As you can tell by the number of BBW candles reviewed on this blog, they are not my favorite company for home fragrance. It’s just a personal preference but there’s something about the majority of their fragrances that leaves me flat. In general, they tend to be much stronger than say an average Yankee or Village, and that’s too much for my house and my nose. Also, I had a hard time getting the candles in the first place, since I’m in central Europe and there are no physical stores here.
Last week though I saw that a well known European online store started carrying Bath and Body Works products, candles included. It’s an online store I have been shopping for perfume at for years and I know they have a local page for all European countries, with loads of deals and they often do free shipping so I’m totally comfortable recommending them. The actual name of the store varies from country to country but you can tell it’s the same store since the page design is the same.
Anyway, since the BBW candles are readily available to me now, I think I’ll be trying more of their scents in the future, starting with their Halloween 2016 Collection.
They’ll put three scents into the BBW Halloween 2016 Collection; Bath and Body Works Halloween Vampire Blood, Bath and Body Works Halloween Boo, Bath and Body Works Halloween Purrfect Pumpkin. From what I heard, none of these are brand new fragrances but Vampire Blood is the freshest of the lot. Boo is Marshmallow Vanilla bean, Vampire Blood is Strawberry and a bit of plum, with a faint floral undertone and Purrfect Pumping is the sam e as Pumpkin Carving.
