NEWNESS UPDATE: Spring 2017 Test Scents Part Deux *UPDATED*

Well gang, thought the last bunch of testing spring scents were random as's about to get more random!

Another collection has been making the rounds in both test and non-test stores..don't get excited! We've certainly seen some doozies lately nad you would think BBW would've learned their lesson but nope. Once again, they've lazily thrown together random scents in a nonsensical incohesive collection. So it's supposed to be a bright spring day/down home/country theme - think Happy Home/White Barn Market/Screendoors and Sweet Tea. It's a weird mix of herbal, floral, bakery and fruity.  New scents include...

Blue Sandalwood and Sage - Sandalwood, Crisp Bergamot, Lavender, Fresh Garden Sage (these notes sound suspiciously like Villa Bergamot/Bergamot Woods. It could also be Sage & Cedar/Black Tie)

Sweet Cherry Pie - Bright Red Cherries, Flaky Pie Crust, Crushed Almonds (this had better not be Creamy Nutmeg or Roasted Chestnuts & Cherries..  I've heard quite a few people say it smells like Warm Apple Pie mixed with Black Cherry Merlot)

White Tea and Pear - Sweet White Tea, Crisp Bartlett Pear, Sparkling Bergamot (okay...enough with the f***ing bergamot already!!! I sweartagawd, every spring/summer BBW becomes obsessed with some note and put it in everything - pomelo, gardenia, driftwood, coconut and now bergamot. Anyway, I'm REALLY hoping that this is Green Tea &White Pear from the Slatkin scents, one of his premier scents..but I have a funny feeling this is gonna be some Sparkling Pear Riesling type BS)

Sunlit Garden - Orchid Petals, Lush Green Leaves, Bright Marigold (Some say Green Grass, some say Provence Garden while others say Veranda Garden )

Strawberry Mimosa - Wild Strawberry, Effervescent Lemon Zest, Sugar Crystals (first off, this sounds more like strawberry lemonade that a mimosa, which is orange juice and champagne/sparkling white wine...that said, supposedly this smells like Watermelon Lemonade with strawberries)

Mahogany Cotton - (yes you read that right - another Mahogany Teakwood blend, this time with cotton... can't)

Returning scents include: Lemon Mint LeafFresh Cut Lilacs, Honeysuckle Bouquet,Peach Bellini and Watermelon Lemonade (for f*** sakes...although you already knew BBW was going to throw this mess into the mix)


Looks like I won't be spending hardly any money at this spring. BBW, my bank account thanks you!
