fall date night in a bottle!

I am a HUGE fan of Skylar! I’m a member of Skylar’s scent club & I just received their monthly scent on Friday: By Firelight.

SO I wanted to start a new monthly series: I’ll feature the scent of the month with my personal thoughts on them!

One thing I really love about the Scent Club is that I find it really “sets the mood” scent-wise to the month. So as I created my November aesthetic, scents are absolutely part of it! The power of scent is a STRONG one & one I always remember “moments” by.

For November, Skylar released “By Firelight”, a rich, honeyed, spicy scent reminiscent of cozy holiday nights. Scent notes include: honey, amber, pine, vetiver, & I even get a hint of fluffy marshmallows. It’s a very warm & sensual scent.

Honey is the first note I get on this and I like wearing this for a “night” fragrance. This is what I would wear for a dinner date at Campannina on Union Street, dining al fresco under the twinkle lights & heat lamps – I feel like intimate moments like that is what this scent was just made for.

Even though it’s called “By Firelight” & there is a pine note, I wouldn’t say it’s a “fire” or smoky scent – it’s more of a “curled by the fire with a cider” scent, if that makes sense. It’s spicy, but in a “baking spices” spice.

It layers well with my favourite Skylar scent: Isle. I also love pairing it with October & September’s scent outlined here. As far as application, I roll it inside my wrists, in my neck crevice, & ankles {my fav perfume tip! scent rises!}

If you enjoy gourmand, honeyed, warm scents, you will love By Firelight! check it out here.

I’m a huge fan of Skylar since they are a clean beauty brand both you & I can trust. All skylar products are non-toxic, hypoallergenic, vegan/cruelty-free, & do not containparabens or phthalates.

Since they are clean / non-toxic, I don’t have to worry about any of my scents being irritating to Erik or my cat, Lucy! This is also huge if you are a mother – you can have peace of mind knowing your perfume is safe for children.

Another rad thing about Skylar’s Scent Club, they are donating a portion of proceeds to the Movemeant Foundation, empowering women through physical movement. I LOVE supporting brands that give back. It also speaks volumes of Skylar’s integrity since they are also a small business!

As we are getting closer to the holidays, Skylar is the perfect gift! In fact, I included them on my gift guide last year & fully stand by it this year.

If you’re looking for a no-fuss and stress-free gift, give the gift of Scent Club! the scents are delivered straight to their door. Not to mention, it’s a monthly gift so it’s the gift that keeps on giving & no extra charges 🙂

Again, I love Scent Club. I’ve been a member since June, beginning with their Golden Glow scent {outlined here}. It’s so fun to pair the month with a scent and my friends are always asking what scent I’m wearing! It’s a fun interactive gift so they can try too… plus I love a good aesthetic, so in a sense I’m gifting a bit of a vibe.
