Earlier this week a customer asked us if we had any Scentsy Bricks left for sale or if we could still buy Scentsy Bricks online. The simple answer is no. Scentsy Bricks were discontinued February 2012.
Our personal inventory at HelloScent.com does not include any Scentsy bricks and, we caution anyone when purchasing Scentsy bricks in person from this point forward for the mere fact they had to have been purchased in February 2012. They will still be okay for awhile as Scentsy Corporate suggests a 6-12 month shelf life for Scentsy Scent bars, depending on the scent and other factors.
We know that many Independent Scentsy Consultants and raving Scentsy fans stocked up on Scentsy Bricks when Scentsy Corporate announced that all Scentsy Bricks were to be discontinued. It’s easy to get addicted to the wonderful smells of Scentsy and once you find your favorite Scentsy fragrance, it is a common practice and desire to stock up.
Just remember the shelf life. As time passes, those Scentsy Bricks continue to age and will not be made of the freshest wax or contain the strongest scent.
Are you wondering why Scentsy Bricks were discontinued? For starters, they were poured by hand. You must consider efficiency in business to keep costs down, right? You can imagine how much quicker a machine can pour multiple Scentsy Scent Bars in a fraction of the time. Remember, the more time and money spent in developing or creating products, the more the final product will cost, too.
I’m sure as a consumer, like me, you want the best product for the least amount of money, right? With the discontinued Scentsy Bricks no longer available, you can take advantage still of great Combine & Save Scentsy Specials such as the $25 Scentsy Scent Bar 6-Pack. (Buy 5 Scentsy Bars, Get 1 Free for a savings of $5).
Plus, when you host a qualifying show of $150 or more (or place an online order at HelloScent.com of $150 or more) you will receive host benefits such as a half-priced item. Theoretically, you could choose the 6-Pack of Scentsy Bars (retail $25) for your half-price item and pay only $12.50 plus tax. Now that’s a better deal than the old Scentsy Brick!
When NOT to Buy Scentsy from Your Neighbor
Whether it is a friend, neighbor or the local Independent Scentsy Consultant in your community, the time NOT to buy Scentsy from them is when they have old inventory. You may never know how old their Scentsy Bars are but it doesn’t hurt to ask. It is nice to have some supply on hand — for a last-minute gift as a consumer or a quick cash sale for the consultant.
