Review of L'Artisan Fragrances Vanilia [DISCONTINUED] by DianeL
Love,love,love this fragrance. I can wear this any day even on those days when you feel you just can't handle much fragrance. L'Artisan Vanilia is a sophisticated and decidely different vanilla. This is a good fragrance for you girls that really are not fond of fragrances. It is one of those you can wear almost anytime and it's never overwhelming to you or others aroundyou. It is nothing like most vanillas which I find nauseatingly sweet.This one contains the vanilla bean, the flower from the vanilla(which is really an orchid) and amber. This is a very nice vanilla based fragrance whether you love vanilla fragrances or not. The amber softens the sweetness of the vanilla & brings some warmth & depth to it, and the flower makes it a very distinctive. This one is not quite as long lasting as most of the L'Artisans which surprised me, because normally vanilla lasts forever on me. I am more than happy to reapply this beauty late in the day. Also, this is a wonderful one to layer with others and it is by far the best vanilla available to my nose. It is nothing like the syrupy, sweet CSP's. If you can't take vanilla because of their sweetness, get a sample of this one, you may change your mind, it is not your normal vanilla. Michelle Pfeiffer wears this one and it is her favorite according to her interview in In Style Magazine. I would say she has excellant taste.
