I had no Christmas-y scented shower gel as we came into this holiday season so I had to place a quickie order from Bath & Body Works earlier this week. The main purpose was to get Twisted Peppermint shower gel, but then three mini candles hopped into my cart. I'm clueless how that happened!
Ahem, yes, so let's look at those three little babies.
Twisted Peppermint - 'Cool peppermint,sugared snow, vanilla buttercream, fresh balsam, hint of musk.'
I think everyone knows what Twisted Peppermint smells like, right? It's the type of sweet, creamy vanilla mint that I like with just the barest hint of pine and musk to put a slight edge back into it.
Vanilla Snowflake - 'Creamy vanilla, icy fir, wintry mint, coconut flakes.'
The coconut flakes sounded like an interesting addition to the blend. This is a lot 'thicker' than Twisted Peppermint, a lot more vanilla, a lot less mint. It's okay but probably not one I'd get again.
Spiced Apple Toddy - 'Warm apple brandy, spiced plum, cranberry, cinnamon stick.'
I was absolutely loving the spiced fruit scents this fall, the warm spiced punch types, so I thought this would be nice to carry over into winter. And yes, I love this. Fruity and juicy, but warm from the spice.
There was some deal going on for the mini candles at the time I ordered. Not sure if it's still going on but at the time they came out to $3.20 each. Still a crazy price for a 1.3 oz. candle but at least it's cheaper than the regular price of $4.50. And they're so stinkin' cute!
I think I need to just give up the fight and start being a regular Bath & Body Works customer. I buy for fewer and fewer people each Christmas, so I think I might go ahead and start doing holiday shopping there. That's kind of exciting for me! Plus, there is a BBW outlet store near me that I need to start frequenting.
