What is Scentsy fragrance?
Scentsy fragrances are designed for every special and ordinary moment,
because we understand that the true power of scent is its ability to bring
people together. We want our fragrances to Warm the Heart, Enliven the
Senses and Inspire the Soul!
We use only the best ingredients, responsibly sourced and expertly processed,
to create our signature fragrances — and Scentsy fans the world over are
OBSESSED. Here’s why:
Our fragrances are complex.
Each Scentsy fragrance is composed of 30 to 60 unique ingredients to create
beautifully layered scents that unfold over time.
Our fragrances are personal.
Our fragrance design team thoughtfully and lovingly creates new fragrances
to help people connect with their emotions, their memories and each other.
We analyze industry trends and our own sales data to ensure we’re offering
what customers want most from season to season. We also offer an incredible
variety to make sure everyone can find something to love.
Our fragrances are long-lasting.
Our Scentsy Bars are made with a custom, high-quality paraffin wax blend
designed to give you long-lasting fragrance because of its ability to hold the
most fragrance oil. It also has a low melting point, which means it doesn’t
take much heat to release its fragrance, and it remains firm when not
exposed to heat.
Our fragrances are safe.
We use a combination of natural and synthetic ingredients, because not every
scent can be created naturally or sustainably. (Have you ever tried to harvest
fresh air?) But we only use SAFE ingredients, so only good things come from
experiencing our fragrances — like love, joy and connection.
Composition of fragrance oils
Fragrances can be made up of natural or synthetic
ingredients. Most contain both.
Ingredients used can be:
• Essential oil: The “essence” of plants obtained by
distilling plant material. Plant materials include
flowers, grass, stems, seeds, leaves, roots, bark,
fruits, tree moss and tree resin.
• Natural: Materials obtained directly from plants.
• Synthetic: Manufactured materials. In most
cases, the molecular structure of synthetic
materials used in perfumery is identical to natural
A perfumer’s palette has as many as 5,000 different
ingredients from which to create fragrance formulas.
Why not all natural?
Because not every fragrance can or should be
simulated with natural ingredients! Synthetic
ingredients ensure the character of the fragrance
remains consistent over time, and they help
eliminate sustainability and environmental concerns.
Two examples: Musk originally came from musk deer,
which are endangered. And the quality of crops like
rose, lavender or citrus can vary based on factors like
precipitation and temperature.
Ingredients vs. impression
A fragrance that smells nutty might contain zero
nuts — it’s the combination of ingredients that create
that smell. Descriptions call out the fragrance’s
impression, not necessarily its ingredients. It’s all
about what you smell.
Why do some fragrances last longer than others?
There are many factors to consider, like a scent’s ingredients, your preferred
fragrance intensity and the environment where you warm your favorite bar.
Everything from room size to the humidity and temperature of the area, even
the type of flooring, plays a role in fragrance strength and longevity. But rest
assured that each and every fragrance is expert-tested to ensure premium
quality and the longest possible experience, from citrus to spice.
