[Fragrance Picks] : Fall / Autumn Weather

10:17:00 PM

Before the fall season officially ended I would like to make a post about my fragrance picks for this sweater-weather season. I know we don't have autumn / fall season here in Indonesia but we do have rainy and windy season before the stormy season hits in November/December through February. So I guess we can call it our own version of autumn here ? Maybe we can call it "tropical autumn" ? (^o^)


Anyway, I have created this type of posts before (called "Fragrance Picks") and I got a few nice responses out of them so I thought I'll make a new one. For you who are not familiar with "Fragrance Picks" posts, it is one of my blog series where I share about scented products that I am currently using depending on the weather or occasions (such as Summer Fragrances, Valentine's day Fragrance Picks, etc).

I am one of those girl who likes to change their scents according to mood or weather (mostly weather). So when the weather changes I usually also change my perfume and all the scents in my house. And because I love scented products so I tend to buy and accumulate quite a lot of them in my vanity. So in this post I will share with you which scented products I picked out from my own vanity that I'm currently using in this tropical autumn season :)


And here are my picks :



Body Care Picks :
Bath & Body Works Peach Bellini Gentle Foaming Hand Soap
If you see this post then you'll know I'm kinda snob with hand soaps, LOL. That's only because I'm the type of person who washes their hands like 10 times a day. Yes, that's who I am, and there might be something wrong with me (but oh well ...). Anyway I regularly changed my hand soaps and currently I am using this BBW Peach Bellini Foaming Hand Soap which smells just like peach! It has fruity aroma which is perfect for this weather because it's not too sickeningly sweet and it's also not too heavy. Just perfect for the season!

The Body Shop Strawberry Beautifying Oil
I am in a mission to finish all my older products and this is one of them. I am currently using this as body moisturizer, especially right after shower when my body is still damp. Sometimes I don't get along well with some oil products but this dry oil from TBS is an exception. This dry oil doesn't leave sticky residue, it makes my skin glows and moist all night, and this one smells so goood it reminds me of indulging in something sugary sweet while enjoying the sound of pouring rain outside. I guess I am more inclined to fruity scents during this weather.

Cottage Caramel Gourmet Shower Gel
This is my choice for my current body wash. Well actually I'm using two body washes right now that I use alternatively (because I always need options). The other one is Floral Honey Sheer Magnolia Shower Gel which I forgot to include in the main picture above. Anyway this Cottage Caramel Gourmet Shower Gel really smells like the real caramel. It is sweet yet warm and inviting. Every time I use this I feel like I'm showering with real caramels... So warm and heavenly.


Additional :
Floral Honey Sheer Magnolia Shower Gel
I forgot to add this to the main picture but the other shower gel I use alternatively with the Cottage Caramel above is this newest addition to my abundant stock of body washes. This shower gel smells really really nice. Again, it's not too sweet and not too strong either, so it's perfect for fall and autumn. Anything too light, sweet, and girly would be more suitable for summer while anything stronger and really warm and woodsy would be more suitable for winter. This shower gel smells warm yet powdery sweet, with hints of warming honey and magnolias! So lovely for a bath too :)

Dewi Sri Spa Bali Pranaya Body Lotion
As mentioned above, I changed my body moisturizer to the The Body Shop Strawberry Dry Oil which I mostly use in the evening. But when I need a quick lotion to slather on my body in the morning I'd pick up this Bali Pranaya body lotion from Dewi Sri Spa, a premium local (Indonesian) brand that focuses on traditional beauty rituals packed in modern packaging. They uses centuries old traditional Javanese & Balinese princesses beauty recipes mainly concocted from herbs and natural plants. This body lotion is a mix of rice bran oil, lemon oil, and neroli oil, and it smells like one of those rich spa treatment that has the ability to reduce stress and calms the mind. When slathering it on my body I feel like I'm in a relaxing aromatherapy spa room. The scent is oh.so.nice with warm earthy fragrance that would relax our mind and soul. Just imagine having a relaxing spa when it's raining outside.




Candle Picks :
Twilight Cinnamon Candle
I always love burning candles around the house occasionally, and for the fall / autumn season I picked these three candles out of my candle collection. This Twilight Cinnamon candle comes in  a set of three tiny pots and if lit together it will create some kind of warm feeling all around. It doesn't give a strong scent-throw but the ambience that it brings when they're all lighted at the same time surely makes my rainy days feel warmer. (Reviewed Here)

Bath & Body Works Lakeside Sunrise Candle
This is one of my newest candle purchase and it smells soooo gooooodddd ... Perfect for autumn and cold windy season like right now. Sniffing it made me imagine of sitting beside a lake in a mountainous forest somewhere. A limited edition, this Lakeside Sunrise candle is a curious aroma of crisp waters, sunny rays of citrus and a touch of sweet apple dew. It sure reminds me of cool / water indeed, with hints of crisp apple. I think this is an "aromatic marine" or "aqua" types of scent? I don't know, I'm not sure. I rarely experienced an "aquatic marine" type of perfumes before, but I am in awed with how very interesting marine scent like this one is ! I think the other marine / aquatic perfume I ever smelled before is the Davidoff Cool Water, and I like that one too :)

Bath & Body Works Leaves Candle
My last pick for Fall / Autumn candle is this one from BBW. This Leaves candle is one of their best-seller and it is one of my favorite too. The scent is very earth-y and leaf-y and forest-y (if you know what I mean). It is such a relaxing and warming scent for those windy cold days, and I keep it beside my bed so I can relax a little bit before sleep. This one has great scent-throw too.




Perfume Picks :
BCBG Max Azria Eau de Parfum
I have two perfume picks for this Fall / Autumn / Rainy season. One is the BCBG Max Azria perfume which is my choice of perfume for everyday / morning use. It has medium-light floral fruity aroma, with a hint of musk and sandalwood base. The overall scent is a feminine-sweet scent but not overly sweet nor is it too girly. Anything too sweet or too girly is better for hot summer days, me thinks (;p). The sweet-feminine scent of this perfume is just right in the middle between girly and elegant, and mixed with a powdery sensual base it is just right for this frigid weather. (Reviewed Here)

Juicy Couture Eau de Parfum
My second pick of perfume is this classic one from Juicy Couture which I use strictly for my evening outings. It has a delicate sweet floral scent with a little bit of powdery touch that feels sexy, refined, and tasteful. I love wearing it in the evening because it is not one of those sharp piercing scent that makes you heady, yet it is strong enough to be picked out by those around you but in a really nice way. I really love the floral fruity top notes of watermelon, mandarin, pink passion fruit, green leaves, water hyacinth, and marigold flowers. And I also love how the white floral scent slowly blended in towards more pleasing warm sensual scent by the end of the evening.


Well I guess for fall / autumn weather my picks tend to be more into fruity or spice-y scents such as caramel, cinnamon, honey, apple, peach, strawberry, etc. I also love the ones with warm base and a touch of powdery aroma that are not too girly-sweet or too provocative. For evening autumn scents I tend to pick out something warm with a little bit of sensual feel.
