Without actually meaning to, it seems I've made another trip to Bath and Bodyworks around the same time as I did last year, so hey maybe this becomes a yearly thing? Who knows. Anyway, I didn't pick up toooo much, but I wanted to share what I bought just in case you had your eye on a few of the season's newest offerings.
First off, having just received a paycheck and feeling quite a bit heavier in the wallet than usual, I decided to treat myself to a nice big three-wick candle (you know how it is). This was actually the first of their large candles that I'd actually bought for myself, and after smelling probably every single one three times, I finally decided on their Pumpkin Caramel Latte. At first it seemed like a pretty decent candle, and the scent throw is pretty amazing, lit or not, but after burning it for the first time, I soon realized that sweet candles aren't really my thing. In fact, the more I sniff it, the more it reminds me of pancake syrup (just no). If I could do it over again, my first choice would be their Sandalwood Citrus candle. Quite a manly scent, but it's refreshing and definitely a bit more my speed.
They also had a 5 for $5 deal going on their pocket antibacterial hand gels, and since I will be living in a city quite soon, I figured I'd better throw a few in my cart. Of the five I purchased, I'd say Aqua Blossom and Island Margarita are my two favorites. The best way I can describe Aqua Blossom is to say that it smells like fresh, clean water (if you haven't yet realized, I'm pretty crap at describing scents). Island Margarita is limey, and smells just like its namesake. The rest were bought in large part due to their names and labels. Jack O' Pumpkin ends up making your hands smell like baked goods (blech), Pumpkin Caramel Latte, again, smells like pancake syrup, and Dancing Waters is along the same lines as Aqua Blossom in the clean scent department, but I find it almost too strong and is altogether pretty skippable.
Not sure why my Bath and Bodyworks hauls always end up being so meh? It's probably because I'm the kind of person who walks around the store browsing for ages, and then starts to feel awkward and pressured so I wind up picking up the thing closest to me, buying it, and fleeing the store. Does that happen to anyone else, or is that just me? Well anyway, anything I bought look interesting to you? Do you plan on taking advantage of any of the current BBW sales? Tell me your favorite scents, I'd love to know what to check out on my next visit (whenever that may be).
