NEWNESS UPDATE: Fancy-schmancy Christmas Candles

Thought we were done with Christmas/winter candles? Think again!

Thanks to the efforts of Jenn aka @theshow78 and _scentsgalore on IG,  we have firsthand glimpses of whats in store.

It's another lidless fancy decorative colored glass tumbler collection with a sort of old fashioned Christmas vibe and at first glance, it seems to be half and half mix of old and new...the new being...

Caramel Sandalwood - Creamy Caramel, Luxurious Sandalwood, Fresh Cinnamon Bark, Tonka Bean (so right off the bat, it isn't Caramel Woods from this fall; it's leaning towards being possible newness. By all accounts it's a"cologney" scent with slight caramel flavor)

 Fireside Christmas - Firewood Bundle, Pine Needles, Crisp Eucalyptus, Smoked Incense (it's been said this has a Fresh Balsam/Vanilla Balsam vibe with a hint of money is on this being Winter Night from backintheday)

Iced Balsam - Iced Balsam, Aromatic Cedar, Bergamot, Snow-kissed Apple (sounds like Alpine Frost from '14 but nope. I thought it might be WB Christmas/Apple Garland but again, nope. The general consensus is it smells like Fresh Balsam with orange)

Returning scents include Spiced Apple Toddy (why?), Frosted Cranberry (again why?), Twisted Peppermint (really?!) This makes no sense, these are already out in another collection and frankly all 3 are not that great to be in 2 different collections. And none of these..well except maybe TP, are remotely Christmasy...Winter, sure. Fireside, sure why not. Evergreen, yass. Tis the Season..hell yeah..but SAT and FC? No and no!

This would've been the perfect opportunity to bring back some holiday classics from backintheday - Vanilla Spice, Sleigh Ride, Winter Wonderland, Frosted Tree, Holiday Pomander, Holiday Gumdrop, Candied Sugarplum, Holly Wreath, Merry Mistletoe


Rant over!

So these are currently testing. No clue when or if they are being released. If they are, maybe end of November. Though they could be a WB exclusive collection or they might not be released at all. And if you're wondering about the price, wonder no more..make sure you're sitting down and not drinking anything..
