Fall and holiday entertaining season is here, which means we all have to spiff up our bathrooms to get ready for all the guests. And in addition to scented candles, one of the best and most effective ways to do so is also one of the most affordable: just add a luxury hand soap or hand wash to the counter.

which hand soaps and washes have the best spicy luxurious smell of autumn?

Autumn seems to be an underrated season for at-home entertaining. Being sandwiched between summer backyard barbecues and winter holiday parties – we get it, people need a break. But for those who love to host, the fall is a sensory rich season that satisfies all the attributes of a great house party. Warm and savory foods hearten the spirit. Glowing color palettes feel intimate and convivial. And the aromas of the season – spicy, woodsy, and sweet remind us of joyful memories.
