This is my go-to fragrance. It's a lovely scent with a good balance of vanilla, musk and sandalwood. It lasts all day, doesn't cost all that much, and my husband and kids all say I smell yummy. Every once in awhile I'll go through a floral or coconut phase, but I always come back to this.
As others have noted, the initial blast of this is off-putting. I think it's a little heavy on the alcohol. So my way around this is to spray one spritz on myself 20 minutes before I leave for wherever I'm going, and by the time I get there I smell just wonderful. One spritz is all it takes. There's just the right mix of vanilla and sandalwood in this fragrance; I don't consider it especially musky, actually - I do like musk, but this is more sandalwood, at least on me. I love it and wish that some of my other, more expensive, fragrances would suit me half as well as this, but I take the small victories where I can get 'em. Five stars all the way.
It takes awhile before I can smell the vanilla. It smells good, but there is not enough vanilla for me.
Beautiful! ......really smells good in winter.
It's so cozy and warm. I have an older bottle I rediscovered a couple months ago. I assume the formula is around about the same.
If this works with your body chemistry what a lucky woman you are. So it's not 60$ an oz. I'm okay with that. It's such a comfortable fragrance! I have to say out of quite a few perfumes I own I feel like this cheapie works the best with my body chemistry. A little alluring, but classic in and of itself. Sweet but not overbearingly so. This vanilla and musk formula just work together. Creamy, classic, warm, inviting, a delicate spicy musk touch. I just love Coty's Vanilla Musk.
I used to use this a lot when I was younger, but it's never too late to review. Vanilla is a favorite to wear, it's class even in a cheap $2 spray. This was of course a bit more than that price-wise, and think it costs around $20 a bottle? Give or take. It comes with 1 oz. of product. It actually lasts a long time on your skin, and it mixes well with a lot of skin. A vanilla or warm scented lotion makes this last even longer on your skin. I always sprayed a few puffs out each time I used it. This vanilla isn't very bright and peppy. It's more feminine and seductive and sexy. This isn't child's traditional vanilla icecream. It smells like vanilla and sandalwood to me. Not sandalwood's biggest fan here, but I am for vanilla and this smells great! It has a slight metallic edge to it, but it's not a main key. Packaging is cute. The box is a nice cream color. The product itself is a translucent yellow in a clear bottle. I love the lid! The lid is a bronze color with designs in a deeper bronze. It looks like plants, but it could be random smudges. I have bought this product twice, which means I have repurchased. I used up the first bottle down to the last drop, but the second remains pretty much untouched. Maybe I just don't want to use it, but I think it's more along the lines of the fact that I'm not very high matenience and would feel more comfortable using one of those cheap Bath and Body Work's body spray or some equally cheap drugstore brand.
Vanilla, musk and Sandalwood should be very pleasing to me but this one has a sharp, synthetic note on me. The initial spray is almost bitter but the dry down is better. I do not get much sweetness. I think I would like it with more vanilla.
Smells pleasant, but too cheap and young. There's really nothing special about it.
Elegant, pretty, and unpretentious. Goes on sweet and slightly spicy. Would be suitable for just about any woman, any occasion. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is that it seems to lack depth and staying power. Still, a lovely fragrance.
I used to work at a perfume counter and smelled a lot of perfumes. I have to say that vanilla musk is one of my faves! I was in the drugstore one day and picked it up.I love vanilla but I was expecting to smell a super sweet or vanilla candle.I liked it and I thought it's 2.00 what have I got to loose. I am now on my third bottle! I love this! It's cheap, easy to find and smells amazing!
