IScentU Mini Lamp
I received a really neat item for review recently. I have to tell you ahead of time though that I like it just as much for how beautiful it is as I do how well it works. This mini lamp from buy IScentU is simply gorgeous. I love how dainty and feminine it looks, but not only is it pretty, it is useful. This little bottle is a fragrance lamp. Now, with three dogs, one cat and 6 children, I often have odors in my home that I need to deal with. (Like wet dog, a litterbox that is due for a cleaning, dirty socks, etc.) So, I tried the IScentU Lamp and Fragrance. Apple Splash is the scent I received. It smells wonderful. Light and crisp.
So, Here is how this little lamp works. You fill it approx. 1/2 to 2/3 full of the Scentier Lampe Parfum (This is the fancy name for the fragrance oil.). The lamp came with a little funnel to make filling easier. Also it is recommended that you put a plate or saucer under the lamp while filling the lamp as spills could damage finished surfaces. Insert the Platinum Wick into the lamp. Allow the lamp to sit about five minutes with the cut-off cap on so the wick has time to absorb the fragrance. Now, you can light your IScentU Lamp. This lights differently than a stone burner as it heats up without a visible flame. Remove your cut-off cap and hold your flame to the side of the Platinum Wick. Not the top. If a flame is seen, gentle blow it out. Place your decorative Crown Cap on top and enjoy. Here is a youtube video from IScentU on lighting your lamp:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XcLT3hDIHEI&lr=1 Always make sure that the lamp is set in a safe place. It only took moments for my family to notice the fragrance filling the room. They do recommend that you do not use longer than 1/2 hour at a time as the fragrance can become overwhelming.
I was very pleased with my experience with the IScentU Lamp. As stated previously, it is not only pretty, it is functional. I could no longer smell damp dog after using the IScentU product.
IScentU Lamps come in many colors and designs. There will be a match for just about any decor you have in your home. There are also many fragrances to choose from. I am hoping to try some other fragrances in the future! Maybe Lavender Fields or Eucalyptus Mint.
