If you are enjoying these wonderful spring/summer fragrances from Bath and Body Works, their semi annual sale will be here before you know it!  I hope you are making your list  I am very excited to see that Wild Honeysuckle is on the list to show up and Velvet Tuberose.  I have heard such great things about them and never tried them before.  I will be on the look out for body wash, anti bacterial hand soap, and candles during the SAS.  I like it when I can find three wick candles for $8.  I haven’t seen the price drop below that and if it did it might have been for scents that I didn’t care for.  Some of the candles are marked down 50% off..Paradise Daiquiri, Jungle Kiss, Seaside Escape, Passion Flower, and Drenched Apple Flower.  I don’t know how long that will last so if you like any of those scents, you may want to swing by the store or order online.  They may go back to regular price right before the SAS.

. During the SAS, I usually check the website for random candles too. There has been times when recently discontinued scents pop up on there.

Sale starts June 13th!

Alright so I broke down and went shopping at B&BW on Friday. The 4oz candles are on sale 2 for $10 I couldn't resist! I don't usually buy the 4 oz candles because they often misbehave while they are burning but since there are SO many scents out I wanted to try some scents that I was hesitant to buy in a three wick (14.5oz). Here are the scents I purchased at the store:
Raspberry Sun Tea
Sun Tan
Summer Boardwalk
Pink Sangria
Root Beer Float
Ice Cream Shop (mini candle)
Beach Cabana
Blackberry Grapefruit

Well it wasn't enough!! LOL!!! So I placed an order online:
Sea Spray
Seaside Escape
Island Colada
Japanese Cherry Blossom
2 more Root Beer Floats
Summer Boardwalk

I did get a free bottle of Sweet Pea lotion and a floral bag....oh and $1 shipping when I spent $25!
Here's what I think so far:
Raspberry Sun Tea - smells like the powder instant iced tea.
Sun Tan - I *need* this in a three wick. It's a perfect beachy scent.
Ice Cream Shop - reminds me of Sticky Toffee Pudding ( just because toffee is one of the notes I can pick out). I love it and can't wait for a 2 for $20 ...I'll stock up :D
Beach Cabana - cooling off with some aloe filled lotion.
Ii will review each one of these scents separately in video and blog post.
