Pumpkin spice is not a flavor, it’s a lifestyle. Its mantra is the crackle of fallen leaves and bonfires. “Sweater weather” is its holy creed. The pumpkin spice life, like its coffee, is sweet, and you are always #thankful for your #blessings. It was never really about that particular blend of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, ginger and allspice, but how it makes us feel: warm, nostalgic, loved.
"I Used Every Pumpkin Spice Product I Could Find for a Week. Now My Armpits Smell Like Nutmeg." is from the September 13, 2017 Lifestyle section of The Washington Post. It was written by Maura Judkis and narrated by Jenny Hoops.
