Most Helpful Positive Review BEST VANILLA FRAGRANCE EVER!
This is the BEST vanilla fragrance that you will EVER wear! I got the rollerball to try it out cause that was all that was sold in my local Ulta and went and bought the full size online the very same day!! It is a pure vanilla fragrance so you can use it to compliment other body sprays for an extra added vanilla touch. A few of my favorites that I like to pair it with is Vanilla Bean Noel from Bath and Body Works, Warm Vanilla Sugar from Bath and Body Works and Almond and Vanilla from Bath and Body Works. If you are wondering what type of Vanilla it smells like, it reminds me of a vanilla extract scent but not a little girl scent. This one is definitely a womanly sexy type of smell! I get compliments every single day that I wear it and it lasts ALL DAY LONG! definitely my signature fragrance now! I absolutely love it! The only complaint that I have is that the big spray bottle is not sold at any stores near me so I have to order it off of online!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not Much Vanilla To It...
Let me preface this with my preferences: I've always been very partial to fruity + sweet scents, but I like switching it up and can appreciate a wide variety of formulas - from spicy, to warm, to fresh, to subtle, etc. I'm *almost* obsessed with vanilla, mostly. [eating or smelling it !] But I have my limits with it. I also can't stand many powdery and super floral smells in most formats of products.
I can't detect much vanilla - be it the raw + pure kind, or the sugary + cheap kind - at all in this fragrance... I have to really look for it every time I smell it. [on my clothes, from the container, or even on my skin] I can imagine the characteristics being there, so I use it to layer with others that can run a bit powdery to 'warm' them up a little. But on its own, it seems the vanilla + warmth is overtaken by something else in the formula that makes it much more sharply musky, much like an essential oil. Like when yu accidentally whiff in too much of an essential oil and yu get that sharp, identifying characteristic they all seem to share, I feel like that's what I'm having a hard time getting through and it's so concentrated that it never settles and it takes on an almost 'potpourri'-style-scented cheap soap, carried by rubbing alcohol.
But that's just me and my senses, and I can see how it'd be appreciated by others that probably wouldn't detect what I do. It sounded like a great sophisticated vanilla, unfortunately not for me.

So strong. I have to use the tiniest amount (only dotting it on once) or it is nauseating. doesn't smell like vanilla, smells more musk-y than anything else
My favorites - all scents
Deb_J from FL
Long lasting, subtle, healthy, beautiful.
I'm a fan
Naws72 from Utah
Ok. Truth be told, I love all things vanilla so obviously I'm going to be a fan of this scent. It's definitely vanilla. Sort of "powdery" (hope that makes sense). Soft and subtle. I love it. Just wished it lasted longer
Light & fragrant
Dade from DFW
This goes well as a base to most fragrances to provide that signature scent.
I pair this with most of my fragrances or wear alone. It smells heavenly and I always receive compliments when I wear it.
It lasts a fairly good amount of time for an EDP.
I use this with the Ulta almond oil and it is luxurious.
britt37 from Texas
Alright product and packaging but the scent is odd. It doesn't smell like fresh vanilla or vanilla flowers, it smells like a heavy vanilla candle for your living room. So it doesn't smell awful but it smells strange on the skin. My family members didn't appreciate the scent either
Perfect vanilla scent
Jess from Connecticut
I fell in love with a sample of a ridiculously expensive vanilla perfume and have been searching for something close that won't break the bank. This perfume is it! It smells just like vanilla bean and tonka, and I love that it is "clean" as well. It doesn't have the "old lady effect" others were describing with me luckily, and I definitely plan on buying it again.

Smells amazing lasts throughout the day
I would buy this product again.
Chris from Indiana
I put this on after a shower or before going out and the scent lasts for quite some time.
Scent is so me!!
Carol from Parker, CO
Nice light scent, not over whelming. Will need touch-up.
Blessed2teach from Mississippi Gulf Coast
Students and adults at school love it! Haven't had any complaints from those who can't handle traditional perfumes worn by others either which was the main reason for my switching to this brand.
Margie from New Jersey
Will be repurchasing!
ko from Houston
For me, this is my ideal scent. It's sort of homey, but in such a good way. It definitely catches attention, but is not overbearing. Basically, no one would be unhappy catching a whiff of you with this on. It's a warm vanilla scent that is not too overpowering and I have already gotten compliments on it. Love it!
Shiraz from Austin Texas
Every time I wear this someone compliments me on how good I smell- without fail. It's so simple yet so amazing at the same time! Smells kind of like vanilla extract, so less cookie like and more like actual vanilla. I own every scent in this line but this one is my favorite.
My absolute FAVORITE Parfum!!!!
Tina from Bastrop, TX
I wear Lavanila EVERYDAY!! Its not to overpowering it's just right🙂
Litlred from NH
I was given this as a gift from my sister who knows how much I love vanilla, and I love it. It is strong when first applied, but mellows out to a warm vanilla scent. This isn't Vanilla Fields (no thanks) it's much warmer of a scent and not over powering. Can definitely be used to enhance other vanilla products.
Get Pretty from 49512
I wanted to love this, because I am searching for a cruelty-free perfume and I like vanilla. It was just too musky. Even with the rollerball, it stayed on for a very long time. But the scent was a little "old and musky" for me.
NannaBananna from Litlle Rock, Arkansas
It's such a beautiful smell that almost everyone I've met can agree on. I love it, I wish the deodorant
didn't break me out so bad or I would have it too.
Stephanie from Indiana
I decided to risk ordering a perfume online after checking that my local Ulta did not carry it in store. I like vanilla and thought it was a pretty safe bet and there are virtually no cruelty free fragrances anywhere. I was sooo wrong. This smells nothing like vanilla. It has a strong powdery musky smell (think Avon/grandma) Against my better judgement I applied to my pulse points to see if the dry down improved. Still not a hint of vanilla
Mikhaila from CT
One of my favorite perfumes
The best vanilla scent that lasts!
Yoga Wife from Austin
Smells like pure vanilla that's it nothing else! Its very sweet and pretty smelling. I would highly recommend if you love a 100% vanilla scent that lasts and does not smell cheap!
Old Lady Perfume
ksc616 from Florida
I ordered this perfume online because I love vanilla scents. To me, this did not smell like vanilla at all. It was very overpowering and smelled like an old lady.
Not at all what I was expecting....
Lifelong vanilla user : ) from Somewhere in Pennsylvania
I was excited to try a new vanilla fragrance as I always wear something vanilla based. I know that fragrance can smell different on everyone, but this did not work for me...at...all. I was hoping that the overpowering powdery smell that reminded me of visiting my grandmother in an old age home would dissipate, but unfortunately it did not. I actually did not smell one hint of vanilla on my skin. I even asked my husband and kids to smell it and they said it smelled pretty musky and back in the day Avon powdery with no hint of vanilla. I had high hopes, but this definitely did not work with my body chemistry.
Perfect everyday fragrance
Miss Lisha from Florida
I love Vanilla and this one delivers with a subtle, spiced scent that lasts all day. I get a lot of compliments.
This is NOT a pure vanilla fragrance!!!
AD from Iowa
This fragrance is described as a pure vanilla fragrance... it definitely is not and smells like something my grandma would like (she's awesome, but it's not for me). Neither I nor my boyfriend could stand it. This fragrance smells very musky and floral... pretty disappointed and will be returning.
Becky from Flowood
I wanted a light, roll on application of vanilla scent. I like it more for daytime.
