Bath and Body Works in the FallTime

When I went into Bath and Body Works a week or so ago, I was kinda bummed. I didn't find anything that appealed to my nose and that I couldn't leave the store without. I think I was bitter about the Cinnamon Sugared Donut fiasco. They aren't carrying that candle this year. That's ok I guess. But I was not having it last week.

So then I went back into Bath and Body Works a couple days ago and this time, I took my time. I tend to read the candle name and if it doesn't have any variation of a baked good on it, I won't even smell it. I smelled all of the Pumpkin candles and was expecting to leave with Pumpkin Pecan Waffles, or Pumpkin Cupcake, or Blueberry Pumpkin Patch. That last one was really interesting. It smelled like a fully ripened blueberry on the vine (do blueberries grow on a vine?). They oddly pin pointed what a blueberry would smell like on the brink of crisp weather when they are fully ripened and about to die. Just go give it a sniff next time and you will know what I mean.


 Cider Lane
Then, I smelled Cider Lane. I hope they have a Wallflower in this scent because I want to put it in my kitchen and let it live there forever. It smells just like caramel apples. Forget the description. You can smell the top note of apple cider right off the bat. But then, you get that bottom note of the sweet, buttery caramel. I was so intrigued at that last second that I picked it back up to give it a whiff again. And when you burn it? The caramel is just as prevalent as the apple cider scent. Amazing. Must try. I think it is the sweetest candle this year.

"As sweet as a trip to the local apple orchard each year, a delicious fall blend of mulled cider, warm caramel and sweet cinnamon."

 Roasted Pumpkin Butter:
The name sounds like it wouldn't be the most sweetest scent of the bunch, but it is sweet and also has that buttery note in there which was exactly what I was looking for. It smells like a sweet cinnamon pumpkin butter. Now I want to duplicate this in the form of a muffin. The cinnamon and sweetness is in there but it smells more butter and pumpkin than anything. It doesn't have as high of a scent throw as Cider Lane but it does fill up the living/dining room. 

"Savor the delicious fragrance of a fall treat from the local pumpkin patch-whipped pumpkin, toasted cinnamon and creamy vanilla butter."

 Blackberry Spice
I had a survey on my receipt and if I filled it out, I got $10 off of $30! I always have a survey it seems, I just didn't know about them before until a cashier told me one time. Take a look next time at your receipt because those never expire. Anyhow, I needed something for a few more bucks. I really wanted to try maybe the coffee candle or something but since they were out, I obviously couldn't. Plus the girl raved about this one so I decided to try it out. I personally liked the Blueberry Pumpkin Patch but they didn't have a baby candle in that fragrance. Le sigh. This one is good though.

"Bring home the perfect blend of sweetness & spice - fresh picked berries, crushed cloves, cinnamon bark and vanilla cream."

I Love S'mores Pocket Bac. I have my I Love Cinnamon Buns Pocket Bac too. I Love the hand sanitizers that smell like food. They are so cool! Remember the Peanut Butter and Jelly one or the Chocolate Chip Cookie one? I Love S'mores just smells like vanilla buttercream or something.


I never do get a chance to buy the hand soaps and I have always wanted one. So I settled on Pumpkin Caramel Latte. It doesn't actually smell like the candle. It smells really good though. Like buttery.... or creamy. I can't really pin point it to be honest. Wash your hands with it one day at the store and you will get it.


I already want to go back and buy more stuff.  I have a whole list. It's a ridiculous obsession.

Did you guys buy anything from the fall line from Bath and Body Works?
