Thanks to my reader Jessica who e-mailed me about the Bath & Body Works Cork & Vine Candle Collection listing on E-bay that includes, wait for it, drum roll please…BLACK CHERRY MERLOT! OMG! I love the hand soap and I know many of you adore it as much as I do so when I heard it would be made into candle I seriously died.

I don’t wanna pay $22.50 plus shipping for a single candle but I am sincerely tempted. I wonder when Bath & Body Works will officially launch this collection in stores.

I do know that some test candles don’t always make it into stores let’s hope Black Cherry Merlot isn’t one of those!

Looks like this is a ten candle release inspired by Napa Valley. I did notice that Harvest Gathering is listed as one of the candles in this collection. This was a test candle I hauled in…2013? And it became available for Fall 2014 outside of test stores. Anyway, that left me wondering if the Cork & Vine Candle Collection might be a Fall 2015 release as I don’t see Harvest Gathering being available for Summer….!


That’s a long time to wait for Black Cherry Merlot. Damn. But I know if and when it does launch I’ll be stockpiling that bad boy like no one’s business especially if it smell as incredible as the hand soap!

If you can’t handle wait time you can get these now from seller fabulousthriftymamma.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I really hope Black Cherry Merlot makes it past the test scent phase and doesn’t become one of those unicorn candles I lust over on instagram (stink eye to lavender marshmallow)

      LOL AGREEEED! Or on ebay where they cost 50 plus free shipping GRRRR! I still wanna try that bubblegum poundcake candle that launched with the sweet shoppe collection! damn it!

    Oh yes. I would love to get Black Cherry Merlot and the Sparkling Pear Riesling. They both sound so good! I’d love to sniff all of them, really:) Hopefully they show up in store during a good promo!

    Check out tinybubblesfloating on Instagram! She always has tons of pics and mini reviews of candles way before they’re released and she has a bunch of this collection already! Sadly she says that the Black Cherry Merlot is not quite like the soaps. 🙁

      Thanks Joanna! will check her out. Oh BOOO! that sucks!

  • Irene Michalski

    Why do they keep advertising for the sparkling reisling pear candle and never have it?? And why when irs in such high demand did they stop making it. ?? Dont make any sense. And Iam not happy…
