BBW Summer Boardwalk candles

Because of the 50% of summer candles at BBW, I’ve started my Christmas shopping! I always tried to grab gifts from BBW and YC around this time  when they are on sale…its makes the Christmas season easier! These 3 candles will be Christmas gifts for someone lucky in my family!

I grabbed this medium jar of Summer Boardwalk because it is a spectacular scent: Salty Caramel and apple. Very sweet and delicious!

I also got Root Beer Float because it is rare (only available in medium) and smells great! I think it smells just like A&W rootbeer with vanilla ice cream!

The last one I grabbed was Sun Tan…it smells just like Sand and Sun from YC!!!! I think this one my be my favorite (cold)!!!

  1. I am going to head to B&BW tomorrow and see if they have any of the 4oz. jars of the summer scents left; I got a 20% off coupon in the mail, and I don’t have much money, but there are a few I’d like to get my hands on before they go away!

    I emailed B&BW and they said Flower Shop, the greatest candle I’ve ever purchased, probably won’t come back again…NOOOOOOO!! I stockpiled and actually found one for relatively cheap on eBay. What’s a gal to do when her favorite scent is gone forever?! 😉

    Hope all is well with you both! 🙂

    • I hope you find some Flower Shop. I saw a few of the 4oz jars when I was there last (a week or so ago)! I hate when one of my favorite scents gets discontinued! Goodluck!!!

      Rumor has it that White Barn will be taking over for Slatkin and Co…so a lot of my favorite scents may be disappearing!

      Goodluck…50% with a 20% coupon is a fantastic deal!!!

  2. I went into B&BW today and smelled a lot of the new Fall scents from White Barn…tjhey were nice, but some of them were really lacking in power! Maybe they will be better burned instead of cold?

    Do you frequent any candle forums, message boards, or websites for scents/candles? I follow a few people on Twitter, plus you, but I’m just now getting around to the online aspect of candles and scents.

    I did pick up a few candles on sale, two minis and two 4oz. ones! You’re right about the French Baguette, it smells great! I’m going to see if my husband thinks I was baking bread all day, LOL! I have the Black Pepper Bergamot mini going now, it smells divine! And nothing beats 50% off plus a 20% coupon!! 🙂

    • I’m glad you like French Baguette too! I couldn’t stop smelling it! I have Summer Boardwalk going now…but I think French Baguette is next! I love Mahogany Teakwood but haven’t tried Black Pepper Bergamot. I loved it cold though!

      I read the facebook pages a lot and follow some blogs (yours included!). It seems like people agree with you…White Barn candles have much less oils and lighter throws. I haven’t tried any yet, but I hope Slatkin sticks around!

      Sounds like you got some great deals!!!! 🙂
