NEWNESS UPDATE: The Hawaiian Collection ~ New Latecomers

So normally, I wouldn't really waste any more of your time or mine talking about saying anything more about BBW's ubiquitous Hawaiian collection but I that this was interesting enough to write a post about.
So recently, 2 "new" candles that look like they belong in the Hawaiian collection have been spotted on social media
IG user @t_osu
However very few have seen these two in person and those few could neither describe the scents in detail or confirm if they are repackages
The 2 latecomers are...
Coastal Citrus - Sparkling Bergamot, Sea Salt Crystals, Pink Grapefruit (this could be Coastal Sun aka Citrus Flower which would be fine with me cuz that's my summer jam. It could also be the now forgotten one hit wonder Pomelo Paradise. But knowing BBW's track record of repackaging mildly popular but still underwhelming scents, chances are this is probably a repackage of Capri Citron/Pomelo Citron
Island Chai - Sunwashed Cinnamon, Coconut Milk, Clove Buds & Cardamo…

WALK 'N' SNIFF: Test Lab Candles and Hawaiian Candles

So I have recently felt a sensation that I haven't experienced in a very long time - curiousity.

In the past maybe 2-3 years, I sorta went thru the motions with BBW; my visits to the store went down dramatically with the only motivation for said visits was to sniff things for the sake of a review; usually leaving underwhelmed and, more often than not, empty-handed.

But today, for the first time in years, I genuinely and sincerely wanted to step inside a store because there were new creative and unique scents that were worth sniffing.

I decided that I would travel to new WB store that I never knew even existed until recently and even on the long arduous subway ride there, I could feel myself getting more and more giddy with anticipation. I made it safely to my destination and as I stood outside the store, I could feel it almost beckoning to come inside and sniff its scented treasures thus sending me on an olfactoral journey. I was ready to sniff...THE TEST LAB CANDLES!!!

NEWNESS UPDATE: Even More Spring 2018 Candles *UPDATED

Ok so have a seat and relax cuz there's a lot to discuss...

Well y'all, it's that time again... every year around this time, we get a beachy, tropical, island getaway, vaguely Hawaiian-ish collection...and this year is no exception.

A First Look mailer was sent out a few nights ago introducing this upcoming tropical floorset with a slew of basic bitchy bodycare, new handsoap with monoi oil  and a set of island getaway inspired candles...which for whatever reason they were making a huge deal about the graphics/labels which honestly weren't just ok but nothing groundbreaking or exciting

So there's 2 new scents in this collection...
Pineapple Sunrise - Juicy Island Pineapple, Crisp Persian Lime, Warm Coconut Musk(from what I've heard, not only is it nice but it's actually new)
Salt Flower - Salt Ocean Air, Coastal Orchids, Golden Sea Rays (Beach Orchid from last summer?)
And there's one "new" scent in wf bulb only..
Island Reef - Eucalyptus Waves, T…

NEWNESS UPDATE: Slatkin Homeworx Spring Candles Part 2 *UPDATED

So I know it's been a hella long time since I've posted anything on here but to be perfectly honest, I just haven't had anything to write about. BBW is just boring AF lately! I haven't stepped inside a BBW since my last WALK N SNIFF and haven't bought anything since SAS.

WALK 'N' SNIFF: Post SAS Spring 2018 Candles

My bf is sick (hopefully not with the flu) so while I was out getting him some stuff to get better, I peeked in a nearby BBW to sniff some post-SAS spring newness. So without further ado, let's start at the top and werk our our down thru all of the NEW things that are currently in stores

Pomelo Citron (7334M8A1) - straightup Capri Citron without a doubt

Coconut Colada (7348K3A1) - I was really really hoping this would be the now forgotten Bahama Fizz but no such luck..though on the plus side, it's totally new.  So you get a creamy blend of coconut and banana equally followed by a tiny hint of cinnamon sugar spice. The rum smells similar to the rum that's in Vanilla Spiced Pear and Cinnamon Rum Raisin. It's a cute scent and folks who love tropical coconut and/or banana scents, this bud's for you.

Rose ( - *sigh EVERYBODY is getting flimflammed and bamboozled by this scent...and I don't understand why. Everybody on social media are losing their shit strictly based o…
