As the days get shorter and the weather starts to cool, we can see that summer is coming to an end. We tend to take better care of ourselves in the summer(maybe because we bare more skin in the summer); with pedicures, waxing, facials and maybe even full body exfoliation - all this grooming makes you feel good about yourself and puts that extra pep in your step - so why stop?
This is about indulging in your sense of smell - it's more important than you think.

If you want your hair to smell and feel phenomenal without any heaviness we have found the perfect product for you, Cake Satin Sugar Revitalizing Hair Shampoo and Satin Sugar Replenishing Hair Conditioner(pictured right). Without any parabens, phthalates, GMO, petrochemicals and tricolsan, Cake Beauty has created a shampoo and conditioner that smells absolutely delicious and by the time you're done with it, so will you!

Cake might not be your thing - so we found some fruitiness too. Fruits create a sense of well being with a feeling of energy. Fruits and Passion's Quenching Butter is enriched with shea butter and grapeseed oil. It hydrates and softens thirsty skin for a fresh, toned feeling, absorbs quickly and leaves skin lightly scented. Not only will you smell great, you'll feel revitalized as well.

Your sense of smell is tied closely to human memory - so why not be remembered. There are many scents to suit many individuals. I found two fragrances which I fell in love with. Lola by Marc Jacobs embodies a modern free spirit with an irresistible attitude. This warm floral bouquet has a hint of fruitiness, a smidge of smooth vanilla and a touch of creamy musk - the end result is playfully alluring yet irresistibly tempting. If this is too light for you, try Hot Water by Davidoff. It is fresh, spicy and jubilant. With vibrant red basil, grounded wormwood, burning pimento and Bezoin Siam, this fragrance embraces sensuality that's raw and corporal.

Scents are alluring, no doubt. But if your goal is to re-center yourself and reconnect to our beauty, here's an easy solution - Morocco's traditional ingredients in Tradition de Hammam from Yves Rocher. With a purifying clay mask, nourishing argan balm or oriental massage elixir; your bound to find something that centers your soul. Their beauty products are nothing short of Moroccan gold. But patience is a virtue - these products aren't out until 2010. If you feel that you need some Tradition de Hammam, they do offer spa treatments available as of November 2009.

Indulgence is about taking care of yourself on the outside so you feel better on the inside. Some may call it superficial but if it adds that bounce to your walk then it's all worth it.
