Autumn Picks: Body, Fragrance & Home Edition


 *Apologies about how late the second post of my Autumn series is!*
I much prefer Autumn/Winter scents because I like quite warm, sweet fragrances which just seem a bit sickly in the warmer months. Here are a few of my Autumn picks for body care and fragrance. There aren't many products mentioned in this post but hopefully you find something you like among them!

OH MY. You actually can't always get the brazil nut stuff in store (such as at this time of year) but they have it online so I don't even know anymore. I used to work at The Body Shop and the brazil nut range would only come back during sales but I don't know what the dealio is now. Anyway, I find the brazil nut range really comforting so it's lovely during the colder months. I really wish I'd gotten the EDT in store when I had the chance. I just don't understand why it's limited edition because it's just the nicest smell ever and everyone seems to love it?
*SORRY THIS ISN'T IN THE PHOTO- I LEAVE IT AT WORK*

Nothing new, I think most people have tried this or heard of it at least. It's definitely a sweet perfume so if you like perfumes with caramel and vanilla notes then it will be for you but if you hate sweet perfumes then this is a no-go. Again, I just prefer sweeter scents when it's cold.

I would also say Soap & Glory The Breakfast Scrub but I don't have that at the moment. The Soap & Glory one is definitely sweeter (it smells of freakin' MAPLE SYRUP) but I feel like fig is a great scent for Fall. It also makes sense that I should mention the body soufflé with the same scent which is lovely too.


ZARA Woman Perfume 

I actually can't find this anywhere online but they always have the perfumes by the till in store. This is the one with the Milan address on it- I think that there is another one that looks similar but yellow with maybe a Paris address? Don't quote me on that. I don't know if you can see in the picture but there's a cool silver glitter mixed in with the perfume. I've never noticed it on me but it just looks pretty in the bottle. Anyway, it's a typical 'Annie' perfume because it smells like warm, delicious vanilla.



I got this from Anthropologie because I love anything vanilla scented and I also love fig scents so the combination is heavenly. I also like packaging, me and my mom noticed that a lot of the candle packaging in Anthropologie was actually pretty revolting which totally just puts you off the candle even if it smells amazing. Just a tip for any candle companies out there - it's basically a homeware item so it should be pretty!

  5. I love Prada Candy, bought it in the Boots sale last Christmas and it always reminds me of the colder months. I like wearing just a spray as I find it quite strong!

    1. I'm all about the strong! I can never smell things on myself so I probably go a bit overboard.
