The merging of two unexpected flavors- lavender and marshmallow- make this mouthwatering blend a special treat.
I am having a somewhat difficult time determining what I think of this candle. I like it… I think. I’m not sure though. It has a somewhat “grandmotherly” smell. Floral but not musky with a sort of powdery note to it. It is very light though, not overpowering. I can’t distinctly find the marshmallow in it… It’s not like a fluffy marshmallow cream or anything like that. It’s, again, more of a light powdery note. I’m still debating whether I’ll burn this candle or return it. I’m afraid if I do burn it, I won’t like it. But I’m also afraid that, much like Lavender Macaroon a few years ago… It will prove to be a hit.
I love the packaging for the entire Spring Street Sweet Shop Collection. The pastel shades, delectable treats, gingham trim, and quaint scroll work give them a very sweet, delicate look… Like an old fashioned bakery, sweet shop, or soda shop. Very vintage. On this candle specifically I love the colorful marshmallows on the label! They are vibrant and beautiful, and all in shades that complement the wax shade which I love as well. [please note the first portion of this packaging review is applicable to the entire Spring Street Sweet Shop collection and repeated on the reviews of other candles in this collection.]
Lavender Marshmallow is a new candle recently released at select Bath and Body Works test stores as of late November 2013. This candle is in the Spring Street Sweet Shop Collection, which is one of the six collections currently testing for Spring and Summer 2014. As this candle is currently in test phase there is no guarantee that it will launch nationwide. If it does the estimated release date is around January or February, in time for Valentine’s Day.
