My daughter is seven and already loves make-up and beauty products. She absolutely adores perfume but if I am honest, the two that she has are cheap nasty and smell terrible. Not only that, in an effort to adorn herself with perfume, she ends up tipping it everywhere. I always know straight away when she has been using it as not only does she smell of it, the whole house smells like a cheap perfume factory. So what do you do when you have a child who is a bit too young for perfume but likes to smell nice?
Scent Stiks from Scent Republik might just be the solution to that problem.
As the name would suggest, Scent Stix are scents in a stick. Ingenious. It is shaped like a thick pen and when you take off the lid, you find what looks like a colourless marker pen inside. Colourless but with the most amazing scents, scents that you can doodle on yourself.
There are three scents to choose from: raspberry, strawberry and cassis (WHOOSH), marine aqua, apple blossom and sweet citrus (CHILL) and sweet vanilla, mandarin and rich praline (FAB!). All three Scent Stiks smell refreshing and wonderful but my daughter and I agreed that CHILL is our favourite.
Scent Stiks are a fantastic idea for so many reasons. Firstly, it is a brilliant idea to package perfume in this easy to apply, mess-free way which is perfect for tweens. The way it is designed makes it fun to use as they can doodle scents wherever they want without leaving any marks or being overwhelmed by perfume. Secondly, the brightly coloured packaging is really appealing and as soon as my daughter spotted the Scent Stiks she was keen to know what they were and how to use them. Finally, they are simply fun. They are fun to look at, fun to use and really uplifting.
Scent Stiks are completely safe and all made in the UK and cruelty-free. There are three scents currently available and three more in the pipeline. I, for one, will be on the list to buy the next three and I think this is a brilliant idea and my daughter has loved using them so much and my house smells really fresh and wonderful which is preferable to the cheap perfume factory smell we had before.
Scent Stiks would make great stocking fillers and the only cost £4.95 each or a pack of three costs £14.95. Find out more and buy Scent Stiks on the Scent Republik website.
