me do, me do

UPDATE I've gotten some feedback concerning the aroma beads:

"mmm, let me kill your lemming... I have the peppermint vanilla from Xmas, and I was kinda disappointed. First of all there is not very much "throw", so the scent does not linger or fill up a room. Second, when the beads dry out in the dish, they are really kind of gross looking. Sounds silly, but it takes away from the elegant look of the burner."

"I have to agree with Rebecca. We tried the cinnamon bark and the scent is not that strong. I did find it worked better if you added a teaspoon of water to the sludge. However the burner is great. Use a tea light and some essential oil with some water and it will scent your whole house. No kidding."

And I started thinking, aren't aroma beads supposed to be nothing more than essential oil, in a tiny "bubble" form. Perhaps these could still work, with a little tweaking. If the scent wasn't strong enough, perhaps they could just concentrate it more. I'm thinking (but I could be wrong) the beads should be nothing more than essential oils contained in a thin layer of "plastic." Similar to a gel-cap you take for headaches. So I wonder what went possibly wrong here? Either way, I hope they revisit the product!

Ok, all on the count of three; who wants aroma beads back? Huh, huh? Perhaps in non-holiday scents (mmm! Some wonderful lavender + lemongrass aroma beads to scent up my home!) They're just so pretty. Like little glittery aircare caviar!

You know, I've never tried them. And I want to so badly! Who wants them back, speak up or forever well, just speak up!

I haven't tried them either. I haven't seen them in the stores. Does the smell linger in the air? What scent can someone recommed to me?

Anyone......

Nathan, I cannot believe you never tried the aroma beads. I am VERY disappointed.

Robert, I was TOO poor. I'm always financially deprived (seriously!) so I had to make Holiday decisions. And the scents candles, cleaner spray, dish soap and hand wash beat the aroma beads out! LOL Plus they were like $12.99... sniff.
