Today was Bath and Body Works 'vote for your favorite, out of three given recipes, to see the winner made into a fragrance candle event'. OK, I give it the long name, but that's the gist. With a purchase today, between 11 and 2, you could get a tote bag and 3 mini candles from the Winter collection. I was soooo there!!
Gingerbread, Candied Sugar Plum and Marshmallow Peppermint
Besides makeup, nail polish, jewelry and clothes, I LOVE candles!!! One of the first gifts I gave my hubs, when we were first dating, was a platter that 3 different size pillar candles fit on. It was specifically for the bedroom. *wink, wink!* I'm very fortunate to have a husband that loves fragrant candles as well.
Funny, I have already spent quite a bit at Bath and Body Works on candles, lip glosses and hand soap for the Fall season, already. But I wasn't worried at all that I wouldn't be able to find something divine at today's visit.
The Store Manager, at an earlier visit, told me to come early; there would be lines. She was telling me the truth!!
I even documented my
In the last photo, you can see, to the right, the tote that was given away, as well. It was useful for me. I cleaned out the collection of recycled paper under my printer, and used the tote to collect the trash. Seriously, I have tons of totes already.
And so, here is my goodies I got...
The large candles, called 3 wick, were 2 for $20. That was a good deal since the mid-sized candles are $9.50 themselves. The large ones are normally $19.50. I got these two...
Pumpkin Caramel Latte and Marshmallow Fireside
Cinnamon Sugared Donut
Cinnamon Sugared Donut is already lit and is sitting on the top of the bookcase. Hence, it is surrounded by other mini candles and oh, a bottle of Zoya back there!
Now, here's the story on Lavender Macaroon candle...I was going to get that scented candle as one of my large, 3 wick candle purchases (it is a very favorite, right now). I couldn't find it so I asked. The sales person, who was quite pleasant, said that she didn't know if that candle was coming out in a larger size other than the mini. Oops! I ran over and got 3 of the remaining Lavender Macaroons! They may have had more in the back, I wasn't going to ask, I just grabbed.
And, here are the 3 for $5 minis I got along with one free S'Mores scent, since I had a coupon...
Three Lavender Macaroons and one S'Mores
And, here are the three new, fragrance candles that are just a small part of the Winter collection that will be released in October...
Candied Sugar Plum
It is very Fall and festive around the pink vanity, right now. Are you starting to feel Autumn creeping in? What is your favorite Slatken & Co. or Bath and Body Works candle scent?
