The Scenter Haul: Incense cones & Simmering Granules


 I love my candles and scents for the house. When I was tidying up my candle box I came across my little incense cone holder so went on a hunt for more cones for it. A quick eBay search threw up the company 'The Scenter' and from there this mini haul was born.

I got my paws on a few different scents to try, and with it being on a buy 3 get one free deal I knew I just has to get my moneys worth. So I picked up 8 different scents in 2 different formats: Incense cones and Simmering Granules.

The package came with the boxes flat and cones in there own bag. I was actually surprised when I saw this as I thought they would be in there boxes, but can completely understand why they were not as the boxes would have been crushed. Its nice however that they did give you the box with them, they can easily be wrapped as a nice gift to fragrance lovers then. My favourite thing about the cones are how they come with a little metal disk for burning them on. Saves on having to buy your own stand for them so they don't mark any wood or leave there ash everywhere. 

The incense cones are really fragrant and really do fill up the home with there wisps of perfumed smoke. Cones and sticks in general are not to everybody's taste and I always feel they are looked down on compared to the usual candle or room spray. However I find actually watching them burn is quite therapeutic as the smoke dances about. The smell lingers in the home unlike candles which I find vanishes quickly.

One thing im disappointed about is the Simmering Granules. Perhaps its my burner but there is just no fragrance from them when they burn. They smell heavenly when sniffed in there little bag but outside that there is nothing – quite disappointed as the black cherry smelt so good! All scents seem to be this way. I don't think I will be re-buying these kind.

All in all I'm actually away to make another purchase from them to try out the other smells.


Much Love,

  7. Have you heard of Scentsy? I love cones and burners but with having 3 cats and a dog I worry about having open flames, but a Scentsy is an electronic burner, so you have the little wax pots in the top, but no fire. Mine is a skull! The scents last really well :) My Mum got me mine last year for Christmas and I use it basically everyday

    1. Cones and incense don't actually have an open flame. Once they are lit you can pretty much forget about them as it's just smoke and last for a max of 20mins with the scent lasting days. I prefer that to melting wax as I don't trust my toddler and 2 cats enough to during the day - flame or electronic can still leave a horrible mess x
