These Bath & Body Works Candles Smell Luxurious AF


If you’ve never owned a Bath & Body Works 3-wick candle, first let me ask, is everything okay? Second, let me just tell you you can never go wrong with these candles. For starters, they go on sale at least twice a year, and they have some great scent profiles that can fill up a room (especially if you opt for the 3-wick candles, which I recommend).

The next candle sale for the year (2022) is likely to be sometime in early December. Based on past candle sales, they’ll likely be priced under $12. Follow me on Twitter so I can notify you!

Also, remember, when burning candles, it’s essential to trim the wick to get the best, soot-free burn possible (here’s my favorite wick trimmer). It also wouldn’t hurt to get a rechargeable electric lighter (you can find one for cheap on Amazon).

Below are the best candles carried at Bath & Body Works (that are currently available on the website)

To know me is to know that Mahagony Teakwood Intense (formally labeled High Intensity) is my all-time favorite Bath & Body Works candle. I’ll even go out on a limb to say that it’s one of the best smelling Bath & Body Works Candles ever.

If this is your go-to scent, chances are you’re single af looking for a man or a bachelor looking to impress your women friends with good vibes and smell goods.

Fragrance Profile: Toasted Marshmallow, Smoldering Woods, Fire Roasted Vanilla, Crystallized Amber with Natural Essential Oils

I’ll be the first to say sweet-scented candles are not my cup of tea. However, after hearing one of my favorite YouTubers, Arnell Armon, rave about this candle, I tried it, and I must say it smells fantastic. It’s a great fall/winter scent. In my opinion, it smells like a sweeter version of REPLICA By The Fireplace (which is available in a perfume and candle).

The gworl that may like this candle is likely into sweet-smelling perfumes like Prada Candy (available on ULTA, Sephora, Nordstrom, favorite pastime is getting her hair done, and enjoys taking long bubble baths just because…

If receiving gifts in the form of fresh bouquets is your love language, then the Rose Water & Ivy candle from Bath & Body Works is a must-have for you, babe. It smells divine and has a great throw that fills the room without being overpowering.

Don’t let the name fool you. This candle does not have an overpowering, orange grove kind of scent. The amber notes help offset the citrus making it a fresh scent that smells super welcoming.

I came across this article and I noticed your list already had my absolute favorite marshmallow fireside , so I bought the other ones and mainly I liked that you kept the list narrow.. you are spot on and your number 1 pick is definitely rivaling my favorite! The only miss on your list is the absence of Champagne Toast. Thanks for a great article.

Thank you so much for reading! Champagne Toast is also a great pick. I’d love to expand this list a bit but I’ve noticed that BBW cycles scents in and out rather quickly and changes direct links to candles so it’s hard to keep up without directing people to dead links.

Thanks again for reading and stay tuned for more candle-related content!
