My BBW Buy 2 Get 1 Free Sale Haul & Aspen Caramel Woods!

Hey everybody!

So I've returned home from my trip to Bath & Body Works! I bought a few things for the Buy 2 Get 1 Free Sale AND with another coupon, I bought a couple Sexy Dahlia Rush TMC's.  Even with all that, my favorite thing about today was getting my hands on some ASPEN CARAMEL WOODS! AHHH!

My store had mainly shower gels in all the other Fall Tradition scents so with that, I only purchased Aspen Caramel Woods today since I do have a package on the way from BBW with all the other Fall Traditions. Let me clarify, these are NOT out on the floor yet. I asked for them. The manager was iffy on selling them to me but I informed her they were online already and I think she felt better. I told her I didn't want to get anyone in trouble or anything and she was kind enough to go ahead and sell them to me. Yay!

My take on ACW is simply this: a warmer, toned down version of Twilight Woods. I smelled it, an SA smelled it, and the manager smelled it and we all came to this same conclusion. With that being said, it's like Twilight Woods, not the exact same. It also reminds me a bit of Dreamy Vanilla Woods from last year but with way less of the "woodsy" note going on. Which I love because I didn't care all that much for Dreamy Vanilla Woods. Think of a toned down version of Twilight Woods then add sweet, gooey caramel. Top that off with a hint of vanilla bourbon (Yes, I pick up the bourbon and vanilla). This equals Aspen Caramel Woods. It smells amazing! Try it out for yourself! ;) HOARD!!!

I smelled Vermont Honey Apple as well. Honestly, hardly no difference from last years Honey Autumn Apple. If you have plenty of last years left, then this one would be an easy pass for you in my opinion.

I bought a few Wallflowers too! If you didn't know, these are/will no longer be included in the 4 for $20 or 6 for $24 deal so when sales like this Buy 2 Get 1 Free happen ... that is the time to purchase these! I bought 2 Pumpkin ones and 1 Owl on a branch. Both are super cute and must-haves for Fall home decor!

I bought 3 of the new spider hand soap holders for Halloween! They are A D O R A B L E ! ! !

I picked up 2 of the new bigger room sprays! I bought Leaves and Mahogany Teakwood! I thought why not? These are bigger and a better deal than the smaller ones, right? Well, I didn't realize these aren't concentrated. The manager told me they aren't highly concentrated like the smaller ones. I still am going to try them out though. I'm guessing they are more like the typical Glade or Febreeze room sprays. If this is the case, I don't know if the price tag is worth it considering you can grab a Glade or Febreeze room spray for $3.00. However, I love BBW's highly concentrated room sprays so much! They work wonders! :)

Enough rambling, here are my pics from today's haul! Enjoy! :-) Oh, and I took pics of a few things I thought were cute that I didn't purchase.
