Slatkin & Co. Christmas Candles

Maybe your rolling your eyes because it's only the second of November and im already talking about Christmas. Maybe not. The really cool thing about the blogisphere is that everyone seems like they have been ready for Christmas since a few days before Thanksgiving. Yes! That's why you guys are my people! On black friday, I went to Bath+Body Works. I love that store. Among some other things, I got 2 candles for $20. I explained in my video that I saved over 70% off of my total purchase! I just wanted to really talk about the 3 wick candles I got for now. So you seen the haul, time for the review.

Merry Cookie
Sometimes with the Bath + Body Works bakery candles, they don't barely smell like anything once you light it (Im talking to you, Frosted Cupcake!)  On a scale of 1-10, I would say Merry Cookie is about 7 or 8 judging on the scent throw. The description reads that it smells like a bowl full of cookie dough and it couldn't be more true. It really smells like cookies! Not cupcakes, or anything else. It smells just like a sugar cookie. It's my favorite out of the 2

Cinnamon Frosting
I wanted to find something to replace my Cinnamon Sugared Donut that B+BW sells during the fall. They had it last year around this time, but they got rid of it really quick this year. I was bummed because it is seriously my all time favorite. If I was comparing the 2 I would tell you the Cinnamon Sugared Donut smells exactly like it sounds and it is much sweeter than Cinnamon Frosting. Cinnamon Frosting's scent description is almost identical to Cinnamon Sugared Donut except for the clove in the Cinnamon Frosting. The cloves gives it more of a spicy scent which I don't mind but if I had to choose, I would go for Cinnamon Sugared Donut.On a scale of 1-10, this would be again a 7-8 with the scent throw. 

Not only do you get the candle, but you get the corresponding recipe to go with it! I always wished they would have done this & this past fall, I have been looking for Cinnamon Sugared Donuts everywhere to eat. Well, now you don't have to wanna eat the candle! You can make the real food! haha! Plus, it's Christmas time which means, time to make cookies to pass out, which means you wont feel tempted to eat the whole batch! I am making Christmas Cookies again this year. I may do a series about it on this blog or on Meet Miss Jackson. let me know if you would like to see it here or there

I really, really, really, wanted a 3 wick of Vanilla Bean Noel but they were all out. That is my favorite. I got a medium one + some other things but i'll talk about all that next time.I wonder what the recipe is on the 3 wick Vanilla Bean Noel......

1 more thing....
The 3 wicks are supposed to burn for 30-45 hours. there is no way these burn for 45 hours! 30 maybe. 

a side note:
