I’m in Love with Bath & Body Works Boardwalk Marshmallow Clouds

5 stars out of 5

Bath & Body Works Boardwalk Marshmallow Clouds is a new Summer 2018 fragrance available in the Fine Fragrance Mist formula as well as the regular round up of shower gel, body lotion, etc….! I’m likely so attracted to this blend because it reminds me a little bit of scents like Bath & Body Works Vanilla Bean and Beach Nights. Some people have gone so far as to call it a dupe of Beach Nights but although smells similar it still manages to stand happily on its own two legs.

Bath & Body Works fragrances are a constant repetitive circle of scents (even in candles lately!) but sometimes I’ll run across something that sticks out for me and Boardwalk Marshmallow Clouds is one of those scents that sticks out for me.

According to the brand the notes include candied whipped vanilla, marshmallow meringue, white magnolia & fluffy sandalwood. I feel like for once that’s a fairly accurate description of the scent. It smells like a really sophisticated marshmallow gourmand to my nose with each note playing an important role in the final dry down.

During the first misting, wet on my skin, I get a sweet, sugary blend of vanilla as it dries down fluffy marshmallow comes into play and the scent goes all gooey and warm. Within a few minutes you can smell the faintest hint of white magnolia with a beautiful sandalwood note that blends perfectly with the vanilla and marshmallow creating a cozy, warm feel.

This is such a weird fragrance because when I smell it I really do think of the boardwalk, fluffy clouds of cotton candy, dripping vanilla ice cream on big waffle cones. Yet at the same time it also reminds me of Winter and sitting by the fire wrapped in a blanket eating toasted marshmallows. It’s such a yummy little scent! Sadly, as with most of their scents this sort of fades away quickly but I do layer which does help it to stick around a lot longer!

I think I’ll likely grab up backups of this! I actually wish they’d keep it around as a permanent part of their collection because it smells so lovely!

Do grab it!

Muse Approved!

Anyone try it and love it as much as I do!?

I purchased this item.

    I have to grab this. How is the spray mist? Is it long lasting? Thanks. Muse.


    Hello Isabella, though I am an old reader of your blog, but commenting for the first time. I love the way you write and inform your readers. Never have tried Bath and Body Works, but would love to try soon..:)))

    • Isabella Muse

      aw thank you so so so much Soma! Your feedback means the world to me!

  • Andrea Vecchione

    This sounds nice, but the description of Lovely Dreamer really caught my eye. I’m liking the shape of the bottle too.

  • Michele

    I just purchased the lotion last night, and I’m in love! I’m really lucky that it was on sale for only $7. I hope they keep it around for a bit!!!!

  • Nicole

    I love this scent! I bought the Aqua Cool aloe lotion for this summer after the pool. I only wish they had this scent in the body wash too.

    • Isabella Muse

      I got that too! I love it ;-D good formula, absorbs fast!

  • Janessa

    Damn it, I don’t need this nonsense in my life, but jeebus this sounds like it smells right up my alley πŸ˜‰ Gonna have to peek over to BBW and see whats up.

      • Janessa

        SOooo I made a special trip to the mall over the weekend just to smell this, and I left with 3 bottles of body cream and 2 sprays -_- . Its SOOOO good! So good! Hands down one of the best seasonal scents they’ve come out with in a long time.

  • Maria

    Muse. You encouraged me to buy the marshmallow clouds. I bought that and other full size lotions from website. There are full size lotions for $3.00 also on sale.

    • Isabella Muse

      yay! let me know what you think! NICE! gotta head over there and peek ;-D

  • misty

    Ohhh Isabella, you’re killin’ me over here! This sounds so yummy and irresistible!
    BUT I have to make a decision… and naturally I trust you, (because secretly we are long lost bffs, dontcha know!? -sidenote, maybe we’re long lost cousins… my grandma was a gorgeous Portuguese woman and you so remind me of her in pics of her youth!, but that’s a whole nother story )
    Aaaaanyways…. I’ve been going back and forth, coming thisclose to biting the bullet on philosophy fresh cream warm cashmere… and your mention of it yesterday is tipping me over the edge… BUT… now I’m reading about this magical marshmallow one and… WHAT TO DO!?! Which do you think is better or more worth the purchase? I know the price variance, but thats not what I’m basing my decision on here. I’m more concerned with not getting something thats too dupey or excess, since my mom recently gifted me Philosophy Fresh Cream (the regular/OG version) and I have that body spritz just sitting.
    I’ve read random one off product reviews from strangers (whose noses I just don’t trust and they sounded pretty curmudgeony anyway) who say that PFCwarm cashmere is overpriced dupe of BBW vanilla bean and I figured I’d check with you, since I do trust your nose and sensibilities. I have a feeling their reviews (on the qvc site) is just because they had different/uninformed expectations of what warm cashmere should smell like or they just aren’t into gourmands at all, which isn’t a fair review.
    So pleeeease help me… do I need this marshmallow wizardry in y life, or should I seriously just go for it and get the warm cashmere to satisfy my bourgeoisie gourmand yummy craving?!?

    Love ya, love the site update and thank you for making my day and breaking my wallet!

    • Isabella Muse

      LOL misty your comment made me smile so much! ;-D I’d love to see pics of your grandma one day if you’d like to share ;-D I didn’t feel like warm cashmere smelled like BBW vanila Bean I think the wear time is way better as well compared to BBW! If you want longer wear, I’d go with Philosophy! It seems like it wears longer on me and the addition of the body cream makes it project even better. Honestly, at BBW pries and with so many sales you can likely get it for a steal and still have money left over for Philosophy too! ;-D I hope this helps!? OMG I think I made it worst and convinced you to buy two scents! lol! Ok let me backtrack! I’d go with the Philosophy! At least you don’t have to worry about falling in love with and never finding it again (Boardwalk Marshmallow Clouds is LE)

  • Pat Ehrlich

    I am in full fall mode. I’ve been checking out Bath and Body Works, Kohls Sonoma, Yankee Candle, and Homeworx on QVC. Even saw BBW has some Halloween stuff out too.
    Fall is so delish ! Love it !

  • Jessica K

    Being obsessed with marshmallow-scented things, I took your recommendation and bought the spray today! I am not disappointed- this is a sweet but really lovely everyday scent. Thank you!

  • Sammy

    Ah I would love to try this out! But I don’t think it’s possible to get Bath and Bodyworks in the UK, is it?

    • Isabella Muse

      Sadly not unless you ask a friend or use some sort of shipping service.

  • Kathryn

    I had bought an Ultra Shea cream in this scent, but just picked up a backup of the cream as well as full-size AND travel-size body sprays. I am not normally much of a B&BW girl, but this one is so nice – it’s gourmand/sweet without being too foody/cloying and it plays nicely with so many other scents!

    • Maria

      I just both this today at BBW annual sale and the Ultra Body Cream is YELLOW. Is it supposed to be yellow? Or did it go bad? Thanks!

  • Jamie Clardy

    This is one of my faves too! Hope this isn’t TMI, but I even spray it on a cotton ball and stick it in my bra so I can get more wear time out of it. I’d kill for a shampoo in this scent.

  • Maria

    Quick question: I just purchased the shea body cream (not the lotion) in this scent during the semi-annual sale. Is the cream supposed to be yellow? Just want to make sure it isn’t going bad. Thanks!

    • Isabella Muse

      I actually don’t have anymore left sadly. BUT I think it was yellow! Safe bet with BBW if it smells off, it is off! But if smells fine it should be good to go! Their body creams/lotions smell rancid when they expire. Like really old smelling!

    • Jessica Noe

      Mine was yellow as well, so I’m pretty sure it’s par for the course with the Ultra Shea Body Cream. πŸ™‚

  • Traci Moreland

    I love it too and they no longer have it. I found it on amazon and eBay but of course they are charging way too much. It’s sad.

  • Jessica Noe

    I love this scent so much! It is by far my favorite that Bath and Body Works has ever released! I wish they hadn’t discontinued it.

    • Isabella Muse

      It’s been discontinued but if they bring it back it will be available at Bath and Body Works stores or their online website.
