sneaky (holiday) scents

peppermint vanilla (aka) candy cane (aka) sugared mint holiday hand wash
The holidays are officially upon us! And since we're all great method advocates, one of the best and easiest ways to celebrate the season is buy stocking up on method's holiday hand wash and dish soap scents! This year has brought us gingerbread and mistletoe foaming hand wash, along with frosted fir and sugared mint gel hand wash! (Psst - they're out now at your local Target stores, and online! What?! You didn't know! Well, get with it! It's ho ho ho time, after all!)

That last scent caught my eye immediately. Sugared mint? A) Mmm, that could be divine! But wait, B) it could be a ruse. Whatever do you mean, Nathan? Well, I hate to say it, but last year method brought us candy cane. Another scent I had high hopes for, before discovering it was simply peppermint vanilla given a shiny new name. Odd, I thought. Peppermint vanilla sold well on it's own, why the need to get sneaky santa on us?

So this year, I had my reservations. And one whiff of sugared mint did indeed cause my heart to sink. It's peppermint vanilla all over again, except with another shimmery holiday name?! What gives? Apparently method's starting a trend here where peppermint vanilla will be released each holiday, except under a new name. I don't recall them renaming any other scents past or present in this manner, so I have to admit I'm at a loss...

What's your thoughts on this? Is it sneaky? Or simply fun?


And what are your thoughts on the new gingerbread and mistletoe scents? Let method lust know in the comments!


PS - the bottle shrinkwrap designs for the frosted fir dish soap and hand wash are ah-mazing, method! Whoever did this design work should get a holiday bonus, pronto! Stylish, streamlined and bright! Exactly what method is all about!

perfection in package design (well, IMHO.) The colors, the patterns... ahh!
