Why Does Bath & Body Works Retire Their Best Scents?

Raspberry Peach Macaron - Bath & Body Works Retired Candle

I FINALLY CAVED. I went on Ebay and purchased one of my favorite rare candles that Bath & Body Works never brought back. Being someone who has never purchased a candle at full price, it actually hurt spending more than I ever normally would. But, when you see a decent price for 2 mason jars… Read more »

Pistachio Scent Guide

Pistachio Scent Guide

One of the latest trends in the world of wax is pistachio scents. It seems like every company is releasing their own version that smells almost identical to the other. I thought it would be nice to compare each one of them to figure out what the differences are, if any, and help you decide… Read more »

Key Lime Pie – Candle Comparison

Key Lime Pie - Candle Comparison

Last year, I randomly wanted to burn a key lime pie scented candle. Of course, there weren’t any available on the market at that time which is probably why I really wanted the fragrance in my collection.

Spring 2017 Candle Collections

Spring 2017 Candle Collections

By mid-January we glimpsed all of the Spring 2017 candle collections from most companies.

BBW Summer Bonfire Dupe

BBW Summer Bonfire Dupe - Scentsy Bonfire Beach - Melting With Michelle

Okay candle connoisseurs, I have an exciting dupe for you. Remember the Seaside Summer collection that Bath & Body Works released in 2015? It had some great scents and my personal favorite was Summer Bonfire. I’m not really surprised that it wasn’t brought back, but as I burn through my last candle I’ve been desperate for something similar…. Read more »

Fragrance Review – Peanut Butter Sugar

Goose Creek Peanut Butter Sugar Fragrance Review

I am super late to jump on the Goose Creek bandwagon but am nevertheless happy to have discovered the brand. Since placing my first order in April, I’ve melted 5 different scents and each have been enjoyable. My favorite fragrance from Goose Creek so far is Peanut Butter Sugar. While this isn’t anything new, it’s an amazing… Read more »

Midnight Blue Citrus Candle Review

Midnight Blue Citrus BBW Candle Review

When I discovered that several White Barn exclusives were released at Bath and Body Works nation wide, I rushed to my local store. I smelled all the most-talked about scents and really wasn’t impressed. As I was walking out of the store a gorgeous teal jar caught my eye – Midnight Blue Citrus. It was love upon… Read more »
