Bath & Body Works Rose Water & Ivy 3 Wick Candle Review: Hey guys, so I have a thing for good smelling places. I relate to my olfactory senses on a spiritual level. What I am trying to say is, good smells, good aroma and positivity is a whole different experience for me. So I feel like sharing this with everyone who reads my blogs.
I have been a fan of scented candles since my teenage years. My love for them has only grown in all these years. I remember a time I used to ask my friends coming from USA to bring me Bath and Body Works candles because people used to talk about them so much. And when I used them, I seriously loved them.
Thankfully, these are now very readily available in India now. So now when I talk about some scents and my experience with them, it will be easy for you to pick it. Today I am starting my candle series my talking about one of my all time favourite, a classic scent by BBW – Rose water and Ivy.

In Detail Bath & Body Works Rose Water & Ivy 3 Wick Candle Review and My Experience
The Bath & Body Works Rose Water and Ivy Candle belongs to their White Barn collection, where they exclusively have some scented candles. Now if you are familiar to BBW candles, you know they keep changing the packaging of the candles over and over. Kind of trying to revamp or relaunch the same scent every year. I like the concept because the scents do remain a classic, but as a customer, new packaging is always exciting and it keeps things interesting.
The BBW Rose Water & Ivy candle that I have has the limited edition packaging which came around Diwali. Remember, in all BBW Rose water and ivy candles, the smell and performance remains the same. What differs is the packaging. So when you go search it on google or anywhere else, you might see the same candle in a lot of different packagings.
I usually like to light candles in the evenings and it just creates a really cozy and relaxing vibes around my space. Although people mostly love to light such candles in winters, for me, its an year round phenomenon. I love lighting candles no matter the season. What scent I want to light depends on the mood.
So when I light the candle it takes a couple of minutes for the fragrance to start becoming noticeable. As the heat from the wick reaches the wax, it melts and that is when the fragrance starts dissipating. So you need to wait a few minutes before you can experience the aromatic space after lighting a scented candle.
What does Bath and Body Works Rose Water and Ivy Smell Like?
BBW Rose water & Ivy smell has a soft rose petal smell (prominent) mixed with white flowers. The rose water component is definitely dominant but in a very fresh and subtle way. It is mostly a feminine scent and creates a very relaxing and may be slightly romantic setting. If you have a polished nose for scents, you will notice a very slight hint of sandalwood musk that just lingers in the background giving space for the florals to shine.
I am a person not particularly drawn to flowery scents. But still this is one of my absolute favourites because the florals here are not at all overpowering or powdery. Just a feel of fresh garden roses is what I pick up. There might be some extremely light fresh lemon zest playing a part which I appreciate when I really pay attention.
What I really love about this candle is, the 3 wick candle has a good throw so even my living area which is quite big smells amazing. I usually let the candle stay on for like 2-3 hours. So even after putting it off, my room smells amazing for hours and hours. But at the same time, this isn’t a high intensity candle, so this won’t work if you’re trying to make it work for a hall or an area with lots of open windows.
I don’t usually light candles in my bathroom while I am taking a shower because 1- I am usually in a hurry and 2- I feel like the candle scents get lost in the scents from my shower products. But if you’re in a mood for a long and relaxing bath, you can light this in your bathroom as well because rose scent is said to be very relaxing as it encourages you to take deep and slow breaths.
Overall I have to say that the Bath and Body Works Rose water and Ivy is an absolutely beautiful and fresh scent and if you’d take my recommendation into consideration, definitely check it out at least once.
PROs of Bath & Body Works Rose Water & Ivy 3 Wick Candle

- Lasts quite long.

CONs of Bath & Body Works Rose Water & Ivy 3 Wick Candle
- None, its one of the best scents by BBW.
- Scents are a matter of individual preference, so if possible, smell it in a store before purchasing.
- BBW usually has the biggest sales in the month of December, so just a hint to those who want to stock it up like I do.
- I use the empty jar to store my hair clips/ hair bands in my dresser, you can use it to store a lot of different things as it comes with a nice lid.
I know the throw could have been a tiny bit better, but the smell is so good, it wins over everything. This surely is one of my top 10 favourite scents from Bath and Body Works.
