Guide to Scenting Your Home with Tarts: Part 3 - The Companies

To read more on my series on Scenting Your Home with Tarts, please look for Part 1 - All about Tarts and Part 2 - All about Warmers and Melters. This part will be about companies and big players. You've already seen me mention sellers on Etsy as well as Bath and Body Works and Yankee Candle.


However, to get to know your options, you have to know about Scentsy. Scentsy sells everything related to Scented Candles. They sell most all the types of candles and warmers I mentioned as well as plug ins, solid perfumes and lotions, just to mention a few. Some people think they're overrated, but the general consensus is that they sell good quality products at a bit of a markup. The part I really love about them is that they have such a great community. You can sign up to host parties... It's basically like a tupperware party but more fun since it's with candles. I'm actually not affiliated with them. 


You can also find some pretty large vendors online if you do a quick google or youtube search. I don't have time to cover all of them, but I'd like to dedicate some time to Haley's Heavenly Scents. This is a company that I've order from and really liked. They offer great prices.  So great in fact, that they're more or less the best I've found on the internet. (Fifteen dollars for free shipping also helped.) In addition, they offer a lot of choices as far as types of candles and scents. 


Cue awful flash pictures!



This is just to give you an idea of how large they are and what they look like. I purchased the following scents. 


CAKE BAKE: The aroma of almond cake with a base note of melted butter. 
I thought that this was great. It gave my home that just finished baking scent  love. 


FRUIT SLICES: a fruit salad blend with grapefruits, oranges, lemons, strawberries and ripe raspberries 
This is my least favorite tart. It just doesn't smell like it has all of these scents and was not as strong as I liked. 


STRAWBERRY LEMONADE: a blend of strawberry and lemon chiffon 
This was quite strong and quite tart. I think it's perfect for summer but others may dislike it. It lingers in the air beautifully. 


WHITE TEA & GINGER: BATH AND BODY WORKS. hypnotic blend of citrus,rich florals and underlying musk and wood. This is a very clean scent, one of my favorites!
Obviously a dupe scent. I've never noticed this scent in Bath and Body Works before but putting this candle on makes me feel so zen inside. I love it. 


Overall, I really love this company. The only thing that I was expecting was a faster shipping time (since candles melt in Arizona) but 2.5 weeks isn't very long to wait for something that's freshly made.
