This morning, Bath and Body Works has released a sneak peek of fall-themed items online and I will say I am loving the look of the chalkboard candle collection.

Earlier this week I shared a few photos of some like-themed body care products found that could be included as part of our Fall Traditions Collection. Odd to be talking about fall things in June and July, I know, but I feel this is a much-needed reprieve of all of the other things that have been consuming our every day.  And with such cute packaging, I don't mind the distraction.

I wanted to get these photos posted today along with the scent notes for each so you can get an idea of what these scents may be.  Re-done fragrances or something new. Either way, I am loving the packaging designs on the few forms I have found, and I will be sharing some first thoughts on each when I get them in a few days.

As for some of our old friends, favorite scents like Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin and Sweater Weather...these are NOT the only scents we will be seeing.  The Aromatherapy scents shown will probably have a few others in that collection too. 

Where Lavender in Bloom will fit in?  No idea, yet.  Oh and here is a first look at the New Sunset Glow Body Care.

Bath and Body Works New Body Care items found that may be coming soon for Fall!  I will be adding the scent notes and other information soon but here is a First Look at all of this beautiful packaging.

I wondered if our Fall Body Care Collection would have chalkboard style packaging to match those candles and hand soaps we saw come out the other day and these do.  We will see other scents I am sure so if your favorite fall Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin or other scents aren't here, I wouldn't worry about it.  And with the candles previewing already, I don't think the wait for all of these fall goodies is too far off.

Fall Traditions Body Care:

  • Strawberry Poundcake
  • Sparkling Plum Prosecco
  • Sugared Cherry Crisp
  • Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte

Returning Favorite:

  • Bonfire Bash

New Scent: ( that we saw had a matching wallflower bulb )

  • Sunset Glow

Aromatherapy:

  • Zen Garden - Pink Pepperberry and Ylang Ylang

New Scent:

  • Lavender in Bloom

More and More Bath and Body Works stores are beginning to set the Fall Preview Candles and we are getting more First Looks of what they have in store for us.  I am not sure how it is going to be for those of us whose stores have yet to re-open if we will see the Semi-Annual Sale things set up and have to wait weeks before anything new comes out, but I am hopeful that when we get our turn those candles will be ready for us too. 

My thanks to @kimlovescandles for her kindness in sharing her finds today on Instagram.

When Bath and Body Works released their Bold Blooms Body Care Collection for Mother's Day we saw it available in only four fragrances.

Black Cherry Merlot, Champagne Toast, Whipped Vanilla Cream, and Fresh Cut Lilacs.  Which were the four fragrances that I saw listed on the store's paperwork.  I would think, and this is just my opinion, that if you choose a collection name such as Bold Blooms, you would pick scents that are...well, Blooms. 

Dedicated buyers of the brand know about repurposing scents we have seen in many collections with different marketing to suit the current collection coming.  It is not surprising to us anymore. 

With a vast amount of florals available to them to choose from such as Rose, Gardenia, Jasmine, Lavender, and Peony the collection could have been more authentic to the collection name and still be great for Mother's Day gift-giving.  But the fan favorites Black Cherry Merlot and Champagne Toast usually get tucked in somewhere with a new label and they were added.

The store sudden closures made the only resource to purchase the collection online...which meant, no opportunity to try before you buy.  I ordered the scents and tried them weeks and weeks after they launched with the slower shipping times.

The Black Cherry Merlot and Champagne Toast were the same, lovely scents they are.  The Whipped Vanilla Chiffon may smell okay when sprayed on a piece of paper but on me...Yuck.  I don't even know what to call it on me except Yuck.  It doesn't agree with my chemistry at all and while it has somewhat of a familiar smell to it, to me...I can't figure out why it is included.

Fresh Cut Lilacs...is Beautiful...and spot on Lilac scent...in the bottle...and again not on me.  Ugh.  Which makes me sad because it is a lovely fragrance.

 While checking out secondary sales sites I found a fragrance called Blooming Garden and I immediately recognized the packaging as Bold Blooms.  I ordered it to see what fragrance it may have been thinking that it must have been a tested scent that failed to launch with the others.  The Body Lotion and Body Cream were the only two forms available and I received them in two days.

The scent notes on Blooming Garden were: fresh-picked poppy, spring waters, and sky blue amber.  It's not a bad scent,...and took some getting accustomed to...but it reminds me of something we have had before.  It's not a fragrance I would try on in a store and then buy as aquatic scents aren't my thing but now it is part of my collection as I try to figure out what it really is.

Our stores have not yet opened so there has been no Semi-Annual Sale shopping here for me, but I am following many on social media who are posting their finds.  I have been sent a few photos recently and along with the online add of the Blooming Garden Body Cream, some stores started to add that item to their shelves for the sale ( with some having it at regular pricing ).  So I thought yes, great...it was a tested scent and perhaps other forms of it will show up too.

Back on June 9th, a friend @rockgirlmaxim84 sent me a photo of her store's shelf with the Bold Blooms Collection on it.  I, I can't even explain how I missed seeing the share...or the photo...or what was on the photo.  It wasn't even the day I went to the eye doctor and was dilated for hours...haha, so I have no excuse how I missed sharing it...but I did.

And the reason I mention that is because I was asked yesterday did I know anything about the scent Hello Beautiful being in the Bold Blooms Collection packaging.  Hmmm, no. I don't think so.

So my friend @taylorgrewe_ sent me a photo of her SAS purchase and sure enough...there is a Fine Fragrance Mist in the Hello Beautiful scent with Bold Blooms packaging. 

Interestingly enough, she was kind enough to show me it next to the Black Cherry Merlot packaging...and they were the same.  Which also happens a lot.  Maybe they try to find the best scent for the packaging they are going to use.

I shared Taylor's photo and Jenn mentions that she shared a pic with me earlier in the month and that scent was on it...in a Body Cream!!! Oh, no...so I look at the message sent and photo and sure enough...both body creams were there.

Then friend @tiffanypena16 comments she has the Hello Beautiful in the Bold Blooms packaging in a Shower Gel!!! and she sent her photo to be shared.  I really love this community!!!

This leads me to think that somewhere, at sometime before the stores closed and the Mother's Day Collection came out, this collection had some other scents and forms made to possibly go with it.

And that is the type of thing that makes me enjoy archiving this brand as much as I do.  We see new collections of products come out every month and in a few months from now, or years when someone finds one of these random scents for sale somewhere and inquires where it came from...it will be written down to answer that question.

As always, huge thanks to all who help me see those things that I may never get in my area to know about.  Your help is appreciated.

New Items To Watch Out For In Stores And Online

Bath and Body Works has begun putting out a few fall Pumpkin Sneak Peeks and thanks to friends who found these in their stores, I am able to share them with you.

I recognize it is summer and it has been some kind of year so far and we are still finding our footing on reopening up businesses and getting out to enjoy all of those things summer can offer up while still being safe.  So for those who love all things warm weather...I am with you.  But, fall is my most favorite time of year...and after all that we have been going through, I look forward to seeing these new things fall-like and enjoy knowing they are coming.  Finding them and buying them won't make me miss out on summer scents.  It just makes me happy to know what lies ahead.

Here are some of the scents I see in this photo shared with me from an Instagram Friend @azmoonpie

June Pumpkin Candle Collection

Banana Walnut Muffin

Blueberry Maple Pancakes

Caramel Pumpkin Swirl

Peanut Butter Brittle

Pumpkin Apple

Pumpkin Donut Shop

Pumpkin Pecan Waffles

Vanilla Pumpkin Marshmallow

On a quick trip to the Dollar Tree today I saw the seasonal wall was now starting to get some fall-themed products added.  Here are a few photos from the small section I saw.

 

Bath and Body Works finally added a Cocktails Collection Body Lotion online today in the Rose Champagne fragrance. No other new fragrances or forms were added so I guess we are going to be waiting a bit longer to gather all of the pieces to this collection. Fortunately, I have the lotion in this scent, except mine has the multi-lingual packaging...it may have come from Canada.
