Reed Diffusers to Scent Your Room

If you love walking into a room that has a light, delicate lingering scent in the air, you’ll love Wickedly Sent’s Reed Diffusers. Reed Diffusers are a decorative and environmentally friendly way to scent and freshen your home, office or dorm room.  We’ve just added a new twist to our diffusers!  Now, you can select both a beautiful glass bottle that will go with your decor, the fragrance that best fits your mood or the mood you want to convey, then simply slip the reeds in the bottle.  As the scent travels up the reeds, the aroma gently wafts throughout the room creating a delightful ambience. Depending on your personality, you might select something exotic and oriental like Jasmine Waterlily, which is great for the living or bath room, or you may prefer something bold and outdoorsy like Woods ‘n Spice. Looking for something in a more floral bouquet?  Try Lilac or Sunflower Reed Diffusers.  A favorite for the bedroom is Lavender, which many people say helps them to relax and sleep better. Each of our Reed Diffusers have similar properties to aromatherapy, ensuring you’ll enjoy a warm sense of well-being from using them scattered strategically throughout your home.  For each scent, we have suggested rooms in which we feel they’ll work best, but don’t be afraid to experiment…and please send us your suggestions! One of the advantages of Reed Diffusers is that you can enjoy the scent for months without having to replace them, and you’ll never have to worry about remembering to blow out a candle when you leave home. Wickedly Sent’s Reed Diffusers may be purchased online or at our shop located...

Hydrangea, Wick-edly Sent’s Limited Edition Scent for Spring

We don’t know too many people who don’t love to see and smell the beautiful hydrangea.  We call it the “Queen of the Springtime Garden.”  This lovely flower comes into bloom in the spring and ranges in color from white to pink to magenta and from pale blue to lavender to deep periwinkle.  The ball-like shape of its blooms and the stalkiness of its stems make it one of the most distinctive flowers in the garden. To celebrate its appearance in gardens across  the Finger Lakes, Wick-edly Sent has introduced hydrangea as a limited edition scent for spring. Throughout the spring season we will be offering our all natural bath and body products and our olive oil soap in the hydrangea scent.  We will also have our scented soy candles available in hydrangea to fill your rooms with the delightful aroma of one of the floral queens of the spring garden.  If you wish you could carry the scent of hydrangea around with you, you’ll love Wick-edly Sent’s Hydrangea perfume! And just as a reminder, if you like hydrangea and other floral scents, for May, our Scent of the Month is Lilac.  You can enjoy our bath oils and body lotions, our olive oil soap and our scented soy candles in the lilac scent at 25% off the regular price. All of our products are hand-made at our store in beautiful downtown Canandaigua and are made of all-natural...

Lilac, Wick-edly Sent’s Scent of the Month

At last, spring is in the air and the lilacs are about to come into bloom!  Every May, a half million people flood to Rochester, NY for the weeklong Annual Lilac Festival, held this year, May 8 – 17, 2009 in beautiful Highland Park.  This festival has been happening since 1898 when about 3000 people gathered one Sunday in May to stroll through the lilacs in their Sunday best.  Since then, it has grown and become an event people in this region await with anticipation each Spring.   Highland Park was designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, the landscape architect who designed Central Park in New York City.  Today, the park boasts over 1200 lilac bushes representing 500 varieties of lilacs.  Because of this, Rochester was named “The Lilac Capital of the World.” If you’ve ever stood in the park when the lilacs are in full bloom, the most delicious scent floats on the breeze.  It is this scent that we’ve captured and chosen for May’s Scent of the Month. During the entire month of May, you can purchase our lovely Lilac-scented olive-oil soap, all natural lotion, body wash, body spray, hand silk and soy scented candles for 25% off normal retail!  If you love lilacs, you’ll be delighted with our lilac products that will make you feel as if you just picked a bouquet of lilacs fresh from the garden! And just in time for Mother’s Day, we’ve created the Lilac Gift Set above that contains a 4 oz. Soy Candle, Lilac Body Wash, Body Lotion, and a free body puff which comes in an easy-to-carry zipper bag, all for the special sale price of $22.49.  Your mother will be thrilled!

The Scent of Success

For most people, the sense of smell is one of the strongest and most impactful catalysts to emotional memory. We’ve all had the experience of smelling an aroma or scent that transports us back to childhood or a favorite memory…baking cookies…freshly mown grass…a kindergarten room…your first love’s perfume or after shave…. The aroma becomes a trigger, evoking fond memories. You can use the strength of the sense of smell by wearing a “signature scent” that people associate with you and that becomes part of your personal branding.   By wearing a fragrance (or set of fragrances) on a regular basis, you are “packaging” an image of yourself for the people you meet.  Their impression now includes the olfactory sense, as well as the visual and auditory, making the mental image that much stronger. Why is that important? Perfumes and fragrances have long been associated with royalty.  Commoners were not able to afford them.  Today, fragrances and scents are still associated with success.  The subtle perception is that, if you wear fragrance, you must be successful.  By wearing a scent that becomes your signature, you are adding the scent of success to how people perceive you. Although fragrance can contribute to that perception of success, there are several things to avoid: ~ Avoid combining multiple scented products – Don’t use scented deodorant, add scented hair products and then top it off with a  fragrance.  Not only will that contribute to olfactory confusion, it’s likely to drive away some people. ~ Don’t overdo it – Have you ever smelled someone’s fragrance from across the room?  This is not what you want.  You want a subtle hint of fragrance, not the whole field of flowers. ~ Choose a...
