This is a dry but sweet vanilla, some vanilla extract hints to it. I find it to be a really nice vanilla and ripe for layering. If you aren’t really a vanilla fan, or if you prefer vanilla less sweet than this, then consider something lighter.

Relaxing Minimalistic Fragrance
Especially great for those moments in life when one needs a warm hug and to feel loved and comforted! IMO, It is a vanilla lovers dream for its unabashed simplicity! On my skin it started somewhat sweet changing to a rich cozy and smoky essence over time that I found very relaxing! To the discerning nose, this is Definitely perfume quality not at all like the cheap Vanilla scents readily available at drug and big box stores. I was surprised at how long this scent lasted (6+ hrs) since vanilla fragrance typically wears off quickly. Kudos to the creators and master blenders.

Nice but I don't think I'd buy the full size scent, spicy, didn't last, everyday, fall/winter
I was really looking forward to receiving this perfume and although I did like, it wasn't quite what I thought. It was a bit spicier than I anticipated. I found that the scent didn't really last. I think it's great for the office or everyday, more a fall/winter scent to me. I would choose something else for night time or going out. Overall I would rate it maybe 7 out of 10.

Too Sweet!
I saw some great reviews on this fragrance and was super excited to try it out. Much to my disappointment, it has an overwhelming scent of cotton candy. Multiple people told me it “smells like a candy shop”. If sweet is your thing, go for it. But as a grown woman, it reminds me of those body sprays we used when we were preteens.

Excellent
A wonderful choice for the true vanilla lover. Appropriately sweet without being cloyingly gourmand, with balanced notes of spice and a hint of smoke to round out a robust but not over the top scent. There was also no powdery dry down with this one, which I appreciated, and a decent sillage. I was very pleased to receive this as my first subscription selection and would definitely consider purchasing again. Nothing not to love here except the longevity of the scent wasn't what I worldview liked, but that seems to be a problem across the board for me so no points deducted.

I have been looking for a replacement for my favorite perfume dark vanilla. I saw this and thought I would try it. I want to love it but it does not have the woodsy smell to it that dark vanilla had. It is just different layers of vanilla. Smells very lovely but it just isn't what I was looking for.

This is great!
I love this perfume. Certainly vanilla is the main note but it is kind of a smoky vanilla, not super sweet. It is a very soothing smell to me. It lasts all day on me but it is a very close scent. I smell it when I undress at night and it still smells great. I would consider this a year round everyday scent. It is a warm scent, not fresh, but it is not so heavy that it should be a winter only scent. I will definitely repurchase this one.

Too sugary
I wanna start off by saying that "I LOVE VANILLA". I am obsessed with vanilla scents. Anything that contains it is automatically good in my book. Lately, I've been growing up and moving away from the sweet vanilla fragrances. This scent is way too childish in my opinion. It literally smells like cake and it is way too sugary, in my opinion. If you leans towards more subtle scents, this one is NOT for you.

Gorgeous, Pure Vanilla Perfection
Finally, a beautiful, pure vanilla perfume that feels rich, deep, creamy, and grown up. Leaves you smelling irresistible and sexy, I have gotten so many compliments while wearing this and people sniffing my hair or leaning in just to catch a hint of this scent. This is not a cheap body spray vanilla scent that most people are used to nor is it like wearing pure vanilla extract. It is never too much or overwhelming and it is not cloying and/or sickly sweet. It does not seem to last long enough on my skin, so I have sprayed my sweaters, coat linings, and my hair with this sexy scent. I only need a little though, I am not just continually spraying myself. Two long sprays and I am in heaven. I can smell three different levels of vanilla immediately after spraying and for about 15 minutes as it drys down. First, it is warm, spicy, almost peppery, and rich, as the cloud of scent descends upon you, then it envelops you with a very creamy, buttery sweetness, that almost sends you into a pure bliss state, but before you are allowed to close your eyes and submit, you catch a whiff sultry, sophisticated, sexy smoky spice that is the perfect end to longest single note vanilla perfume ever. It is wonderful worn every day, casually, to the office, date night, worn alone or paired with another perfume that may need the something special this vanilla adds to anything really. I love trying sweet and dark vanillas, chocolates, coffees and caramel perfumes and I want perfume that does not smell cheap and/or like everyone else in the room. I want my perfume to rock my outfit, occassion, and my mood...I want to escape, elevated by beautiful, intense notes that I love. I do not want to be dragged down with stale, heavy notes of overpowering perfumes. I love this gorgeous and very well done single note vanilla by Molinard. I will most definitely be purchasing a full size bottle and looking at their other scents in the future. If you love vanilla scents, please give this one a try and I do not think you will be disappointed. I have used this with Prada Candy and with Angel...OMG! In my opinion, it takes the patchouli that is overwhelming on me and tones it to just the right amount of warmth and sexiness and makes it wearable for me. I am so glad I tried this one! Great during the holidays, but will work in any season. I am loving it while it is cold, but in the South it could be 80 degrees in the middle of January, so I can tell it works in the heat of Spring/Summer as well. I do see the Fall/Winter months as the perfect time though for this one.

Starts nice, then goes all "car wash air freshener."
Cloying is probably the kindest word. This is part cheap car air freshener, part flea market vanilla incense. If "hanging out with the wrong crowd" had a scent, Vanille would be it, minus the stale beer and cigarettes.

Candy sweetness
I usually gravitate towards scents that are sweet and have that smell like you can eat it. A lot of fragrances bother my allergies so these are always my safe zone. Plus who doesn’t like to smell yummy! This is sweet like candy, with a classic vanilla bean kind of scent. Almost cotton candy-ish if you will. It was very light when I sprayed it on, so I was worried it wouldn’t last, but the it seems to hold up pretty well.

Beautiful
This has quickly become one of my favorite perfumes... creamy and sweet smelling. I get stopped by strangers saying how good I smell. It also pairs well with other perfumes that need a little sweetness.. love love love this one!

Sweet but not sickly
I love Molinard scents - Vanille Fruit is my usual go-to, especially for work because it is never too strong or offensive. This is sweet but slightly sexier. I love that it is flirty and fun, and my boyfriend loves it.
