beauty & believing

fresh from the oven

we still can’t believe it’s already august. that means fall is right around the corner! we’re giving you a sneak peek of our fall collection with granny’s apple pie, a scent inspired by deliciously sweet apple pie made with ripe granny smith apples.

even though we’re in the heart of summer, there’s something about pie that makes us feel warm and cozy, like an overcast fall day when there’s nothing to do but cuddle up with a warm slice of yummy. enjoy!
