This review on the Slatkin & Co. Pumpkin Cupcake Candle from Bath & Body Works was a long time coming.
You see, before it was even released in stores, I ordered it from the website when I found an amazing 30% off coupon code that could be used on top of the 2 for $20 USD 3-wick candle sale, and the Canadian dollar was strong.
I waited. I waited and waited. And then I waited some more. Finally, I decided to inquire about why it was taking so long for my package to arrive in Canada.
Turns out, my order arrived damaged at Purolator, so Purolator sent it back to Bath & Body Works in the States. I contacted Bath & Body Works, and they said that I’d need to re-order it. They have good customer service and said they’d honour the sale prices (but not the 30% coupon code). They also offered to give me complimentary shipping.

And…the salesperson said they were all out of them a long time ago. Seeing my extreme disappointment, she offered to check the back ‘just in case’.
She found the very last one! And guess what? Apparently on her way back to me, there was a guy who was asking for the Pumpkin Cupcake candle…Haha, but too bad for him because that last one went into my greedy little mitts! *Squeals*
