September is the start of the new season, which means a new wardrobe (hello boots, oh how we’ve missed you!) and slightly different make-up (we’ll be – albeit reluctantly – parting with our bronzing powder, in favour of a lighter complexion and rosy blush). Rather controversially, the new season also means for us, a new scent. While many women prefer to wear a signature scent, month in and month out, only switching up their smell every few years, at Roccabox we like to do a seasonal scent switch up, matching our fragrance to the mood of each season. So while summer was all about using body products fragranced with coconut, floral notes evocative of the Med and refreshing citrus, as we move in to Autumn we prefer heavier, muskier, and more importantly, sweeter scents. We basically want to smell like all the puddings, pies and sweet treats we plan on indulging in now it’s getting that bit colder (read: now that we can wear more clothes). So, here’s our edit of the delicious saccharine-scented products we will be layering, to create our new season scent:
This meringue-like whipped mousse (yum) transforms upon contact with the skin, in to an ultra-hydrating skin treat. Decadent and delicious, this clever little product from a cult Korean brand soothes winter-skin irritation and a combination of honey, milk protein, egg yolk extract and albumin work together to boost the skin’s natural ability to regenerate. So basically that means we smell amazing, while our skin becomes firmer and more supple.
This indulgent shower creme leaves skin soft, cleansed and smelling absolutely delish. A little bit like how we imagine it would be to shower in our favorite pudding, this limited edition shower gel is every bit as yummy, sweet, rich and creamy as a piece of vanilla pie but without the calories.
The body cream we always go back to, this indulgent, softly whipped cream, is a real treat. Pricey, but worth it, we favour the Almond/Coconut version during summer, but as Autumn rolls in, we love how this so-sweet-it’s-sickly scent lingers for days.
A warming delicious fragrance, which combines rum, milk, plum and amber, we like to layer this over our body products, to create a multi-layered scent that is scrumptious, modern and unique.
