Boho Scentsy Bar

I made the fateful decision to join Scentsy a year ago. I now hold in my hand the “Boho Scentsy Bar” and read the product description. This particular scent is part of the Fall and Winter Collection. The description reads, “A Bohemian fragrance of clove-studded winter apples entwined with juicy black plums, candied mulberries and cinnamon sticks.” I put my nose close to the Scentsy Bar and inhale deeply.

The piercing scent of cloves I smell distinctly. There is nothing else in my estimation that smells quite like them. The scent is strong and unique but pleasant and evokes feelings of autumnal or winter festivities. Underneath the cloves I do detect a hint of apples which works to mellow the bite of the cloves. To be honest, the plums and candied mulberries are not as present in the mixture as the other aspects of the scent. Perhaps their function is to accent the other scents in some subtle way. I am not sure I would even identify the scent of a plum or a candied mulberry if it was presented to me on its own. Of course, the cinnamon is there in the mix as well and everybody knows what cinnamon smells like. In this way it works to tie the other scents together into one comprehensive mixture.

I take my nose away from the “Boho Scentsy Bar” and ponder my experience. I wonder if by “Bohemian” they mean the region of Germany or the hippy variety. I have never been to Germany but I have lived in Burlington, Vermont and hung around people who described themselves as hippies. After taking in the intoxicating scent of the “Boho Scentsy Bar” I assume it refers to the German type of Bohemian. I am not sure. This is just one of many exciting mysteries I have encountered ever since I made the fateful decision to join Scentsy and enter their world.
