It’s fall, folks. That means three important things: the leaves are starting to change (if you live as far north as I do), the PSL is coming back, and, most importantly, Bath & Body Works is full of crisp, sweet and pumpkiny fall scents.
If you’re anything like me, you simultaneously have all the Bath & Body Works products you will ever need and still want more, especially when a new season comes around. Sure, I have a perfectly good bottle of Tiki Mango Mai Tai lotion that's more than half full, but what kind of a respectable person uses that in September?
To celebrate my favorite time of year, I went into the great BBW to smell the good smells and get (more) excited for fall. I managed to restrain myself and not buy the whole store, but I did have some products stand out to me. If you're looking to pamper yourself in a seasonally-appropriate way, check out my Bath & Body Works fall faves:
Golden Pear and Brown Sugar Body Wash
Golden Pear and Brown Sugar Body Wash via Bath & Body Works
When I’m buying candles or lotions, I want the most sugary mess I can get. I spent the summer burning the sadly unavailable online Cinnamon Spiced Vanilla, which is pretty close to Cinnamon Sugared Donut, if you're interested. But when it comes to body wash, I kind of feel gross about rubbing a marshmallow cupcake on my body to cleanse it.
Of all the body wash scents I smelled, Golden Pear and Brown Sugar is my favorite. Fruity but not overwhelmingly sweet, it’s the perfect clean scent for a body wash, and the matching lotion is, of course, divine. It’s not the most obviously fall of the scents being pushed right now, which makes it somewhat versatile.
Pumpkin Pecan Waffles
Pumpkin Pecan Waffles Candle via Bath & Body Works
Bath & Body seems to have put every variety of pumpkin candle they could dream up on the shelves this season. There’s everything from Pumpkin French Toast, which is quite decadent, to the bizarre Pumpkin Banana Muffin, which has a stronger banana scent than I'd usually want from a candle but is surprisingly pleasant (sadly, it’s not available online).
It’s hard to pick one, and I recommend everyone decide for themselves because there are so many options, but one that really stood out to me was the Pumpkin Pecan Waffles. It’s got the pumpkin that everyone’s looking for this time of year, but it has a wonderful nutty scent that changes things up.
Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte Ultra Shea Body Cream
Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte Body Cream via Bath & Body Works
This was my favorite item that I wound up walking out of the store with. While I don’t really get a lot of pumpkin or latte from this, I’m okay with that, because it’s got a great sugar scent that still feels like fall to me. I got in a convenient 2.5 oz size to carry in my purse when the fall air starts to dry out my hands. It’s got a great fall graphic and I just couldn’t leave without it!
