NEWNESS UPDATE: Spring 2019 Test Candles 2nd Phase

So my fellow BBW'ers, there are more candles on the horizon. It's just not spring at BBW without an onslaught of tropical/beachy scents. So if the first phase of spring candles didn't quite tickle your tropical fancy, the following may do the trick.

This collection all have wraparound labels with various beachy scenes on them. New scents include...

Seaside Daze - Sparkling Bergamot, Orange Blossoms, Coconut Milk (word on the street is this smells quite powdery. If it's not new, I'm gonna go with Orange Blossom & Driftwood)

Flamingo Beach - Pink Summer Berries, Juicy Orange Dewy White Petals (hmm..Sugared Citrus Sorbet? Seaside Mimosa?)

Island Hideaway - Fresh Sea Salt, Coconut Water, Lush Rainforest Cedar (so this was a failed test scent from 2017.....)

(.....the notes are completely different so it's possible that this new version could be completely different; BBW is known to pull switcheroos with returning old scents *cough cough Caramel Apple)

Returning scents include Island Margarita, Ocean Driftwood, Mango Maitai, Waikiki Beach Coconut, Pineapple Sunrise

There are also 2 more "new" candles but the labels are totally different; they're white with painted on watercolor-esque palm tree leaves on them. The scents are...

Oceanside Garden - Fresh Lemon, Sweet Jasmine, Cedarwood (this sounds suspiciously like Green Grass)

Banana Cabana - Sunkissed Banana, Sea Spray, Warm Vanilla (I thought maybe Pink Sands & Petals but from what I've heard really get a baked banana note with vanilla with a Beach Cabana-esque beach/ocean air vibe...doesn't sound like anyting from years past)

Lastly, there are 2 random quote-esque candles
Mermaid Life aka Turquoise Waters
Aloha Beaches (NOT Aloha Kiwi Passionfruit like last year) aka Mahogany Coconut..with the weirdest notes ever - "roasted chestnuts, caramelized sugar, sspiced rum" DAFUQ?!

I've no clue as to when these will be in stores; my guess would be next month.

  1. I'm disappointed that they seem to have completely given up Honolulu Sun, that's two years now that they haven't used it for the spring/summer candles. I'm not the hugest fan personally, but it's one of the only B&BW scents my mom likes, I usually try to get it for her for her birthday or mother's day.

  2. DAFUQ is an understatement....smh

  3. i wish more cologne fragrances would come out.
