So I went to BBW

I wasn't gonna do it. I tried to resist it. But I have been feeling like crud for about 4 days and finally felt a bit better last night and knew that I'd feel better if I bought myself something pretty LOL.

Wow, the BBW by my house had a TON of stuff on sale. I spent $43 and got 4 home fragrance oils (mango madarin, 2 pineapple, and one pineapple), a bunch of 3 in 1s (beyond berry, gingerbread spice, cinnamon bun heaven, alluring apple), 3 hand soaps (all in the new pineapple scent which is yum yum yum), pumpkin pie paradise body scrub, and a cute denim tote bag that I totally didn't need but it was only $3 so I couldn't resist. Most of the stuff was on sale for 75% off so there were definitely some good deals to be had. I actually had a lot more in my bag but put some of it back. Im thinking of going back to pick up a few Christmas gifts.

RE: So I went to BBW

I happened to check the website this morning, and they have a buy one get one free on a lot of the candles, fragrance oils, and wallflowers. I am very tempted to try some of the fragrance oils, but I am trying to resist.

I have been pining away for their Iced Pineapple scent from like 10 years ago.

Yep and it smells deeeeeevine. I bought three of the pump soaps but didn't notice if there was anything else with that scent. There is a home fragrance oil in pineapple that smells good in the bottle but I've got it burning right now and it's nice but not nearly as strong as the ones from Body Shop.

IMO, the new Pineapple scent smells NOTHING like the Iced Pineapple scent from years ago. It doesn't even smell like pineapple to me. It smells more like fake pineapple mixed with baby aspirin orange and a bit of something odd like baby powder. It's vile! I'm glad that Bugg likes it though - if she likes it, then that's HER problem (LOL..just kidding, Bugg! :)

Iced Pineapple smelled like fresh pineapple. To me, the Bath & Body Works Pineapple smelled like a combination of a bunch of other scents. I'm glad you liked it, though! I don't know why they take away some of their great scents and then bring out new, weird ones...like Midnight Pomegranate!
