Consumer Critique: Scenties

I recently had a chance to review ScenTies, which add a fun twist to hair ties, headbands, and scrunchies. If you're like me, you grew up with scratch-and-sniff stickers, and these are similar - instead of scratching, the scent is released when the accessories are stretched. 

These are pretty fun. They come in a variety of styles to match any outfit, and work well as hair ties or bracelets. They also have seven scents: cotton candy, bubblegum, vanilla cupcake, strawberry, sour apple, watermelon, and chocolate fudge brownie. Honestly, I was very impressed with the scents. They weren't cloyingly sweet, they weren't too faint or too strong, they were just noticeable enough to add a little extra something. They'd be perfect for kids who want to start using perfume or body spray but whose parents don't necessary want them to have that yet - they can have just a little extra scent on their wrist or in their hair. (Scent can also be grounding, so I could see these being good for kids who have a sensory need for a familiar scent as well).

This women-owned company has created adorable accessories that are very unique. The fragrances comply with International Fragrance Association Standards and are designed to last for at least six months. 

Founder of Scenties and mom of 4, Kara Dahn, grew up in the 80’s and was obsessed with Scratch & Sniff stickers. She is also an accessories enthusiast that believes that you can never have too many accessories, which is why creating Scenties was the perfect way for her to put together two of her favorite things and create an incredibly useful and original product out of it.

In addition to the exciting new addition to the Scenties collection, the brand is also partnering with Child Mind Institute, which is an independent national nonprofit dedicated to transforming the lives of children and families struggling with mental health and learning disorders. As a mom with a history of anxiety, and now seeing her children struggling with anxiety too, Kara didn’t think twice about supporting this incredible cause.
