NEW IDEA AND RANT OF THE DAY: Dog Days of Summer Candles

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

  1. Happy birthday!! I would like to nominate Seaside Escape form Slakin era to the dog days of summer. Onto the holiday test debacle, my friend (iambored24) called Columbus test and manager recognized him and said 11. We then saw reports of the 7th and when I commented on a post I recived a replay that another test store is exactly saying the same thing.. 11th. That's two unrelated people having the same info... Is it true??!? You tell me.. You know how BBW does things!

  2. Happy Birthday!!
    They had a scent called Melon Sorbet that was out about 6 or 7 years ago that would be great. It was a straight up Honeydew scent. I'm buying tons of Sweater Weather so I'm stocked on that one when it's gone again. But I'm not ready to burn anything other than summer scents just yet. It just doesn't feel like fall when it's 86 degrees outside before you factor in the humidity.

  5. Happy belated birthday! I forgot I had a Coastal Sun tucked away and pulled it out last weekend. We're having stupid hot weather right now even though the days are getting shorter, so this one is great.
