HUGE Candles by Victoria Haul!

Hey everyone! So I have a huge Candles by Victoria haul to share with you today. She had a sale on April 1st and this is my order from that sale. I got 29 scent shots, 2 body lotions, and a 20 oz barrel candle. Just wanted to share pictures and my thoughts on each scent! The body lotions are $8.50 a piece, Scent shots are $2.00 a piece, and the 20 oz candle is $17.00. Enjoy! :)

  • Watermelon Cupcake Body Lotion - This smells sooooo good! It's very sweet! I highly recommend this scent in any form they make it in. It's just pure sweet bliss to me. Not so much bakery as just sweet.  :)
  • White Nectarine & Pink Coral - This smells good however, I enjoy it so much more in soap form than the body lotion. I don't know why but to me there is an after scent that I don't like in the lotion that the soap doesn't have. 
  • 20 oz Barrel Candle Purple & Blue - I got the Cantaloupe scent! I absolutely adore this scent! It smells dead on like Cantaloupe. So if you like Cantaloupe I highly suggest this scent. I also have this in the body lotion and I used to have it in a soap and all three are great! And isn't the candle jar soooo pretty!?
  • Dark Kiss Scent Shot - Dead on dupe for B&BW Dark Kiss. Love it! Great option since the Dark Kiss candle from B&BW is no longer available. ;)
  • Sexy in Stilettos Scent Shot - I don't know how to describe this one other than wonderful. I have no idea what the notes are in it but oh my goodness ... I just love it! Try it! 
  • Banana Caramel Cupcake - I'm on the fence about this one. On one hand, I like it but on the other hand I just don't smell any caramel. Mostly just a bakery note + a little banana. Gonna let it cure a little more and then smell again. 
  • Cotton Candy - Again, another dead on scent to me. This smells exactly like cotton candy and is sugary sweet. I really like it!
  • German Chocolate Cake - This scent to me isn't very strong and when I do smell it, it doesn't smell like German Chocolate Cake to me. Maybe it just needs to cure a little longer but right now definitely not a repurchase. 
  • Fair day - I really like this one! I smell apples, caramel, and a hint of buttery popcorn all in one. Just like all those foods you can get at a fair. Love it!
  • Tahitian Vanilla - Smells like coconut and vanilla. I always love this combo! 
  • Bermuda Triangle - This one combines all kinds of fruits (cantaloupe, honeydew, watermelon, and some citrus) and I love this one! Fruity fans this one is for you!
  • Bella Swan - Smells like grape pop to me but hey ... I'm surprised to say I actually really like it! ;)
  • Buttercream Crunch - Yummm buttery caramel scent. Always like these!
  • Bubbling Butterscotch Sundae - I want to love this one but honestly to me it plain out stinks. I just don't get anything out of it. 
  • Coconut Cake - Very coconut and not much of a bakery scent yet but I'd be interested to see what it smells like warm.  
  • Get Me S'more - This one smells like bread to me haha. I don't know why but I can't detect any chocolate or marshmallows. I think it needs to cure longer. 
  • Tiffany D - Watermelon, Cotton Candy, and Vanilla ... I adore this one! :-)
  • Banana - Straight up banana and I love the smell of banana!
  • Caramel Coffee Cake - I LOVE THIS! You can smell the coffee scent + the caramel + a hint of bakery. 
  • Apple Martini - I do not like this one. I don't detect any apple at all and I just don't like the smell. Not a repurchase. 
  • Gain Island Fresh - Smells exactly like Gain Island Fresh haha. If you want your house to smell like laundry this is the scent for you!
  • Skinny Dippin' - This one is ok. Not as good as the previous coconut scents I've talked about. 
  • Cinnamon Donuts - I love it. Perfect mix of cinnamon and the bakery note. Yum!
  • Strawberry Lemonade - Yummy! Smells exactly like it's name and I love you get the tartness of the lemonade. Must try!
  • Strawberry Margarita - I don't like this one. Period. 
  • Cream Cheese Frosting - I must be missing something here like maybe it just needs to cure longer. Because it smells gross to me and nothing like the name. :(
  • Apple Pie Ala Mode - YUM! This smells fantastic. Great blend of cinnamon and apples and you get the bakery note as well. LOVEEEE.
  • Lemon Vanilla - Smells like a candy I can't remember the name of it though. More lemon than vanilla but I really like it. 
  • Hawaiian Wedding Cake - I don't get a bakery note in this one like I expected. It's just fruity in my opinion. 
  • Pina Colada - I thought I would like this one because I thought it would be coconuty but it stinks to me. Not a repurchase. 
  • Pumpkin Vanilla - Smells like Pumpkin Pie to me .... soooo good!
  • Bahama Mama - I smell coconut and pineapple and I really, really love it!
  • Bikini Bottoms - Smells like sunscreen (which I like) and it's much like Poolside by B&BW!
If there is anything any of you would like to try, CBV has the code CBVictoria for 10% off your order. They include this code with your order so I just wanted to share it. Enjoy!


  1. Nice haul! I WILL try her one day! :) How do you like her lotions (other than the scent)...like moisturizing-wise?

  2. The lotions are moisturizing. I wouldn't say they are any better or any worse than B&BW so I would say about the same. However, the smell lingers all day which I love! ;)

    1. Awesome! I saw where her bottles are a bit cheaper than B&BW (unless you get some on sale anyway)...she has lots of scents to choose from! :) I might have to try! This is a weird question...but is the bottle pink or is that the color of the lotion?

    2. They have tons of scents! They keep adding scents too. I think they just started doing bath & body stuff like a year ago so they are still pretty new. The lotion is actually pink and the bottle is clear. Lol.
