Bath & Body Works Haul

Bath and body works haul

It’s no secret that I have a SLIGHT obsession with candles, and Bath & Body Works is by far my favorite place to shop for them. Few days a go they had their 2 for $22.00 sale online and I stocked up on some of my favorites.

palm leaves candle

Palm Leaves is a new one for me. I was intrigued by the green, frosted sea-glass jar and as soon as I took a whiff of it at the store, I thought that the scent was pleasantly familiar. Then my sister pointed out that it smells just like Juicy Couture perfume and she was spot on. It’s such an original scent, a gorgeous mix of green palm, aloe and agave. I loved this scent so much that I bought two of these. I am burning one at the moment in my living room, and I have to say that the throw isn’t as great as with my other favorite candles from Bath & Body Works, but it’s still strong enough to fill up a small room with the scent.

Owl candle bath and body works

You guys know how much I love my owls. When I saw this adorable Owl Ceramic Filled Candle, I knew I had to get it. The candle is “leaves” and it’s one of my favorites to burn during late Summer/early Fall. Plus, it was on sale for only eight bucks!

Mahogany Teakwood candle

Mahogany Teakwood is a top rated candle on Bathandbodyworks.com and is also probably my favorite fragrance. Mahogany Teakwood smells just like cologne, it’s woody, deep, strong and absolutely divine and I can’t help but think that it smells exactly like the inside of an Abecrombie & Fitch store. This candle is a warm and snuggly concoction of mahogany, cedarwood and oak, highlighted by delicate lavender and geranium notes.

bath and body works stress relief candle

I love anything with eucalyptus, from bath soaks to lotions, this candle being no exception. Stress Relief, part of the aromatherapy collection, is eucalyptus and spearmint scented candle and it has a very clean, fresh and calming fragrance, I love burning this one while taking a bath. It’s a best selling candle for a reason, it has an amazing throw without being too strong or overpowering. Before I tried  this candle, I wasn’t convinced that smells can be relaxing, but I feel that this one truly does help relieve stress. The eucalyptus is definitely the dominant fragrance in this one, with slight and soothing under-notes of spearmint. I bought two of these as well :D .

Bath and Body Works Leaves Candle

Even though my little Owl candle is in the “Leaves” scent, I wanted to get the same one in the original, 3-wick version as well. A rich blend of golden nectar, red apple and spiced berries, sounds divine, doesn’t it? Even though everyone keeps saying that the Summer is quickly coming to an end, I think that it’s pretty much in full-swing. Yesterday was probably one of the hottest days of this year, it was really unbearable, but I won’t complain, I’m still hoping to catch some rays! With that being said, I sort of can’t wait for Fall to arrive even if it’s just so I can burn this candle! ;) It always brings back all the cozy and comfy memories and is just a very “homey” scent.

Lavender & Vanilla wallflowers

I also bought two 2-packs of wallflower refills. I went with Eucalyptus and Spearmint (since I love it so much!) and Lavender and Vanilla. I usually don’t like Lavender fragrances, but the addition of the vanilla notes really makes it a lovely combo. It’s a blend of lavender and creamy vanilla, with touches of cedarwood, delicate jasmine and citrus.

Eucalyptus mint wallflower

These wallflowers really work great and last a bit longer than the plug-ins that I sometimes buy at a supermarket. I once bought these in my beloved Mahogany Teakwood and the smell was gorgeous at first, but after a few days it started smelling bad and gave me a horrible headache. That turned me off a little and I avoided the wallflowers for a while, but I gave in once again and they work great. I probably won’t buy them in Mohagany Teakwood again, but the Eucalyptus Mint and Lavender & Vanilla are lovely!

Do you guys love Bath & Body Works candles as much as I do? What’s your favorite scent?

  • Ahhh what a gorgeous late summer/early Autumnal haul Paula! You found such perfect picks! Bath & Body Works just looks like the go-to candle store, so many lovely buys :) How pretty is Palm Leaves? Just adorable :D The design is so gorgeous, really rare and unique! The scent of green palm just sounds beautiful and you know me and my obsession with anything LA related ;) I remember reading your post where you talked about owls (brings back happy memories of first discovering your blog) and I always thought this was the cutest thing for you, especially as you love anything owl themed :D

    I literally sucked in a breath when I saw the beautiful Leaves candle design! SO, so SO pretty! Absolutely stunning! Definitely don’t blame you for wanting to buy it! ;) It does sound divine and I can imagine it to be oh so homey like you say :) Stress Relief sounds like an absolute find, I love that you find it really does help de-stress and relax, so comforting to know a candle like that can do so much :D Mahogany Teakwood again has such a beautiful design, such a beauty! I love that it reminds you of the smell of Abercrombie & Fitch; at least this candle brings lots of gorgeous light instead of blasting nothing but darkness :P Perhaps this candle should be introduced to A&F in a “let there be light” campaign haha!! ;) :D

    • It definitely is a go-to place for candles :D Awww hahaha yes I do love my owls! <3

      LOL that is so true about the A&F stores, not only the darkness, but also the music! It's always so freaking loud whenever I go there! Yet another reason I stick to online shopping :D

  • Awwww adorable owl! Great haul! x

    • Thank you Gabby ;)

  • I love Bath and Body! Living on a farm in the middle of no where (this is pretty much where I live) it can be hard to do much shopping. My sister and I are going into one of the largest cities in our state next week. We have a big shopping trip planned and Bath and Body is on the list!
    I love that owl candle. I have a huge collection of owl things (jewelry, owl printed tops, owl coin purses, etc). Owls are just so adorable. I also feel like I definitely need that stress relief candle too.

    Jessica

    • Aww that’s too bad!! I bet that there are a lot advantages to living on a farm “in the middle of no where” though! I sooo want to buy a house on a farm one day :)

      I also have almost a whole entire room filled with owl-y things hehe :) Hope that you and your sister have a great time! Definitely try the stress relief candle, it’s amazing!

  • Jessica

    Dang! I can’t believe I missed this sale, you got some awesome stuff! I love that little owl, I definitely need one of those in my life, like, right now.

    Great post, I can’t wait to smell that mahogany teakwood candle the next time I’m at Bath and Body Works!

  • I literally squee’d when I saw Mahogany Teakwood! It’s easily my favorite candle out of any of theirs.. if they bring it around next year, Ocean Driftwood was similar, but even better for summer because it was just a tad bit lighter.. if that makes sense? Loved this post xo

    • Thanks so much Kira! <3 I love that candle too, it's definitely one of my favorites. If I were to only pick one candle from BBW, it'd definitely would be it! ;)

  • Yes yes yes! I loooove Bath & Body Works. I stopped in there the other day and smelled all of the candles…so good! I didn’t buy any though. I have no idea why! I really should have! :) You’ve made me want some now! They really do have the best scented candles. The ‘Leaves’ scent sounds lovely. <3 And that owl is just too cute!

    • Oh yes, they’re candles are amazing! So concentrated and always smell amazing, plus I love keeping the jars after the candles are done. :) hehe the owl is pretty cute, isn’t it :D

  • Aww these products are amazing! I love the smelled candles! In fact my flat is full of flavors.

  • I LOVE the sound of B&BW but have sadly never been to one. Having not opened a store in London, there has not been an opportunity for me to go and oh gosh, do I wish I can! The candles you have chosen seem wonderful and I love the idea of the lavender & vanilla wallflower!

    Oh, and the amount of times I’ve heard the words ‘leaves’, ‘candle’, and ‘favourite’ in the same sentence over the years has been uncountable! haha!
    In love with the things you have bought! <3

    • OOhh that’s too bad, because their candles are amazing! Thanks so much Puja! <3

  • The eucalyptus and spearmint sounds lovely – I just love anything minty and fresh and I would love something like this for my flat, it would certainly be nice in the evening when I’m relaxing on the sofa with a good book. I definitely need to get some more scented candles in my life.

    • I do too! Minty fragrances are just so refreshing and energizing. :)

  • great haul! i wish there was a bath and body works in croatia :(

  • Kate

    Ah these look amazing! I wish I could get these in the UK… I just love scented candles. X

    I got hooked to BBW when I moved to the US. I love their hauls and I stock up on those candles and wallflowers like crazy. At the moment I have Eucalyptus mint (probably the freshest and my favorite), Wakiki Coconut (next favorite), Freshly cut lilacs, Coconut leaves ( I love anything beachy) and blushing rose petals, which isn’t very impressive but workable.
