When it comes to fall, we all have a favorite flavor that comes to mind. Whether it’s maple, pumpkin, walnut – whatever! And with all of those incredible flavors come comforting scents, like those that we get from candles.
We recently got our hands on the Bath & Body Works Pumpkin Pecan Waffle candle, and we can’t believe it. It has definitely become a favorite fresh-baked scent in our office as we ease our way into fall. And it certainly came just in time – as we’re celebrating Waffle Week this week!
But that’s not the only fragrance they are debuting this year. We’re loving the entire We Love Fall line at Bath & Body Works! With Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, Banana Nutmeg Bread Pudding, Farmstand Apple, and so many more, there’s definitely a favorite fall scent for everyone. And with so many different pumpkin combinations, you’re sure to be ready to celebrate Pumpkin Week coming up soon!
But out of all of those fragrances, after taking a trip to smell them all at our local Bath & Body Works, we have fallen most in love with the Pumpkin Pecan Waffle. Good thing they offer soap, bubble bath, hand cream, and so much more in that scent right?? You’ll definitely want to head to your local Bath & Body Works to check out all of these great scents and decide on your fall fave!
Fall has always been a time for transition and a time to remember your childhood. Fall means Halloween, Thanksgiving, and it also means Christmas is not too far away! And with all of these holidays comes comfort baking. We recently got in the kitchen to create a recipe that embodies this new, fantastic scent from Bath & Body Works, and we couldn’t be more excited.
There’s nothing like a warm, delicate waffle drizzled with maple syrup to start your day. But what about adding it to dessert? This recipe brings together all of our favorite flavors of fall into one perfect little bite. Top your cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, drizzle them with pecan maple syrup, and add a bit of crunch by using a waffle inspired garnish. Celebrate with these cupcakes during brunch or serve them for dessert as we welcome fall!
