When it is humid, there are water molecules in the air which gives the scent something to "hang" on to. When it's dry, scents won't linger as long because there's nothing for them to attach themselves to. Your Scentsy room/closet will smell great, but your bars won't last quite as long.

People also ask, does Scentsy wax lose its smell?

The wax does not evaporate, it does not get hot enough to, the scent just eventually dissipates, remove that wax from your warmer before adding a new cube, if you just add to the old wax it will dilute the new wax and your scent won't last as long.

Also, how long do the scented wax cubes last? An entire bar can last 50-80 hours depending on the scent notes in the fragrance, so one cube last 6.25-10 hours. You can make your wax retain scent longer if you only warm it to the point your room is filled with scent, and then turn it off.

Use a Timer Therefore you can maximize the scent by controlling when it is releasing the fragrance. Scentsy Warmers take no longer than 30 minutes to melt the wax and start releasing the scent.
