Fall is upon us, this means it is time to store our sweet florals, fruity florals, coconut perfumes, and citrus based scents. With cooler weather comes the time for warm bases with woody notes, vanilla notes and amber. The fall is the perfect time to wear warm florals, woods, gourmands, and smoky scents. Love this time of year!
This is the time of year when we can wear heavier perfumes and get away with it. I love a good woody floral or vanilla based scent which is not too sweet during the autumn months. Classic perfumes such as Chanel no. 5 and Bond no. 9 Nuits de Noho are also ideal this time of year. I’m wearing Nuits de Noho as we speak! Love!
So, without further ado, here are my favorite fragrances for the fall season, curated into the scrolling widget below. Which one is your favorite?
Summer is here, which means warmer weather and a new fragrance to enjoy. Love that!
When temperature soar, it is a good idea to lighten up your perfume. If you wear something heavy, it may not, shall we say, perspire well? Yes, we will put it that way.
The summer months are a great time to explore floral fragrances, vanilla scents, and of course, coconut! There is something about coconut and vanilla together which evokes a summer vibe. Love that! My favorite summer fragrance is this Vanilla Coconut scent from Lavanila. I love the vacation vibes it gives out.
Plagued by bugs when it heats up? Me too! I am dying to try this new, limited-edition scent from diptyque which promises to be a fruity floral and a citronella candle on your skin. I’m in! I am purchasing it and will give you a review soon! So, stay tuned. . .
Of course, classic Chanel no. 5 is always appropriate and anything fun and fruity works perfectly in the heat. What are some of your favorite summer scents?

Thanks for stopping by, and stay tuned for my upcoming review!
Despite the fact that is technically still fall, I have already started my winter beauty routine. The fall season here in the San Francisco Bay Area is half summer, and half winter. We don’t really have an in-between. This means my summer beauty routine continues until the cold front hits in November; and we are here!
My skin takes a beating during the winter season, not from sun exposure, but from the dry, indoor climate. The furnace in my house, combined with heaters everywhere I go, are really good at drying out the air. This leaves the skin on my face and body desperately thirsty. In order to ensure I don’t become a prune during the winter season, I need to make sure I am using the right skin care products.
For my face, I have been using Revive’s neck cream since I was twenty-eight years old. You read that right! It has kept my neck in a perfect state; and I won’t use anything else on it! I have fallen in love Elemis’s face cream. It gives my face the perfect amount of moisture and balance. For my eyes, Revive has a fabulous eye cream which does wonders for reducing fine lines, and adding just the perfect amount of moisture. Colleen Rothchild’s retinal serum is perfect for keeping my skin balanced and youthful.
When it comes to my body, my skin is ghostly white and dries out easily. Thank goodness for Aveda hand cream and LaVanila body butter! They keep my body from drying and flaking off like snow! As for the white part, have you tried new Tan-Luxe? O-M-G! It is a gift from God! These fabulous drops add just the right amount of tan to my legs. They also have a version for the face which is perfect for adding some sun-kissed color back to my cheeks. Love it and can’t live without it!
Hair also takes a beating during the cold winter months. The heater dries out my hair like crazy! In addition to my hair, it dries out my scalp; which is super annoying! To combat dry scalp, I use Aveda Pramasana scalp cleanser which gets all that extra yuck off my scalp, leaving it squeaky clean; and not dry! Shampure shampoo and conditioner by Aveda are great for keeping my hair clean during the winter months. It keeps my hair from getting greasy without drying my scalp or ends. Love it!
Now you might be wondering why I included Chanel’s fall nail polish and Bobbi Brown’s lipstick in a skin care slash hair post. Well, I can’t leave home without wearing these two beauty products, so I just thought I would throw them into my seasonal skin care post. I hope you don’t mind. 🙂 This lipstick is great since it holds color well throughout the day without drying out the lips. I’m addicted to it! And. . .well. . .Chanel needs no explanation 😉
