What Are Bath & Body Works' Holiday Scents? These Sweet Smells Will Get You In A Festive Mood
Bath & Body Works are one of those rare brands that are both nostalgic and modern, throwing us back into our pre-teen stages and staying relevent in our adulthood beauty routines. How can they not be with such good smells? And now Bath & Body Works is rolling out 40 new scents for Christmas, making sure that every single day on the Advent calendar will be packed with festive and merry scents that will get you into the holiday spirit.
December has a knack of being linked with some very specific scents, where if you smell them you're thrown straight into being bright and merry. Roasting chestnuts make you think of treats in paper bags on chilly winter days; peppermint smells just like latte cups while holiday shopping; cinnamon makes you think of wrapping up in blankets; pines throw you back into putting up holiday decorations; and gingerbread gives you a sense of baking desserts and pastries for holiday get-togethers. Each scent has a specific memory or feeling, and now Bath & Body Works is going to give you 40 new ones to play with across the body care and candle category just in time for the holidays!
