I used to love and purchase many candles from B&BW but now I use tarts/melts/flameless fragrance more.These were too expensive and I did not feel comfortable burning candles with a young child and a dog in the house.That said, I love many of my "old favorites" and the packaging continues to look great.I am just not a candle-addict any more.

I hate to be the seeming voice of dissention here, but I just have had no luck with their candles in the last couple of years. Tried many scents and many sizes and even those in the mason jars and such. Many smell great in the store, but once I get them home and burn them, I detect no scent at all, and my nose is sensitive. At best (?) a couple of them I can smell if I am standing right next to them, but most to me just smell a flame burning. Their sprays also seem very chemical smelling to me anymore, but that is for another time and place. But their candles are definite misses for me anymore. Maybe it is since they paired with White Barn and left Slatkin behind, I don't know. But it has been years since I've enjoyed a Bath and Body Works candle. And i know it is not 'just my nose' because there are other brands I enjoy and actually have throws.But seriously I would say you are better off buying a Better Homes and Gardens candle or even the melts. Also I am not a fan of the often what feels like tweenager pictures on their candles. If I had a tweenager, I might appreciate that. But as a grown woman, I do not want a cartoon or what basically looks like some kind of clip art type of thing on my candle.

I love these candles! I had bought my first 1 for the family to enjoy for my mon's bday & ended up buying another 3 wick (so have 2 of those 3 wick ones), & 3 little ones today. The scents are all so hard to resist. They don't produce black gunk around the rims which is good, they make our entire house fragrant including my bathroom which is where I smoke. I love the colors of the wax, the scent, how long lasting they are basically everything, but they are a bit out of my price range when not on sale. There is a scent in that store bound to suit everybody so I would so encourage y'all to check out these candles, they are much better than Yankee candles. I can't wait for the fall/holiday/Xmas scents, with something in that store to please everyone's tastes you cannot really go wrong!

I'm a confirmed candle snob and never, ever did I think I would have anything nice to say about B&BW candles. My exposure was mainly to fruity sweet and bakery gourmand scents, which I dislike universally, and which the B&BW store at the mall near me always smells overwhelmingly like.But I've been on a search for a grapefruit candle and heard enough about Pomelo Grapefruit that I wandered in to try one ... just in time for the big sale. I was really surprised how much I liked the Pomelo and went back for more but they were out (I could have got the 3-wick but honestly, I think it would have gassed us out of the house, that candle is STRONG). I ended up with a bag full of 4oz candles at $3 per pop: Limoncello, Lemon Mint Leaf, and Lilac Blossom. I don't think I would pay full price for any of them except maybe Pomelo but I think all of them were definitely worth the sale price. The florals shocked me the most. I was down with the idea of cheap&cheerful, strong citrus scents for the kitchen but my bedroom is kind of a sacred shrine to Diptyque and Tatine. I really, really like the lilac candle though -- it might be too strong in an enclosed room but with the window open and the fan on I'd just be wasting expensive delicate scented candles anyway. I think I need to run back and grab another and maybe a honeysuckle.EDIT I ended up scouring the B&BWs in my city down to literally the last Lilac Blossom. It's SO NICE for a fresh summer scent and smells so natural. I also grabbed a few Garden Party, and was also really impressed with that one: super light, green, natural fresh rose with other very light airy florals. I didn't care much for Honeysuckle Bouquet but I think that was an issue of individual taste because it didn't smell artificial or bad, just not for me. I'm completely sold on B&BW's florals, and will be checking them out from now on.

Ok they aren't the best out there but they are damn good!!!! Nothing is like my circle e candles but I use the BBW ones for my rooms and bathrooms and they smell great. Some scents are over the top but all candles has weird obnoxious scents! Overall great candle and I would repurchase. The best thing about them is they don't create much soot obviously cause I never have a nasty black rim around my candle!

Pineapple Mango: Smells just like the fruits, instead of perfume-y. I can almost "taste" the flavors. This candle smells like juicy sweet and tarty pineapple, mango, and a hint of creamy vanilla to soften the sharpness.London Calling: Reminds me of the time I worked at Teavana! Smells like tea and lemon; like a very expensive, top-quality Earl Grey.Tokyo Petals: This is what I was hoping Fresh's "Sake" perfume and bath products to smell like. BBW's "Tokyo Petals" smells like delicious, warm rice sake mixed with delicate cherry blossom petals. Unfortunately, there was still no throw even after three hours of burning, so back to the store it went.American Boardwalk: Smells so festive and full of nostalgia! It reminds me of the times I went to the fair as a kid. "American Boardwalk" smells like delicious caramel popcorn (no cheap burnt note here) and vanilla ice-cream........................................................................................................................................................I have bought over 10 BBW candles, and only one has turned out to be a dud so far (no scent throw). Thus, I would give these candles in general two thumbs up, and will definitely repurchase.

I bought two 3-wick candles from Bath and Body Works. I bought one holiday scent and the Lemon scent. The scents were ok. They didn't smell particularly strong, and not particularly refined. I've definitely smelled better. The packaging is also just ok. They came in plain glass jars and lids and the label of the scent. Aesthetically, there are nicer jars out there. One thing I found was that they burned away quite quickly. They burned evenly which was nice, but after one burn, you'll see a lot of wax has melted away. Also, I'm not a big fan of the wicks. I'm no expert, but they don't seem to burn very clean and they tend to smoke quite a bit after you blow them out. Finally, the price. At full price, these are definitely duds. You can buy much better quality candles for that price. If you wait til they are sale, they are much cheaper, but still, I'm not convinced they're worth it. I think I'll keep looking for better quality candles.
