Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Lotion and Splash, late ’90s/early 2000s

The lotion looks like it’s from fall 1999, and the splash looks like it’s from a year or two later. I love seeing the two bottle styles side-by-side.

Anonymous said: Did Juniper Breeze ever come as a shampoo and conditioner? I can swear I remember my sister giving me a travel sized giftbag with body wash, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion when I was in middle school.

Yes! I’m not sure when you were in middle school, but back in the mid-’90s, BBW came out with a line of shampoos and conditioners in select fragrances. Juniper Breeze was one of them. (I had Sun-Ripened Raspberry.)

Also, BBW used to supply travel-sized shampoos, conditioners, lotions, shower gels, and other body products to certain hotels. These were specially-made for hotels and NOT sold in stores. When I worked at BBW I had customers asking for them, and I had no idea what they were talking about at the time. The giftbag you speak of may have been from a hotel, or even just a giftset bought in the store.

White Barn Candle Co. Country Caramel Fall Candle, early 2000s

My favorite season is just around the corner! I love everything about fall - the dry, cooler weather, the leaves changing color, hot apple cider, pumpkins, and of course BBW’s fall products and fragrances! To celebrate, I created an Autumn Pinterest board that features both old and new fall BBW products and beautiful fall images. Check it out! I’ll be adding to it throughout the season.

Bath & Body Works Holiday Apron, 1990s

I haven’t seen this one before! I’m not sure if this was worn by employees or sold to customers during the holidays. I’m going to guess the latter, since I don’t recall BBW employees wearing this. It was probably sold in their home stores along with their kitchen items. Neat find!

Raspberry Plum Lip Balm, mid-’90s

I had one just like this in high school! This totally takes me back to 1995, when I would put this on every day - even carrying it around with me at school. I can still taste and smell it today.

What do you guys think of BBW’s new artisanal fragrances? I’m heading to the store today to check them out. I love the concept and vintage-themed design. It’s like the old BBW but a bit more sophisticated. (In fact, they way they describe “artisan” in the second photo sounds a lot like how they were marketing their products in the ’90s.) Now if only we can convince the company to make ALL their products like this…
