Spotted at Bath and Body Works (November)

There was a very cute Rose Collection display (as shown) and an equally cute Pumpkin Collection (shown below) and a ton of the newer Candle Collections (shown below). Best of all, there was either a Buy One Get One Free promo or a Buy 2 Get 2 Free promo on almost everything. Of course, my beloved Sea-Tox Collection and Water Collection were excluded from the promos, but you can’t win ’em all, I guess.

Another promo that I don’t recall them ever having before, was Buy 2 Get 3 Free on all the Hand Soaps! Naturally, I had to partake. Unfortunately, I had one of the sales assistant on my tail (kept trying to shake her off) and I totally would’ve walked out, except I was already invested (I was absolutely besotted with the Rose Fine Fragrance Mist and Paris Cafe Candle and needed them in my life). Honestly, at one point, I couldn’t help but start giggling to myself. I was a grown woman and yet here I was skittering from corner to corner, trying to avoid the sales assistant (who was another grown woman). The whole situation was a bit absurd.

Top Row: Fine Fragrance Mists (Rose smelled absolutely lovely!)
Second Row: Ultra Shea Body Cream (issue with packaging ruins product)
Third Row: Super Smooth Body Lotion (already stocked up)
Last Row: Shower Gel (not interested)

Truth be told, I couldn’t give any of the 3 scents featured a proper sniff, because the sales assistant would pop up, seemingly out of nowhere, and start spraying random scents on me. I had a process and she kept interrupting it and I had no way of keeping track of what was what anymore. She even confused herself and would attempt to spritz me with the same scent, multiple times (even though she’d already spritzed some on me earlier, when I was slightly more patient and in the mood to humor her).

I didn’t know how to extract myself from the situation. Normally, I’d say “Ok, thank you!” and the sales assistant would get the hint. Not this one. The worst part is, I remember her being equally difficult the last time I was there lol She’d literally scrape the Scented Candle (in her attempt to pick up the scent by rubbing her finger in there) and then offer her finger for me to sniff it. I was horrified when I saw track marks in the Scented Candles and worried she’d damage even more of them if I stuck around lol Now, she was grabbing what I presume to be unused Fragrance Mists (not the tester) spritzing them and then putting them back as if nothing had happened lol I couldn’t keep watching this anymore so I said “Ok, Thank you!” (which means leave me alone) and moved on. She trailed after me :(

I didn’t get a chance to sniff any of these, because I noticed her heading towards me again, so I just grabbed the Smoothing Body Scrub and rushed off to the next section. Doesn’t the Love Aromatherapy Collection sound lovely (heehee) though? Plus, I figured what with the Rose and Vanilla, it was sure to be a win! Even the inclusion of the Red Rose Sponge (which I bought earlier, here) in the display was quite cute!

Starfish Sponge

These were pretty cute too, but I haven’t touched my Red Rose Sponge (here) since purchasing it, so…

Eucalyptus (It clears the mind & promotes relaxation)
Bergamot (It promotes happiness & evokes vitality)
Ylang Ylang (It encourages confidence & promotes understanding)
Patchouli (It quiets the senses & helps balance emotions)
Peppermint (It promotes focus & encourages positivity)
Lavender (It inspires tranquility & promotes peaceful sleep)

More Aromatherapy at KD 8/000 a pop

Pumpkin Collection (2018)

Buy 1 Get 1 Free

Candles retail for KD 8/000
Hand Soaps retail for KD 3/750

All very cute, but I wasn’t feeling the Scented Candles. However, since there was a Buy 2 Get 3 Free on all Hand Soaps, I grabbed 2 from the Pumpkin Collection (purely based on their names, because once again, the same sales assistant was headed towards me… I could hear the theme from “Jaws” playing in my head, every time I spotted her). Eventually, I latched on to the nearest sales assistant and she finally left me alone. Unfortunately, this sales assistant was even worse than the previous one. He pulled open one of the drawers and handed me a damaged Hand Soap promising me that I’d love it (I was trying to accumulate 5 Hand Soaps and just needed the last 1), but thankfully Cute Man-Bun at the check-out counter, spotted the damaged Hand Soap (it was the last piece) and urged me to pick out another scent. The one that tried to pull a fast one over me was an Egyptian guy… draw your own conclusions.

I’m a huge fan of these Destination Candles and I love that they re-release them every year (so you can get a chance to repurchase your favorites)!

Italy Cannoli & Chocolate Candle (Fresh Made Cannoli, Dusting of Sugar, Sweet Milk Chocolate)

This was pretty nice and had a faint smell of hot cocoa. However, I found another Scented Candle that was much more potent… aptly named Hot Cocoa & Cream lol

London Tea & Lemon Candle (Perfect Afternoon Tea, Sparkling Sugar, Lemon Zest)

Love the London (Tea & Lemon) Candle, but I already have an unlit one purchased earlier (here). I would’ve burned it already, except the cold throw on this baby is fantastic! I would’ve purchased another one regardless, but they re-release it every year, so it’s not like I’m missing out.

White Barn Fall Candle Collection (2018)

Buy 1 Get 1 Free

These retail for KD 8/000 per pop. I wasn’t planning on getting any… but then I sniffed Paris Cafe on a whim. It was pretty much over for me after that. I was powerless against Paris Cafe‘s charm! Plus, they had a Buy 1 Get 1 Free on them, so I got to pick out another Scented Candle for free.

White Barn Paris Cafe Candle (Espresso Beans, White Tuberose, Bergamot Zest)

There was nothing sweet nor light about the scent. All I smelled was coffee… on steroids! It. Was. Glorious.

Men’s Collection

Buy 2 Get 2 Free

Teakwood (Mahogany, Black Teakwood & Lavender)
Ocean (Blue Cypress, Vetiver & Coastal Air)
Noir (Black Cardamom, Smoky Vanilla & a hint of Musk)

Ladies, if you want your men to smell amazing, get them something from the Men’s Collection. They’ve got everything from Perfume (or Cologne as the Americans call it) to Body Spray to Shower Gels to Exfoliating Cleansers to Body Lotions! Even the no-frills packaging would get the thumbs up from the manliest of men!
