How to Smell Like a Pumpkin Spice Latte

Don’t just drink a PSL this Fall – smell like one, too! Combine three Demeter fragrances to create the perfect Pumpkin Spice Latte fragrance for Fall!

By now you know how much I absolutely love Demeter Fragrance Library!  I’ve had so much fun working with them over the past few months.  We’ve made jelly doughnuts together and we’ve even had fun with zodiac signs. Today, we’re partnering up again to show you how you can smell like your favorite Fall beverage!  That’s right. Don’t just sip on a Pumpkin Spice Latte this Fall – smell like one, too!

The PSL is set to be released again in early September.  So basically, between the end of this week and next week!  I can’t really think of a better way to celebrate the return pumpkin spice season than by wrapping yourself up in all of its glorious scent!  

When I pitched this idea to Demeter, I wasn’t entirely sure if I could make it happen.  Would combining the three scents that I chose really make me smell like the official drink of yoga pants and Ugg wearing girls everywhere?  I am happy to say that I actually pulled it off!  

So let’s talk about the actual PSL for a moment.  The drink begins with an espresso base made with pumpkin pie spice and a pumpkin flavored syrup.  Finally, it’s topped with whipped cream and more pumpkin pie spice.  So that’s how exactly I decided to layer these three fragrances!  The end result? An amazingly close PSL scent that is sure to become your favorite fragrance for Fall!


Coffee lovers, this fragrance alone could be your signature scent! Espresso smells just like it was freshly brewed and made with a little cream and sugar.  It’s not bitter at all and not too bold, either. It’s like having a coffee shop in a bottle!

Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin Pie is everything I imagined it to be and more!  This fragrance is the perfect scent for Fall and all through the Thanksgiving holiday!  It’s a nice, pumpkin base with notes of cinnamon, ginger, and other spices. Basically, I’m going to need a bigger bottle of this to last me at least until Christmas!

Graham Cracker

I have to admit that Graham Cracker didn’t do it for me when I wore it by itself.  But blended with Espresso and Pumpkin Pie, it’s perfection!  Espresso and Pumpkin Pie worn together are pretty close to the scent of a PSL. But the honey and vanilla that comes out in Graham Cracker pulls this PSL blend together to make the perfect Fall fragrance!

Now that we have the three fragrances we need to layer to make a PSL scent, let’s talk about how to wear them. It’s been fun playing around like a fragrance mixologist!  But I’ve found that two spritzes of Espresso, two spritzes of Pumpkin Pie, and one spritz of Graham Cracker makes a perfect PSL scent!

Head to Demeter’s website to purchase all three of these fragrances!  Before you hit “checkout,” make sure to look for monthly discounts on Demeter’s website. This month, you can score a free 1 oz. bottle of Watermelon Lollipop with your purchase of $30 or more!
