Hands up if you’ve gone wild in a Bath & Body Works store before!
I was literally pumping my fist in the air and going “Yes, YES!” when I heard that Bath & Body Works was gonna be available in Singapore. Finally, I didn’t have to allocate like 3 kg of my luggage space to my favorite range of body care! Or mull over which to bring back. Or bug my friends to get them all back for me, hahaha.
There’s just something about BBW (my abbreviated form for Bath & Body Works) that makes us all go “buy, buy, buy!”. I had my first BBW experience on my first trip to the United States of America at least 8-9 years back? I was feeling really dry from the witner season (have you experienced a texan winter before? It’s dry like nothing) and my aunt passed me a bottle of BBW’s body lotion. And the very next day, we set out to get me a tub of body cream, and then some! Hahaha.
I was on a holiday, but I took my time to smell and try everything to narrow down my preferences! The stores were MASSIVE and it was literally a playground for home and body care, with tonnes of different products and even taps for you to try out the hand soaps! You have helpful assistants aiding you on making the most important decision – finding out which scent you like, and then gathering the different types of body and home products available in that particular signature scent!
As America’s number 1 favorite brand, with more than 1600 stores in the USA and over 100 internationally, Bath & Body works are crazily devoted to making fragrances fun – you’ll be spoilt for choice the minute you step in, and on top of that, they usually have fun seasonal fragrance releases!
One of their Christmas specials – Twisted Peppermint!
Stop and smell the happy! It’s SALE TIME from now till 21st Jan, and a lot of fragrances are going at 50% off!
Everyone’s perennial favorite – the Japanese Cherry Blossom! I loved this too – in fact every one at home did! I can’t tell you how much of these I’ve brought back for the family…
And the best part? These amazing sets are so value-for-money – the sets are priced from $25 up!
Twilight Woods smells heavenly too!
The forever red set made such a great looking gift, maybe for Valentines’ Day?
I love the artwork created for this set!
So, let me tell you about my absolute FAVORITE scent from BBW.
I’m not kidding when I say that I have almost everything except for the body bar & bath salts for this range!
Say Hello to Eucalyptus Spearmint, aka the stress relieve range from the aromatherapy series!
There’s just something about this series which makes me feel calm and happy. With over 20 uniquely blended fragrances, I’m sure one will fit your personality, and this is mine! I want to smell like this after I shower, and I love smelling it when I’m doing my work.
Candle (and wallflowers, car portable scents)
And even the pillow mists! The pillow mists were my absolute favorite to turn in to. I’ll just spray it all over my sheets and dive right into bliss!
They have body mists too, from the aromaterapy range – lavender chamomile is a really nice mixture and soothing as well. I have this in pillow mist form too!
The PocketBacs are the cutest, and and make the best small gifts for friends (popular stocking stuffer too)! It has since undergone a facelift from the last time I’ve seen it, a little rounder now but still super cute isn’t it?!
It was hard to get this in Eucalyptus Spearmint but I hunted it down in the states previously, hahaha. I know, I’m OBSESSED.
I’m not kidding when I say they have something for everyone, no matter your preference or choice of home ware/body care.
One popular favorite? Their candles!
Saying that you’ll be spoilt for choice is an understatement. I go wild when they have offers on these candles! They smell really good, and the three-wicked candles gets the aroma around really fast too!
If you’re not a fan of candles, there’s always the home sprays! Here are some of the holiday limited edition room sprays with super cute packaging imprinted on the cans!
If you don’t like sprays OR candles, how about a heat diffuser?
I did not get Wallflowers when I was in USA previously due to the voltage differences – and this was the first thing to go into my basket when they opened in Singapore!
It’s so easy to switch scents, too! The scents are contained in the bulbs, which has a wick running through.
Simply twist the wallflower bulbs in (or out), plug it in and turn it on. And it lasts for quite a while, too! I’ve only gone through 2 bulbs (of Eucalyptus Spearmint, yes) since the opening of BBW in Singapore!
And for those looking for car and wardrobe scents… this – The Scentportables!!!! I have these hanging in my wardrobe AND my car. They’re pretty easy to use, too! The packaging ensures that it is leak-proof!
On the left is the container – and the right, the scent refill! Sweet Pea is a long time favorite for a lot of girls – I remember that Peiling (Agneselle) was mad about it!
You know what’s more mad? I made Ron carry back an entire stack of it (yes, in Eucalyptus Spearmint) back for me from USA before.
At least it was light, hahahaha….
There’s just something about fragrances that makes people happy – be it their favorite scent, a scent that calms, a familiar fragrance that brings them back and evokes certain memories… they make such great gifts especially if you know what your friends like! (Yes yes, everything Eucalyptus Spearmint I like!)
Plus, with sales like this, how can you not bring home some? Their hand soaps will make the best housewarming gifts too! THE SALE ENDS 21ST JAN!!!
