Bath & Body Works Fall Favorites

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful first week of September! While fall doesn't officially start until the 21st, I feel that the beginning of the month, the start of school and the release of Pumpkin Spice Lattes (I don't even drink them but I get excited! I'm a carmel macchiato gal) justifies the talk of fall! It's actually dreadfully hot here right now - warmer than it has been ALL SUMMER but that won't stop me - I thought today I would share with you all some of my favorite Bath & Body Works candle scents for fall. Nothing beats burning some candles, wrapping yourself in a cozy blanket, enjoying a hot drink and relaxing with a good book during this time of year!



So let's start off by saying that I caught a glimpse of the Sea Salt & Maple Popcorn candle on Instagram and was instantly intrigued. So intrigued that the next day after dinner out, I popped into a Bath & Body Works store JUST TO SMELL IT. I always like to wait until I can take advantage of a candle sale, so I didn't buy it just then but let me tell you, I was checking the Bath & Body website perhaps more than daily waiting for my chance! Now these aren't exclusively the only scents I enjoy during the fall, I have a few others from Bath & Body that are stockpiled in a cabinet that may or may not be entirely dedicated to their candles (there also may be a drawer for wallflowers and a drawer for soaps but I don't know who told you that!). However I'm fairly certain that most of these candles are new for this year so I figured it was a great time to share them with you!


We might as well start off with Sea Salt Maple Popcorn. I think the funniest thing is that I can't even eat popcorn really (it KILLS my teeth). However, the scent really gets me and generally suckers me into eating some if its around. The great thing about this candle is that I can enjoy the smell without the temptation. This isn't any ol' popcorn scent though - this is popcorn all grown up! The saltiness, the sweet from the maple and the popcorn combine to create an amazingly cozy and delicious scent. Seriously, popcorn lover or not - go smell this!! You may be surprised. I was! 



This is another scent that I was very intrigued by. I'm really loving the new food based scents that Bath and Body Works has been releasing. This Vanilla Chai is amazing!! Chai is one of my favorite teas and I love getting Chai tea lattes. So to be able to have this scent in candle form is perfect for me. The only downside is that burning it makes me really want to run to Starbucks for a Chai latte! 



This Pumpkin Cinnamon Bun candle is one I picked up on a complete whim, without smelling beforehand. While I do feel that it doesn't have the strongest scent that I would like, I do really enjoy it. I find that you can smell it better when you're in a different room than where it is burning. (unlike the sea salt maple popcorn which I can smell like CRAZY even when it isn't burning!) If this had a bit more cinnamon scent to it, it would be even better. All the same, it's definitely one of my favorites and may or may not have forced me to make some Immaculate Cinnamon Rolls a few times (if you haven't tried these - you MUST! They are the best!!). 



This is another candle that I purchased sight unsmelled (see what I did there?! ;)). This Pumpkin Pecan Waffle candle makes me instantly crave waffles which honestly, isn't even something I really enjoy to begin with. The scent of this one is sweet, without being too sweet (I generally don't go for overly sweet scents). It's a comfort scent for sure and perfect for those cooler fall mornings! 



Okay so I saved the best for last: Pumpkin Sugared Doughnut! I have heard/seen all the hype surrounding their regular sugared doughnut candle but never smelled it. I honestly figured it was a scent that I wouldn't like. However, I purchased this Pumpkin Sugared Doughnut on a complete whim and I am SO GLAD that I did! It is amazing!! It smells like the best kind of doughnuts (honestly the only kind I will eat) - the cake kind and it literally makes you feel like you are in a bakery where fresh, delicious, sugary doughnuts are being made. I definitely can see this being a stock-up candle for sure. Everyone should run (don't walk) to their nearest Bath & Body works and pick this one up!! 
 

It might be in the 80's today, with talks of 90's tomorrow but it won't stop me from savoring anything fall. I feel like fall is the shortest season and its definitely my favorite so I want to enjoy it as much as I can!!
