Smoke has slithered its way into the latest lifestyle product trend; from cosmetics to cocktails and confections, smoke is white hot. To fully embrace this trend, we’ve uncovered a whole range of crave-worthy products (plus one delectable recipe) to bring a little smoke to your side of town this fall.

  Ice Cream

A new level of flavor past sweet, salty (and umami), smoke adds a sophistication to ice cream. We’re especially intrigued with this recipe for Smoked Muscavado Sugar Vanilla Ice Cream where the unique flavor comes by way of smoke-infused heavy cream.

Cosmetics

The long-awaited next chapter in the NAKED franchise that brought Urban Decay’s brand back to the big time, the NAKED Smoky palette has arrived. Just in time for fall 2015, the $54 kit is packed with a dozen seductive shades for the ever-popular smoky eye.

Whiskey

Smoke and whiskey are longtime bedfellows. We recently discovered a brand out of Nashville, Tennessee, Corsair Distillery, that’s elevating the coupling to a higher level. The appropriately named Triple Smoke has a robust flavor that comes from premium malted barley triple-smoked with cherry wood, peat and beechwood. The five-time award winner’s packaging reminds us of Reservoir Dogs.

A shadier side of green, almost Craftsman-eque, comes in the form of Farrow & Ball’s Green Smoke. A sophisticated way to embrace the color of pine with this smoky product trend before you bring the real deal indoors later this year.

Timepieces

Flashback brand Fossil has taken a big leap forward, recently, with their watch and accessory designs. We have a weakness for oversized men’s chronographs and fell for the Breaker Smoke Stainless Steel watch. The band’s smoke color lands somewhere between stainless and gunmetal, and feels totally fresh for fall.

P.S. Because we love to talk about whiskey and our favorite culinary-inspired beauty trends.
