It's almost over — the best (and spookiest) month of the year is drawing to a close. I don't know about you, but I'm already preparing for a bombardment of turkeys and holiday sale ads. And by preparing, I mean surrounding myself with as much Halloween spirit as I possibly can. Spooky Halloween-themed makeup? Check. Converting my daily wardrobe into a costume? Check. I've had The Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack playing on repeat, and a skeleton is hanging from my front door. But something is missing. I look like Halloween, but I smell like my usual body flowery body wash. This is a problem.
What does Halloween smell like? After trawling the internet, I've got answers. Brilliant minds out there have created Halloween-themed body care products. There are products for those that enjoy the season but don't have Thriller memorized, products for those who do have Thriller memorized, and products for those who are sitting under a giant stuffed bat, wearing black lipstick, and drinking out of an R.I.P. mug (that last one would be me.) So whether you're in need of silky smooth skin or total Halloween immersion, there's a product on this list for you!
