Alas, the theme today is apple and I want to give her the full respect she deserved before all the pumpkin spice crazies (me!!) had her take a back seat.
I'm sharing the apple scents that I have been loving, and a quick nail of the day before a proper review of this gorgeous polish. I grabbed two new candles from Bath and Body Works last week including the one below, Leaves.
Leaves fragrance notes read: crisp red apple, golden nectar, and warm clove spice. It smells like a more mature version of apple cinnamon...without the gimmicky scent that some apple cinnamon candles have. I do smell clove as the spice that accompanies this. I am excited to see how this one performs! As you can see I have not tried it yet:
Next is my absolute favorite apple candle to date! This is by Everyday Luxe, a brand exclusively found in TJMaxx and Marshalls to my knowledge. I bought 2 of these candles last year and I am down to my last. The name of this is Farmer's Market, but when I went to find new ones this year the scent is labeled as Harvest (it definitely smells the same) and I didn't see a Farmer's Market to compare. I opted not to get this year's version because it smelled lighter so I'm hoping they will get a new batch in the coming weeks. I will edit this post on the definitive name because I know they are each different candles. If you're looking, for now go with the one that smells like cider.
They don't put fragrance notes on their candles, unfortunately. If I had to describe it FM/ Harvest (??) is a warm and delicious apple cider with notes of pear and nectar. It is very unique to anything in BBW right now and it's just heavenly! 10/10 recommend!
If you have seen Everyday Luxe anywhere else, please holla at ya girl!
Finally, what goes better with a romp in the apple orchard than wearing Sweaters and Denim in festive fall fashion? I bought Vapid Sweaters and Denim early this year and just now getting around to trying it. This is my first thermal polish and my fist Vapid polish. I am SO glad I grabbed it! This is 3 very easy coats and is also a 10/10 recommend!
The quick picture I snapped of Sweaters and Denim is in its transition state - part a denim indigo color and part peachy copper shimmer. It's still really warm here, so I have to play around a bit to get a cold shot. The sun was setting when I ran outside to grab these pics. I was out picking apples all day after all! :)
I hope you check out my other friends participating in this series.

Vapid will be having a restock and new fall polish release at the end of the month. I imagine Sweaters and Denim will make a return at some point too. What shades and scents are you loving this fall?
