candy Cane scent brick first and I have to say that this warmer and scent bricks are so much better for us than the traditional candle, now don’t get me wrong I still love my candles and I still burn them in other rooms of the house when “Bug” is napping or at his grandparents but the ScentSationals warmer is just so much more convent and it takes about the same amount of time to have my room smelling great as a candle would, but I think the scent last much longer and it isn’t just contained in my room, it actually fills the whole house in about an hour!!!
The clean up and scent brick change in the warmer is super easy and takes less than five minuets, all you have to do once the brick looses it’s scent ( which I noticed the Candy Cane last about a week or so) just let the wax melt completely and pour in a heat safe container and dispose in the garbage and I simply take a paper towel and wipe the excess wax out of the warmer and add my new scent brick, so it’s super easy!!
I really can’t stress enough about how much I love this wickless system it has really changed the way I think about using candles and wax warmers in my home and I would totally love to have one of these warmers in each room of my house, they are awesome! I leave mine on just about all the time and I have no worries about it tipping over and catching something on fire because the wax is heated with a light bulb so it’s like leaving on a lamp, and I also got a first hand experience about the wax getting spilled and to be honest it doesn’t get hot enough to actually burn your skin bad it is a bit uncomfortable but nothing that will leave blisters and the spill clean up is super easy just wipe it up with a damp cloth and your done!
I have to say that I love all six of the scents we were sent to review but I do have my absolute favorite and I have to say that it’s Candy Cane but I’m also really loving the Fireside scent as well. Now, my husband is loving the Vanilla Bean and Black Raspberry Vanilla scents so we really have no complaints about any of the scents we were sent to review and will def be ordering them all again in the very near future!
With my awesome experience with the ScentSationals warmer and scents I can honestly admit that it’s really changed the way I look at filling my home with fragrance and I don’t think I will be going back to just traditional candles and diffusers any time soon, although I will still use them on occasion I think I’m going to stick with the safer alternate with ScentSationals, and with their huge selection of scents to choose from and their adorable warmers I’m sure I’m going to be able to find the perfect scent and warmer for every season and best of all they are super affordable and it doesn’t make my bank account and husband scream when I talk about ordering scents!!!
If you are looking for the perfect gift this holiday season and want an option other than candles I highly recommend checking out the selection of warmers and scents because I’m a true believer in them and I feel like your getting a lot of bang for your buck when you order from ScentSationals and your sure to find the perfect warmer and scent that will match your personality and scent style!!!
