Bath & Body Works Bonfire Bash does not smell like Marshmallow Fireside contrary to reviews I’ve read and what reps are saying in store. But guess what? It still smells mighty good!
Who’s all about cozy Fall scents?
Bath & Body Works Bonefire Bash delivers cozy warmth for Autumn!
I’d like to see I haven’t quite reached a stage in my Bath & Body life that their marshmallow vanilla blends are getting tired yet. Over the course of the last several months we have seen a lot of different variations of Beach Nights including Vanilla Bean that launched during the Semi-Annual Sale and the more recent Boardwalk Marshmallow Clouds.
I do think their latest Fall 2018 fragrance, Bonfire Bash, belongs in the category of those scents since it smells so much like them!
Beach Nights was definitely a fragrance that gave birth to many of Bath & Body Works current marshmallow fragrances in their body line in my humble opinion. With the success of Marshmallow Fireside one has to wonder why they waited so long to do fragrances in their body line like this but who knows with the weird marketing at Bath & Body Works what they might be thinking.
Most people I’ve spoken to and what I’ve read on the Internet are comparing Bonfire Bash to Marshmallow Fireside and I get the similarities I just don’t think they smell identical to each other though. That doesn’t mean this doesn’t smell divine, it does. But it isn’t quite Marshmallow Fireside!
If I had to pick one scent to pick up for Fall at Bath & Body Works this would be it. It’s one of the better ones that launched this year! Way nicer and way stronger than the really weak offering that is Sweater Weather.
They don’t list the notes on the bottle just the inspiration which are toasted marshmallow, cracking campfires, and cozy flannels. To my nose it smells like a warm toasty marshmallow right out of the bottle with a hint of spicy warm vanilla. Those notes are the ones that are retained throughout the wear! It seems to have the same middle, heart, and base notes of toasted marshmallow and a touch of spicy vanilla. Nothing changes as it dries down and I’m completely fine with that as I like these notes a lot. It smells like a warm gooey marshmallow!
I think it’s a must buy for anyone who loved Beach Nights and the recent Boardwalk Marshmallow Clouds. It’s also a scent I’d consider stocking up on if you like warm, comforting gourmands! It’s a shame the scent isn’t all that long-wearing but layering does help!
