Bath and Body Works: Fall Season

*AD - Some products mentioned were gifted to me for a review

Autumn is here! (for us in Scotland it seems like it never really left this year). Autumn usually means Pumpkin spice lates and candles in my world. What can I say, I am little bit basic. This year I have decided to embrace my shallow personality obsessing with Pumpkin Spice Lattes and treated myself with a candle from Bath and Body Works that smells like my favourite Pumpkin Spice Lattes. The candle is called Hi Pumpkin and I start to believe this is my favourite candle of all times beating even the Eggnog candle I got a few years back. 

I got the three wick candle that weights 411g. From my experience, the large BBW candles usually burn over 40 hours. They tend to be on the heavier side so there is no need to burn for long. In smaller rooms, it is enough to even keep the candle out unlit without the lid and it will spread the scent across the room. 

The Hi Pumpkin candle smell exactly like PSL but creamier. White chocolate is not one of the notes mentioned by the merchant but I can definitely smell it. What I like the most is that it does not smell like burnt peppercorn like most of the PSL candles out there - that usually give me a headache but this is luckily not the case for Bath and Body Works. The other notes noted are coffee, whipped cream, cinnamon and spiced pumpkin. Heavenly combination.  

I went to New York earlier this year for a business trip and as much as I loved it, I was marginally disappointed that the Bath and Body Works shop sold mainly the summery and spring scents as we were just getting into the warmer seasons. Don't get me wrong, I still bought the way too many things which makes me think it is not such a bad thing the winter and autumn season wasn't on yet because I would probably be stopped at the airport questioned why am I taking 32kg worth of candles out of the country. Nevertheless, the Bath and Body Work's candles are superior. 

If you are not too keen on the festive vibes of candles and would prefer something more fresh reminding you of a summer, I would definitely recommend the Mango Mai Tai ( ) which is one of the candles I got on my trip. It's one of the most popular ones from this brand as it comes back every year. It's sweet and tropical and I will burn the rest of it when I am suffering through my upcoming January blues to remind myself of the lovely summer I had this year. Champagne Toast from their White Barn collection is also very nice, significantly lighter compared to both Hi Pumpkin and Mango Mai Tai. It smells like berries with a touch of sparkling wine. 

Bath and Body Works does not have any stores in the UK so I get my BBW candles from which is one of the few shops that sells their candles and room sprays (if I am not traveling).
