I know it may be sacrilege to some, but I can’t lie: I kind of hate pumpkin. I don’t enjoy the way it tastes and I don’t find the smell enticing at all.
So what’s a girl to when she wants to create some fall ambiance in her home without resorting to pumpkin spice anything? Bath & Body Works to the rescue! Their Leaves scent is quintessential fall without having any pumpkin notes whatsoever. Instead, this fragrance has hints of Crisp Red Apple, Golden Nectar and Warm Clove Spice that are reminiscent of all things autumn.
There was a slight chill in the air this weekend here in NYC, which inspired me to give this unusual candle a try and I’m so happy I did. It gently perfumed my whole apartment with a fall aroma that wasn’t too sweet for my boyfriend, but also not too masculine for me. Win win, right?!
Whether you’re like me and not the biggest fan of pumpkin or just need a break, this is the candle to splurge on this season. I’ve been burning mine for three days straight and it’s divine!
