Confession: I Love Beauty Products that Leave Me Smelling Like a Cupcake

Lately, I've been absolutely obsessed with Whoopie! Shea Butter Cream by Farmhouse Fresh, $30. It smells like the most delicious wedding cake you've ever tasted, and I instantly get happy when I take a whiff. In fact, I'm SO passionate about this product, I just bought three jars -- one for home, one for office, and one for my purse. I'm never too far from my Whoopie! fix.

Is it a little weird to want to smell like a baked good? Maybe -- but I just can't help myself. This got me to thinking and researching: What other beauty products smell as delicious as this one does?

Here are some other tasty smelling products I discovered:

Too Faced Chocolate-Scented Bronzing Powder, $28

Farmhouse Fresh Strawberry Smash Double Moisturizer, $23

Besame Cosmetics Gingerbread-Scented Mascara, $16

Demeter Fragrance Library Pumpkin Pie Cologne Spray, $20

Philosophy Red Velvet Cake 3-in-1 Bath and Shower Gel, $16

But here are a few tips to keep in mind when using sweet-smelling products:

Tip 1: Less is more. Don't overpower yourself with the scent or you run the risk of smelling like a supermarket bakery.

Tip 2: Don't mix too many scents. One scented product equals good. Three competing scents equals vomit inducing scent (well, that's a tad dramatic, but you get the idea).

What are your favorite sweet-smelling products or do you loathe smelling like food? Comment below.

    I love food scented beauty/bath products too! Right now I'm obsessed with Dragons Egg bath bombs from Lush (they smell like flowers and Fruit Loops in the best possible way) and Giovanni's Hot Chocolate Sugar Scrub (smells like brownie batter). And my boyfriend loves home fragrance that smells like food too (cupcake, apple pie, vanilla).
