I'm tardy to the party! My friend swears by this lotion and goodness she's right! I went on Ebay and purchased the lotion and body mist and I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE them both. I've spent quite a few dollars on various edp's and usually have a problem with sillage and I normally have to bathe in my perfume. With this, I use the lotion and a generous amount of the mist in the morning and it leaves a nice trail that blends well with my chemistry. I get compliments on it. I even went and ordered the pocket size mist and travel lotion to retouch during the day b/c I love it so much. The smell is also unique to me. It's sweet, but yet fruity, incredibly feminine.. just a beautiful scent all around. I hope they bring it back during the semi annual sale. I can't believe I get far more compliments and noticeability from this body mist and lotion as opposed to my many perfumes. This stuff just smells YUMMMMY to me. This right here is def a favorite that I'd always like to have in my scent collection.

Oh my Lord! I love this scent! One of my all-time favorites ever! I was at the Semi-Annual Sale and I saw a big bin of the Signature Vanilla scents. I tried out the Lemon Vanilla and it was okay, nothing special. Same with the Coconut Vanilla. Lastly, I tried the Apricot Vanilla, and...wow! It is simply beautiful! It is very sweet, yet fruity. I just love this smell! I am going to layer it with the Madagascar Vanilla lotion. If you ever have a chance, buy this! Enjoy! <3

This is one of the best smelling scents EVER. It is so pretty, creamy and just simply divine (Cheesy I know, but there truly is no other way to say it). Someone said it kinda smells like marsmallows and that is absolutley correct... like marshmallows and fruit. This scent is not sickingly sweet by any means, and it very hard to find now (therefore, rediculouly expensive, when you do) . But personally, as a collector of fragrances (I have over 30), this is worth the price.

One day while popping into BBW, One of the sales associates asked me if they could help me find anything and I told them I was just looking around. She asked if she could make a suggestion. Over near the sumer vanillas section she held up a Apricot Vanilla mist. I immediately fell in love with this product! I found out a few months later that it was going to be discontinued I immediately stocked up at the summer 2011 SAS. I really like this one because it fits the whole summer theme! It's really sweet but not too overpowering. It also has a long lasting power. I could spray myself one time and I can still smell it hours later. None of their products compare to this. Not even suggestions. I hope they bring it back if they were to redo the whole summer vanillas line, I know a lot of people would be happy. :)

Im so glad I gave this a 2nd chance! I originally bought apricot vanilla last year when it came out but everytime I used it, it gives me a headache and it used to smell like amber romance from VS.. So I returned it.. 1year later, I saw Apricot Vanilla on the SAS for $3. I tried it again and this time I'm inlove! To me it smells like apricot, lemon and a hint of berry with yummy creamy dreamy vanilla and marshmallow. Its heavenly! Its pretty long lasting too. Glad I bought 3 bottles from the SAS because its now discontinued.

I am in love with this scent. Having mourned the passing of my old signature scent, I have branched out and tried new fragrances. I quickly realized I am now drawn to sweet scents. This is at the top of my new fragrance favorites list. Creamy vanilla and marshmallow and juicy peachy sweet and fresh but with a hint of warmth. Yummm. I only use the sprays from BBW, as the shower gel causes me to break out and the lotion just doesn't moisturize me enough. I believe this is discontinued, but I would recommend an Ebay search of you like sweet smells.

Another great scent from BBW. I absolutely loved and adored all of the "vanillas."



The scent is long lasting and smells straight up like Apricots and Vanilla. It has that creamy apricot scent and a bright vanilla scent. It is a creamy scent and it smells amazing in the bottle and on my skin.



I would repurchase this again, again, and again. Love it.

I'm on the fence about this scent. I like it, got it in the spray (although I think it smelled better in the lotion in the store), but it was only 2.50 on the website so here it is. I think it is kind of the ghetto version of Comptoir Sud Pacifique's abricot vanille, but way less sweeter than that. It has more apricot , less sugary sweetness and isnt as dreamy. Although the price is, so you can wear it everyday. I think this scent reminds me of that apricot doll that was in the Strawberry Shortcake doll collection in the 80's. It's a pretty scent. Im not sure about the lasting power, as Ive sprayed it several times today and I think the smell is fading quickly, but that could be because I can't detect it on myself. I like it but Im not sure Id repurchase it unless it was on sale again.

I must say I tried this scent very late when I find out it was getting discontinued. I always wanted to try it but my local B&BW never had any of it in stock.

Scent: it is a creamy-dried apricot with a vanilla scent. Very simple and sweet.
Lasting power: it lasts pretty long, definitely can detect it hours later.
Body lotion/Body cream version of AV: smoothing and makes your skin soft with this beautiful scent.
AV shower gel: It makes my shower smells like creamy apricots. Doesn't stay on your skin when you are drying off, but excellent for layering.
AV spray: Can't have enough of this spray. It smells good not fake. Last forever. I have 5 bottles of it since I found out it was being discontinued.

I recommend it, if you can find it - GET IT! You won't regret it.
It also smells wonderful combined with Forever Sunshine.

This used to be really hard to find, and I'm unsure if the vanillas line is sticking around after the sale or not. I bought this for $3.12, and the mini was $2.50. So it was a much better deal, and (why does BBW price things like that?) I thought the sale this year sucked, but at least they had the vanillas. This smells like apricot and peaches, and marshmallow. Those are the dominant notes to my nose. You can smell a spun sugar note somewhat... it's like they quit right before it stepped into candy land. I also bought two of the shower gels because the scent was more mild in those. I can see how in extremely hot weather this could be too sweet. They could have left out a few base notes like the marshmallow and sugared musk.

Top Notes: Juicy California Apricot, Meyer Lemon, Dewy Strawberry Leaves
Middle Notes: Watery Cyclamen, Creamy Peach, Sugared Honeysuckle
Base Notes: Airy Marshmallow, Tahitian Vanilla, Sugared Musk, Soft Woods
