PG’s Felanilla is a favorite maybe because I’m not a big vanilla fan but I do love the smell of carmex lol
I’m still holding out for my first bottle of Le Lion. You’re burning through to your second!There are so many vanilla-laden scents here I don’t know i.e. yet to experience and a few I also love like Shalimar, Cuir Beluga, Vanille Insensée.
I don’t really consider Le Lion predominantly a vanilla scent but it’s the way the vanilla comes up through the other notes that is so insidiously magical.
The only problem is that while reading all the delicious descriptions I failed to notice the level of Le Lion going down in the bottle. Now there are only 3cm/1.18” left and I will very soon have to get some more.
Okay adding this to my "to buy" list for November and it'll be my first dip into YSL's private line should be fun.YSL - Babycat !!
This stuff… is so good! Like a Smokey deep vanilla. I dunno how to explain it but it’s simply incredible especially if you like vanilla!
Vanilla for me is just one of this notes that I simply like, it’s nice. I don’t love it or hate it. But how Babycat was done I want to stick my nose in it every 5 seconds while wearing.
This is one of my favorite fragrances, but it's more lily than 'vanilly' to me.For a left field vanilla, seek out Hermes Vanille Galante, the strangest take on vanilla I've experienced.
I love:Calling all vanillaphiles!
There are so many scents out there with wonderful vanilla notes, notes that can be quite different one from the other. Some are sweet, some are not. There seems to be a vanilla for every taste. (No pun intended.)
My favourite vanilla scent is Le Lion de Chanel. It is of the unsweet variety that wafts subliminally under the other notes and keeps the whole perfume elevated in a heavenly aura around the wearer.
Which perfume(s) have that particular vanilla that entrances you?
