Fragrance Family: Spicy
Skylar Fall Cashmere Candle
Best Celebrity Scent
R&C The Fragrance Duo
If you like the feeling of being in a backyard just after the rain with a bonfire crackling in the distance, then you'll love Boy Smells Violet Ends ($98). You get all the floral and green of a garden with freshly cut grass but with a little smoky edge (from the smoked papyrus and tobacco leaves). We can only think of one word to describe the overall scent: yum.
Like sipping on a spiked hot cider, the Skylar Fall Cashmere Candle ($45) has a little sweetness (thanks to the roasted almond and cinnamon) and a little bite (from the spiced ginger). The longer you smell it, you'll notice it transforms into
a really mellow yet warm scent — and just like the name hints, it leaves you
feeling soft and cozy, just like wearing
a cashmere sweater on a cold night.
Even if you didn't know that
Russell Wilson and Ciara were behind R&C The Fragrance Duo ($90), then one look at the intertwined, magnetic bottles would tell you it was created by a real-life couple. Much like a relationship, these two very different fragrances (one floral, one spicy) complement each other and balance each other out. Wear one at a time, or layer them for a completely custom scent.

Henry Rose Torn Diffuser Oil
There's a reason vanilla is often
cited as a key note in some of our favorite scents. It's warm, sweet,
and comforting, like a batch of freshly baked cookies. Done wrong, it can
easily become saccharine, but done right and mixed with something to ground
it, like the smoky vetiver root in Henry Rose Torn Diffuser Oil ($28), and
it'll stop everyone in their tracks.

It's official: we're in the era of the celebrity beauty brand.
Next month, we're putting them all to the test to determine which
products actually live up to their A-list namesakes.
