I spent an embarrassing amount of time searching my local B & M last year to pick up one of these Essence candles. I was am obsessed with Bath and Body Works and wanted to own one of these dupes SO BADLY, but they'd all sold out by time I got anywhere near a store. So, this is my friendly little PSA: GO AND GET THESE NOW BEFORE THEY SELL OUT.
Owning a collection of Bath and Body Works candles is basically the dream, but 1.) I live in the UK and 2.) they're hella expensive. These beauties are only £3.99, which gives you the perfect excuse to stock up on a tonne of them.
In terms of their dupe-ability, they're pretty darn good. I've got the B&BW Leaves candle at the moment, which is possibly my favourite thing I own?? So I had a little check to see how they compared. Size wise, they are slightly smaller, but not too much so that it makes much of a difference. They also only have two wicks rather than three. This doesn't bother me, but if you're looking for a three wick-er, this isn't your jam.
Their lids are copper coloured, whilst B&BW's are gold, but let's face it, who's going to be disappointed to have a little extra copper in their life?! They also throw their scent really well. For under £4 I'm so impressed with how strong they smell. And marshmallow fireside is a full on DREAM. It's everything I want in an Autumn candle in a jar.
I'm trying to restrain myself from buying the rest in the collection because Pumpkin Waffles sounds like a scent I NEED in my life, but for the moment I'm staying cosied up whilst my house smells like spiced pomegranate cider. Also, at what point will this be made into a drink? Because I'd be totally up for that too Essence.
