Review | Bath and Body Works Marshmallow Fireside Candle

Since seeing Fleur de Force rave about a Bath and Body Works candle in one of her videos I have been itching to try one but unfortunately they aren't as easy to get hold of in the UK as they are in the US. I'd seen them on Amazon at the staggering price of £50 compared to $25.50 or less (they are often discounted or on special offers) but wasn't willing to pay as much as that. They also weigh too much for friends who have been to the US to bring them back so when I found them on eBay for a much more reasonable price of £18 I was really happy.

One obvious issue of buying online is that you can't actually smell the candles first which is a risk but in the past I've tried other things Fleur has recommended and I've liked them too so I decided to take the plunge and purchase one of her favourites.

The candle I choose has three wicks and is called Fireside Marshmallow... it smells incredible!! It's sweet but not too sweet and has a hint of vanilla which I love. It's one of those scents that is so delicious you just want to sit with the candle up to your nose smelling it... I LOVE it.

As for the packaging? I really like it. The glass tub is far shorter and wider than the large Yankee Candle Jars which works really well and is it's transparent you can see the flicker of the flame which adds to the atmosphere and is relaxing. The lid is also super cute as it's gold and has two delicate leaves on the side.

I will definitely be purchasing more of these candles!

  1. This was one of the first Bath & Body Works candles I ever bought when in San Francisco and I've been hooked ever since. It smells so good and they're such a good brand! X

  2. This candle is so beautiful! I wish wish wish they were more readily available in the UK, it sounds amazing. I'm curious, does anyone know if having three wicks to burn makes a big difference to how the scent is compared to just one wick?

    1. Me too! It's such a pain! Let's hope at some point they come to the UK. I don't think the three wicks affect the scent as I've got other candles that are just as strong and only burn with one wick. It does seem to help them burn more evenly having three, though.

  3. This sounds amazing! I'm a real Yankee junkie so I love anything like this. My friend smuggled me back some B&B products when she visited America. They definitely live up to the hype!

    1. If you're not a fan of sweet candles then maybe not but it isn't overpowering or sickly x

  5. £50 for a candle!? Amazon are clearly insane! I can bet marshmallow smells delicious, I love that type of scent (as in food!). The gingerbread holder you've got is so cute too!
