    Transparent? Light??

    I found Vanilia sticky, sickly sweet and suffocating. But that's just me.

    About time!

    It's been 31 years since L'artisan released a vanilla scent anyway.

    Neiman Marcus department stores carry L'Artisan (and Serge Lutens). I stop in regularly and will definitely try this when it comes out.

    It is about time, like some one already noted. I haven't been excited about a L'Artisan
    release in a while now. The last handful of releases has been nothing but dissapointments.

    Yeah, I agree. The last L'Artisan releases I really liked were Dzonghka and Fou d'Absinthe in 2006. I am going to sample this one (and the one they're making for Scent Bar) when they come out, though. The Aramis re-release of Havana, which is happening at about the same time Havana Vanille is appearing, may not be the best news for L'Artisan.

    And thanks very much for that "heads-up" Mike ... As a self confessed vanillaholic, I am really hoping this one will "do it" for me. It's sounding quite delicious, I think !

    Anyways, I'll check it out since I tend to like Duchaufour creations.
    I too got the sense this would be a vanilla tobacco scent. Could this be the subtle version I've been searching for? Can't wait to try it.

    Completely agree with this opinion .... someone please lose the tobacco it's getting old.
    While SDV may have the consummate vanilla drydown - was the smoke really called for ?

    I am really excited about this one. I visited Havana this year, love rum, love vanilla. A bit of smoke would be nice. As we all know, a list of notes may hint at a fragrance, but then again.....

    So excited, does anyone know when L'artisan will release this wonderful sounding (and hopefully long lasting with great sillage) scent
    I am not afraid... I was born to do this.

    Little Update : Well , aha ! It seems my hunch was totally correct after all ! ... I have just found out that indeed there is a tobacco note in HV ! (as was expected !)
    It has some "sensual" tobacco leaves amongst the vanillary rum. Though apparently it is not as strong or as "masculine" a note as in TF's Tobacco Vanille. Being rather just much more nuanced and in the background. (But it's more all about the actual leaves, rather than the "smoky"). And it's there more to add that "Havana" exotic touch/feel, apparently.
    It's also apparently nothing like SDV. ... With the vanilla being very much more apparent from the very beginning ... and staying all the way through till the very end ! (Yay!) And not as "drowned out" as it is in SDV.
    Apparently the vanilla note is just like fresh scraped vanilla pods, being totally true to the source. (Yipee! ) ... Two vanillas are used ~ Mexican and Madagascan .
    And it mostly smells just like vanilla infused rum !
    Apparently longevity is also not that bad (I have heard 6-8 hours). Which would be very impressive indeed for a L'Artisan.

    Well, it still sounds pretty much yummy to me !!! ... I think it's highly probable that I'm gonna be a big fan !

    And as far as release date ??? ... Am not sure here I'm afraid ??? ... Perhaps (hopefully!) a couple of months ??? (Though I know that's really no help LOL)

    Its been a while since I had been this excited by an upcoming L'Artisan ..and its an EDP, which probably means that it will be EDT-like in its tenacity and sillage. From the notes it sounds like Mr. Incense-here-and-incense-there-and-everywhere-everywhere-incense-incense is finally branching out after running the incense theme into the ground (have I mentioned incense enough yet?...I am hoping for a smokier less grating lutens -like accord in this one.

    This sounds like it's going to have a "dirty" vanilla vibe going on, me likey!

    I really do hope there's atleast a HINT of tobacco in this, it's not quite Havana, Cuba unless there's tobacco.

    I have found a slightly different notes pyramid from the one above.

    Top : Rum , Mandarin , Orange , Clove
    Heart : Dry Fruits , Narcissus Absolute , Rose , Tobacco Leaf
    Base : Madagascan + Mexican Vanilla Absolute , Tonka Bean , Benjoin , Tolu Balm , Vetiver , Musks

    So this should keep you tobacco luvrs happy. ... Though, as I have somewhere above before ... the tobacco is apparently much more subtle in this one.

    Now Smell This has posted a review:
    http://www.nstperfume.com/2009/08/20...erfume-review/

    From the review: ...this is nothing like the heady punch of sweet pipe tobacco that you get from, say, Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille

    ...Havana Vanille reminds me of Guerlain’s Spiritueuse Double Vanille in several respects.

    ...L’Artisan Havana Vanille launches in October, and will be available in 50 ($115) and 100 ($155) ml Eau de Parfum.

    Well, I'm sold

    I was looking forward to this, until that SDV comparison was made. I hope that is not what I will think when I try it.

    Sounds interesting. It'll sound fascinating when Duchafour stars working with iso e super or fennel.

    When I saw that they compared it to SDV an absolute favorite, that I have been worried about cost-wise ever since smelling it, I was sold! L'Artisan prices, instead of Guerlain's? I'm there!

    This sounds great for the coming fall. I think Blue Mercury sels the L'Artisan line.
