Ollie the Elephant Scentsy Buddy: Review and Giveaway {2011 Holiday Gift Guide}

It wasn’t until recently that I was introduced to Scentsy products.  I love so many of the products available, but immediately fell in love with the Scentsy Buddy, adorable animal friends with a zippered pocket to hold a yummy Scentsy fragrance!

We were sent Ollie the Elephant to review.  I cannot get over how adorable he is!  I also chose the Christmas Cottage scent pak for him.  Knowing this was for Christmas, I wanted a scent that made me think of Christmas. This does! It smells amazing, with a blend of Valencia oranges, raspberries, cloves, and spices.  The scent pak smelled very strong coming out of the package, so I was curious to see how well it would smell up the room once I placed it in Ollie.

Putting in the scent pak was easy.  Simply unzip the pocket in the back and stuff it in!

Connor loves Ollie, and couldn’t resist giving him a few kisses and squeezes.

I really really wanted to keep him here for Connor and Erik’s room, but decided to try him out in the baby room at my church first.  You see, with multiple babies using this room, you can imagine- though there is a diaper pail- that the room can get to smelling rather unpleasant at times.  I really wanted to see if the scent pak would help with the smell in the room (not to mention I knew Ollie would cutesy up the room a bit)!  I placed him on the shelf (then gave him a friend since he looked lonely) and left the room, waiting a bit before checking to see how long it would be before I could smell the yumminess.

After a bit, I went back and checked the room. I was surprised that I could already smell the scent pak!  A few days later, when we went back to church, the room was smelling like Christmas Cottage!  I was so happy, and very impressed!

So now I’m struggling to decide whether to leave Ollie in the baby room at church, where he’s clearly doing a lot of good, or whether to bring him home so Connor (and his room) can enjoy the benefits of Ollie.  I’m thinking I just can’t resist his cuteness, and he’ll be coming home with us on Sunday!
