Hello and Merry Christmas Eve Eve everyone!! 😀
For my blogmas day 8 post, I thought it would be fun to double up and speak about my favorite holiday scents with you guys + my excitement for the next 2 days!!
Being able to do Blogmas this year for the first time has been SO much fun (in spite of me cheating a little bit and not posting every single day, consecutively). Hopefully, next year I’ll do a much better job at posting regularly for it, but I’ve had a lot of fun doing them, as well as I hope you guys have had fun reading them.
I can’t believe it’s already almost over!! Time went by SO fast 😦 it’s a little unfortunate, but hey, it is what it is and all we can do is make the best of the last couple of days we have left right?!
So let’s get right into the post!
* * * * * *
I want to start off by saying that if I get candles from ANYWHERE, 9 times out of 10, they’re from Bath & Body Works. I almost never get them from anywhere else, just because I feel like they always have such a great variety of scents for holidays, special occasions, etc. PLUS they always have a TON of deals on them all the time. What’s not to love about them?!
I actually have quite a few favorites from here, but for the sake of this post, I’m only mentioning my absolute favorite scents for this time of year (the holidays).
- Marshmallow Fireside
This is actually one of their recurring scents that I’m pretty sure they bring every year specifically for this time of year, either that or it’s a scent they just bring back for Winter in general. But regardless, it’s definitely a favorite and ALWAYS have to have it with me during the holidays. I DO know that every year they switch the ‘packaging’ of it, so if you’re in the store and looking for this, try not to go looking for it solely based off the picture I have.
In the fragrance notes, it says that it has Toasted Marshmallow, Smoldering Woods, Fire Roasted Vanilla, and Crystallized Amber. Just typing this alone, I can smell the scent from what I’m picturing in mind, and it is AMAZING. If you haven’t picked it up and/or tried smelling this candle before, you need to get on that ASAP.
2. Vanilla Bean Noel
I actually bought this candle about a year or 2 ago, so I’m not at all sure if this is another recurring candle that they always bring back, or just one of their limited edition holiday ones unfortunately. However, I definitely think it’s still worth the risk looking for it because this also smells AMAZING.
In the fragrance notes it says that it has Fresh Vanilla Bean, Warm Caramel, Whipped Cream, Snow-kissed Musk, and Sugar Cookies……OH-MY-GOD. THE BEST!!!
3. Better Not Pout
I’m pretty positive that this was one of their limited edition holiday scents unfortunately. But, I’m sure if you shop around and smell-out the holiday candles they have in-store, that you’ll be able to find something similar to it, if not the exact thing, just with different packaging.
The fragrance notes says that it has Spiced Gingerbread, Vanilla Icing, Sparkling Cinnamon Sugar, and Fresh Ground Nutmeg.
How great does that sound?!
And lastly, 4. ‘Tis The Season
I believe that this is another one of their recurring scents, however, I don’t actually think they typically tend to come out with a bigger, 3-wick version. I think the only size they come with for this one is this single-wick size OR their miniature one. Regardless, their candles tend to last a long time (for me anyway), so even if you get this size, it’ll last you quite some time.
In the fragrance notes it says that this one contains Bright Red Apples, Freshly Ground Cinnamon, and Deep Green Pine. I pretty much only smell the cinnamon, but I really don’t care because this, to me, smells completely like Christmas in a candle. Like if I had to think of a scent that was associated with Christmas time, it would definitely be this one. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!
* * * * * *
Well, those were my absolute favorite holiday scented candles. If you haven’t seen or smelled these before, I definitely recommend that either now or next year, you make it a priority to go pick them up and try them. I promise you won’t be disappointed!!
Before I end this post, I just wanted to express how happy and excited I am for this Christmas. Sure there are a few things that are different and have changed from last year, or previous years in general, but overall, the feeling of happiness and excitement is still there and only continues to grow.
This year, I’m going to be able to spend Christmas with my extended family, which is something I haven’t been able to do in YEARS. So, the next 2 days are going to be super busy, exciting, and fun and I can’t wait for it all! I’ll be sure to do an updated post on Wednesday or Thursday about how it all went! 🙂
But, until then…I wanna wish all of my followers, family and friends a very Merry Christmas, thank you guys so much for reading. Please follow, like, share, and comment and I’ll see you guys for Blogmas Day 9 in a few days!
*Btw!! I’m almost at a 100 followers!! Which, if you didn’t know, that was one of my goals to accomplish by or before the end of 2018, ahh!!! So crazy!! Thank you guys so much! 😀 *
