I Want to Smell Like a Marshmallow

But not like marshmallows. You know? More like the “ooh, you smell so good, what are you wearing” kind of way.

Let’s look at some gourmand fragrances that give off that vibe. Fall is here, let’s celebrate! Smell like a marshmallow! (Fun fact, I do not like eating marshmallows. But all of these, save one, have something more to them and that lets me forgive the fact that they remind me of the worst of confections.)

Let’s just smell delicious.

I Want to Smell Like a Marshmallow.

Eau Duelle, Diptyque

Eau Duelle, Diptyque

To be fair, I don’t get marshmallow from this, but a lot of people do. What I do get is vanilla, and that is what gets us there. But there’s also a greenness and some spice, making this my favorite of the bunch.

1 Marshmallow

MARSHMALLOW LEVEL: 1/5

Were you making s’mores? Because I get campfire vibes more than fireplace vibes. Either way, this one is a lot at first, coming on strong, but it fades into a gentle warmth that reminds me of the softer Whispers in the Library.

2 Marshmallows

MARSHMALLOW LEVEL: 2/5


Marshmallow, Demeter

Marshmallow, Demeter

Leave it to Demeter to make something that smells exactly as you would expect. Sometimes you can judge a book by its cover, or in this case a scent by its name.

5 Marshmallows

MARSHMALLOW LEVEL: 5/5


Baccarat Rouge 540, Maison Francis Kurkdjian

Baccarat Rouge 540, Maison Francis Kurkdjian

This is beautiful. This is popular. People absolutely love it! I was talking about it on Instagram and I said it smells like burnt sugar, so there you go. It’s just not what I prefer, but it could very well be the one for you.

Cloud, Ariana Grande

Or try Ariana Grande’s Cloud for 1/6 the price. Very similar.

3 Marshmallows

MARSHMALLOW LEVEL: 3/5


Yes I Do, Etat Libre D'Orange

Yes I Do, Etat Libre D’Orange

Wear this to a spring wedding, bride or guest. (Wait, now that I type that, am I being led because of the name? Because the copy on the site is very Lolita, not bridal.)

Soft, lily of the valley with an underlying sweetness.

1 Marshmallow

MARSHMALLOW LEVEL: 1/5


This was a very fun post to make. Honorable mention to Bath & Body Works’ Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte which is far too sweet for me, but something I would have loved when I was younger.

p.s. If you’re going to smell like a marshmallow, might as well be sitting in something equally fluffy. I suggest the Bacio Cream Boucle Lounge Chair from CB2, or perhaps Jonathan Adler’s Ether Cloud Settee.
