Bath & Body Works Hot Cocoa & Cream Fine Fragrance Mist Is Coming and Yes, It Smells Like the Candle

Bath & Body Works Hot Cocoa & Cream Fine Fragrance Mist and body care is on the horizon for Holiday 2018 and according to reports it does smell exactly like the candle! As you know earlier last month I talked to you about Sweater Weather, another popular Bath & Body Works Candle, was being launched in a fragrance and body care collection. Needless to say it was a rather disappointing release since it smells NOTHING like the candle.


Well, it appears Bath & Body Works is finally listening to candle lovers who have asked for some of their favorite candles to be available in body care as for the Holidays they are making yet another popular candle into a fragrance and body care line! I have to admit I’m excited about this.

For the record, I used to hate chocolate fragrances but as I’ve gotten older I started appreciating them more and more. I hauled a bunch of chocolate-y scents from Lathers and Lights during Valentine’s Day and they are just so damn delicious and they smell so sexy! So, yup, I’m all about hot chocolate anything at the moment. Bring it on!

Will you be trying out Bath & Body Hot Cocoa & Cream?

Do you have the candle?

Do share!


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 love the candle and get several every year. But this is one fragrance I wouldn’t wear!

  • Jess

    I don’t own this one. Do you know if it smells like Yankee Chocolate Cake? Thanks.

    • Isabella Muse

      I’m not sure I never smelled yankee chocolate cake. If it helps at all…it’s a creamy chocolate with hints of vanilla. Very hot chocolate-like but not overly chocolate-y if that makes sense!

    • Ashley

      I have both, they are somewhat different. Yankee is known for authentic fragrances, and Chocolate layer cake is much more decadent, like a rich, sinful hunk of chocolate cake (best way I know how to describe it). BBW is creamier like Isabella said, more milky chocolate, it smells like hot cocoa warming on the stove. I melt my candles instead of burn, and both make the apartment smell SO good!

  • Audrey

    The candle is my favorite scent, and I’ve been hoping they’d come out with a body care line for it. I’m so excited! I hope they don’t mess up with the scent *fingers crossed*

  • Ashley

    I pray I pray I pray that this smells EXACTLY like the candle cause it is heavenly! Chocolate is a hard fragrance to get right, and I really want this in a cream, lotion and body wash. I just got this philosophy set with a “hot cocoa” mini wash and lotion, which smells nothing like chocolate. Actually, it doesn’t smell like anything at all, I’m absolutely bewildered. I stock up on the hot cocoa and cream candles and wallflowers, because this is one of those fragrances I would march to BBW headquarters and protest if they ever dare discontinue. Chocolate is therapy, and smelling it is no different.

    • Isabella Muse

      according to instagram reports it does I hope that’s true ;-D LOL I love that! Chocolate is a therapy ;D

  • Tennille

    I’m excited about this! I hope it smells exactly like the candle. I have several of these candles. I hope the line comes out soon. Do you know an approximate date?

    • Isabella Muse

      Apparently it does. I don’t sadly. maybe mid to end october? Some test stores have it already!

  • Sakura

    Oh thanks for letting us know! I definitely want to pick this up and will be be checking bbw web-site until it launches.

  • Paige

    The best chocolate fragrance I can think of was the Tokyo Milk Bittersweet, now sadly discontinued. Most chocolate fragrances are kind of fake smelling and I’m always disappointed.

  • Michelle Miller

    I actually got to smell it! I was talking to the salesperson about how great the coco candles smell and she pulled out the body mist, YUM. Another salesperson stepped in and said it’s not out for sale yet. I can’t wait, it is delicious!!

  • Traci

    It is supposed to be out on November 19th according to a store manager! Im so excited!
