It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Everyone loves fall but is it all about the witches or the marshmallows? Or is it the crisp air that really lights your (bon)fire? Whatever you love most about the season, there's a fragrance to fit your fall mood!

Your favorite thing about fall is pumpkins and apples and marshmallows and candy. Your dream fall fragrance would magically combine all of those things and you would spend your day huffing your wrist, enjoying all the sweets with none of the guilt.

Notes: a pastry shop filled with sugar cookies, pumpkin pie, apple tarts, homemade marshmallows, and sticky toffee pudding 

Is choosing between apples and pumpkins a Sophie’s choice kind of situation for you? This is your dream scent -- all the fall fruits and all the fall pastries in one delicious fragrance.

Notes: floral Pacific Rose apples, luscious yellow cake, warming spices, a delicate drizzle of caramel 

Apples and caramel are a fall classic, and here they’re balanced by warm fall spices for a fragrance that’s “the best parts of autumn in a bottle” according to one Poesie customer. If you’re an apple fiend, definitely don’t miss out!

You’re here for the boos. As soon as Labor Day is over, you’re breaking out the black boots and decorating your place with witches and bats and things that go bump in the night. Haha, just kidding. We know you are totally into that stuff all year. Why wait for fall?

Notes: the ingredients for a love spell -  yellow apple, clove, apricot, black pepper, vetiver, anise, cauldron smoke

Imagine a cozy cottage deep in the forest where an old witch is taking down dried herbs, spices, and fruits from her cupboard to put together in a big black cauldron. More Hocus Pocus than Blair Witch.

Notes: the narcotic sweetness of opium blended with the blackest amber, spilled coffee, a hint of bitter green cannabis

Full of forbidden things, decadent, dark and herbal. If you want to smell dark and mysterious, powerful and a little naughty, this is the scent for you, whether you’re a witch or a warlock.

Your favorite thing about autumn is the crisp air and the splash of red and gold leaves against a blue sky. You look forward to wearing boots and cozy cardigans but you don’t want to smell like a pumpkin pie.

Notes: pungent wild rosemary and fresh balsam pine, crystal clear lakewater, dry, dark vanilla

A dry dark vanilla note is uplifted by piney rosemary, making it feel fresh and round without being overwhelmingly sweet. Imagine yourself at the beach with the chill air and no one around for miles.

Notes: wild-crafted pinyon pine oil, aromatic sagebrush, hot sand & desert winds, bone musk

Although it’s not specifically a fall scent, the resinous and spicy aspects make it a beautiful scent for cool weather. Perfect for nature lovers of all genders, and especially those who appreciate the elegance of a bare tree branch or a falling leaf.

Fall is perfect for snuggling, for wrapping yourself in cozy knits, and for settling in with a long book. You love the romance and sensual pleasure of the season, the pumpkins and apples and swirl of dried leaves in the air.

Notes: a voluptuous blend of dark fig preserves and lush, velvety red rose tinged with exotic spice, sultry resins. musk mallow, and vanilla bean

A full-on, rich rose infused with rich spices and resins. Think lush velvet, a waft of incense, and sticky fig preserves. If you like your fall florals dark and dramatic, this is the perfect one for you.

Notes:  innocent pink roses, marshmallow buttercream, pale white musk, antique mahogany

The polar opposite of Young Romantics, Tiny Phantom is a rose that embraces the sweet marshmallow of the season. The aforementioned phantom is a friendly ghost and this is a sweet, innocent rose but the white musk and mahogany keep it from becoming cloying. A fan favorite!
