Vanillary fragrance notes

Reviews of Vanillary

Vanillary is gourmand and floral. Not too sweet, it's a fresh, greenish vanilla. It's not cloying, even with a wax/honey note. The solid and spray perfumes are very complimentary.

Contrary to most reviews I find it smooth and elegant.. Not as sweet and immature..
A vanilla for grown up men and women.. Simplistic and artistic.. Only 3 notes and the folks at Lush managed to come up with a winner.. The Tonka adds some depth to a well blended floral vanilla.. Sillage is average as well as longevity.. A great casual scent..

Great smokey vanilla. I smell sandalwood in this which I didn't see in the notes or mentioned by any other reviewers. The thing that really stood out for me in this fragrance was the touch of incense which is the same one from Breath of God. Works better in vanillary and tempers the sweetness. This fragrance is sweet, but not in the sugar sweet catagory like some other vanilla based fragrances. I thought this was a bit too feminine, but I've had it described as sexy by a few women. By sexy I mean they were checking me out when they were smelling it. Yeah, I'm keeping this one!

Vanillary is brilliantly simple. It is a mature jasmine-vanilla scent. Not mature as in ‘dated and musty’ but ‘grown up and refined’. This is unlike any vanilla scent I’ve yet to encounter. There is a smoldering incense in the drydown that could be attributed to the mix of tonka bean and jasmine. The vanilla is unadulterated. The jasmine is impressively authentic; it reminds me of the night-blooming jasmine bush in front of my house. It miraculously captured the scent of real jasmine as it blooms on a May evening. It’s pure bliss! Too many jasmine fragrances fall victim of turning into ‘car freshener’ jasmine, too sweet and too plasticky. This is the real deal. I spent an entire afternoon compulsively sniffing my wrists like a mental ward patient with an OCD tick. I had to go back to the Lush boutique and make this scent my own.

My only complaint is its inability to last longer than two hours. The sales person who insisted I would love this fragrance also massaged one of my forearms with the Heavanilli massage bar which is also scented with Vanillary. The use of the massage bar prolonged the scent and softened my skin. Maybe it’s just my skin’s chemistry but this scent vanishes in a smoky instant so layering is a necessity.

Anyone who is turned off by vanilla fragrances must give this one a go. It is not your typical saccharine vanilla.

You want candy-sweet? This is candy-sweet.
You want gourmand? This smells like a delicious dessert, something to have accompanied by a strong espresso.
Toasty - biscuity notes of vanilla and toffee abound.
For two seconds it seems nice (though incredibly sweet) but then on me it gets so tiresome and vanilla-centric that I have to wash it off. I wouldn't even like to encounter it on an attractive person.
