Bath & Body Works Holiday Candle Haul | Collab

Hello! I'm sure by now you all know that I have an obsession with candles. Every season I have to get new ones, but I always wait for a good sale at Bath and Body works! On Black Friday everything was buy 3 get 3 free and they sacked coupons, so I was in candle heaven.

I'm doing this post in Collaboration with Pilar from Beauty and More by Pilar ! We did a Fall candle haul together a few months ago, and we have some other fun Holiday Collabs planned too!! Don't forget to check out her blog to see such candles she got too!

I was super happy with all my choices this year! All of these smells so good, and props to my hubby for helping me pick them out!
Salted Caramel- a blend of buttery caramel, flakey sea salt, and a hint of roasted chestnuts. This is definitely one of my favorites that I picked out. It's very sweet scented but not overwhelming. If candles were edible, I would devour it.
Wish Christmas Spice- this one is by white barn and is described as cinnamon sticks, ground cloves, and nutmeg- a classic Christmas spice blend. This one smells very strong but I love cinnamon scents so it doesn't bother me that it's a powerful one. 
Winter Candy Apple- a blend of candied apples, spiced orange zest, and a touch of winter musk. This one is midly sweet and I don't smell any musk in it.


 Fresh Sparkling Snow- as you can see, this is already almost half gone. This one just might be my favorite (salted caramel is second!). This one is described as Icy pear, frozen melon, and frosted musk. This scent is a tiny bit fruity, and the musk is very minimal. It's such a great mixture. And I promise, it smells better than it sounds. I was actually surprised to read the fruit description in it! It's one of those scents that you can't quite describe or put your finger on what it smells like!
Cozy Cabin- a blend of frosted vinalla, sage, and golden glowing woods. You can smell a hint of vinalla in this and the woodsy scent is light. It's also a nice blend, is not very heavy. I get nervous when buying the woodsy scents because if they are too heavy (or smell to strongly like men's cologne) I get a headache. I'm happy to say this one doesn't do that!
Sweater Weather- an aromatic blend of eucalyptus, juniper berry, and fresh sage. This one also isn't too strong snd smells very fresh!

So this completes my winter/holiday candle haul! Don't forget to checkout Pilars post as well!

What is your favorite holiday candle scent?

  1. Oh man do I love BBW candles! I picked some up last Saturday. I missed the buy 3 get 3 free sale but got 5 for $12 each and had a $10 off coupon. I almost picked up salted caramel. My boyfriend got that one for his mother. I picked up Frosted Cranberry, Marshmallow Fireside, and Champagne Mimosa or something? Apple Toddy and Vanilla Bean as gifts.

  2. I actually sniffed some of these when I was in the city last weekend but somehow none appealed to me so I didn't pick up any. :-(

  4. Ugh, this makes me want to go to B&BW for some candles! I just finished my last one, so now I can go buy more without feeling guilt, haha. I might go for the salted caramel and something else if they have their 2/$20something deal :)

  6. Great choices Ashley! This collab was so much fun! I'm glad that someone else appreciates BABW candles as much as I do haha! wanted to check out Salted Caramel, but I didn't see any at my local BABW store! Does Christmas Spice smell anything like Cinnamon Frosting from last year's collection? I was kinda sad they didn't bring back Cinnamon Frosting because I really like that scent. I still have a some of that candle left though! My favorite candles right now are Frosted Cranberry and Merry Cookie!

    1. Thanks Pilar! We need to do a collab like this for every season LOL! I hope you can find salted caramel! And to me the cinnamon frosting one smelled a lot sweeter, and this cinnamon spice one smells like cinnamon sticks, and not a hint of sweet in like a frosting would. If you like cinnamon then you'd like this but it is very strong!

  9. I saw that amazing deal Ashley, but I was unable to burn my Thanksgiving ones so I still have those. But Salted Caramel is one of them and it smells amazing. Great haul!

  11. I love it when BBW has the candles on sale! I really want to get the Salted Caramel one. I've done a good job buring up some old ones, so I think it's time to restock!
