I used to wear this perfume when I was a teenie-bopper. I thought it smelled like cookies and sugary treats. (It still does... at least the formula I used did.) However, now I only want to smell cookies when they are baking in the oven... not on my wrists.

The Body Shop changed their formulation for the Vanilla Products in about 2005. They don't smell the same anymore.
The Perfume Oil & EDT now have florals in them - rather than the pure Vanilla they used to be.
I won't buy them anymore, they ruined a perfectly good scent.
I hear they'll be discontinued anyway.

I'm so glad i came here and found snugglebunnyjm's review on this. I totally agree. The 90's Vanilla was something i used all the time. The shower gel was beautiful and the lotion made my skin so soft. No vanilla scent since that has touched it and i'm so disappointed in this, i say new but its been back for years!
If anyone knows of anything that smells like the old vanilla line, please contact me!

WOW! I went CRAZY for this stuff a few years ago, and I went and bought it. I love love LOVED it soo much. VERY sweet and pretty.. but I guess my nose got sick of it because when I smell any of the Vanilla scents from TBS now I just smell chemicals. Staying power wasn't great either. So this gets a 4.

I don't hate this, but I miss the old Body Shop vanilla line. In the '90s it smelled more like marshmallows or syrup or something ... in the best way possible. The new version is more floral and musky, and I smell something sour and chemically in there. Sigh.

I love this scent (EDT)on me! I always feel sexy when I wear it and people always comment on how good I smell. My bf can't get enough of it either and gets annoyed when I try other perfumes! To him and me so far, nothing else compares to this fragrance. :)

Ok 3 as vanilla goes.
The new one with the white lid is nice but floral and very warm.
The second version with black lid....warm floral and strong mixed with alot more than just vanilla
the original marshmallow pure vanilla that you wanted to eat! i love this i got one on Ebay a month ago, paid a fair bit for it but i love it.

this is a very nice vanilla...my mom,who can't stand any other vanilla products actually likes this one on me! it's a little tropical and coconuty on my skin,i love it worn over the nut body butter,i also find this to be the only vanilla scent that i can tolerate in the heat of summer,i use the oil in winter only because it is VERY STRONG! but for the spring and summer i prefer the body mist,it is light and perfect!

My signature scent - people frequently compliment me on it, from a homeless guy in the street stopping me to tell me I smelled good, to a drunken dj biting me because he said I smelled good enough to eat (strange man). You have to give this fragrance bonus points because it is relatively cheap, and the scent sticks around all day, especially on clothes.

I have Loccitane Vanilla and find that TBS version is relatively sharper (in sweetness) and also less complex. A spray is enuff. I just wore it yesterday, and the sales staff complained that she felt giddy (Oops). The scent can really be overly sweet that i personally also feel a sting in my nose.

I have the oil. I really love this. a sweat vanilla + flowers smell. not overpowering. funny thing is, after a while when it dries down, I smell like a smoker! I know that sounds wierd, and don't know if anyone else thinks the same. I like it nevertheless.

I usually hate perfumes but vanilla is a nice light scent. I love this line. The body lotion and perfume spray are the best. Vanilla Spice is awesome too!

I do like this line, so far i have amassed the perfume, home fragrance oil, several editions of the candles, the shower gel, pot pourri and the body lotion. The fragrance is lovely, but tbh it doesn't make me go WOW, i HAVE to wear it! So probably won't purchase it again, i would however purchase the candles, home oils and pot pourri, as they are all lovely and warm-smelling, and perfect for what i want in my room! The shower gel is also lovely, and heavily plied with the scent, but didn't do much for my skin, the lotion, also yummy, is great to wear on a night out if u wanna layer the scent, but i probably wouldn't go out and buy these again tbh. Highly reccomend them though, they just weren't a perfect fit for my fussy tastes lol.

I've been using the Vanilla Home Fragrance oil for a few months now and I love it! At first I was disappointed because I thought it should have been more foody (think sugar cookies) but once I got used to the musky floral, I fell in love. I just discovered the EDT and it is soooo wonderful! I never really thought to wear this as a perfume but now that I have it, I'll always reach for it when I'm in a 'light' scent mood. All musk fans need to try this. Nice and sensual.

I've got vanilla perfume oil,body lotion,tea-light candles and home frangrance oil.The vanilla products are my favourites.Sweet and lovely.The perfume oil lasts a long time on the skin-and the bottle also lasts for ages-it is very,very sweet,so wouldn't suit someone that doesn't like sweet perfume.Only need to put on a little bit and I can still smell it during the day.I have received nice comments while wearing the vanilla perfume oil.Great quality.

I try vanilla from every store and scent shop you can think of. The Body Shop Vanilla is the BEST in my opinion- it isn't overpowering at all, in fact you have to put a lot on to make it even detectable. Everyone compliments this scent, its delicious!

So sad about this-I used to love TBS vanilla perfume oil from a long time ago-it smelled like fresh baked cookies. This new version is musky. flowery and makes me want to puke.:(

I love Vanilla. The EDT was great for an inexpensive day/bedtime fragrance and smelt good. The problem I encounted was with the oil. It wares down to a dirt smell which I can't stand and when I burn it, it makes me sneeze. So now when I smell the body spray or the EDT they smell like dirt. I tried to use the oil with a emoliant and water to make an alcohol free beach spray (because alcohol reacts with UV light and causes pigmentation) and it just smelt like dirt. Wont Re-purchase.

I have the Vanilla oil and even though I wore it practically all last winter the level has barely dropped in the bottle. The oil is extremely versatile. I like to add a few drops to the bath or to lightly scented body lotions and never has any other perfume got such a reaction from people. It can also be layered with ither scnets to warm them up. Recently I blended some Ylang Ylang and a touch of Cinnamon with almond oil and applied a little on top of a quick swipe of Vanilla and had people in a local shop asking me what I was wearing. It's definitely a skin chemistry thing though because when my friend wears it, it smells totally different. I will keep buying this if I ever get to the bottom of the bottle I already have.

The vanilla perfume is lovely but the shower gel is horrible. It smells really perfumy and is very drying to skin.
