BBW Haunted House, Newness Talk, Wallflowers, Forever Midnight! Oh My!

Hey everybody!

I received a very awesome phone call this morning around 9:30AM! The manager from my local BBW called to tell me she received ONE Haunted House Luminary and wanted to see if I wanted it!? How awesome is she? Oh, and of course I wanted it! ;)

So off to Bath & Body Works I go! Once I arrived, the manager and I chatted about new things that were out on the floor. I mentioned to her that the Winter/Holiday test candles were already available and she said, "You bought them all didn't you?" Haha, of course I told her. I have to try them ALL out! I'm obsessed like that! ;) She showed me the new fall Wallflowers that were available! Of course, I bought some! She showed me two Luxe Wallflowers. One is a Pumpkin and the other a Owl. If you remember the Luxe Owl from last year, this one is no different except the eyes and belly are now a dark green instead of purple. It came with an Autumn bulb. The Luxe Pumpkin was cute but not as cute as some of the cheaper Wallflowers in my opinion. It came with a Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin bulb, which I don't like, so it was an easy pass for me.

She then pointed to some of the owl holders that we have all seen online already. It's the one online that comes in brown or green. Well, she had a larger one that was silver. I'm assuming it holds a 4 oz candle while the brown and green owls hold mini candles. We talked about the Flannel candle and how much we adored it! She told me the "Flannel" Wallflower bulbs were in the back but I decided to wait on those BUT I will be getting them no doubt ... I HEART FLANNEL! :)

Next, I mentioned Amber Blush and Forever Midnight. She hadn't received any Amber Blush previews even though she went and looked because she thought she may have. She did have the Forever Midnight samples though! She wasn't sure she could sell them so I wasn't able to buy them but she did let me try them out and smell them. All I can say is Forever Midnight is NOT for me. It reminds me too much of Cashmere Glow which I do not care for. They aren't exactly the same but very similar in my opinion. If you were a Cashmere Glow fan, I'm sure you will enjoy it. The men's I definitely thought smelled better than the women's. It's fresh and clean and manly haha! The manager said it reminded her of the C.O. Bigelow Classic. Not entirely sure what that is because I wasn't into BBW back when...

My manager referred to this mini candle holder I picked up as the "Sweater Weather holder!" It's reminiscent of a sweater and it has like a different kind of texture to it. Very, very cute!

I left with my two bags and told her to call me if anything else comes in that is new! ;)

I then went to Wal-Mart where they had out some of their new fall candles. Let me tell you, Pumpkin Vanilla Cream is a dream! I bought it! Why not? It's only $3.97! It smells like Pumpkin Pie mixed with vanilla. ♡ I did notice they had ALOT of candle holders similar to what BBW has out. The round ones, the taller ones, etc. Better Homes & Garden is trying to copy cat, haha!

    1. Hi Mande! I'm not going to do a video on it. I figured pics was the easiest way to show it because it's kinda big and heavy. It's super cute though! I highly would recommend you purchase one. My store got this one on a truck Monday night so I would suggest calling and seeing about one if you want one because they seem to be getting to stores now! :)
