I love Bath & Body Works! But, I don't like really strong flowery and perfumey fragrances for my house. Not only that, but my husband would have an absolute cow if I had to much (as he calls it) foo-foo girly smell saturating the place!! These Wallflowers release just a hint of fragrance!
COCONUT LIME VERBENA- ABOUT THE FRAGRANCE
Bath and Body Works Desciption of the fragrance is - fresh coconut, lime and fragrant verbena, warmed by vanilla and musk.
When I first saw the fragrance I thought to myself...yuck!COCONUT LIME??EEEWW!!..until I sniffed it! You would think that with the coconut this would be a tropical suntan oil smelling product..well I don't think you get more than just a hint of coconut, none of the individual scents listed stand out or over shadow each other. All I can say is that they have this perfectly blended and balanced! I would describe this as a clean and refreshing scent.NOT perfumey or heavy. It's a very light fragrance so i don't recommend it if you are looking to cover up odors with it.It just adds a little extra touch to the feel of your home. It's so hard to describe the actual scent, so if you haven't checked it out yet...give it a sniff next time you are in a Bath & Body Works store!
These Wallflowers are just a plug in oil warmer...but I think that they offer better scents than you would find at a regular store.
So when I bought these I bought the "Starter Kit" which includes 1 plug in fragrance bulb warmer and 1 (.8floz) fragrance bulb. I also bought a bulb replacement, this has 2 bulbs per package.I paid $6.00 each for both the Starter kit and the pack of replacement bulbs. They were on sale ($6.00) Normal price is $12.50ea. So I suggest buying them on sale! (They go on sale quite often! I usually stock up then).
These are for small to medium size rooms, if you have a larger room you may want 2. Each fragrance bulb lasts about 6-8 weeks.
One weird thing about these is that when you are putting the bulb and the warmer together ( it twists/screws on) the old rule of righty tighty, lefty loosey is completely out the window. You have to twist LEFT to attach the bulb...we just thought that was odd.
I think the basic design of this is cute, the top of the warmer looks like a flower (duh..WALLFLOWERS! LOL!)The only thing that bugs me about this product it that it's kind of bulky! The warmer and the bulb when put together is about 6 inches tall and when plugged in, it sticks out about 3 inches. This may not be a problem for you and wasn't for me at first. However my son started crawling a little over a month ago and these attract his attention. I've had to move them to hidden locations or to higher outlets.
