A few weeks ago I hauled some fall candles from Bath & Body Works, including 3 mini ones that I’m sharing with you today! I like to purchase these small candles to test scents out if I’m not sure if I’d like them (when ordering online.) I picked up Mahogany Teakwood, Pumpkin Pecan Waffles, and Harvest Coffee. The small 1.3 oz candles don’t last long at all, I have already ran out of 2 of them- so I wouldn’t recommend them for those who want a candle burning every day for the entire day. I’d recommend them if you use a candle warmer, since you won’t be burning the wax off, they’ll last a long time.
First I’ll talk about Mahogany Teakwood, pictured above. This scent was my favorite of the 3 that I picked up. It’s a combination of mahogany, cedarwood, and oak, which smell of cologne when combined. This one is popular on YouTube and is known as the “Hollister candle” because it smells just like the scent of Hollister stores, without a headache. I love the scent of this one, but when I lit the candle I couldn’t smell it at all! I feel like this one would be better in a bigger size.
Next, I picked up Pumpkin Pecan Waffles, because I love pumpkin scents! This candle smells like pumpkin pecan waffles, maple syrup, and brown sugar, but all I smell is caramel. I’m not a fan of caramel scents, but if you are I’d recommend picking this up. It’s also had a strong smell when I was burning it, which I thought was impressive for the small candles. I wouldn’t repurchase this, it just wasn’t for me!
My last pick, Harvest Coffee, was probably the biggest letdown. I expected this candle to smell like a Starbucks, basically, but it smells like artificial chocolate & coffee combined, almost like a Tootsie Roll candy. It does burn pretty strong, but since the scent isn’t something I liked, I wasn’t really a fan!
So those are my mini reviews. Not the best, but not the worst. I’m sure they are better in the 3 wick candles, so I probably won’t be getting these tiny ones again, because I think I have bad luck with them! Stay tuned for some candles that I LOVE in the coming weeks!
