Pumpkin spice is one of the scents that’s become synonymous with autumn over the years. It’s easy to see why: It simply smells like home comfort. From candles and deodorant to makeup and body wash, pumpkin spice shows up in a variety of unconventional forms. And that’s not even getting into the assortment of coffee-related drinks. Yes, the cinnamon-nutmeg flavors have totally taken over in recent years, and 2023 is no exception. PSLs returned to Starbucks on August 24 and it’s only the beginning of the rush. Even before the latte drop, plenty of pumpkin-inspired goodies began popping up on physical and digital shelves.
If pumpkin spice lattes aren’t your thing, not to worry! There are other ways to enjoy the trend without a sip of caffeine. And if you just can’t get enough of that warm fall scent, you’ve got tons of options to bring it home in other forms. We’ve rounded up 10 of our favorite PSL-inspired products from skincare to ice cream that will help to boost your autumn mood long before the leaves start to fall.
