Adored Scentsy Bar

Soon after I made the decision to join Scentsy I came in contact with the Adored Scentsy Bar. According to the description of the Adored Scentsy Bar available on the www.dreams-unlimited.com website this product is, “[f]un, flirtatious, cherry black plum and a warm whiff of sandalwood [which together] spin a succulent springtime yarn.” I must admit that I whole heartedly agree with this product description. Upon taking in the vapors of the Adored Scentsy Bar for the first time I did indeed experience the elation that I believe the words “fun” and “flirtatious” allude to. Moreover, my olfactory senses did in fact take in the aroma of “cherry black plum” along with a very distinctive “whiff of sandalwood.”

 

Where this product description runs off the rails as far as I am concerned is in its last five words. These words of which I speak (or write to be accurate) are the ones which claim the Adored Scentsy Bar “spin[s] a succulent springtime yarn.” To my knowledge a “yarn” in this context should be taken to mean “story” as in, “he spins a good yarn” meaning “he tells a good story.” I suppose I can imagine how a scent can tell a good story in that the scent describes a scene or evokes a memory that can be associated with a story line. However, I have a hard time understanding how this springtime yarn spun by the Adored Scentsy Bar is “succulent.”

 

Don’t get me wrong. I understand that this product description was written by another person who made the decision to join Scentsy like me. I imagine they are sitting in a writing room with some other people tasked with the responsibility to devise hundreds of product descriptions for hundreds of Scentsy products. This description may have been the last one of the day written after his or her mind was spent. If this is the case then I can forgive the use of “succulent” to describe a “springtime yarn.”
