I ordered two Diffusers-- 'Aspire' and 'Evolve'. Aspire I bought for my own personal use in my home. Evolve I bought to use as a demo-product at my parties. Since Scentsy's Diffusers are rather fragile & made of glass/ceramic, I wasn't crazy about the idea of having to clean & pack up my own diffuser every time I had a party. Plus, I just plain couldn't choose between the two so naturally I bought both. #thatshowIroll
I've now had my Aspire Diffuser unboxed for 24 hours and I wanted to share my first impressions::
How it looks:
It's gorgeous. Really, it is. The shade is made of a beautiful white, brushed ceramic that illuminates just beautifully when lit. Even when it's not turned on, it's still such a beautiful focal point in my home. I can't wait to have people over and have them ask me about it!
Easy as can be. I think the most confusing part was figuring out where the cord was as I was unboxing it (hint:: it's wrapped up and hidden inside your water reservoir)
How it smells:
My home is rather small, and our main living space is one large 'open concept' room consisting of the kitchen & living space. Compared to a typical Scentsy warmer & wax, I find that the Diffuser doesn't throw fragrance quite as far, and it doesn't seem quite as strong. Scentsy recommends starting with 4-5 droplets of oil. Because I am a badass who refuses to listen to instructions, I started with 6. That extra one droplet didn't seem like quiiiiiiet enough. I could easily go stronger. Fortunately! One of the best things about Scentsy Diffusers is that you can easily customize the strength of your fragrance by just adding more oil.
Because I am a Scentsy Consultant, I was able to order a Oil Tester Kit, which gives me samples of Scentsy's 21 natural oils. I was really surprised at which ones I ended up enjoying the most, and which ones I wasn't crazy about! I will do another blog post soon exclusively about the scents (my faves, my least faves, etc).
Which is better-- Scentsy's flagship wax Warmers, or the new Diffuser?
Ooof. I can't pick!! I love love LOVE the Diffuser, but it absolutely won't replace my warmers. Both are such different fragrance systems and both have their advantages.
I feel like the Diffuser is perhaps a bit more... luxurious. It feels a bit indulgent and fancy. It's the fragrance system that you put on when you're having a bath, or when you have nice company over, or when you're enjoying a romantic dinner with your parter. The oils are all natural, crisp, and very 'spa' like. At $156 cdn each, I certainly can't afford to have a Diffuser in every room of my home, so I have to be more selective about which rooms get treated to one.
The warmers, on the other hand, are more approachable and casual. Also, because of their lower price range they are also more consumable. Because of this, they will remain my 'all the time' fragrance system.
Earlier today I had my Parlour Warmer on, warming 'Blueberry Rush'. I warmed that for a couple of hours, while I mowed the lawn, & did some cleaning. Now, while I sit here writing this, I have my Diffuser on. Two totally different Fragrence systems-- both are awesome!
I am really really really looking forward to playing with this beauty a bit more in the weeks to come! I also can't wait for my first Home Party that I am able to bring my secondary 'Evolve' warmer out to! I know that for many people the $156 cdn ($130 USD) price tag on these things can be pretty frightening... but once they see & smell these beauties in action, justifying the price is an absolute no-brainer. Scentsy's Diffusers are GORGEOUS and I am so pleased with mine!
