There are few mall brands that hold the same staying power as Bath and Body Works. Each year, they pump out new and improved scents for us to spritz about our bodies and homes, and they’re at their best during the holidays. Even during 80-degree November days, their candles immediately spark images of roasting chestnuts and well-placed mistletoe.
Luckily for us, the brand new 2018 Bath and Body Works holiday collection may be the best one yet, with a total of 40 spanking-new fragranced goodies. Since we know you’re likely inundated with an ocean of holiday-themed emails and catalogs, we’ve lovingly gathered our favorite new treats from the Bath and Body Works holiday collection. Whether you’re treating yourself or shopping for a loved one, you can go forth a fully informed fragrance addict.
Let’s get swept up in some of the sweet smells of the holidays, shall we?
As you can likely guess by the name, this brand-new fragrance is truly the star of the 2018 collection. The fragrance is infused with warm sandalwood, fresh starflower, and sweet and spicy white agar wood so you’ll smell sparklier and more sophisticated than the holiday bubbly.
