Way to sweet and flat!
I didn't like this sickly sweet one-note fragrance that lasted only about 2 hours tops. It's my first mainly vanilla fragrance. I hope not all such fragrances are so cloying. If anyone has any recs for a good, well-balanced vanilla fragrance, PLMK!

If I could marry this fragrance I would; it smells soooo good and it blends well with my ph. Vanilla is a natural fragrance that most people are familiar with but this scent is more grown up and luxurious smelling than just the vanilla scent you're use to smelling when baking cookies.

Lovely smell, but my body didn’t like it.
This smells wonderful and rich and very vanilla forward, but every time I’ve applied it, it seemed to burn my sinuses and lungs. I could feel it staying in my sinuses for hours, and it made me cough. I’m not sure if there’s a certain chemical or if I’m just sensitive to this particular perfume.

Love it!!
This scent is my new favorite, and I'm extremely selective. Obviously with a name like Vanille Absolu the primary fragrance is vanilla. It isn't overpowering though. I can also smell some other homestyle spices that makes me feel like I'm wrapped in my family's love for the holidays. It manages to give that feeling without making me smell like a cookie. I also love that I catch whiffs of it long after applying it instead of being nose-blind. It is nothing less than fabulous. I highly recommend it.

Not My Favorite Montale
This isn't a bad fragrance, but it smells almost exactly like Montale's Chocolate Greedy (which I love) without the depth. I like sweet scents, but this is too sweet even for me. Chocolate Greedy has a warmth to it that tempers the sweetness.

As a lifetime vanilla lover, I have to say that this is by far the most sophisticated vanilla I have ever come across. It is sweet but refined, long-lasting, and I will never be buying another. It is simply beautiful. I have found "it."

Gourmand Treat
This is for sweet scent lovers. It smells like vanilla with a hint of cinnamon and tobacco. I find it to be quite long lasting (but I've seen some express otherwise). I prefer it in cooler weather and think it may be too overbearing for the summer heat. Wear this if you want someone to find you irresistible.

Syrupy Vanilla
It starts off with a fruity note that I think is similar to a dehydrated strawberry before eventually drying down to a dusty vanilla. It has a sweet incense like scent. It's kind of syrupy smelling.
