So the Thanksgiving candles are (or should be) already in stores...yyyeeahhh. Is it just me or does this collection seem random as hell?! Just random scents haphazardly thrown together with very little thought or reason. I thought about this collection and came up with replacement scents that just makes more sense.
Cheers - So as you know this is Wine Cellar\Smoked Berries & Incense. This isn't that great of a scent and doesn't smell like wine, mulled or otherwise, at all
REPLACEMENT: Spiced Pumpkin Cider - this was a new and popular scent last fall so it boggles my mind that it wasn't brought back this fall (or any cider scent for that matter). SPC just makes sense; cider is an autumnal beverage and the pumpkin and mulling spices makes it very Thanksgiving-y. Mulled wine to me is more of a winter beverage and as for the candle, it smells more like mulled perfume than mulled wine
Or : Pumpkin Caramel Latte - seeing as though this oddly this didn't see the light of day this year (despite being a fall staple for the past 6 years) due to "production issue", you would think it would be nice for it to finally be available for it fans. PCL again makes more sense than Wine Cellar
Home - I am not a fan of Pumpkin Spiced Cheesecake aka Brown Butter Praline. I bought it and gushed about it but the more I sniffed it, the more I started to dislike it. I havent burned it and I plan on returning and exchanging it. Anyhoo, to me PSC doesn't conjure warm cozy memories of home; its not a comforting and cozy scent at all
REPLACEMENT: Home ~ Sweet Caramel Comfort - HELLO the name says it all. I know BBW chose PSC because of the " pumpkin" aspect thus it has a "Thanksgivingy" vibe. However the original Home aka Caramel Apple is far more warm and cozy and comforting and inviting. It has that "wrapped in a warm blanket" appeal that PSC simply doesn't have.
Feast - generic..generic...GENERIC! I am sick to damn death of straight up caramel scents. No substance, just mass appeal for the sake of being mass appeal. And who eats brittle on Thanksgiving?!
REPLACEMENT: Pumpkin Pie - Come on, it is simply not Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie!
Gather - this made me facepalm a hole in my skull! I mean wtf?! What made BBW think that this was a good idea?!!
REPLACEMENT: Harvest Gathering - this makes waaayyyy more sense! It was a stupid idea to put HG in the Cork & Vine collection ; it should've been in one of the real fall collections
OR: Butternut Squash - y'know, pumpkin or gourds
OR: Toffee Glazed Popcorn - if you guys at BBW are deadset on the Indian maize label, at least TGP is popCORN!!!
Harvest, Thankful and Welcome can stay
And now the bougie chunky leaves 12oz'ers. Personally if I had a say in the marketing, I wouldve done away with these except for Cranberry Woods and placed that with the regular Thanksgiving candles..which makes sense as there is a Cranberry Woods wallflower as "Harvest". But if BBW insisted on keeping these.....
Pecan Pumpkin Waffles - I am not a fan of this scent at all and personally I dont think it fits; Leaves, SCP and CW are all conceptual scents as opposed to a foodie/bakery scent. I feel like PPW was added strictly for mass appeal
REPLACEMENT: Nutmeg and Spice - Im shocked that this has disappeared cuz it was a very popular scent. I wasn't particularly very fond of it however it appreciated the fact that it was sweet without being cloying and despite what notes suggested, it was a very sophisticated...way more than PPW.
Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin.... no comment
REPLACEMENT: Heirloom Pumpkin/Pumpkin Carving - everyone knows that HP/PC is the supwrior pumpkin scent; for the life of me, I continue to not understand why BBW insists on constantly throwing Shit Cinnamon Poopkin in our faces!
Leaves and Cranberry Woods can stay
