With so many Scentsy products to choose from, as a first time buyer or a returning customer looking for a new fragrance to try, it can sometimes be a little overwhelming looking through all of our warmers and wax bars. Customers often ask me to recommend a wax bar to them or for my opinion on a fragrance. Whilst I am more than happy to do this, it occurred to me that customers are a product’s best critic. With this in mind, I felt it would be beneficial to new or existing customers to have independent reviews on our Scentsy products.

I don't tend to buy spicy scents as this usually gives me the fear of Christmas cinnamon smells, of which I am not a fan. But I braved it for this one, thankfully no Christmas smell fears.... The overriding scent is spicy but it is tamed by the vanilla (I don't get the coconut at all). Funnily enough, it smells different in my two burners in two different locations. The one in the living room smells more of spice whilst the one in the hallway smells more vanilla-y. I wonder if it is because the living room is warmer (what with heating / fire etc.) and that brings out the spice more?? Either way, it is a sultry sensual smell that is at it's best at nighttime burning whether you prefer the colder vanilla-y or warmer cinnamon. Fab!
A new and different scent for me personally as I tend to stick to the woodys smells but this is pleasing as not too sweet or "bakey". Definitely fruity but not sickly with it, the bitterness of the orange is ofset with the plum; it is a strong smelling wax melt - a cube in both my burners (in different rooms) was more than enough. Once it has settled, it does give you smells-connotations of the caribbean island at night around the waters, cocktail in hand... there is something slightly mysterious about it! I personally wouldn't buy a bar again (one bar is more than enough and no chance that there will be other new ones to try when I am ready for a new scentsy haul), but it is a nice diversion from my typical purchases to change up room scents.
Lovely new fall scent for the dark nights - there is a strong woodsy/smoky element but I also detect a slight sweetness that takes the edge off. If you prefer a more masculine scentsy (as I do, my other favourites are Satin Sheets and World Traveller), then definitely give this a whirl, you won't be disappointed!
I was a huge fan of French lavender which has been discontinued so I tried this instead. It almost has a powdery old fashioned lavender scent. I didn't find it fresh smelling at all. In my opinion its not nearly as nice as the French lavender. Really disappointed.

Love the Stargaze Scentsy Diffuser the main reason why I purchased this item was basically when it is changing colours it really is beautiful calming and relaxing taking me to a place ie. I think that these colours going through the streaking mode reminds me of Coral reefs at the bottom of the ocean. I have tried a good few Scentsy oils in my diffuser. It's Very relaxing and it takes You to a place of Serenity and adding Your favourite music helps the atmosphere and ambiance of this Fantastic Scentsy diffuser. Would Highly recommend this product to anyone who is needing help with anxiety and stress.
I was curious to try this Scentsy Bar fragrance as I couldn't imagine what Happy Hibiscus would smell like: as far as I was/am aware, there is no real fragrance to the hibiscus flower. So, how can I describe it, having sampled Happy Hibiscus? To me, it is a gentle fragrance with subtle hints of musk. You know it is evident in the room however not enough for it to be overpowering and draw your attention to it: very pleasant and comforting. I am awarding 4 stars because I think the name/title for the fragrance is a little misleading, however, it is certainly one I would recommend for a 'background' fragrance - just to keep the room/house smelling nice.
ZESTY & STRONG - 5* You hear ‘Lychee’ you think subtle! THINK AGAIN!! This scent is ZESTY! Some days it’s more citrus! Other days it’s those perfectly in season red berries that pucker your cheeks & make you salivate like your eating lemon sherbets! This gloriously fizzy blend is perfect for Summer. Or, mask the smell of sweaty trainers, wet dogs, baby poo or last nights fishy meal all year long! No need to blend! Enjoy this as it comes! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
STRONG CITRUS - 5* A really powerful, perfectly captured Lemongrass. This is Citrus heaven. Toned down slightly with coconut creaminess this is an ACE scent to mask sweaty trainers, wet dogs or last nights fishy meal!! This is one of my absolute citrus farourites! VERY strong and lasts ages after the warmer is switched off. Start with half a cube if you’re wary! I wouldn’t blend this! Blow away the cobwebs with this zesty scent that packs a punch! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
FRUITY & SUBTLE - this is a perfectly chilled Piña Colada with a topping of whipped Chantilly Cream & even a cherry! It’s fruity, yet subtle enough that you’re not overpowered. Coconut can evoke memories of suntan lotion. This is not like that! Perfectly balanced & lasts long after the warmer is switched off. Blends well!!! Add Pineapple Pucker for more fruit, Lemon Coconut Chiffon for more coconut or Vanilla Bean Buttercream for more sweetness. A perfect choice to remind you of the best Summer you ever had! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!
SHEER PERFECTION - This is the scent of taking a baby out the bath, wrapping it in a big fluffy towel, hearing that baby giggle & coo as you dry, a bit of ‘bum cream’ or talc, fresh nappy, fresh jammies, a cuddle while you give that last calming night feed, then kissing a tender head goodnight as you inhale pure innocence! Yeah - it’s all that in a GORGEOUS wax cube. It’s strong yet subtle. One cube is enough. Half in a small room. It lasts long after your warmer is switched off. If you have a newborn or wish to evoke memories, this is the bar for you! Don’t blend it. Enjoy it as it is. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
FRESH & STRONG - Exactly as described! This is the perfectly captured scent of freshly laundered clothes, straight off the line (or out the tumble dryer!!). It’s STRONG! It’s heavenly. Fresh & clean without being overly flowery. I wouldn’t blend it. One cube is enough & the scent lasts long after the warmer is switched off. In a small room, half a cube would suffice! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
FRESH & SUBTLE - the only way to describe this scent is FRESH! It’s not overpowering, yet you’re very aware it’s there. Perfect if you’ve got friends round & don’t want to flood the room with scent! Great in a small room. One cube is enough & it LASTS! This would blend well, but it’s also perfect on its own. Absolutely lovely if you’re looking for that fresh, clean, natural, ‘unperfumed’ scent! Recommended!
FRUITY & FRESH - so juicy, fruity & fresh! This is absolutely phenomenal! You’re warming the pure scent of a fresh, cool, juicy Ogen melon, with a hint of Honeydew, Watermelon & Cantaloupe added for good measure! It lasts AGES! One cube is enough. I wouldn’t blend as it’s perfect on its own! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
STRONG & SWEET - this is like walking into your favourite sweetie shop! It’s strawberry laces or sweet pink bubble gum! It’s ice cream on a hot day or freshly picked Strawberries served with Chantilly cream! One cube is enough & its scent lasts once the warmer is switched off. Blends well! Lemon Coconut Chiffon added gives it a real boiled sweetie or freshly served fruit sorbet scent. Exactly as described & Highly Recommended!
FRUITY BUT SUBTLE - The scent of a childhood Summer. Ice lollies, fresh berries, and a Mr Whippy cone! Slight citrus zing but it’s subtle. It’s perfect for a small room, kids room or a room you don’t want to overpower. Blends well. Add Lemon Verbena or Blackberry Orange Marmalade for even more citrus, Stawberry Swirl or Coastal Stawberry for more fruit, or Vanilla Bean Buttercream for a deliciously edible sweet scent. Recommended!!!
ZESTY - I LOVE THIS! As the cubes melt, you get a slight berry scent gently wafting around the room, but when it’s fully melted - BANG! CITRUS!!! One cube is enough & the scent still lasts for ages after the warmer is switched off. I wouldn’t suggest this as a blending scent. It’s very powerful all by itself. I don’t like ginger, but fortunately for me, I don’t smell any. Just a zesty, fresh citrus hit! Highly recommended!
STRONG - I’m not exactly sure what it smells like ‘By the Sea’. This is because I live in the North East of Scotland & ‘by the sea’ - The North Sea & a mainline fishing port - at Peterhead its kinda fishy to be honest! This scent is NOT like Peterhead! ??? This is a fresh, clean air, sand between your toes kinda scent. Strong enough that one cube goes a long way. Lasts for quite a while after the warmer is switched off. I wouldn’t blend this personally, but I’d try a blend if anyone has any suggestions. Highly recommended!
I absolutely love the Blue Hyacinth melt that I have been warming today. The fragrance is perfect, and if I close my eyes I am transported to a warm spring day with my flower beds full of gorgeous hyacinths. I have had two blocks melting for the last 12 hours, in a large room, and they are just as good now as first thing this morning.
ZESTY - exactly as described. This is the scent of eating a Lemon Sorbet on holiday, or some lemon sherbet sweeties. It’s that lemon scent that makes your mouth water & pucker. Absolutely gorgeous!!! Blends really well. Add Strawberry Swirl, Coastal Strawberry or Apricot Vanilla for a sweetie shop confection. Or add Kiwi Fruit, Oodles of Orange or White Grapefruit for a blended zesty fragrance! Highly recommended
SUBTLE - there’s no doubt this is pure kiwi fruit but it’s very subtle. Two cubes give it a bit more strength, but it lends itself well to blending as it’s so pure. Add ‘A is for Apple’ or ‘Melon & Apple Granita’ for a gorgeous fruit salad of scents. Subtle but definitely kiwi fruit. Recommended
STRONG - exactly as described. Strong when warmed but not sickly or overpowering. DOESN’T smell like sun-tan lotion, which many coconut scents do. There’s a light fruitiness about this scent. Not one distinctive fruit in particular. A well blended coconut scent that lingers once your warmer is switched off. Highly recommended
STRONG - exactly as described. Sweet and strong. Lingers even after your warmer has been switched off. Gorgeous and sweet (yet not too sickly) on its own, but wonderful to blend with. Tone down a powerful citrus such as Lemon Verbena or a dominant floral such as Clothesline with this heartwarming vanilla scent. Highly Recommended
FRUITY - although this is ‘Plum’ in name it’s not very obvious that it is ‘Plum’ in nature. This is an intensely fruity scent even when warming one cube. A wee boost of citrus gives it zest, yet the added vanilla gives it a creamy warmth. Overall a pleasant, fruity scent that’s pretty strong when warmed. Recommended!
SUBTLE - berries, berries & even more berries. The hint of vanilla keeps this from being tart. Although there’s no doubt this is a berry scent, it is very subtle. I warm two cubes or blend with something a bit more powerful to satisfy my own taste. Recommended.
VERY SUBTLE - I like my citrus scents to be punchy & zesty. This scent is definitely citrus, but NOT strong. If you like a subtle citrus scent wafting throughout the house, this is the scent for you. I’d assume warming two cubes may make this stronger. It would blend brilliantly with ANY of the citrus wax bars. Particularly Lemon Verbena, Oodles of Orange or White Grapefruit for more ‘ooomph’ - or blend with Blue Hyacinth, Garden Honeysuckle or Midnight in Curaçao if you fancy a zesty floral scent. Pleasant, but not my personal taste. Unless blended of course!!!
One of my favourites! It is a sweet but masculine scent. Everybody who comes to my home always asked me what they can smell as they love it. It lasts hours and hours and the scent is lovely and strong without being over powering and giving you a headache. It has a Powdery note and the marshmallow definitely comes though but it is in no way sickly it’s lovely and fresh!
This scent really is beautiful and is my go to when I have people round. It is a combination of a fresh fabric softener scent and a sweet romantic perfume scent. It is definitely one of the smells that lasts the longest and it is strong without being overwhelming and giving you a headache. Definitely worth a try if you do not like anything too floral, fruity or sickly.
Initially, I didn't think I'd like this scent when I received it as a sample from the lovely Becky Joyce however, after warming the sample for several days, can honestly say how much I like it. It's flowery but not over powering. It sends a beautiful warm aroma around the living room and people comment on the lovely smell when they come in! I recommend this to anyone considering purchasing a new fragrance.
Winner winner!! This scent is absolutely gorgeous. It's not something I would have chosen on a first glance. But it smelts luscious. Everyone in my house loves this fragrance. It's strong, sweet and fruity!! I went from a small sample to having purchased several bars of this. Highly recommended x
Delicious and refreshing with a hint of tartness. This is a lovely delicate summery fragrance, not floral as I expected but more fruity. It has a decent strength to it, not overpowering but you can smell it when you enter the room even when the warmer is not on.
This one is stunning if you like floral scents, my partner found it a bit too strong but I found that meant it lasted a long time as it mellows over time! I had a friend say how lovely my flowers smelt when she came in but the flowers had no scent it was my Scentsy! Really pretty, but I'd say defitrnly for a larger space or use 1/2 a cube at a time x
This is a very beautiful and delicate fragrance. Although part of the name suggests 'blossom', I initially thought it could be too 'flowery' for my liking (I tend to avoid flowery scents), but this one is not a heavy floral blossom scent at all. It's very feminine but a very delicate scent. It is not overpowering at all. I particularly loved the fruity notes of this scent. The fragrance lasted 2 days. When I first read the fragrance description, I thought that the tropical island fruit notes would somehow have a strong coconut or banana scent to them....but I personally did not notice these in the fragrance at all.. If it had a strong scent of Banana or Coconut - I could not have continued to warm it for the full 2 days, as I find Banana and Coconut to be overpowering (generally)... All the fragrances work so well together in harmony. I would be tempted to buy this one again.x
Lime is my favourite fragrance of all time...however, a lot of home fragrances using Lime are too strong. I loved warming this fragrance. I would say the Lime fragrance is 'perfect'. It's refreshing and not too strong at all. The wax fragrance lasted 2 days. The Sugar Cane is very delicate (I had thought it'd possibly be overly sweet, but it's not). The Lime is the dominant fragrance, followed closely by the gentle hint of Sugar Cane, and then the very subtle Mint fragrance comes in to perfectly balance the other two fragrances beautifully.. This will be on my next Scentsy order....I loved it.x
I loved the description of this scent but when I smelled it in the bar I wasn't so sure. However on melting the diffent subtle layers of this scent came through, it is perfectly named, calming and fresh. The scent is very stong initially and I found myself switching the warmer on and off to regulate the strength but despite this I would describe the fragrance as delicate in the house, not overbearing and I do love it, so it will deffinately go on my future purchase list.
Light and delicate, perfect bar for your bedroom x
