NEW IDEA OF THE DAY: Future Fall Collections

OK BBW, it's painfully clear that you guys are in a slump. Never fear, the Bronze Blogger is here. Here are some ideas right off the type of my head...

Ok, so you need to a good summer to fall transitional collection. Th Cork & Vine collection in '15 was cute in theory, this year's Cider & Vine is just random and all over the place. Let's just let that collection die in peace. I've said it before and I'll say again, you guys need to have a summer fair collection to bridge the gap from summer to fall.

Let's call it... "Autumn County Fair" or "Fun Fall Festival"

There are so many scents that would work in this collection

  • Bring back Funnel Cake and actually have a candle for it
  • Cotton Candy
  • Apple Crumble
  • Apple Ale 
  • Summer Boardwalk
  • Chocolate Bacon Cupcake
  • Harvest Peach (but call it "Peach Cobbler)
  • Caramel Apple
  • Pumpkin Banana Muffin 
  • Pumpkin Spiced Cheesecake

And speaking of pumpkin..can yall PLEASE stop with the all pumpkin collections? We've had 4 years back to friggin back of nothin but pumpkin..and most of the scents in this collection either don't smell like pumpkin or have actual pumpkin notes. This year was the worst offender of scents not having pumpkin in them - Pumpkin Woods...Pumpkin Fireside..really BBW? Let's give pumpkin a break and have instead of a collection inspired by pumpkin's overshadowed autumnal brethren..APPLE!

Let's call it..."An Apple a Day"

There are soooooo many applelicious scents to choose from...

  • Autumn Apple
  • Caramel Apple
  • Apple Crumble
  • Cider Lane/Warm Caramel Cider
  • Farm Apple Cookie
  • Pumpkin Apple
  • Cider Donuts
  • Apple Ale
  • Applewood Bonfire
  • Red Radiant Maple
  • Apple Pumpkin Pancakes
  • Warm Apple Pie

And notice that ALL of these have actual APPLE NOTES!

And there are so many other new apple scents that play around with..

Apple Butter, Apple Ginger Cupcake, Cran-apple Tart, Apple Crumbcake, Apple Peanut Butter Cookies, Apple Spice Tea, Apple Raisin Cinnamon Roll, Walnut Apple Cluster...

..which segues nicely to my next idea. Wouldn't it be nice to have an fall version of Sweet Shoppe?

Let's call it "Autumn Cafe"

Just a nice simple collection of autumnal gourmand scents you'd find in an upscale bakery

  • Cinnamon Sugared Doughnuts
  • Apple Crumble
  • Chocolate Bacon Cupcake
  • Spiced Pumpkin Cider
  • Spiced Pumpkin Cheesecake
  • Brandied Pear (Tart?)
  • Vanilla Chai (or Iced Almond Chai)
  • Pumpkin Caramel Latte
  • Oatmeal Raisin Cookie
  • Blueberry Pumpkin Patch (but call it "Spiced Blueberry Muffin)
  • Banana Nutmeg Bread Pudding

Now you guys have been attempting to fancify your image with classy expensive hoity-toity collections, like the Marble collection..yet the scents you choose sort of defeat the purpose. That said, I'd like to see a collection of scents that on typically sees or rather smells in the fall but a little but more high-end. A fancier version of Fresh Picked. Fall scents for adults...

Let's call it "Elegant Harvest"

  • Spiced Cider
  • Brandied Pear
  • Cranberry Harvest
  • Plum Wine Amber
  • Blackberry Bramble Tea
  • Porchside Pumpkin
  • Kitchen Spice
  • Home ~ Sweet Caramel Comfort

Now finally, how about something for the fellas?! I know you're main demographic are women from teeny-boppers to grandmas but a good portion of us guys, both gay and straight, shop at BBW for OURSELVES! Can a brotha get a candle and body wash that doesn't smell like flowers and cupcakes?! Y'all have "cologney" scents, especially fall ones; why not have a mandle collection with accompanying bodywash and body spray?!

Let's call it ...Men's Signature Collection: "The Great Outdoors"

You've got plenty of options...

  • Black Pepper Bergamot
  • Boathouse Row
  • Flannel 
  • Autumn Sunshine
  • the original Tailgate
  • Mountain Leaves

All are outdoorsy..all are sexy as f***

And notice I did not mention Mahogany Stankwood! Or Bergamot Farters!

Just something to think about BBW..... 


  1. Someone needs to send this blog to BBW corporate because you should be working for them!! Such amazing ideas! ~Jennifer

    1. Thank you! I would love work with/help out corporate!

      It would be in BBW's best interest to listen well as other hardcore customers

  2. Lmao on bergamot farters!! You, sir, are hilarious. I'm most interested in the wild fellas collection (or whatever you called it)

    1. I am for more mandles...just with no mahogany

  3. Black Baltic Pearl
    Autumn Nights / Cardamom & Suede

    Please BBW bring them back

  4. I would love an Autumn Camping collection with Sunset S'Mores (marshmallow fireside with a chocolate note, but more fragranced than Summer S'Mores), Campsite (Juniper, Pine, some kind of earthy accord and a cool rain note), Campfire Cider (spiced cider or even pomegranate cider), Crisp Morning Air (repackage Pinecone), Warm and Cozy (a mix of flannel and applewood bonfire)

    1. Oops I forgot BBW already had a crisp morning air candle! You could call it sunrise hike or something instead

    2. That's actually a damn good idea! The closest we've ever come to a camping collection was the Summer Lakeside collection back in '13. I would be all for an autumnal version of that!
