Im on my second bottle of this stuff. It is amazing. It is what it says, VANILLA! It's just delish smelling. It stays on all day long. The bottle is very simple, the box it comes in is very pretty.

If the masculine black pepper and sandalwood in Estee Lauder Sensuous made you gag, then Lavanila Vanilla Spice is the perfect fragrance for you. It has all the sparkling semi-dry sweetness of Sensuous but a much gentler, more feminine blend of spices. Sniff them side by side in the bottle or on your skin, and you'll see exactly what I mean.
This is the perfect fragrance for an office, elevator, or other closed environment because it's so delicate. And as far as ginger scents go, this ranks a close second to my all-time favorite, Vanille Gingembre by Laurence Dumont.
I just wish this scent were easier to find and more affordable. My local Sephora carries it in a large bottle, but not the small roll-on.

Smells just like Serge Lutens Bois Vanille to me.....but as everyone mentioned it is weak. Would need to be layered. Would be great over Pure Vanilla. I think its lovely and alot cheaper the SL.....but SL is better quality of course.

I. Love. This. It's not a sophisticated, complex vanilla like my other fave, L'Artisan's, but as a simple, everyday, daytime scent, it's perfect for me. I find it to be a deep yet non-foody vanilla with a good dose of cardamom and nutmeg, which gives it the perfect bite. Absolutely lovely for winter. I also find that it stays close to the body, which I like in a daytime/work scent. (This is one of the few scents I find I can just spray on--normally I decant a bit into a rollerball bottle and apply that way so I don't knock anyone out with overspray or aggravate my allergies.) My only complaint is that the spray nozzle tends to twist when I'm applying it (I hope that makes sense), so sometimes a spritz goes off into the air instead of on me, but I can live with that. BTW, if you love this but find the staying power isn't great, try this: apply as usual, then rub some on your pulse points with a rollerball decant. It really ups the wear.

At first sniff I had to have but I waited until got the extra cash. It is warm, rich vanilla without being foodie. It's quite complex (compared to the others in this line) and you can defiantly smell the vanilla along with the spices. For me it is an easy vanilla fragrance to wear because it is not overpowering. It last just as long as other synthetic perfumes do. I may repurchase in the future if they come out with body butter.

I tested this at Sephora and was really disappointed. It's one of the fragrances they recommend if you like incense. I get no incense from this and not much spice either. It smells sweet and cake batter like to me. It also doesn't seem to have much staying power and I don't feel it's worth $50+ for such a weak scent.

This is not my favorite of the Lavanila scents. I can definitely smell the nutmeg and other spicy scent notes over the vanilla, which was disappointing because I expected this to be a creamy vanilla scent with a hint of spice to it. It's definitely a heavier fragrance than Pure Vanilla or Vanilla Grapefruit (those are the other fragrances I've tried from the Lavanila line). It's not bad to wear on a cold, wintry day (as I'm wearing it now), but this is not a fragrance I'll be reaching for often. I would repurchase Pure Vanilla anyday over this one.
Edited to add: I dropped my rating from two lippies to one. As I was wearing it, my DS told me I smelled like a pie. It must have been the overpowering nutmeg/spice note. Not quite what I was hoping to smell like...

There's a lot more spice than vanilla. The spices are a ho-hum cinnamon nutmeg blend. It is inoffensive and quickly forgettable.

I am a HUGE fan of their Vanilla Coconut line (and extremely excited to hear that they finally came out with the rollerball!!!), and I love vanilla in general so i thought this would be delightful. I pictured more of a chai-like scent. what it showed up on me as was just icky. i can't even describe it, but it was neither vanilla-y nor sweet. i love Lavanila's line in general, but i'm not sad to see this one go...

I really like this! I love spicey scents for Winter and this is exactly what I was looking for. I like that it's more natural than most perfumes so there is no headache or stomach upset with this one and I am pretty sensitive to most fragrance. It's not heavy or cloying in any way. This is not super complex or sophisticated but it is warm and softly spicy and it makes me feel good.
I've never tried this brand before but this one impressed me enough to get me to order the Vanilla Grapefruit.which I expect to love as well.

Definitely different than the other LAVANILA scents, this is a dark vanilla with a very spicy bite. I love spices like cardamon and nutmeg, so for me it is a winner. I love mixing this with my Pure Vanilla for something even more creamy. Vanilla spice feels like a warm fire vs. the soft cuddle blanket I associate with Pure Vanilla. This is a more grown up scent than the others, and I am very partial to the sandal wood undertones it possesses.I like this complex woodsy scent because it combines so nicely with the vanilla base; a very special and unique combination for noses that like something really different. I LOVE the gold box, and because sephora told me it is limited edition and will be gone after holiday, I bought two. My only complaint? There is no body butter for this limited edition scent.

I don't know why I was so excited to try this because in truth, I have only liked one of the LAVANILA Fragrances (Pure Vanilla) and haven't been impressed with any the rest of them. I plunked down my credit card nonetheless and awaited my order which arrived today. There is some common strain in all of LAVANILA"s scents which always seems to give me a headache for some reason (it may be the patchouli undertones perhaps).
The real disappointment for me is that I smell almost no vanilla here. Instead I get a burst of intense, undistinguishable spice mixed in with pathchouli and powder. Perhaps because I am used to truer and more linear vanilla's, but this did not smell even remotely like vanilla to me. In fact it's a bit intense in the spice department and the dry down is faint spice and powder. This is going back to Sephora.

Being a strong/oriental perfume lover, I like the spice in this scent. But I'm afraid that, like the other posters, I was underwhelmed. My greatest complaint is (as usual) that it has little to no staying power. I like the nutmeg and whatever other spice they put in this. What I also like is that although it is a holiday-ish scent, it doesn't make one smell like a Yankee candle, or worse, cake batter. Smells a bit like chai, though (I'll never understand this new trend that wants us to smell like chocolate, doughnuts, marshmallows, and other edibles). Anyway, not my thing. 3 lippies for low staying power.

I didn't like this compared to the other Lavanila fragrances. It has a very sharp note to it that I can't place. It was very unpleasant and strong. It reminded me of 80's fragrances. My favorite Lavanila is Vanilla Blossom. This one just didn't cut it.

Just got this in the mail today. Not bad, but not great either. I can definately smell the Nutmeg and Cardomom in the first initial spray. But that quickly disappears and I'm left with a sweet Vanilla scent with traces of those spices. I didnt smell the Sandalwood at all. I also smell a faint petroleum smell too. Maybe its just me? I dont hate the smell and DH liked it but didnt love it. I guess I was hoping for something different that wouldn't be mistaken as a Glade plug-in. I'm glad I didnt pay full price for it.
