I was super happy when our friends at Scentchips sent me a ScentLamp and some ScentOil to review. I have a fragrance lamp already and it’s the only one I’ve ever used so I was very intrigued and eager to try one by another brand.
I was sent a lovely taupe coloured ScentLamp (it looks sort of like a purple grey colour to me, which I love and matches our decor perfectly!) and Sunny Smoothie Nectarine ScentOil to try out.
The whole lamp system is very simple to set up and use…
First, you need to remove decorative cap, the snuffer cap and the stone/wick and then you fill the lamp up about 2/3 of the way with the ScentOil using the funnel supplied.
Next you put the stone/wick back inside and let the wick soak for at least 20 minutes. After that you light the stone and wait for about 3 minutes. Blow it out then and cover the stone with the decorative lid.
You can leave the scent flowing through your home for as little or as long as you want, or well until the fragrance is gone. I found that 10-15 minutes was more than enough time for the fragrance to disperse through our entire home, it was amazing. If you want to stop the fragrance you just place the snuffer cap back on. Simple as that.
The fragrance lingers for quite a while even after you’ve put the cap back on.
I just adored the Nectarine ScentOil it smelled like a creamy summer smoothie made with lots of juicy, ripe, sweet nectarines with subtle hints of jasmine and ylang ylang. It’s an ideal scent for odour neutralizing and the strong aroma scent was always consistent but not overpowering.
Scentchips have a large collection of fragrance lamps in different sizes, shapes and colours to choose from so you are sure to find one that suits your taste. And to go with it, there is also an equally large selection of over 30 fragrance oils.
The lamps are very pretty and quite unique and you will not be disappointed at the quality of them and they will make wonderful and unique gifts as well.
