And just like that another Bath & Body Works Candle Day has come and gone! Crazy that Christmas is right around the corner!! December is my favorite time of year to shop for myself! I know, I should be focusing on those holiday gifts, but treat your self right?!? RIGHT?!?!
So my little holiday gifting hack is to make sure to get all of my holiday gift shopping finished BEFORE Thanksgiving! That way I can take advantage of all those fabulous deals that show up in my inbox daily without a guilty conscience!!!
I’m happy to report that 99% of my shopping was completed way before Thanksgiving, so this Bath & Body Works Candle Day, I was able to splurge on every last thing that I wanted guilt free!
Listed below are the candles I scooped up during the sale, in the order of how fabulous they ended up smelling for me once at home!
No idea what Bath & Body Works Candle Day is? Make sure to check out my last post so you can take advantage of the next Bath & Body Works
Fragrance ~ Blue Freesia, White Peach, Fresh Clementine with Essential Oils.
Opinion ~ This is definitely not a holiday candle or a limited edition, it’s just my holy grail Bath & Body Works obsession! Of course I had to scoop my favorite scent up! It will be perfect to burn after I go through all my holiday scents! If you’re into classy perfumes and luxuries, you will love this boujee smelling candle. Smells fancy and expensive!!
PINK FAIRY GUMDROP
Fragrance ~ This is what Christmas smells like: Sparkling Sugared Berries, Pink Cotton Candy, Sprinkle of Fairy Dust with Essential Oils
Opinion ~ My favorite out of all of the holiday scents!!! I was so excited to burn the thing that as soon as I walked into my house, I had to light the thing up!!! Literally smells like candy! So yummy!!! The scent is also pretty strong which is amazing. Everyone who walks in my door always complements the scent of my home when this thing is lit!!!
Fragrance ~ Sparkling Champagne, Red Apple Slices, Iced Sugar Crystals with Essential Oils
Opinion ~ smells like berry!! I’m a #TeamFruity girl when it comes to scents so I am in love!!!! Plus, who doesn’t love mimosas?!? Best name EVER! Unfortunately, I do have an issue with this candle. It’s not exactly the strongest scent. Smells amazing, but it can definitely be stronger. I love it when you can smell a candle throughout your home, not just in one room.
Fragrance ~ Ballerina Rose Petals, Soft Peony Blossoms, Summer Greenery with Essential Oils.
Opinion ~ If you’re a #TeamFloral girl, this is the candle for you. This is actually the candle my daughter picked out and honestly, it’s not that bad! I usually don’t care for florals since they remind me of old lady lol, but ballerina rose isn’t that bad! Reminds me of the Rose Water lotion Bath & Body Works had out around Valentine’s Day last year. The candle is also pretty strong! You can smell this thing no matter where you are in your home!
TEA & BISCUITS
Fragrance ~ Iced Lemon, Sugar Crystals, Buttery Shortbread with Essential Oils
Opinion ~ Not my favorite, but also not that bad! It does have a fruity scent, I’m assuming due to the lemon which does make it pleasant!!! Unfortunately it just nothing special in my book. Love the packaging! The scent is strong! But it’s just average smelling to me.
CAFÉ AU LAIT
Fragrance ~ Rich Roasted Coffee, Sugared Brioche, Vanilla Crème with Essential Oils
Opinion ~ This is probably the saddest thing I have ever said about Bath & Body Works!!! I’m obsessed with the packaging! I love all things Paris!! One of my favorite cities, but this scent?!? Ughhh. I’m just not a fan at all! It will probably be the last candle I end up burning because it’s just not my jam. Very vanilla with a very strange after smell which I still can’t figure out what it is lol. I almost wonder if they put the worst candle scent in the cutest package just to sell them? So disappointing!
Gingerbread Holiday Candle House
I didn’t purchase this fabulousness at the candle sale, but I did purchase it a few day prior so I figured this was the perfect place to share my latest favorite item of all times!!! I’m literally so obsessed with this 3 wick candle holder house!
Every year Bath & Body Works comes out with a collectible holiday candle house. They are always so pretty, but they never had a design that screamed go spend all of your money on a candle holder! This year? A pink house with a nutcracker AND a cat in the side window?! This thing was made for me!!!!!
Originally priced at $150, it really is a show stopping conversation piece. The photos above do not do it justice!! I did however stack as many coupons as I possibly could at my local store which knocked the price down a ton! Keep that in mind for next year! Don’t pay full price. Wait for the holiday mailer coupons and stack them at the store to purchase your house. Your bank account will thank you for that savings!!!
Every year Bath & Body Works mails out a free $13 gift coupon out to their entire mailing list! If you’re not on their mailing list, do it just for your free gift coupon! And every year I save that coupon for Candle Day and scoop up a new candle holder! This year I had my eyes on the glittery snowflake holder and I was lucky enough to snag one! I was at our local store at 8am open time, so lucked out and just happened to get my hands on my first pick this year! WooHoo!!!!
Did you take advantage of the Candle Day sale?!
