fall for this.
there are lots of reasons to love autumn: brightly colored leaves. crisp, cool weather. spiced lattes. cozy sweaters. but we love this season most because it gives us an excuse to showcase a few of our favorite fragrances, like pomegranate, mulled cider + redwood forest. we couldn’t pick just one—and neither should you.
like a walk in a lush redwood forest, this scent is what fairy tales are made of.
