New Better Homes & Gardens / Scentsationals

Just noticed a post from Scentsationals on Facebook stating that new spring scents will be available in the next few weeks, including . . .

From Scentsationals:
  • Coffee Cake Swirl
  • Raspberry Fizz
  • Tropical Fiesta
  • Illusion
And from Better Homes & Gardens:
  • White Suede Driftwood
  • Sun-kissed Tulips
  • Blackberry Limeade
  • Tropical Pina Colada
Woohoo!  I will definitely be checking for these whenever I'm at Walmart.

*** UPDATE (Feb. 16) ***
I did see some of these new ones at my Walmart this morning. They were in the process of totally redoing and restocking the whole candle/tart aisle so they might have added even more after I left the area. They had a large end display with a big red 'Clearance' sign, mainly the last remains of the holiday scents. I do not know how much those cost now, didn't bother to check. But over in the regular tarts section I did see Grapefruit Melon Sage, which is not in the above list but I don't remember seeing this one before. From the list I saw . . .
  • White Suede Driftwood - smelled interesting, sort of woody cologney mixed but kind of soft, possibly a very faint smoky note.
  • Tropical Pina Colada - typical coconut, tropical smell.
  • Raspberry Fizz - *very* effervescent with a fruity background
  • Tropical Fiesta - listed passionfruit and guava on the label, reminded me of mango
  • Illusion - label said something about cedar, musk, "and mystery."  Surprisingly light scent, I didn't get much from it, maybe something sort of cologne-ish.
I did not buy any of these yet because none really grabbed my attention, and I really want to try those new Febreze tarts from my other post instead.


  1. Those all sound good! After my wax ban, I also want to pick up some of these.

    1. I wonder what Illusion will be, and I wonder if these will be at my store. I still haven't seen the White Birch one, or anything new lately. Boo!


  2. Blackberry limeade sounds fantastic!

  3. I can't wait until my Wal-Mart gets the new ones in stock. I'm dying to try the Coffee Cake one!

  4. I saw some of these news in my store today. I've update the post above with some comments on the scents.


  5. Didn't see the feebreze tarts but I did see all of the scentsationals and better homes

  6. I'm so upset my absolute favorite is grapefruitmelon sage but I cannot find it in any local walmart within an hour.I paid two dollars and on amazon they want ridiculous anyone know where to find this scent thanks

    1. I don't think I've ever seen that one around here, but I'll keep my eyes open. Is it an older one?
