gel hand wash
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.
a juicy riddle wrapped in a ripe red enigma, the pomegranate is one exotic fruit we’d like to get to know better. one thing we do know is that as soon as we sniffed its fresh, clean, zing, we fell for this classic fall fragrance.
