Comments: Scentsy Fragrance products are sold through a network of more than 200,000 independent consultants running home-based businesses in the US, Puerto Rico, Guam, Canada, Germany, the UK and Ireland. The Scentsy Family of brands now includes three entirely unique brands that consultants can sell, including Scentsy Fragrance, featuring its flagship wickless candles and a complete line of personal care products known as Layers by Scentsy; Velata, a line of fondue warmers and accessories featuring Belgian chocolate and savory cheese; and Grace Adele, a mix and match style system of women’s accessories, which the company launched last August.

Also in 2012, Scentsy, Inc. was named to Forbes magazine’s Hire Power list. Scentsy was No. 20 on the list of 100 privately held businesses for hiring nearly 600 people from 2008-20011.

“At Scentsy, we strive to deliver fragrances that are true representations of natural ingredients,” said Heidi Thompson, president of Scentsy, Inc. and co-owner with her husband Orville.

Scentsy’s Charitable Cause Warmer from last winter, Champion, benefitted the Special Olympics. Through Feb. 28, 2013, Scentsy donated $8 from the sale of each Champion Warmer $35 to the organization. Scentsy also named Violet Leaf as its ScenTrend for 2013, a designation of an up-and-coming fragrance note that comes from trend analysis by fragrance experts at Scentsy and international fragrance houses. This fragrance is gentle on the senses, providing tranquil moments of respite and calm, according to the company.
