Bath & Body Works Halloween 2017 Candles Launch

The Bath & Body Works Halloween 2017 Candle selections are starting to pop up and I’m starting the feel the need to hoard because “OMG CUTE LABELS”!

Sadly, the fragrances are a bit blah! They have a Happy Halloween Candle which is scented like Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin and Vampire Blood which is a blend red strawberry, jasmine, and plum. I’m one of those people that really isn’t a big fan of Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin and Vampire Blood is a scent they commonly do in hand soap. It’s all a bit boring. I wish they’d do some funkier scents for Halloween.

Not that anyone is asking me BUT if I were on the creative control board for Bath & Body Works Candles I’d do scents like candy corn mixed with marshmallow, caramel apple with smoky bonfire notes, apple cider and clove, a bag full of candy with notes of fruity hard starburst mixed with the scents of snack size Snickers, M&M’s, and Twix.

Sadly, that never happens! But I’m obsessed and want these for the labels. They’ll look cute nestled in with my Yankee Candle Boney Bunch display I guess!

I truly do appreciate Bath & Body Works going all out for Halloween but I wish wish they’d stop recycling and start creating some new, unique items for the Holiday and Fall season!

Bath & Body Works Halloween 2017 Candles are available now on their site and launching soon in stores.


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.

    OH my gosh!!! I’ve always wanted them to do a “bag full of candy” scent! It’s so distinct and unique! We should definitely be on their creative board lol….this is really disappointing.

    • Isabella Muse

      Lathers n Lights has one during Halloween! I swear it smells exactly like a bag of candy! You get that fruity element from candies like starburst and chocolate ones mixed with candy corn 😀

      • Amy

        Yes! That’s it exactly! Just visited Lathers n Lights site and they have a ton of Halloween scents. I’ll have one of each, please.

        • Isabella Muse

          OMG I didn’t know she had them live YESSSSSSSSSSSS! I thought she would get them up at the end of the month 😀

          • Amy

            I don’t know that they’re live. I just found a list of the categories and fragrances. I only took a quick look… but if you find the name of the one you were talking about, I’d love to know.

          • Isabella Muse

            they are live 🙂 The list was Summer just a few days ago now she has the entire Fall line up! 😀 I’ll look and see if she brought it back and let ya know 😀

    The best Halloween candle BBW had was the Trick or Treat candle from 2014. It smelled like a cross between a toasted marshmallow and a bonfire. I also wish they would come up with some new ideas. I still miss the Halloween Hand lotions from even further back. Then again, I miss Philosophy’s Halloween and fall items too.

      • Amy

        Yeah! What happened to Philosophy? They used to have so many really fun scents. I have a bottle of Autumn Air that I am using very sparingly. Plus a few unopened bottles – Dazzling Diamonds, Ravishing Rubies and Live.

    If you’re looking for smiley bonfire meets marshmellow try Marshmellow Fireside.

    • Isabella Muse

      Yeah, I know, got about twenty of them hoarded away 🙂 My idea was caramel apple, marshmallow, and smoky bonfire notes 😀

  • Ashley

    Ahh! I emailed them hoping they would bring back Trick or Treat! There’s one on eBay right now for $35 that’s looking tempting lol

    • Isabella Muse

      WAIT! Maybe they will 🙂 They are slowing trickling out the halloween stuff!

        • Isabella Muse

          No, Trick or Treat is the Bath and Body Works candle one! I can’t seem to find the bag of candy one! Still searching :)!

    • Isabella Muse
