There’s something about the change of the season to make us super excited to start burning new candles! When one season comes to a close, it’s so satisfying to put those candles away and swap them out for fresh, new scents. It makes a room smell absolutely wonderful.

At least, that’s what we keep telling ourselves to justify spending so much money on candles at Bath & Body Works. We all experience that craze, when we stock up on our favorite seasonal Bath & Body Works candles, as soon as the weather starts to change.

However, picking the perfect new scent for your home can be tricky. Let’s be honest, there are just way too many to choose from–but we wouldn’t have it any other way. Bath & Body Works, never change. The fragrance choices are seriously never endless and we love it.

To help make your decision a little bit easier, we’ve picked our favorites to share with you. These are the best smelling Bath & Body Works candles. You should snag these iconic sweet scents before they’re gone, as you know Bath & Body Works changes up their fragrances often. Without further ado, let’s dive into our top five favorites.

“This will be my 2018 summer scent. Wonderful smell and a terrific throw! Smell has wafted throughout the whole house without overpowering the room that it’s in. If you like Caribbean Escape, you’ll like this too! And, it was on sale!”

“This one is great, though it has a pineapple note that I don’t really like. The throw is about a 7. I wanted it to be a little more complex, like maybe some lime or verbena notes, but it’s still good.”

This warm scent smells like fresh ground cinnamon, sugar crystals, and Tahitian vanilla bean. It has a rating of 4.2 out of 5 stars.

Check out these rave customer reviews for more:

“Such a unique, beautiful smelling candle! Its name describes it perfectly. Vanilla, but with a twist. It has a nice, warm cinnamon smell mixed in. I knocked off a star because the throw is a little weak. Not horrible, but definitely could stand to be stronger. All in all, I love this candle and plan to buy more in the future!”

“This candle reminded me so much of cinnamon sugared donut! I do not think it’s a repackage but if you’re missing cinnamon sugared donut, this is very close. Burning it smelled like a milky cinnamon with some vanilla. It was a nice light, sweet scent, not artificial or sickly sweet like other sweet scents. It isn’t the strongest candle but it works for the scent. Burning I can tell more of the difference from cinnamon sugared donut which from what I can remember threw stronger and I smelled more cinnamon. My boyfriend actually picked this one out and I will be buying more!”
