Vanille Passion is THE best pure vanilla scent that ever existed. After years and years of searching for just the "right" vanilla, I finally found this scent 3 years ago. It is high class and high quality and captures all the warmth and sweetness of vanilla without going overboard in either direction. Most vanillas smell like candy; this one does not. (For a more confectionery-type of vanilla, try Occitane's Vanille.) Comptoir began its journey into Tahitian Vanilla with this scent and is now at a point where their vanilla line is so intensely popular, it stands on its own....moving all their vanilla fragrances from the Eau Voyage line to their new "Island Vanilla" line. Try one or all of them, they are all delightful in their own way.....but this is the original, and after almost 30 years, it can still stand on its own as a spectacular vanilla fragrance. Bravo!
I'm not a vanilla aficianado, but I can believe this is the best vanilla scent available. Even when I didn't want to wear VP, I liked having the vial nearby to sniff.
Of interest to no one but myself: This is the only fragrance product I have ever been able to smell through my left nostril, which is, for whatever reason, normally incapable of transporting news about scent molecules to my brain.
This is the very best vanilla-- and it's worn by both men and women. It's been considered "hot" by the hollywood crowd, led by jack nicholson, who wears it...For a long time. They all discovered it in cannes, one year during the festival. Now, this is a very rich vanilla. So, if you don't like vanilla...Forget it. But if you want the best vanilla scent, this is it. You can use it as is...Or selectively add a couple sprays to one of your favorite scents. It's amazing what it will do. Try it...You might enjoy it.
