Oh yuck... this stuff has a really weird smell... like plastic and something else that just makes my stomach turn.. i dont know what happened to this scent because years ago it didnt smell this bad.. maybe its just the new formula or something.

This is my go to scent for the fall/winter months. It's so nice and not to overpowering.

Oh wow this stuff is bad...I tried it in both the lotion and splash form. The splash smells very cheap...Sweet, cloying, plain, and strong. The lotion is even worse - all the above said attributes plus a hint of burned plastic. No, I can't...

I've never been a fan of Vanilla scents. Far from it. Boy did this change me! Or now maybe I'm only a fan of b&bw's vanillas :)
So it all started one day, long ago, when my friend let me use her antibacterial foam in warm vanilla sugar. After that fateful day, boy was I hooked!
Since then I've had this in the pocket sanitizer, lotion, foam, and soap. I looove it as a soap, smells so good and freshening. I love pairing it as a lotion with a different body spray/perfume thats not vanilley. I don't think I'd ever use it as a spray just because I think that would be too much for me. But I'd love to have this in a car fragrance! Then I'd probably just find excuses to get in my car and drive somewhere.

This is okay.. I use it to freshen up during the day. The only downside is that it can smell like soap. Just use sparingly. ;)

Love this scent! I hear they reformulated it & that's caused some negative reviews, but I didn't use it before and love the current one. I purchased the body wash, cream, and spray. I get compliments all the time about how great I smell, my skin is extremely soft from the lotion, and the body wash lingers nicely. When I ran out, I decided to give the Victoria's Secret vanilla body wash a shot, and it doesn't even hold a candle to the Bath & Body Works formula. My skin is soft, even before lotion, and the warm vanilla sugar scent is amazing. The boyfriend absolutely loves the way it smells.

I love love love love this scent! It's my favorite one at BBW! It smells like cookies. I like the smell of vanilla so pretty much anything with vanilla in it, I like. It's a warm, cozy scent that I guess would be considered a "winter scent" but I don't really go by that and just use it all year round. I have the shower gel, lotion and body spray. It's not too strong either, so you could layer them without it being overwhelming.

It smells good once you put it on, but in a little while it wil start to smell like plastic ..

My favorite of the B&BW scents - I think this is a nice, creamy warm vanilla (when i read the packaging and it referenced rice pudding I knew exactly what they meant), and since I am a vanilla fan from way back (I actually used to put vanilla extract on my pulse points, waaaaaaaay back when vanilla scents were a rarity) I enjoy this line. It's better for the cooler months than the warmer months, as i prefer something lighter and more refreshing as a base when it's sultry out - but that's not to imply that this is overpowering in any way. It's got a little more going on than a straight vanilla, but it's not in the high end gourmand arena quite yet. I think for the price point it does what it says it will very well. I don't go out of my way to purchase it, but when I run across a sale at B&BW I always make sure to stock up on this fragrance line. Not an HG or anything, but a definite staple in the shower line up.

Shower Gel: Awesome, sweet, creamy, highly scented. Will repurchase as long as it's available.
Body Lotion: I found the scent in the new packaging/formula is not the same as it used to be. The sweet vanilla scent is simply not there. The new formula smells like slightly sweet generic plastic oats and is nothing like the way WVS is supposed to smell. I regret buying this lotion and will not repurchase WVS body lotion unless the formula drastically changes to fix the scent.
Splash/Mist: Smells good like vanilla extract but there's a strong alcohol scent that takes a few good solid minutes to dissipate. With this one I like to apply it outside so the alcohol fumes can escape quicker. The remaining scent is light and sweet. I'm not always sure the scent lasts but I don't want to risk over-application due to nose burnout. Awesome for layering with other scents though!
EDT: Yes, this is great! I wasn't sure about it at first since I was getting something bitter in the dry-down the first few times I wore it. But, I stopped getting that bitterness after wearing this EDT for a week or two and now I smell rich, sweet vanilla with a nice anchor of deeper vanilla extract smell. Lasting power is decent, and I would repurchase.
Triple Moisture Body Cream: YUCK. This is gross and smells nothing like WVS.
I'd love to see a packaging redesign for this classic scent. I'd hate to see it DCd.

I'm perpetually on the lookout for the perfect vanilla scent. This is a vanilla that tries to be a gourmand but doesn't cut it. Lacks what it takes to be a sensual vanilla, too. It is 'warm' but all in all pretty boring and flat to me.

PROS: Some of the products in the line are quite inexpensive.
CONS: Just too sweet in the end. Thought it wasn't, but with time, it wore on my nerves.

Vanilla is a smell that is pretty universal and loved by most, so it goes without saying that this is a popular fragrance! However, this is different from many vanilla scents in that it's warmer and more sensual, not hyper-sweet the way some other vanillas are. This makes it a little "unusable" for the summer, but for the rest of the year, it manages to be deep and inviting without being cloying or heady. My mother wore this fragrance when I was young, so yes, I have an emotional attachment to it, but my friends and I all still love it!

Smells like ice cream. Good scent for cold winter days!

Very yummy and girly and comforting! Not what I would call "classy" or "mature", but great for casual wear and it never fails to get compliments!

I absolutely love ANYTHING vanilla. Warm Vanilla Sugar is so delicious smelling. Men love this scent too. It reminds them of food.

Purchased the Bath and body works - warm vanilla sugar perfume (EDT) and unfortunately on me it smells very chemical :( So dissapointed because i love a good vanilla smell. I find The Body Shop vanilla perfume much nicer. I did buy it off ebay though (because we don't have a B&BW in Australia) and maybe its a fake?
The best vanillary perfumes i have found so far are: Jean paul gaultier -'classique' and Calvin klein- 'contradiction'. If someone knows of some other perfumes along these lines please message me! Really want to find a new smell ;-)
UPDATE: OK... its growing on me , i hated it before but after the chemical smell dies down it's actually quite nice - couldn't put my finger on it before but have just realised this smells really similar to Vera Wang 'princess'

Yayyyy! My hubbi bought me the body lotion, foaming soap, bead soap, mini foaming soap, and antibac. lotion that came in this cute pink packaging bag from bath and body, for my bday and i love everything from it. It smells soooo good i cant stop smelling my hands, and neither can my hubbi! I am so surprised because it smells really good, and im very picky. Usually i hate vanilla and i hate many bath and body smells, but this truly does smell very good! I love it!

Uggghh!!! I just do get it with this scent. It gives me horrible migraines and it reminds me old lady's vanilla-musk scented perfumes. This scent just gags me. Sorry :( Will never purchase again.

I LOVE this stuff!!! I am the sweet-scents kind of girl and warm vanilla sugar yells MEEEE all the time. It smells yummy; I often have to remind myself you cannot eat this stuff ha ha. It keeps my skin soft all day with a hint of sweet in it - I dont even have to use body spray or perfume most of the time, it does that job too. This lotion (and all B&BW stuff, for the matter) has a strong smell (nice concentration) and the bottle will last a long time ~ they are addicting!!!!!! It is not THAT expensive, esp. when there is a sale. I will purchase it again and again. Gotta love it! <3
