Bath and Body Works Halloween 2013

While every other national retailer is getting into the spooky business, Bath and Body Works has officially given up on Halloween. They usually offer a variety of Halloween soaps, candles, and accessories but this year they put out one soap pump (in their signature Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin scent): Keep Calm, Carve On. At least it's creepy instead of cutesy, but I wish they'd brought back their Vampire Blood soap pump from last year. (There's also some hand sanitizers available online because that's what every kid wants in their candy bag.)

However, if pumpkin scents are your thing, they are offering a wide collection of bizarre pumpkin scented candles including some very specific food scents (Pumpkin Caramel Latte, Pumpkin Cupcake, Pumpkin Pecan Waffles), two Halloweenie scents (Pumpkin Carving, Pumpkin Hayride), and some fruity blends (the odoriferous Blueberry Pumpkin and the really smooth Pumpkin Apple). Plus they have a cool porcelain owl to shove your candle inside and make your guests wonder where that waffle stench is coming from.
