Smencils – Gourmet Scented Pencils Made With Rolled Newspaper

Graphite Smencils (Image courtesy Perpetual Kid)
By Andrew Liszewski

On one hand, I really like that these Smencils are made from sheets of recycled newspaper tightly rolled around a #2 graphite core. Not only do they sharpen like a regular pencil, but you also get to see the different layers of newsprint as you grind them down, kind of like the rings on a tree. However, why they felt the need to then soak the pencils in gourmet liquid scents is beyond me. (Supposedly made by an award winning fragrance company.) The Smencils are available in packs of 10 (packaged in separate freshness tubes) and each one has a different scent including bubble gum, cinnamon, popcorn, grape, cotton candy, very berry, chocolate, orange, watermelon and rootbeer. Personally, I abhor anything that comes with a ‘scent’, right back to those scratch n’ sniff stickers of yesteryear (this is supposed to be pizza?!) and the only way I’d buy a set of these Smencils is if they added a ‘classic Faber-Castell’ scent option, which they probably won’t. But you’re welcome to pick up a set from Perpetual Kid for $11.99.

    I like smencils because they smell raslly good. They also last long and are helping save trees in a fun way. Also, kids really love them and their a great tool to help them act right if you do a prize drawing every week to get one. Smencils are also the longest lasting smelly pencil in the USA.
