Scentsy’s candles are not just any ordinary candles, these wickless candles were specially formulated to release more fragrance to the air and make the room smell amazingly without the dangers of burning something or setting the whole room on fire. Without the wick, there was no soot or smoke, and because it was warmed not scorched by a flame, the candle bricks or bars were able to be formulated that it can contain more fragrance oils. This made the Scentsy candles the safest fragrance candles available anywhere. Plus, with the trendy and appealing candle warmer designs they were offering, they looked great as an addition to any room. Presently, Scentsy offers a wide variety of wickless candle bars and bricks in different fragrances, as well as various sized and designed candle warmers.
