Available at Sephora

Philosophy’s Haunted House ($30.00) is a three-piece set of three perfectly fall scents: Pumpkin Spice, Black Licorice, and Caramel Apple. I love, love, LOVE Philosophy’s shower gels (which also double as a shampoo and bubble bath). I prefer to use them as shower gels personally, but they definitely work well as a bubble bath, too! My favorite scent was Pumpkin Spice, because nothing reminds me of the descent into fall like pumpkin pie. (Funny enough, I just polished off a Pumpkin Spice Latte!) Caramel Apple is also a nice scent that’s sweet without being cloying or overwhelming. Like most shower gels, these scents won’t pervade the rest of your day. They’re fun to enjoy in the shower and fade away afterwards. If you love the scent, it’s a good idea to layer it with a body cream or lotion. Black Licorice isn’t my personal favorite scent (I can’t stand licorice, actually!), but it really does smell just like the candy–so if you’re into it, you’ll adore it. I love Philosophy’s shower gel formula because they lather up with little product and smell just like they’re named. These didn’t disappoint!

    YUM!! I love their pumpkin spice stuff. I had the Caramel Apple lipgloss in my hand at Sephora this weekend, but put it down to get Korres Pomegranate Lip Butter…kinda regret it, sigh.

    If only the licorice one wasn’t in there! I suppose I could buy the set and give the licorice one to my mom, she’s one of those rare people who actually loves black licorice.

    The only one I like from the set is the pumpkin -I can’t stand the other two. I think I’m a pumpkin fanatic right now.

    • Haha! I *think* you can buy everything separately, but I’m not sure. They have a zillion different scents available, so it’s hard to remember!

    I got myself a large sized licorice. LOVE. Even my SO is using it. Don’t worry about it being black, turns pure white the minute you foam it up.
