CALLING ALL CANDLE LOVERS…
Two words consistently used to describe the Bath & Body Works fall candle line: crisp and warm. Other words that come to mind: cozy, sweet, spicy, PUMPKIN-Y. If any of these words appeal to you and your infinity scarf-wrapped soul, then you are in the right place. Before you is a list you once thought impossible – a list you’ve probably attempted to devise in your head, only to give up in frustration and hug your fall candle collection tightly. This is the list of the top 10 candles of the Bath & Body Works Fall Signatures. From the delicious aroma of waffles and syrup to the enticing scent of a hot boy’s flannel, this is the best of the best.
1. Pumpkin Apple
I wholeheartedly believe that Pumpkin Apple is the perfect fall scent. It evokes childhood memories of comfort, of coming in from playing in the leaves with rosy cheeks and dirty jeans. It contains the perfect amount of spice and a subtle pumpkin-y (yes, I know this is not a word) note. I light this one in the evening to get that cozy, nostalgic feeling.
A true Autumn staple for any candle-lover. This scent strikes the perfect balance between spicy and crisp. It combines notes of red gala apple, juicy fig, eucalyptus leaf, and fir balsam to put you in that Fall mood.
3. Harvest Gathering
Great in either candle or Wall-flower form, this scent is made up of all your fall memories of apple-picking. It’s central notes are fresh picked apples, Autumn berries, and clove buds.
4. Pumpkin Pecan Waffles
If you prefer sweet, foodie scents then this is perfect for you. Sweet without being too sickly, Pumpkin Pecan Waffles is my favorite candle to light if I need a midday pick-me-up.
5. Marshmallow Fireside
Fall is the ultimate time for bonfires, and with this scent, you can bring the warm, smoky aroma of one inside. Light up this baby while you cuddle up on the sofa for a Halloween movie marathon (Hocus Pocus, anyone?) and breathe in the toasted marshmallow, smouldering woods, fire roasted vanilla and crystallized amber scents that make up Marshmallow Fireside.
“Leaves” is both sweet and spicy, just like you! It will warm you up on those chilly fall mornings with it’s hints of red apple, golden nectar, and warm clove spice.
Ah yes, every teenage girl’s favourite fall scent. It smells like every boy sweater that you’ve ever stolen, only to find that one day it no longer retains its musky, boy scent. Surprise! Now you can smell that scent whenever you want it, fuck-boy free.
8. Caramel Pumpkin Swirl
Want your house to smell like freshly baked goodness? That’s what Caramel Pumpkin Swirl is here for! With its notes of pumpkin (obviously), warm caramel, cinnamon, and vanilla bean, you will literally want to eat the goddamn air.
9. Sweater Weather
Fresh sage, juniper berry, eucalyptus, and fresh woods are the smells that make up Sweater Weather. This scent is crisp, fresh and delightfully refreshing.
10. Crisp Morning Air
This one will get you up in the morning. The scent equivalent of a morning walk in October. An infusion of crisp fall breeze (how’d they bottle that?), white oak, golden amber wood, saffron and soft sandal wood will leave you feeling as red-cheeked and fresh as if you’ve just had an early Autumn stroll.
And there you have it: your complete list of this season’s coziest, most delicious candle scents from Bath and Body Works. Your living space will never not smell like fall exploded everywhere. You’re welcome.
