NEWNESS UPDATE: Spring 2017 Test Scents *UPDATED*

Well it's not even Christmas yet and already spring scents are popping up in test stores..and from what I've seen and heard, there's not very exciting and random as hell

First off we're getting yet another marble collection...which I understand why seeing how abysmal the sales were for the fall marble candles. And like the fall ones, the scent choices aren't cohesive at all...


Mineral Springs - Soothing Mineral Water, Night Blooming Water Lily, Dash of Lime (no one seems to pinpoint what this scent is other than it's not Desert Rain or Sparkling Limemade or Beach Day or Lily Pond)

Bergamot Mint - Sparkling Italian Bergamot, Crisp Eucalyptus, Mint Leaves (There was an Eucalyptus Mint & Tangerine bodywash backintheday. There also was a  Nectarine Mint candle back in the Slatkin days. Anyway by all accounts this smells like Eucalyptus Mint with a hint of citrus)

Copper Coconut - Raw Coconut, Sea Salted Shells, Soft Amber (Lanikai Coconut?)

Returning scents include - Cinnamon Spiced Vanilla aka Cinnamon Sugared Doughnut and Black Teakwood aka Mahogany Stankwood



Next we're getting more additions to the WB core collection,,,again more random scents thrown haphazardly together

Black Tea Rose - English Tea Leaves, Fragrant Rose Petals, Aromatic Cedar (new scent and it smells like notes)

Lily of the Valley - Lily of the Valley, Creamy Musk, Garden Lilies (there was a candle of the same name spring 2014 which smelled like a watered down Lilac Blossom but I'm told this new one doesn't smell like that)

Orange Blossom and Driftwood - Orange Blossom Petals, Crisp Bergamot, Soft Sea-washed Wood (Summer Bonfire?)

Spring Leaves - Gala Apple, Warm Cinnamon Stick, Crisp Bartlett Pear (wtf?! What do these notes have to do with "spring leaves". I've heard that this has a Spice Apple Toddy vibe to it..again wtf?!)

Beach Blossoms - Ocean Lotus, Soft Beach Air, Warm Musk (Oceanside? Sunrise Lagoon? Beach Day?)

Lavender Coconut
Refreshing Lavender, Warm Coconut, Vanilla Bean(dude..really? lavender and coconut? When is the coconuttiness gonna end?! At any rate, I heard this basically smells like Lavender Marshmallow/Lavender Macaron....I've smelled this in person..it's decent. It basically smells like Lavender Macaron with a heavier more astrigent lavender note with a hint of coconut...think macaroon or snowball mixed with edible lavender)

Sea Salt Pineapple - White Pineapple, Soft Sea Spray, Beachside Mango (This could very well be Pineapple Palm Grass but my money is on it being Pineapple Punch from way backintheday)

Mahogany Peach - Sweet Peach, Luxe Dark Mahogany, Iced Lavender (yep this is not an effed hoax, it's real, it exists...I've heard it smells awful, exactly what you'd think it would smell like - Mahogany Stankwood with mushy peach)

Spring BalsamSoft Pine Branches, Ocean Water, Sea Salted Air (what the everlasting f***?!!! I just can't....)

Returning scents include - Bergamot Waters, Pineapple Mango, Eucalyptus Mint, Watermelon Lemonade, Pure White Cotton, Endless Weekend and Mahogany Coconut



Last but certainly not least, it looks like we're getting a Fresh Picked collection, which we haven't had since 2014. Don't get too excited though...

Honey & Tangerine - Sugared Honeycomb, Golden Tangerine, Warm Tonka Bean (new scent and it smells the way it sounds)

Tomato Vine - Sunkissed Tomato Leaves, Fresh Spring Greens, Hint of Lemon (repackage of Heirloom Greens)

Sugared Lemon Zest - Bright Lemon Zest, Sorrento Lemons, Cane Sugar (I thought maybe Limoncello or Sugared Lemons but from what I've heard it's closer to Slatkin's Lemon Gelato)

Returning scents include - Eucalyptus Mint & Rain, Georgia Peach, Lavender Vanilla, Wild Sage & Aloe, White Gardenia and Praline Pecan


If this is any indication of what spring will look like next spring, I foresee a lot of money remaining in my bank account. However it may too early to judge as BBW is always full of surprises. We shall see....

    1. I'm waiting for French Lavender to come back as well, Diane! I love that scent! I'm also hoping that Beautiful Day comes back this season! PS, the Lily of the Valley candle smells amazing for anyone wondering.
