I love Invitation ,it is intoxicating,beautiful and feminine just like Susan Lucci
S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G!!! I have the famous Bell Jar and I Love it! Gorgeous,beautiful, pure perfection indeed! The best woody(cedar) violet ever! Did I say stunning yet?
A classic vanilla, natural and uncomplicated ,yet very "high end". Longlasting too, about 5 hours on me. The best!
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Speziali Fiorentini Vanilla Perfume Oil
tippie 10/29/2006 2:46:00 PM
Speziali Fiorentini Vanilla edp on my skin is a sweet, slightly foody ,yet light vanilla fragrance with a soft hazelnut/ almond/vanillic drydown. I'm assuming the almond/hazelnut note I detect would be the nuts in the Croccante candy in the description of the fragrance. Decent staying power of about 4 hours on me. I also purchased their vanilla spray deodorant, which is very soft and lightly fragranced and made for sensitive skin. Speziali Fiorentini may very well be my HG vanilla fragrance! I'm Italian born so that's a plus for me,yay!
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Fresh Vanilla - body splash

I am finally exploring vanillas this fall and after trying many of the expensive brands including L'Artisan's Vanilia ,CSP,La Maison de La Vanille and Susanne Lang's vanillas, this is the best vanilla fragrance to me thus far,light ,softly sweet and warm,with a bit of a burnt sugar note. Lasting power is about three hours, my bottle is an edt not the body splash,but I love reapplying.This fragrance is discontinued but I was told by fragrance board members that it can be found on Ebay for a song,under ten dollars for a 1.7oz spray. Lucky for me, I've had this in my closet for a few years ,it was a Christmas gift from my 6 year old nephew and I cannot believe I never wore it.I love this now even though I am not a big vanilla fragrance fan! At least not yet.

My favorite gardenia fragrances have always been Annick Goutal's smoky and sultry Gardenia Passion and Yves Rocher light and sweet Pur Desir de Gardenia. Perfect Gardenia is a combo of the two with sweet vanilla notes.
Chloe Narcisse is one of my favorite cool weather scents,it is so sweet and heady and intoxicating! I love it and my DH finds it to be the sexiest fragrance I own!
In response to eatigs comments below, I recently tried Femme and didn't like it on me. I'm sure it works well for others but it didn't go well with my chemistry. Whether it was the curry, cumin or some other notes in it that I don't like on me , that isn't the point. The point is Productville is for reviewing a product for the benefit of other consumers,period. If a member cannot wear a particular fragrance because of a certain note of a spice, fruit or any other food, whether it's the cumin,curry,cinnamon, black pepper,red pepper, basil,tomato,orange,lemon or even chocolate, coconut or vanilla etc..... he or she has the right to say so . Do you get the point?

Floral,sweet,fruity and powdery tropical vanilla. Poor lasting power on me.
Fragrances -La Maison de la Vanille - Vanille Givrée des Antilles

A lighter version of the very popular Thierry Mugler's Angel. I like both however Angel is very longlasting. A pity Vanille Givree is so fleeting .

Fragrances -La Maison de la Vanille - Vanille Fleurie de Tahiti
tippie 9/23/2006 2:38:00 PM
I don't get any florals in this,I get sugary sweet comforting vanilla. Very fleeting only lasts an hour on me,so it only deserves 3 lippies.
A very sexy fragrance with the most delicious vanillic drydown. Love it!
Fragrances -Yves Rocher - Ode a l'amour passionnement
tippie 9/18/2006 8:17:00 PM
I like this scent for cold weather,it's a sweet and comforting combination of fruit,vanilla,almonds and musk. "Pretty in pink" pour bottle, but I wish it came in a spray instead.
