Fall is just around the corner and Bath and Body Works have come out with their Fall candles! The fall and winter candles are my favorites each year. The sweet scents make me want to curl up with a cup of tea and a book, while burning a candle of course! Over labor day they had a 2 for $22 sale, and the sale is back on now through September 22nd so I thought I would do a haul post about the candles I picked up.
1. The first candle I picked up was Cider Lane.
The description says “As sweet as the trip to the local apple orchard each year, a delicious fall blend of mulled cider, warm caramel, and sweet cinnamon.” It smells sweet without being overpowering and has a hint of apple. I’ve smelled a lot of the apple scented candles, and I usually like the way they smell, but they can bee a bit more apple-y than I want my room to smell. This one is a nice balance of sweet and apple.
2. The second candle I got is Leaves.
The description reads “Celebrate the brilliant colors of autmn with this rich blend of golden nectar, red apple, and spiced berries.” Every year I see a lot of Beauty vloggers rave about this candle, and every year I go into Bath and Body Works, smell it, and don’t really understand why they love it. But, something changed this year. I actually really liked it! I’m not sure if they’ve changed the scent or if my preferences in scents have changed since last year, but I’m really loving it!
3. The Last Candle is Applewood Bonfire and the description says “Warm up to the cozy scent of an autumn bonfire – apples, crackling barks, and fresh cut wood.”
It’s really nice, a bit smokey without being too strong. I find that some of the other scents that have fire in the name are a bit too much for me, but this one was just right!
Bath and Body Works also has a few coupons online right now in addition to the 2 for $22 3-wick candle sale. They have a $1 shipping if you spend at least $25, code “SHIPNOW25.” Also, if you order and use Ebates, you can get 2% cash back . Ebates also has a 20% off coupon in addition to the 2% cash back. You just scroll down on the Bath and Body Works Ebates page and then click the shop now link from that coupon. It’s good until October 13th too! You can unfortunately only use one coupon code at a time on the Bath and Body Works site, but you can combine a coupon with the 2 for $22 deal! You will have to choose if you want $1 shipping or 20% off though. Make sure you check which one will save you more!
I would definitely repurchase and recommend these candles. I’m thinking of buying a backup of them during this sale! While a lot of the same scents come back from year to year, some of my favorites haven’t. So if you really love a candle and it’s seasonal, you may want to consider picking up an extra. I absolutely loved the Creamy Pumpkin candle and they had it last year (2012) and the year before, but this year I haven’t seen it. Also in winter 2011, I tried one of the winter candles called Marshmallow Peppermint, and it was amazing, but they didn’t have it last winter. There are definitely scents that are similar to both of these, but if you absolutely love one of the candles, don’t assume they will have it every year.
Do you plan on picking up any candles during the sale? What’s your favorite fall scent? Let me know in the comments!
