NEWNESS UPDATE: Rumor has it...
Rumour has it...rumor has it...
Rumour has it there's a lot more candles in store!
So lifeinsidethepage/Bathandbodyworksdailyfinds released a list of upcoming surprise candles and everyone, including myself, went apeshit!
Okay so first of all, if you thought we were done with winter, think again. We're going (fingers crossed) see another Christmasy themed collection called "Home for the Holidays"..with a slew of returning Slatkin classics...
Cranberry Pear Bellini, Chestnut & Clove, CREAMY NUTMEG, Hot Buttered Rum, Merry Mistletoe, MINT CHOCOLATE, Red Velvet Cupcake, SPICE (The capitalized ones are scents we haven't seen in years)
As excited as I am to see so many Slatkin scents returning, I do have a concern... I'm hoping BBW brings back these back in their original form and not do a switcheroo and replace them with newer scents that smell similar. For example..
Cranberry Pear Bellini = Pomegranate Prosecco Punch or Pink Champagne
Merry Mistletoe = Holly Berry Balsam
Mint Chocolate = Marshmallow Peppermint or Mint Mocha Bark
Spice - Cinnamon Pinecone
That's gonna really piss me off!
In addition to these, it looks like there are gonna be add ons to the collections in stores.
Marshmallow Fireside and Mahogany Stankwood (for whatever reason) is being added on the sparkly label candles as well as a "new" scent called "Candied Pecans"...don't get excited, it's a repackage of Pumpkin Pecan Waffles/Pecan Praline Cobbler. There is also talk of another "new" scent called "Sweet Cinnamon Spice"..I'll be highly surprised if that isn't Shit Cinnamon Poopkin" Sadly it doesn't look like we're gonna see Chestnut & Birch or Cinnamon Pinecone
Also Winter Candy Apple, Twisted Peppermint and random ass Frosted Cupcake (again, for whatever reason) are being added to the New Years/Celebration/silver bow collection
With all of the seasonal scents arriving way too early in stores, you can expect to see spring scents in stores fairly soon...which is beyond ridiculous but that's BBW for ya
So you know BBW LOVES tropical scents for spring. That said we're getting yet another vague tropical collection called "Let's Get Away" Returning scents include...
Beach Cabana, Coconut Leaves, Mango Dragonfruit and White Sands
New scents are: Jasmine Waters, Raspberry Lime Margarita (Raspberry Sun Tea?) and Tobacco Flower (Havana Heat?)
Lastly there's another collection in the works...and it's random as hell. It's called "Spa Day" - basically it's watered down non-descript version of the Ciao Italy collection last spring with even more randomly thrown together scents. And get this - theyre reusing labels from both the Ciao Italy collection and the Southwest collection
Scents include:Lemon Verbena, Indigo Sky, White Tea & Ginger, Eucalyptus Mint & Rain, Blue Ocean Waves and Mahogany Coconut
There are two "new scents - Vanilla Flower and Bergamot & Suede..sounds intriguing right. Think again, repcakages - Vanilla Beach Flower and Villa Bergamot/Bergamot Woods.
