Iím not a vanilla fan, but I loved Montale's Bois Vanille. This is another vanilla creation by Montale that I like very much. Where Bois Vanille was vanilla and wood, Vanilla Extasy is more complex: It is vanilla, jasmine, and wood with the sweetening touch of apricot. I find that it develops well on my skin. The opening is a strong rich, not super sweet vanilla note, and after several minutes, it picks up a jasmine and apricot vibe, which holds for a very long time. It closes with a vanilla, floral, apricot, and sandalwood accord that has excellent longevity. Of course the vanilla makes it seem less varied, but I find more than sufficient movement in the fragrance. Another thumbs up for another Montale vanilla fragrance.
