Homeworx Ice Cream Candles Arrive Today

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

As you know sometimes I like to blather home fragrance on my site and I know for a fact that many of you like myself are madly obsessed with candles from Bath & Body Works.

Sometime ago, in a land not so far away, Slatkin & Co. was a home fragrance company that was started by Harry Slatkin which Bath & Body Works’ purchased. You likely have a candle or a hundred that have the Slatkin & Co label on them that you purchased from Bath & Body Works. Don’t quote me but I think Harry had some creative control over the candles after the purchase of the company as most hardcore candle users will tell you that back in those days the candles you purchased at BBW were way better than the ones you purchase from them now. I do agree on some level.

None the less, this backstory is what brings me to Homeworx which Harry sells on QVC and which I HOPE and pray he brings to another medium because I hate paying for shipping.

The new line of candles is incredible. I’ve purchased two so far and they are so very well done. They are a whooping 18 oz (Bath & Body Works’ are 14.5 oz) in size and have three wicks. They come in very heavy glass jars which you can reuse well after the candle burns down. Not to mention they smell incredible and have fantastic throw.

With Bath & Body Works having far from good deals on their candles lately these are actually an incredible value at $39.90 for two (sadly, you do have to pay $5.50 for shipping which is more than fair considering the heavy weight of the candles).

Today, Harry is debuting a Today’s Special Value on QVC which I didn’t haul but he also debuted his new Ice Cream candles and after hearing and seeing all the ravings on Instagram I decided to haul all four!

These are sold in sets which are paired up as follows:

  • Mint Chocolate Chip/Oooey Gooey Salted Caramel
  • Creamy Dreamy Vanilla/Fantastic Fudge

Although these sound like one note candles they aren’t from what some of my fav candle bloggers/Instagrammers are saying. For example, Fantastic Fudge apparently has notes of espresso! Oh heck yes! Sign me up!

I’m very eager to try these!

Get them now at qvc.com.

Have you tried Homeworx yet?

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’m a big fan of the four Homeworx candles that I have (two from fall and two from spring). I really want the TSV and ice cream figural candles that were released today.

    • Isabella Muse

      I stupidly didn’t get any of the Fall ones! But ended up hauling the Spring ones and love them so much ;-D I didn’t want the TSV in all honesty, just didn’t appeal, but I did order all four of these ;-D bad I know but I had to have them 😀

    Yummy scented candles make me want to eat everything sweet in my line of sight. So I stay away from them. Just looking at these makes me want to find some chocolate 🙂

    Ohhhh! And the TSV has the easy pay option! I’m a sucker for QVC’s Easy Pay and HSN’s FlexPay.
    I’ve purchased many B&BW candles over time, but my 49-yr-old brain can’t remember if any were from Harry Slatkin. Surely a few of them were…
    Thank you for this 🙂

    • Isabella Muse

      Likewise! Makes me feel better about spending $$ lol! My pleasure! enjoy!

    I’ve never heard of Homeworx, but I am super duper excited to hear that there is a viable alternative to the BBW candles. I used to buy them like crazy, but I have been let down one too many times over the last couple of years by the price hikes and corresponding drop in quality. As much as it breaks my heart to say it, BBW is just not what it used to be even 3-4 years ago.

    • Isabella Muse

      it’s relatively new 😉 I agree! I think it even goes further back than 4 years!

    I have tried Homeworx Harvest Leaves and Autumn Pumpkins. I am excited for his fall lineup 2018 – and whatever he previews during Christmas in July on QVC. Hey, that is just a week or two away!

    • Isabella Muse

      I am very much looking forward to Fall 2018 and the preview in July ;-D Christmas isn’t my favorite but I’ll be running for Fall scents!
