Top 5 Holiday Candles

Posted in Lifestyle
on November 14, 2016



For those who don’t know, I love everything related to the holiday season, which also includes all the amazing seasonal candles from Bath and Body Works. So naturally around this time of year, I take advantage of the November deals for candles, and make sure to make a decent online purchase for the holidays. While I’m waiting for my package, I wanted to share my favorite candles for the holiday season.

1| Winter

When you read that there are clementines in this candle, you’re probably going to think it won’t be a good mix. But I promise that the this candle smells of everything Christmas that you will love. I personally love the notes of white woods and pine needles.

2| Fresh Balsam

The smell of this candle reminds me so much of being at the spa, which is perfect for a time of year that can be a little stressful with all the to-do lists for the holidays. Notes of balsam, cedarwood and eucalyptus blend together to create a winter, spa-like aroma in your home.

3| Marshmallow Fireside

This is personally my favorite candle from Bath and Body Works from their holiday collection, and it has been for quite some time. I’m a person who loved marshmallow, and the combination of it with vanilla and amber notes brings together a perfect scent for winter.

4| Frosted Cranberry

If you’re more into the sweeter scents are the holidays, I would definitely recommend Frosted Cranberry. This candle is straight-forward with notes of cranberry and apple notes. However, it isn’t too sweet of a scent with two fruits in the blend.

5| Spiced Gingerbread

I was first worried about this candle (which I don’t remember from last year) because I thought it would be too strong with nutmeg and cinnamon scents. But I am so happy to say that the vanilla notes makes the candle much more appealing and a little less overwhelming to smell. Trust me, you’ll want to pick this scent up for the holiday season!
