As promised, my long awaited review on Scentsicles! I have to say this has got to be so far one my favorite things I’ve gotten to review. As an owner of an artificial tree this is a definite must have every year. Enviroscent, Inc created Scentsicles in 2005 to help the 55 million homes in the US who have artificial trees for Christmas. Over 40% of people complain they lack the real tree scent while 71% of consumers desire a real authentic smell of a fresh cut tree.
The Scentsicle line offers a few different items to allow you to carry the smell of Christmas with you where ever you go. Their most popular item is the ScentSicles themselves. They come in a variety of scents such as White Winter Fir, Christmas Time Spruce, It’s a Wonderful Pine, SnowBerry Wreath and Two Dashes of Cinnamon. The ScentSicles act as ornaments in your tree. The tube comes with 6 sticks as well as 6 provided S hooks for hanging them. They actually have two options for hanging them in the tree. One is more fancy then the other, but if you’re solely using them to scent your tree the S hooks work just fine. They are sold for an average of 7.99 for the plain ScentScicles, and 9.99 for the Decorative Ornaments in the 22,000 stores they are carried in seasonally. Which include, Wal-Mart, Michaels, The Home Depot, Target, Lowes and Bed Bath and Beyond. I would probably pay up to the 10.00 mark for these products as I really enjoy them, and would probably buy more then I needed to have the smell year round.
First and foremost the smell of these things are amazing! I have a hard time with certain scents as they give me a headache if they are overly strong. I was pleased to know these were not overly strong, but had enough scent in them to spread throughout the house. They are a true authentic Christmas Tree smell too, you know how you get something that’s supposed to smell like the real thing, but just doesn’t.
Some of the other items in the ScentSicles line are Auto Sticks which are made to hang from your car mirror with an elastic band provided. If you don’t like it hanging from your mirror for whatever reason they also provide you with a mesh bag to place the sticks in and put it under your car seat. I have the White Winter Fir in my car hanging, and its wonderful. I love how small the stick is, as opposed to the large tree fresheners that could possibly block your view. The scent has lasted a lot longer then most of my car fresheners, which says a lot. These run about 4.99 for a 3 pack, each stick should last you up to 10 days each. That’s an entire months supply for only 4.99, that’s an incredible deal. The last item is the Scented Sprigs, these are shorter scent sticks for easy use in holiday wreaths, or center pieces you may have in your home. These also retail at 7.99, but come in a package of 10. I love the idea of having all of your holiday decorations scented with such wonderful aroma.
