Why you might want to smell like pie…


Fall is officially here so its time to check out all the seasonal bath and body products. These “pie” scented perfume oils from Demeter are the perfect way to enjoy fall treats without wasting calories. New to the collection this year is Lemon Meringue, which is not traditionally a fall scent, but it is regularly devoured on holidays.

Lemon Meringue is my favorite of the three, it smells exactly like the sweet treat and suspiciously like one of the Strawberry Shortcake dolls (children of the 80’s take note). Apple Pie is sweet and comforting with a refreshing crisp apple top note. Pumpkin Pie is spicy and sweet and according to studies by  the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago increases the arousal level in men by 40 percent.

I like to buy fragrances but if I bought full size bottles of everything I own, I would have bursting cabinets full of expired perfume.  So, when I discover a new fragrance, I buy the rollerball. Demeter has a rollerball in almost every one of their 300 scents.

Demeter Lemon Meringue Roll On Perfume Oil – new for 2014.

The perfume oil roll-ons are just $10 each. It is also available in a cologne spray, home fragrance, body lotion and shower gel (yum). Pick them up wherever Demeter products are sold or at Demeterfragrance.com.



Kate Spade Twirl is an edgy floral

The holidays are behind us and Valentine’s Day is in the near future. A classic Valentine’s Day gift is fragrance. Kate Spade New York recently released Twirl, an edgy floral fragrance. With top notes of watermelon, blackberry and red currant, it at first seems soft. The middle notes are orange blossom, star jasmine, tiare flower and magnolia, followed by musk and macaron, strong  end notes that make you think, where did that come from? The fragrance is not too strong and reminds me a bit of a sweet and sour combination. This scent great for a women of any age or lifestyle.
It is available in an Eau de Parfum, body cream, body lotion, shower gel and in a rollerball, $18 – $80.00. Rollerballs are great for your handbag, or to keep in a large fragrance wardrobe. You can find Twirl at Nordstrom and Nordstrom.com.
