Bath & Body Works Mint Chocolate Candle

There is no denying how much I adore candles! I love everything about them from the colours and thousands of different scents to how they make me feel when I find one I really like the smell of. I love watching candles burn and often feel a lot more relaxed after burning my favourite scents. There is nothing better than walking into a room that smells like some of your favourite things whether it be Winter, Summer, Spring or Autumn scents. 

This is my first Bath and Body Works candle and I cannot tell you how long I have been wanting to share this with you but I just didn't have the heart to burn it!

As any UK residents know, Bath & Body Works isn't readily available over here (although it should be *wink wink nudge nudge*) and I decided to go on a hunt for the Mint Chocolate candle. I was told I could find it on eBay and at first was a bit hesitant as you never really know the quality of some items but I eventually found a seller that looked great, great reviews etc and decided to splurge a little on this beauty. 

My justification is celebration: I bought this candle a few weeks before we were due to move into our new house and it literally came the day before we were due to leave (back in December). As soon as I smelt this candle I was OBSESSED and that is putting it mildly, very mildly. I couldn't stop taking the lid off to smell it and promised to burn it asap when we got settled in. Everytime I went to burn it I just couldn't, it is so beautiful (I can't be the only one that gets pretty things and doesn't want to use them?). I spent £18.99 on it with free p&p which I thought could have been worse, I had been dying to get my hands on it and just couldn't resist the urge any longer and was ecstatic when it arrived in one piece. 

I don't even know why this is the scent that I tried so hard to track down as I actually find Mint Chocolate sickening to smell sometimes. I was worried but as I said, it smells incredible! Ever since having this candle I have been craving mint chocolate everything! I absolutely love the colour too, I really feel it brightens up the room. 

I had my fingers crossed that it didn't smell too strong as I don't really like candles that are overpowering and heady. This is the perfect combination of light, fresh, warming, deep, yummy, chocolatey and everything inbetween. They really did get the balance just right! It isn't overpowering and leaves behind the most beautiful scent after burnt, a fresh batch of mint chocolate chip cookies? A mint Aero? It is just, wow! 

The three wicks can burn for up to 45 hours and I know for USA residents they often have sale offers for the three wicks and mini's which is great news for people that can get there hands on them. 

I wish Bath & Body Works candles were something I could get my hands on regularly but for now this one will have to fill that void (and any others I can hunt off eBay). I am so glad I was able to get my hands on this one and if I ever get the opportunity to go to the USA again, I know that a big shop at Bath & Body Works will be on my list! 

Do you own any Bath & Body Works candles? What are some of your scent recommendations?

    1. It is hard to get hold of them if they aren't readily available but I couldn't getting one off eBay lol :) thank you for reading!

  2. Oh god, I need this now too! xx


    1. You really really do!! It's amazing, if you can't track it down I'd definitely recommend it :)

  3. I have this one in the mason jar. I also thought I was going to get sick of smelling this, but when burning it, it smells amazing. I've yet to burn it again since it's a seasonal candle. I cannot wait for the fall & winter seasons to come back here. If you can get some during the fall season, I recommend the Pumpkin Pecan Waffles & Pumpkin Cupcake. Oh, & Harvest Coffee. There's nothing that Bath & Body Works can do wrong. Awesome review <3

    1. It is such an amazing scent! Definitely my favourite by far, well it is really the only one I have been able to smell :P
      Oh my all of those sound absolutely beautiful Ashley <3 I will write them on my 'if I ever go to America list' hehe :) Thank you for reading xx
