The Best Fall Scent You’ll Ever Find: Demeter Apple Pie

Apple pie is a classic treat in the crisp Fall weather, and the smell of a yummy pie fresh from the oven is one of the best of the season. What if you could get that delicious scent in seconds, with no oven or baking supplies required? Well good news – you can!

Demeter Fragrance Library is known for incredible singular scents ranging from classic to crazy, and they have the most amazing Apple Pie fragrance ever. I recently posted about some yummy summer scents from Demeter, which you can read about here, but I am now officially into Fall fragrances.

Apple Pie smells like a perfect blend of pastry, fresh apples, and spices. I wasn’t sure how well this dessert would translate into a spray, but this one captures it exactly. I can smell the delicious combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, apples, and sugar, and I really can notice each ingredient on it’s own. It comes together in a warm sweet scent that isn’t too strong or overpowering. I was worried it would just smell like apples or have a hint of cinnamon, but if you closed your eyes and spritzed it you would think there was a pie in the oven.

There’s nothing subtle about this scent and I am sure it will be a hit when my boyfriend smells it. It’s yummy, sugary, but not too sweet, and has the perfect hit of crisp green apple. It’s hard to explain fragrances but I kid you not, the Apple Pie scent from Demeter is the most realistic and mouthwatering scent. You can read more about it or order it online here at demeterfragrance.com.

I can’t stop spritzing this, it’s so good!

Bring Back The Scent of Summer With These Delicious Demeter Fragrances

It’s three weeks into September and I am still day dreaming of a warm beach and iced coffee. I don’t think I’ve accepted Fall yet, and to combat my denial I have been turning to some sweet summer scents that almost make me believe I’m actually at a beach.
Demeter Fragrances: Vanilla Ice Cream, Pistachio Ice Cream, Orange Blossom & Mojito

In case you aren’t familiar with the Demeter Fragrance Library, it is a huge collection of crazy amazing scents. Some of them are strictly crazy (for example Glue and Sawdust) but most of them are downright delicious! You can check out all of the scents here.
To bring back the scent of summer I’ve been spritzing these yummy scents:

Pistachio Ice Cream, a blend of sweet and nutty scents that combines in the most delicious, and mouth-watering, way. It doesn’t smell like the plain nut but it totally smells like the ice cream. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this scent since it is such an odd concept, but it really works!
Vanilla Ice Cream, a warm, sweet scent that will evoke visions of ice cream shops and sprinkles. This is almost a classic vanilla fragrance but there’s a little extra something special.
Orange Blossom, another bright scent that brings out a fruity light fragrance. This is like any classic orange scent but just a hint sweeter and less citrus-like.
Mojito, a fresh and bright combination of citrus and mint that smells as good as the drink. If you want something light and refreshing this will hit the spot perfectly. The lime isn’t too overwhelming and it balances nicely with the mint. Not too sweet or fruity.

These scents have been helping me get through the start of Fall, but pretty soon I will be ready for some yummy seasonal fragrances like Pumpkin Pie and Candy Cane Truffle. Demeter has a huge array of delicious and unique scents so you’re sure to find one to fit every mood, season, and personality!

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream

I’m already a huge fan of Marc Jacobs Dot and Marc Jacobs Honey, and of course Marc Jacobs Daisy, so when I heard about the new scent, Daisy Dream, I got really excited!

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream is a bright floral and fruity scent that is super feminine and delicate. It isn’t too strong and it has some really great notes within the scent. Below is the description of Daisy Dream.

The fruity-floral fragrance has a light and airy touch, bursting with top notes of blackberry, grapefruit, and pear. The heart notes are introduced with a bouquet of jasmine, lychee, and blue wisteria, and a medley of white woods, musks, and coconut water reveal the base notes. 

I can definitely detect the grapefruit and pear top notes and the jasmine heart notes. The white woods, musks, and coconut water base note leaves a lasting scent that is gentle and pleasing. I continually asked my boyfriend for his opinion on this scent throughout the day and he genuinely liked it. He even notice the difference from when I originally sprayed it to a few hours later when it had dried down a little.

Overall this is such a lovely and girly scent that I will be reaching for again and again. It’s soft for summer but I can see myself wearing it in the Fall to bring back some light summer memories and wake up in the colder weather.

Sweet Summer Scents

Can you believe there is only one more month of summer left? It flew by so fast and pretty soon we’ll be pulling out boots and Fall jeans. If you’re like me and you want to keep summer going as long as possible, here are three sweet scents that can help you get into the summer mood anytime of the year. 

The Body Shop Summer Scents

The Body Shop Summer Scents

The Body Shop Satsuma Body Mist: This light mist has the most delicious scent of bright, fresh, orange flavour. It’s sweet and refreshing and pretty much smells like a mimosa. This scent wakes up your senses and makes you feel like summer will never end!

The Body Shop Coconut Eau de Toilette: This one is a bit stronger but it smells like a relaxing beach vacation. Coconut is a very summer-y scent so whenever you need to feel like you’re laying on the sand with a Pina Colada in hand, this is the scent to take you there. 

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Mist: This scent has a sweet strawberry scent that smells like a fruity drink. The strawberry scent is a more natural scent, not artificial like some beauty or body products. 

All three of these scents smell amazing and are totally affordable ($15 tops!) but if you’re looking for a different fragrance you can check out the whole line of yummy scents at thebodyshop.ca and find the perfect one for you.   

The Body Shop Brazil Nut Body Butter, Eau de Toilette, and Beautifying Oil

I’m Going Nuts for The Body Shop Brazil Nut Products

Brazil Nut is one the The Body Shop’s best selling scent lines, and until recently I had never even tried it. As of lately though I am totally addicted to the sweet Brazil Nut scent, and I am becoming obsessed with some of the products.

The Body Shop Brazil Nut Body Butter, Eau de Toilette, and Beautifying Oil

The Body Shop is known worldwide for the amazing body butters that it sells, and the Brazil Nut Body Butter is one of the top selling products at The Body Shop. Body butters are really moisturizing, long-lasting, and very creamy. This is pretty much the only body lotion I ever use, and I rotate scents through some of my favourite ones. Right now Brazil Nut has stolen my heart with it’s sweet sugary smell. It reminds me of something baking or some sort of breakfast food like french toast or a brown sugar pastry.

Along with the deliciously scented body butter, I have been reaching for the Brazil Nut Eau de Toilette  as well. It’s a yummy fragrance that lasts me throughout the day. I find it a fair bit stronger than the scent of the body butter so I do spray it a little further away from my body than a normal perfume, but the long-lasting scent is still there by the end of the day.

Now let me tell you about the third Brazil Nut product that is at the top of my list right now. The Body Shop Brazil Nut Beautifying Oil is my new favourite body product. I cannot believe I have gotten through this many years of my life not knowing about it. I am beyond obsessed with this product and if you haven’t tried it out yet you are seriously missing out. As I mentioned, I’ve only used body butter or some type of cream or lotion all my life until I found this.

This body oil is super light, thin, and not really oily at all. I worried it would be thick, sticky, or greasy but it was none of those at all. It goes on so lightly and smoothly – a little goes a long way. I love the scent of Brazil Nut in this product because it isn’t too strong or too sweet. It smells so warm an delicious and it makes it such an enjoyable product to use. You can even use the body oil on your hair as well, although I haven’t tried that yet.

The Brazil Body Butter retails for $20, the Brazil Nut Eau de Toilette is $15, and the Brazil Nut Beautifying Oil sells for $15 as well. These products can all be found on thebodyshop.ca and there is usually some sort of sale going on online.
