NEWNESS UPDATE: Spring 2014 Candle-y Goodness Part Deux (updated)

Sweet Shop
These are all online and I believe have hit some stores. At this point I believe that what we see is all that we're gonna get

Strawberry Sorbet  (repackage of Strawberry Picnic) 
Raspberry Peach Macaron  (repackage of Sweet Macaron/Gelato?)
Cinnamon Sugared Doughnut
Watermelon Lemonade
Frosted Cupcake
Red Velvet Cupcake
Lemon Drops (very similar to Limoncello) mini only
Pink Bubblegum (mini only)
Pink Lemonade Pound Cake (mini/mason jar only)
 
Pineapple Creampuff, Honey Cinnamon Crumb Cake, and what was destined to be a fan favorite Lavender Marshmallow all got the axe


Destination (take three)
BBW took all of the fan favorites from the past and tossed the safest and most unassuming scents that were testing this year

London Calling
Paris Daydream
Aloha Waikiki
Mahalo Maui
Tokyo Petals (not a repackage of Japanese Cherry Blossoms)
Sydney Harbor (repackage with a twist of Renew&Refresh)
Sunny South Beach - wallflower only

Unless BBW plans on having a late release, Havana Heat, Bermuda Break, Emerald Isle, Mad About Madrid, Fleur De Provence, Sunny St. Tropez, The Greek Isles  

Recently BBW released two new scents for this line...both of which are coffee scents with almost the exact same notes...

Café Italia - coffee beans, vanilla cream (repackage of Espresso Bar)
Road to Kona - coffee beans, fresh milk, vanilla (wtf, really?!)




Fresh Picked
It's safe to assume that this is the next in line to be released. Some have appeared online already. Once again safe choices...

Lilac Blossom
Honeysuckle Bouquet
Garden Strawberry
Market Peach
Lemon Mint Leaf
Pink Passionfruit - passion fruit, guava and sugarcane

Pomelo Grapefruit - grapefruit, pomelo, orange
Snap Peas (very similar to Green Grass)

As for Heirloom Greens, Wild Berries, Lemon Cucumber and Sweet Spearmint, they were on clearance in test stores...in other words, say bye bye!

Three new candles have recently resurfaced...

Majestic Rose - rose petals, violet leaves, white amber (repackage of Flower Shop?)
Golden Sunflower - sunflowers, bergamot, white oak (repackage of Citrus Sunflower or Sunflower)
Farmstand Freesia - freesia, jasmine, garden air (Garden Freesia?)



Aloha Hawaii
Looks like this line has made it thru test mode and we should be getting glimpses of this line next month or so.


Pineapple Palm Grass - pineapple, green foilage
Lanakai Coconut - sweet, coconut , milk seawater, & palm tree leaves
Island Waters- water notes, lush green palm leaves, bamboo
Hawaiian Hibiscus - hibiscus  coconut & jasmine notes
Rainforest Sugarcane - lime, sugar cane, vanilla orchid
Black Sands - ocean mist, amber, cedarwood
White Orchid Lei - orchid petals, melon.

Red Guava Lava
Mango Dragonfruit
Mahalo Maui


*New Scents currently in test stores*
 
Provence Garden

This a new line of relatively new scents inspired by Provence in Southern France. It looks like this line has made it thru test phase as well as; I dunno when it'll appear in stores but I'm guessin later in spring (April-ish?)

Mediterranean Iris  - orange blossoms, blonde woods
French Lavender  - lavender, vanilla (not a repackage of Lavender Vanilla
Lemon Verbena verbena blossoms, lily of the valley
Citron Cedarwood - cedar, fresh citrus, green moss (repackage of Sage&Cedar/Black Tie)
Sundrenched Vineyard - white wine grapes, French oak (repackage of Cranberry Woods...wtf?!)
Springtime in Provence - raspberries, peaches, hint of citrus
Wild Poppies - poppy, juicy peach, sparkling lemon  (repackage of Poppy Sunshine)
Provence Garden -  garden greens, pear blossoms, ivy


Garden Party
This line is a little strange as it has candles that are already in other lines. Moreover the new scents are kinda underwhelming. This line is cute in theory but a little sloppy in execution


Spring (white wax) already in unnamed White Barn line
Lilac Blossom - already in White Barn line and Freshed Picked
Honeysuckle - also in White Barn line and Freshed Picked
Watermelon Lemonade - also in Sweet Shop
Sugar Berry Spritzer - sparkling water, sugarberries and elderflowers
Sundress - lilies, Tonka beans, bergamot
Pink Petal Tea Cake - garden rose petals, freshly baked cake, vanilla glaze
Garden Party - pink garden roses, pear blossoms, musk
Bloom peonies, lily of the valley, pear (repackage of First Bloom)


Coastal Cool
This is the newest line to hit test stores. These candles sport colored frosted tumblers and plastic lids instead of the metal ones. Most of these are repackages and they all seem to have the most vague notes

Coastal Sun - orange, grapefruit, California days (wtf?) (repackage of Citrus Flower)
Turquoise Waters - seaspray, sunlight, beachgrass (umm, ok?!)
Sunset Beach - fruit pops, sugar cane, sun rays (huh?)
Beach Day - saltwater, lemon leaves, citrus musk
Perfect Wave - water floweres, eucalyptus and surf (repackage of Eucalyptus Mint & Rain/White Barn Summer)
Palm Leaves - green palm, agave, aloe (repackage of White Palm?)
Pacific Coast Highway - ocean mist, vetiver, Pacific Breezes (again wtf?!) (repackage of Oakmoss & Vetiver?)
Suntan - sundrenched flowers, neroli blossoms, driftwood (repackage of Beachside)
Endless Weekend - summer mandarin, sun kissed magnolia, vanilla sandalwood
Ocean Driftwood - iced lavender, bergamot, artic air (repackage of Villa Bergamot/Bergamot Woods?)

  1. Is anyone else suprised at the short amount of time that the Sweet Shoppe items were on display in the stores? Maybe it was just my store, but they boxed up all of the Sweet Shoppe items and took them to the stock room.

    They said they were told to remove them and put the Fresh Picked items in their place.

    Sweet Shoppe was only out in my store for about 3 weeks...and that might be stretching it.

    I was just surprised, seeing as how they hyped it up so much.

  2. Nope, not surprised at all. For whatever reason, BBW is releasing a lot of scents lines, more than usual. I'm sure they knew that Sweet Shoppe would be hit and sell out pretty quickly so they probably felt confident enough to move on.
