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!

Demeter Fragrances

I’ve been dying to purchase from Demeter since forever!

I posted about Demeter in my previous post (dis). I couldn’t decide on what to get… so I went crazy… and purchased x35 different scents (at $3.40 each) making my order total $119. To be fair, I got them in the sampler size, thinking they’d be the size of actual samples that you typically get as a freebie. I didn’t know they’d be this big lol

Some of these scents had very, very long descriptions. Instead of copy-pasting the entire thing, I decided to just add a “short” description from the site and link each scent to the description page (just click on the title of any scent) and add my first impressions directly underneath.

I tried to group the scents into drink scents, food-y scents, herbal-y scents and abstract scents, but gave up towards the end lol Also, I found a ton of dupes!

Siberian Pine Diffuser Oil (free gift with purchase)
Pomander Roll On Perfume Oil (free gift with purchase)

Bath and Body Works Flash Sale

As if the previous promos (KD 1/750 Showers Gels and KD 2/500 Body Lotions) weren’t enough, seemingly out of the blue, Bath & Body Works had a Flash Sale… only days before “Black Friday“!

Online Promo:
3-wick Candles were reduced from KD 8 to KD 3 each
Shower Gels were reduced from KD 5/500 for KD 2/750
Mini Perfume Sprays (travel size eau de parfums) were reduced from KD 4/500 to KD 1/750
Hand Soaps were reduced from KD 3/750 to KD 1/750

Fragrance Mists were reduced from KD 7 toKD 2/750
Travel Size Fragrance Mists were reduced from KD 3/250 to KD 1/750
Travel Size Body Lotions were reduced from KD 2/750 to KD 1/750

Room Sprays were reduced from KD 2/750 to KD 1/750
Wallflower Refills were reduced from KD 2/250 to KD 1
Scentportable Holders (car fragrance) were reduced to KD 1

The total for this online order was KD 50/500 (free shipping)

Once again, I was feeling pretty smug about placing my order when I did, because the 40% Off promo they had for “Black Friday” (or “Cyber Week” as they call it on the site), was pretty disappointing and not nearly as good as the one they had during the Flash Sale.

I even included the percentage saved next to each item (nicked from their site, I didn’t math this time lol) just to show you guys the difference. It adds up, you guys.

Needless to say, I did not purchase anything online or in-store from our local Bath&Body Works during “Black Friday” (hard pass).

I placed my order on November 21 and everything (including the wasteful pages and pages of the receipt/invoice) arrived safely and well-packaged the next day.

Bath and Body Works Shower Gel Haul

The new Fall Traditions 2019 Collection popped up online and as time went on, they added a “sneak peak” of the Holiday 2018 Collection (which was being marketed as “new” even though it was last year’s collection).

I’ve spoken about the local Bath&Body Works tricking customers into believing they were purchasing the latest Holiday Collection except it was always already 12 months old, several times now.

That said, beggars can’t be choosers and when they had an online deal on Shower Gels, it was just too good to pass up. So, I quickly placed my order and picked up some of the stuff I’d been lusting after (sadly, Hot Cocoa & Cream Shower Gel was excluded from the promo and was going for full price… sneaky, sneaky).

Online Promo:
Shower Gels were reduced from KD 5/500 to KD 1/750 each
PocketBacs were 5 for KD 3

The total for this online order was KD 10

I placed my order on November 16 and it arrived safely the next day (free shipping over KD 9)

Currently, for “Black Friday” they’ve got 40% Off Sitewide and free shipping, meaning Shower Gels were reduced from KD 5/500 to KD 3/300.

So… I’m pretty much patting myself on the back for not waiting and taking advantage of the previous deal and purchasing these Shower Gels for KD 1/750 a pop (she said ever so smugly)!

Hugo Boss Boss The Scent Private Accord For Her Eau de Parfum

The Autumn Perfumes Exhibition took place at Mishref Fair Grounds (Halls 5,6,7,8) during October 24 and was meant to end on November 6, but was extended to November 9 (because… weekend).

After being smitten with a sample of Huge Boss Ma Vie pour Femme during the previous Perfumes Exhibition at the start of the year (here), I made it a point to hit up the Hugo Boss counter to purchase the full size, but instead, ended up falling in love and walking away with Boss The Scent Private Accord For Her Eau de Parfum (name needs to be longer). It was a delightful gourmand that put me in the mindset of sipping on hot cocoa!

Carolina Herrera Good Girl Eau de Parfum Haul

Carolina Herrera Good Girl Gift Set

It’s so good to be bad!

The Autumn Perfumes Exhibition took place at Mishref Fair Grounds (Halls 5,6,7,8) during October 24 and was meant to end on November 6, but was extended to November 9 (because… weekend).

After walking around for a bit, I found a booth (forgot the name) that sold fragrances from several brands including Paco Rabanne (where I purchased the Invictus Gift Set as a birthday gift for my cousin) and Calvin Klein and Jimmy Choo and Marc Jacobs and Carolina Herrera and Jean Paul Gaultier and more (can’t remember the rest).

After playing around with Carolina Herrera Good Girl Eau de Parfum I was completely smitten with the scent and picked up the Gift Set for myself!
