I’m a sucker for anything that smells fantastic and I’ve burnt my fair share of candles throughout my lifetime.
I used to love Yankee candles until one that was sitting on the coffee table exploded while burning. I’ve tried Woodwick every now and then but I swear that the wick and wax dissipate quicker than any other brand.
The best candles I’ve found come from Bath and Body Works. They have some amazing options made by The White Barn Candle Company and I love the candles from their Home collection as well.
Here’s my top 5 Bath & Body Works candles:
It’s safe to say that You Had Me at Merlot by Bath & Body Works and Black Cherry Merlot by the White Barn Candle Company take the cake as my favorites. Not only do these two candles burn slow and melt evenly, but both emit an aroma blend of dark cherries and raspberries accompanied by flowery earth tones; like you’re sipping a glass of deep red Merlot through your senses. Even after blowing it out, a hint of fragranced wine will be floating through the air.
I’m very keen on this candle and not just because of the cute label! This Bath & Body Works Home candle is made with Eucalyptus & Orange Essential Oils. It gives off that clean, subtle and delicate flowery fruit fragrance. Since it is a lighter scent, it is not as noticeable as the Merlot candles but it does enliven the senses to that sweet, tangy and luscious flavor of Pomegranate.
If you’re looking for a fall-scented candle for this time of year this Bath & Body Works Home candle would be my top pick for you! This candle really brings all of the flavors of fall together like juicy red apples, fig & eucalyptus leaves and that piney-outdoorsy scent. Close your eyes and you’ll feel as if you’re laying on a bed of leaves in the middle of an evergreen forest on a crisp autumn day.
The light and airyness of this Bath & Body Works Home candle is comparable to the Pomegranate, although the smells definitely differ. Made with Patchouli Essential Oils, the Incense candle has a peppery aroma while also sweetly smelling of earthy greenery.
There are some people who don’t like the smell of incense but I personally adore that aroma. The Incense candle definitely gives off that 70s hippie, laying in the grass at Woodstock, type of sense.
