Bath and Body Works
I’m having my morning tea (geeks need geeky tea! Gotta love it! I’m partial to Prager’s blend) with some obscenely bad for you crumpets (these things should be illegal! Which is why I don’t buy them often! Bad! Bad! Bad!) this morning and I’m flipping through Bath and Body Works Look Book for Fall 2008.
I can’t help but a tad bit disappointed as it appears they aren’t releasing as much as they did last year. I think this accounts for the spending habits of Americans right now in a way as last year they had a slew of items released and this year I imagine they are trying to keep it simple.
It’s an interesting selection however I think it’s safe to say the Temptation 3-1 Shower Gels won’t be making a reappearance anytime soon and they may very well be gone for good aside from possibly small releases such as the Hello Sugar! Collection.
Typical coupons inside!
Black Amethyst is making a guest starring appearance on a five page spread lay out in the booklet. I got a lab sample of this and it’s rather deep and dark for Bath & Body Works. I’m testing it out and will review it shortly!
A new Spa line entitled Shea Cashmere will be available shortly. It seems like a comfortable scent that sports major moisturizing benefits. I’m curious about this one!
Body Cream $17.50 USD
Bubble Bath $18 USD
Body Lotion $16.50 USD
Although the Sleep Collection is not new they have added quite a few items to the line up that are interesting. The items are scented with Warm Milk and Honey and are limited edition. Available as of September 3rd online and in shops. These come in heavy glass bottles and are definately vanity worth. They normally come in Lavender or Vanilla Lavender variations however I think that the Warm Milk and Honey sounds rather fitting for a “sleep” collection!
Warm Milk and Honey Aromatherapy Pillow Mist $10 USD
Warm Milk and Honey Aromatherapy Body Lotion $13 USD
Warm Milk and Honey Aromatherapy Massage Oil $16 USD
Warm Milk and Honey Aromatherapy Luxe Bath $16.50 USD
Cancer survivor Marisa Accocella Marchetto teamed up with C.O. Bigelow to create an exclusive kit the proceeds of which go to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Each Kit is $36 USD and contains an array of C.O. Bigelow goodies housed in a cute cardboard suitcase.
A very small sneak peak of this year’s Winter/Holiday Collection:
Bit disappointed that the same old flavors are back for the Holiday selections. Although I am happy to see Twisted Peppermint back. A new Bath Parfait is being introduced as well which looks quite lovely.
Holiday Traditional Items will be available as soon as October 13! And as of November 3rd the Foaming Bath Parfait will be available for $12.50 USD.
And finally a few autumn bits to keep us happy!
All in all a rather nice selection of goodies from Bath & Body Works!
Lemming any of these items?
Yearning for the Temptations to come back?

Bath and Body Works Spring Collection 2008: Temptations Body Spray Review
Bath and Body Works is slowly updating it’s website with the new Summer Collections for 2008! One item I ran across while breezing around the site are the new C.O. Bigelow Body Washes!
Tis a mint infused fruity body wash that promises to invigorate you in the shower and wake you up! I’m just thrilled to hear they are infused with mint! How yummie is that?
Raspberry Mint, Lime Mint, Lemon Mint, and Orange Mint are available now from Bath and Body Works for $12 USD each!
Expect a review soon as I’m very tempted by these!

I’ve gotten a few e-mails asking me about the Bath and Body Works Spring and Summer Collection. Most of the questions were asking me about the Temptation line. Sadly, I have no information in regards to any new releases to the line. As the days past I’m doubtful anything new will be released from the popular line.
The bad news is I think maybe Bath and Body Works is replacing the line with other items but the good news is they do have a very tiny collection of body sprays that are part of the popular Temptation Collection!
Three Body Sprays have been released and appear to be available exclusively throught the website! Each body spray is $8 USD and available in three scents. The scents are Frosting Forever, Frozen Daiquiri, and Banana Smoothie.
These are worth picking up if you crave a light, fun scent for the Summer! Vanilla Frosting is a yummie concoction of vanilla frosting and vanilla cupcake! Frozen Daiquiri is a sweet strawberry scent with very faint touches of lime! Banana Smoothie is a decadent combination of banana and strawberry!
If you crave something sweet and fun for the Summer and you’re yearning for the return of Bath and Body Works popular Temptation Collection these might be somewhat you’ll want to snatch up for your very own!
I needed serious retail therapy this weekend. Honestly, I did. I’ve been so upset the past week that my friend Jai decided I needed a day of shopping (as if either of us needs an excuse to shop). So away we went on Saturday afternoon.
We stopped at Bath and Body Works not only because I had a thirst to sniff the new Hello Sugar! Collection but also because Jai has a thing with tanning and bronzers and all that crap so he had to peek at the new dial a tan thingy (or whatever it’s called) that BBW has out right now. According to him tan is sexy and his boyfriend think he looks amazing with a tan so I guess that means Jai has to do everything he can to get a sexy glow for his significant other. I say whatever floats your boat but I’ll be in the shade, under a palm tree, thanks very much!
It wasn’t difficult to locate Hello Sugar! as it was right up front on a huge display. I was scared that if I picked one bottle up the rest would tumble all over the place since they had them stacked so high.
And the verdict is in. The Muse is both delighted and disappointed with Hello Sugar!
I picked up the Body Splash and the Three in One Shower Gel to start. First of all I should take note and mention that the Body Spray came in an ultra cute bottle with little faux rock candy dangling from the top. It’s a plastic bottle but it can easily pass for glass! I like it! Very cute and different for Bath and Body Works!
I’m a disappointed because this smells nothing like I imagined. I was seeking something fruity with an underlay of sweet for the Summer. I associate sweet and fruity smells with Summer and adjust my fragrance wardrobe according to that. This is fruity but not so much sweet. Turns out this is more of a foody scent. It smells to me like lemon cake or lemon meringue pie. The sugar is there and the lemon is there but it’s somehow been combined with some sort of cake or baked good smell.
That’s the bad news….however the good news is even though it’s disappointing that it isn’t fresh and fruity it is a delightfully beautiful scent! The sweet and sour scent of lemon combines wonderfully with the underlay of cake I’m getting and the entire smell transforms into a very light bakery scent. It’s so very difficult to describe but it’s as if I am smelling some sort of lemon tart or pastry.
I’m not entirely sure I’m loving the idea of Hello Sugar! for the Summer but it’ll make a beautiful Fall scent or even Winter!
Overall I like it. It’s very interesting and different for Bath and Body Works. I’m enjoying the fact that they have dipped their toes into something new and exciting and aren’t keeping with the normal scheme and theme of things!
Cheers to Hello Sugar! The Muse enjoys veering off the well walked path on occasion!
Hello Sugar! is available now from Bath and Body Works! $12 USD for the Three in One Shower Gel and $12.50 USD for the Body Splash.

I check up on Bath and Body Works
daily to see if any new Temptations have been released and during my regular visit I noticed they had a new line available. I could be wrong but maybe this new line will be replacing the regular Temptation Collection that we’ve been seeing for the past few years!
The new collection is entitled Hello Sugar! and looks very promising. I’m hoping that this smells like a sweetened, fruity, sour combination of lemon and sugar but I’m fearful this will be some sort of Fresh Lemon Sugar dupe (not that I don’t love Fresh Lemon but something different would be lovely) I’m very much in favor of the fruity, sweet version please!
The collection includes a three in one shower gel, a body spray, a shimmer body lotion, a body meringue, and a lipgloss. It’s only available in the Hello Sugar! fragrance but I’m hopeful they’ll extend the line to include other scents! I love the Tempation line but I don’t mind seeing something new like this pop up either!
Wanna try it?
