Most Helpful Positive Review Favorite vanilla!
I am so glad Ulta is carrying Lavanila now. The original is my favorite vanilla perfume in existence. It lasts forever and smells amazing. It's a very gown up vanilla that anyone can pull off. Lots of compliments and very unoffensive to everyone. It's a great signature scent and makes me feel so cozy. It's also free of animal ingredients and isn't tested on animals or sold in China (China has mandatory animal testing).
Most Helpful Critical Review Zero Stars
I had such high hopes for this.
Unfortunately it REAKS of old lady. It smells like the Skin-So-Soft that everyone thinks works as bug spray.
It does last long, which I would have put as a pro, if it didn't smell like my great aunt I genuinely gag around.
If you like true vanilla or just don't want to smell like a stuffy old lady doused in bug spray, DO NOT BUY THIS OVER PRICED TRASH
Reviewed by 42 customers A "MUST" for Vanilla-Lovers
Ellie B from Kansas
This is a 100% pure, Madagascar vanilla, creamy tonka bean, & soft heliotrope —- all three are frequently used in base or middle layers of perfumes or colognes today. This is timeless as it is natural and soft, and because it is an actual perfume, it bends to the wearer and becomes slightly personalized. Nothing artificial about this, but I get that it doesn't have the marketing of more artificial colognes or eau du parfum or toilettes that many people 25 and younger have become accustomed. It isn't a sophisticated statement, but it is not inappropriate in any setting. It is accessible for any age because of how it contains the most common bases but also in a pure form. If you love vanilla or just love to layer perfumes, this is one you should have in your collection.
Not the same as it used to be
Winter silver from SoCal
This was my go to. Sadly they seemed to have changed the formula. Latest bottle I received smelled nothing like it usually does, made me sneeze, was watery and much lighter in color.

Sweetrin from Florida
I bought this because I LOVE the deodorant version, but other than smelling like vanilla it's not very similar. This is a very strong, bold, musky style vanilla. Too bad it's only sold online, I'm sure many people but it blind and don't end up liking it.
An All-Time Favorite
MStr7 from Madison, WI
This is one of my all-time favorite vanilla scents. It has a little bit of spice to it, but it's still a very sweet, but sophisticated scent. I wish it was sold in brick and mortar beauty stores (at least the full size), but you can buy a travel-size to try too. The scent lasts a long time too. I'll put some on, and three days later, I can still smell it on my jacket or seatbelt in the car.
I love the perfume it smell good
Elaine from NY

Amanda from Santa Cruz
Smells amazing. I was hesitant to buy because of all the " old lady comments" but I'm glad that I did! Smells like a sweet vanilla flavor! (Fun fact vanilla attracts men ;)
smells like a grandma hug
Molly from Pennsylvania
...and it's not cute
love it - and so does everyone
Nana from Rockland County NY
I have been wearing LaVanila for years, starting when I was dealing with the public every day. Nobody ever said it was annoying - important, because many people are bothered by perfume. Recently, my teenage granddaughter asked if I would order it for her.
Wow, you smell good!
Bie from San Diego CA
I have allergies that keep me from wearing most perfumes but this one is delightful.
Beautiful vanilla scent
Babbs from FL
If you like vanilla scents you will love this fragrance. It is so natural and long lasting. Love it!
Always my go to!
Jordan from Charlotte, NC
I've been wearing Lavanila for yearsssss now. They have a few different scents but they're all vanilla based. It's a perfume you won't find many people wearing which is another reason I love it. They have great deodorant and body creams as well but I find myself always coming back to this perfume. It's definitely a distinct vanilla so if you don't like vanilla or sweet scents in general this most likely won't be for you but I love how long it's lasts and it's a more natural perfume so it doesn't irritate my skin. I get tons of compliments and a little goes a long way. I wear this all year round day and night. It's versatile & guys especially love it :-)
OLD LADY SMELL!
Sam from United States
This doesn't smell like sweet vanilla AT ALL. It smells very musky and dirty. If you're looking for a cool, sweet soft vanilla smell like a cupcake THIS ISN'T IT! It smelled so awful my nose wouldn't stop running and my eyes swelled. I do not reccomend.
Different than expected
Bacchante from Alaska
I find it hard to describe what sets this apart from other vanilla. There are many pure vanilla scents, both natural an artificial that lean floral, or gourmand, or incensey. This is muted without being creamy. It doesn't have the sugary screech of many vanillas, and so smells mature without the bakery gourmand or spicy lean I associate with perfumes people call mature. Not particularly strong. It's an odd one, but very agreeable. I wouldn't go far out of my way to get another bottle, but it's certainly the kind of thing you can wear around people who "hate perfume" without any trouble.
I would by this product again
K the globetrotter from Miami Fl
I love my Madagascar vanilla scent. I was nicely surprised to be able to find it again since I used to wear it years ago.
It's not too sweet nor too heavy scent...just love it.
My go to day fragrance
Liz from NY
This is my go to daily perfume.
The spray and rollerball smell very different
Laura from New York, NY
I had purchased the rollerball to test out this scent as I'm always looking for a good vanilla scent and fell in love with the rollerball. So, I figured let me buy the bigger bottle and spray but it smells totally different and is very disappointing. I will be going back to the rollerball for sure.
Not the "fresh" vanilla you think...
Musky Vanilla from Indiana
This has a very musky old school scent that I did not anticipate. Very mature compared to the more baked vanilla scent I thought it would be. The vanilla falls flat and really just leaves behind the musk. l don't reccomend for the price point.
kree from texas
I love this perfume I got a sample of it a couple years back and was so excited when u found out ulta carries this brand it last all day and smells heavenly i love it and got so many compliments on how nice I smell i will buy again
BEST PERFUME. SIMPLE AND SWEET.
Gigi from Irvine, CA
This is the best perfume ever. It smells simple and sweet. Just like vanilla and nothing more, nothing else. The perfectly delicious and crisp natural smell.
BEST VANILLA EVER !!!
LIZZARD PRINCESS from NEBRASKA
THIS IS THE ONLY VANILLA I WILL EVER USE !!! THERE IS NO VANILLA LIKE THIS VANILLA THAT HAS EVER BEEN !! THIS IS 1991 TO ME !
I would buy this product again
MomWife from Corydon, IN
2 small sprays lasts all day!
I had high hopes...
Silvi99 from Maryland
This perfume does not smell the best. I read the reviews and expected a nice, sweet vanilla fragrance. But what I got was terrible. It has hints of vanilla but then an overbearing "old lady" kind of scent takes over it and it's terrible. It may just be my chemistry though who knows. It will be returned nonetheless.
fav of all time
Alex from florida
this scent is for the people who LOVE vanilla. my chemistry works really well with it and it lasts all day on me and will linger on my clothes as well. i've used this perfume since middle school, the only complaint is that i wish they had a 3.4 oz or even bigger but you really don't need much to smell nice with this scent so it does last awhile. this perfume is also really good to mix with other scents, i've mixed this with chanel chance eau fraiche and it's my signature combo. it's great all around and i highly recommend to anyone. this vanilla is sweet but also sophisticated and earthy.
Loyal lavanila wearer for YEARS
Callily from Maine
I have been using this perfume for years after giving up chemicals and looking for a healthy alternative. I have had many many people compliment me on how nice I smell. This fragrance works very well with my chemistry. Not at all "cookie" smelling. It's very refined and earthy vanilla. Love the deodorant just as much. Both are perfect for sensitive skin like mine, and not at all over scented.
A great everyday fragrance
POM MOM from Virginia
A wonderful fragrance that everyone loves, I have had many compliments from men and women. I work in the medical field and prefer a light scent. It does not last long but they sell a travel sized roll on for touch ups.
