Obsession of the Week

Bath and Body Works candles... how I love you so!
I stepped into the store to kill some time and smell some of their new candles with no intent of purchasing. I ended up walking out with two 3-wick-candles. They were 2 for $20! Half off! I couldn't resist... And I've been really impressed with their tiny 1.6oz sizes. They can scent up my entire room. So... I took the plunge and purchased my first full-sized BBW (14.5 oz) candles. I'm obsessed!

Tiki Beach was what made me fall in the first place. I didn't think much of it at first because of its un-festive-like tan color, but I swooned when my olfactory glands were introduced to this scent.
"Warm as coconut groves and white sand beaches, a delicious blend of toasted coconut, vanilla musk, and tropical island orchids."
Doesn't that sound divine?!????? I don't know if I can give a better description than above, but just think of laying out on the beach with your favorite coconut scented sunblock and pina colada in hand. Have I ever done that? Not really. hahaha! But who needs to when you have this candle? I promise you will feel like you're lounging on the beach with no other worries. Whenever its lit, I feel like I'm back in Cancun with my best friends. The candle has such a warm coconut scent, but with some floral accents. I can't get enough of it!!!!! I was about to walk out with TWO of these candles for $20 until I came across...

Blackberry Grapefruit. 
"Fresh from the orchard, a luscious blend of sun-ripened blackberries and juicy grapefruit with a touch of creamy sandalwood." 
This candle is seriously intoxicating. It's like blackberry pie at a fair meets the woods meets grapefruit. Who would ever think to put these scents together? This candle has been burning nonstop and is getting me in the mood for spring! I feel like I could be prancing around in an orchard one minute and then pulling up to the Orange County Fair the next. I really really love this candle!

I wish there was a scratch-and-sniff option through the internet! I don't know how else to explain these candles other than the fact that they're amazing. I don't regret my impulsive purchase one bit. I really hope you have the opportunity to stop by a Bath and Body Works and smell some of their Spring candles and take advantage of the 2 for $20 deal! Some other scents that were appealing were Mango Cilantro, Market Peach, White Palm, Green Grass, Frosted Cupcake, and Sage Cucumber. I'm kind of tempted to get Mango Cilantro and Sage Cucumber next!

Do you own any of the Spring scents? What are your favorite scents in a candle?


  1. I love your picks! Toasted Coconut, Vanilla Musk and Orchids? Blackberries and Grapefruit? I know I just repeated what you wrote, but it just sounds delicious. I do wish there was a scratch and sniff :)

  2. I don't own any of the spring scents, but they sound amazing. Thank you for showing.
    I love rose and lilly of the valley scents in (vernally) candles.
