Has anyone heard of Scentsy?

Its a company that sells candles - like partylite but instead of lighting a wick, they use bulbs, and the units plug into the wall. The wickless wax melts with the bulbs instead of flame.

Any thoughts on this product before I go out and spend some money unnecessarily?

...im going to expose my cheapness here, but im poor!!...lol

-i stick a dryer sheet over my water heater or on the back of fans
-sometimes I spray it with my fav air freshener or parfume and let the fan oscillate over the room
-put a drop of scented oil on a lightbulb...make sure the bulb is COLD!!
-dollar store is great for candles, tho they burn out fast!

i was thinking about the plug ins too - im probably like the rest of you - i have no more plug-ins to spare - they are all used up with tank equipment, and cell phones and curling irons lol...although its probably "safer"...i dont have any more plugs lol..

okay, thx for your input. :)

I trip over cords and pull whatever they are attached to all over the place, but i have yet to leave a candle burning alone or knock it over.
that being said, i just imagined tripping/pulling
a cord and having hot melted wax fly all over!!! Ouch!! and usually the dye from those things stain pretty bad too.
My vote is totally for candles, OR

My favorite, vanilla jasmine dryer sheets on the fan, water heater, etc

Plug In's have caused many fires in North America. Once i saw that report I stopped. Those airwick misters may also be a viable option.

i use nature clean. Air freshener it's 99.9 % natural and it's non toxic and biodegradable. It's a little more than the rest but my health is more important..

I am with bonsai dave on this one, some of those plug in things are very toxic for you. I prefer beeswax candles they are very pricey but worth it. Or like Nicklfire mentioned the oil. Natural oils are a bit more costly but they will last you forever. And if you get the right kind non-toxic. Or if you do not want to burn them you could put a few drops on a piece of terracotta and stash it away.

the oil filled jars with the sticks in them work nice as well, and looks like the dryer sheets are a big hit to the members here ,,,LOL,, wonder if they would stay if I used them instead of underarm deorderant? Reusable and keeps you dry. And if your roomies gets your goat you could still reuse it in their load of wash :D....thats if ya had roomies that got your goat :D
