Bath and Body Works Candle Review: Winter 2015

Hello Everyone! 


 

I realized that I never review any candles. I used to collect candles, but for some reason I stopped until lately when I found my love for candles again.


Bath and Body Works 


Merry Cookie



This is my favorite candle! Honestly I feel happy when burn this candle because it smells so good! On cold sniff the candle smells very strong, a powerful scent of vanilla butter cookies. When lit the throw smells amazing! The scent fills the room quickly and it smells like I'm baking a cake or cookies. 



Frosted  Cranberry 


 

My second favorite candle! On cold sniff, I primarily smell a sugary cranberry peach scent. When lit the throw is pretty strong, and I can smell more of the sugary peach scent. This candle also fills the room quickly. 


Vanilla Bean Noel


 
I get so frustrated with this candle sometimes! On cold sniff, the candle has a wonderful cocoa, vanilla, and caramel scent. The candles almost reminds me of Palmer's Cocoa Butter lol. When lit, the throw is weak. I think this candle is best used in a smaller room because I can smell the throw better. I also noticed that when burns about midway, I smell the throw better. If you burn this candle In a larger room, you probably may want to burn more than one of these candles. This candle has so much potential to be great if the throw was stronger.


Cinnamon Frosting 


 

I thought this candle would smell sweeter than it does, but it has a nice scent. On cold sniff and while lit, this candle reminds me of Quaker Apple and Cinnamon Oatmeal. The throw is really strong, and I like to burn this candle in the kitchen on bitter cold days.



Here's a bonus candle review: Yankee Candle 

Christmas Cookie


 

This candle reminds me of Bath and Body Works Merry Cookie except the candle has a light buttery vanilla scent. When lit the throw is ok, but it isn't all that strong. I don't like the wick on this particular candle because it doesn't seem to burn all that well. 



What are your favorite scented candles? 


Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  2. This is such a great idea to do candle reviews! I hope you keep doing them!!! I totally never realized that the frosted cranberry has a peachy smell until you mentioned it!! Like I would smell it and couldn't figure out what it smelled like! I did like the cinnamon frosting one. Sometimes I like that the sweeter smells like that don't smell super strong because they can be too much sometimes! I burnt the vanilla bean one too much and now I'm not loving it anymore. I'm going to save the rest for next year haha!

    1. Thanks Ashley! I plan on writing more future candle reviews! I know what you mean about not realizing the peach scent in Frosted Cranberry. I smell the sugary scented peach scent more when I burn the candle. It smells so lovely! I agree some candles can be too sweet and in Cinnamon Frosting the candle has an equal balance of a sweet and spice scent. Lol I'm like that too, if I burn a scent constantly I kind of get tired of it!

  3. First of all, I must say you're doing a fantastic job at describing the scents, Pilar! I am completely hopeless at it. LOL! I am still finishing the Yankee Candle that I bought during Christmas time but will pick up a few from B&B once that runs out. Great review!

    1. Thanks Shireen! I try to describe scents to the best of my ability! I really like Bath and Body Works candles! Sure some are better than other in terms of the throw, but I've been pleased with their quality of candles for years! I hope you enjoy your new candles!

  4. Great review on the candles! I have a couple of Frosted Cranberry candles and they smell lovely! I can smell the peach once I burn the candles and I agree, the peach does smell sugary!
