The White Barn Candle Company is a popular designer of home fragrance products widely distributed through Bath & Body Works stores. With a range of signature scents and many scented products to choose from, it is no surprise that this company is one of the most popular for scented candles and related products.
History of White Barn Candle Company
The White Barn Candle Company history is a bit complex. The current website WhiteBarn.com redirects to a dedicated page on the Bath & Body Works website answering the question of its status of being sold exclusively by Bath & Body Works.
Beginnings of White Barn
In 1982, L. Brands (formerly Limited Brands, Inc and The Limited, Inc) purchased Victoria's Secret and later Bath & Body Works for its flagship brands. In 1998, the company converted several Bath & Body Works stores into White Barn Candle Company stores to launch their home fragrance brand. Later, the two stores were paired side by side.
White Barn Become Slatkin Co
In 2005, Limited Brands purchased Slatkin & Co. Most of the White Barn products were displaced by Slatkin's brands. The White Barn Candle Company stores featured Slatkin products instead of the White Barn brand.
Change Back to White Barn Label
In 2013, the White Barn Candle Company brand was resurrected. With its website redirected to Bath & Body Works, White Barn established itself as a Brand exclusive to Bath & Body Works, although White Barn is not part of L Brands.
Home fragrance is a unique aspect of interior design, and there is a wide range of specialized products that can bring subtle aromas and luscious scents to your home. The White Barn Candle Company manufactures several of the most popular types of home fragrance products, including:
- 3-wick jar candles with decorative lids

Blended fragrances are also popular, such as Frozen Lake that's a blend of lavender leaves, juniper berries, eucalyptus and essential oils. One of the company's newer scents, Cranberry Peach is a blend of tart cranberry, sweet peaches and a sugared musk, also blended with essential oils. These fragrances and other combined scents give a distinct hallmark White Barn scent.
