get ready for fall with diptyque, bond no. 9, slatkin and co., philosophy, and philip b!

We both love the fall. The weather is perfect. The air is crisp and both our little ones started going to Toddler Adventure twice a week!

Life is good.

Our other favorite parts are the smells and scents that you associate with this time of year.

Never is it more timely, to smell pumpkin, chai spices, apples, leaves, caramel, woodsy notes, etc.

Here are some of our fun picks for home and body. This should at least get you started, if not excited for the season.

For the body:

Philip B Chai Latte Soul and Body Wash ($42) an enticing blend of Indian spices...including cardamom, cinnamon, ginger root, black pepper and nutmeg...combines with the natural humectant, honey and naturally exfoliating milk proteins to gently cleanse, exfoliate and replenish the skin. It's also infused with Black Tea to help tone and tighten the skin.

Philosophy Double Rich Hot Cocoa Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath
($16) Why? Well...a) it smells like hot chocolate b) you can use it and not gain one ounce and c) did we tell you that it smells like hot chocolate?

Bond No. 9 New York Lexington Ave ($135 for 50ml) literally the perfect fragrance for autumn and winter. It has notes of peony, orris, patchouli, sandalwood, cardamom, fennel, almonds, cumin, and even crème brulee. It's scent smells all-at-once mysterious and seductive.

Our hubbies went ga-ga over this...literally.

For the home:

Diptyque’s Feu de Bois Candle
($60) is the perfect substitution for a crackling fireplace. The earthy-but-refined candle is infused with a complex scent that is evocative of fir trees, firewood and autumn woodlands.

We figured out that it's the oh-so-chic packaging that gets us.

Slatkin and Co. Caramel Pumpkin ($13) combines whipped pumpkin puree, buttery caramel and a succulent seasonal fruit medley of ripe plum, crisp apple and juicy nectarine. The bonus is that it comes in this adorable ceramic pumpkin that can be used after the candle burns out.

The boxed candle Slatkin and Co. Boxed Candle - Leaves ($17) contains Autumnal notes of golden nectar, juicy mandarin and red delicious apple are paired with toasted cinnamon stick, mulled cider spices and freshly harvested red berries.

Totally loving the frosted glass and the fall images.
