RANT OF THE DAY/NEWNESS UPDATE: Yes, Virginia..There are more Winter 2017 Candles *UPDATED*

Unless you were trapped on a deserted island, you've probably heard and/or seen the grand return of Pink Petal Teacake...and the hype is palpable! Everyone is absolutely losing their proverbial shit...and by everyone, I mean newbies who weren't into BBW back when it first came out and heard Tinadivalicious' constant mention of it.

At any rate, PPTC is indeed part of a collection and the remaining scents have appeared on social media..and I have to say, I'm kinda intrigued. At the moment, there are 7 scents...



  • SOFT ~ Pink Petal Tea Cake - Rose Petals, Fluffy Cake and Orange Essential Oil (of course this is the grand return of the original )
  • NOOK ~ No Place Like Home - Soft Musk, Vanilla Bean and Cedarwood Essential Oil (I'm realllly hoping this is Vanilla Cedarwood from backintheday)
  • COMFORT ~ Soft Cashmere Blanket - Fluffy Cotton, Sheer Musk and Lavender Essential Oil (so this could be anything; I'm hoping that it's Peace ~ Iced Vanilla Woods though it could also be Lavender Linens. At worse it could be the horrific Cashmere from backintheday)
  • CHILL ~ Calming Lavender Spruce - Fir Needle, Lavender and Orange Essential Oil (Please please PLEASE be Winter Mint & Spruce )
  • COZY ~ Warm Cup of Cocoa - Milk Chocolate, Steamed Milk and Nutmeg Essential Oil (obviously this is Hot Cocoa & Cream)
  • INDULGE ~ Cinnamon Rum Raisin - Cinnamon, Nutmeg Essential Oils and notes of Spiced Rum  (could this be the return of Oatmeal Raisin Cookie)


So now that that is out of the way, it's time to be shady and spill some T...

For those of you who have seen these candles either on the 'gram or in person, you may have thought to yourself that the look of these candles are rather unique (not necessarily good but unique) and they didn't really seem to fit or belong.

...this was brought my attention by a fellow candle enthusiast...

So this is from a Scandinavian candle company called Scandinavisk.  Koto (Finnish for "home") is one of their signature scents. BBW's NOOK candle looks just alike, color and tagline and all. The design in BBW's collection is extremely similar to Scandnavisk's Christmas themed candles .

It's unknown whether BBW's design team ripped off Scandinavisk's graphics or if there was some kind of contractual deal, but the fact remains that BBW is blatantly copying another candle company's look.

I mean really BBW... is this what it's come down to?! You're "using" labels from outside graphic designers to copy Victoria's Secret's candles... You're testing new squat tumbler sizes to copy Slatkin's Homeworx candles...and now this...

Who the hell is running BBW that thinks this is ok?!

  1. Comfort smells like Sea Island Cotton from the Slatkin days...not sure if its an exact match but if not its very very close!

    1. That makes sense.
      After I posted this some, I read on IG someone saying that it kinda had a Fresh Linen/Fresh Cotton kind of vibe

  2. Thank you for alerting us to this issue. This is unexpected and definitely nothing we have endorsed. Our design has been active for 5 years and remains our intellectual property. We will investigate further.
