Scentsy Husband – Reunion 2018

“I’ve earned us a trip for two to Reunion in Melbourne…”

When Leanne first started out as a Scentsy consultant I can remember some distant mention of “trips” and other things but then again, I wasn’t really paying that much attention to be honest.

Scentsy Family Reunion Melbourne 2017 was actually quite an interesting time. Leanne was recognised for reaching Sensational Start Level 3 which I didn’t appreciate until I found that not many consultants get that level so fast.

Melbourne was three days of presentations and an expo which was a great way to see what was coming up and also to meet other Scentsy people.

Passion is one very over used word. All I can say is that 1300 screaming females all in the one place is why I suspect The Beatles stopped touring.

“I’ve earned a cruise!”

Now, Melbourne is one thing but a seven night Mediterranean cruise on a brand new ship is something else.

Sadly, we could not take that trip, or the second Scentsy offered due to logistical reasons.

However, Leanne was able to roll the incentive trip earned into the 2018 Scentsy Reunion at Anaheim California, Scentsy’s first global conference. Scentsy provided all flights and spending money to make up the difference between the conference and the cruise.

I’ve been to a few conferences in the past however nothing compares to the generosity of the Scentsy team. Aside from the trip itself we got to go to Disneyland with an early pass each as well as several giveaways including giant wax bars, Scentsy Go, Sample moulds, Warmer and new testers. Not only does the consultant get these giveaways but so to does the guest.

For me the best part of the reunion is the knowledge gained about what is happening in the Scentsy world as well as networking with the home office team and of course other consultants.

There were new programs launched for different regions (North America, Europe, Australia / New Zealand) as well as new products.

By far the main announcement is that Scentsy and Disney have partnered, Buddies, scents and Sidekicks have been released and are available here.

This I think is a game changer as it raises the Scentsy profile significantly especially as Disney release movies, Scentsy can release new product to match. This means that Scentsy could come to the attention to a wider audience.

Well done to both the Disney and Scentsy teams for seeing this partnership through to fruition and also for somehow keeping it a secret for two years or so.

I was a bit apprehensive about going to the Scentsy Family Reunion however now I can’t wait for the opportunity to attend the next one, if I’m invited along of course. Then again, someone does need to carry the bags…



Scentsy Husband – How it Began

It all started out innocently enough.

“Here, sniff this.” “What do you think?”

“It’s all right, quite nice”.

“Thought you’d like it, and wait, there’s more…”

That I think is how it began, the taking over of our house by Scentsy. I didn’t even know what Scentsy was all those years ago and could not really see the appeal at first. The gear smells great and the products are very well made, I got that bit however why such a fuss?

Gradually though, over time I’ve got to know more and appreciate how the house smells and how the warmers and diffuses look. I kind of had to really otherwise I think I’d have a breakdown.

This blog is from the point of view of the “other half” of a Scentsy Independent Consultant. Behind every great consultant is the support team of box lifters, IT Helpdesk, Web Site Administrators and “does this look alright” people who are mostly blokes that back their better half’s business.

What started out as a bit of an interest by Leanne soon turned into “I could become a consultant, host parties and get a discount!” Which, not long after became “Look, there are rewards of overseas travel I can earn if I get a team together”.

My attitude was and is, for Leanne to go for it. I could not and have not seen any downside to this venture, or “journey” as it is called.

There are a few changes in store for the Scentsy Husband:

  • Your house will look like Del and Rodney’s council flat when a big order is delivered
  • Markets require early starts on weekends for setup, hauling gear a long way from the car, setup time,  hauling back again.
  • Your friends are reminded they need more wax and that new ones have come out.
  • That new car smell doesn’t get a look in due to the Car Bar.
  • Any spare time you thought your Independent Consultant had is take up with the next campaign
  • There is much cutting, folding, stapling, label making and delivering.
  • Sitting in the audience of a Scentsy Reunion is like having a jet engine fire up in your right ear drum every time a new product or give away is announced. I’ve never seen people so enthusiastic for a product. I guess that is a testimant to how good the products are and how good Scentsy as an organisation is to deal with.

There will be future Scentsy Husband posts coming. In the meantime, there is samples to be made, the web site needs an update and boxes to be shifted.
