I've been looking for a nice vanilla scent that

1. Actually smells like vanilla(unlike Lavanila)

2. Doesn't smell sugary(like a lot of the limited edition perfumes that come out seasonally)

3. Doesn't smell so synthetic(most of the lower end stuff smells very fake/chemically and kind of like play dough)

This is perfect for me. At first it does smell more complex but as it dries down it smells like real vanilla/vanilla bean with a little bit of warmth and not so sugary which I LOVE. I've been looking everywhere for a simple vanilla scent because a lot of my lipsticks and gloses have that scent and I just love it. I feel like this is more of a vanilla bean scent rather than vanilla extract. This last pretty well on me but I do have more oily skin so maybe that's why? Not too sure.


The only issue is that it's kind of expensive for 1oz. I'd like to see a larger "full size" version where you can kind of save a little money buying it cause I feel I'd go through it quickly and don't want to constantly pick it up at ULTA(since it's kind of far) lol but other than that it's an amazing perfume!

Currently my favorite cruelty free perfume! It's a really sophisticated vanilla on me; I was really surprised because I thought it would smell synthetic or too sweet, but it's very gourmand and rich. Love it, it's really a fool proof scent because everyone likes vanilla :) It also layers well with other perfumes!

I love gourmand vanilla scents, but as the previous reviewer put it, its a boring "flat" vanilla with no warmth or depth to it. I understand pacifica fragrances generally dont last as long as "chemical perfumes" but the lasting power was ridiculously short unlike the other pacifica perfumes ive tried before. 1 lippie for the typical cute pacifica packaging and clean ingredients but I would skip this one and check out their other fragrances

Vanilla is always a safe blind buy for me, except for this one. Island Vanilla is a flat, floral, cold (not warm like the "Island" would suggest) vanilla. It never warms on my skin and is just plain off-putting.

I bought this based on reviews, without smelling it. They do not carry this in my area. I wanted a nice vanilla perfume. I did not care for it at all. I am not sure if it just did not match my body chemistry, Most vanillas smell good on me, but not this one. I was not impressed. I think that there are better fragrances out there.

I just breezed past this in Whole Foods and spritzed it on my neck--hours later, I had hundreds of tiny red bumps covering my chest and neck. I do not have sensitive skin and have never had a reaction to any products before, so I was shocked! The rash lasted for over 5 days so I wouldn't touch this product with a ten-foot pole.
Get your generic vanilla scents from Bath & Body Works or Victoria's Secret.

Omg...I LOVE this fragrance! It is sweet from the vanilla, but has a softness that reminds me of an island breeze. I am very sensitive to fragrance, but this one doesn't bother me at all...in fact, I can spray this on as much as I want, because it never gets overpowering. It's lasting power isn't that great...more like a body spray than perfume, and I think the price is a bit high because of it's poor staying power. However, the scent is so lovely that I can overlook both of those drawbacks.

Meh, at first sniff this smelled almost exactly like an old limited edition VS body mist I LOVED (Island Escape) However, after wearing it this turns completely linear and into a very basic, almost cloying vanilla. Will probably be returning :( decent staying power though!

I got this as a sample from Ulta as a perfume solid mini. It smells better in the tin. On my skin it turns into a cloying vanilla extract type scent. I think I'll just stick to vanilla scents from www.lovepotionperfume.com from now on.

I have returned all Pacifica products i have ever bought....they are cloying one dimensional and not worth the money. They are not an all natural line either. I have sampled this and the lemon blossom fragrance.
