Scentsy has started a debate that at times can get quite heated. Is the Scentsy system really better than the traditional candle. We are going to compare Scentsy and the popular candle company, Yankee Candle. We will see which is more cost effective and which is just all around better.
Let’s start with Yankee Candle. The average candle costs around fifteen dollars. Once you take the candle home and light it, the fragrance will last for about four days depending on if you light it every day or not. There is also the fire hazard. If a kid or perhaps a busy husband knock the candle over your whole house could go up in flames. You also can’t reuse the candle once the wick is gone. Its just over and one with and it’s time to get a new candle. The average person will have to buy 120 candles a year. If you add up the total cost of all those candle is in the ballpark of 1,800 dollars. That is a lot of money.
The average Scentsy warmer is thirty-five dollars. You then have to add the five dollars that the bars cost. That is a grand total of forty dollars. So far the Yankee Candle is the cheaper option. However you don’t have to worry about your house catching on fire with the Scentsy warmers. There is no open flame to worry about containing. If you get tired of a scent before you can’t smell it anymore you can just throw in a new bar. The average Scentsy customer buys about ninety bars a year. If you add that cost up it is 485 dollars. There is also the added benefit of being able to leave your warmer on for extended periods of time.
The facts are pretty straight forward. Scentsy is clearly the best choice when it comes to home fragrance. It is cheaper, safer and more effective.
