Bath & Body Works is known for its iconic scented candles. Yes, they do have other great products, such as hand and body soaps, shower gel, lotions, and additional accessories.
However, their scented candles are always at the top of anyone’s list. If you are searching for the right scented candles for this season, whether it is for these cozy fall evenings or dinner nights, Thanksgiving gatherings, or just enjoying a pleasant ambiance, Bath & Body Works has the perfect candle for your occasion.
These are my forever top five Bath & Body Works Fall candles I recommend with my eyes closed. You should try to at least have one from the list and incorporate it into your fall spirit season!
- White Pumpkin
Notes: Ginger White Pumpkin, Caramel Glaze, and Warm Blended Spices
This is one of my absolute favorites. The scent is strong, though the cinnamon clove stands out more than the pumpkin. Even so, it can definitely be classified as an autumn scent because of the blend of spices it contains. It’s warm, strong and perfect for the kitchen or living room.
2. Vanilla Pumpkin Marshmallow
Notes: Tahitian Vanilla, Pumpkin Spice, Homemade Marshmallow, and Drizzled Caramel
I have this thing for marshmallow candles, and the combination with pumpkin caught my attention. Surprisingly, it smells really good! However, the vanilla and marshmallow notes stand out more than the pumpkin, making the scent very soft and warm. It’s very nice for October and November, considering that the blends of vanilla, marshmallows, and caramel tones set the tone for a nice, comfy setting.
3. Marshmallow Fireside
Notes: Toasted Marshmallow, Smoldering Woods, Fire Roasted Vanilla, and Crystallized Amber
Marshmallow Fireside is a type of candle for actually any season. It is also great for a cozy night, movie session, or even a date. The scent of wood just evokes this warm, pleasant environment. The fireside scent is not harsh; but rather, it is softer and sweet. It is simply perfect for those warm and relaxing nights.
4. Pumpkin Pecan Waffles
Notes: Maple Syrup, Golden Waffles, Pumpkin Spice, and Brown Sugar
This is a must-have. Every time I light up this candle, I want to eat it! As soon as you pop open the lid, you’ll notice the scrumptious blend of pumpkin pecan waffles, bread, and maple syrup that emanates from it and takes over your senses. I’m talking about bakery scents here: delicious, nutty, brown sugar that create a soft and comforting environment. I know it may sound tempting, but remember not to eat it, though!
5. Pumpkin Spice Latte
Notes: Pumpkin Pie Spice, Freshly Brewed Espresso, Homemade Whipped Cream, and a Sprinkling of Cinnamon Sugar with Natural Essential Oils
If you are a coffee lover, you need to have this candle! The pumpkin and coffee combination bring a soft and sugary scent. The cinnamon balances the espresso smell along with the other spices. This candle is absolutely perfect for mornings while brewing your coffee, having breakfast, or brunch.
Fall candles are my favorite. They have all these nice elements I love in a scent… bread, nutty, cinnamon, maple syrup, cake, marshmallow, pancakes, waffles, pumpkin, and basically any smell you can find in a bakery. All of these scents play an essential role in creation a feeling of warmth and coziness to your room, thus setting a perfect-for-Fall ambiance.
