Bath and Body Works Fall Candles 2012
Pumpkin Cupcake- buttercream, pumpkin, candied ginger. You smell all of that, but I think the buttercream is the strongest note. Its sweet but very nice.
Cinnamon Sugared Doughnuts- best candle ever. Fried doughnuts rolled in cinnamon and sugar. You can smell the 'fried' element to it. So realistic I cant stand it.
Brandied Pear- pear, cream, and a syrupy 'brandy' note. It reminds me of the whipped cream and pear candle from Anthropologie, but not as light. Its definitely not a heavy scent, but it has some depth.
Plum Wine and Amber- I don't know how I feel about this one. The scents seem too muddled together for my taste. In the store, it smelled like a jelly/grapey/fruity wine scent, but now I just smell the mulled/spiced scent. I may return this one. EDIT: After smelling this a few more times, I'm definitely returning it. Im not sure why, but something about it just makes me wince.
Black Pepper Bergamot - The only note I can make out is lavender, but it really smells like old school shaving cream from a barber shop. It's a very warm, nostalgic scent.
I may return Black Pepper Bergamot and Brandied Pear for smaller versions. I love the scents, but I can't see myself using the full 3 wick size in those particular scent. I will definitely return Plum Wine Amber for the same size in the new French Baguette scent that will be released in August.
