Hello, my lovelies! This week I’ve got a home fragrance review for you, and it is for Bath & Body Works’ 24 mL wallflower fragrance bulb in Vanilla Snowflake (from the 2013 holidays collection), which retails for $7.50. This bulb fits into any Bath & Body Works wallflower plug, and in theory scents your room for many weeks to come. Let’s see if it lives up to expectations!
In line with the rest of their Wallflowers, the Vanilla Snowflake fluid comes in a bulbous glass orb with a slim bottom and wide top. The name “wallflowers” is raised in the front, and it comes with an ‘ElastiTag’ that’s shaped like an adorable snowman with a lovely geometric design. It reads: 24 mL/0.8 fl oz / Bath & Body Works HOME / wallflowers / HOME FRAGRANCE REFILL / RECHARGE DE PARFUM D’AMBIANCE / VANILLA SNOWFLAKE. The fluid is a gorgeous golden colour, with a festive silver topper instead of the usual plain white one.
The Bath & Body Works website describes the Vanilla Snowflake scent this way:
The delectable fragrance of creamy vanilla, winter mint and a touch of coconut evokes a dreamy, snowflake-filled day.
Funny that when I smelt this in candle form I didn’t pick up any mint notes, and yet in the wallflower it’s so astoundingly obvious to me that this is minty! It smells like vanilla icing with some drops of mint extract added – fabulous! Wonderfully festive and crisp without being pasty. Love at first sniff! In terms of throw, the Wallflowers I’ve tried so far have been incredibly strong. I suppose their fragrance concentration must be rather high, because they radiate scent unwaveringly and powerfully.
Note: in my last wallflower review I expressed some concerns that I had about fragrances mixing between uses. That is, if I exchange refills, will the scents be distorted? I found that you can detach the ‘petals’ component of the plug and clean it, as well as wipe down the rest of it between fragrance changes to minimize scents mixing. I’m repeatedly amazed by just how powerful and long-lasting these babies are, and I will be purchasing more of them in the future for sure.
What’s your opinion about this lovely holiday scent?
