Please keep in mind that everyone’s sense of smell is different. What is strong to me, may not be strong to someone else. How long your wax lasts is going to depend on your sense of smell, the size of the room, and how strong you like your scent.
That being said, let’s break down some prices!!!
2.4 oz Bar of wax: Comes divided into 6 cubes, each cube lasts 10-15 hrs and the whole bar will last 60-80 hrs.
1 lb Brick of wax: Total “smell” time of a brick is 360 – 400 hrs.
Bar: $5 each
Brick: $20 each
Bars breakdown to .08 an hour or less (based on 60 hrs)
Bricks breakdown to .055 an hour or less (based on 360 hrs)
Now, to give everyone an idea of prices. I recently priced a 60-80 hr Yankee candle at Target. The price tag was $18.99. $18.99/60 hrs = .32 an hour. It would take 6 of these candles to get 360 hrs. $18.99 x 6 = $113.94 for Yankee or $20 for Scentsy’s brick.
As you can see, even with a full size warmer for $30 and the $20 Brick, Scentsy is still far cheaper. Plus, with Scentsy, you can leave it melting 24/7. You certainly wouldn’t want to leave a candle burning 24/7. The glass would get too hot and break, causing hot wax and flame to be uncontained.
