Best Bath and Body Works Scents for Fall and Winter

Updated on April 26, 2016

The Weather's Getting Cooler

Fall used to be one of my favorite seasons. The air would get crisper, but not frigid. The leaves would turn all sorts of beautiful colors - not just green, which is also a beautiful color, but there's not much variance to it.

Unfortunately, fall doesn't look much like it used to. The temperatures go from summer hot to winter cold, with no middle ground. And I remember one year - I think it was 2007, the year I got married - when the leaves didn't even really change color at all.

Nevertheless, we still call fall "fall," and there are some Bath and Body fragrances that I prefer to wear in fall and winter, when the weather starts to get colder. The scents in this list just say, "cooler weather wear" to me, and maybe you will agree.

So if you know a woman who has a birthday or some other special day in the fall or winter, you might just want to consider buying one of these to celebrate.

Dark Kiss

I bought a few different Bath and Body Works fragrances last fall. This was one of them.

I was pregnant then and wanted a scent that would make me feel feminine and sexy. If you’ve ever been pregnant before, you know what I’m talking about.

This scent is fruity and floral and strong - not at all like the fragrances I usually wear. I like it because the scent blast fades away to a quieter, lingering musky tease. Sweet and innocent, this is not. If it wasn’t for the quick fade, I probably wouldn’t like this fragrance at all. I like my scents less intrusive.

This scent could also work well in the summer. I think it would warm up pretty nicely. I just don’t see it as very springlike, though. As its name implies, it’s much too dark for that.

Midnight Pomegranate

This is my all-time favorite Bath and Body Works scent, mainly because this was the fragrance I chose for my wedding day. My husband and I both really liked it when I tried it on in the store.

I will wear this scent any time during the year, but I think of it mainly as a fall/winter fragrance because my wedding was in October, and that’s the first time I ever tried wearing this. Like Dark Kiss, this is fruity and sexy, but it’s much, much lighter - a better fit to my fragrance personality.

I hope Bath and Body Works doesn’t ever decide to discontinue this fragrance. I have a good stash of it saved up, though, just in case. I buy several bottles whenever I can. I don’t want to run out of my wedding scent!

Orange Sapphire Body Lotion

This is another one I bought during my recent fall Bath and Body Works shopping spree. It’s a relatively new scent. I’d never tried it before, and I was interested to see what it would be like. I have my favorites, obviously, but I’m always up for trying something new, too.

I am a citrus scent lover, so I was initially very excited about this scent. It turned out to be quite different than I thought it would be. It just wasn’t as citrusy as I thought it would be, given that the first word in the name is a citrus fruit.

Maybe it was the amber I didn't like. I’ve never really been a fan of the amber scents. But I do have to say that something about this fragrance kept me using it. It is another great light scent, and I really like the body lotion version. All the Bath and Body Works lotions are wonderful. They’re so thick and creamy, and the moisture lasts all day.

If you’re looking for something really orangey, this is not the scent for you. But if you are just looking for a great light floral/fruity scent, you might want to give this one a try.

Warm Vanilla Sugar Body Lotion

This classic Bath and Body Works fragrance has been a favorite of mine ever since I started using it in the 90s. It is basically unchanged from its early days, and I am so glad. It's near perfect the way it is!

The fragrance is just right. It's not too strong, and - like many of my other favorite scents - a hint of it will stay on my skin well into the evening. I put this on in the morning after I shower, and I can still smell it when I go to bed at night.

I should mention that this scent works much better in lotion form than it does in any other form. I'm not a big fan of the shower gel or body spray versions. It just smells different, for some reason.

I hope Bath and Body Works doesn't ever decide to discontinue this scent, like they have some of my other favorites from the 90s. I know I'll continue to buy it as long as they make it!

A Little Something to Get You Started

So, that's my list of favorite Bath and Body Works fragrances for the fall and winter. I hope I've given you some ideas to work with - either for yourself or for the special lady in your life.

      Susie: Hi. Thanks for reading and commenting. I've never been much of a lemon fan myself, but I can certainly see how it would appeal to others.

      Maralexa: Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it. :-)

      I always used to love fall, too - until it turned into one long, hot summer, followed by a cold, cold winter. Global warming, I guess. Yay!
