My favorite Christmas Scents {Candles & Wax Melts!}

Once Thanksgiving was over, and my Autumn Bath & Body Works candle had finished burning, I broke out the “Christmas” scents.  During the holidays growing up I remember the delicious warm & sweet smells of my Granny baking breads, rolls, fudge, a goose or turkey in the oven, and all the trimmings.  Now that I’m on my own, I like my apartment to smell warm and welcoming in the same way.  I don’t have time or ambition to attempt baking tons of deliciousness that I grew up with, but I have found some of my favorite scents that remind me of the holidays and wanted to share them with you!  I like each of these scents equally as all are lovely for the holidays.   I was even complimented on the combination when I had company staying over the weekend.

Both Bath & Body Works candles are still available and as of today (12/18/13) the 3-wick candles are still 2 for $22!

1) Bath & Body Works – Good Natured Christmas

  • Created to be shared with the ones you love, a Good Natured Christmas generously blends creamy white birch, smoked vanilla bean and a hint of musk

2) Bath & Body Works – ‘Tis the Season

  • Rich, red apples, green pine and a touch of golden cider combine to capture all the joy and activities of the holidays

3) Brookside Candle Melts in Yuletide Cheer

  • I bought this at Kohls, and I think it must be a brand exclusive to them.  I tried to find you a scent description for this but it is all gone from kohls.com!  I’m bad at describing scents but I’d say it was warm and spicy with a hint of apple or cranberry. It blended very nicely with Good Natured Christmas as I’d have my scentsy going and buring the candle.  I really wish I had bought another one!

Are you a candle person, scentsy/wax melt person, or nothing?  Some of my friends don’t like anything going but they are very sensitive to fragrance.   Obviously, I don’t have a problem with it!  I am also on the look out for good scents since I have a pet and don’t want people to catch any “pet” smells.

Thanks for stopping by Gracious Luck today!

  1. You managed to pick the best holiday candles from bbw in my opinion. I also bought Winter, vanilla snowflake & sparkling icicles. Meh a little unimpressed….tis the season (which is a less expensive dupe for Yankee candle’s red apple wreath) & good natured Xmas were by far my favs!! I am thinking i need to pick up the Yuletide Cheer melts from Kohls…I bought the evergreen & balsam the other day instead & quite enjoyed it. They were also 1/2 off so I picked up the 6 cube pack for only $2.50.

    • I usually pick winter but decided to mix it up this year. I checked my kohls a couple days ago and it was all picked over, hope you have better luck than me! Merry Christmas! 🙂
