Sadly, not as unique as it once was-- too many similar alternatives on market today.

In the days before niche fragrances exploded, there was low-end Vanilla Lace (Victoria's Secret), drugstore Vanilla Musk (Coty), and not many high-end, luxe quality vanillas. That's where I Profumi found their niche with this upscale, pure madagascar vanilla fragrances (Comptoir Sud Pacifique …

This smells tropical to me, like the vanillas have some pina coladas and rum stashed away in the background. But mostly it's vanilla, and like a mix of cool, creamy vanilla paired with a warmer, burnt sugar sort of vanilla. I usually love vanilla, but this one doesn't work for me. The drydown of Vaniglia del Madagascar is too cloying on my skin, and the tropical edge makes me think of …Read more

This is a very clean vanilla. Like a vanilla mixed with soap or cleaner. I don't really know what I think of it yet. I love rich warm orchid vanillas and this is not that. Well, I am still on the search for the perfect vanilla. Any suggestions just let me now.

This review is not about i Profumi di Firenze, Vagniglia del Madagascar,but rather about one of its dupes that I read about here on the forum. The Coconut Hut's Vanilla Passion, which is suppose to be an exact dupe.
That being said, I absolutely LOVE this scent! All the reviewers who wrote about how sexy this scent was were right on. I would even go so far as to say that this is the …

Is it just me who smells chocolate instead of vanilla? I like this fragrance but not enough for me to want it. I thought that it was nice but one dimensional - all I smell is this very sweet almost chocolate-like scent and that's it. For me it lacks that spice in it that makes you want to keep smelling it. It is a "what you smell is what you get" fragrance nothing more, no spice …Read more

I'm really not sure what people are looking for in a vanilla scent, but this one is wonderful. I long ago had a perfume oil, cheap and no longer available, that was called Tahitian Vanilla. It was a clean, pure vanilla with an onset of what I can only called burnt cork, and it was fantastic on the skin. Smoky, creamy, clear and dark and somehow still vanilla, it was the best. This is the …Read more

If, like me, you never tire of vanilla notes, then you simply must give this fragrance a try. Madagascar vanilla is supposed to be the finest vanilla in the world and the vanilla notes in this fragrance are a deep, lush, decadent blend of vanilla orchid and vanilla bean. Mmmmm.

My HG fragrance...I never thought I could have an HG until I sprayed this on one day and was completely bowled over. Yes, it's predominantly vanilla. Plain vanilla, however, it is not. It smells warm, soft, like a caramel gourmand vanilla scent. What makes this different from the other 10000000 other vanilla fragrances out there, is the floral note. I didn't think vanilla and florals …Read more

I much prefer Zenzero to Vaniglia.

On my skin, Vaniglia is too overwhelmingly sweet. Ick. I got the same reaction with Zagara and Talco Delicato. I do not like smelling as if I just stepped out of a candy shop.

I was excited to try this since I like some of the other scents from this line. I was disappointed to find that this is too sugary. Almost doughy. I prefer a true vanilla extract scent. If you do too, try Aveda Vanilla Absolute Singular Oil.
