Black Candy Apple is one of six new Halloween Body Lotions that Bath & Body Works has released for Fall/Halloween 2011. These body lotions are the mini size (3 oz) and are $5 each or 3 for $10.
I did indeed pick up all six. It was kinda funny as I was willy nilly tossing them in my bag without smelling them in order to escape the aggressive SA that was following me around. Those BBW SA chicks are scary! You need to go into those stores with your fighting gear in place because those people will take you DOWN!
Let’s take a peek at Black Candy Apple and see if it was worth the trouble.
Black Candy Apple is a blend of juicy apple, caramelized sugar and irresistible vanilla. You’d think those notes would go brilliantly together but I personally find the “black” in the title is exactly what the scent is all about. This is darker and richer than I personally like.
The smell is a bit mysterious with a background of crunchy red apple and a prominent caramelized sugar note that when blended with the vanilla comes across richer and darker than what I like in a fragrance. I thought it might prove to smell foody/fruity but it has an edge that I can’t easily describe which I don’t really like.
If you like some of Bath and Body Works more darker blends like Midnight Pomegranate you’ll probably enjoy Black Candy Apple but don’t go into the purchase assuming this will be a sweet, fruity, candy-like scent because you’ll be disappointed.
Smelled it already?
