Happy Birthday Shakespeare!!! I think you are 450 years old today? I've been to your Globe Theatre in London and I know its the 3rd version of the Globe but I wonder what it was like to listen to one of your awesome plays back then. I have studied your plays in school and even seem some hollywood peeps like Kevin Spacey perform. I wish your plays werent soooo long though...seriously most of them are at least 3 hrs? I know there wasnt much to do back then but how did you not fall asleep?
Its a shame that there was no electricity back then but if there was I can totally see you penning your plays by Scentsy light instead of candles. I think you would have gone for the woody smells what do you think? Would probably remind you of the grand smells of the wood theatres you spent sooo much of your time back then?
A bit of fun......but bet you didnt know that some of our coolest Scentsy products have a bit of a link to some of Shakespeares works?
Bramble the Bear Scentsy Buddy:
Its not very often a live animal is referred to in Shakespeares plays but in 'The Winters Tale' one of the most famous Stage Directions it says the character Exits pursued by a Bear....It was unknown whether they used live bears in the original performances.....Maybe they should have used the Scentsy Buddy instead.
Apple Press Scentsy Bar:
Apple is one of the most common fruits mentioned in Shakespeare plays. Its mentioned in: The Tempest, Twelfth Night, Loves Labour Lost, Merchant of Venice, Taming of Shrew, Henry V, and Henry VIII.
Simply Rose Scentsy Bar:
Another one of Shakespeares most used Scents is Rose (s) and these are mentioned in: Two Gentlemen of Verona, Twelfth Night, Much Ado about Nothing, Midsummer Nights Dream, Loves Labour Lost, As you like it, Alls Well, Taming of the Shrew, amongst many others.
What Scentsy Warmer should Shakespeare warm these gorgeous scents in, well the crown of course.....reminiscent of his plays: Henry V, Richard III, etc. I prefer the tragedies like Hamlet to Shakespeares very long Histories but even still.
Crown Scentsy Warmer
So hope it was a great Birthday ole Will! Here's to another 450 yrs and I know you would have loved Scentsy as much as I do!!!
