On Saturday, Bath & Body Works had their annual $8.50 candle sale on 3 wick candles. If you’re as obsessed with their candles, like I am, this is the sale you most look forward to. These candles typically retail at $22.50 (though I never purchase them at full price) the sale is such a good one, it’s hard to pass up. Realistically, I probably should pass it up. I have a ton of candles and don’t need anymore… but I burn candles daily so I go through them fairly quickly. It’s not like I have a room full of candles that go unburned and I’m just hoarding them all. That’s what I tell myself anyway, to justify buying more. Same goes with makeup. 🙂 It could be worse, right?
I went to White Barn (for those that might not know, White Barn is an extension of Bath & Body Works. They make a lot of their candles and it’s a store of wall to wall Bath & Body Works/ White Barn candles & fragrances.) Personally, I like shopping at White Barn for the candles over my normal B&BW stores. The atmosphere is nicer. The lighting is dimmer, darker than your typical B&BW stores. I just find the store more appealing and it has a more classier feel to it.
From my experience in past years I knew the stores would be crazy with this $8.50 candle sale so I decided to go early. I went to White Barn right as they opened. No one was there so it was pretty easy. In and out. Honestly I had no idea what I was going to buy. Usually I try and make some kind of list or mental note, however this year I just kinda winged it. I know the scents I like so I pretty much picked up a couple more backups. There were a couple of candles I wanted, Winter Rose, & Frosted Cupcake but I didn’t see them. I’m not sure if my store just didn’t have them, or if in my anxiety filled rush to grab what I wanted before tons of people came charging in, I overlooked them. Either way I’m kinda bummed about that. I’ll probably try and grab them once candles are on sale again.
I got 12 candles total and used a $10 off $30 coupon for each order. I stopped myself at 12 candles – (though I wanted to pick up maybe 4 or 5 more) it was like candle heaven and with such a great deal, how could you not go a little crazy? We all know I’ll be back in store purchasing more in no time… especially with SAS (Semi Annual Sale) right around the corner.
Every candle I purchased is one I already love, except for Snowflakes & Citrus. I’ve never tried that one before, it smelled really nice, so we’ll see how it goes. I LOVE the label on Marshmallow Fireside! It looks so cozy and nice. I wish the wax was white like in past years, I’m not a fan of the gray wax. Never have been. That’s just me though, the candle still smells fantastic no matter the wax color.
Did anyone else partake in the candle sale? What did you get?? Let me know!
Thanks for reading! 🙂
