I’ve already posted my Fall ’15 Fragrance Picks, but I’ve decided to expand on that theme with my scented bath and body product picks for autumn. These are bath, body and skincare products with scents that remind me of fall.
Providence Perfume Co. Hand Cream in Chai Cocoa – You guys, this entire natural scent range is perfect for fall. It’s a spicy chai and hot cocoa. It smells absolutely delicious. This hand cream is fast-absorbing, making it great for daily use. Retails for $24 at Providence Perfume Co. Full review of the range here.
Malle par Dries Van Notten Body Cream – I feel like such an ass recommending $185 body cream. But, geez, it’s so luxurious and smells so good. I didn’t have a good experience with the EDP but this cream is a sophisticated blend of vanilla and sandalwood. Like I tried the cream and can’t stop thinking about it. Available at Frederic Malle.
Rebel + Mercury Organic Body Oil in Vanilla & Cardamom – This is a nourishing natural oil blend scented with spicy cardamom and a boozy vanilla. Isn’t cardamom and vanilla one of the best flavor/olfactory combos? Use on the body or hair if you want to smell delicious. Retails for $40 at Rebel + Mercury.
Yes to Carrots Super Rich Body Butter – This rich, smooth cream has all sorts of harvest vegetables in it like sweet potatoes, carrots and pumpkins. The scent is a bright citrus with a hint of sweetness that isn’t overpowering and layers nicely under finer fragrances. Retails for about $10 at drugstore.com.
Clinique Aromatics Elixir Body Smoother – I know this is a love or hate it scent, but I love it. And it’s so “autumn” to me with its blend of roses, vetiver and patchouli. It reminds me of like a damp rose garden in late fall. Retails for $36 at Nordstrom. The body cream is awesome too. And this time of year you can often find value gift sets with the perfume and bath/body products.
Johnson’s Baby Honey Apple Body Wash – Apples and honey remind me of Rosh Hashanah. It’s such a fall pairing of delicate apple and sweet honey. Plus, it’s dirt cheap. Retails for like $4 at drugstore.com.There’s a body lotion that’s worth giving a try too.
NEST Pumpkin Chai Liquid Soap – I know there is a backlash to pumpkin things. I admit that I’m fed up with pumpkin everything. I saw pumpkin “chocolate” chips, pumpkin spice candy corns and pumpkin marshmallows. Why??? It is madness. However, I do like spicy scents this time of year. And if I’m going to for anything pumpkin spice, I’m going with NEST. Their pumpkin spice is truly the best because it’s not too sweet. It’s more spicy. This liquid soap retails for $22 at NEST. Here’s my review of the candle.
Tom Ford Shower Gel in Oud Wood – I’m all about fancy soaps and shower products. I know it is literally throwing money down the drain but I’m OK with that. Bathing with fancy stuff makes my boring day seem less boring. This is a smoky, woodsy synth oud scent that actually translates well as a shower gel. Retails for $65 at Nordstrom.
Prada Candy Exfoliating Scrub – I have no idea why I love the aroma of Prada Candy so much, but I do. It’s like benzoin caramel. This is one of those “splurges” but it smells good, the formula is great and the packaging feels luxurious. Retails for $75 at Nordstrom. Full review of the perfume here.
FarmHouse Fresh Splendid Dirt Mask in Pumpkin Mud – This is a clay and yogurt based mask that smells good enough to eat. But, don’t eat it. It has some aromatics in it that may not be good for sensitive faces; however, its’s a great mask for hands and feet. Retails for $20 at drugstore.com.
Burt’s Bees Carrot Nutritive Night Cream – This cream has always smelled really “fall” to me. It’s a really thick cream that is more for those that like heavier oils (AKA really dry skin). I like it but I know it’s not for everyone. In the past I’ve bought this as a hand cream just because I loved the aroma so much. Retails for about $13 at drugstore.com.
MyChelle Creamy Pumpkin Skin Cleanser – This is a coconut and veggie oil based creamy cleanser that smells like pumpkin pie. The texture is awesome, but it may irritate some complexions because it actually has spices in it. Retails for $18 at drugstore.com
Sara Happ Lib Scrub in Creme Brulee – With cooler weather, my lips need extra TLC. And this is the season that I want to wear darker lip shades. I have to take care of them. Yes, I can use a wash cloth but that’s not as glamorous as a lip scrub that smells like caramel and sugar, right? Retails for $24 at Beautyhabit.
Stewart & Claire Lip Balm in Autumn – Stewart & Claire already has the fall lip moisturizing base covered with this spicy, chai-like lip balm! Retails for $6 at Beautyhabit.
