Omg...I LOVE this fragrance! It is sweet from the vanilla, but has a softness that reminds me of an island breeze. I am very sensitive to fragrance, but this one doesn't bother me at all...in fact, I can spray this on as much as I want, because it never gets overpowering. It's lasting power isn't that great...more like a body spray than perfume, and I think the price is a bit high because of it's poor staying power. However, the scent is so lovely that I can overlook both of those drawbacks.

Meh, at first sniff this smelled almost exactly like an old limited edition VS body mist I LOVED (Island Escape) However, after wearing it this turns completely linear and into a very basic, almost cloying vanilla. Will probably be returning :( decent staying power though!

I got this as a sample from Ulta as a perfume solid mini. It smells better in the tin. On my skin it turns into a cloying vanilla extract type scent. I think I'll just stick to vanilla scents from www.lovepotionperfume.com from now on.

I have returned all Pacifica products i have ever bought....they are cloying one dimensional and not worth the money. They are not an all natural line either. I have sampled this and the lemon blossom fragrance.

I bought this on a whim at Whole Foods, even though I'm not usually a fan of sweet scents. In particular, I have never liked the way vanilla scents wear on my skin, so keep that in mind for this review. However, let me start by telling you what I do like. For one thing, the price point is fantastic! Most scents packaged in a rollerball start at $20, and only go up from there. For the quality of the perfume oil that you get, $12 is great. It has excellent silage, and it is potent enough to be smelled from a distance. The packaging is also lovely, with a glass tube and a golden screw-on cap. The scent of Island Vanilla, however, leaves a bit to be desired. For starters, it smells more complex in the tube than it does on my skin. Initially, I can pick up the fruity and floral undertones, but the dry down leaves a lot to be desired. As another reviewer said, it becomes sickly sweet, with strictly vanilla notes. It even leaves me feeling a bit nauseous. That being said, if you are a fan of scents that smell like rich desserts, you may love this. Personally, my favorite scent is the perfume oil from TBS Amazonian Lily range; a light, floral scent that is a far cry from this saccharinely cloying one. I will be returning this, but the quality of the product makes me want to try a floral scent from this line.

My favorite scent ever! If you like Prada Candy, you'll really like this. Sweet but very clean and refreshing.

I own Island Vanilla in rollerball form and it smells absolutely delicious! It's a sweet, sugary vanilla scent without being too cloying or artificial. Since it's simple and not overpowering, it also makes an excellent layering scent. I'm especially impressed with the staying power; if I apply it to my pulse points, it lingers even after an 8-hour day at work.

I bought the roll-on version of this for keeping in my purse and for airplane travel. I really like vanilla fragrances, and this one is my new favorite for cold-weather months. The roller ball does not dispense much, but it does not have to. The scent is fairly strong. It's a warm, woody vanilla that lasts several hours. Bonus points for Pacifica being a 100% vegan, cruelty-free company. And for a good roll-on design that doesn't leak everywhere.

A very basic Tahitian-type vanilla. Nice and easy to wear, lightly sweet without being childish or cloying, but there are perfume-ish notes in there that take it out of the simple vanilla category. I suspect these notes are woods. Wood tends to add that artificial harshness that strikes me as 'perfume-y'. Would layer okay, but even at the great price point, it's not what I'm looking for.

I adore this scent, the second I smelled it at Whole Foods, I knew I had to buy it. I got it as a self present with the lotion and the body gel for about $30 ( The gel is 16 oz and I think the lotion is 8). The smell is to die for, when you get a whiff. After wearing this for a couple off hours, I smelt a hint of rum (or something that smells like it). After that realization, it was one of the only things my nose could think of. I don't like the smell of rum, so I took a star off. I don't have the perfume in a bottle, but in a rollerball. If I put a couple of strokes, it'll last me throughout half of the day. The scent goes great with other scents. I sprayed my Taylor Swift perfume and added this to the scent. Some guy came up to me and told me how I smelled like cotton candy, which is probably what the two of them combined smell like. Even with the rum, I LOVE this perfume. I also love how natural the company is.
