#BBWINSIDERS ~ It Happened One Night ~ Mini candle Review

December 9, 2013
I received my Box of three mini candles today {at no charge} from Bath and Body Work Fragrance Insiders to review the fragrances and post my findings.  The review I will provide is my own opinion on the scents of these items and not one because these were provided to me at no charge.
Candle Line: 
 It Happened One Night
     Holiday 2013
Name of candles and notes:
Party Dress:
An unforgettable blend of orchid petals, billowing white peony and soft jasmine that's fitting for any celebration
Black Tie:
Your perfect escort to any holiday party – green sage, sandalwood and Tonka bean
Peach Bellini:
A shimmering holiday twist on a classic blend of white peach, tart blackcurrant and a splash of juicy orange.
My Thoughts:
The first candle I opened is not a stranger to me and is one that I own and burn often.
Peach Bellini.
   I love this scent.  I love on cold sniff the peach and orange note combination seems to blend together for a citrus smell but not overly sweet and not an orangey smell.  You can smell the peaches in this candle and the orange is just a hint. And for me, it has an effervescence to it.. almost fizzy like the drink. With the lid off waiting for me to start burning it, you can smell its strong....for this little candle. 
The wax for this candle is white.  While colored waxes are pretty, I am partial to white wax candles as they match everything.
 I have this little candle currently burning and it is peach delicious-ness, even in this little size.  Highly recommend. 
The next candle in the box is Party Dress.
This wax is a dark purple color and upon lifting the lid my first impression was it was a floral with a touch of masculinity to it.  Not manly like the Black Tie is, and  not bright florals like the Spring candle was.  It has a warmth to the floral notes without this vanilla touch so many of the candles now seem to have.  This is a new favorite for me and one I will go buy in a larger 3 wick size.  I recommend it.
The last candle in the box is Black Tie
This wax is a gunmetal grey color and upon opening its lid I find this to be very masculine scent driven as if it was a man cologne or deodorant.  I know sandalwood and green sage....but I have no idea what a Tonka bean is or what it smells like so I wont pretend to say yes it's in here.
What I get from this on cold sniff is clean and sexy.  This is the candle I would expect a man would be burning for himself and what women would buy for him.  I would definitely gift this to a guy....and hoped he smelled like it too!
I have been burning this one now and it smells as rich and masculine warmed as it did cold...another I highly recommend.
Here are some photos of the candles in the "It happened one night" Line.  They are all awesome  and well worth trying!
