As you all know I was PSYCHED to get a mini Bath and Body Works candle in my Influenster VoxBox. Even better? The attached coupon for $10 off the three wick candle! I headed into the Bath and Body Works store in my local mall for a haul and walked out with even more than I expected!
First, I used that coupon to grab five of the three-wick candles. I got Fresh Balsam, Bonfire Maplewood, Evergreen, Spice, and White Barn No. 2 Chestnut and Clove.
It was really tough choosing just five candles, but I went for five that smelled like Christmas. The Balsam and Evergreen candles smell very much like freshly cut trees, so those would be fab if (like me) you have a fake tree in your house! (I refuse to chop down a living tree for a mere two weeks’ worth of decoration.)
The Bonfire Maplewood candle makes me think of eating treats by a fireplace. The Chestnut and Clove and the Spice candles both smell like their namesakes, but while the first candle has a more low-key spice scent, the Spice candle is very strong. I think it would make a whole room smell like baking spices!
If you want to pick up your own three-wick candles, you need to hurry, because they’re currently on sale: two for $20! That’s half off! This offer only lasts through November 4 and whenever this deal goes up these candles fly off the shelves, so I wouldn’t wait to stock up!
Of course, because I had many other coupons to use, and because I simply can’t resist that store in general, I wound up leaving with other purchases as well! First up was a giant metal candle sleeve for one of the giant jar candles; it was only $5! Here it is with the Balsam candle; isn’t it pretty?
Then there was this mini Cranberry Woods candle. I’m not sure about this scent; it’s like a deeper, less fruity version of a cranberry candle. I don’t know if I’ll wind up buying a larger version of this candle; I’m really in love with the pine scents!
Okay, non-candle items: a pair of lovely hand creams, one for me and one for my Mom. I think this Peppermint Twist scent is just what I need to get me through the winter months; it was $4 but there were very few left in-store, so I’m not sure if you’ll be able to find it or not!
The True Blue Spa hand cream was on sale for $6 and features a blend of cashmere, shea, and silk. It smells like almonds, vanilla, and sandalwood. I’m not sure if this was supposed to be a clearance item or not. (You can also see how tiny that mini candle is in this picture.)
I also picked up a couple of bottles of lotion from the clearance table: Paris in Bloom and Paris Nights, both of which were marked down to $5.50. You can find matching shower gels for these too, I believe. Paris in Bloom smells similar to the original Paris Amour, but with a slightly sweeter, more floral twist; it’s described as pink peony, dewy pear, and blonde woods. I know it’s a rather summery fragrance but I really like it!
The second is (I’m hoping) similar to my Black Raspberry Vanilla, which isn’t sold in stores anymore. (Sad face! But I can still get it online.) Paris Nights is described as French jasmine, clementine, and Cabernet musk.
And guess what? I left the store with even MORE coupons! They’re handing out holiday coupon books right now with special deals that run in stages, starting now and working up through Christmas. Make sure you check the dates on the coupons so they don’t expire behind your back!
Okay, a few more things to tell you: if you’re shopping online, you can get $10 off purchases of $30 or more and free shipping on orders of $50 or more with the code “TEN50”, now through November 18. They’re offering buy tree, get two free on Signature Collection body care through November 4. And as always, you’ll get coupons and coupon codes on your receipts with all purchases, so stagger them carefully to take maximum advantage of your coupons and the sales!
