I agree with luckygirl322. The scent is gorgeous, the soap is very drying.
Not ďpureĒ vanilla at all. I smell rather very loud mix of vanilla, flowers and patchouli on my skin. Also, reminds me of The Body Shop generic scent, which I hate. So far, my favourite is Yves Rocher Vanilla bourbon, but they donít do it in a roller boll form, thatís why I tried this one.
Great shampoo. My hair is very oily, and I am wearing a really short haircut, so for every day use this is exactly what I need, and no conditioner, by the way. Leathers nicely, the smell is strong and artificial, but I like it, maybe because it has tons of vanilla in it, and I am a vanilla addict. After this shampoo, my hair is soft and manageable. Will repurchase.
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.

Unfortunately, I have oily skin, and on me this scent turns chemical and sour almost right away. I like the concept, to me it really smells like champagne. Just cannot wear it.
I love how it smells in the bottle: sweet mix of fruits, vanilla and marigold. Bur when I wear it, all I smell is just pure peach, nothing else. I canít believe it! Plus, it doesnít stay on me at all, after 10 minutes nothingís left.
I totally agree with deepa1026, this is very comforting scent Ė warm and sweet. I wear it every day and it works like aromatherapy on me, relaxes and calms. I use just 1 spritz on my body under my clothes and that is enough for the entire day. People often say that this perfume is for strong, know-how-to-get-it womenÖ I donít know. Iím kind of a shy and reserved person and I still consider this perfume as my signature scent. Maybe because itís not loud and aggressive, itís rather soft and feminine. Itís so sad they discontinued it. My next favorite is Hypnotic Poison, so I think Iíll get back to it.
I tried this hair color in light ash brown/light brown shades, which are very close to my natural color. And every time the color faded in literally 2 weeks, leaving that awful reddish hue Ė every time exactly the same. I wash my hair every other day and never thought that was the reason the color faded. Now I use Clairol Natural Instincts, which is semi-permanent, and it never fades on me!
