Montale Vanille Absolu description

Is there no more sinful and alluring scent than vanilla? The ultimate “come hither” note in perfume – promising both sensuality and innocence, sweetness and debauchery, and impossible to say “no” to.And what’s worse is that it seduces other notes as much as our senses. Vanilla is right at home no matter what notes are around it in a perfume – bright, tangy citrus or smoky, exotic spices all shine…

It’s cloyingly sweet. I prefer to mellow out spicier scents with this one, as opposed to wearing it alone.

Best Vanilla scent
I’ve tried at least 8 different vanilla scents from various makers and this one really stole my heart, even better than my previous fav Vanillary from Lush. It smells warm and comforting and it blends well with my other fav citrusy fruity favs. Super highly recommend to anyone who likes gourmand vanilla-y scents

Not for everyone
This fragrance is very sweet smelling to me. I usually don't wear that kind of perfume and my husband thinks it's too cloying on me but I just cant help but love it. it smells like vanilla and cotton candy. I'm a huge cotton candy fan and this brings back the feeling of being a kid but in a grown up scent. It's fun and different, not a go to for everyday but when you do wear it it will bring a smile to your face and put you in a playful mood.

As a man I love this scent!
I have loved the Montale fragrances and really enjoyed the Chocolate Greedy. Even though this is listed as female, I had to try it. Upon spraying this I fell in love. The sweet vanilla scent reminded me of a dessert. It's a great compliment when someone says you smell good enough to eat. The fragrance doesn't last too long for myself but fades into a light, pleasant scent with a hint of spice. I like to wear this in the fall/winter seasons.

Vanilla Cream Soda
I was startled by how quickly this one reached my nose. BAM! VANILLA CREAM SODA! Like straight vanilla extract. Very sweet. I imagine that people will be able to smell this one from some distance. It takes a while, but the vanilla does mellow out a little. I might smell the cloves, but it's like 99.9% vanilla. I wish this one had more cloves/cinnamon, but still like it.

I really LOVE the Chocolate Greedy, so I figured I'd try out this one. I've worn it a few times and it is okay but doesn't hold a candle to Chocolate Greedy. However, a vanilla lover might think this one is fabulous!

Amazing!
I picked this for my first month of my subscription and his one of the best perfumes I’ve ever used! Anything vanilla is good but this is like pure vanilla which I always have a hard time finding because there’s always a bunch of other scents added. This is perfect! I get so many compliments. Definitely buying the full size sooner or later!

Sweet and cozy
Simple yet elegant, warm, comforting; I wore this throughout last winter and I love it. Vanilla Absolu has gotten compliments from both family and strangers. I went out to a favorite ramen place, and our server said I smelled fantastic. (Had only applied one spray, which is clearly sufficient if noticed in a busy restaurant!) On my skin: Top: vanilla extract, cream, plums or apricots Middle: creamy and woody vanilla incense Base: vanilla pudding It has decent sillage for several hours even in very cold, dry conditions, before receding into a soft skin scent that lasts all day and makes me feel cozy. Heat and humidity—or even just rushing around enough to work up a sweat in cool weather —increase projection and strength quite a bit, but This is more wearable in summer than most sweet gourmands.

Vanilla lovers rejoice!
I’m reviewing this product almost 2 months after receiving it, so much of what I’m saying is also off my memory of last months delivery...this scent is perfect for those who love vanilla-it’s very strong & very true to its name! (Absolute Vanilla for sure) That said, I plan on wearing this layered with another fragrance to tone it down a little....as much as I love sweet smells this was too much by itself for me-I like my vanilla mixed in with citrus/fruitier scents and or mixed with any of the white flower scents (think lilies, tuberose!) so I couldn’t rate this a solid 5 (perfection) because that wouldn’t be accurate in my opinion...but if you want a strong vanilla-this would be your “go to”perfume. I definitely will use it again but I’m going to combine it with another fragrance to customize it a bit...

Absolutely Dreamy and Calming!
One spritz was all it took and I felt warm and calm! Completely erased anxious feelings after a stressful day... Normally scents don’t last long with my dry skin even though I layer them with unscented lotion or cream. Not so with Montale’s Vanille Absolu! 24 hours later I can still smell this dreamy scent. Purchased as an add on after exploring many of the designer perfumes with vanilla. Especially perfect for fall and winter! Even though I find it calming, it doesn’t make me sleepy, unlike many other perfumes with vanilla!

Still searching for my perfect vanilla...
I've tested this out a few times now, and I'll say it may be worth a try if you're willing to let it develop for a few hours. The first hour or two this smells like straight talcum powder and alcohol on my skin. After a while it does become a pleasant, albeit linear, vanilla scent. If you're looking for a woodsy or less gourmandish vanilla I would suggest Vanille Incensee by Atelier Cologne instead.

It’s ok.
It’s an OK scent, I have issues with the initial application because it irritates my nose for a few minutes when I spray it. It off the bat doesn’t really smell like vanilla. It’s more of a warm home smell after it sits, it’s nice but just the application just... ugh doesn’t work for me.

Grown up vanilla scent!
At first spray, it hit my nose wrong and I didn’t think I was going to love it. But, I let it sit on my skin for a moment and realized it’s really beautiful- definitely smell the vanilla but it’s more of mature, warm scent verses the vanilla pop sugary scents were all extremely familiar with. This is a gorgeously made - Sensually designed fragrance-I’d even call it - sexy spice Now it’s not what I would wear everyday nor would it be MY signature scent but- if you love vanilla, you gotta try it

This scent is the best vanilla fragrance I have ever used. I had it on and was washing dishes in the kitchen when my husband came in and asked what smelled so good? He looked in the oven to see what I was baking and was pleasantly surprised to find it was me. Its sweet in a refined sort of way and has excellent staying power. Highly recommend.

Nice vanilla scent
It smells like vanilla with slight muskiness and there is a little bit of pepper. It does have a little bit of powdery smell which is the only thing I don't like. It smells strong at first then fades but still has some scent. It lasts moderately long. It reminds me of an improved expensive version of a vanilla body spray I used to use as a teenager.

Pretty nice
I wasn't sure what to expect with the scent, but it sort of reminds me of Pink Sugar. It has a similar scent on me, but with a very slight floral (nothing overpowering or headache inducing). I actually like the scent, though I'm wondering if some are put off by sweet smells as apparently it smells like cake on me. So, if you're not into a super sweet scent, this may not be for you. If you are like me and it's all you can wear, because florals cause headaches, this might be what you're looking for.

This is the perfect vanilla scent for me. It was sweet, but not sickengly so. I also had Comptoir Sud Pacifique’s “Vanille Extreme” in the same month’s order as I’ve been really liking vanilla scents lately and wanted to try a few different ones, and I greatly prefer this scent. It was noticeably stronger, lasted longer, and the scent is just so well balanced with all the different notes. Love it.

Complicated
First of all, my impression of this scent, is that it is a sophisticated vanilla scent. I do enjoy the scent of this. And this is the first scent from my subscription that my husband actually complimented! So I was thrilled! We used to live above a cigar shop and that smell, not the smell of smoke, but the smell of the cigars would waft up. My husband enjoyed that cigar shop. The spicy and vanilla notes stand out! This smells almost exactly like a little vanilla cigar! It's a lovely and almost reminiscent scent. I have found that if I spray it on my skin in the am, I will still get wafts of the smell throughout my workday and into the night. It is quite strong when you immediately put it in and then I would say mid-afternoon It fades. But like I said, there's still some wafts. However, another splash mid-day, if wanted, is an easy task. I will be saving this scent for the days that I feel like reminiscing with my husband or for a day at home when I just want to feel cozy and warm. I have worn it to work. Possibly a scent to wear for a holiday.

a bit harsh at first but a lovely vanilla
I absolutely love vanilla-based fragrances, a simple but strong vanilla is sexy and sophisticated and wonderful for all seasons. I was thoroughly impressed by Montale's Vanille Absolu, which I ordered specifically because I wanted a vanilla-heavy fragrance. My only complaint is that when you first spray it on there is a very harsh, alcoholic smell accompanied by extremely strong clove. This gives it the unfortunate scent of a dentist's office. However, after just a couple minutes it softens into a sexy, warm scent. It's instantly recognizable as vanilla but isn't flat or bland at all when accompanied by spicier notes of cinnamon and clove. It's very bold, which I love. All in all, an excellent fall/winter fragrance for vanilla lovers, as long as you can bear the harsh beginnings.

Ugh.
Too heavy on the vanilla. Smells like a cheap Bath and Body works scent. Never again!

You order something called "Vanille Absolu," and don't expect it to contain a lot of vanilla? Wow ok...

My serious FAVORITE scent. I get compliments on this every time i wear it. I feel more confident wearing this scent! It smells mostly like vanilla, but not in the bath and body way, it's way more strong and it smells expensive- if you know what i mean.

Fresh baked cookies
Warm vanilla but not overpowering, this scent smells like cookies freshly baked out of the oven. Perfect for fall or winter it's a cozy scent that I really enjoy wearing.

Love it
I love a vanilla scent and this one is one of my favs. It smells sweet but not over powering. I also love this scent because it doesn't smell cheap or artificial. It has a light not too heavy smell but, will last on the skin all day.

Meshes with my chemistry perfectly
A great fragrance in vanillas wear well on you. Everywhere I go people tell me I smell good. This fragrance also has great longevity (which seems to be missing with so many fragrances).

Too sweet
Was hoping for a more subtle and complex vanilla fragrance, with the wood and spice notes. However, this just smells like over the top sweet vanilla. Not what I was looking for.

Like a sexy toasted marshmallow
I love montale's vanilla. It has a strong vanilla scent but it's paired with other notes that lend more sophistication. I asked for and received a full size for Christmas. I do think the retail price is unreasonably expensive though.

Montale, you have my heart!
Vanille Absolu is SO good.If you love a sweet/bakery type of smell this is the one! To me it smells like marshmallow with a hint of chocolate. All you really need is one spray and also if you moisturize your skin before applying it will last SOOO long. My tip if any perfume is too strong, try putting lotion on and spraying your body before putting on clothes. All the amazingness without being to forward on top of clothes.

Imaginary perfume
I assume this perfume smells amazing? I carefully chose this fragrance and took the time to read the reviews. I pondered for twenty minutes between two perfumes... it never arrived. Just like the imaginary responses that I have received back apologizing for my inconvenience or nonexistent perfume. Now that I realize that this company likes to play games, I’ll send Monopoly money next time to pay for the perfume I won’t receive. Don’t forget to stop in jail, because that’s where your company belongs! P.S. I’m going to give this perfume 5 stars because it’s not their fault that ScentBird can’t work a business

Same issue! I have 2 subs. It took 8 weeks to get INCORRECT perfumes on both. I canceled and they kept taking money for perfume I wasn't getting. There is no good communication with this company. Just email and they send template responses and don't address your issues. There's no calling them. I finally got refunded via PayPal. I'm just here seeing if anything improved. I guess not. Thanks for posting this!

Nice!
This is a long-lasting fragrance with great sillage. It is unique for a vanilla scent...not juvenile or boring. It's spicy vanilla. The cloves, cinnamon, and whatever else is in there, make it a bit overwhelming for the first minute...but quickly settles to a delicious aroma that sticks around all day. I get compliments every time I wear it.

Girlfriend, I'm still awaiting perfumes from September, October, and November! ALL PAID FOR IN THE RESPECTIVE MONTHS! I'm exceedingly upset...even angry. They have put a total of $20 into my ecommerce account, AS IF I would actually purchase anything more from these inept people before my account is completely up to date...maybe not even then! UNBELIEVABLE business practices.

Funny you should mention that the same thing just happened to me September, October and November money was taken out and I did not receive my shipments. I recently moved, changed my address 3 times in their system it did not take apparently. Then I finally received September and October. And was told I was going to be charged $5 for re-shipping for November, I told them I don't see why I have to pay again. Finally I received November!!! (No extra charge) I really like this program they have we can try it before you buy it everything was smooth sailing until they moved locations and I tried to change my address. It is very difficult trying to find a way to get ahold of somebody but I did not stop until I found somebody!!!! Good luck!

Rip off
@scentbird you owe me 3 products or $35.00 for November! I paid at the end of October when I upgraded to 3 products, for November! You took my money & now your saying I need to pay for November! I have proof from my bank! They are also investigating you, they seen my scent bird account and it shows I need to pay! And it shows in my bank account that you did take the funds from my account for November!!!! And they are also going to press the issue if you do not ship the products or give me my money!!! You should be ashamed of yourself for doing this to people! If I had known your company was a huge scam I would have never signed up!!!!! And I’ve sent multiple emails and you still haven’t responded!!

Smells good
I love vanilla fragrance and this one is great. It is sophisticated and the spice notes give it depth but they are subtle. Not overly sweet like some vanilla fragrances. I enjoy it but wish it lasted longer. It’s a nice choice to mix with other fragrances

Vanilla
This I was told by one of my friends makes me smell like vanilla coffee creamer. It's a nice basic vanilla. Doesn't last super long or throw hard.

Love
Vanilla perfume is a favorite of mine and this one is heavenly. It’s got a nice mix of subtle spice along with a woodsy warmth mixed in making the vanilla smell rich. It stays close to the skin like a warm hug. This is similar to ‘Montale Cafe Intense’ without the rose note, (other perfume from Montale that is heavenly). It doesn’t last as long as Montale Cafe Intense but is still wonderful. I also wear Molinard Vanille -I have a large bottle. I would purchase a large bottle of this Montale Vanilla Absolute if it was more affordable.

Cotton Candy meets Marshmellow
This perfume is a bit musky but not overwhelmingly so. It's a bit sweeter than I thought it would be which disappoints me since I was looking forward to a stronger cinnamon and clove scent. The description is impressive and it was fun to narrate, however. Not amazing but not bad.
