A beautiful, light vanilla touched with musk. I love Warm Vanilla Sugar but I actually like this more, or at least as much, in a different way.

I received this in a gift set along with the shower gel and body cream. It's described as fresh vanilla bean, sweet praline and warm vanilla milk. I like it because it is a very wearable vanilla - not too sweet or foody, just very fresh. I would repurchase.

This is a nice true vanilla fragrance scented body lotion. It is not overly sweet or foody, just a basic vanilla. It moisturizes nicely and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth, even during the cold weather days. I like to use the shower gel and body splash with this lotion.

This is a nice basic vanilla. It's sweet, but not overly sweet like some of the frosting vanilla scents. It's warm and inviting. I normally don't go for vanillas, but this one is really nice. The scent lasts quite a while on my skin especially when I wear the body splash too.

I tested this a few weeks ago, liked it, but wasnt blown away by it.
I love fragrance of all sorts, byt my search for a lovely neutral vanilla with a little depth has been not so sucessful, VBN, smells great but it's a little too foody and burnt..but I am cautiously optimistic that I have found my HG(this is described as pure vanilla, a touch of praline, and a vanilla milk)
Finally, I decided to make the purchase, and I bought the wash, cream, and there was a special so I got the EDT as well. Well I love it. It smells lovely and light and very inobtrusive...My significent other has deemed it as "the perfect scent..period"
And, it layers perfectly with every fragrance I own for the days I want a little more oomph, and stands easily alone on the days I dont want to wear a heady fragrance...
I love love love this..If BBW ever discontinues this I will kill them.

The quality of Bath and Body Works lotions/creams is normal--nothing special, but does an acceptable job of moisturizing. The scent of this lotion is wonderful--warm and soothing without knocking you over with sweetness. I prefer it over the Warm Vanilla Sugar because it sometimes can be to strong and sweet. This vanilla is also more "workplace friendly" and I even use the Healing Hand Cream at work.

So disappointing! Practically a clone of WVS...this one has lots of musk, too. I was expecting a fresh, sweet vanilla after reading all the reviews here...nope, there's nothing 'fresh' about it at all.

I love WVS, and return to it time and again...however, there's no reason to buy this scent at all since they are so closely related.

I prefer Warm Vanilla Sugar by far. The Fresh Vanilla smells much more like a coconut scent to me, but not a true coconut. It reminds me of the Demeter angel food cake scent (which is also heavy on the coconut note).

Just like the name says, it IS "fresh vanilla". Much lighter than Warm Vanilla Sugar, which I found to be a little too heavy. I have received compliments on this when layered with the shower gel and the body splash, and it stays all day. I even received a compliment from my sister, who HATES anything vanilla. So there you go. Good stuff.

This is definitely the fresh sister to the WVS scent. I think it kinda smells like the Rice Bran Shea scent that BBW discontinued, but that's just me. I wouldn't say that this is my staple vanilla lotion. Vanilla Bean Noel is my favorite by far!
