Fall is in the air, and nowhere is that more true than at Trader Joe’s. The grocery chain is famous for its seasonal products, and luckily for us, they are already popping up in stores. I went to my nearest TJ’s this weekend and got a good look for myself at all the autumnal items for home and body (we’ll leave the ghost-shaped tortilla chips and fall harvest salsa reviews to Kitchn). Here’s what I spotted, and—more importantly—what I bought.

A note that my Trader Joe’s is—literally!—the smallest one in the world, so yours might have a wider selection of products.

Foaming Apple Cider Hand Soap

While the big orange gourd might rule the season, one of my favorite scents is apple, and by extension, apple cider. My under-sink cabinet is currently fully stocked with hand soap, but I was still tempted.

Cinnamon Whisk

I had never heard of a cinnamon whisk before, but it’s essentially a small broom that’s scented with cinnamon oil. It’s meant for decoration (and fragrance) only, so please don’t actually use it to whisk anything.

Cinnamon Broom

Same concept as the whisk, but larger. Probably not effective as a cleaning tool.

Honeycrisp Apple and Vanilla Pumpkin Candles

If my small apartment wasn’t already overflowing with candles from my epic fall candle roundup (coming this week!), I would’ve bought both of these. I clearly love a fall-scented candle, and these would make great host gifts for any travel you have coming up.

Honeycrisp Apple Mini Scented Diffuser

For those who like scents without the flame, this diffuser will make your space smell like an orchard.

Ginger Ultra Moisturizing Hand Cream

Ginger, in my opinion, is an underrated fall scent. And according to the review from Kitchn on the unscented version, this product will save your dry winter hands.

Pumpkin Body Butter

Moving on to the items I purchased. The first one was this pumpkin body butter. It’s a super thick concoction of shea butter, coconut oil, and pumpkin seed oil that smells more like the squash than its spice, which I’m into. I like to apply liberally at night and let it sink in while I’m sleeping.

Pumpkin Spice Biocellulose Face Mask

I’m a sheet mask evangelist, and I already love TJ’s hydrating version, so I happily scooped up a couple of these seasonal options. If you’re expecting to smell like a latte, you’ll be disappointed, but I liked the subtle scent of clove and orange, and my skin felt soft and moisturized after.
