It’s Scentsy’s anniversary month, and we couldn’t be more excited! Having just wrapped up Warm the Heart Week, we’ve already been getting in touch with our roots. But as a home fragrance company, no anniversary celebration would be complete without revisiting our first scents. Let’s dive into Scentsy’s original fragrances!
In 2004 Scentsy launched as a party planning company, complete with a picture book of products to introduce ourselves to the world. While not quite a full-fledged Scentsy catalog as we know them today, this 2004 publication laid the foundation for the future. While the coming years would see the introduction of seasonal catalogs, professional graphic designers, copywriters and more, it’s undeniable the passion for fragrance was there from the very beginning. This 2004 “proto-catalog” included a whopping 80 fragrances — and a few, like Baked Apple Pie and Sunkissed Citrus are still available today!
While we can’t go through every single fragrance we launched with in 2004, we can highlight a few Scentsy trends from the early days. It’s clear our love of sweet, bakery notes has always been there, with scents ranging from Sticky Cinnamon Bun and Sugar Cookie to Perfect Pecan Pie and Peppermint Patty. While we love all our fragrance families, there’s no denying we wanted to show our sweet side from the start!
’Tis the seasons — all of them
As mentioned above, Scentsy’s current practice of releasing seasonal catalogs wasn’t in place in 2004. For that reason, the fragrances included in this first publication had a lot of ground to cover: Wintery scents like Eggnog were listed right alongside warm weather favorites like Fresh Cut Cantaloupe. While you won’t find Christmas Tree Scentsy Bars in our Spring/Summer lineup anymore, it’s clear Scentsy has always had a commitment to providing fragrances for every time of year!
Scents of the past
While we can’t keep every fragrance around from season to season, it doesn’t mean these classic Scentsy Bars are gone for good. Twice a year our Bring Back My Bar promotion lets Scentsy fans vote to bring back retired scents for a limited time! Scentsy Club members also have access to the Always Get My Bar perk — allowing them to keep receiving their favorite fragrances from season to season, even if they’re no longer in the catalog!
