Bath & Body Works | Fall Candle Preview

There are new Fall Candles hitting Bath and Body Works backrooms this week and here is a first look at what is being seen.

When these will come out seems to vary from store to store. 

I would think we will see them when the floor set happens during the first week of July.  But I  am hearing some stores are putting them out because their Semi-Annual Sale stock is very low, which is why the walls were set with new July merchandise this week.  Either way, the images are making their way across social media, so it's time to make a list! 

Oh, and I don't think these are considered "Test Candles " because they are coming to non-test stores now.​
