I just bought some Yankee Candles in Harvest and Pumpkin Spice. I love the scents, but am a bit dissappointed in their strength. I love the ones from Walmart…they are cheap and it doesn’t bother me so much if they don’t burn perfectly event.

I’ve been on a kick with an online retailer of Soy candles… http://www.serfozos.com. They burn really evenly and have a very strong scent, even the tealights. I’ve never had a candle burn away completely until now. I’m impressed. The price is a little greater than most, but they don’t give off the toxic black smoke.

Our favorite scents are definitely Pumpkin Spice and Fall Harvest. I also like creme brulee.

Wow! Just came back on for sec, sorry! lol…. Here’s what I have from Scentsy

I have a mid or full size warmer as well (can’t remember which size) and a plug in. I keep the plug-in in my home office and when we have company move it to the bathroom. (basically I need more,lol).

Mochadoodle was my fave last winter!

Citrus Sun tea: Eh – OK, not amazing

Vanilla Cream – Currently in both warmers. Love the smell for my office. I’m a huge vanilla fan though in candles.

Baked Apple Pie – Mmm can’t wait for fall for this one. Really smells apply pie fallish

Cranberry Mango – Will be nice for the office around Christmas. There’s just a small hint of mango, it’s mainly the cranberry

Havana Cabana – Not a fan

Sunkissed Citrus: Good…. not bad… but good for summer

Cinnamon Vanilla – I CANNOT WAIT TO USE IT!

Other than Mochadoodle I also had Pumpkin Roll. These were my staples until I got the above scents. 

The great thing, is they have specials which break the cost of scents down even lower. The warmers aren’t “cheap” but when you think about how long each scent lasts (my Mochadoodle is still great after a year of solid use) I mean… GREAT investment.

I need more warmers!

Another question for the Scentsy fans – I was checking out the site.  Do these plug into an outlet?  What exactly is the heat source to melt the wax?

There is a light bulb underneath to warm the wax. It’s great because you never have to worry about leaving it on, it’s no more dangerous then having a lamp on. I like to turn it on before going out if I know people might be coming over after so then my place smells great right when we arrive.

I have the small plug in that goes directly into the wall (one for the bathroom and one for the office) and I also have a couple with longer coards that I put in the living room, they are different styles and one’s more fallish. I love all of them. They keep coming out with great new holders too. Id love to have one for every season/holiday!

I forgot to mention…my VERY favorite scentsy scent is Mulberry bush! It’s not a fall scent but it’s awesome!

You should consider maybe having a party, it’s great because they bring all of the scents and you can smell all of them in person before buying. I had one last year and was surprised that some of the scents that sounded great in description were really bad actually in person. Some sounded bad on paper and smelled good in person so it’s hard to know.
