Well, that all ends here. Yes, folks. There are Scentsy scents I don't care for. It goes back to that "scents are personal" thing. I may not like the forthcoming scent, but you may adore it. I think it has a lot to do with our scent "memory"--what we associate scent with--that colors our love, or dislike, of scent. So, don't let my negative review color your urge to try it. If you're unsure, find your local consultant and get a good whiff of her/his tester!
Scentsy says Wishing Well smells like: A pool of fresh rainwater, with soothing water hyacinth and subtle green fern.
I get funeral flowers with a hint of old-lady perfume. The full disclaimer is that I don't care for any floral scents that feature gardenias, jasmine, rose, or, as it turns out, hyacinth. So, if you are a floral lover, this is probably the scent for you. I bought this one before I was a Scentsy consultant, so I went on the rainwater description smell-unsniffed because I tend to really like water scents. Not a good plan. Now I have six cubes of Wishing Well languishing in my Scenty cupboard, just taking up space. Sigh.
On the positive side, it has a HUGE throw, and the last power was phenomenal--several days. So, if Wishing Well is the scent for you, one bar will last you a good long while. In summary:
Scent Rating: 4
Lasting Power: Excellent!
