After some candle mishaps last year I decided to do away with lighting them altogether when we redecorated our living room but for an addict like me it was never going to be that simple. I dabbled with alternative home fragrances but nothing has quite filled that void.. enter Scenterpiece. I bought an electric warmer pretty early on to use with wax tarts/oils and that was okay but I like to switch up my scents regularly and although you can do it it’s not as easy with a wax burner as it is with a candle. The new Yankee Scenterpiece has solved that issue by creating self contained wax tarts that you can pop in and out of the warmer as you wish.. genius!
Unfortunately I’ve struggled to find a good variety of these melt pots compared to candles.. but I have a solution for that too! I managed to pry the wax from one of my not so favourite pots and replaced it with chunks from one of my absolute favourite candles (Waikiki Melon) and it works in exactly the same way. I’m wondering whether some entrepreneurial eBay company out there has already started selling empty pots but if not.. someone needs to do that, stat! Even those of you still burning away would benefit from being able to use the very dregs of your favourite candles as wax tarts and storing them in their own pop in/pop out pot would be ideal!
So far I’m loving the Scenterpiece, I’ve just ordered one for my Mum along with an array of new scents so I’m interested to hear what she thinks about it but I am totally convereted! If you’re trying to break yourself of your candle habit (my reasons were mostly soot on the walls related) this still gives you that same hit of fragrance and is just as easy to swap out.. it’s really just the glow I miss now. Perhaps I’ll buy some fairy lights..
