Good Question: The Great Pumpkin

From A SheFinds Reader: I am looking for body spray, lotion or perfume that has a pumpkin scent. Do you know where can I find them? thank you very much.


The Answer: As I sit here burning my pumpkin pie scented Yankee Candle (honestly, I am), I’m reminded why we, like Charlie Brown, hold yearly vigils searching for the Great Pumpkin (scent). We love this fruit (or is it a vegetable?) in part because it has a warm, inviting and one-of-a-kind fragrance. We covet the few short months pumpkins are in season and turn them into delectable pies and delicious-smelling body products. In some ways, it’s too bad fresh pumpkins aren’t around all year long. But, then again, their short season makes them even more special. When mixed with the requisite sugar and spice, pumpkins have what I like to call a “memory fragrance.” The second you smell it you think of home, family and great holidays from years gone by. Not to mention, pumpkin contains enzymes that act as a natural skin exfoliant. Sephora takes advantage of these skin revitalizing properties in its Indulgences – Great Pumpkin Mask. As does Bath and Body Works with its Pure Simplicity Pumpkin Body Butter. Demeter, famous for its offbeat scents, makes its own version of Pumpkin Pie body spray. And, Philosophy’s newest shampoo-conditioner-body wash combination, also Pumpkin Pie, is heaven in a bottle. Find pumpkin scented bath and body products at sephora and bathandbodyworks.com.
