Can't get over how beautiful this smells! I love vanilla so when I saw this I had to get it! I was thinking it would smell like the usual bath and body works kind of vanilla but this is so much better! It smells rich yet light and pretty yet sexy. My bf loves it and so do I. The packaging is super cute and it has pretty good lasting powers. Go get this even if you don't necessarily like vanilla, I swear you will love this! Heaven!

i once had the body mist of this. i really liked how it smelled but i sprayed 20 times on my body and in a heart beat, POOF, it's gone and no one not even me noticed it. i now have the body lotion which smells exactly the same but the difference is people notice it all the time. not only it smells absolutely divine, it stays for hours and it's also moisturizing for a whole day long. loooove madagascan vanilla

This is my favorite Body Shop fragrance. It's a fresh vanilla, not the usual heavy bakery scent. The floral notes on top of the vanilla are very light, almost an aquatic scent.

I love, love vanilla, but I have an issue with them turning so plastic on me. I don't have that issue with this scent (though the lotion did this to me, made me a sad sad panda) because of the depth of the floral here. I'm not usually big on florals, but that deep vanilla bean scent is so complex that the clean, fragrant floral component really balances it out without killing that foodiness of it. I am in love with it. I can wrap myself up in the scent and feel like I'm in a greenhouse on a bed of vanilla flowers. I love it!

One lippie off for lasting power, but that tends to be a thing with The Body Shop, methinks.

Oh Fragonard Vanille, how I've missed thee! Uh, I mean, The Body Shop Madagascan Vanilla Flower?! This reminds me so much of Fragonard's version, which is an unusual take on vanilla - spicy, sexy, with a hint of vanilla but with a twist. It's sophisticated and slightly mysterious. Unlike most vanilla scents, this is not simply sweet or in your face. As the French say, there's a certain je ne sais quoi about it. I always think of a scent like this for a night out on the town in a ball gown or for a day trip to art museums. I've been so bummed since Fragonard's Vanille was discontinued, and its replacement, Fleur de Vanille, is just not the same. So glad I've found Madagascan Vanilla Flower!

This is my all time favorite fragrance mist. It has vanilla scent with a twist of freshness and floral scents. The scent is really longlasting, i sprayed it at 6 pm and i still can smell it 12 hours after! Besides, it is my fave mood booster!! All of my friends say that this smells really heavenly (beyond the best), even my male friends said so! The biggest turn off is the bottle is made of glass.... Will i repurchase it? Sure, after i finish all my body mists :)

I have the lotion in this scent.. and I'm not sure whether this should be called "lotion" because its just like the body purees that TBS has to offer. The same thin watery consistency and minimal moisture. So people who have dry skin, this might not be the product for you. Anyways on to the scent, its a very sweet and floral vanilla which might feel too heady at first but it gets mellow with time and the result is quite delicious. I have a lot of vanilla scents and I've learnt that this goes well if layered with them. Nothing unique about it, I'm sure there would be plenty of similar scents around, one being from the body shop itself and that is Love etc.

Being a vannila fan thought this be worth adding to my collection it was to floral for my taste I sadly didint like this one very much also the staying power is pethatic and wears off within 20 minutes.

I just bought the madagascan vanilla body mist and the scent is soooo sweet. It reminds me of vanilla cupcakes, and a bit musky scent. The packaging js beautiful but it is made of glass which i dont really like :(

First of all I didn't like the previous vanilla of The Body Shop, too plastic to my nose. I finally got the Madagascan vanilla flower in oil version and it does remind me of 5:40 pm in Madagascar by Kenzo.
It's not the gourmand kind of vanilla but almost airy with the exotic freshness of frangipani and a hint of amber. Less cloying than Love etc
Still fairly linear, it was to be expected looking at the notes but I prefer my vanillas a bit more complex. I prefer to use it as a cocooning/before bed scent/layered to sweeten other perfumes or used to scent homemade scrub with brown sugar and baby oil!
