Top Favorite BBW Scents

When it comes to BBW candles/bulbs, I pick them as I do my colognes/body sprays or air fresheners. I avoid sickeningly sweet scents or spicy cinnamon type scents (except during fall and winter) I like scents that smell fresh and clean; air, rain, water, ocean etc. Same goes with candles.


I hate hate HATE candles that smell like food, especially bakery scents..ugh, makes me sick to my stomach. I also avoid what I call the "girly girl scents"...overly floral/perfumey and sugary sweet candy or fruit smells, etc. Give me something that smells fresh, clean, watery, herbal, woodsy, musky/cologney and I am a happy camper. Also, I tend to gravitate to scents that capture a conceptual thought or feeling as opposed to an actual object. Some candles (particularly the Slatkin Co/BBW brand) tend to try to replicate an actual drink or food or flower or fruit and sometimes misses the mark; it ends up smelling too artificial. On the other there are candles (the White Barn scents) that tend to evoke a location or a mood or concept.


There are many scents I absolutely love but when I run out or BBW stops selling them, it's no love lost and I move on. However, there are a few scents am beyond obsessed out.

Here are my top 5 all time favorite BBW candles

5. Island Margarita - Love it love LOVE IT! sweet, tart, zesty..just a perfect summer scent

4. Tis the Season - to me, this is Christmas in a jar. Screw Winter, Fresh Balsam, Merry Mistletoe, its all about Tis the Season for me

3. Spring - normally I HATE most floral scents, but I am in love with this one! This smells like straight up Easter!
