Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Scentura Creations, through their multitude of independantly owned distributers across the United States, have only one thing on their minds: Your time and money and how to screw you out of both.

The Scentura business model is nothing new. Just get a bunch of wide-eyed kids to peddle your inferior products and keep most of the money. This isn't particularly illegal. You will find a version of it just about everywhere you go.

So why is everybody so up-in-arms over Scentura? Because they are a bunch of lying scumbags, that's why.

I have written and rebutted MANY articles on this dispicable company for the last several months, and I'm not quitting anytime soon. Chris Westphal (Onyx Wholesale) and his Company of Clowns is but a mere drop in the bucket when it comes to the unethical business practices these repugnant distributors promote world wide, but we will just have to start right where we are. [continued below]....


If distributors for Scentura Creations had any brains, they would stop any and all deceptions when it came to their bullsh*t hiring practices. And deceptive they are. They would save thenselves (and you) a garbage scow of headaches if they just told their potential 'new hires' the truth:

"You will be selling no-brand bottles of pefume out of a card-board box in shopping mall parking lots at all hours of the day and night for 100% commission. And if you're any good at it, you might have a future as an independant distributor. Don't think you're up to it? Then leave the room now and thank you for showing an interest."

That's it. That's all there would be to it. But, no, they won't/can't tell you that. Fairly obvious why. 

Scentura distributors rely heavily on psychological manipulation through half-truths and flat-out lies in an attempt gain control of your motivations. Lofty speeches are made to new recruits, egos are stroked, and promises of big money 'just around the corner' are made. 

Most salesman who are successful enough out in the field to open their own offices, on average, go bust within a year or less. Or have to move to another state, or have to continually change their business name to keep the deception in motion. One hundred years ago, we had a name for people who did business like that. They were called Gypsies! 

It is also telling as to why no Scentura Creations distributor in history has ever used the name 'Scentura' for their individual business moniker. Due to overwhelmingly negative public opinion internationally, it wouldn't last a week. They'd be better off naming a distributor 'Freshy Horse Piss Pansies in a Bottle' than, 'Scentura'. Though the former rather than the latter would arguably be more accurate.

If this is the first post you have come across in your quest for the truth about Scentura Creations, don't stop here. There is a plethora of insider information, accounts of deceptive recruiting practices, and every nightmare experience ever had with this company detailed on this site.

Make yourself a sandwich, pour a great big glass of wine, and read on (this will take a while)...

#2 General Comment

Have YOU taken action against YOUR local Scentura Distributor?

AUTHOR: Lionel Cosgrove - (USA)


The life-blood of these offices is the classified ads. If their classifieds are no longer allowed in the newspapers the distributor will not be able to place their ads and the pyramid will collapse. They will be forced to close down shop and move to an area where the local papers have yet to catch on. The

first thing you have to do is write a letter or email to the newspaper classifieds as well as websites where these ads are placed. Be sure to keep it professional. If you live in a large metropolitan area this could take a lot of work so be patient and stick with it. Read other newspapers classifieds and search other job sites to find more of these ads and send letters/emails to them.

Before sending the letter it is important to include;

If the letter doesnt work, send another more stern letter. Then send letters to other news sources warning them of the misleading ads. This way they wont be able to advertise elsewhere as a back up plan.

Send multiple letters or emails if you have to.

You can find some sample letters in the thread below. They were posted by JD back in 2005. Just know the letters are a bit dated so be sure to make them as professional and up-to-date as possible. There are tons of websites that can give advice on writing good professional letters.

For testimonials from former employees and owners look in this thread under the poster Noah from Chicago.

Other measures include:

  • Starting petitions

  • Writing your local politicians

    • State Representatives

    • City Councilmen/women

    • Aldermen/women

  • Contacting news agencies
Im open to any ideas!

Still pray for me, oh, Christian Horse-piss seller...? Ya know, last week was Palm Sunday. Did you go to church, or were you too busy collecting on the FFAR money? You do remember telling me what a dedicated Christian you are, don't you?

Move on my friend, move on.  New picture but same old negative, skeptical, and ignorant BS that you always post. 

Bottom line Rio some people will read your post and believe you and continue to work day to day paycheck to paycheck jobs and that'll be their destiny never having much more and then there will be others that read yours and mine and some will believe me and give it a chance.  Some of those will make it and some of them won't.  But since I've began posting on this website I've promoted two people into offices that read our posts and believe me.  And just so you understand at the end of 2010 that'll be a extra 15-20 thousand that I made this year.  And those two people went through the same interview process I went through.  Had a orientation just like I did.  And went through and completed a training program just like my self.  And they both did well as did I one of the guy's averaged over $500 during his training.  And now they both have the same opportunity that I have.  And I'm gonna do everything in my power help them to be successful business owners!!  Congrats to them!!

Have you gotten a "real job" yet Rio? 

Good Luck and Best Wishes
