beauty scoop | wen by chaz dean fall apple spice treatment oil

All right, everyone, October’s over. Clear out your pumpkin ‘ish and find a new fruit to obsess over.

May I suggest apples?

OK, you know I love pumpkin and am fine with them all fall long. But if you’re ready to move on to a new fall scent, Wen by Chaz Dean has a new collection of Fall Apple Spice that you may go gaga for.

{Wen sent me a sample of its Wen by Chaz Dean Fall Apple Spice Treatment Oil to review. It retails for $20 for one ounce or $45 for a 4-ounce dropper bottle.}

The Wen by Chaz Dean Fall Apple Spice Treatment Oil is a fragrant blend of warming oils — think clove, cinnamon and ginger — and the scent lingers all day, making this treatment oil (which can be used as a hair oil or body oil — I used it as a body oil) double as a perfume.

Take a look at what’s inside Wen by Chaz Dean Fall Apple Spice Treatment Oil:

jojoba seed oil, sesame seed oil, abyssinian seed oil, coco-caprylate/caprate, organic argan oil, apple spice fragrance blend, apple fruit extract, vanilla bean fruit extract, clove leaf oil, cinnamon oil, ginger root oil, orange oil, tocopherol

The only questionable ingredient here is the “apple spice fragrance blend,” which is a proprietary, synthetic blend (I asked the company to verify). I’m guessing this is what keeps the scent around all day! It does make me a nervous, as this is the ever-popular “fragrance” that could mean anything … le sigh.

If you’re easily disturbed by deep scents, this may not be the body oil for you. Like I said, it lasts all day — by 4 p.m. on a typical workday, the scent is going strong!

I like the scent, but have realized I need to go easy on it when slapping it on as a body oil (I usually slather body oil all over my legs, chest and arms). It can be a bit overwhelming. It’s definitely not one I reach for on a daily basis. I need to be in a mood for this.

That said, this is not on my repurchase list.

If apple spice appeals to you, order your share by November 30! This limited edition scent will be gone after that.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts. At first I was intrigued and thought this might be something I’d try (I love the smell of apples and fall spice!) but I, too, am leery of the “fragrance” term on lists of ingredients. My skin is too sensitive to risk it; I almost always react to synthetic fragrances. Bummer!

      You’re welcome! I know, kinda a bummer, indeed. I like the smell, but it gets to be a bit much and I’m sad about the synthetic fragrance aspect of it!
