Review: Bath & Body Works Summertime S'mores 14.5 oz 3 Wick Candle

September is in full swing, folks!
Cue the "wake me up when September ends"
I can't say this has been a fun few weeks with this heat and humidity,
When I think of s'mores, I think of graham crackers, gooey chocolate, toasty marshmallows, a smoldering fire...everything wonderful about bonfires.
Summertime S'mores from Bath & Body Works is basically a more vanilla version of Marshmallow Fireside. In my opinion, Marshmallow Fireside is much heavier on the wood-burning fire element, and this is heavier on the sweetness. It's still fabulous, and has an amazing throw, too! You get the marshmallow for sure, and there is woodsiness, but it's not as prevelant as Marshmallow Fireside.
Unfortunately, this years Marshmallow Fireside smells more like Summertime S'mores, not really as burny as last year's version. Sad, but I still enjoy it.
The burn has been perfect each time it has been lit. The wax pools have been great, the wicks are study and get the job done for sure. Obviously, this was a summer scent, so the fall version is out now, but I would definitely repurchase this scent if it came out next year! Both of these versions are in my top 10 favorite B&BW candles. :)

Bath & Body Works Summertime S'mores 14.5 oz 3 Wick Candle
Cold Rating: 7/10; individual elements are smelled on cold sniff, but it's mostly marshmallow sweetness, and I like it!
Lit Rating: 8.5/10; this smells absolutely wonderful. I wish it had more of that smokiness, but it's good.
Throw Rating9/10; very, very strong throw, travels throughout the house each time it is lit.
Overall Rating8/10; a nice dupe for Marshmallow Fireside. Bonfires. Summer winding down. Green Day jokes. October brings joy and sadness. I need a s'more now.


  1. I was surprised at how much I like this one. It's so comforting! The label is cool, too.

    1. I'm glad you like it! The labeling is really awesome on this one, totally agreed!

  2. I've never really tried any of the s'mores type scents or the fireside scents, but this morning saw that my Walmart finally has the Glade Toasted Marshmallow candle in stock and dang that smells yummy. I might have to consider giving these types of scents a chance!


    1. Ooooooh!! You should definitely give it a chance! :D

  3. I have to dig through my candles and find this one! I loved Marsh. Fireside so this should be a hit for me.

    1. Try this one! I haven't been other melting candles lately because of the heat, but this one seems appropriate for summer!

  4. I was wondering about this one: I assumed it was just a repackaged Fireside Marshmallow (which I thought is too smoky!). I guess I should have given it a sniff....and I'll check this year's FM. :)
