4.2 out of 5
Yummy, rich, true-to-its-name vanilla. One of the best I've ever smelled, and I'm obsessed with perfumes!
It starts off with a fruity note that I think is similar to a dehydrated strawberry before eventually drying down to a dusty vanilla once it dries down. It has a sweet incense like scent. It's kind of syrupy smelling.
Just a nice vanilla scent, but not a artificial vanilla scent....very nice i could see it worn on all ages
One of my favorite vanilla scents. Warm and sexy.
Love the fragrance of Vanille Absolut (vanilla is my signature), but it doesn't last very long. Needs refreshing on my body after 3 hours.
This is ok. It’s too sweet for my liking. I do smell the vanilla which I usually like.
Warm and cozy
Ever since I tried Montale’s Chocolate Greedy, I’ve been a fan of gourmands. Can’t keep from sniffing my wrists!
love love love smells very similar to kayali vanilla very long lasting i went to sleep and woke up and could still smell it faintly on my wrist
Wonderful! I cannot say how much i love this scent! I get compliments daily!
This has such a wonderful smoky vanilla aroma. It drys down beautifully!
Beautiful vanilla with a smoky background!
so sweet, reminds me of sugar cookies or something earm n sweet... Doesn't last very long, but really nice scent, makes me feel cozy
Not the true vanilla I was expecting. Good, but not great.
I loved this so much. it's a bit strong, but sooo good.
Wonderful woodsy spicy scent. I LOVE it!
Smells delish- warm vanilla
Since I’ve received this scent I stopped wearing all the other ones I have it’s my new favorite. It smells amazing and lasts forever. I swear I’ve washed clothing and can still smell it. Love love love
The notes that were noticed: vanilla, pure non fragrance smellLongevity: most of the dayCompliments: lotsReminiscent of: United Emirates company "ChocoMusk" found on Amazon. it's an oil instead of a spray. Shipping: quick and packaged wellI love Montale products and will be ordering this
This smells just like it says Vanilla Absolutely! It smells exactly like vanilla extract. So you will smell like a cookie! It is a great everyday scent light sweet and not overpowering.
Nice strong vanilla scent
Smells like vanilla
pleasantly surprised. Smells sweet
Warm, cake-like vanilla with just a hint of musk at dry down to balance it out.
Edging out Vanille Extreme
Love this, very vanilla, that gives you warm fresh cookie vibes. 🤗
Best vanilla scent, love it!
Smells like cotton candy
Another Montale perfume I’ve fallen in love with! (Chocolate Greedy is my fav of all time!). This smells like very sweet vanilla, with a slight touch of cinnamon. I personal love to smell like candy and sweet treats, so this was perfect for me. Lasted all day on my clothes (not very long on skin). Strongly sweet when I first spray it, but gets softer after a few minutes.
Way, Way Too Sweet For Me
I'm willing to try this again and see if it grows on me, but my initial impression was not good. I absolutely love vanilla, but for me it has to be well balanced with something else to cut the sweetness. I hoped that the woods and spices would cut the sweetness in this perfume, but ALL I got in the first spray was pure cake frosting. I had to wash it off because the sugary smell made me gag.
Well, it is definitely vanilla and I wouldn’t say a fake smell but I think I’m realizing that I just don’t like vanilla smells like I thought. It was just too sugary sweet for me. I might way a few days and try it again but it’s not my favorite.
Yummy... smells of vanilla and baked goods. Long lasting and captures attention
Sweet and smokey
This is a different kind of vanilla perfume. To me it reminded me of a vanilla tobacco-ish scent. Warm and cozy. A nice break from the same old vanilla scents. It has depth to it, if you will. If you like vanilla and looking for something different to add to your collection definitely give this a try. I received alot of compliments and my family loved it.
A refreshing vanilla scent
Good longevity and sillage. I love the frangrance.
55 to 64
I'm not a huge vanilla fan but this made me change my mind! I ABSOLU-tely loved this!! The vanilla & clove notes are what stuck with me. Maybe it was the clove that make me also like the vanilla! For me, this is a keeper!!
I loved the woody and vanilla scent
smell didn't last long enough and didn't love the smell on me.
I am always looking for a sweet, sugary smell and this delivers! Not as sugary as something like pink ice...but if you like fire and ice, I think you will enjoy this upscale scent.
45 to 54
I have been wearing this scent everyday and it has really grown on me. Makes me feel sexy and I get a lot of compliments
Another Hit! Lovely Vanilla!
This one is great but it makes me sneeze
It’s a nice powdery vanilla scent. It’s got a subtle spice to it. It’s not sickly sweet. It lasts on me for maybe a few hours. I like it but I doubt I’d ever purchase a full sized bottle of it.
45 to 54
Not sure about this one
Its ok. I do like the fragrance, maybe a tad bit sweet for my taste. Seem to get a lot of compliments when i wear it. Wish it lasted longer.
I typically gravitate towards fragrances that have a strong vanilla scent, my aboslute favorite is Atelier Vanille Insensee, which is vanilla and woodsy. This vanilla scent is SO sweet, like cotton candy and spun sugar. In my opinion the scent does not have any layers of fragrance, it is just sweet, sweet candy. I cannot smell anything different on the dry down and it didn't last on my skin either. I don't hate it but it is not the type of scent I like.
18 to 24
Not my favorite, but still nice
There was something strange about this scent to me, almost metallic. At times I really liked it, and at others the combination of this vanilla and the clove smelled odd on my skin. It projects and lasts well, so if you like the scent on yourself it'll wear nicely
18 to 24
I love this scent! Very spicy at the initial application, but it becomes very nice and warm. If you like Vanilla give this one a try
too much vanilla...nothing else
I like this but it's just a little too sweet. I would have liked if the vanilla was paired with something a bit rounder. It smelled like vanilla sugar.
A one note perfume but one that smells upscale.
Mature, True Vanilla Extract Scent
This is a really nice, true vanilla scent with a subtle hint/afterthought of spice if you inhale deeply. In terms of strength, it won’t fill a room, and the lasting power is impressive. Applied in the morning, you might reapply if you were going out that night. It’s kind of simple, and not as confectionary as Vanilla Bean Noel from BBW. There’s a heavy note when I inhale deeply that’s not my favorite, otherwise I would give it 5 stars. For reference, my skin tends to make scents smell powdery/musky.
Such a great Vanilla Scent and long lasting!!! I was pleased with how well the other notes came through and complimented the Vanilla.
Love this one
I love the sweetness and spicyness all in one perfume. I could wear this one often
it smelled like pop-eyes pipe
i havent heard anyone talk about it in all of the years it has existed, and i guess this is why!! here goes... if popeye had a dream of sailing again and coming up out of his animated grave, this would be it.. i am wondering what this house was thinking.. but anyway im glad i didnt blind buy and will be gifting this to someone who likes the smokey smell of tobacco.. it wouldve been a beautiful gourmand fragrance if it didnt have that smokiness.. tobacco flower is great in other things like candles i have learned but not for the skin and.. only in small amounts in the candles, just to compliment what is there the most like ylang ylangi could see this reminding someone of their old days or childhood, if they grew up or were raised on a farm that grew tobacco that it was a part of their everyday life i am sorry montale what a disaster overtop something we all wanted to love very much
It was ok. Very vanilla i always got comments from co workers saying i smelled like candy from a carnival... Or marshmellows. Not sure if i want to be thought of that way, so i dont wear it often.
This is a sexy vanilla. Love it.
I love love love vanilla scents. They are sweet and warm and remind me of home.
Great for my chemistry
Can smell the vanilla, extremely light musk smell, with a sweet smell like marshmallow scented marker i loved as a kid (without the marker smell lol)
Absolutely yummy but subtle
I absolutely adore this scent
It smells more like an air freshener scent versus a perfume. It’s just horrible.
Pure Vanilla Ecstasy
45 to 54
Great layering scent
Pure vanilla smell that works great for layering with other fragrances. Sillage and longevity are average.
One of the best
Though it may kind of smell like Robitussin at first spritz, this fragrance mellows out onto the skin in a very candy/bakery-like vanilla fragrance. Of all the vanilla scents I've tried (hint:a lot) Vanille Absolu definitely ranks in my top 2.
25 to 34
Love this smell! It’s like adult cotton candy—a step up from pink sugar without the sickly sweet after note
Vanille Absolu is delicious! I am so glad I discovered this gorgeous vanilla scent! Yum!
Absolutely LOVE this scent!
Vanilla scents are my favorite, and this is the best one I've ever tried. It's not too sweet and it smells amazing.
It's most definitely vanilla! I love vanilla!

Sweet and strong
Very long lasting scent and I swear there are top and bottom notes of a chocolate (possibly it's the clove plus vanilla). Since it's strong with little required for application and it lasts for a long time (I work a 10 hour shift and it stayed through that plus at home, probably all day), it might be better for use outdoors or open spaces more than small offices, just in case someone else doesn't like it. It's a sweet smell which makes it a nice choice for men who can't find sweetness in colognes. If that isn't your thing, consider another scent. If you enjoy a warm sweetness, vanilla without tobacco notes, or if you enjoy a chocolaty sweetness, try this one. Expect it to be an autumn and fall scent, as vanilla tends to be.
idk why you would recommend this to a person that wanted a vanilla without tobacco notes, worst advice ever it must be a joke to you
It's your basic vanilla. Smells like Bath and Body Works. Nothing I'd go out of my way to purchase.
Youthful and Sweet
This fragrance is for somebody... I thought it was nauseatingly sweet and smelled more of cotton candy than vanilla. This scent is long wear.
Perfect for winter
I always get compliments when I wear this scent.
Sweet smelling fragrance that goes well with winter. You don't need a lot and you can really smell the vanilla notes. Long lasting too.
I received this one last month and at first thought that it was so Chocolate Greedy but after wearing it for a while it changed into something different. Very nice for the Christmas season. Enjoy.
It’s very sweet and kind of overwhelming at first but when it settles it is a beautifully sweet vanilla scent. Lasts into the next day!
Men love it...
This fragrance is sweet and strong. It is very reminiscent of Bath and Body Works' Warm Vanilla Sugar but slightly more sophisticated. Everytime I wear it someone asks me if I have cookies or candy, especially men. I tend to layer it with other things especially since a little bit goes a long way. My favorite Scentbird scent so far!
Smells like warm vanilla cookie.
Smells like cinnamon toast crunch lol
25 to 34
This is so perfect. It smells like cotton candy and cigars.
It makes me smell amazing like a vanilla seed it's awesone
Deliciously vanilla! I love it!!
Too sweet, repugnant
25 to 34
I love this perfume so much!!
I can not go anywhere without someone asking what it is or commenting about how good it smells. The best way I can describe this scent is “sophisticated marshmallows” lol. The only reason I gave 4 stars is because for some reason I can not spray this perfume without sneezing uncontrollably.
35 to 44
Smells so sweet and true to vanilla
Didn’t like the scent
Well you definitely get a vanilla smell. But that’s pretty much it. I don’t smell anything else there besides vanilla and it’s super strong. May as well just pour vanilla extract on yourself, it’ll give you the same result
My new favorite
Much lighter than expected. Just enough vanilla without smelling like baked goods. I love this as an everyday scent.
25 to 34
Worth A Review!
I haven't reviewed a fragrance in a long time, but I had to log on for this one. It's AMAZING! It has the sweet subtle notes of vanilla and the woodsy notes while still being very soft, feminine, and long lasting. Probably my favorite scents I've gotten all year!
Awesome awesome awesome
I really love the vanilla fragrance in body mist , splashes and now this perfume. It’s long lasting and it’s heavenly 😊🥴
2.5 out of 5
It’s cloyingly sweet. I prefer to mellow out spicier scents with this one, as opposed to wearing it alone.
this will be one of my new Favs! it's soft, light, and very long lasting! ABSOLUTELY! LOVE IT!
35 to 44
Vanilla is my go to perfume, and this one did not disappoint! It's perfect for daytime or night time!
True vanilla that lends itself to chocolate..long lasting! One scent my boyfriend actually loves!
Montale vanilla absolu
Smells great! Warm vanilla that’s not overpowering!
did not like
i wa excited to get this but when i sprayed this i smelled cloves more than anything i did not like it i love vanilla so i was super disappointed
25 to 34
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
45 to 54
This is a warm vanilla scent. I really like it for the fall.
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.
I really enjoy this fragrance. It’s creamy vanilla with some spice. Easy to wear everyday.

Montale NEVER disappoints!!!
DELICIOUS vanilla scent. Smooth creamy and long lasting. True gourmand fragrance. I will def be purchasing a full size bottle. This can also be mixed with other fragrances to create a whole new fragrance!!!

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.
35 to 44
Vanilla lovers will like this
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!
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.
