Summer is usually my all time favorite season to scoop up those Bath & Body Works scents!!! I love all things beachy smelling, fruity and just straight up yummy!!!! However, this years haul?!? A tad bit interesting....
The packaging this year? omg!!! Design team gets a gold star because so freaking cute!!!
The scents however?!? I was left thinking this haul was just ok! Then again, I did order all of these since stores here in New York are still closed, so maybe I would have had better luck in store where I could have taken advantage of the try me before buying.
Keep on reading to find out what you should scoop up and what you might want to pass on regardless of the fabulous packaging.
Summer Boardwalk ~ Caramel-Glazed Popcorn, Warm Taffy-Apples, Salty Sweet Cream with Essential Oils. I feel like this candle is straight up fall. Creamy apple is all I smell! Not horrible, but not summer at all.
Warm Apple Pie ~ Baked Granny Smith Apple, Melted Brown Sugar, Flaky Homemade Crust with Essential Oils. I knew this would smell like fall! I purchased this candle solely for the packaging! Perfect for July 4th!!!
Berry Waffle Cone ~ Sweet Summer Berries, Golden Waffle Cone, Creamy Vanilla with Essential Oils! This was the candle I was most excited about!!!! Berry & vanilla sounded so yummy! However, this candle smells like maple syrup mixed with berry. But a horrible scent, but not what I was expecting lol... reminds me of fall!
Sandcastles & Sunshine ~ Salted Starfruit, Ocean Mist, White Driftwood with Essential Oils. I was super excited for this candle as well!!! Starfruit sounded, well fruity & I’m all about a fruity candle! However, this candle smells like a clean house lol.... maybe even clean laundry. I love the smell of cleanliness, so no hate! Just wasn’t expecting such a scent from something claiming to be starfruit.
Beachfront Blanket ~ A transportive blend of fresh white linen, summer sunrays & soft musk. This lotion has the cutest packaging EVER & it’s smells exactly as it claims. Fresh linen with a little bit of musk.
Coastal Hydrangeas ~ A summer bouquet of fresh hydrangeas, ocean mist & golden apple. I was expecting this lotion to be straight up floral and shockingly it’s not. Floral mixed with apple. An odd combo, but not bad!
Sea Salt & Lavender ~ A calming, coastal blend of fresh sea salt, blooming lavender & sun-drenched sands. This lotion is exactly what you would expect. Lavender! It’s a very light lavender however, so it’s not over powering. A great night time lotion!
Boardwalk Taffy ~ A nostalgic, summertime treat of spun sugar, pink berries & whipped vanilla. This was the lotion I was most excited for!!!! Thankfully it didn’t disappoint me that much. While it could be more powerful scent wise, you do get berry and vanilla! Finally a win!!!
Sunrise Sail ~ A sun-kissed blend of ocean breeze, blue iris & sparkling citrus. Floral and clean is all I smell. Not horrible, but not a favorite at all. I feel like the lotions this season all smell like laundry lol.... maybe next summer I will get my fruity scents back!
Have you tried any of the new summer scents?
