Bath & Body Works Fall 2018 Candles Arrive

I somehow was able to resist purchasing the new Bath & Body Works Fall 2018 Candles when they popped up on sale this weekend. I thought I’d wait just a little longer for perhaps a better sale and for more stuff to launch since I’m not currently in love with the labels. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve purchased as soon as they launch only to kick myself later because they have cuter labels as we get closer to Fall. I’m also less than thrilled with the get $10 off candle sale. The candles have been going up and up in price the last few years and I do so miss the days of 2 for $20.

There are a lot of reruns here but there are also a few new scents that might catch your attention.

Here’s a peek!

I see a lot of repetitive fragrances but I get why they keep bringing these back year after year as they are fan favorites. I mean I’d be crushed if Marshmallow Fireside didn’t return but I also feel like, “Damn, can’t they do something new?”

Here’s what’s available!

  • Pumpkin Peanut Brittle (Crunchy Caramel Brittle, Salty Peanuts, Toasted Pumpkin Seeds)
  • Blueberry Maple Pancakes (Wild Blueberries, Griddle Fresh Pancakes, Warm Maple Syrup)
  • Bourbon Pumpkin (Bourbon Soaked Pumpkin, Maple Brown Sugar Drizzle, Cinnamon)
  • Campfire Pumpkin (Fall Pumpkin, Nutmeg, Vanilla Bean, Smoky Cinnamon)
  • Pumpkin Coconut (Spiced Pumpkin, Toasted Coconut, Creamy Vanilla, Sea Salted Caramel)
  • Pumpkin Cupcake (Whipped Buttercream, Madagascar Vanilla, Pumpkin Spice, Freshly Baked Cupcake)
  • Vanilla Pumpkin Marshmallow (Creamy Vanilla, Pumpkin Spice, Homemade Marshmallow, Drizzled Caramel)
  • Caramel Pumpkin Swirl (Luscious Caramel, Ground Cinnamon, Rich Brown Sugar, Creamy Vanilla)
  • Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin (Warm Cinnamon, Fresh Ground Clove, Vanilla Cream, Brown Sugar)
  • Pumpkin Apple (Red Delicious Apple, Fall Pumpkin, Fresh Ground Cinnamon, Clove Buds)
  • Pumpkin Pecan Waffles (Maple Syrup, Golden Waffles, Pumpkin Spice, Brown Sugar)
  • Pumpkin Patch (Bright Orange Pumpkin, Autumn Spice Blend, Rich Molasses)
  • Caramel Apple (Granny Smith Apple Slices, Warm Golden Caramel, Cinnamon Vanilla Cream)
  • Autumn Woods (Dark Walnut, English Lavender, White Amber)
  • Autumn Day (Crisp Red Apple, Green Fig, White Birch, Cedar)
  • Sweater Weather (Fresh Sage, Juniper Berry, Aromatic Eucalyptus, Fresh Woods)
  • Autumn (Bright Red Gala Apple, Juicy Fig, Eucalyptus Leaf, Fir Balsam)
  • The Perfect Autumn (Fresh Cranberry, Spiced Pumpkin, Crisp Apple, Rich Clove)
  • Flannel (Fresh Bergamot, Heirloom Mahogany and Soft Musk)
  • Leaves (Crisp Red Apple, Golden Nectar, Warm Clove Spice)
  • Marshmallow Fireside (Toasted Marshmallow, Smoldering Woods, Fire Roasted Vanilla, Crystallized Amber)
  • Hot Cocoa & Cream (Decadent Milk Chocolate, Fresh Steamed Milk, Mini Marshmallows)

Right now the one that interests me the most is Pumpkin Peanut Brittle! I haven’t seen it in stores yet and I’m looking forward to smelling it. Bourbon Pumpkin looks good too!

    I love scented candles, but the last thing I need in my house is a scent that will make me hungry! Hot Cocoa & Cream? That candle would just be mocking me!! 😉

    But a few of these, like Sweater Weather, sound like something I might like to own.

    • Carla

      The Cocoa and Cream is AMAZING. It’s actually a repeat and I love it so much that I bought backups last year 🙂

      • Isabella Muse

        ITA! I have the one from Christmas and always regret not buying more! Glad it’s back!

      • Erin

        I second this. It smells SO. GOOD.

        Definitely not what I was expecting when I burned it.

  • Kish

    I wish they would stop renaming things and saying they are new, it’s so confusing. But Sweater Weather, Leaves, and Autumn are three of my favorites. I didn’t buy yet, but I will.

    Oh, I ordered from the eBay seller you use and got the Etude House Trenchcoat palette! And a bunch of skincare. I couldn’t believe how fast the shipping was! Thanks for the rec

    • Isabella Muse

      ITA! And I hate the name labels. “Happy Fall!” “Squad Goals!” etc it’s dumb. Just give me a cute label! YAY! ;-D I’m glad you got it so quickly! Enjoy!

  • kjh

    They do a second run of labels with different imagery? WTF, no wonder they are pricey and the consumer is confused. Not sure that sweater weather, etc would be an improvement on Yankee Silver Birch and Mountain Lodge. All the BBW spray scents have a detectable common ingredient, something in the base, that makes them smell real similar to me. That scent comes through to me stronger than the actual fragrance notes. Kind of afraid the candles would be the same.

    • Isabella Muse

      They do indeed! Sometimes three times over! It’s a nice masculine minty scent! I haven’t smelled Yankee’s Mountain lodge or silver birch so can’t compare!

  • Kim M

    Any idea if these are in stores yet? I really want to smell Bourbon Pumpkin!!

    • Isabella Muse

      white barn has a lot of them but I didn’t come across the peanut brittle one! I did come across most of the rest. But I did visit a stand alone BBW in the mall on Sunday and they didn’t have these yet! BBW did send an email though on Saturday saying in stores and online for Fall so guess it depends! 🙂

      • Kim M

        OK good to know! Really appreciate your response! Also thank you for loving fall, I am really digging these updates!

        • Isabella Muse

          My pleasure! 🙂 YAY! ;-D I’m glad to hear it! More to come!

    Pumpkin Patch is a returning Slatkin for BBW era scent. It was also had a few other names I believe like Pumpkin Carving. I haven’t seen it in a while though. It is one of the best pumpkin scents in my opinion. I can’t do very sweet scents and have enjoyed this in the past since it isn’t too sweet and cloying. I bought it already and am waiting till autumn to burn it, but I’ve been smelling it once in a while and wishing it was fall. I don’t want to rush time, but I can’t stand very hot humid summer weather. I’d be crushed if they didn’t bring back The Autumn candle. I burn it every September.

  • Paige

    The Flannel one sounds really nice. I like the idea.

    This may be a dumb question, but, for all the pumpkin ones, do they smell like frosting or caramel or whatever plus cinnamon? Pumpkin isn’t really a strong odor or flavor, so what makes all the pumpkin ones smell distinctively pumpkin?

    Boy, you type that word a few times too many and it starts to lose meaning, doesn’t it? Forgive me. I am having a loopy Monday.

    I have another question. What is the scent throw like on these candles in your opinion? Not that I should be eyeing candles. I take forever to get through a candle and I have an ongoing one and backups. But a girl can dream…

    • Isabella Muse

      Depends on which one you’re looking at. The pumpkin cupcake has a spice cake-like scent! The caramel pumpkin one smells like cinnamon and caramel. Hopefully this makes sense. Depends also on the throw. I find their fall stuff is scented very well! Any of the pumpkin candles always scent up an entire room and have a lasting fragrance. Smells like I’ve been baking or something! Get ’em when they are on sale. They do $10 candle days or $10 off candles or sometimes 2 for $15 etc…! 🙂

        • Isabella Muse

          aw my pleasure! I look forward to the BBW fall candle launch every year ;-D they just smell so gooooddd!

  • Christi

    Thank you so much for posting this. I am beyond excited for the new pumpkin scents coming up! I picked up sweet cinnamon pumpkin soap, crisp morning air, & Pumpkin apple at my local store yesterday. They didn’t have any of those candles yet, but I can’t wait!

    • Isabella Muse

      oh my pleasure it’s always nice it gets such good feedback as I love Fall and always nice to share it with others ;-D Yay! Enjoy!

  • Carolina

    After last year’s less than stellar Fall scents from Bath and Bodyworks, I am actually excited about this year’s offerings. The return of Pumpkin Carving is a great move by the company. That has long been one of my favorites. I’ll see what body scents and products they will roll out for the best time of the year!

  • Jess

    I used to light candles ALL THE TIME and then one day out of nowhere, a BBW candle starting shooting flames up at least 12 inches high. I thought my house was going to burn down! Fortunately I was in the room when it happened and was able to put it out asap but I’ve had a fear of lighting candles since that day. I did buy a candle warmer to use instead but now Im also afraid to use that too. I miss my BBW candles. Leaves was my favorite but I just cant bring myslef to light one again.

    • Isabella Muse

      Do you trim your wicks? That could be the issue! if you aren’t trimming the wicks and you have a rather large mushroom head wick it could be a fire hazard when you relight it.

  • Carol G

    I agree, Muse, I don’t like these labels either. That’s the first thing I noticed when I scrolled through the email I got about these. I, too, will wait for a better sale and better labels. However the fall candles are my favorite but I don’t want to rush summer along either. So I will be patient for now.

    • Isabella Muse

      I can’t believe I mustered up any patience as I’m always jumping right on Fall 😀

  • Kristen

    don’t sleep on pumpkin peanut brittle when you finally spot it in stores! it’s amazing and selling quickly i hear!

    • Carla

      I was disappointed by it, sadly. I didn’t think it smelled like pumpkin OR peanut brittle :(.

  • Carla

    Not candle-related, but Muse–have you smelled the new Juicy Couture Oui fragrance for Fall? Since you seem to like the Juicy line I thought I’d see what you thought of it (if you’d tried it yet). I finally tracked it down in my local Macy’s today but was a little disappointed.

    • Isabella Muse

      I haven’t. I was going to bind buy it but decided to wait. I do so have a love/hate relationship with juicy. Sometimes their scents seem to all run together and smell exactly the same 🙁

  • Kel Habicht

    i hate sweet cinnimon pumpkin and wish it would disappear. i bought a caramel pumpkin swirl room scenter this weekend but they didn’t have anything there so i could smell it so not sure what it is like yet. i’m curious too about the pumpkin peanut! also want to smell the pumpkin coconut, campfire pumpkin, pumpkin cupcake, vanilla pumpkin marshmallow, pumpkin pecan waffles and pumpkin patch. i’m more into an authentic pumpkin scent and very particular so i have a lot of sniffing to do! they didn’t have any of these when i was at tysons in VA this past weekend.

  • Erin

    Pumpkin Patch is the return of Pumpkin Carving I’ve been waiting for. I plan on hoarding as many as I can humanly stash. I promised myself I wouldn’t buy more than enough I’d need to get me to next year but the “what if” scenarios playing out with the scents they brought back this year that I am obsessed with, well … you know BBW just as well as I do.

    It goes without saying, Pumpkin Patch is a stock up. Pumpkin Pecan Waffles is a household fave, and then I will definitely buy extras of White Pumpkin, Bourbon Pumpkin, Pumpkin Donut Shop and Campfire Pumpkin. They bring Marshmallow Fireside back every year, so no need for extras on those.

    I love fall.

  • Tara

    I picked up 8 of the new Fall, 3 wick candles during the “Buy 2, Get 2” sale a couple of weeks ago and am kicking myself that I didn’t get more! Bath and Body Works is being very tight lipped on social media about the possibility of a future sale. Does anyone have any idea when another one might be, based on previous years? I’m brand new to buying candles and now I’m obsessed with them!

    • Isabella Muse

      They have sales quite often. I’d say every two weeks candles are on sale. I doubt they’ll do another buy 2, get 2 sale but they’ll be $10 off candles or 2/$24 sales a plenty coming down the line! I’m sure by the middle of the month candles will be back on sale again!

      • Tara

        Oh awesome! Thanks, Muse. Now that I’ve discovered them, I’ve developed a bit of an addiction..haha.

        • Isabella Muse

          I KNOW the feeling well ;-D They are often on sale though! Don’t worry 😀

  • carmen medina

    when is the $8 candle sale. does this mean they wont have sugared blueberry????
