I bought these for my kids for Christmas and they are a hit! We homeschool so my kids love doing their school work with their "smell-good" pencil! I have even taken over one for myself. The pencil lead is great for writing... very smooth and easy.

My only suggestion is to NOT use a battery operated or plug-in pencil sharpener. Your pencil will waste away too soon and be gone. Get a sharp hand-held sharpener and you will find the pencil lasts a really long time and sharpens without much effort.

I have to admit that I was doubtful about this product. I've bought a lot of scented items like stickers, erasers, and pencils that had very little scent, even when brand new.

But this product is very, very different! The scent is VERY strong and very pleasant! The plastic tubes that each pencil comes in makes for a great way to store the pencils to keep their scent lasting a long time. I've had one of my smencils for several years, and the scent is still just as strong today as it was the day I bought it used as a flea market in a cracked tube! I recommend storing these in the plastic tubes at all times so their scent stays strong for years. (Or at least until the pencils are used up!) I personally just keep these around for the scent, which I find calming, but you may use them up long before the scent thing even becomes an issue.

If you love scented things as much as I do, I think you'll be really impressed with these. They are, by far, the most strongly scented item I have ever purchased. I give this product five stars all the way!

My 5 year old son is into drawing and he also came home with a scratch and sniff sticker on his schoolwork that he thought was really cool. So when I saw these I thought they'd make a nice little extra hanukah gift. I gave him these with a spiral bound sketch pad. I was surprised by how excited he was(before he even smelled them). Once we opened them...I have to tell you I am having fun right along side of him drawing with these...they just smell so awesome!! I was just sharpening some in the electric sharpener and their smell drifts into the air - lol. My 10 year old daughter thinks they are cool too. 100 PERCENT FUN!!

I recieved my smencils in the mail today, and boy am I happy! They are everything I hoped for and more! The smells are intense and wonderful! They smell just as the lables say they do! There are ten scents and they are:

Rootbeer

Bubblegum
cotton candy
water melon
orange
cinnamon
black cherry
grape
very berry

and
Tropical Blast

Each of them have their own smell and come in their own container so that they will smell for longer. I am very pleased with htis product.

My daughter loved these smencils. They come in the plastic bag shown, and each pencil is individually wrapped in its own easy-to-open, reusable tube. The pencils and the tubes are both made from recycled material. I've seen a few reviewers complain about the individual tube, but it is necessary as each smencil has a different scent and the tubes keep the scents from just blending together. I also find that they come in handy because my daughter can keep a sharpened smencil in her backpack without the tip breaking off.

There are some scents that were much more fun than others, especially for little kids. We could have done without the cinnamon (it's VERY strong) and the orange had too artificial a smell for me, but especially liked the cotton candy, root beer, and watermelon scents. We purchased three packs so we could give them out as party favors, and I found that while all the pencils carried enough scent, the strength of that scent varied from pack to pack.

I do wish that there were a way to order just a single scent, even if I had to order multiples, but I wouldn't mind ordering the variety pack again...these are a far better value through amazon than anything I've seen elsewhere.

My kids love these pencils. There are 10 in this pack, each with a different smell. They are made from recycled paper & are fun for my kids to use at school. I only allow them to take 1 at a time in their backpacks.

I am not a kid, but I love these pencils, okay smencils. They're created from recycled newspapers, most of them smell pretty good, and they're easy to sharpen. Get them!

I am a teacher at a High School in New Jersey and have been buying smencils and giving them out in my classroom for 4 years now. I am now on my 5th case of smencils, so I felt I should share a few observations about the smencils.

Kids love these pencils as prizes, and they are a good product. However, there are a few negatives about them which I list below. (Please note that if you buy them by the case which is 500 pencils, ou only pay 50 cents per pencil. Unfortunately, you get 50 of each of the 10 scents, which means you are stuck with 50 orange and grape smencils which are the least popular scents - see below.)

1) When I first started purchasing smencils, I purchased them directly from the company. Now, the cases are cheaper if you purchase them from distributors. The last 2 cases I purchased from distributors, last year and just recently a few weeks ago. The ones from the distributors have the name of the distributor printed on the smencil. This does not bother me; however, in both cases that I puurchased from the distributors I had around 20% of the smencil cases broken on the bottom with the smencils falling out of the case. This seems to happen because of the printing on the smencils. I never had this problem when I purchased the case directly from smencils.com

2) The erasers always fall of the smencils.

3) The most popular scents were the hazelnut latte and the cookie dough, which were only made from 2007 - 2008. (I ran out of those so quickly, as everyone wanted them.) The least popular scents are orange and grape, which have been around since the inception of smencils. I literally have 2 or 3 buckets of orange and grape sitting around in the closet, since very few people want them.
