Posted by: John Ewoldt under Sample sales Updated: October 5, 2011 - 4:45 PM


Brace yourself before you head into the Thymes' annual warehouse sale starting Thursday, Oct. 6.


It's a heady mix of about 20 fragrances for bath, body and home that hits you 20 feet from the door, before you even set foot in the warehouse. Inside you'll find the following prices/items:


50 cents: small bars of soap

$1: 1 oz. sample sizes, candle glass (empty), silk bags and wood dowels

$2: 2 oz. sample sizes, envelopes of bath salts, bags of samples (25), single bar soaps (unboxed) and sink set holders

$3: 16 oz. milk bottles with diffuser sticks, single boxed soaps

$6: 2-bar soap sets in a box, body scrub, body wash, body oils, candles, cologne, diffuser refills, fragrance bottle oil, home fragrance mist, liquid foam bath, lotions, rock salts in a jar and shampoo/conditioner

$8: AHA creams

$15: gift sets and travel kits

$20: Diffusers


Scents include agave nectar, ambersweet, goldleaf, mandarin, lavender, azur, eucalyptus, verbena bamboo, tamacind lychee, red cherie, cocoa monoi, and filigre. Maybe it's just me, but scents at the Thymes seem to be getting stronger. For what it's worth, the only subtle fragrance that I smelled is filigre.  


The sale runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at 63 St. Anthony Parkway, Mpls, 55418.
