When planning my recent trip to Florida, including a visit to a Bath & Body Works was a must.
I have always been the most excited about their fall-inspired scents, so my September visit was the perfect timing.
It would be my first time inside one of their stores and I can’t say that we have anything quite like it here in the UK.
I visited the store inside The Florida Mall and it was everything that I hoped it would be. I also went to the store at the Orlando International Premium Outlets, but the products there were not discounted and had exactly the same deals.

I smelt a LOT of candles. There is so much choice, which can be a little overwhelming, but they do have seasonal displays which helped. Admittedly, I got a little over-excited and didn’t think about the fact that I would have to carry around a heavy bag for the rest of the day, or how on earth I would get them home without my suitcase being overweight. So I restrained myself as best I could and here is what I bought.
Crisp Red Apple, Golden Nectar, Warm Clove Spice with Essential Oils. What’s not to like? This scent is perfectly fresh yet warming and really sums up everything I love about this season. I’ve had it lit a number of times now and it really does fill up the room with fragrance, actually, my entire downstairs. The wax has burnt down quicker than I was expecting it to, but with a perfectly even melt which shows its quality. I would definitely recommend this candle and I’m so pleased I got to try it. Zoe Sugg has always raved about this scent in particular and I believe it is her personal favourite, which is what led me to choose this one and it didn’t disappoint!

Marshmallow Fireside Candle
Toasted Marshmallow, Smouldering Woods, Fire Roasted Vanilla, Crystallized Amber with Essential Oils. This is my dream scent in a candle (it reminds me of the Maison Margiela Replica By The Fireplace perfume, which I have lusted over for years but sadly remains out of my budget). This one isn’t so fresh, but warm and woody, the ultimate cosy scent. If you’re somebody that isn’t a fan of that bonfire smell, not to worry, because this isn’t too overpowering with the added sweetness of the marshmallow. Unfortunately, I can’t say that the quality of this candle was as impressive as the other. Again I have lit it a number of times now. From the off, it didn’t burn well, with the wax not melting to the edges and each of the wicks having a weak flame. This meant the fragrance throw wasn’t as strong which is such a shame. It’s possible that I just picked up a candle from a bad batch, but looking at recent reviews on their website it seems to be a common problem? Either way, I would be willing to give this one another try because the scent really is glorious.
