NEWNESS UPDATE: Winter 2014 Test Scent List

I know I'm VERY late to the game talkin about this, but hey better late than never. Anyhoo, let's talk about the vast array of new upcoming scents shall we.

So first we have these colored glass LIDLESS candles a la Coastal Cool. Nothing exciting, nothing new! This collection includes Bergamot Woods, Sandalwood Citrus, Renew&Refresh, Mahogany Teakwood, Cranberry Woods, Fresh Balsam, Leaves, Fireside, Eucalyptus Mint and Lavender Vanilla. Also in this collection are three Thanksgiving themed candles, all repackages - Thanksgiving Morning aka Pumpkin Pecan Waffles, Thanksgiving Harvest aka Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin (bleggghh) and lastly, Thanksgiving Feast aka Frosted Cranberry. I will admit I do like the looks of these candles, very sleek and sophisticated looking but as I said early, there nothing new and exciting. Oh these are all available online.

Next are the Opulence and Intrigue (or is it Intrigue and Opulence) collection...sigh, oh boy. You would think that B&BW woul…

RANT OF THE DAY: Happy First Day of Fall!!!

So today is the Autumnal Equinox and the start of my favorite time of the year - FALL!!! I love everything about fall - drinkin cider, pickin apples, watchin the leaves change, wearin cute sweaters, makin soups, carvin pumpkins, eating and drinkin anything that says pumpkin spice! And there are soooo many things in this season for me to look forward - my birthday (which was two weeks ago btw - shoutout to my fellow Virgos), two of my best friends' birthdays (more Virgos), my mom's birthday (yet another Virgo), my partner's birthday (Libra), new tv shows, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Black Friday! And fall is probably the season I burn the most candles - I LOVE fall scents. Give me anything that smells like apple or cinnamon or cranberries (not so much pumpkin) and I'm a happy homo! B&BW, in my opinion, really shines in the fall; we've gotten sooooo many amazing fallgasmic scents over the past couple of years. With that said, let me show you scents that I have to ha…

WALK 'N' SNIFF: We Love Fall & Autumn Nights

So for those of y'all who don't know, I recently took a trip to England and Scotland with my bf and we just got back a few days ago. I had an absolutely amazing time but lord, my ass worn out!!!! Anyway today I felt like goin into the City so I thought I'd take a trip to B&BW; I DESPERATELY wanted to exchange Pumpkin Cinnamon Bun and especially Pumpkin Sugared Doughnuts. Plus I wanted to sniff stuff that wasn't in stores before I left for the UK..kill two birds with one stone y'know. So after doing my exchanges (the girl SA was new and didn't know how to do exchanges so another *very cute* guy SA helped; ordinarily I'd get annoyed but the  girl SA was adorable) and evading the very talkative and overly helpful floor SAs, I walked around and got my sniff on!

So let's talk about the "We Love Fall" candles. I'm not gonna waste my time and yours talkin about 
Leaves, Mahogany Teakwood, Sweater Weather and Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin cuz y'a…
