Review Day: Bath and Body Works Mini Candle

Hello my dear friends. Today, I’m bringing you a review on something near and dear to my heart; candles. Specifically, Bath and Body Works candles. Before I get into the review, I want to give you a little background on my love affair with Bath and Body Works candles. I really got into candles last year around this time of year, thanks to all of the YouTube videos I watched. YouTube is truly an enabler, I swear. One day, I ventured into my local B&BW and the love affair with their candles started. Collecting their candles has become almost an obsession; I have to have at least four candles for every season for me to feel happy and accomplished. Some see it as wasting money. I see it as a fulfillment and a necessity in my relaxation routine. Thanks to Influenster, I was able to try out one of the new fall candles from Bath and Body Works in the Nutmeg and Spice scent. Let’s get right into the review.

  • The mini candles are a great way to test out the scent of a candle you’re interested in without shelling out the $19.50-$20.00 for the full sized candle. You can usually get these candles during a deal of 2 for $5 (sometimes 3 for $5), giving you a little more bang for your buck.
  • The scent I received (Nutmeg and Spice) smells divine. If you’re into more of a spicy scent, this may be the one for you. The smell isn’t strong enough to give you a headache (in my opinion), but it does leave your room smelling nice. I like that.
  • I didn’t experience any wick drowning with this candles which is a plus. I found that my flame melted my candle very nicely without the wax dulling it down.


  • Personally, the price for one of these is kind of an “eh” thing for me. I always say this about the candles no matter what size: buy the candles on sale. I would rather pay $5 for two of these on sale than $7 for two of these when they’re not on sale, you know? I know there are some people out there who would buy them regardless, which is good too. I’m cheap, so I always like to feel like I’m getting a sale on something, even if it’s not by that much.

Final Thoughts: Get this candle or any other candle from Bath and Body Works that you enjoy. I love their candles and always go to them for my candles first before I go anywhere else. I have only been disappointed one time by their candles (wick drowning), but that can easily be fixed by using a tart warmer. I love the packaging of the candles, and how you can reuse the glass jar after all of the wax has been melted out. If you really want to get fancy, I suggest buying one of their candle sleeves to dress up your candle. Always buy these candles on sale though; I cannot justify spending $20 on one candle and I refuse to pay that much for just one. Check out Nutmeg and Spice as well as other scents on

I hope you all enjoyed this review. Let me know what your favorite type of scents are and if you purchase candles from Bath and Body Works, tell me your favorites. I would love to try out some different scents. Until next time, I’ll speak to you all later and happy candle burning!
