Holiday Candles. B&W

Sunday, 10 December 2017

I just love B&W too much not to buy some new candles for the holidays. These were the ones I picked out after smelling them in the store. I haven't tested the throw of most of these yet but i'm hoping they will be great. The candles I have are Campfire Donut, Hot Coco & Cream, Salted Caramel and Pomelo and Pine, which are the more holiday scents. I also bought Black Cherry Merlot,  Blueberry Swirl and Sparkling peach which isn't really Christmas smells to me but are lovely all the same. 

Campfire Donut :

Notes : Powdered Sugar, Glazed Donut, and Cedarwood Essential Oil.

I never really heard of a campfire donut before if i'm being honest. I guess they just wanted to mix it up. It smells like something baking which is really good. I looked up the reviews on the bath and body works site and someone mentioned that it smelled great but when lit, it had no throw. I have to disagree with that because I lit mine for 5 minutes (It's currently burning) and it is all I could smell. Maybe it's because i'm in the same room with it. But if I can smell it after 5 minutes, then it's definitely making it's way around the rest of my home. All I can say is, Yum yum!!  

 Hot Cocoa & Cream :

Notes : Milk Chocolate, Steamed Milk, and Nutmeg Essential Oil.

Oh my god, this one literally smells like hot cocoa. It's so good. There's definitely a creamy smell there as well. I haven't lit this one yet so I am hoping the throw is just as amazing. I just want to drink it up. 

Pomelo & Pine

Notes : White Pomelo, Juicy Mandarin, Balsam, Cinnamon Bark.

We haven't had a real Christmas tree since I was probably 9 or 10 years old. It's always been an artificial tree ever since. But my dad would alway put fir into the furnace to put the smell of a real Christmas tree through the house. He does it every year. I don't have a Christmas tree in my apartment but I wanted it to smell like Christmas since I won't be back home until the day before Christmas Eve. Obviously this is a different smell then what my dad creates. I thought about getting the Fresh Balsam Candle but everyone I went into the store with didn't like the smell. So, I decided to get this one which still smells like Christmas but isn't too strong. It's subtle and smells amazing. I wasn't sure how the throw was a first or if it was even strong enough until I left the living room and went into another room, when I came back out, yep I could smell it in the hallway. The throw isn't super strong but just enough in my opinion. Obviously it would be stronger the longer it's going. I really like this one.

Salted Caramel :

Notes : 

I shared this one with you guys last year in my "What I got for Christmas" Post. The packaging of it was so nice as well. I just went with the simple white barn version this time because I decided to get this one for my dad. He really loves those sweet smells so I figured he might appreciate this one. If you love sweet smells, I'd definitely recommend this one. So, so good, and the throw is great as well!  

Golden Peach Sparkle :

Notes : Juicy Peaches, Sparking Bergamot, Apricot.

I haven't even tried this one out yet but it's more of a fruity smell. It literally smells like peaches and it's really nice. I feel like this could be a good one for all year round. Also, I love the packaging, Definitely makes it look more festive, I guess.  

Blueberry Sugar

Notes: Sweet Blueberries, Brown Sugar, Graham Cracker Crust.

Another one that I haven't tested out yet, but omg it smells incredible. I have a feeling the throw is going to be so good as well. You don't even have to lift the lid to smell it. When I opened the bag it was in, I smelled it instantly before even taking it out and pulling it off the lid. It's that powerful but not sickening. It smells like blueberries or blueberry cheesecake. I am so in love with it. You need to go and get it, or at least go the the store and smell it. Trust me!! 

Black Cherry Merlot :

Notes : Dark Cherry, Black Raspberry, Sumptuous Merlot. 

Another fruity smelling one. It smells like grape juice to me. It's really great. If you like those fruit smells I'd recommend this one. 

What candles have you been burning lately?
