Finding my Fall Fragrance–A Scentsy Giveaway!

When I create a party or an event, what I am really trying to do is create a feeling–an atmosphere. Being a very visual person, the way a party looks is important to me, but a great event will speak to all of your senses. The same goes for my home. Ideally, I want to walk in and have it look, feel, sound, taste (if only dinner were always waiting), and smell like home! That is why I was so excited to get a Scentsy warmer and have the opportunity to create my own signature autumn fragrance.

The warmer I chose is the Castille, and I love it because it looks great anywhere and glows beautifully. The other cool thing, is that there are several different screen options I can purchase for the warmer to change the look without buying a new warmer.

I figured after the Scentsy class I took at SNAP conference in April, I would be a pro at the mixing challenge.

The Scentsy  ScenTrend of 2012 is Pink Pepper. It is an unique scent and truly has a light pepper fragrance. The reason it has become so popular is that it is a perfect scent to mix with other scents. It adds a little spice and depth to some of the lighter, more summery fragrances, helping them transition perfectly to Fall.

I played around with a couple of combos, before deciding, that I really wanted my scent to feel like Fall (the weather in Arizona doesn’t, so I have to create that atmosphere somehow!). I pulled out a decidedly cinnamon scent called “Welcome Home” and decided to mix a couple of scents with it.

Pixie is a pleasant, but mild scent, so I added a cube of that and a cube of Pink Pepper. And mixed them all together.

It was a nice combo, but the cinnamon was still the over-powering fragrance. After a while, I decided that I would love to add a citrus scent to the mix to make it smell like all of the holiday baking that happens in the fall. But I didn’t have any citrusy scents.

I did have this fruity Paradise Punch–which on its own smells just like Summer. I’m not sure which fruits, but is smells exactly like tropical fruits. I added a cube to give the fruity undertone. Paradise Punch, like Welcome Home, is a pretty bold scent, so you might consider adding just a half a cube if you want the fruit fragrance to be subtle. I added another Pink Pepper to help it all blend together and keep it trending in the Autumn direction, instead of summer fun. I thought about adding more Pixie, since the other stronger scents seemed to be overpowering it, but my warmer was pretty full already. Next time, I might start with smaller amounts of Welcome Home and Paradise Punch.

So here is my recipe, if you’d like to create my Fabulous Fall Fragrance:

2 cubes (or more) Pink Pepper

1 cube (or more) Pixie

1 cube Welcome Home

1 cube Paradise Punch

Melt in warmer and mix together with stirrer. Enjoy!

I can’t wait to try out a few more combos, and see what other atmospheres I can create through scent!
