US Bath and Body Works Hand Soaps and Wallflowers

As I said, the U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Store had some pretty good deals all throughout December! They were releasing new products and new deals pretty much on the daily!

The deals at the time of this order:
Hand Soaps were reduced from $6.50 to $3
Wallflower Fragrances Duos (2pc) were 3 for $27 (normally $12.50 each)
Wallflower Fragrances (singles) were 5 for $23 (normally $7.50 each)
– Use code SANTA for 20% Off Entire Order

I decided to pick up a few Wallflower Fragrances and Hand Soaps.

Wallflower Fragrances make my home smell ah-mazing and they were on sale! Win, win.

Hand Soaps tend to smell great too and they were on sale as well ergo good time to stock up!

My 1st U.S. B&BW Online Order – Nov 30 (haulage here)
My 2nd U.S. B&BW Online Order – December 5 (haulage here)
My 3rd U.S. B&BW Online Order – December 6 (as shown)

Each of them came with a 20% Off Coupon Code for a future order too.

I’d like to say there were no casualties and that everything arrived safely, but for some reason, the packaging on all the Wallflower Fragrance Duos arrived in tatters (had to piece them together like a puzzle before taking photos for my blog lol) and one of the Gentle Foaming Hand Soaps (Cozy Vanilla Cream) had a partially destroyed pump. All still usable though.

Hand Soaps

Land of Sweets – Gentle Foaming Hand Soap Pack (5pc)
Nordic Noel – Deep Cleansing Hand Soap Pack (5pc)
– x2 Deep Cleansing Hand Soaps
– x3 Creamy Luxe Hand Soaps
– x4 Gentle Foaming Hand Soaps

Basically, I snagged x9 Gentle Foaming Hand Soaps and x7 Deep Cleansing Hand Soaps and x3 Creamy Luxe Hand Soaps which makes x19 Hand Soaps in total.

It might seem a bit excessive, but I use the Hand Soaps from B&BW almost exclusively, year-round. Plus, I coexist with a lot of family members and staff (all of whom use this stuff too) in a pretty big home (lotsa’ sinks everywhere lol), not to mention the Hand Soaps that I give away as well. Also, these babies look cute and generally, tend to smell great!

The SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-19 or Coronovirus wasn’t as widespread at the time of this order. Now that we’ve had 3 confirmed cases, 8 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed cases, 43 confirmed cases in Kuwait, these Hand Soaps will come in extra handy.

Hand Soap Packs

Land of Sweets – Gentle Foaming Hand Soap Pack (5pc)
Nordic Noel – Deep Cleansing Hand Soap Pack (5pc)

Apparently, Bath & Body Works sold stuff in Packs! Personally, I’ve only ever seen those Gift Sets (that usually contain a selection of products in the same scent, as opposed to the same product in several scents).

I couldn’t decide between the adorable Land of Sweets or the pretty and more practical Nordic Noel, so I went ahead and got both 5pc Hand Soap Packs!

They retailed for $15 each and were not included in the sale.

Together they cost $30 which was around KD 10 meaning KD 1 per Hand Soap.

However, with the 20% Off, I think I might’ve gotten them for KD 0/800 per Hand Soap.

Good deal, no? Especially considering these were new-new (in-season, sealed, untouched and above all, not expired).

Land of Sweets Gentle Foaming Hand Soap Pack (5pc)

Stock your sink with the sweetest scents of the season in 5 of our Gentle Foaming Hand Soaps with Essential Oils.

They combine nourishing Vitamin E with softening Shea Extract & Aloe to deliver a rich lather, gently washing away dirt & germs.

Includes Crushed Candy Cane and Merry Cookie and Merry Berry Kiss and Lemon Buttercream and Cinnamon Caramel Swirl

I’d already ordered Lemon Buttercream and Merry Cookie in my 1st U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Order (here), but that order hadn’t arrived yet, and frankly these were just too cute to pass up!

The packaging on these cuties was kinda’ meant to match the packaging on the 3-Wick Candles from the same collection (haulage here), which I also loved!

Lemon Buttercream Gentle Foaming Hand Soap

Christmas smells like a sweet & tangy dollop of sugared lemon, whipped vanilla & graham cracker crumbles

I purchased Lemon Buttercream in my 1st U.S. B&BW Online Order (here), but that order hadn’t arrived at the time I placed this order.

Once it arrived, I thought the packaging on Lemon Buttercream was even cuter in real life! I didn’t love the scent, which was very candy-like and not in a good way, but I used this stuff anyway, hoping it would grow on me with time. That didn’t happen.

If anything, I found the lemon musk quite irritating the more I used it and was very happy when I finally finished it all up, just recently. I don’t have it in me to finish up another one (the struggle lol) so I’m either gonna’ pop this thing in the kitchen or guest bathroom.

Merry Cookie Gentle Foaming Hand Soap

Christmas smells like a bake sale mix of buttery shortbread, vanilla bourbon icing & spun sugar

I purchased Merry Cookie in my 1st U.S. B&BW Online Order (here), but that order hadn’t arrived at the time I placed this order.

The packaging was pretty adorable, but the scent was surprisingly good too! It was a nice warm vanilla scent, that veered slightly boozy at times, which I thoroughly enjoyed! I’m still working my way through the first one, but I’m happy to have a backup!

Merry Berry Kiss Gentle Foaming Hand Soap

Christmas smells like a candied mix of winter berries, snowy vanilla & crystallized ginger

After finally finishing up Lemon Buttercream, I figured I’d give Merry Berry Kiss a try.

The packaging was just as cute as the rest of the Gentle Foaming Hand Soaps in the Land of Sweets Collection! The scent? Not so much.

Sometimes it smelled like a pleasant albeit artificial candied Blueberry and sometimes it smelled like some sort of cleaning product (I wanna’ say there’s some Lavender involved), like Dettol or something similar.

I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it either. It’s not nearly as irritating as Lemon Buttercream, honestly. I’m going to finish up the one I got, but I definitely wouldn’t repurchase.

Crushed Candy Cane Gentle Foaming Hand Soap

Christmas smells like a cool, sweet blend of crunchy peppermint, white sugar crystals & frosted mint leaf

Without fail, whenever I even glimpse the word Candy Cane, I start hearing a deep voice with a southern drawl coming through a CB Radio saying “Candy Cane. Caaaandy Cane” all thanks to the slasher flick Joy Ride. Cracks. Me. Up.

The packaging looked less cute to me, than the others from the same collection. It was too cartoon-y for my taste.

Here’s hoping the scent isn’t as lethal as the Twisted Peppermint Gentle Foaming Hand Soap (haulage here) and more pleasant, like Twisted Peppermint Shower Gel (haulage here) that I fell in love with (especially during the Summer) all those years ago!

Cinnamon Caramel Swirl Gentle Foaming Hand Soap

Christmas smells like a sweet, creamy treat of golden caramel, warm vanilla & brown sugar

The packaging on Cinnamon Caramel Swirl was too cute! That being said, typically, I tend to avoid overly cinnamon-y scents, because I kinda’ find some of them to be… irritating.

Here’s hoping Cinnamon Caramel Swirls smells like Cinnamon Spiced Vanilla Deep Cleansing Hand Soap (haulage here) at the start (when it was all pleasant) and not towards the end (when it became… vile) as I’d mentioned in my B&BW Empties Post (here).

Land of Sweets Gentle Foaming Hand Soap Pack (5pc)

I mean, the collection was straight up named Land of Sweets, so to expect anything other than blatantly sugary sweet scents, would be a mistake. If that’s your thing, then have at it. The packaging was pretty freakin’ adorable too!

Expect to see these make their debut in Kuwait towards the end of 2020 lol

Nordic Noel Deep Cleansing Hand Soap Pack (5pc)

Give every sink a cool-weather refresh with 5 of our Deep Cleansing Hand Soaps with Essential Oils.

This bubbly hand soap with Vitamin E, Shea Extract & Aloe effectively cleanses using tiny exfoliating pearls to gently buff away dull skin, leaving hands feeling soft & clean.

Includes Frosted Cranberry and Toasted Vanilla Chai and Fresh Sparkling Snow and Winter Citrus Wreath and Coconut Mint Drop

Deep Cleansing Hand Soaps from Bath & Body Works are my most favorite form of Liquid Hand Soaps, from any brand, ever! For that reason alone, I had to snag this Set, er Pack!

That said, the scents seemed pretty interesting and the packaging on this Nordic Noel Collection seemed more upscale (foncy, foncy) and actually, quite pretty!

Coconut Mint Drop Deep Cleansing Hand Soap

An arctic-meets-tropics mix of white coconut, iced peppermint & winter musk

I’ve actually purchased Coconut Mint Drop as a Shower Gel about a year ago and liked it (haulage here)!

Coconut Mint Drop was basically Twisted Peppermint, minus the sweetness. It was wonderfully minty, with an odd yet not unpleasant salty note (White Coconut?), which all in all, I quite enjoyed! Most of all, I loved that Sandalwood note (Winter Musk?) that would remain on my skin afterwards! I found it intoxicating!

I’m happy to have Coconut Mint Drop in the form of a Deep Cleansing Hand Soap and a beautifully packaged one, at that (loving the dark green liquid)! I’m actually pretty excited about Coconut Mint Drop and can’t wait to use this baby!

Fresh Sparkling Snow Deep Cleansing Hand Soap

A cool, fruity blend of icy melon, holiday pear & falling snow

I actually picked up Fresh Sparkling Snow as a Shower Gel from the All That Glitters Collection in my 2nd U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Order (haulage here), but that order hadn’t arrived at the time I placed this order.

As a Shower Gel, the scent did nothing for me. Frankly, I found it a bit boring. I see it working much better as a Deep Cleansing Hand Soap though. Prettier packaging too! How gorgeous is the grey-blue liquid, right? I’m thinkin’ I might save this baby for when the weather gets a bit warmer.

Frosted Cranberry Deep Cleansing Hand Soap

A fresh-picked basket of frosted cranberry, red delicious apple & blonde wood

Yuck! I wasn’t familiar with Frosted Cranberry at the time of this order. However, I ordered it from our local Bath & Body Works Online Store in the form of a 3-Wick Candle and hated it (haulage here)! Our household staff, on the other hand, loved it!

As such, they got the Frosted Cranberry in the form of a Single Wick Candle from my 2nd U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Order (here) in addition to this Frosted Cranberry Deep Cleansing Hand Soap from my 3rd Bath & Body Works Online Order.

In fact, right after taking pics for this post, I handed it to our cook and he started using it right away, declaring “very nice smell”. Personally, I grew from disliking the scent to flat out hating it. Not even the beautiful reddish liquid could sway me.

Frosted Cranberry Deep Cleansing Hand Soap currently resides by the kitchen sink and sadly, I’m forced into using it, whenever I’m pattering around in the kitchen whipping up a quick snack. It’s actually halfway done, at this point.

Toasted Vanilla Chai Deep Cleansing Hand Soap

A cozy, inviting blend of whipped vanilla, spun sugar & winter spice

I actually purchased Toasted Vanilla Chai in the form of a Gentle Foaming Hand Soap from our local Bath & Body Works before (haulage here) and while I detested the ugly cartoon-y packaging, I really enjoyed the scent! It was warm and sweet and caramel-y!

So to see it in much nicer packaging and in the form of a Deep Cleansing Hand Soap (my fave!) was awesome! I can’t wait to use this baby, but I think I will have to wait and save it for later (I prefer to savor the nicer scents). In fact, I think I’ll save all the Deep Cleansing Hand Soaps for later.

Winter Citrus Wreath Deep Cleansing Hand Soap

A bright, wintertime arrangement of balsam wreath, fresh citrus & forest breeze

How cool does the green liquid look? I’m obsessed! No clue what to expect from the scent though. Balsam is a tricky one for me and da’ heck is Forest Breeze supposed to smell like (B&BW back at it again with making stuff up for the notes), but Citrus sounds promising.

For all I know, Winter Citrus Wreath could be a surprisingly beautiful scent, not unlike Snowy Morning Shower Gel (haulage here) from my 2nd Bath & Body Works Online Order. We shall see.

Nordic Noel Deep Cleansing Hand Soap Pack (5pc)

Impressive lineup, packaging-wise! Any of these, would instantly class up the place!

Scent-wise, this was actually a pretty good selection!

There was some freshies (Coconut Mint Drop + Winter Citrus Wreath) and some fruities (Frosted Cranberry + Fresh Sparkling Snow) and a warmer sweet scent (Toasted Vanilla Chai) to round it all up!

Worthy of note, these Deep Cleansing Hand Soaps do not last long, unlike the Gentle Foaming Hand Soaps which I feel last forever.

Vanilla Bean Noel Deep Cleansing Hand Soaps

Christmas smells like a wintry sweet treat of fresh vanilla bean, warm caramel & sugar cookies

I’ve already purchased one of these babies in my 1st U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Order (haulage here), but since they went on sale, figured I might as well stock up.

I mean, picking up two more isn’t exactly stocking up, but I did purchase a whole bunch of Hand Soaps locally during The Big Sale (haulage here) and again during The Flash Sale (haulage here) and some Fall Tradition ones in between (here).

Vanilla Bean Noel is a safe bet (in any form) and a personal favorite of mine! Sadly, it’s only available for purchase during Winter, but fortunately, they bring it out literally every year!

Creamy Luxe Hand Soaps

I gotta’ be honest, Creamy Luxe Hand Soaps aren’t exactly my faves, but I get drawn in by the impossibly beautiful iridescent-y liquid! The graphics tend to be very pretty too!

I first clocked Creamy Luxe Hand Soaps back in 2017 and couldn’t resist picking one up! I got it in the gorgeous packaging and equally gorgeous scent Mediterranean Blue Waters (haulage here)!

Never thought about them again, for 2 whole years, up until the Mediterranean Market Collection was released this past Summer. I snagged x4 Summer Tiramisu and a single Capri Ocean Breeze and a single Limoncello and one Sunshine & Lemons during The Big Sale (haulage here). Then, during The Flash Sale, I snagged Vanilla Bean Noel and Marshmallow Flurries (haulage here).

I make sure to get nicer scents obviously, but scents aside, these things are just so pretty! I couldn’t resist picking up three more! I mean, look at that packaging!

Winter Creamy Luxe Hand Soap

Christmas smells like a bright, wintertime arrangement of spiced orange, fir balsam & clove buds

Not even gonna’ front. I got Winter mostly because of the beautiful packaging. I just can’t resist any Bath & Body Works product that has any sort of “Destination-themed Packaging”.

I thought all those skyscrapers and buildings looked so cool on the packaging! I also thought the white liquid, well, pearly white liquid, was pretty cool and unique too! Everything from the color-scheme to the graphics on this baby, strongly appealed to me!

I thought the packaging fit in with the name quite well too! You think Winter, you think snow, which made the opalescent liquid, deliciously appropriate!

As for the scent, they release Winter literally every Winter lol I don’t believe I’ve ever given it a sniff (I’m a bit iffy when it comes to Balsam), but here’s hoping it’s another pleasantly fresh scent! If not, at least it looks pretty lol

Arctic Berry Creamy Luxe Hand Soap

Christmas smells like a winter-perfect blend of snowkissed berries, iced pomegranate & cedarwood

I fell head over heels in love with Arctic Berry as a 3-Wick Candle earlier on in the month (haulage here) so snatching it up as a Creamy Luxe Hand Soap was a no-brainer! I would’ve preferred to have snagged it as a Deep Cleansing Hand Soap, but beggars can’t be choosers (this was all I could find).

That said, the packaging delighted me to no end! The houses illustrated on the packaging, kinda’ reminded me of the artwork in an old-school anime favorite of mine called Tokimeki Tonight (Ranzi Almud-hesha which roughly translated to The Enchanting Ranzi for those who watched it dubbed into Arabic, like me). Also, between the iridescent blue liquid and the foiled blue graphics, the color-scheme on this baby was just… gawjus!

Aesthetics aside, Arctic Berry was one of the nicer candy-like scents that I’d sniffed recently and I needed more of it!

Champagne Toast Creamy Luxe Hand Soap

Christmas smells like a cheers-worthy spritzer of bubbly champagne, sparkling berries & juicy tangerine

Like I keep reiterating, there was a lot of hype surrounding Champagne Toast. As such, I picked it up in several forms; travel size Shower Gel (here) and single wick Jar Candle (here) as well as a Creamy Luxe Hand Soap (in this post) and Wallflower Fragrance (in this post).

The packaging wasn’t as pretty as the other two Creamy Luxe Hand Soaps, but it was still quite pretty! I still haven’t made up my mind about the scent though. Purely based on the scent of the Shower Gel, sometimes I get Haribo Worms (yummy!) and sometimes I get Peach (blech). I suppose I’ll have a more definitive stance once I actually get around to using this baby.

Gentle Foaming Hand Soaps

These popped up around the time I was getting ready to place my order (I told you, the U.S. Bath & Body Works were constantly coming out with new products, new scents, new deals, new everything, on the daily)! They came out with way more, but I just went for these four (from two different collections) for different reasons.

Gentle Foaming Hand Soaps are slowly growing on me. Obviously, it depends on what you choose, but more often than not, the graphics are quite cute and scents are pretty good! For me, I’ve really been liking how foam-y these things get lol

That said, I might be the only person in the world complaining about this, but I kinda’ find it annoying how long these things last, especially if I’m not enjoying the scent. Sometimes, they’ll last for well over two months!

Cozy Vanilla Cream Gentle Foaming Hand Soap

A smooth, sugary blend of whipped frosting, sweet cream & vanilla bean

Cozy Vanilla Cream was the only thing in this entire haul that arrived damaged (the pump was partially broken) as shown in the photo.

I went for Cozy Vanilla Cream because I feel like I didn’t get enough vanilla-oriented Hand Soaps in this haul, or any of my other hauls for that matter, aside from a handful of Vanilla Bean Noel Hand Soaps.

I saw that the fragrance notes included Vanilla Bean and was sold. I’d say it was a safe-buy (what could go wrong with Vanilla?), but after that horrible, horrible, horrible Boardwalk Vanilla Cone (the most evil vanilla scent of all time), I’m now more wary.

The packaging did nothing for me (well, other than make me hungry), but that’s fine because I was more interested in the scent. Hopefully it’ll turn out to be one of the nicer vanilla-oriented scents and nothing like that awful Boardwalk Vanilla Cone.

Iced Gingerbread Gentle Foaming Hand Soap

A sweet & spicy treat of homemade gingerbread, brown sugar & vanilla extract

I’m the weirdo that enjoys and actually prefers Gingerbread Cookies and Oatmeal Cookies over Chocolate Chip Cookies lol So based on the notes, this baby was right up my alley!

Also, between those cookies and the pink liquid, I thought the packaging was stupid cute! Had to get it.

Pink Citrus Gentle Foaming Hand Soap

A bright, cheery blend of ruby grapefruit & dewy petals

Odd scent to be coming out with during December (seems like more of a Spring or Summer release), but I certainly wasn’t complaining.

Maybe it was a re-release, because the packaging strongly resembled the packaging on my Paris Cafe 3-Wick Candle from the Earthenware Collection (mostly the speckled part) purchased locally, during The Big Sale (here). Maybe, maybe not.

In any case, I liked the ombre aspect (blue fading into pink) which kinda’ reminded me of that one gorgeous ColourPop Holiday Collection from a few years back (here). Very pretty!

As for the scent, Grapefruit is pretty hit or miss for me, but they won me over with Dewy Petals.

White Sands Gentle Foaming Hand Soap

A refreshing, beachy blend of sea spray, white peony & salted amber

As long as Bath & Body Works continue to make these aquatic-type scents with blue-themed packaging, I’m going to continue purchasing them. I just can’t resist them! I love my freshies! Also, the blue ombre packaging coupled with the blue liquid was gorgeousness! Easy purchase!

Wallflower Fragrances

– Land of Sweets Pack (6pc)
– x3 Twin Packs (2pc each)
– x5 Singles

Oh man! The last time I even saw a Wallflower Fragrance Duo in Kuwait was literally when Bath & Body Works first opened up shop years ago (haulage here)! I’ve never seen them locally since!

Heck, it’s extremely difficult for me to find any Wallflower Fragrances in Kuwait now, especially in anything other than the designated handful of scents (that never change). I’ll just stumble upon newer scents randomly. Only recently, with the launch of the online website, was I able to purchase different scents and still, there was an issue (haulage here).

Meanwhile, on the U.S. Bath & Body Works site, they had every scent you could think of and since they were on sale, I decided to indulge.

I had to snag the adorable Land of Sweets Wallflower Fragrance Pack (6pc) and since they were “online only” x3 Wallflower Fragrance Duos (2pc each) and lastly x5 Wallflower Fragrances (singles) making a total of x17 Wallflower Fragrances.

I haven’t gotten around to using any of them just yet, because I’ve currently got other scents plugged in at the moment.

Land of the Sweets Wallflower Fragrance Pack (5pc)

Six full-size Wallflower Fragrances keep your home fresh all season long. Simply pair each Wallflower Fragrance with a Wallflower Fragrance Plug (sold separately) for fragrance that welcomes you home for weeks and weeks.

Includes Vanilla Snowflake and Blueberry Sugar and Chocolate Lava Cake and Cinnamon Caramel Swirl and Peppermint Marshmallow and Sugared Snickerdoodle

There were other Wallflower Fragrance Packs, but I went with the Land of Sweets because it consisted of gourmands, which typically tend to be crowd-pleasers and make my home smell inviting!

The Wallflower Fragrance Packs (6pc) retailed for $27 (KD 8/260) and were not included in the sale.

However, with the 20% Off Code that I used, the price got knocked down from $27 (KD 8/260) to $21.60 (KD 6/600).

That means that the Wallflower Fragrances cost KD 1/100 each. Not bad, considering they were new-new!

Vanilla Snowflake

This is what Christmas smells like: Frozen Vanilla, Iced Fir Needles, Mint Leaf, Coconut Flakes with Essential Oils

I snagged Vanilla Snowflake as a Single Wick Candle in my 2nd U.S. B&BW Online Order mostly out of curiosity (haulage here), but that order hadn’t arrived at the time of this order.

However, this baby arrived as part of a pre-packaged Set, er Pack. Lookin’ at the notes now though, I’m thinkin’ Vanilla Snowflake might smell similar if not identical to Coconut Mint Drop. Fingers crossed!

Blueberry Sugar

This is what Christmas smells like: Sweet Blueberries, Brown Sugar, Graham Cracker Crust with Essential Oils

Ugh! Yuck! I bought Blueberry Sugar as a 3-Wick Candle earlier (haulage here) and absolutely hated it! It was an extremely obnoxious, very synthetic, overly fruity Blueberry scent that did not appeal to anyone in our household, myself included.

I’m not looking forward to using it, but it came as part of the Pack. Hopefully it’ll smell better as a Wallflower Fragrance as opposed to the 3-Wick Candle.

In the interest of full disclosure, the 3-Wick Candle was already 12 months old (being sold and passed off as “new”) at the time of purchase, if that makes any difference.

Chocolate Lava Cake

This is what Christmas smells like: Scrumptious Chocolate Cake, Gooey Cocoa Center, Powdered Sugar Dusting with Essential Oils

So. Much. Yes.

I couldn’t resist snatching up Chocolate Lava Cake as a 3-Wick Candle in my 1st U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Order (haulage here) and consequentially fell in love with the delicious chocolatey scent! Naturally, I wanted to try it out as a Wallflower Fragrance too!

This baby was actually the main driving force behind the purchase of the Land of Sweets Wallflower Fragrance Pack… despite that it was also available for individual purchase lol

Cinnamon Caramel Swirl

This is what Christmas smells like: Gooey Caramel, Grated Cinnamon, Vanilla Bean with Essential Oils

I actually got this as a Wallflower Fragrance from our local Bath & Body Works earlier (haulage here) and consciously purchased it as a Single Wick Candle in my 2nd U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Order (haulage here) as well. Not to mention the Gentle Foaming Hand Soap that came as part of the Land of Sweets Hand Soap Pack.

Did I want yet another Cinnamon Caramel Swirl and as a Wallflower Fragrance again? Not really, but it came as part of this Pack too. Plus, aside from the Cinnamon (which could go either way), the notes seem innocent enough (nothing offensive).

Peppermint Marshmallow

This is what Christmas smells like: Crushed Peppermint, Fluffy Marshmallows, Powdered Sugar with Essential Oils

I snagged Peppermint Marshmallow as a Single Wick Candle in my 2nd U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Order (haulage here) and was just as excited to get it as a Wallflower Fragrance in this order! I’m banking on it smelling just as pleasant as Twisted Peppermint.

Sugared Snickerdoodle

This is what Christmas smells like: Warm Spices, Creamy Vanilla, Sugared Musk with Essential Oils

I’d grabbed Sugared Snickerdoodle as Wallflower Fragrance from our local online store earlier purely because I’d run out options (haulage here). It better smell nice, now that I’ve got two of it!

Land of Sweets Wallflower Fragrance Pack (5pc)

In hindsight, maybe I shouldn’t have snagged this particular Wallflower Fragrance Pack, since I’ve already got a handful of repeats, but too late to do anything about it now.

Hopefully, it all pans out and the scents turn out to be great!

Wallflower Fragrance Duos (2pc) (Online Only)

– Hot Cocoa & Cream
– Black Raspberry Vanilla
– Sandalwood Vanilla

Like I said, the last time I saw Wallflower Fragrance Duos (2pc) was ages ago during the semi-annual sale when Bath & Body Works first opened up shop in Kuwait (haulage here)!

Meanwhile, they had a ton of Duos to choose from on the U.S. Online Bath & Body Works Store! Some of them were available year-round and some were seasonal while some only popped up during the semi-annual sale and some were limited edition while others were “online only”.

Normally, each Wallflower Fragrance Duo (2pc) would retail for $12.50 (KD 3/800) which meant that together, these three would total $37.50 (KD 11/400)

However, there was a 3 for $27 (3 for KD 8/250) deal on the Wallflower Fragrance Duos (2pc).

For some reason, it looked like someone took a knife and went crazy hacking away at the packaging on each of these Wallflower Fragrance Duos, because all of them arrived in tatters and I had to piece them together like a puzzle lol Thankfully, the insides were unharmed.

Hot Cocoa & Cream

Decadent Milk Chocolate, Fresh Steamed Milk, Mini Marshmallows

Hot Cocoa & Cream was a more recent discovery and therefore a newer favorite!

I’ve actually purchased Hot Cocoa & Cream in almost all of its available forms; PocketBac (here) and a full sized Body Lotion (here) and travel size Body Cream (here) and travel size Fragrance Mist (here) and a full sized Shower Gel (here).

I’ve also purchased Hot Cocoa & Cream in the form of a Candle several times already; first as a 3-Wick Candle back in November 2018 (here) and another 3-Wick Candle a year later during The Flash Sale in November 2019 (here) and again as a 3-Wick Candle from the Land of Sweets Collection in my 1st U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Order (here) and finally as a Single Wick Candle from the Holiday Traditions Collection in my 2nd U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Order (here).

However, as a Wallflower Fragrance, I’ve only ever purchased it once, during The Flash Sale (here) and after finishing it up, figured I’d spring for the two-piece this time. The reason being, although pleasant (like a lightly burnt vanilla sponge cake, fresh out of the oven), the scent was quite weak. I figured I could plug both of these at once and let them work in tandem to intensify the scent!

Also, how cute was the picture on the packaging ♥ I liked that the liquid was a chocolate brown too, to match the scent!

Black Raspberry Vanilla

Vine-Ripened Blackberries, Vanilla Orchid, Creamy Sandalwood

I like the scent of Blackberries and I love the scent of Sandalwood and I’ve still got no clue what Vanilla Orchid is supposed to be, but it sounded lovely, ipso facto I had to snatch this sucka’ up! The packaging did nothing for me, but the notes were highly intriguing!

If it’s anything like the Raspberry Vanilla PocketBac (Let’s Celebrate) (haulage here) which had similar notes, then I’m positive I’m going to love it! Here’s hoping Black Raspberry Vanilla smells just as pleasant, if not more so, than my Black Currant Vanilla 3-Wick Candle (haulage here) which was everything!!!!

Sandalwood Vanilla

Exotic Sandalwood, Luscious Caramel, Fresh Vanilla

Once again, I got drawn in by the Sandalwood. I’m a big fan of Caramel and Vanilla! You throw some Sandalwood in the mix and I am so down! Packaging was blah, but that’s fine, because I was more interested in the scent.

Wallflower Fragrances (Singles)

Finally, we come to the singles.

Normally, these retail for $6.50-$7.50 (KD 1/990 – KD 2/300) each

However, instead of paying $32.50-$37.50 for 5 (KD 10 – KD 11/500 for 5), there was a 5 for $23 (5 for KD 7) deal on them.

It wasn’t exactly the best of deals, but I really had my heart set on a few of these scents, particularly since I hadn’t seen any of them being sold locally as Wallflower Fragrances.

I gotta’ mention the fact that these babies arrived in protective plastic encasing, which was much appreciated, as opposed to our local Bath & Body Works that just dumped them into a box with some bubble wrap and sent them over (here) lol

Snowflakes & Citrus

Frozen Lemon Peel, Fresh Squeezed Mandarin, Winter White Mango with Essential Oils

I’ve actually purchased Snowflakes & Citrus as a 3-Wick Candle back in December 2018 (here) and fell in love with the scent! Not surprisingly, between the Lemon and Mandarin and Mango, the scent was citrusy and sweet and just awesome!

More recently, I snagged it as a Single Wick Candle in my 2nd U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Order (here) and now, as a Wallflower Fragrance in my 3rd U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Order.

I’ve got high hopes for this baby! Also, the teal blue liquid looks stun-ning!

Praline Pecan & Cream

Roasted Apples, Sugared Chestnuts, Whipped Buttercream with Essential Oils

The reddish liquid was kinda’ cute and based on the design displayed on the tab, I wanna’ say this was also from the Nordic Noel Collection, but don’t quote me on that.

Initially, I wanted to purchase Praline Pecan & Cream as a 3-Wick Candle from the U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Store. However, those things are more expensive and pretty heavy. So, I figured I’d go with the significantly lighter and cheaper Wallflower Fragrance, for now. The fragrance notes are what drew me in; Apples and Chestnuts and Buttercream sounded sooo good!

Chocolate Peppermint Cream

This is what Christmas smells like: Crushed Peppermint Candies, Creamy Chocolate, White Sugar Crystals with Essential Oils

I was delightfully surprised by the performance of my White Mint Latte 3-Wick Candle that I’d purchased during The Flash Sale earlier (here)! Based on the notes, I was hoping Chocolate Peppermint Cream was just as a repackaged (and renamed) White Mint Latte. Regardless, I thought the light blue liquid was gorgeousness!

Champagne Toast

Bubbly Champagne, Sparkling Berries, Juicy Tangerine with Essential Oils

Like I keep reiterating, there was a lot of hype surrounding Champagne Toast. As such, I picked it up in several forms; travel size Shower Gel (here) and single wick Jar Candle (here) as well as a Creamy Luxe Hand Soap (in this post) and Wallflower Fragrance (in this post).

Purely based on the scent on the Shower Gel, sometimes I get Haribo Worms (yummy!) and sometimes I get Peach (blech). I suppose I’ll have a more definitive stance once I actually get around to using this baby. Either way, the pink liquid on this thing was too cute!

In The Stars

Sparkling Bergamot, Apricot Blossom, Fluffed Sandalwood with Essential Oils

From the moment I clocked In The Stars, locally (back in March 2019), it was love at first sniff! I’ve purchased it in every form, consecutively, starting with the larger sized 3-Wick Candle (here) and larger sized Shower Gel (here) and itty bitty Hand Cream (here) and both the travel size Fragrance Mist and larger sized Fragrance Mist (here) and as a Single Wick Jar Candle in my 2nd U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Order (here).

The scent smelled like sweet pineapples, almost reminiscent of my old-school favorite Pineapple Orchid (haulage here), with a healthy dose of something intoxicating (I wanna’ say sandalwood)! I’ve also grown to adore the sparkly gold packaging with hints of pale pink, found on all the products in the collection, and thought it was quite fitting with the actual name of the collection!

I haven’t spotted In The Stars as a Wallflower Fragrance in Kuwait (neither in-store nor online) so I figured I’d order it online from the U.S. Bath & Body Works. Also, how adorable is the pale pink liquid ♥

I’m pretty happy with the haulage! If anything caught your eye, be on the lookout for this stuff, locally, around November/December 2020 (because… Kuwait).
