New Summer Scents from Slatkin

Bath & Body Works just came out with 4 new late summer scents from Slatkin. It seems a little late in the season to be coming out with more summer scents, but I'll always welcome a new scent to try.

Green Daisy

This one is my favorite. "Citrus, pear and green apple add to the delicate floral essence of lily of the valley and dewy jasmine." This scent most reminds me of their earlier fresh bamboo candle. There was something missing from their summer scents this year and I feel like this was it. There needed to be a nice fresh green scent. The top note here is fresh plants then the lightest notes of floral and fruit. This could also be a nice spring scent as well.

Eucalyptus Mint

This I purchased in a small size but was disappointed with. It sounded like a perfect relaxing spa scent - one that didn't have lavender in it for a change but it came out smelling like a combination of soap and toothpaste for me - mainly just the mint with no eucalyptus. But it still seemed like an appropriate scent to leave in the bathroom. says it's a "A bright, refreshing blend of mint, citrus and ginger with clear notes of fresh eucalyptus and jasmine."

Peach Bellini

Not a fan. Way too strong but not sweet. I was overwhelmed with the smell of strong peaches and potent fruit. "A light, delicate blend of white peach, sweet orange peel and yellow mandarin, finished with jasmine and sweet black currant."

Lotus Flower

This was a light floral scent that reminded me of Sunflowers perfume. Eh. I don't have any use for this type of scent - especially in the summer. I'm a fan of sandalwood in fragrances, but I didn't get it from this candle. "Delicate and fresh, this mix of beautiful lotus blossom, rose and white jasmine is perfectly finished with rich sandalwood."

Stay tuned. I've already had a sneak peek at some new fall scents this year. The best time of the year for fragrance and my favorite time of the year in general will soon be upon us!!
