"It's Bath & Body Works time!"
A couple of weeks ago I received a reply email from Bath & Body Works, stating that they would be happy to send me three mini scented candles (36 grams/1.3 oz each) from their Slatkin & Co. and White Barn collection...yippee!
Here in Australia, we don't have Bath & Body Works stores, which sucks!
All I want for Christmas this year is:
- Bath & Body Works to open their stores in Australia.
That's about it.
Anyway, The scents I received were:
- Salted Caramel (White Barn) – 'Indulge on an autumn day with a swoon-worthy mixture of farm - fresh sweet cream, salted caramel and warm vanilla.'
- Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin (Slatkin & Co.) – 'A fall harvest favorite inspired by delicious treats found at the farmers market - pumpkin pie, vanilla cream and spice.'
- Marshmallow Fireside (White Barn) – 'A sweet-toasty end to a long cold day - toasted marshmallows and sumptuous vanilla cream blend with the comforting aroma of rich smouldering woods.'
Salted Caramel (White Barn)
~ My favourite ~
Upon my first smell of this candle, the first thing that popped into my head was my all-time favourite drink, 'Salted caramel latte chiller' from Gloria Jeans (Australia's equivalent to Starbucks). Ironically, in my opinion, this candle smells absolutely delicious! When un-lit, it smells like pure sweet/salty caramel. Though when lit, the scent becomes richer and creamier. With a hint of vanilla. Love...love...LOVE!
Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin (Slatkin & Co.)
~ My Mum's favourite ~
This candle is simply special. With slight notes of spices - such as nutmeg, gives the cinnamon scent a boost. The pumpkin is somewhat unnoticeable when un-lit. Though when lit, the creaminess of the pumpkin is released...yummm! Perfect scent for the kitchen or dining area.
Marshmallow Fireside (White Barn)
~ My Dad's favourite ~
Marshmallows would have to be one of my favourite sweets. So this scent smells incredibly delicious, and makes me want to buy a kilo bag of marshmallows! On the surface, this candle is sweet, but not so sweet that it makes you ill. When lit, you uncover a smokey, woodsy note that cuts the marshmallow sweetness perfectly to create an intoxicating scent.

During the weeks before Christmas, Bath & Body Works are selling their mini candles for 2 for $5 ($3.50 each - normal price). What a steal!
So why not treat yourself this Christmas to some of these cute little candles. They smell delightful. Plus, they are super cheap. How could you possibly resist!
That's about all for today.
Stay tuned for more posts in the upcoming days before Christmas!
Stay pretty xx
