It's official! I can FINALLY share what Scentsy will be launching into next:
Sincerely Scent Online Card Store
On March 1, Scentsy will launch an innovative product line extension: an online greeting card store featuring over 150 original, customizable, SCENTED greeting cards. You and your customers will be able to order cards online and have them delivered to the recipients' addresses without buying stamps or going to the post office. You can personalize cards with a customized message, your favorite photo, a digital signature, AND a scent sample from the Scentsy Favorites collection. That's right--each card will be mailed with a sample infused with Scentsy fragrance, allowing the recipient to experience Scentsy as soon as they open the envelope. There are cards for every occasion, from birthdays and anniversaries to holidays. Cards can be ordered through my website. Cards are purchased with credits, which are available in bundles of 10, 25, or 100. One card equals one credit, and includes postage. Each card costs $2.85 (USD) / $3.82 (CAD).
Scentsy uses a food-grade petroleum based wax. Scentsy chose this wax because of its superior scent loading ability, melting point and firmness. Scentsy looked at their waxes, but could not find a good quality vegetable based wax that held the scents.
The type of wax we use is a not an issue, with regard to the chemicals released while burning any traditional wicked candles, including tea lights. Scentsy Warmers only warm the scent out of the wax - the wax remains in the warmer, thus there is no danger of chemicals being released into the home. You will end up with a piece of non smelling wax that you dispose of and replace with a new Scentsy candle bar. No wick, no match, no flame, no soot, no smoke, and no wax evaporation!
Scentsy’s food grade petroleum wax is the same wax they spray on apples in the grocery stores, to give them their shine.
Scentsy fragrances are made from an oil which is the highest grade of oil before processing.
Also see our new article on Scentsy Fragrance. See what maxes our wax and fragrance better then the rest.
A few years ago, if someone had asked me whether I preferred synthetic to essential oils, I would have assumed they were discussing the kind of motor oil I used in my car. Today, the questions of synthetic and essential oils are always fragrance specific. At Scentsy we use both. More specifically, Scentsy fragrances typically contain a mixture of natural and synthetic fragrance oils. The argument that “synthetics aren’t as good as natural (oils)” is, from my perspective, a myth.
There is a laundry list of reasons why, but without synthetic fragrance oils our fragrance options would be highly limited—unless we were comfortable with mass deforestation or the unrestrained use of limited or endangered resources. Not to mention the financial costs of those resources. Musk notes are a great example, as “natural” musk oils are not distributed within the fragrance industry as a whole (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musk). If it wasn’t for synthetic fragrance oils, the Siberian Musk Deer (and many other similar animals) would likely be extinct. However, not all synthetic oils are created equal—so we still have the challenge (and fun) of identifying the right raw material.
Meridian, Idaho (January 4, 2012) – Scentsy, Inc., a growing international leader in fragrance, today announced Pink Pepper as the ScenTrend™ for 2012. Based on evaluation and trend analysis by fragrance experts at Scentsy and prominent international fragrance houses, the ScenTrend designation identifies the up-and-coming fragrance note for the new year, which consumers will find in home as well as fine fragrances. A study in contrasts, Pink Pepper’s multidimensional nature exudes sweet, floral yet spicy aromas, giving it appeal as both a gourmand and romance fragrance note. Distilled from the rose-hued berries of the Peruvian pepper tree and used as a spice in cooking, Pink Pepper has a dry, fresh scent with hints of angelica and juniper-like notes. This bold yet warm fragrance stimulates renewed energy in any environment.
“Pink Pepper fits the mood of our time,” explains Heidi Thompson, President of Scentsy, Inc. “It’s a spirited fragrance note that offers inspiration to find adventure, be romantic or simply add a touch of excitement to any aspect of life. We’re pleased to highlight Pink Pepper’s inspiring personality in Scentsy’s home fragrances.”
Tom Pastre, President of Creatique, a fragrance industry consulting firm in Cresskill, New Jersey, said selecting a fragrance note of the year shows Scentsy’s passion for the art of fragrance creation and perfumery. “Pink Pepper is appropriate for these challenging times because it’s uplifting and has a certain optimism to it. It’s bold and zesty, but has a warmth that’s comforting,” said Pastre. “It’s the contrasts that make it exciting: feminine and floral, yet sexy and exotic.”
Fragrance lovers can experience the contrasts of Pink Pepper in Pixie, Scentsy’s February 2012 Scent of the Month.Pixie is a mischievous moonscape of pink pepper, mandarin and heliotrope deepened by exotic teakwood and vanilla oak. Scentsy’s Spring/Summer 2012 Catalog highlights fragrances containing Pink Pepper, and for those interested in designing their own signature scents with ScenTrend 2012, Pink Pepper will also be available as a stand-alone Scentsy Bar—ideal for mixing.
Scentsy developed its expertise in identifying and defining fragrance trends through detailed analysis and evaluation of hundreds of fragrance notes, raw materials and finished scents. The company’s high-quality fragrances have received an overwhelmingly positive response from consumers since Scentsy’s start in 2004.

Scentsy is great because the parties are simple, fun, and interactive! You wouldn’t buy a car without test driving it, would you? So why would you purchase home or fine fragrance without giving it a sniff? The best place to test drive new warmers and scents is at a Scentsy party, bar none. You bring together friends, food, and fragrance—how could that not be fun?
And a Scentsy party is the only place to find out just how different your noses can be. The same scent can be passed around the room and receive “best fragrance ever!” applause from one side and “who would warm that?” disapproval from the other. No matter if you agree or disagree with your neighbor’s opinion, it’s sure fun to hear what they have to say!
Have you head abou Scentsy's solid perfume yet? If not now is the perfect opportunity to learn what it is all about.
Scentsy's new perfume line comes in 5 different scents:
Encahnted Mist:Romantic blend of juicy apples, enhanced and sweetened by rose petals and rich jasmine.
Love Story:Innocent pink jasmine and sensual amber embraced by luscious dark chocolate.
My Wish:A confection of earthy fig, sweet violet, and playful marshmallow will have you wishing for more.
Satin Sheets:Sensual and earthy sandalwood perfectly paired with rich, warm vanilla.
Simply Irresistable:Lavender with a strong, woody background of amber, moss and musk.
These roll on perfumes work by applying it to the pulse points on your wrists, base of the throat, behind the ears, and the bend in your elbows. Your natural body oils will mix with the perfume and create a unique fragrance that is yours alone!
The solid perfumes are a nice change to spray on perfumes.
