The advent of a vibrant fall brings crisp scents of cinnamon, hot cocoa, gingerbread, and everything that’s spicy and warm. A fall fragrance wardrobe typically means warm scents, but that doesn’t mean florals go out the window. And this season, hair care and home care welcome some new aroma profiles as well. Here are a few fragrances to get you into the mood:
Estee Lauder Modern Muse ($98)
The new Estee Lauder fragrance is a tribute to all things confident, powerful, individual, and feminine. The novel “dual impression” structure means it connects to women in two contrasting ways: one, through a sparkling Jasmine Accord with exotic mandarin, honeysuckle nectar, and jasmine sambac; and

PRODUCT: essence of BEAUTY Portables
Whether we are traveling, going to work, or running errands, beauty enthusiasts like myself love having makeup tools on hand for last minute touch ups. The Essence of BEAUTY Portables line makes always looking your best possible, even on-the-go. These grooming necessities come in conveniently small packaging, yet are durable and quality-made, so they work as well as full-size beauty tools.
As someone who is slightly messy, I always lose my makeup when I travel. So, I loved that the 6-piece Beauty Essentials Kit has everything I would need while traveling. It handily takes up minimal space and lets me leave my expensive tools at home (also freeing up more room for that extra-cute top). The line also includes a Kabuki Brush, 24 Count Non-Oily Makeup Remover Pads, and my favorite, the Portables Dual Sided Compact Mirror with Tweezers. I am constantly keeping my eyebrows shaped and nothing is more frustrating than being on vacation without my favorite pair of tweezers. Although I confess to being hesitant to try a tweezer barely the size of half my finger, the Portables mini-tweezer was as accurate and strong as a full-sized version. Fittingly, the line also has its own Portables Cosmetic Bag, the perfect way to store your Portables tools in any size purse.
At only $5 each, getting an essence of BEAUTY Portables brush, nail tool, or skin care accessory is a no-brainer, especially with their easy availability at any CVS or online. I love the idea of never having to remember to bring my makeup tools when I go out, because they can be permanently left in ALL my bags. I also adore how the sleek black packaging gives them a stylish vibe, not a cheap one. You may initially feel strange leaving your favorite tools at home, but you’ll soon forget them in favor of your Portables version.
