Which retailer has the best candle: Bath and Body Works or Yankee Candle?
You just can't beat the classic three-wick candle from Bath and Body Works. They are reliable, they consistently produce an even burn and, most important, they smell delicious across the board.
When you walk into a Bath and Body Works, you know you're walking out with a candle. At the regular price of $24.50, Bath and Body Works candles are the more affordable option, particularly when those same candles are half-off, as they often are!
Yankee Candle offers class. These candles don't skimp on scent quality; their smells don't slap you in the face when you walk into a room. Plus, Yankee Candle offers consistency when it comes to packaging and presentation. You won't find loud cartoon designs on these candles. Like their scents, Yankee Candles have a unobtrusive, pleasing presentation.
Bath and Body Works is spot-on with its scents. "Carmel Pumpkin Swirl" smells like a PSL come to life, and "Leaves" might as well place you on a mountaintop overlooking a sea of yellow and orange trees.
These fragrances immediately fill the room and last for weeks. One Bath and Body Works fan sums up the competition, saying:
I can only speculate but it feels like today Yankee Candle spends more time designing their labels for their candles than actually doing quality assurance testing on their products.
Ouch. Bath and Body Works knows what its customers want and follows through.
Yankee Candle is aware of the world happening around the flame: its products are all-natural. According to the Mini Millionaire:
They are suitable for vegans, not tested on animals nor do they contain animal or insect ingredients. Instead, the candles are made with paraffin wax.
And sure, these candles might be more expensive, but when you do the math, you're paying less per hour of burn time with a Yankee Candle than with a Bath and Body Works candle.
The bottom line is Yankee Candle is authentic where Bath and Body Works pivots with trends. This is the candle company that will stand by you from bad weather to times of grief.
