Scentsy Solid Perfume

I do love my Scentsy for the home but recently they came out with Solid Perfumes.  They come in a handful of scents at this time.  A friend who is a Scentsy Consultant sent me one of these to try out and review in my blog.  I had my choice of the scents and asked to try My Wish.  My Wish is a mix of earthy fig, sweet violet and marshmallow.  I find that it smells different than the home fragrance of the same name.  A bit warmer and sweeter but that could also be how it turns out mixed with my skin and body chemistry.  It applies really smooth and creamy but doesn't leave any residue on your skin or clothes.

Unlike their home scents, the solid perfumes are designed to be worn on your skin and are cosmetic grade.  Not only that, but they are lacking a lot of the nasty chemicals usually found in perfumes.  They are not 100% natural but are a great low-chemical alternative.  I have been able to wear this with no problems and I tend to have a lot of issues with perfumes and fragrances. My boyfriend hasn't complained either which is always a good sign.

You can only get these from Scentsy. They retail for $18 each.  I am hosting an ONLINE Happy New Year Scentsy Party.  You can order online from the comfort of your own home and it will all be shipped to your door.  I find that their shipping is quite fast and they pack everything really well.  My party is running from January 1, 2012 - Jan 15, 2012.  On January 1, Scentsy has their fabulous Bring Back my Bar scents available so that is when my party starts.  You can access my party and place an order here:  Heather's Scentsy Party Link

  1. I highly doubt they are phthalate-free since they use synthetic fragrance. Also, they use candelilla wax which uses some pretty nasty chemicals to extract it. Also, their very first ingredient, which means the ingredient there is most of is a known neurotoxin! It's also linked to birth & developmental effects, so not something a pregnant woman or nursing woman should be using. It would be nice to see all the ingredients since the picture doesn't show them all and they are not listed on the Scentsy website.

    As noted in the blog post, I acknowledge that this perfume is NOT natural and merely contains less chemicals than majority of perfumes out there on the market. All Scentsy scents, both for home or body are pthalate free.
