There is little in this world that smells as good as a plate of just out of the oven cookies. But if you’re anything like me the smell of that plate doesn’t last long as you demolish the cookies one by one. That’s why I prefer to wear my cookie scents in the form of fragrance, they last so much longer — not to mention the lack of caloric intake. Carol’s Daughter Almond Cookie Body Collection smells just like the cookie it’s named for, with hints of almonds, vanilla and brown sugar. For the best fragrance experience start with the body wash in the shower and layer on one of the lotions immediately after bathing, seal the scent with Dry Oil Mist.

Bath-&-Body-Works-Sweet-Cinnamon-Pumpkin-Soap.jpgOkay, we know we already told you about our favorite products with the scents of the season. But we really just had to tell you about the marvelousness that is Bath & Body Works Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Gentle Foaming Hand Soap, too.

We love that this soap turns from liquid to deliciously thick foam the moment it’s pumped out of the bottle. We really can’t figure out how this miracle works, so of course, we keep pumping out more and more!

Oh, and let’s not forget the sweet scent. Pumpkin combines with brown sugar and cinnamon, while mango fruit extract works to cleanse and condition the skin. What a wonderful combination of fall scents at play here!

Bath & Body Works Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Gentle Foaming Hand Soap retails for $5.50 at
Well, the fact that the temperature has been steadily dropping over the past couple weeks can only mean one thing: fall is upon us. But we’re actually extremely excited, not only because we can start wearing our cozy sweaters but because we can break out products in all the most delicious scents of the season. Check out our favorites.

Not just for Thanksgiving anymore! We love the berries’ rich red hue and the sweet yet tart scent.

June Jacobs Spa Collection Cranberry Body Balm
Dry, ashy skin? Not with this nourishing lotion by your side. Shea butter, jojoba and sunflower oils and soy extract work to condition even the driest skin.
$50 at

The Body Shop Cranberry Joy Body Polish
Smooth out all the rough patches with this exfoliator. The scent is a bit on the fruitier side, so don’t overload.
$19 at

Lather Cranberry Sugar Rub
We can’t think of anything more blissful than rubbing this tub of cranberry goodness into our skin during a shower. It smells exactly like cranberry sauce.
$19 at

Pumpkin and Apple
Two of the scents that most identify with fall! We really want to go to a pumpkin patch and go apple picking now.

Slatkin & Co. Farmstand Apple Mini Candle
This candle seriously smells exactly like fresh-picked McIntosh apples. Really and truly.
$3.50 at

Lush Jacko Soak
Doesn’t this adorable soak just make you want to carve pumpkins now? We can’t guarantee that jack-o-lanterns are in your future, but this will definitely add some fuzzy goodness to your next bath.
$5.95 at

Bluewick Sweet Pumpkin Deco Cylinder
Luckily this candle has a burn time of up to 150 hours, because we’re planning on using it all fall (and winter) long.
$35 at

Vanilla and Brown Sugar
What would fall be without a little sweetness in the kitchen—or, in this case, in the product closet?

Method Orla Kiely Vanilla Chai Naturally Derived Hand Wash
We’re suckers for anything vanilla, and this almost cures our craving for Starbucks. Almost. Plus, we love the packaging.
$3.99 at

Fresh Brown Sugar Eau de Parfum
We love brown sugar, and the sweet yet not cloying scent of this fragrance. Plus, it’s better to wear it than to eat it! (At least by calorie counting’s standards.)

Emma Stone stepped out for Elle’s Women in Hollywood Tribute with a homerun of a look. Her fringe bangs and side layers framed her rosy-colorwashed cheeks perfectly, while her raspberry stained lips coordinated beautifully with her dress. Then there were her dramatic eyes, peeking out under her long bangs they were bright and blue under a thick line of dark eyeliner. Her look was bright and dramatic enough for the flashbulb frenzy that accompanies red carpet events. If you’re looking for something a little less flashy but just as fresh, you’re going to want to focus on your lips and not your eyes.
To achieve stained, yet soft, lip color you’ll want to check out a product like Smashbox’s Limitless Lip Stain and Color Seal Balm in Sangria or Petal. With a feather-resistant stain in marker form on one end, you’ll be able to easily apply the color and watch it sink into lips, creating color depth. Then you can use the lip balm at the other end to add a little moisture and softness back to lips to really set the look.

Fresh-Sugar-Kisses-Mini-Lip-Trio.jpgImagine my surprise and delight when the Fresh Sugar Kisses Mini Lip Trio arrived on my desk the other day. I am a huge fan of every Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment out there, so this collection of three minis? Perfection.

I love that the balm isn’t too waxy or sticky, and it keeps lips moisturized and conditioned for hours on end. Plus, each one is formulated with SPF 15, so you’re protecting your pout every time you step out the door!

But the best part about them? The colors, of course! This set includes Berry, Honey and Passion, each of which leave the prettiest hint of color upon the lip. I actually prefer these to lipgloss or lipstick most days!

The Fresh Sugar Kisses Mini Lip Trio retails for $28 at
