I had to create a new Instagram account last weekend. Follow me @angela.mally for extra wax & candle posts 🙂
This is most of the damage that I did during the Bath & Body Works semi-annual sale for summer 2017, and its not a lot of stuff considering it has lasted all month. I am not much of a spring/summer person, so I haven’t been all that interested in the current collections. Fall and winter collections are another story… Still, I can usually find a few items that I like once the sale begins, and some things did stick out after shopping this year.
Truthfully, it was the candles that forced my hand when I submitted my orders online. I bought Paris Café for $10, along with four Tutti Dolci items and the Bourbon Strawberry Vanilla lotion that were 75% off. About a week later, the Paris/French collection went 75% off, so I picked four of those and bought the Berry Waffle Cone candle for $11. I also used a 20% off coupon code for both orders. I’ve had a difficult time trying to order the Berry Waffle Cone candle online, as it went out of stock almost daily. It is clearly a popular 3-wick.
My first impressions on some of these products: Paris Café is a very strong coffee fragrance, and to me, smells like a french vanilla cappuccino. I agree with the people that said Berry Waffle Cone smells like apple pie, and that White Mocha Kiss smells an awful lot like Beach Nights: Summer Marshmallow from last summer. The rest of the scents are originals to me. This is how the Bath & Body Works website describes each of these products:
Paris Café – Rich roasted coffee, sugared brioche, vanilla crème
Berry Waffle Cone – Sweet summer berries, golden waffle cone, creamy vanilla
Pink Peony Cremé – Blushing peony blossom, pink currant, & white amber dipped in nectar
White Mocha Kiss – Rich vanilla mocha & coconut orchid wrapped in marshmallow crème
French Riviera – Seaside citrus, jasmine water, amber musk, summer fig, driftwood
Bonjour Paris – Pink sugarcane, whipped marshmallow, candied orange blossom, white honeysuckle, fluffy amber
(Not pictured, it went straight into my purse!)
Bourbon Strawberry Vanilla – Bourbon vanilla, garden strawberry, & apricot nectar
Most of these scents are true to their titles and descriptions, except that I don’t really get as much sweetness out of Bonjour Paris as I expected. Another thing that I didn’t expect was enjoying Pink Peony Cremé as much as I do, because judging by its description, I figured I already had enough body care scents just like it.
Who has been shopping the B&BW semi-annual sale this month, and which candle & body care scents have you collected?
