Although I absolutely adore this fragrance, it has zero lasting power. I'm constantly spraying myself and this shouldn't be necessary! However, Vanilla EDT is heavenly for the half hour or so I can actually smell it. A true uncut sweet and warm vanilla, no flowery notes just straight up lovely scrumptious vanilla. I would give 5 lippies for the actual smell of the perfume as I love it so so so much but have to cut it down to 2 lippies because of nil lasting power. I LOVE the packaging, it's totally seventies retro, the perfume lid looks like a solid gold bullion bar! Just bought 3 bottles, which I will use up pretty quickly as I'm constantly spraying, but alas, will not be buying Alyssa Ashley Vanilla EDT again.
I love vanilla perfumes and I'm very disappointed by this one. I'm not going to go on and on about wishing the old vanilla back cos I think if we smelled it now, it would smell too sweet and plastic/eraser like, if you know what I mean! However, I still would prefer to wear the old vanilla to this try hard one. I just don't really like it. It doesn't last on my skin or clothes and it's just not...wow. I don't like the flowery notes in it. i want a straight vanilla as the name suggests. Should be called "a bit vanillary, bit flowery, bit ....... rubbish edt".
Love love love this fragrance oil, I only wish it came as a body spray as well. I add it to a coconut hair shine mist from Boots and then use it as a perfume to spray on my hair and clothes. Have got so so so many compliments when I wear it. Loads of people comment on it and say i smell like holidays, Bounty bars etc... Can't imagine my life without it! Makes your hair smell lovely too.
Quite like Mariage by Givenchy. Doesn't knock me out or make me want to bathe in it. Like the sherbet like sparkle of it. A good perfume to have in your collection if not to wear all the time. Flowery, sherbet, definite sparkle to it. When I first spray it I can smell Dior Doce Vita, but only for the first few moments. Drydown is good and sweetish.
Have worn Jungle Elephant edp for years on and off. I keep going back to it as it's such an unusual fragrance, I don't think there's anything out there quite like it. i've recently become a bit tired of it though cos I spilled it all over my clothes in a suitcase on holiday and my clothes smelled of it FOREVER!!! It's seriously strong stuff so you only need a bit to last you through the day and night. Spicy and vanillary, I love love love the dry down but sometimes can't bear the getting to the dry down bit. Although I have mixed feelings about Jungle I still love it and can appreciate it's uniqueness and knock out scent power. I can definitely recommend it to any perfumista out there!
