Does any know of a good perfume that smells like vanilla?

Oooh. Good question. I love vanilla perfume!

My favorite, though I've never owned a bottle, is The Body Shop's Vanilla Eau de Toilette. They also offer a Vanilla Body Oil, but I think I like the first one better.

Bath and Body Works also has some vanilla-y scents. There's Warm Vanilla Sugar... which is nice, but I think I still prefer The Body Shop. Maybe that's cuz I own the BBW stuff and the grass is always greener on the other side? Who knows?

BBW also has some nice almond scents which are sort of vanilla-y.

Mmmm that sounds interesting, alp1990.

Is that available in department stores so I could sniff a sample?
Or do you buy it online?

They do! As a matter of fact, my ex-boyfriend used to think I smelled of vanilla naturally! He was so upset when he saw me put on Vanilla perfume. It was Crabtree & Evelyn Vanilla perfume, which they don't make anymore.

BTW, I was just at Body Shop and tried their Vanilla Eau de Toilette tester again. I changed my mind. Too strong and overpowering! Maybe I used too much, or maybe I should try their body mist, which is probably more watered down.

That's what's good about Bath & Body Works sprays. You can use them liberally and they don't overpower. At least not to me.

yeah,I love the way vanilla smells. I've used plain vanilla extract before and it worked well.

Hi Grover,
You can buy it at dept. stores. My last purchase was at JC Penney's. It's a bit strong when you first spray it on, but then it just turns on right.

Allie, Yes, you are right!! MEN love it. Everytime I wear it I get compliments everywhere, even DH who doesn't notice much some times.

For me, thr right vanilla is such a hard scent to find. I have The Body Shops vanilla oil but, it still isn't what I was really looking for. My grandmother used to have her perfumes made by a local buisness here and they make the best vanilla bean type scent. It is just a single note vanilla bean scent. Here's the link - It's under "Southern Favorites" and it is called "Vanille"

Thanks for the info on the perfume. I love the scent of vanilla. JCPenney's is my favorite dept. store too so I'll have to check it out next time I'm there.

Years ago, I purchased a body lotion at Victoria's Secret that was vanilla scented. I just think it was called Vanilla. I don't know if they still sell it but it was very good - light - not overpowering.

My seventh grade teacher told us her "secret" to smelling great was dabbing REAL vanilla on in the morning. (What a tip!) I love B&Bs warm vanilla too, though I would also like to find a crisper variety as well.

I used to love the Bath and Body works vanilla bean scent but they no longer make it. Maybe that's a good thing though because people would always tell me that I smelled like cotton candy!

I found these essential oils in a little shop in Blacksburg, Va last year and bought this tube of vanilla musk. It is the best stuff and I wear it all the time. Comes in a little tube I keep in my purse for those just in case times. Last weekend some guys in Denver nicknamed me "vanilla girl" because they liked the scent. Worked for me.

I adore vanilla, and I recommend going to your nearest hippie/new age/head shop and look for Nemat Vanilla Musk (my Whole Foods carries it):

glass bottle is 1.5" x 1" x .75" (HxWxD w/o cap) with a 1" tall screw top

It is the warmest, naturalest vanilla I've ever worn.  No chemical edge, long-lasting, not overpoweringly sugary.  The perfect vanilla that lasts ALL day without ever getting overpowering.

what I'm wearing: 1 pkg 18" DLux SS #2 and protac

Avon makes a good vanilla perfume called  Vanilla Musk.....That used to be my fav.  B&B Vanilla is still the best though, I think.

I like the idea of dabbing some real vanilla, sure would be cheap enough.  Smile

I've heard of using real vanilla. Never tried it though. But supposedly, it's a natural aphrodisiac, that's why guys like the smell so much.
