Bath & Body Works Fall 2013 Test Candles are in test stores now kids….!
So what’s a test candle?! What’s a test store? What more candle scents!?
Yeah…this could get confusing. But if you like Bath & Body Works Candles you’ll want to read this post as some of these scents are NOT AVAILABLE in all stores.
I’ve been purchasing a few test candles here and there on E-bay but recently my reader told me on Instagram, “hey, there’s a test store in NJ!” I didn’t actually have time to head to NJ with my vacation and everything else going down so I called them up and they happily shipped me several candles that regular Bath & Body Works stores DID NOT get nor WILL they get.
Test stores are basically a way for Bath & Body Works to test the market for certain products, scents, etc….there are only a few test stores I know of and they are all very kindly about shipping items out however, you have to do a little research and know what products you’re looking for as they are not going to sit on the phone with you and tell you what the products or scents are that are in the test phase.
Test products are all packaged beautifully, they aren’t any different from what you’d get at your neighborhood Bath & Body Works. The only difference is they are not products readily available in all stores.
In this case, I was highly interested in hauling the Bath & Body Works Fall 2013 Test Candles. Now I originally ordered seven candles from the NJ store, used coupons, and had them shipped to be for $6.95. Not bad a deal compared to what I was paying for test candles on Evil-bay!
The original seven ordered I thought were test but two actually recently got introduced on Bath & Body Works website and those would be Cider Donut and Blueberry Pumpkin Patch.
Now the test scents I got that I have NOT seen in any stores outside of the NJ Test Store are:
- Pumpkin Hayride
- Apple Bonfire
- Roast Pumpkin Butter
- Pumpkin Carrot Cake
- Harvest Gathering
None of these as of yet have popped up in regular store locations.
I highly recommend picking them up if you love BBW Fall Candles 🙂
To do so simply have any coupons you want to use ready, call the store, and ask them to ship them to you (they ship with the US only). They’ll allow you to use a coupon over the phone as well as offer the sale price if candles are currently 2 for $22 or 2 for $20 (I’d wait for a candle sale to grab these).
Or if you leave in New York or within Ohio you can go to the test store which is located at:
Easton Town Center Columbus, OH (Phone 614-475-0196)
Westfield Garden State Plaza Paramus, NJ (Phone 201-843-8080)
Now that I know the test store is as close to Paramus I’ll def be heading there for the Holidays to see what other goodies I can find!
