I am addicted to nice smells - I go OTT with candles and I'm a huge fan of Yankee Candle tarts and candles! I also love oil burners, I have one from the Body Shop and a box full of oils and Yankee tarts, but I noticed recently that I wasn't smelling them as much as I used to!
Maybe I've gotten used to the scents I usually use, maybe it's because I have four dogs, or maybe it's because I almost always have the back door open during the day! Whatever the reason, I wanted something more powerful - not overbearing or sickly, but something you noticed as soon as you came into the house!
So I contacted a Scentsy consultant who lives in my area, and trialled a Scentsy warmer and some waxes for a weekend to see if it suited me.
All I can say is - wow! I am completely converted. I know for a fact I won't be buying any more oils or Yankee tarts, that's for sure! The scents don't last half as long as the Scentsy waxes - I turned my Scentsy on yesterday and when I got up this morning I could still smell it in the room! It's by no means too strong, but definitely not weak either!
I bought myself the Black Zebra Element Warmer (£25), and two Scentsy bars - Shaka and Simply Lemon. The bars are amazing value - for £5 you get 8 generous cubes - I use two at a time, but I only used one during my trial period and it was just as good. They can be used a few times - I'm told that two squares together would do you around 24 hours but I really do believe you can get longer out of them (I'll update this at a later stage and see how long mine lasted!)

The brochure is full of beautiful warmers (there really is one for everybody - no matter what your taste in decor) and amazing scent bars - there are nearly too many to choose from! It even has a Bath and Body section, with handcreams, shower creams, fragrances, hand soap and even Scentsy for your clothes! (I'll be trialing these soon - stay posted for a review!)

I would genuinely recommend investing in a Scentsy Warmer, and I'd buy a few bars at a time for variety! Be warned though - it's addictive! I've already written a list for my next order lol!
If you're in Lisburn or the surrounding areas I'd recommend going to Gemma, my consultant. You can find her on facebook here.
