Bath & Body Works: Candles & Wallflowers ~ Review

I have been going to Bath & Body Works for years but usually only for lotions, lip balms, body butters, and liquid soaps.  I know my girlfriends purchase their Candles and Wallflowers and now I know why.

BBW's goal is to bring the tropics to you.  They want to turn your home into a tropical oasis, as if you are sitting by the beach, relaxing, drinking a refreshing cocktail, and soaking up some sun without leaving your home.  This collection comes in either candles or fragrance bulbs.  Their candles comes in 3 sizes - mini (1.3 oz), small (4oz), and 3 wick (14.5 oz).  The Wallflower plugs are needed for the fragrance bulbs and they could last up to 8 weeks.  I was advised that their new fragrance bulb has been improved - loaded with more fragrance that would last longer than before.

I had the opportunity to try a few of their New Tropical Collection.  I received their Tiki Beach in a candle, a White Tipped Wallflowers Fragrance plug with two fragrance bulb - Tiki Beach and Beach Cabana.

The scent I received smells fantastic.  I really like the fragrance bulb.  I had it plugged in my kitchen over night and in the morning the whole room smelled like it was filled with flowers.  The Tiki Beach has scents of toasted coconut, vanilla musk, and orchids.  The Beach Cabana has a scent of rich jasmine and orange blossom.  I never had the Wallflower before and I think they are much better than before.

  3. These are great to bring us out of the winter bla's thanks :D

  4. Love the Wallflower plug! I really would like to smell the Oceanside candle!


  5. I want a Wallflower Plug! Not only do they look pretty but from your description, they smell nice and last long. I am going to check them out next time I visit Bath & Body Works. Thanks for the product review.

  6. I love bath and body works!! Exactly like you said it brings the tropics into your home. Makes you feel a little better when you smell coconuts and then look outside to see the blizzard thats happening!

  7. I love Bath & Body Works. I haven't been there in sooo long because its a long drive to the city to go to the mall. Since reading this I feel like taking a drive and going to buy me some pampering gifts. Thanks for the awesome review!

  8. I'd love to have the shell night light

  9. I want a wallflower plug so bad!!!

  10. Tiki beach is my favourite scent from this collection

  11. Oh this list of scents makes me think of sunny days!

  12. I especially love the look of the wallflower, something different and attractive too - looks rather like a large brooch from the 50s. The fragrances sound delightful, I'm none too sure which I'd like best.

  13. I should have stocked up on these in the summer so now that it is -36 C I could pull them out and pretend! :)
