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!
