New to Scentsy? Get a “Buddy” and Enjoy the Experience


Have you ever tried Scentsy?  I have to admit, I was a Scentsy virgin till just a few days ago.  I was offered the opportunity to sample and review different Scentsy products and couldn’t begin to tell you just how excited I was.  I’d always heard great things about this company, but honestly had never even seen it.

When my package arrived, I think I may have kissed the delivery man (quite frankly), and I couldn’t wait to open it.  I’ve admitted it before (but NEVER at any meetings or anything) that I am a candle junkie.  So, I was a little skeptical, because nothing has been able to convert me.

I was also given the honor of my very own Scentsy Buddy.

I love my Buddy. She was soft, cuddly, and smelled awesome.  These would make a wonderful gift for children of all ages. My wonderful little bear had a zipped pocket on the back where I inserted a scented sash.


There are six scentsy stuffed animals to choose from and there may be more released later.

  • Lenny the Lamb
  • Roarbert the Lion
  • Mollie the Monkey
  • Ollie the grey elephant
  • Penny the Pig
  • Ribbert the Frog


I’ve already ordered a pair for Christmas.  If you’ve done the math, you know why. . 1 mom, 2 gremlins, and 1 bear… (yes this one is MINE… lol).

Oh, and guess what? For everyone who makes a purchase from Vanessa on her site, she is giving away a free bar of scents.

About Scentsy: 

This simple idea was born when two stay-at-home moms began selling decorative warmers designed to melt scented wax with the heat of a light bulb instead of a traditional wick and flame. They wanted a safe, wickless alternative to scented candles.

For more on how this simple idea turned into something amazing go here.

About the product:


Scentsy is a safe alternative to the traditional flame candle, making it safer for families like mine with small children.  With so many options available, it can be a little overwhelming, but for me the search is over, I’m hooked.  The scent was strong, without being overwhelming, my house smelled DIVINE.  Then of course there is the safety factor, although the wax was hot, I wouldn’t recommend putting your fingers in it, but I’d definitely take THAT on over a fire. Not to mention, the fragrance lasted longer than traditional candles, and have I mentioned they smell divine?



Choosing just ONLY 1 or 2 or 3…

    Any of the christmas holiday scents would be amazing. Christmas is my favorite holiday, spending time with my family while my house actually smells like a holiday. I am a smell-good freak so bring on the scentsy. Thanks so much.

    How in the world are we supposed to make such a touch choice?! Eesh!

    I’ve seen the “Scentsy” stickers on cars, but never seen their products. I think I’m gonna go with “Central Park Pralines” :)
