Hi, my name’s Felicia and I’m an autumn-aholic.
Okay, but in all seriousness, I’m a teensy tiny bit addicted to autumn. It’s my favourite season after all. And what better way to fully embrace the autumn spirit than to fill your house with glorious scents of pumpkin and apple delight! Bath & Body Works is my go-to for candles and other home-related scents, even though I’m slowly warming up to Yankee Candle too. I just think their scents and the designs of their candles are so lovely, and they’ve typically got great sales going on.
Since I’ve returned from Florida, I’ve done two separate trips to Bath & Body Works and spent a bundle each time… Oops. I’ve bought quite a few lovely autumnal things that I thought I’d share with you guys today as a) I love sharing the autumnal joy and b) I haven’t done a haul post in quite some time. So let’s get right into it, shall we?
Stress Relief 3-Wick Candle [x] - This was the first of two replacement candles I purchased, as two of my favs were nearly completely burnt out. This candle has a lovely scent of eucalyptus and spearmint that is soo soothing. I usually burn this candle while I’m studying or doing homework, as a little way to keep my stress levels down while I get to work. I’ve found it’s really made an improvement to the whole experience!
Mahogany Apple 3-Wick Candle [x] - Surprisingly, this my boyfriend’s favourite scent of the Bath & Body Works collection and this is the second of the two replacement candles - he nearly burnt his entire first candle in this scent. My boyfriend is not at all into candles or scents at all for that matter, but this one is an exception. It’s a mix of mahogany woods, golden apple, pink peppercorn, and fresh lavender sprigs.
Vanilla Pumpkin Marshmallow 3-Wick Candle [x] - Prior to this year, I’ve been very anti-pumpkin (I know, I know, I’m in the minority). I’ve never liked anything pumpkin before, except for as decor, so I never gave pumpkin-scented candles much attention. But this year I thought I’d branch out and give them a try. After a bit of a browsing, I realized I do like some pumpkin candles after all! This was one of the ones I loved most - I really liked about 4 but could only afford to buy a couple haha. It’s got a delicious scent of vanilla, pumpkin spice, homemade marshmallow, and caramel that really smells like a confectionary to me. It’s very sweet, but wonderful.
Pumpkin Apple 3-Wick Candle [x] - This had to be my absolute favourite pumpkin-scent in the entire store. It’s a mix of red delicious apples, pumpkin, cinnamon, and clove buds. I’m not usually big on cinnamon, in fact certain levels of cinnamon make me a bit nauseous, but I find it hardly noticeable in this candle, more of a background note. I’ve burnt this one the most so far and can see it running out before the season is done if I’m quite honest!
I’ve also become quite the connoisseur of car scents in the past few months after I discovered the Yankee Candle scents (which you can read about in my Recent Favourites post). How did I not know until now that Bath & Body Works sells car scents?! The Car Scentportables are so cool because you first buy a little vent clip (there are a ton of cute designs, mine is a rosy gold one) and then you buy refills to put in the holder. The refills come at about $3.50 a piece, but there was a 4/$10 sale going on when I was at the store so I bought 4 :) I like how you can buy any refill you like, which means that as the seasons change, so can my scents! (You can buy my holder here).
Car Scentportables Pumpkin Apple Refill [x] - Of course I bought the Pumpkin Apple scent for my car!! It’s autumn (almost) after all! I’m sure this will be the first one I use, once I’ve gone through my Yankee Candle scents.
Car Scentportables Sweater Weather Refill [x] - Oddly enough, I don’t actually have the Sweater Weather candle, even though I love the scent. It smells of fresh sage, juniper berry, aromatic eucalyptus, and fresh woods - so it’s a very nature scent, which I really like.
Car Scentportables Flannel Refill [x] - Girl I love me some Flannel. Is this anyone else’s fav autumn scent?! I have it in a hand soap too and oh my goshhh it’s heaven. The fragrance is crisp autumn air, bergamot, heirloom mahogany, and soft musk.
Car Scentportables Vanilla Bean Refill [x] - And, of course, I had to pick up a lovely vanilla scent because I’m a major vanilla fan. I feel like this would be a good anytime scent for any season, in-between trips to Bath & Body Works to get new refills!
Let’s see how long I can go before I’ve burnt out every candle and gone through every scentportable lol…
