Candle in the Wind with Bath & Body Works

I love candles; it's a little luxury that I always indulged myself with every now and then not only because it can miraculously lift up my mood instantly, it can also double up as a home deco accessories too. I started collecting and spending my money on them since the early days of my marriage, I just can't help but loving the vibes and the aura it brings every time I lit it up. My husband is a big fan as well, in fact he's the one who pick and choose some of the scents for me~ Yeap, that's exactly how he get in touch with his feminine side, who am I to judge, right? Sorry honey, your secret is out =D

A little thing about candles, it really helps when I went through my morning sickness episodes during the first trimester of my pregnancy. It works wonderfully to distinguish all the smells that I'm sensitive too like fried food, detergents, men's perfume and so much more... So yes, I highly recommend women who experiencing morning sickness to give your favourite candle a shot, who know it might works for you too, wink2 Back to the candle, I prefer Yankee Candles actually, I really like the glass jars it comes with but when I heard about the Valiram Group Warehouse Sales, I swear I almost had a meltdown!!! The salary is not in yet at that moment and I have just enough for a mini candle spree T_T

Bath & Body Works candles it is, I get a little over excited at first and grab all of the 10 available variants and then I noticed, most of them are from the past Holiday Tradition collection and smells about the same so I decided to get just 5. I took the White Barn Renew & Refresh, Moonlight Path and 3 other candles from the Holiday Tradition collection; Vanilla Bean Noel, Twisted Peppermint and Red Velvet Cupcake. I love all of them and spends quite a significant amount of time sniffing each and every candle whenever I want to. I know, it's kinda weird but sometimes, when I love something so much I'll restrain myself from using it and choose to enjoy looking at it or smelling it instead, lol

I guess we all can agree on how weird I am and since I haven't use any of these babies yet, it's very hard for me to review the candles in terms of the staying power or longevity... I can only give a brief first impression based on my not-so-sharp sniffing ability so I'm so sorry in advance if this is not what you're looking for =_=  Okay, I totally forgot to mention about the price. I'm not really sure how much 3-wick candle retail for at Bath & Body Works outlet here in Malaysia, I heard from a friend of mine it's about RM100+/- each so if I'm wrong, please ignore this, hehe =P At the sales, I bought each candle for only RM45, kinda huge steal if you asked me @_@

Moonlight Path 3-Wick Candle
14.5 oz / 411g
★★★★☆

If you love the smells of fresh linen, this candle is definitely made with people like you in mind because the candle seems to have a soapy, powdery scent to me... Don't get me wrong, I don't hate it, I just don't think you should go for this if you're planning to try out new candle, it's too safe and boring in my book but this one might suit someone who have chaotic life, it kind of brings comfort and warmth to wrap yourself with :) 

Twisted Peppermint 3-Wick Candle
14.5 oz / 411g
★★★★★

Twisted Peppermint without a doubt is my favourite among them all, it screams christmas with the candy cane like fragrance and will make you feels so relax and very much at home immediately!!! I heard that it's a hit worldwide too probably due to the holiday moods, you can picture kids sitting next to fireplace listening to their parents or reminiscing your childhood moment when you smell this candle, all thanks to the peppermint scent you can trace in it, I heart this very2 much ^_^

Vanilla Bean Noel 3-Wick Candle
14.5 oz / 411g
★★★★★

My obsession with vanilla is not really a secret and obviously one of the reason why I choose this candle. Although the vanilla scent in it isn't really pronounce, it gave the soft, delightful feeling that's not too overwhelming and perfect for the holiday gathering... If you're a big fan of vanilla just like me, you might want to look for other vanilla candle that Bath & Body Works have such as Lavender Vanilla or Vanilla Snowflake, I'm so looking forward to purchase those two too ❤   

Red Velvet Cupcake 3-Wick Candle
14.5 oz / 411g
★★★★☆

I think this one is easily a favourite among dessert lovers because it smells exactly like the cupcakes dough!!! It's not only calorie free, it smells deliciously yummy too, I feels like eating it whenever I sniff it, haha =D I haven't seen this in Bath & Body Works latest Holiday Tradition collection so my guess is, they leave it behind this time around... It's probably due to the availability of similar candle fragrance in the collection so don't worry too much if you can't find this anymore~

White Barn - Renew & Refresh 3-Wick Candle
14.5 oz / 411g
★★★★★

Last but not least is the White Barn - Renew & Refresh candle. It's the only one I purchased that didn't come with a lid but they did provide a dust cover on top of the candle. I love the smells, I personally think it have a lush, luxurious fragrance I normally find in 5 stars hotels... The other thing that I like about this candle is the blue jar it comes with, it's so pretty and exclusive, you should totally grab this candle if you want to impress somebody like your friends and colleague or maybe your in-laws, wink2


I vlog about my Bath & Body Works candle haul here as well if you don't feel like reading my lengthy post =P I hope I did help giving you lovelies a little idea about each and every scent of the candles I bought and I'm very curious about your candle preference too if you don't mind sharing...
