It's Beginning to Smell A Lot Like Christmas

It wouldn't take much time being in my apartment to realize I have an obsession with candles. There's one on the coffee table, the kitchen counter top, the side table, my desk, my bedside table… Oh, and then there's the closets full of them.


Yes, there's 12 candles. In one closet. There are more. It's a problem.

But I do go through about one candle every couple of weeks at my desk, so I have to have a stash of them (with options), right?

I was originally only loyal to Yankee Candles. That's literally all I would buy. Then Bath and Body Works took over control. In my opinion, they have a much more powerful scent than Yankee's do when they burn.

So when I got my B&BW Cyber Monday purchases delivered today- I jumped up and down with excitement. On Friday, I wrote about my obsession with my Sweater Weather candle, but when it comes to fall and winter scents- B&BW wins. How they capture fall in a bunch of wax I'll never know- but I love them for it.

So I compiled a list of the best Bath and Body Works/White Barn fall and winter scents that you must have in your house to keep you feeling cozy.

Flannel / Sweater Weather / Mahogany Teakwood
Applewood Bonfire / Marshmallow Fireside

(I've gone through one large Mahogany Teakwood candle, ordered another one, room spray, wallflower refills, and car scents in it too… I think I might like that one?)

Based on what is listed online, Applewood Bonfire and Sweater Weather are no longer available. Sad, sad day. (But you can still probably find them in store!)

But the other ones are one sale for 2 for $22, so snag 'em while you can.

Side note- they've also started creating locations scents. How cool is that? I want my room to smell like The Keys! Let's make that happen.

What are your favorite cold weather candle scents?

  1. I am seriously obsessed with candles too. I get them at the Dollar Tree so I can get 20 for just $20. My favorite scents are pine and peppermint! And then vanilla for year round :)

    xo Megan,

  2. I love BABW candles! My absolute favorite is 'Leaves' and I recently discovered 'Harvest Gathering' which is basically just like Leaves, haha.
