Scentsy Wickless Candles {Valentine Warmer Review & Warmer and Scent Bar of Choice Giveaway}

Scentsy logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Valerie!}

When it comes to the decor in our house, there weren't a whole lot of changes made once we had children. My husband wasn't a fan of knick-knacks before, so there weren't all that many that needed to be put away out of reach of little hands. So other than transitioning the sitting room into a play room, we were basically set.

But one aspect that I miss? The cute looks and the soothing scents that can come from a great candle. Instead of the smell of leftover pizza or dirty socks (are my kids the only ones who take them off and leave them everywhere in the house?) I would much rather take a deep breath and be met with something pleasing.

Whether something vibrant and fruity or breezy and calming, a great aroma has the ability to give your home a completely different feeling. The downside to candles, however, are the dangers that come along with flames, heat, smoke and the idea of even mixing those with children.

The perfect solution? The look, smell and safety of Scentsy and their fabulous line of wickless candles, ceramic Warmers and delicious fragrance products.

Scentsy reviewProviding everything that you love about candles but without the features you'd like to avoid, Scentsy’s wickless candles make a home smell great, accent a room's décor and provide a safe alternative to candles. The fragrant wax is heated in an elegant Warmer using a low-watt light bulb, so there is no flame, smoke or soot. The long-lasting wax slowly Scentsy warmermelts, infusing a room with fragrance.

With more than 100 ceramic Warmer designs, there is sure to be at least one that works for the size of your room as well as your personality. The options include modern, traditional, nursery-inspired, seasonal and the college-themed Campus Collection... or you can even create your own Warmer design with DIY Scentsy Warmers and rub-on transfers.

As if making the decision on the style and color of the Warmer wasn't difficult enough, there are then 80 different fragrances to go along with them. Containing 3x as much fragrance oil as Scentsy barregular wicked candles, Scentsy wickless candle Bars include scents that are reminiscent of the spa, a corner café, romance, baked goods and much more.

Although Scentsy products are great as a year-round accessory for your own home or as a gift, they're especially perfect for Valentine's Day. Did you know that, according to the National Fire Protection Association, candles are responsible for more than 15,000 fires in the United States each year, and cause more than 1,200 injuries and $450 million in property damage?

Not exactly the way that you want to end your Valentine's Day holiday, now is it? Instead, the Valentine Warmer from Scentsy provides the fragrance, romance and style without the added risk of open flames.

Scentsy Valentine WarmerA delicate white design with fluted edges and darling details, this Valentine Warmer is tied up with a pretty polka dot ribbon and accented by a cherry-red heart pendant made of glass. Having never experienced Scentsy firsthand (but I've always heard great things!) I couldn't wait to try this sweet Warmer out in preparation for Valentine's Day.

Scentsy reviewI wasn't sure what to expect in terms of assembly or preparation, so I was pleased to find that it was nearly non-existent with this Warmer.

Scentsy Valentine Warmer reviewAfter screwing in the provided light bulb and placing the dish on top, all that was left to do was plug the Warmer in and choose which enticing Scentsy Bar to try first.

Scentsy Valentine Warmer reviewI appreciate that Scentsy Bars allow you to customize the amount of scent that is given off simply by how many sections of the Bar you choose to melt. The Bars are easily broken apart, so for a smell that is not as strong, just add one piece. For a more robust smell, add more.

Scentsy Valentine Warmer reviewWithin 15 or so minutes, the Scentsy Bar melts completely in the ceramic dish and the melted wax is left dispersing the fragrance into the air.

Scentsy Valentine Warmer reviewLove it! Just from having used this stylish Warmer recently, I can definitely see why Scentsy has so many fans. There is no worry about leaving candles unattended or keeping them away from fabrics or liquids that are flammable, instead this warmer can be left on to safely continue making my house smell delicious!

Switching between the scents is easy, as the melted wax can be poured Scentsy Valentine Warmer reviewright back into the plastic container that it came in so that a new Bar can be placed on the dish. But so far all three of the scents that we have tried (Love Story, French Kiss and Vanilla Creme) have been met with extremely positive responses, including from the most difficult to please around here, my husband.

I know that when he walks in the door after work and the first thing he says is, "It smells good in here!" that we've found a winner. Plus, with the great glow that this Valentine Warmer gives off, I can definitely see keeping it on throughout the house and making it a part of the romantic decor for Valentine's Day.

Scentsy Valentine Warmer review
I love that Scentsy included a cutout behind the heart pendant so that the light behind it really makes it glow!
