I have been slowly but surely collecting items from Bath & Body Works that revolve around winter and Christmas.
I figured I'd show them all in one haul instead of multiple little hauls because I said so. ;)
Bath & Body Works has changed their bottles. AGAIN. Good lord, these people change packaging every freakin' season it seems! Their lotion, which I've never really liked, is now filled with 2X the shea, 2X the moisturizer, and 2x the lasting power...I don't buy it, but whatevs. I don't know if these bottles are smaller as far as the amount that they hold, but they look shorter and fatter.
White Barn's Nutmeg & Spice No. 1 (link is for 4 oz. candle) is not a new candle, it was definitely around last year. The notes I get from this are nutmeg for sure, vanilla sweetness, and some sort of caramel. Something about it is too caramelly for us, though. When I smelled it in the store, it smelled different, much less caramel, much more spice. When I got it in my package, it's the opposite. I'm willing to see how it differs, of course!
'Tis the Season is fresh apples, pine, and hints of cinnamon. I just love this scent, it's so Christmas to me. And again....that label.... ;)
Spiced Apple Toddy last year for a Christmas gift and we fell in love with it. It's the best apple cider/apple drink scent Bath & Body Works has made, in my opinion. The other are lacking what this candle seems to have...maybe it's the plum note in this, but it's just fantastic. Last year, it burned like a charm each and every time I used it, which was A LOT. I'm hoping this year's version will produce similar results. I think this candle is in a new drink line, thus the fancy-pants label, which I love.
Champagne Toast is the closest thing to that scent I've smelled in candle form. BOY, is this bubbly! I love it, it's really nice! I am going to use thus from late December - February, because I have a feeling it will last a long while. The notes in this candle are champagne and bubbles, some sort of citrus, and maybe another deeper fruit. I get a lot of that citrus note intermingled with the champagne. Hope this one burns!
And those are my Bath & Body Works hauls from late October through November 2013! I didn't partake in the Black Friday sales because I am an idiot. I should have bought Vanilla Bean Noel, a newly discovered love of mine, when I had the chance. Oh well, there's always after Christmas! Have you boguht anything from B&BW lately? Let me know!
