There is always something special about Bath and Body Works Holiday Traditions collection. After trying and getting majorly obsessed with the BBW’s Vanilla Bean Noel fragrance line, I wanted to lay my hands on the Winter Candy Apple fragrance from their Holiday Traditions range. After a long wait, I finally found it online last December and immediately ordered the same. And yeah, it was a blind buy like all my other BBW’s product purchases. Read on to find out if it was worth so much wait.
One sweet celebration! Our exclusive Signature Body Lotion formula, fortified with powerful ingredients like super conditioning Shea butter, fast absorbing Jojoba oil and protective Vitamin E, hydrates skin with moisture that lasts all day. Our non-greasy formula absorbs quickly and completely to leave skin feeling incredibly soft, smooth and nourished, making it the perfect daily moisturizer. Smooth over body to moisturize and lightly fragrance skin with our exclusive Winter Candy Apple, a mouth-watering blend of crisp apple, candied orange and rich cinnamon spice.
900 INR for 236 ml.

My Take on Bath and Body Works Winter Candy Apple Body Lotion:
Packaging: Amazing!! The cap is made of a classy shade of red and the label in the front has a beautiful Reindeer along with a snow flake which just makes the whole design and packaging look classy and adorable. The bottle has a standard BBW packaging which is sturdy, slightly curved at the middle and has a cap with push-up mechanism which can be tightly screwed. There is no fuss in the packaging and thus makes it perfect to carry around in the bag.
Consistency: The consistency is just right without being too runny or too thick. It spreads and blends into the skin in no time and leaves no greasiness or oiliness at all. Immediately after application, it makes my skin so touchable and smooth that it feels as soft as baby’s skin. No joke :P. As said earlier, the BBW’s Holiday Traditions collection has something special about them. The main feature which stands out is the amount of moisture this lotion delivers. This lotion alone in the winter has served to be extremely moisturizing for my oily skin, which does turn very dry during colder months. The other body lotions apart from holiday traditions do not have this unique quality in them. The lotion keeps my skin hydrated for good 6-7 hours. Beauties with dry skin can easily bank on this lotion for colder months as well.
I am used to more of vanilla and berries notes in my perfumes and lotions, so this lotion was not a love-at-first-sniff 😛 I stopped using this right after the first whiff since it had a note of zesty orange which is not to my liking. Later during peak winters, when I was digging up my body lotion stash, I found this and gave it a try and that’s how the scent slowly grew on me. Since then, I have become a fan and I am reaching to this lotion quite frequently. Bangalore is already heating up due to the onset of summers and still I use this lotion on a daily basis, and thus not only in winters, this lotion can be used in summers as well.
The fragrance notes are rightly described by BBW. The first time, when I sniffed it from the bottle directly, I got a whiff of apples and ripe oranges. Any citrusy and grass notes turns me off and the same thing happened with this lotion as well and I kept wondering why was this lotion under the holiday traditions line, which is supposed to have warmer and bakery scents. But I got to know the real reason when I smoothed the lotion on my skin. There came my saviour, cinnamon; which added the rich warmth and subtle spiciness to the lotion and hence, I was completely in love with the fragrance the very next moment. Thus again I thought, another blind buy which truly deserves all the wait and money.
The sillage is strong and thus draws a lot of compliments and you get to hear at least a few people telling, oh something smells really nice 😛 The smell of this lotion stays put on my skin for good 5-6 hours which is awesome and during this time, I don’t really feel the need to use any perfume. Thus, this perfumed lotion is a beautiful blend of sweet apples, subtle spicy cinnamon and mild juicy oranges.
Lastly, summing up the pros and cons:
Pros of Bath and Body Works Winter Candy Apple Body Lotion:
- Packaging is travel friendly.
- Provides amazing moisturization for good 6-7 hours.
- Amazing smell which is sweet yet warm due to a heavenly blend of apples, cinnamon spice and orange.
- The scent lasts for 5-6 hours which is a huge plus for me.
- A little goes a long way, since only a small amount of the product is required for each application.
- Leaves no greasiness on the skin post application.
- Ideal lotion which can be used all-round the year due to its fragrance as well as moisturizing properties.
Cons of Bath and Body Works Winter Candy Apple Body Lotion:
- Availability and price of BBW’s products in India is still an issue.
- Winter Candy Apple range is from BBW’s Holiday Traditions collection, and thus not available at their stores all-round the year.
