I had gotten a Bath & Body Works gift certificate for my birthday and used it to order several candles. You may remember that I am a total wax tart junkie when it comes to home scents. Shortly before Christmas though, for whatever reason, hubby and I got into a candle burning kick. So what did I use my gift certificate on? Candles. Yes, BATH....and.....BODY....and I bought candles.
The only one of this group that I've burned so far is the Mint Chocolate. The scent is wonderful! The strength of that scent though (the 'throw') is kinda weird. When we had it burning on the coffee table and we were sitting on the couch watching TV, I couldn't really smell it. However, if you left the room you could smell it. The other day I moved this to my desk and had it burning on the top shelf. Sitting here at the computer I couldn't smell it at all, but when I came in the house from being outside I smelled it immediately, even from the back room. I guess we'll need to put the candles somewhere central or out of the way when we burn them.
I'd also seen a review on YouTube where the person said her small candles burned lopsided. We have that happen too. We try to turn the candles, but it seems like the wick wants to sag over to one side. We've had to prop them slightly to try and even things out.
Overall though, I don't know if I'll buy any more of these candles. I still like wax tarts more. I know B&BW has those wall flower thingies that you plug into an outlet and they scent your rooms but I don't really get into the plugin types. Just something about using electricity.....I don't know, maybe it's only fractions of pennies to use them? I don't know. They also have the scented oils. I'm considering trying those. I was never interested in them before because I didn't like having liquid sitting around in case the cat got curious or rambunctious. My fattycat is fat and old now though, so I don't think he'd cause trouble. And I keep my warmers on the top shelf of my desk so everything would probably be ok. Maybe I'll try the oils one of these days.
So, I got all those candles with my gift certificate, but I did get one body product too.
Moving on to my actual store hauls...............
