Bookish Aromas

A Post Devoted to Scentsy

As some of you may know, I am not just a book fiend, I am a Scentsy Consultant as well.  Something I love doing as I prep to read is clean the house, make my coffee, and, yes, put the appropriate scent in my Scentsy warmer.  Through some of my posts and reviews you’ll see mention of a perfect Scent pairing for particular books, smells to help set the mood.  For the record, I’d like to share some of my all time favorite mood setters here:

Weathered Leather

Always enhances the library mood, reminding your nose of all the leather bound books and leather covered winged back chairs your library should have, even if it doesn’t now.  The scent also has a backdrop of Oak, adding to every book lovers nose for the perfect library.  Its especially wonderful while reading a historical piece, or a good old fashioned classic, something that you’d easily find in a leather bound anyway.  You can find it under the Scentsy Man collection, but I would definitely not limit this to men.

Duke

Also found in the Scentsy Man collection, I didn’t like this scent much until it hit the warmer.  Cardamom, mahogany, and amber, it makes for the best of library scents, musky and sexy, and all that reminds me of books.  I got this scent for my husband’s man cave, but this week I am convinced that I must steal it because I’ve been doing all my reading in here since we started warming it.  Went perfectly while reading Cosette of Les Miserables.

Spring and Summer Collection available at https://akklemm.scentsy.us/Scentsy/Buy/Collection/371

Just Breathe

Wonderfully fresh with euclyptus and lemony goodness, its great for summer and those breezy summer novels.  Kick back, lay back, enjoy the spa vacation life and a good book.  This is the kind of scent that early Saturday mornings, when my face is freshly washed, I can open the windows let the summer breeze in and let the scent intermingle with the freshly cut grass.

Pixie

A little bit Spring and Summer, a little bit wood nymph.  Its got both mandarin and teakwood as part of its unique blend, and allows me to dive into the greatest of fairy tales.  Its become a personal favorite that I don’t just warm in the library, but all over the house.  It also makes a fantastic bedroom scent.

Honey Pear Cider and Comfort & Joy

These are both out of season Fall/Winter or Holiday scents.  I love them each, and would love if they would bring these back year round.  Honey Pear Cider would make a fabulous Cafe scent and always go wonderfully when I have Hazlenut Latte and Sticky Cinnamon Bun warming in other rooms of the house.  Comfort & Joy is described as spicy, familiar woods marry with surprising white florals, pure citrus, and just a nibble of gingerbread and I absolutely love it.  This is also a scent that smells incredibly clean and I stocked up at the end of the Fall/Winter season so that I would have it through the summer.
