Hello!! I go crazy over Fall scented candles and this year I've purchased a few (too many)! Today I'm sharing which ones I've picked up and I'm doing this post in collaboration of my good friend Pilar from Beauty and More by Pilar! Please go check out her blog too and see which candles she picked up!
So far this year I've purchased 7 Fall candles, and I shared one in my last haul which was the pumpkin coconut form B&BW so I'm not going to share that one again. So today I have 6 to show you, 3 from Bath and Body Works and two from Walmart. I really wasn't planning on getting this many since I still have a few from last year, but I got suckered into the 2 for 2 deal at B&BW!
I've wanted Marshmallow Fireside for two years now and it's always been sold out. I'm excited because this is a scent that I can burn though the holidays and Christmas as well! It's described as a warm blend of toasted marshmallow, smoldering woods and cream vanilla. This one is great because it's a sweet scent but not too sweet.
Autumn is described as bright red apples, cedarwood, and notes of fir balsam. This one is amazing because you can definitely smell the apples and it just has a very light woodsy smell to it.
The next two are Radiant Red Maple and Brown Sugar Allspice. I picked these two because I didn't have any other like them.
Radiant Red Maple is described as red Macintosh apples, smokey woods and a hint of toasted mashmallow. This scent is a little lighter and it smells like maple syrup and apples. It's not my favorite and I probably wouldn't repurchase it.
Brown Sugar Allspice makes your house smell like you've been baking cookies and pies all day. The description for this one is just brown sugar crystals and freshly ground allspice. This one is a very sweet scent.
So I saw this candles at Walmart and thought they looked exactly like the B&BW candles! They have 3 wicks and smell pretty good when you open the lid and sniff them. I really didn't want or need anymore candles but I was curious. Because these are only $5. FIVE DOLLARS! So yes I wanted to see how they compared. I picked up Caramel Apple and Pumpkin Waffels.
Caramel Apples is described as crisp fresh apples robed in rich caramel. And it smells like this that. It has an amazing scent to it. I reminds me of the hot caramel apple spice from starbucks!
Pumpkin Waffels is described as delicious pumpkin Waffels topped with maple syrup and brown sugar. I wanted this one because I really wanted the pumpkin pecan Waffels from B&BW but they were sold out everytime I went. This one has a nice scent to it as well, and its not super heavy or sweet.
So for the comparison of the two candle brands- Bath and Body works still wins for me. The Walmart ones do have a nice smell and will smell up the room, but not as heavily as B&BW. But hey, for $5 they are good for that price!
I hope you all enjoyed my candle haul, and don't forgot to check out Pilar's post as well!
What is your favorite Fall candle scent? Let me know in the comments!
This post is making me hungry! lolReplyDelete
I have Marshmallow Fireside and love it! Its almost gone so I definitely need to pick up a couple more.
Haha I know, I always want to eat sweets and cookies and stuff when I get candles that smell like them!!Delete
I must be the ONLY person who doesn't buy candles from B&BW! Haha! I am a consultant with Gold Canyon so I buy from them. Before then I used to buy from B&BW and I had a few favorites, but they just don't last that long. I don't know if maybe they have changed since then. However, I must smell Marshmallow Fireside, everyone raves about that one!ReplyDelete
Marshmallow fireside is amazing! And I haven't heard of Gold Canyon before! I'll have to check it out!!Delete
I cannot believe how similar those Walmart candles look to BBW! Pumpkin Waffles sounds delish! This was such a fun collab with you and Pilar :) <3ReplyDelete
I know I couldn't believe it either! I was surprised! And the pumpkin Waffels is amazing!Delete
It takes me forever to burn through my candles, so I haven't gotten any yet. These all sound so great. I love candles that have food scents! Brown Sugar Allspice sounds perfect!ReplyDelete
I love food scented candles too!! And the borwn sugar one is amazing!Delete
I've never bought anything from B&BW, went into the store once and holy, they are not the cheapest, eh? I have been nuts about candles too and I'll look out for the Walmart ones because I do love the 3 wicks candles, they burn so much nicer.ReplyDelete

They are expensive, I have to agree with you! I never buy anything unless it's on sale. And I only buy candles and soaps! I don't care for their other stuff much!Delete
Your candles sounds like they smell so nice! I looked for Autumn and Marshmallow Fireside, but my local BABW sold out of those candles. I was lucky BABW had some of the candles I selected! I want also want to try that Caramel Apple candle from Walmart! This was such a fun collaboration Ashley! I would love to do a Holiday/Christmas collab as well! That's a good idea you mentioned! I remember last year we had some of the same candles! Great post!ReplyDelete
Thanks Pilar! And we did get a lot of he same candles last year! For sure look for th Carmel apple one at Walmart! They had 4 different scents but I can't remember which of the other two there were!Delete
Ashley, I went crazy at BBW when they came out with all these fabulous scents. You got the best ones! I purchased 2 ONLY because I'm getting remodeling done and that's all I can use right now. I love the way they smell.ReplyDelete
I love all the scents too!! I really only meant to get two of them like you did lol!!Delete
