Loved it
I like that I didn’t smell any floral notes. The scent was Distinctly vanilla without being overly sweet. It’s an adult version of one of my teen fragrances.

Strong
I really like this one it smells like frosting but it’s so so strong. It could work as a room spray it’s so strong but once it settles it’s not quite as strong. Even though it’s a little overwhelming I still really like it!

I like the scent when it drys down, however the smell when just sprayed is cloying sweet. Smells almost like cotton candy at first.

I thought I liked vanilla but this one was just a little too much.
I don’t think I realized just how sweet this perfume is. I’m sure it’s for someone, but this one is just a little too heavy for me and every time I put it on I sneeze from the strong alcohol scent that does die down but is an assault on the nose at first.

Not meant for me
I got it bc people said it smelled like marshmallows on them. Was hoping it would be the same on me. Smelled like a faint smell of cigarettes and strongly of cloves and vanilla as the undertone, on my body chemistry. Rating 5 stars for accuracy of smell description.

The delicious creamy vanilla
This is an amazing scent. Most vanilla perfumes are either overly sweet or very powdery. However, this is that perfect creamy vanilla that I have always looked for. Love the addition of the wood smell in it.

Disappointed Vanilla was way out there
I think a good vanilla is difficult to compose i had high hopes but it smelled cloying and fake more like a room spray . For me Dior Addict edp is my kind of Vanilla note .

Vanille Absolu
This scent was way too strong! All you can smell is vanilla, which is suggested per the name; but this is a sickly sweet smell. Even one spray was too much. I couldn’t give it away, so we use it as a room spray in the bathroom! It definitely conceals any unwanted odors.

Sweet, but womanly
It is intense and quite sweet, but it has just enough spice and woodiness to it that denies adolescence. Not an everyday smell, much more sultry.

Pure Sugar
The opening is powerfully alcoholic. Then it turns into a perfume I don’t like. My sister thought something was baking in the oven. She said I smelled like “pure sugar.”

Sad
I always love a good vanilla scent and I wanted to love this but boy was it a let down. One of the scents was kind of overpowering but not the vanilla and I felt like I smelled like a marshmallow that’s been on fire for days. It was a let down to say the least.

Absolu Hit!!
Another gorgeous scent from Montale. This brand is now my absolute favorite. Smells exactly like the description, but I feel it’s a more grown up version of the vanilla sprays that we got from Avon or Bath and Body Works. Simply divine. If you want to smell like dessert get this. It is very sweet.

Warm Vanilla Sugar
I love the chocolate grease so much that I decided to try the vanille absolu. this fragrance reminds me of bath & body works warm vanilla sugar. I don't really get any hints of the spicy or woodsy elements on me. however it does smell like a great everyday perfume. Not as good as the chocolate greedy but they can't all be perfect

This has got to be one of the best things I've ever had the pleasure of smelling in my 33 years on the good lord's Green Earth. The best way I can describe this scent is think Warm Vanilla Sugar from B&B....but an "adulty" version. I will be purchasing a full size bottle.

This is the ONE!
This is literally only the second fragrance that I've tried from Scentbird and it's the winner. I know this is dramatic but I can probably stop looking now for my next new signature fragrance. This is the vanilla scent I've been searching for. Just the right amount of sweetness without a floral note to ruin the vanilla. The clove is the opening note on me and it's quite sharp at first (I would even say it's almost synthetic), but once it dries down the vanilla is just lovely. I've had people tell me I smell good, with someone even saying I smell like cakes. I personally don't think it smells like a bake sale because it's not that kind of sugary sweetness. Just a very simple but decadent vanilla with a hint of spice. I've already purchased a full size - no regrets!

Smells like the description but
This is one of the few perfumes I’ve found that really do smell like the description, but I didn’t like it. I’m more of a floral person but wanted to try something new. Vanilla is the main note, but you really can distinctly smell the cinnamon and clove and a woodsy, musky undertone. It’s too strong for me though and reminds me of a candle.

Funky after scent
It had a strong vanilla scent in the beginning, but an after scent of someone who had lit a match and then immediately blew it out is the best way to describe it.
