Most scented candles give me a hell of a headache. Like for example, no matter how much i love Mahogany Teakwood (a candle that smells like the abs of an ambercombie model) it still gets me dizzy whenever it’s lit up in my room. And because my nose is too damn picky, I had to buy lots of Bath and Body Works candles just to handpick those i love — that also doesn’t make me wanna dunk my nose into a bowl full of coffee seeds.
Here are some I’ve encountered most recently. I hope it can help. I know how confusing it can be to pick a scent out of the bazillion BBW selections, especially for those who shops online because they don’t have any BBW outlets near their places. PS. Guys, my laptop is dead and since then my life has been so disorganized — hence the blogging hiatus. Please pray with me that the laptop gets fixed soon and that the service people won’t need three months to get it running again. Also, thanks to those who nominated my blog and voted for it at the Philippine Blogging Awards, you’re the best!! ♥
Watermelon lemonade and Peach Bellini are very fruity. They smell exactly like the drinks they were named after… just multiply its scent throw by a hundred. I don’t even have to light up these candles to fill up my room with their scents, Cherry Blossom Sangria is known to smell like a flower fruit cake, which to be honest sounded gross to me at first, but you’ll be impressed at how BBW made it smell cute and fancy. It reminds of Princess Mia… Thermopolis Reynaldi’s (had the strong urge to write her full name) garden party in Princess Diaries.
Moving on to bakery scents — Vanilla Bean Marshmallow is basically a creamy white chocolate. It’s subtle sweet so it’s very user friendly for those who gets easily nauseous like me. Cinnamon Sugared Doughnut smells exactly like Auntie Ann’s cinnamon sugared bread sticks. I’ve had this before and it always makes me wanna run and take out a doughnut at Krispy Kreme.
Kitchen Spice is nutmeg with a tiny hint of caramel. It doesn’t smell like coffee but it strongly reminds me of cozy places like Starbucks… or a small cabin. This is also one of Zoella’s *fan girl-ing* favorite fall scent. Apple Crumble is spot on just like the hot delicious apple pie my bf’s mom made before — not a fan of the candle’s color but this scent is delicious! Salty Caramel has got to be my fave (next to Leaves) cause it smells exactly like this creamy Caramelo ice cream I order when i need a pick-me-up. It instantly brightens up my day.
Beach Cabana may have been inspired by a cologne of a hot hot boy you meet at the beach. It’s a fresh playful scent that reminds me of this beautiful resort my best friend and I stayed at in Boracay. Summer Boardwalk smells like a combination of sweet treats and snacks you’ll find at a carnival… perhaps in Brighton (I wanna live there!) — pretzels caramel popcorn and icecream :)
