I am a big Scentsy fan. I love the stuff! I have asthma so candles were makin' it tough for me to breathe sometimes....sooo pssh, who wants that?! Lol
Well, today....at Walmart DH comes over to me as I was looking at something else and he was like "Hey they have stuff like Scentsy." So I go over and see they have a pretty big selection of scents. I begin smelling them, and they smell great. I remember around Christmas-time, my sister and I saw some but they sucked!! They were wintery scents and we hate cinammon, and most of them seemed strong of that.
So anyways, DH liked one of these summery scents and said we should try it. Ok, sure....whatever. We get home, I pop in 2 of the cubes, just as I do with most Scentsy scents. Not even all the way melted and these suckers are STRONG! I am debating on going over to it an pouring some wax back into the container.
Strong, but wonderful smelling. I aint gonna lie. We got the Sugared kiwi melon scent.
I feel almost.....guilty. Because I love Scentsy so much, lol. But as an alternative, AT TIMES, why can't I buy a few of these, right?
What are your thoughts ladies who are scented wax burners?? :D

From what I have experienced they don't last as long because they're not as high quality, and a lot of them are not very strong, but not all of them.



Also sometimes they stain the warmers

Yeah who knows, I haven't had them in for over 2 hours yet so I have no clue of the lifespan of these babies, lol. Scentsy can seriously last a week on 2 cubes in my living room...which is great. I have my burner going every day in my living room, but once in awhile in our room.

I get a week plus.. frickin' rocks 8) especially because I regularly forget to turn my warmers off before I go to bed :lol:



I have Tea Party going in my great room and Luna in my bathroom/bedroom right now. Nothing in the boy's bathroom because the two scents meet in the middle where the bathroom is and I don't want to overdo it :lol:

I haven't smelled Tea Party yet, what's that one like? My neice has Luna, that seems like a soft mellow scent.

ETA: So you're saying, most of the time, your warmers are going like 24/7 and the wax lasts about a week + ?? Do you use 1 or 2 cubes?

the lavender vanilla which made me sick.. The carrot cake, which smells amazing, but didn't last long, and the baked brown sugar which again didn't last long.

Those are Scentsy scents?? I haven't seen any of those, lol.
I had one called Toasted Caramel Sugar, from Scentsy, and I hated it after awhile...like at first, I liked it, But then something changed and I hated it, lol.

I don't run them 24/7 on purpose.. I forget to turn them off some nights though. They last like 3-4 days of 24/7 use, or a week of daytime use. Longer if I don't run them all day.



Tea Party is my absolute FAVORITE! I don't even know how to describe what it smells like.. but I love it. Lol. The description has a bunch of things I've never heard of in it :lol: so it doesn't help.



If you're interested in trying it, I'm offering a free Scentsy bar to anyone who orders from my party today 8) just for the record :lol:

yeah they were in the feb bring back my bar thing, so they aren't ones they usually carry. I loved the way the carrot cake and brown sugar smelled, the scent just wore off super fast. I am still using the first 2 cubes out of the pineapple and cilantro I got from walmart, and the winter ones i got also.
