I meant to post this yesterday buuuuuut yesterday was my BIRTHDAY!!!!!
The dog days of summer have been over and Labor Day has already passed. And even though the autumn equinox is still a couple of weeks away, summer is pretty much over. People have been burning fall candles for well over and month and we're supposed to seeing more fall scents come our way (supposedly) this week. And the winter holiday scents are gonna be testing soon...I'm sure most you have heard about that debacle. I can't even think about all of that cuz Im still in summer mode.
That said, it would be nice if there was a small summer themed collection of scents for those of us who love fall but just aren't ready for fall yet. It doesn't have to be anything new, not necessarily beachy, definitely nothing tropical
For this collection, I nominate the following...
Summertime Soda - I will never understand why this was never brought back despite it being an underground hit. A lemon lime soda scent is perfect for summer
Melon - why have we never had a watermelon scent for summer. In the past,this scent has failed twice and I never understood why
Vanilla Firewood - only because it smelled just like barbeque sauce
Coastal Sun - to me, CS is summertime in a jar. It's bright, it's fresh, it's sunny, just perfect!
Ice Cream Shop - I'm not a big fan of this scent but it makes sense to have an ice cream scent for a dog days of summer collection. It definitely needs to be tweaked though; add more chocolate and vanilla to make smell more like Neapolitan ice cream or maybe banana or fudge like banana split/sundae
Poolside - the original Poolside aka Suntan. This smelled like straightup legit authentic suntan lotion
Beach Day - I just love this scent for summer. Probably because it's... cologney. But there is something summery and beachy about this scents - you smell the saltiness of sea and in the seabreeze, you feel the sand between your toes, the sun on your skin and watching hot tanned guys in speedos
