ScenTrend 2012: Pink Pepper
What is Scentsy’s new ScenTrend?
We know Scentsy lovers are passionate about fragrance, so Scentsy developed ScenTrend to help our customers stay on top of the latest trends and have unlimited mixing potential. Scentsy tested, analyzed, and worked with their experts and international fragrance houses to identify the up-and-coming fragrance note for 2012 — Pink Pepper. Scentsy will develop a new ScenTrend fragrance each year, and Pink Pepper debuts as the ScenTrend for 2012.
The ScenTrend fragrance Pink Pepper is intended to give a fresh and feisty, short-term burst of fragrance when mixed with anther existing Scentsy scent with the ScenTrend logo. You will recognize the Pink Pepper in your scent, creating a unique twist to the existing Scentsy scent. Pink Pepper is not designed to be warmed by itself, but is an excellent mixer and adds a deeper warm and spicy element to a Scentsy scent of your choice.
What does Pink Pepper smell like?
Pink Pepper is definitely not a wallflower! It’s a complex, multidimensional fragrance—both sweet and spicy, with a bit of floral mixed in. You’ll find it in gourmand fragrances and floral fragrances because it’s ideal for mixing; it adds depth and character while it stimulates the senses. Pink Pepper is provocative and daring, and brings a sense of adventure and empowerment. Its exotic, warm, and spicy nature conveys a take-charge attitude and a sense of renewed energy. Pink Pepper is a perfect way to give some zip and zest to 2012.
Where does pink pepper come from?
The pink pepper scent is distilled from the dark pink berries of the Peruvian pepper tree. It’s not a peppercorn, but the berries are traditionally used in cooking in South America. They have a dry, spicy, and fresh aroma with hints of angelica and juniper. Pink pepper grows wild in South America, but you can find it in the United States. In fact, if you live in Southern California or Florida, you might have some in your backyard and not even know it!
How can I use Pink Pepper to enhance my home fragrance experience?
If you’re already familiar with Scentsy, you know that scent can make a big difference in your life—it brings back memories and enhances your mood. The distinct, complex nature of Pink Pepper encourages experimentation, and we hope you do!
