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

Well gang, thought the last bunch of testing spring scents were random as hell...it'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)

Lame...lame...LAME!!!!!

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