La Dolce Vita Italian Piazza Collection

This past year, Bath and Body Works has been testing out fragrance collections from locations around the world. They started with their Paris Amour collection that included some great body fragrances like Sweet on Paris and Paris in Bloom (not my favorite!). Then they added a few candles like French Baguette, Cafe au Lait, and Sweet Macaron. It was very succesful!

Then they released a “World Travel” collection during the holidays that practically flew off the shelves.

So what is next? The Answer: Italy!

Italian Passport

There are 5 new candle scents based on the sites and smells of Italty…I love them all!

1: Gelato was my favorite and I somehow found the very last large tumbler and mini candle in the store!


This one smells YUMMY! It’s description is “A creamy blend of raspberry and Strawberry with an effervescent spun sugar finish.” It is actually similar to Yankee Candle’s new Summer Scoop…but still different enough for me to want both Gelato and Summer Scoop in my collection!

2:Β  Limoncello is also excellent! I’m so excited to have a fun new summery lemon scent!


The description on this one is “Sorrento Lemons, cane sugar, and a hint of lemon zest.” It is a perfect sugary lemon scent, without being too sweet or too tart. I love that it smells like a Lemon Drop martini!

3: Sicilian Orange

Sicilian Orange BBW

Yup, there is a Yankee Candle World Journey that has this same name. This scent is different though! To me, BBW’s version is more like creamy orange sorbet, while YC’s is more citrus like orange juice! The scent description is “citrusy blend of oranges, Sicilian bergamot, sun-kissed lillis, and mandarin blossoms.” definitely worth a sniff!

4: Espresso Bar. I didn’t get one of this (hey! I’m on a budget…and these were Easter gifts! Not even for me!) This one was a nice strong coffee scent that I would love to get for when I have to study for my defense (Hopefully in January!)

5: Tuscan Herbs: Wow was this one great! It was like a fresh herb garden of basil, parsley, rosemary….yum! Just add some EVOO and mozzarella and NOW WE”RE TALKING!

Definitely check out this collections! All 5 were great!

They also have $1 creams for the preview of the Bella Italy Collection. I’m loving the Capri Seaside Citrus!

  1. Oh Italy, my favorite county!!! ❀ Limoncello and Tuscan Herbs sound great!

    Is Limoncello somehow comparable to Country Lemonade or is it totally different?

    That just makes wanna go on vacation right now! πŸ˜€

    • Speaking of Summer Scoop: I ordered votives of Campfire Treat (Fireside Treats in Europe), Honey Blossom and Summer Scoop a couple of days ago and I’m sooo excited to smell them!!! Hopefully they’ll be mine by the end of this week!

      I also couldn’t resist the Triple Votive Holder — so I’m going to try some Mixology soon! πŸ˜‰

      • Mixology! Awesome! I wish I was better at combining scents! πŸ™‚ Hope you try some fun ones…and share them with me!

        Summer scoop was awesome! I just tried a tart…’s really nice! Strawberry Icecream! Yum! πŸ˜‰ I also got Campfire Treats…very excited to try it! πŸ™‚

    • You know, it is similar to Country Lemonade! It’s got that lemon-sugary feel…but there is another note in there I can’t explain that makes it a bit different.
      But if you liked Country Lemonade….Limoncello will be a winner!

  2. Well, I’ve been lurking around the Triple Votive Holder for quite some time and then I thought why not give it a shot!

    I have never tried to combine scents, not even with my tarts so I’m a total mixology newbie. πŸ˜‰ I plan on trying to copy Cherry Lemonade which is one of my absolute favorites but an absolute rarity on this side of the ocean. I ordered one Country Lemonade and two Black Cherry votives. Actually I wanted it the other way around but only one Countrly Lemonade votive was available. 😦 Hopefully the two cherries won’t be overpowering the lemonade part.

    My second “project” πŸ˜‰ will be two Lavender Vanilla votives and one Soft Blanket — inspired by the Sweet Dreams swirl candle. Lavender Vanilla is another all time favorite of mine. I’ll keep you posted on how everything works out! πŸ™‚

    BBW’s Italian collection really sounds great but unfortunately there’s no Bath and Body Works in Germany. Or should I say luckily? πŸ˜‰ Anyways, I still love reading about their candles!
