I am not sure if the formulation has changed since they moved from the old plastic bottles (which I have never tried) into the new glass bottle (which is what I am reviewing), but I really like this scent a lot. AND I am NOT ordinarily a vanilla scent person, bc typically to my sense of smell those are !) sickly artificially sweet - that plastic cheap candle smelly (ok odd description I know!). But I found this one to be a very pure vanilla bean, Madagascar infused type scent. Basically I feel this is a true vanilla. Another thing I really love about this vanilla is that it's a wonderful scent to mix - I purchased a lot of other fruity summer scents from TBS with this and adding/mixing a spritz of vanilla to them really adds an extra element.

I find this to definitely be worth the price ($14), and I have no problem paying more for a glass bottle (I don't have to worry abt product breakdown and obviously its better environmentally speaking). I have two "cons" but they are very general and may just be specific to my own preferences: 1) I don't like that the top is non-removable, meaning I can't transfer some of this into a smaller bottle for travel or purse, and 2) the staying power is surprisingly low/short given its initial strong scent upon application. To be fair though I only purchased the body spray of this, not all accompanying products for layering (body wash, lotion or cream, perfume spray) so maybe that's the reason. Regardless, I really do like this scent and product for summer.

This review is for the body mist in a glass bottle.

This smells just like alcohol. Alcohol with a hint of vanilla. I am so disappointed, and I just do not understand all the positive reviews. I absolutely loved the original body spray, in the plastic bottle. I stocked up on it before it was discontinued (sadly, I have used it all...).

I have tried and tried with the "new" vanilla body mist. And it just continues to smell like alcohol, I even felt/imagined a burning sensation where I had sprayed it on my arm.

Alas, my quest to find the perfect (and affordable) vanilla goes on.

This is one of my favourite body mists ever! It has the most beautiful and sweet scent of vanilla. It's a great feminine fragrance. It's a bummer that it isn't super long lasting! Though, the lovely scent makes it worth buying. And it's not like it doesn't last at all, it actually lasts longer than many of my body sprays, but I'd like it to last longer :)

Review for the body mist in glass bottle.
My absolute favorite vanilla scent.
The body shop is where I first discovered how much I love vanilla. I remember when they used to have the scented oils near the entrance to the shop and I couldn't get enough of their vanilla scent.
This body mist is by far my favorite vanilla. It reminds me of straight vanilla used for baking but a bit stronger. I wish the staying power was stronger the scent wears off fairly quickly.

Good product, amazing scent Too bad it isn't long lasting on the body at all! :( Also for the price, I'd expect some quality that exceeds a great scent.

Vanilla is one of my favourite scents and I especially like it in skincare and body products. I wasn't entirely sure about buyin a body spray though, but I received this as a gift for Christmas and have been using it on occasion ever since.

I do like it - the scent is nice, sweet and not overpowering. But it doesn't stay for long at all, which you might maybe expect from a body mist like this. So I while I like it, I won't be re-purchasing this after I go through my bottle.

Overall: not bad, but I don't like the scent enough for a repurchase in my "normal life".

A little too much powder mixed with "Warm Vanilla Sugar" for my ultimate love. But I'm backpacking in India, I love my vanilla, and beggars can't be choosers...which means I was dying to find a decent “vanilla perfume” and this certainly does the trick as it *very much* beats the typical backpacker or street smell here...so I probably like this scent more *now*, than I would back home, in the States.

Anyway, I bought 2 of these little things on a 50% off sale and will gladly use them up, but once I'm back to my normal life, I would not repurchase...I have other HG vanillas (that I horribly miss!). Lasting power is pretty good on my skin, especially for a body spray: I can smell it almost 6 hours later—but again, I'm in a place where this smells very different from the other “scents” around me. Here in Udaipur, India, these retail for 675-775 rupees, or about $11-13 for 100 mL or 3.3 fl oz, which puts them at around the same price as the US. Since I snagged them during a 50% off sale, making them about $5.50 a piece, I feel they were well worth it to me. I'd love the heavy feeling glass bottle and simple design if I were at home, but for travel, obviously, glass is not a first choice.

[Review for the new version with glass bottle]. This body spray when first spritzed is a bit heavy, but when it melts on my skin it becomes an addicting buttery toffee vanilla smell. The vanilla I always wanted. I even prefer it over the EDT, which turns a bit more sandalwood on my skin. Lasting power is not great, unless it is sprayed many times over the same spot. I love it on my neck and when I layer it with itsself I catch whiffs of it many hours later. The only con is that I go through the bottle very fast, and I prefer plastic bottles for body mists.

This is also for the new glass bottle version of this. I never tried it before, so I don't know if the old version smelled the same or not.

I love vanilla, so I thought I would love this. I do not like it at all. In fact, I threw it in the garbage. I think it smells far too powdery, and also has some strange floral scent mixed in that I don't like at all.

Also had no staying power whatsoever, but in this case, that was good, as I hated it very much.
