Periodically, I enjoy going to Bath & Body Works..to check out the latest scents & mini-splurge on myself. Most PWD would rather smell sweet then BE sweet. (I'm speaking for the women here, I don't know about the guys). Most times I don't have a game plan, except for the mandatory $10/$30 coupon I tote along, because I know I will spend $30 worth of stuff, it's that easy.
This time though, I knew exactly what I wanted.(a flyer had come in the mail,making me long for Nov.2 with a passion)
Meet the Scentbug, a new and novel scent diffuser. I'm very much the candle lover person, but tend to forget that they're burning & my husband is afraid that one of these days, I'll burn down the house.(and that's a very valid fear) The great thing about the Scentbug is-there's no flame involved, so it's great for people like me.
It comes in five lovely colors(brown,green, pink, black, white)and is also available online..but I choose to go to the store,no shipping costs and you can use coupons.
The Scentbug is battery operated, and fan driven.(and comes with 2 AA batteries, which are depleted in about 4 days-according to the cashier. Hey, that's almost as useless as my pump! but at least you can use rechargeable batteries for it)You pull out the drawer, douse the pad with a hearty 15-20 drops of fragrance oil, and close it.(if you run it all the time, expect to put in more fragrance oils every day) Pads can be reused, up to a point.(eventually they'll fall apart)
In the bottom, the battery compartment pops out and you can store your extra scent pads in there as well.
Then you push the side button, and it turns on. The whole thing glows in the dark, so it's a pretty cool thing at night(when you really shouldn't have a candle burning that long) And you can take/use it anywhere.
The cost of the Scent bug is $12.50 for the unit, which comes w/5 scent pads/2 batteries to get you started. Scentpad refills are 8/$3.50. You can put any fragrance oil in there..Bath and Body Works is currently running a sale on theirs,$4 each.(and they each should last about a month) And, of course, the cost of batteries, if you don't use rechargeables. I give it a 4/5, given the cost factor. I do use coupons, but compared to a candle(you just buy and LIGHT the thing) this thing is expensive. Otherwise, I think I am going to totally love it.
