Slatkin & Co, Bath & Body Works Candles - Review



I have seen numerous reviews and mentions of Slatkin & Co candles from various
people most of which have been American but with the power of eBay you can pretty much
find anything nowadays for a reasonable price and just wait for good ol' Mr Postie
to deliver the goods.

With us now being in the midst of Autumn in the U.K I have been on the look out for some warming 
scents that don't go down the spice route - i'm not all that fussy when it comes to scents but I loathe
anything that is heavy on spice notes or cinnamon for that matter so with that in mind,
I purchased Slatkin & Co scented candle in Leaves and a Bath & Body Works Candle in Cafe Au Latte.
To the best of my knowledge Slatkin & Co is the brand that manufactures all Bath & Body Works
scented candles but feel free to dig me up in the comments if that is in fact wrong.

Leaves is the prefect Autumn candle scent in my opinion, it is officially listed as a "Rich blend of golden
nectar, red apple and berries.", I have no idea what golden nectar smells like or what it is (maple syrup?)
but you can most definitely detect the red apple note which is bright and crisp and combined with the berry 
notes you have a delicious yet warm scent that is perfect for burning on a chilly night.

Cafe Au Latte is a rather odd choice for myself as I loathe both tea and coffee but the description
of this scent had me hooked from the get go "Warm caramel, brown sugar and creamy vanilla",
doesn't that just sound good enough to eat?
It is an indulgent treat that is sweet yet has plenty of warmth to the scent due to notes of caramel
and brown sugar, if you like cupcake scents but desire something a little more-ish for the cooler
months this is certainly one to look into.

I have only bought the mini candles as I have never tried Slatkin & Co candles before
but I do have to say that I am hooked, they burn well are highly scented and are something 
I will go back for more and when I visit the states next year I will be loading up on full sized versions.

I bought these from eBay for £5.84 each using this seller - link

  1. Great post!!! I was eyeing BBW candles for ages. I also like about them that they are made from vegetable wax and have lead-free wicks. I wish they were more more accessible outside the United States.

  5. I really really want some from Bath and Body Works, and have searched endlessly on ebay but to no avail of price friendly things in both the UK or America! From the American sellers the converted price is fairly cheap but 9 out of 10 times the postage is ridiculous! I've seen the leaves candle before but thought it would not appeal, but after now reading the actual description is sounds delish! xx

    1. I know what you mean :( sadly we do get hammered in p&p, this seller is fairly reasonable but it does still work out at £5 (p&p included) per candle.

  6. These are the most wonderful candles! Every once in a while BBW runs 2/$20 for their 3-wick candles and I always stock up!! You will always find one of these candles burning in my home.

  13. There were rumours of BBW coming to the UK after Banana Republic opened up (all part of the same group) and there was even a site mentioned on Regents St in London but alas it hasn't happened yet. There used to be three shops in the UK, I ordered a few things from the one in Edinburgh but all three have long closed now, such a shame as so many of their products are just fab!!
    I have to buy the Peppermint Twist 3 in 1 product every Christmas, it smells like candy canes and it gets me in the Christmas spirit, even in Australia when it's 30C on Christmas Day!!

  14. My nearest BBW is like 6 hours away :( I wanted to order some candles this week, but the postage came to 20$.... So I'll wait!

  15. I keep saying I wish B&BW would open in the UK, I recently bought some bits from this site http://www.bathandbodyshop.co.uk/Shop/Bath-AND-Body-Works.html their post was fast but for the slatkin stuff it was around £4 for the mini candles :-( however they do the pocket bacs at a good price which I stocked up on.

    They brought forever 21 over here so here's hoping! x
