Started this post on January 4 and only got around to posting it on April 4 lol
I’ve only ever heard of Candle Day, but never actually experienced it for myself, or even knew what day it fell on. Heck, I don’t think we’ve ever had Candle Day in Kuwait.
So imagine my surprise and delight when I logged on to the U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Store and accidentally stumbled on Candle Day! Basically, if you don’t know what Candle Day is, it’s when 3-Wick Candles go on sale!
I added a ton of 3-Wick Candles to my online cart and immediately placed my order, but my credit cart was all “nah lol you’re outta $$”.
Of all the times to exceed the limit on my darn online credit card, I had to run out of $$ on Candle Day?!?!
Thankfully, I still had some $$ left. There was a lot of “mathing” involved, but I figured out I had just enough for x10 3-Wick Candles, with a little something extra for taxes (we don’t have taxes in Kuwait so I’ve got now clue how to calculate that stuff lol)
Deal at the time of this order:
3-Wick Candles were reduced from $24.50 each down to only $9.50 each
$9.50 Today Only! – with code CANDLECRAZE
As I said, the U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Store had some pretty good deals all throughout December! They were releasing new products and new deals pretty much on the daily!
The deals at the time of this order:
– Hand Soaps were reduced from $6.50 to $3
– Wallflower Fragrances Duos (2pc) were 3 for $27 (normally $12.50 each)
– Wallflower Fragrances (singles) were 5 for $23 (normally $7.50 each)
– Use code SANTA for 20% Off Entire Order
I decided to pick up a few Wallflower Fragrances and Hand Soaps.
Wallflower Fragrances make my home smell ah-mazing and they were on sale! Win, win.
Hand Soaps tend to smell great too and they were on sale as well ergo good time to stock up!
The Autumn Perfumes Exhibition took place at Mishref Fair Grounds (Halls 5,6,7,8) during October 24 and was meant to end on November 6, but was extended to November 9 (because… weekend).
At this point, it’s practically tradition for me to check out the Lancome booth (run by Beidoun) during every Perfumes Exhibition and in all honesty, other than that one time (here), my experience with them, for the past few decades, has been nothing short of excellent (here)!
I hit up the Lancome booth because I was flirting with the idea of getting either the original La Nuit Trésor Eau de Parfum (2015) or La Nuit Trésor À La Folie Eau de Parfum (2018), but ended up walking away with this gem, the Maison Lancome Les Parfums Grands Crus Travel Set (foncy, foncy)!
Each fragrance was a work of art, therefore my “reviews” or rather first impressions of each fragrance, is going to be a bit on the longer side, in my attempt to do them justice.
Lastly but certainly not least were the Candles and Wallflower Bulbs I picked up during The Big Sale. Some were purchased in-store and the ones I couldn’t find in-store were purchased online.
I picked up x14 large 3-wick Candles and x2 Jar Candles and x3 Wallflower Bulbs. I haven’t started burning any of them just yet because ironically, for the past two weeks I’ve been sick with the flu (hence lack of new posts lol)
3-Wick Candles were reduced from KD 8 each to KD 4 each
Single Wick Jar Candles were reduced from KD 6 – KD 5 each to KD 2/500 each
Wallflower Refill Bulbs were reduced from KD 2/250 each to KD 1 each
