    Comments about Le Couvent Des Minimes Eau Des Missions Botanical Fragrance:

    Oh, I've been wanting Eau des Missions for so long. Now I have it (thank you Santa), and I've been wearing it all week. Why? It's perfect for the holidays - the combination of vanilla, cedar, myrrh, and a Chinese herb or two is as festive as Christmas cookies under a real evergreen tree. I am fonder of woody and resin scents than I am of vanilla, but this is vanilla showing that it can play well with others; Le Couvent des Minimes' speciality is botanical scents, after all. What their orangey interpretation of classic cologne (Eau des Minimes) is to summer, Eau des Missions is to winter...but I just might wear either any time of year.

      Like most I'm super sensitive with fragrances, and get headaches easily. I have had no reaction at all with this, and it's the best vanilla I have smelled in any fragrance. I even spray at night before bed for a comforting effect. I simply love it, and my husband does too.

            I love the subtlety of this fragrance. There is nothing worse than a perfume that enters a room before the person and never goes away! This scent is perfect as you smell it up close, which makes it more alluring! Scent is a personal extension and powerful signature of a person. This one has become mine.

            Comments about Le Couvent Des Minimes Eau Des Missions Botanical Fragrance:

            Having spent the last few years working my way through perfumes to find 'my scent', I'm astounded at having racked up more compliments and queries about what I'm wearing than for any other perfume.
            Light, subtle, warm and with a hint of the exotic.
            Vanilla is almost always a hit, but this perfume guides it away from Body Shop vanilla extract territory and adds a smokey complexity to it.
            This is now my new go to perfume. Can everyone else please stop buying it. Cheers.

            I am obsessed with this. I just bought this two weeks ago and I've used almost half the bottle. It's kind of embarrassing, actually, but I just love it! It's such a cozy slightly smokey vanilla scent, but not spicy. You can't go wrong with this, though it's pretty pricey considering the scent doesn't last very long. That being said, you don't have to worry about your perfume being too overpowering. It stays close to the skin.

              It has a vanilla forward smell, but overall it is a very unique scent. As soon as I received my package I spritzed in my hair, all might I was pulling my hair forward to smell it. When I spritz it on my clothes I go nose bound to it so I keep it in my hair, the occasional wiff cheers up my day :)

                Comments about Le Couvent Des Minimes Eau Des Missions Botanical Fragrance:

                So far this is my favorite of the Couvent Des Minimes fragrances. Normally not a huge fan of vanilla, but the combo of the vanilla and plants (I think mostly the myrrh) is just so intoxicating! I get so many compliments from men and women. Prefer to wear at night or cooler weather...I just the warm scent just reminds me of fireplaces and sweaters. Can't think of really any negatives. I've seen some others say its not long lasting and have not found that problem with this blend (maybe so with Eau Des Matines). And for under $40 I don't see how you can go wrong! Quickly became one of my signature scents!
