I’ll Take You to the Bath & Body Works Sweet Shoppe and Buy Candles With You!

It’s been about two or three seasons since Bath & Body Works launched their Sweet Shoppe Candles and I’m happy to report they are back for the Spring 2018 season. I actually missed most of these on the original launch.

What?! How? Who! You did!? Yes, I did. I was waiting on a good sale and I felt like, “Meh these will be around for a while! I can wait for a good sale to buy them.” and somehow time got away with me and they disappeared before I could get my hands on them.

Oh woe is me. I do so regret not getting them as the constant ravings about Lavender Marshmallow haunt me to this very day.

Now I can get them all and they are on sale too. I suspect, don’t quote me, that the Sweet Shoppe return is simply happening during the semi-annual sale. Why? Because these have been on sale since they popped back up on the Bath & Body Works website and there are in fact a few new Spring 2018 candles but those are full-size. That sucks because I do so miss the days of old when Bath & Body Works did cute collections. I wouldn’t mind if Bath & Body Works changed into a A l’Etoile d’Or for Spring 2018 and launched an entire range of delicious candy scents (and pastry ones too)! P.S. If you’ve never been to A l’Etoile d’Or please make sure you visit on your next trip to France!

Bath & Body Works has been remiss lately. First the dismal Fall Collection, than the fact Twisted Peppermint Fragrance Mist wasn’t available, and now a return of Sweet Shoppe simply for the semi-annual sale. Come on guys, you can do better.

But I’ll take what I can get and I’ll haul all of these yummy scents (actually, I already did!) but please, give us more of the things we love in the future. I don’t want to be taken to Hawaii this Spring! Take me to a fine pastry or a decadent chocolate and candy shop.

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.

    Yes! I bought two the other day when they were on sale for $10 and I already got the Bubblegum one during candle day (when it was called #GirlGang).

    Yea, I bought the hell out of candles and other goodies on the first day of the SAS. I spent over $500.00 and I and darn proud of it. And I used a 20% off coupon. I got 40 candles and I don’t know even know how many body creams, shimmer sprays, body sprays and shower gels. All I know is I can’t wait for my 5 boxes to get here. And, I have no shame. Thank you very much.

    P.S. I recommend the Lavender Marshmallow. Omg!

    I was so upset about Twisted Peppermint! My stores barely got ANY shower gel in that silly two-in-one. I got the last one and I paid full price because I was desperate ($18.50!). Then they did that one-day release thing and my store only had one normal gel left. I did manage to get two sprays and some body creams…but good lord. Why would you change it if it wasn’t broken?!
    As for the candles (my latest obsession), I only got the Strawberry Sorbet (though I do have Bubblegum in the Girl Gang form). They are so beautiful but not my scents!

    Raspberry Peach Macaron is my absolute favorite non-fall/winter candle they have ever done. Grabbed that along with a pack of the honey soaps, and a delightful-sounding Summer Marshmallow spray and cream. I miss the good old days of the amazing deals for SAS, but I did score this stuff with a 20% off code online.
