Received a few new candles today, all of which smell amazing:
B&BW Blueberry Marshmallow Bar
B&BW Orange + Ginger
B&BW Palo Santo - I think this one might be my favorite of the 3 but time will tell.
The last of SAS candles came in, I plan to do one last store exchange.

You should take a look at Golden Honeycomb, I smelled that at my last visit and that smells wonderful.

Is the butterscotch note prominent to your nose? I really dislike butterscotch, both the smell and taste.

Raspberries & Whipped Vanilla is a must for me, smells delicious.

B&BW Strawberry Pound Cake.

I’m hoping that this one won’t be too cloying - it’s very sweet, cold (I’ve had it for a while, but haven’t burned it).
How on earth do they make that scent with essential oils

I suspect they are lying by omission and failing to mention all the aromachemicals they use in addition to whatever tiny % of vanilla oil they put in it

I’m not sure, but it’s quite potent. I remember the 3 wick filling the front of my car with sweetness on the drive home - closed, and cold.

It's more focused on the vanilla and honey mainly, there is some butterscotch.

If you like sweets there's the Sparkling Birthday Cake

Did my test run, looks like this one is a no for me. Got to exchange them out.

That is a huge benefit for buying B&BW candles, their exchange policy!! Have you got to smell either the Weekend in Rome or Springtime in Paris candles? The Rome one looked interesting but at the time there weren't any reviews on them. Just saw this morning that they have Pink Lavender & Expresso which sounds fantastic to me, wondering if it will be anything like Paris Cafe?

You're absolutely correct about Strawberry Pound Cake filling up a room, its very potent, even when unlit. It's my wife's favorite candle but it's been a couple years since I last bought one, glad to hear they are just as strong as ever!
