NEWNESS UPDATE: Summer Miscellaneous and FALL 2017 TEST SCENTS *UPDATED*

OK I have a LOT of info to throw at you guys so fasten your seatbelts and hold on tight cuz here we go!

First of (I don't know when but soon) we'll be seeing additional "greetings" candles. And of course they're all repackages. They include...
  • Aloha Beaches = Aloha Kiwi Passionfruit
  • Good Vibes Only = Fiji White Sands
  • HAPPY BIRTH-YAY (dafuq?!) = Midnight Blue Citrus (again, dafuq?!)
  • Hooray = possibly Pink Apple Punch or Green Apple Champagne 
There's a final one called "Love Live Lake" which hasn't made any appearances yet as no is talking about it. As much as I would LOVE this to be Boathouse Row or Lakeside/Verbena Waters, I have a funny feeling it's just gonna be Bergamot Waters as BBW loves rehashing seemingly popular scents; plus BW was called "LAKEside Sunrise" at one point)


The next collection we should be seeing soon is called "Elements" and I've heard rumours that the Aromatherapy candles (Lavender Vanilla, Eucalyptus Spearmint, etc) are going to be phased out with these Elements candles replacing..don't quote me on that as it is a rumor. The candles all focus on one particular aromatherapy note -

  • Cinnamon - Clove & Nutmeg (Cinnamon & Clove Buds? Spice? Kitchen Spice?)
  • Eucalyptus - Eucalyptus & Peppermint (no word if this is Eucalyptus Spearmint/Eucalyptus Mint or not)
  • Lavender - Lavender & Lavadin 
  • Chamomile - Bergamot & Orange (this sounds more like Earl Grey than Chamomile)
  • Lemongrass - Lime & May Ching  (this may be interesting)
  • Pomegranate (word on the street this failed test scent/late addition Wild Huckleberry)
  • Juniper - Cedarwood & Eucalyptus (possible repackage of Silver Pine & Cedar
  • Rose - Lemon & Orange (huh?) (This is neither Winter Rose or Rosewater & Ivy)
  • Incense - Black Pepper & Bergamot (I will be highly surprised if this isn't Black Pepper Bergamot)
  • Vanilla - Nutmeg & Star Anise (ohhh,that's interesting. You don't see star anise too much in BBW scents)
  • Almond - Almond & Sandalwood (I got nuthin)
  • Cypress - Lemongrass & Thyme (ohh, this sounds intriguing)

And now the part that everyone has been waiting for...FALL SCENTS

The first testing collection is a bakery themed one..which I'm sure will make sooooo many people happen. And it's yet another "greetings" collection cuz you know BBW, once the find a gimmick, they run it into the ground til it's a fine powder. And the labels...oh boy. The labels have caused quite a stir on social; most people hate them while a few love them (with those who love them are angry at those who hate them). I'm in the hate camp - they just look cheap and unpolished with nothing autumnal about them. I'm not one to wax poetically about packaging but one of the great things about BBW's fall candles are fall themed pictures and labels. And I get it - the labels are supposed to look like blackboards at a coffeehouse and that is a cute idea but the execution i just all wrong;it literally looks construction cutouts you see on elementary/grade school classroom walls. At any rate, the labels aren't important, the scents are. For the moment, there are 2 new scents...

  • Hey Honey ~Honeyed Pear - Warm Poached Pear, Buttery Caramel, Honey Nectar (I'm really hoping this is Brandied Pear from the Slatkin days . This could also be Home~Sweet Caramel Comfort aka Caramel Apple )  
  • Spice it Up ~Cinnamon Pretzel Twist - Fresh Ground Cinnamon, Homemade Pretzel, Vanilla Cream Icing (apparently it's not Cinnamon Sugared Doughnuts but actually new. Still this could be a repackage - Kitchen Spice? or Brown Sugar Allspice
Returning scents include....
  • Hello Sugar ~ Warm Apple Pie
  • The Homeamde Goodness ~ Pumpkin Cupcake
  • Always a Fall Favorite ~ Hot Cocoa & Cream
  • The Best Fall Treat ~ Cinnamon Caramel Swirl
  • Life is Sweet ~ Vanilla Pumpkin Marshmallow

Lastly, we'll be seeing fall additions to the WB core collection. At the moment there 3 "new" scents..
  • Spiced Coconut Milk - Warm Toasted Coconut, Fresh Cream, Ground Nutmeg (of course BBW has throw in a coconut scent in fall. No word whether this is Pumpkin Coconut or Toasted Coconut)
  • Autumn Apricot - Harvest Apricot, Mango Nectar, Sugared Musk (I was intrigued with the apricot but lost me with the mango. This could be Harvest Peach from a few falls ago but I have a funny feeling it's Christmas's Peach Meringue)
  • Peppered Plum - Sweet Plum, Fresh Saffron Spice, Black Peppercorn (I'm very intrigued with this one! I think (and hope) this might Plum Wine Amber from the Slatkin days
Return scents include
  • Pumpkin Pecan Waffles
  • Marshmallow Fireside
  • Cranberry Woods
  • Crisp Morning Air 
  • Cider Lane

Now before anyone gets indignant about not seeing your fall favs, calm your coochies and be patient! This is NOT everything we'll be seeing fall, this just the beginning!
