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!
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: 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
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!
