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.
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!
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.
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.
This pack of pencils comes in a vinyl zip-tube for easy storage, and each pencil comes in its own labeled, biodegradable corn plastic tube for "scent isolation". I try to keep these pencils in their tubes when I am not using them, and will rotate them out from time to time. They have kept their scent extremely well for me.
The pencils themselves are made out of recycled paper and lead. I love that the paper used still has printing on it; when you sharpen the pencil you can see that these are old newspaper. The lead works very well, it is a solid piece of lead, not that cheap glue-y lead that some pencils have. The erasers are also functional and hold up for a long time.
If you are looking for a way to make writing for yourself (or a young family member) fun, these would be the way to go. With fun scents like root beer, orange, and grape, who wouldn't enjoy writing more?
