September has always symbolized a fresh start for me, I always liked back-to-school shopping, and the change of the seasons. I've been done with school for awhile, but I still get that happy feeling when I walk into a store, and they are selling school supplies. September is also the month of my birthday, which gets me excited as well.
I've never been a huge fan of summer, because I do not like the heat. We have had a pretty strange summer here in Vancouver, with the temps going up as high as 34 C in the past week. We may get a couple more 30 C days this week as well, which just plain sucks, IMO! I can't wait until it is sweater weather as far as the eye can see.
I am loving me some fall shopping. Bath and Body Works definitely knows what it is doing when it comes to the Fall/Winter scents. I grabbed some goodies in a recent sale, and you can bet, they were all fall-scented!
I grabbed three soaps, Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte, Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, and Crisp Morning Air (which is already in use, and thus not in the photo.) I really wanted Autumn Spiced Strawberry but they did not have that in my store yet; it sounds very intriguing! I also got four scent portables, which I have multiple uses for. I stuck a Sweater Weather scent portable under my desk at work, as it helps to create a soft fragrance to the room with out being overwhelming. I also will likely put one in my car, and above the bathroom mirror. The scents I got are Cinnamon Caramel Swirl, Pumpkin Apple, Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte, and Sweater Weather. I grabbed two shower gels in Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte, and Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin. Lastly, I picked up a hand cream in Golden Autumn Day.
Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte is a very sweet smell, and I love it. I have had the body spray in this fragrance in my desk at work since last fall, and use it pretty much daily. Golden Autumn Day is the perfect introductory fall scent, as it mixed citrusy notes, and the smell of autmn leaves. The citrus scent helps to transition from summer to fall.
What fall scents do you have an eye on? Bring on the chilly temps, and the sweaters!!!
