I like to call this a hippie girl's Viva La Juicy. It's sweet, playful, and youthful (not that you have to be young to wear it!). It smells like straight up vanilla on my skin, just cool (breezy...

Pacifica’s Indian Coconut Nectar is one of my all-time favorite perfumes. I have liked several of the brand’s fragrances, so I tried Island Vanilla. The vanilla is feminine and subtle. It’s...

Nice vanilla scent with a hint of caramel. Nothing ground-breaking here, but I do find this is a nice balance between a natural and gourmand vanilla. It reminds me of a lighter, less burnt sugary...

I have tried quite a few of the Pacifica fragrances and am a fan of them overall. I have to say that Island Vanilla is my favorite. I wouldn't say that this is a classic vanilla scent though. To me...

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)...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

I bought this on a whim at Whole Foods, even though I'm not usually a fan of sweet scents. In particular, I have never liked the way vanilla scents wear on my skin, so keep that in mind for this...

I own Island Vanilla in rollerball form and it smells absolutely delicious! It's a sweet, sugary vanilla scent without being too cloying or artificial. Since it's simple and not overpowering, it...

A very basic Tahitian-type vanilla. Nice and easy to wear, lightly sweet without being childish or cloying, but there are perfume-ish notes in there that take it out of the simple vanilla category....
