I will be adding more, but here is a start.

Buyer is responsible for shipping and Paypal fee. Most are lighter in weight so these can be shipped first class mail parcel post....or priority if wanted. International buyers are welcome on these.

Bath & Body Works | In the Next few Months

May 19, 2015
 
I wanted to do a quick post about what we will be seeing in the next few months as we begin to enjoy our spring/summer with Bath and Body Works heading into fall/holiday.
 

 
Currently we are enjoying

Tahiti Island Dream

and all that floor set has to offer.
And this will continue from May 11th, until June 7th.
 
Then Bath and Body Works
Semi Annual Sale

Begins June 8th and will continue until July 5th.
 
 
We know there will be some returning signature favorites from the retired collection:
 
Country Apple
Cucumber Melon
Juniper Breeze
Pearberry
Plumeria
White Tea and Ginger
 
--------------------- 
Now for returning Aromatherapy Scents: still not revealed
Returning Candles: still not revealed
Signature Fragrances leaving:  speculation. 
Usually a fall scent leaves for the summer so it could be any number of scents going. I don't want to guess and get anyone upset until I actually know for sure.
 As for a mans Signature departure...it could be Noir and Midnight....again I don't want to guess.
 -----------------------
 
During this time we will see some Candle Collections that have been recently testing arrive:
 
Seaside Summer Collection
Beach Cabana-
 
Beach Grass-
like a stroll on the dunes at sunrise-dewy greens, palmetto grass, and sweet white freesia.
 
Coral Seashell-
a juicy blend of summer peach nectar, plum and orange that's as exquisite as a rare beach treasure.
 
Coastal Sun-
 
Lighthouse-
a beacon of beautiful fragrance for your home in a blend of sea glass, sea foam and  hint of sparkling sand.

 

Nantucket Sail-
sail way with a blend of ocean washed driftwood, sea air and refreshing grapefruit.
 
Suntan-
hello sunshine! it's time to hit the sands with this blend of sundrenched flowers, neroli blossoms and driftwood
 

Summer Boardwalk-
like memories of the best summer spent at the beach - caramel-glazed popcorn, warm taffy-apples an salted sweet cream
 
Summer Bonfires-
the perfect summer night at the beach comes to life with notes of warm woods, orange blossoms and green leaves

Please Note: I saw that Coastal Sun was not on the stores list so it May not come out.
 
Perfect Getaway Collection
 
Amsterdam- tulips and windmills -

Bangkok- golden temples and spice -

 ----------------------
Please note: I did not see Barcelona on the store list so it May not be out.

Last year in July the summer drink line of candles came out along with these signatures:
•Cool Coconut Surf (blue)
•Hello Sun Shine (yellow)
•Peace Love and Daisies (green)
•Sweet Summer Kiss (pink)
•Sunset by the Pool (orange)

So for the next floor set I would think that would be:
July 6th until August 2nd.

I think we may be seeing these Summer Drink Candles along with a new Signature Fragrance or Fragrances....still to be named. (my guesses below)

Summer Drink Collection Candles
(currently testing April 27, 2015)

Banana Kiwi Colada
 Lime Granita Margarita
Limoncello Poptail
Mango Coconut Cooler
Pink Apple Punch
Sangria Berry Freeze
Spiked Cherry Limesicle
Twisted Caramel Gelato
Watermelon Lemonade


 Banana Kiwi Colada

My thanks to ebay seller ( makingsunshinehappen) for posting these auctions so we can grab them early. Photo credit: makingsunshinehappen

And my thanks to papawandmamawsplace for sharing auctions showing the cute lids. Photo credit to the lid pictures to: papawandmamawsplace
Here is their link
 

 

 
Please Note: I did not see Banana Kiwi Colada or Lime Grantia Margartia on the store list so they May not come. That would be very disappointing....
 
 
Then the next floor set should be
August 3rd until September 6th.

Last year at this time we saw the launch of the Artisan Fragrances and Candles.

I think this year we will see the
Wine Country Vineyards Collection
Floor Set launch with the candles that we are currently seeing being tested. This makes sense to me as it takes about a month or two before we see them nationwide.

I heard that there will be Signature Fragrance(s), Hand Soaps, Pocketbacs, Candles and more.
Cork and Vine Candle Collection
Candle Names are:

Black Cherry Merlot
Citron Cedarwood
Harvest Gathering
Napa Valley Sunset
Sonoma Spiced Citrus
Sparkling Pear Riesling
Sundrenched Vineyard
Wine Cellar







  Photos are the property of fabulousthriftymamma ebay seller
 
 
So let me recap:

May 11th, until June 7th- Tahiti Island Dream

June 8th  until July 5th- Semi Annual Sale

July 6th until August 2nd- Summer Drink Candles and Signature Fragrance(s)

August 3rd until September 6th- Wine Country

September 7th until October 4th- {Fall Signatures; Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin,

October 5th-
approx. 5 more floor sets until Jan 1, 2016 (this time of year the sets are broken down into holiday 1-4 possibly)

We could expect to see 4-5 Fall Signature Scents
1 Signature Scent in September late
4-5 Holiday Signature Scents
Holiday Special Signature Scent



~Food For Thought~

I am always sharing the names I find of trademarks BBW had posted and we never know if these names will be signature body care, candles, hand soaps...or really anything....
And more often than not, the names that are shared will end up a signature item and candle names.  Not everything I see is used, but it is fun to see what got trademarked as we try to figure out what it could become and when.

There are some more recent names that I shared before on my blogs but I wanted to list them here so we can see what...if anything....becomes of it.

Sun Crisp Apple Harvest
Plum Cider Warmth
Perfect Autumn Day
{could these be the names of new fall signatures???}


Sonoma Weekend Escape
Napa Valley Sunset
Vineyard Champagne Kiss
{would be three great signature names}

Vineyard Kiss
Sonoma Sunset
Napa Escape
{could these be handsoap/antibac names}


Sassy Strawberry Mint
Beach Breeze
Sun kissed Days
Iced Coconut Colada
Pink Lemonade Fizz
Guava Pineapple Splash
Cool Melon Kiwi
{could be cute signature names for the drink poptails candle time??}


Seaside Mimosa ( I think its a candle on the list)


Frosted Wonderland
Frosted Winter Woods
Frosted White Woods
White Amber Woods
Winterberry Wonder
Snow Kissed Sugar
Sugar Plum Dream
Snowflake Wishes
Champagne Sparkle
{candles, signatures, soap??}

As I get more information, I will be sure to share...I just wanted to put a lot of what I have heard all in one place to get an idea if and when all of this happens.  Thanks for stopping by...Hugs, Tess
