Bath & Body Works | Test Candle Collections | Seaside Summer | Perfect Getaway | April 13th 2015

April 14, 2015
Yesterday, Bath and Body Works stores released their anticipated newest spring fragrances; The Southern Sweet Signature Fragrance Collection.
Beneath beautiful pink magnolia trees greeting us at the door, we were shown four new, spring inspired scents.  And in select, test stores, those who shopped for those  found a wonderful surprise...a release of two new test candle collections.
Titled for now, Seaside Summer and The Perfect Getaway, these are most likely re-dos of our favorite summer-time scents and the previous destination collections.
Photos, shared on Instagram so far, gave us our first looks into the design of the labels of the new, possibly to come out in the next month or two.  The May Signature Fragrance is slated as Tahiti Island Dream and we are to see a tote bag titled Spring Getaway Tote, so my assuming that we will see one if not both of these new candle collections release then...and possibly into June for SAS.
I am always grateful for the looks into the test stores collections they offer since there are only about a dozen left currently that we know of that are testing.  In the next month or so, they too will change and we will be starting all over again in figuring out who will have what.  But luckily, White Barn Candle stores will also have some new collections too so we won't be completely out of the loop. And as more people venture into their stores and find new, social media will once more let us know where to look.
Where I once called around to get all of the information I could about potential new candles coming....and got it, I have since stopped.  The stores are not so forthcoming anymore because of notification from the corporate office about telling customers ANY information and especially bloggers.  (yes, they did specify bloggers...I saw the note).
So as I find out my own information and photos of things I will share...and as others share via Twitter, Instagram and Facebook... I will compile that information to have a complete resource here as well.
My thanks to all who share what they find in their corners of the world making this a wonderful little wax community.
Here are a few of the new candles:
