Back in this post I showed you guys a Bath and Body Works bag asking you what you think I got. Well the wait is over. If you guessed candles, you're right!
I've been hooked on the Bath and Body Works 14.5oz candles ever since I purchased my first two during their big Semi-Annual sale. Although I still think $22.50 for a candle is insane... I can understand why they have such a large cult following. The scent is intense just by opening the lid, and when it's lit, the scent takes on a whole new level of intensity immersing the room in its heavenly smell.
Because I'm signed up with their emailing list, I frequently get emails from them telling me about sales and promotional offers. Among them, I got informed about their new Paris With Love Collection that just came in. The whole campaign for it looks exquisitely divine. I am currently only interested in their candles and boy do they look irresistible. Plus it didn't help that they were having a sale on their Paris-inspired candles either: 3-Wick Candles, 2 for $30! I mentally noted that I needed to visit my local store soon to decide if the candles were worth getting. But before I even got a chance, I got another email from them offering me an awesome coupon for a free 14.5oz 3-Wick candle ($22.50 value) with any $30 purchase! After doing a quick calculation in my head, I figured that if I bought 2 candles for $30 and get a free candle with my coupon, each candle would only come up to $11.30 with tax! Well, of course I immediately dashed to my nearest store to check out the candles, and oh gosh, I highly suggest you guys check them out too. Luckily I only liked 3 of the 4 candle scents so it wasn't a touch decision to decide which ones I wanted.
Total love right? Not only do they smell good, they sound really good too! I got Paris Amour, Sweet Macaron, and French Baguette. I wasn't really feeling Cafe Au Lait, even though it sound divine, but maybe it'd smell better lit then directly from the candle itself.
Paris Amour smells light and clean, like a fragrant soap. I even have the little hand santizers in this scent as well, I like it that much.
Sweet Macron smells incredibly sweet. My sister doesn't think it smells like macrons but I think it kind of does. Then again, I would need to have a macron in my hand to compare. At the very least, it smells like a sweet dessert bakery.
And the French Baguette has got to be my favourite! It smells exactly like a french baguette fresh out of the oven! You guys have got to go smell this because it smells so good!! I made my siblings smell it and they could hardly believe the resemblance. I will have to get myself a backup.
They also sold these little cute gift boxes to wrap these candles in if you want to give them away as presents. I personally think it's a great idea. Because it's decorated with a touch of Paris love, not to mention the smells are out of this world, the candles in this collection would be better suited as a gift than the other candles they sell. I'm actually tempted to get myself a little box because they're so cute haha.
Bath and Body Works has a lot of sales often so it's best to wait for some sort of deal if you want to purchase something from them.
Lastly, I forgot to share these pencils I found at Chapters Indigo in my last post. Oh snap.
p.s. If you're wondering, I'm up to 7 Bath and Body Works candles now :X
