Fair warning, it’s gonna’ be a really long post!

1st US Bath and Body Works Scentportable Haul

These are the Scentportables that I purchased in my 1st US Bath & Body Works Online Order (dis)!

Scentportables aka Car Fragrances retail for $3.50, but there was a 3 for $9 “deal” on them. Locally, they retail for KD 1/500 (which converts to almost $5) each. Chew on that.

While in Kuwait I could only spot Endless Weekend (pass) and Rose Water & Ivy (definite pass) and that God-forsaken Sweet Pea (why is this scent still around?) on the US site they had all the scents and way more Scentporable Clips in all kinds of different designs! I was spoiled (spoilt?) for choice!

Seeing as how hot it could get in Kuwait during the summer, I didn’t wanna’ get anything that I might find irritating with time. Eventually, I went with x2 Vanilla Bean Noel (tried and true favorite in most forms) and a single Campsite Coffee (because… coffee, baby)! Not sure where each collection was from, but I know for a fact that Vanilla Bean Noel is part of the Holiday Traditions Collection that they release every Winter.

1st US Bath and Body Works Candle Haul

These are the 3-Wick Candles (forgot to take a group pic, whoops) that I purchased in my 1st US Bath & Body Works Online Order (dis)!

Normally, 3-Wick Candles retail for $24.50 each (around KD8) but they were reduced to $12.50 each (around KD4) during one of the promos.

Not quite sure what’s going on with all the different cardboard packaging, but I don’t really care. As long these suckas reached me intact (unlike our local Bath & Body Works *ahem*), I’m gucci.

Even cooler and unlike the 3-Wick Candles in Kuwait, these babies actually had the fragrance notes listed on the bottom of each Candle!

In the interest of full disclosure, the 3-Wick Candles seriously bumped up my Aramex shipping charges, but whatevs, I earns mah monies so I can does withs it what I wants and I wants Bath & Body Works 3-Wick Candles from the newest Holiday Collection shipped from the United States of America, straight to my doorstep.

Lastly, most of these were new-new so don’t expect to see them in Kuwait anytime soon. They’ll probably be available for purchase in Kuwait towards the end of 2020 (being passed off as “new”). So, once the Holiday 2020 Collection drops in the States, only then will the Holiday 2019 Collection be available for purchase in Kuwait.

Now, on to the pretty!

Bath and Body Works 3-Wick Candle Haul (Buy 3 Get 3 Free)

Bath & Body Works had this Buy 3 Get 3 Free deal going on. So, I decided to pick up a few more things and “take advantage” of that deal.

Unfortunately, their online website was still very glitchy and not the most intuitive. As a result, I ended up having to place several separate online orders, as opposed to one single online order. I really wish they’d just fix their site already.

So, in my previous order, I picked up x12 Wallflower Fragrance Refills (here) and during this order, I picked up x6 3-wick Candles. There was an issue with both packages.

3-wick Candles normally retail for KD 8 each. The total for this order was KD 24/000 (with free shipping)

Well, that’s not true.

I placed my order on December 6 and everything arrived the next day…

Except I could hear something moving around inside the box…

Bath and Body Works Wallflower Refills Haul (Buy 3 Get 3 Free)

Bath & Body Works had this Buy 3 Get 3 Free deal going on. So, I decided to pick up a few more things and take advantage of that deal.

Supposedly, you could mix and match, but when I added a few Wallflower Fragrance Refills, it wouldn’t let me combine them with Hand Soaps and kept giving me an error message.

When I tried to add 3-wick Candles to the mix, it showed me that I was going to have to pay full price for all the 3-wick Candles and get the much cheaper Wallflower Fragrance Refills for free.

Basically, my best option was to place 2 separate orders; one for Wallflower Fragrance Refills and another for 3-wick Candles.

Man, I wish they’d fix their website already, to where it would be slightly more intuitive.

Wallflower Fragrance Refills retail for KD 2/250 each

Aside from a few experimental ones, I mostly went with sweeter scents.

I picked up x12 Wallflower Fragrance Refills and payed for x6 while the other x6 ended up being free (due to the Buy 3 Get 3 Free promo). The total for this order was KD 11/250 (with free shipping). I placed my order on December 5 and everything arrived safely the next day, except…

These are the Hand Soaps I ended up purchasing during the Flash Sale (here). I got x1 of my beloved Deep Cleansing ones and x2 of those oh-so-pretty iridescent Creamy Luxe ones and x3 Gentle Foaming ones.

All of them were purchased online and therefore unsniffed. However, Vanilla Bean Noel is a constant repurchase (I stock up every year, more or less), so I already knew what I was getting with that scent.

Half the scents I picked up this time, included a lavender note, because I was influenced by Guerlain Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum (hauled here) and was hoping I’d stumble on something that smelled similar. I dunno’… I just wanted to branch out a little from my usual scents.
