Jewel Scents
« on: January 13, 2015, 11:54:37 AM »
Jewel Scents is a company that makes scented candles, wax melts, soaps and scrubs that each have a ring hidden inside them. I got a couple of them recently and they are pretty cool, really fun.  The site has information about selling their products as a rep. It peaked my interest, but I'm really hesitant with this kind of thing. Anyone have experience with it? Is it worth it?  How hard is it to sell things like this?

I didn't know that they do stuff where people can sell them, but I would definitely be interested in something like this! Well, only if it's something where it's like an online shop and not something where I have to buy inventory and invest to make money, because a broke college student like me really can't afford to do something like that unfortunately. If anyone else has any information on this or anything like it I would seriously appreciate it!

I do not think that a product like a scented something will have a wider audience appeal. It could sell but you have to make a good marketing plan and in this case it is not easy. You may sell some but I am not sure if there will be a repeat sale.

I have heard of this before but I do not have any personal experience with it. It is just not for me as I am very sensitive to scents and it can bring on migraine for me. I am pretty much stay away from anything that has a smell to it.

I can't see myself selling these stuffs!

The problem is this kind of stuff is really unreliable. It's also easy to think "wow, I just sold fifty bucks worth of product". But when you factor in how many hours you spent trying to sell it, your hourly rate isn't that high.

I think it would depend oh HOW you would sell it? Can you sell it online, or your own website, or someplace like Craigslist or FB? Or is it more of a 'home party' type sales? I think you could be successful with a shop, online, on your own website.

I don't think the 'home party' circuit is quite as popular as it once was. I remember growing up, my mother had many Tupperware, Home Interior, and Sarah Coventry parties...and a crystal party but I can't remember the company. Back in the 70's, 80's and 90's home parties was a BIG thing. (My dad would sigh...and go work on the car in the garage...lol)

I saw those candles at a big truck stop--you know, the kind that has a fast food restaurant in it, and the stop with all the fun stuff you can only find at a BIG truck stop...lol...
The candles smelled really good. I thought they were a little pricey, so I googled it when I got home and realized there is jewelry inside. Next time I get a chance to stop there, I'm going to buy one.

If you already had established yourself as a seller of this kind of product then it will not be difficult to make a sale. The market for this product is very saturated be it online or offline. I would not be investing my time and effort on something that is already being done by a lot of people.

I don't think this would sell pretty well, but who knows, this might work for you. Just make sure you have got some sort of platform wherein you could be able to advertise these products. Probably an Instagram account would help you with that. Best of luck!

I've heard of this somewhere else, I don't remember where. I personally wouldn't do it because I doubt it's a very viable business venture. I can definitely see some people initially getting excited over it, but I feel that once the novelty wears off, you'd have trouble sustaining it. I agree with the person who said you'd probably not get repeat business.

I'm an independent representative for a similar company called Jewelry in Candles.
I just started with it in December and I can actually say it has been worth it for me. As a college student I enjoy it, because I can work my business when I want to and I don't have to follow a schedule. I have done businesses like this in the past before so I'm already used to what works and what doesn't as far as marketing the product. I live in a very small town so I run my business basically 90% online. I usually do online 'parties' which helps to bring in sales and to grow outside of my warm market. Guests usually want to host a party of their own to earn free products. I also offer coupons to return customers and incentives for referrals to get more sales and leads as well.

Sounds like an opportunity my girlfriend might be interested in, as she really loves scented candles. But that will depend if this company is prepared to ship their products overseas. I don't think this could become a full-time job for most people, but a nice side-income opportunity at the very least.

I did not know that they sold these types of candles by independent representatives. I have had a candle that had jewelry in it and it was fun to watch the jewelry appear as the candle melted. I did not get any jewelry that was really worth anything but they are fun to watch. I think you could make a decent amount off of them if you market it right and are able to get repeat business. It might take a while in order to get your customer base and selling them online would probably be better than having to do face to face sales. I guess it comes down to how good of a salesperson you are.
