Bath & Body Works Haul

 
 

You could call me obsessed with Bath & Body Works. My friends all know I have dozens of lotions, sprays, and foam soaps stocked up in my linen closet (no joke). These are all products I use anyways, so when B&BW has a major sale (can you say $3 for each item?!), I take advantage of it!  Ross and I also enjoy lighting candles around the house so we always stock up when we see a good deal on candles, too. 3-wick candles typically run between $22 and $24.50, so if I see them for $12 a piece I'll jump on it. I usually have a 20% off coupon too! 

Purchasing candles online that you've never smelled before can be difficult. You want to like the scent when you light it! And the website description isn't always helpful. Here's my scent profile of each candle I've had the pleasure of smelling: 

 

Strawberry Mimosa - Sour and fruity with a hint of vanilla
Stress Relief Eucalyptus - Straight up eucalyptus
Warm Vanilla Sugar - My all-time favorite, vanilla goodness
Island Margarita - Lime, sour, margarita
Watermelon Lemonade - Sweet, almost candy-like - has a great throw
Beach Orchid - Grandma's perfume, a floral fragrance
Hello Sunshine - Sweet lemon
Champagne Toast - Strawberries with a hint of vanilla
Vanilla Bean - Strong vanilla, more Christmas-y
'Tis the Season - Cinnamon
Sugarcane Pineapple - Sweet pineapple
Blue Ocean Waves - Citrus-y, slightly floral
A Thousand Wishes - Light berry scent with a hint of almond
Black Cherry Merlot - Cherry and raspberry - delicious! 

Warm Vanilla Sugar is definitely my favorite (it's what I have plugged into my wallflowers throughout the house), but Black Cherry Merlot is a very close second! A Thousand Wishes is up there too. Watermelon Lemonade is another one of our favorites, and Champagne Toast definitely has some potential! 

 


Not only is this the first Champagne Toast candle I've purchased, this is the first BBW candle I've gotten with this awesome quilted lid (left photo)! How neat?! 
In the middle photo, as you can see, the actual jar is textured and doesn't have a label. Almost all of my BBW candles have a small amount of wax in the bottom of the jar that the wicks can't burn. I save all of them, and once I have enough I will combine all the wax to make a new candle. I LOVE using these jars because they are the 3-wick size and I don't have to go through the hassle of removing any labels! Also, if the color is uneven in the new candle you can't really tell because of the color and texture of the jar. And in the right photo, I am in love with these new jars! There were also some that said XOXO, I Love Mom, and Happy Birthday. So cute! 

Are you obsessed with Bath & Body Works as much as I am?
