This fragrance is so sexy! I'ts kind of heavy and I was overwhelmed - in a good way. I have introduced it to some of my friends and most of them was like "mmmmmh". Whenever I'm in a bad mood I just spray this on and relax.

As much as I love vanilla scents, this was too overwhelming. Will not repurchase.

I haven't (re)purchased the perfume in a long time now so I won't be reviewing it. I just want to make a (useful) observation.
There are many reviews here who mention that the perfume's scent (vanilla, basically) is 'combined' or 'influenced' by 'the Bourbon'. LADIES. This perfume DOES NOT HAVE BOURBON EXTRACT/SCENT. The name Vanilla Bourbon comes from THE TYPE OF VANILLA used in this perfume, which is the vanilla that comes from Reunion (the country), previously named 'Ile de la Bourbon' (Bourbons' Island, from the French monarchical family of Bourbon, the House of Bourbon).
So please, before any of you write another 'I can smell the bourbon in this perfume' review, think about it :D

This has been a fave of mine for many years. I love that it comes in a small size or a large size and it's very affordable. It's a great non offensive smell and I tend to wear it a lot in colder weather or when I'm going to work. It lasts a really really long time too! The only thing I don't like is that the bottle does look a bit cheap but again you aren't paying big bucks for this perfume.
Tip: Try spraying this over the Noix de Coco perfume.

I received a half-filled travel size in a swap. Now I want more. This is a yummy vanilla that is not sugary sweet. It is similar to my L'Aromarine Vanille, which I absolutely adore. Having been disappointed in all these sugar vanilla scents, it is nice to find vanillas that are as close to vanilla absolute as I can find (and the essential oil is quite expensive).
I also recently received a bottle of Vanille Organic Vanilla. It is similar to the Vanilla Bourbon, but it has a touch of citrus on the first blast that bothered me, but it settled into a familiar vanilla that is a touch lighter than the Bourbon one.

Omg this is my fave fragrance ever!! If you are a huge fan of vanilla scent then this is definitely worth a try! Smells amaaaazing and it's not too strong! At the first few spritz it's a bit strong but love the way it smells after being on for a while - very subtle and soft! Also it's not that expensive and you can also but a mini size - perfect for on the go in your purse!

I've been purchasing Yves Rocher vanilla fragrances for years. When I was a kid, my mom bought me some Yves Rocher vanilla bubble bath and I just loved it. The fragrance was so rich and delicious. I don't think this is sold as a body wash anymore, but a few years ago I saw that the cologne was available, so I bought it. I mainly wear it when I'm in a nostalgic mood because it does remind me of when I was a child. The vanilla scent is so luscious that it makes my mouth water. For me, this is very much a mood fragrance, but it's not offensive and would probably be fine in most social situations.

I just recently bought this because I basically love anything vanilla. And first of all, I love the fact that it's true to the authentic vanilla scent but at the same time it's not like something edible. Since it's not a very complex fragrance, I like to pair it with something that has vanilla undertones just to bring out the flavour a bit more. And I've gotten tons of compliments on it!
Also, it lasts very well on the skin, even after I shower, I can still kind of feel it. As for the price, it's really cheap - I got a 20ml bottle for 3.50Ä. The only thing that might be bothersome is the bottle, which is nothing special, but Ițm perfectly fine with it.
All in all, great product, definitely going to repurchase!

This is sooooooo delicious! My new signature scent.
It's a deep, unique, fab vanilla scent, that definetly gets noticed!
It's really mature and yummy.

Recently purchased this product, since I like to try anything Vanilla. This is not a kiddie type vanilla. It is more for the mature woman, at least to my nose. It is a fairly heavy and dark vanilla, almost sweet with caramel, somewhat smokey. I really like it a lot. Would definitely buy again.

I received a sample of this from a lovely mua'er. Given the price, this is a surprisingly good fragrance. There's an initial blast of straight alcohol, the same smell you get if you sniff a bottle of real vanilla extractódonít spray right before a business meeting!! It dries down quickly and loses the boozy quality. Pretty darn good vanilla scent, with an overtone of salty. Itís the same subtle saltiness that L Lolita Lempicka has, although this smells nothing like L. I'd give it a 3.5 if I could.
For the price, and it's versatility for layering, grab a bottle!

A clean and fresh smelling, non cloying vanilla that feels more expensive than what it actually costs. Takes its place of honor up front and center beside my collection of niche boutique fragrances. I even prefer this one to CSP's Vanille Extreme or Vanille Abricot. Just a beautiful simple honeyed vanilla with a light touch of floral and musk.

A nice classy vanilla body spray with a hint of bourbon. I always get compliments when I wear this spray. Lasts a long time unlike other body sprays I have tried. Will buy again and again.

I really like this product. To me, the "bourbon" part doesn't stand out all that much, but I don't really mind. It lasts for ages, and whenever I wear it I always have people telling me how good I smell. I got this 3.4 oz bottle two months ago for like, $6.50 (at the half-off sale), and only a small fraction of it is used up.

After reading the reviews, I ordered 4 bottles of this, and I'm a bit disappointed. It's a very simple vanilla, not rich at all, and almost smells like a kid's fragrance. It smells a little better after it dries down, but not what I was hoping for at all.
It still smells good, but it's missing something for sure. It might be good for layering scents, but alone it's not the greatest. I was hoping it would be similar to B&BW's Creme Brulee, but it's not.
Also, I don't think the scent is Vanilla Bourbon, Bourbon seems to be the name of something else, not the scent itself?? If you search for Vanilla Bourbon on the site, it will not show up.
The actual name is "Vanille" I believe, so if you're searching and you're not sure if you found the right one, that is it. I believe it's about $9 a bottle. the box it comes in does say "Bourbon" underneath the name of the scent, but I don't believe there's any mention of it on the site.
If you're looking for a nice, non-offending scent for a young child, this one's great. I don't think I'll be purchasing anymore for myself, though. I will wear what I've bought from time to time, but I won't be spending any more money on this scent.
The Coconut scent of the same brand and price is much better than this one, IMO.

My favorite vanilla and I wear it every day. Light and sweet, not fruity, not flowery, not too foody. I wear it as a body spray, a couple of spritzes on my cleavage, under sweater. Good with jeans, with a skirt, with anything. Good staying power, lasts almost 8 hours on me.

It's a nice vanilla scent, but nothing I would swoon over. There's a soapy quality to it that I'm not too fond of. Might smell good as an air freshener, but not as a perfume IMHO.

This is a staple of mine. I adore vanilla scents and this one tops the list for a single note. Great as a base for MV2 (I am light-handed with it as it's $30 for .74oz) or with other single-mote fragrances like YR coconut (very tropical) or TBS Satsuma (smells better than Demeter's cremesicle). Alone, it's a beautiful, soft vanilla that's not too overpowering at all and I always get compliments. Also, the price is incredibly cheap; a huge 3.4oz bottle for $12.00CDN.

this has the same bourbon vanilla note that dior addict has, although i had to let it sit on my skin for awhile to get it (the initial spray was like dark caramel.) will be nice to add some depth to other vanilla frags. the yr vanilla body lotion is wonderful, too, and i would be more likely to buy it again rather than the edt, but the edt is so cheap it's a no brainer.

The only vanilla scent that I don't get sick of because it's not too heavy or sweet. Layers well with ALL types of scents, and lasts a long time as well. It's a huge bottle for very little money...wonderful stuff!!!!
