5 Dreamy Scents That Smell Like Fall

September 9, 2021

Here in Seattle at Aera headquarters the leaves are just starting to change, and the evening air has a lovely crisp, coolness to it signaling the changing of the seasons. It won’t be long before the local farms open their pumpkin patches where we’ll all be searching for the perfect pumpkin to set on the front porch, hot spiced cider (or pumpkin spice latte) in hand.   

Fall is a season steeped in scent memories. From hayrides and apple orchards, to warm, bustling kitchens full of family and sweet smells of cookies and pies. We all have a scent story that is specific to this season, and there are many scents that can tell the story of fall. Whether you’re looking for a scent that can transport you to the pumpkin patch or the fireside, or a scent that can infuse the memories you make this fall with joy and coziness, we know you’ll love these 5 Aera fragrances that are perfect for celebrating the season.
