AMAZING!! I love spraying this at any season! Sadly, I can't find it at any of my local body shop stores :( so I think it's discontinued. If I did find it, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
Does anybody else lose the nice initial vanilla smell after a few minutes? It starts off lovely then drys down to a horrible wood smell!
This scent is amazing.. my God, it's delicious. However, it dosen't last. At all. So back it goes. Even the lotion. So yummy! But lasts for maybe, 20 minutes. :(
This is a nice basic vanilla scent. Great for layering with other scents. Affordable too. My only complaint is the bottle. When I removed the cap, it pulled the spritzer off and left it lodged in the cap. I had to use tweezers to get it out. I was able to put the spritzer back on the bottle and I decided to just leave the cap off.
I would normally give this 4 stars but for the price, why not 5? I like about 20% of vanilla-heavy scents, the rest are too cloying. This is one vanilla I keep going back to. It is not that it isn't sweet and it certainly isn't complicated - so it's hard to explain why I keep it in my collection (this is my second bottle). It's simple and balanced. On me, it stays fairly close to the skin but not extremely so and it lasts fine but is not heavy. Works great in winter. I use it in tiny doses for layering sometimes in the summer.
This perfume has a straight up vanilla scent, that's all it is. no top notes, or base notes or anything just vanilla. Boring and overpowering if worn alone. BUT... i bought this for layering over other perfumes. I lovee sweet perfumes but i also love DKNY Delicious Night which is a total sex bomb perfume. Wayy too dark and rich to wear alone for me. so i put a tiny spritz of that and a mist of TBS vanilla and its the PERFECT balance.
Lasts all day too. Love this stuff for layering.
I absolutely love the vanilla scent from The Body Shop, it's the best scent ever! I get so many compliments when wearing the vanilla scent. I first got the body mist which I've been using almost daily since I first got it.
Now I decided to get the EDT and I definitely don't regret my purchase. Love it! The only downside is the bottle which in my opinion is a bit boring and dull to be honest. continued >>
I love gourmand type of scents so this fits perfectly with me. I actually got this from one of my best friends when we did a fragrance swap (it was 3/4 full at the time when I got it off her). This smells quite sweet and warm, but still has a slight sensual side to it as well. It is fairly strong I think, so I spray it sparingly otherwise I get a headache from it. Lasting power, not so great. Will finish what I have, but might not repurchase a bottle for myself.
I love this perfume! It is a very sweet vanilla, which some people won't like but I think it smells amazing. It is strong, but not an overpowering kind of strong, but strong enough that one spray on your neck (and possibly a wrist) will definitely be enough. When you first spray it, it actually does smell quite heavy and almost overpowering, however it smells gorgeous once it's on your skin. So if you smell it straight from the bottle and find it too strong, give it a try on your wrist anyway because in my opinion it smells nicer on skin than in the bottle. I don't wear this every day, probably about 2-3 times a week as I have a few perfumes I alternate between. It's not exactly cheap, but I wouldn't say it's expensive either as it is a good product. Overall, a lovely sweet smelling perfume, for a reasonable price, which I highly recommend.
I have the newest formulation, so I have no way to compare to the older formulation that people seem to like. This isn't bad, but it's not the best vanilla out there. It does have an slightly chemical quality, but not so much that it bothers me. I'll keep it around mostly for layering, but once this is gone, I'll be on the lookout for a new vanilla scent.
Edit: I notice an interesting note on the drydown, a sort of vanilla mixed with a bit of Love's Baby Soft.
