    Question The sweetest, yummiest, foodiest vanilla ?

    Hello everybody,

    I'm an Italian newbie from Belgium !

    I'm a real vanilla nut !
    Since I'm a child, I go absolutely crazy for vanilla sugar smell (do you picture which one I'm talking about ? The one sold in small paper bags, ready to use for cooking or baking).

    And I always take a while to smell those so soft waffles in the bakery corner of the supermarckets.


    I adore vanilla pudding smell , so much that I like to take a big breath in my just-finished vanilla cream carton and that I can't stop stop smelling the finger I deeped into !

    I go crazy for cookies scent, especially the ones called "nics-nacs" (they represent small alphabet letters or numbers and are sold in big plastic bags).


    I know many vanilla fragrances but no one satisfy me.
    Actually, I want to find the sweetest, sugary-est, yummiest, foodiest vanilla.
    I wanna smell like cookies, like vanilla cake, like a bakery, like whatever is sweet and contains vanilla and sugar ! ^^


    I don't want it to be disturbed by florals or fruits : I want it to be vanilla, plain straight-up vanilla !
    Of course, I don't want it to be plasticky or "oily" (I know vanilla fragrances that have some kind of "oily" nauseous note .... yuk ! ).

    Two important criterias are intensity and longevity : I don't want a skin-scent vanilla (but rather a very opulent one) or a vanilla that fades away two hours after I have sprayed it ( I want it to be able to stay overnight ! ).


    So, let's summarize :

    - Sugar, cookie, food, bakery ... ^^

    - Intense

    - Long-lasting


    Knowing all that, which ones would you suggest me ?


    Thank you !

    You seem to know me because I like SDV very much.
    But I find it lacks sugar to satisfy the cookie-smell I desire.

    I don't know of a perfume, but I can recommend a body lotion. Bath & Body Works Vanilla Bean Noel Body Cream. This smells exactly like sugar, vanilla and hot-out-of-the-oven cookies. The scent lasts a long time on my skin.

    For a vanilla waffle smell you simply must try Tihota, by Indult. So waffle-like I couldn't get over it, and absolutely delicious!

    My favorite vanilla is Ayala Moriel's Immortelle L'Amour, which is supposed to smell like french toast with maple syrup. I'm not sure that it does, but it certainly smells tasty.

    That was true, but bit by bit Serena seems to have increased her stock a lot recently. Love's True Bluish Light is available as an oil, and may ( I'm not sure, but a lot have been added lately ) be back as an extrait soon.

    Yummy yummy, the body cream you are talking about !
    But I'm in search of a real fragrance, not a cosmetic derivate product.

    Talking about BBW, I think I could be interested by their "Warm Vanilla Sugar" fragrance : what about it ? Do you think it can meet my desires ?

    Because I know that the vanilla about which are talking the reviews (your link) is the one of the "Les Senteurs" category.
    I searched this category on Molinard's official website but did not find it : it seems to do not exist anymore !
    They do sold a vanilla fragrance but the bottle is not the same as the "Les Senteurs" one, so I'm wondering if the product is still the same ....

    Unfortunately, I have not tried the juice in the new bottle design. So I do not know if it is the same as the juice in the older style bottle. Maybe someone who has tried both can weigh in.

    I know you can find some of the older style bottles, but it may take a bit of searching.

    Good luck with your vanilla quest!

    suga, thanks for your answer.

    I'm writing down your suggestion of Tihota (but why damn is it sooooooooo expensive ?! ) : vanilla waffle smell that makes you have a sweet tooth is truly what I'm searching for !
    What about Tihota's sillage and lasting power ?

    I don't know AM's "Immortelle Amour".
    Does it contain everlasting flower ("immortelle" means "everlasting flower" in French) ?
    Because if it's so, I'm gonna stay far away form it : I can't bear everlasting flower smell.

    Excuse me but could you tell me who is serena ?
    I don't understand.

    I once tried TBS Vanilla Perfume Oil but the composition had already been modified so I don't know whether the oily presentation was a matter or not as I did not like the fragrance.

    Where do you think I can find the "blue-bottled"-vanilla ?

    Thanks for your wishes : the perfect vanilla search seems to be like the HG one !

    Or go cheap ... The Body Shop has these deeee-licious
    Vanilla Eau de Toilettes. They are pure vanilla, sooo nice!

    if you want to smell like a vanilla cake or a sugar cookie, try L de Lolita Lempicka. It's like bathing in batter. it also lasts a good game.

    grand duc, and thank you for answering.

    HP is a very good fragrance but it's not a straight-up vanilla one : I would classify it in the woody-vanilla oriental family because of the sambac jasmine and the woody base . Moreover, though we can't deny its vanilla, I find it neither sugary neither foody.
    It doesn't match what I'm currently searching for.

    Thanks for the suggestion : I will give it a try even if I believe I'm gonna be deceived because the composition of this one is the same as the composition of their vanilla oil, which I did not like because it was not a straight-up and sugary vanilla but rather a vanilla mess struggling to be present among the others floral and fruity notes.

    Guerlain Angelique noire smells so much like baking vanilla to me that I tasted my sample.

    Bathing in a batter : WOW !!! I wanna do it !

    I once tried L and you are right : it really smells like a vanilla-cinnamon cake, delightful !
    It could even be the one which also satisfies my cinammon sweet tooth .... if I hadn't been disturbed by the everlasting flower smell !
    It's such a pity because, without this floral note, this would be one of my HG perfumes !

    I'm gonna give it an other try though.

    Believe you me, that Vanilla EdT from the Body Shop is
    the most str8 up vanilla on the market. I myself am a
    vanilla addict, and this is pure vanilla.
    There is no annoying flower nor fruity notes, just plain vanilla.
    Well, someone in the directory claims there is jasmin in it,
    but I get nothing but pure vanilla.
    And it last forever and ever, it's cloying, it's bakery'ish, all
    the thingsa you ask for ... it's delish!

    I"m going to second Indult's Tihota, but let's be realistic, it is too expensive.

    I thought Memoire Liquid's #3 (i forget hte exact number) smells very similiar to Tihota, and for a 1/3 of the price.
    I don't know if this is available in Europe, however.

    nostalgie, and thanks for your hilarious answer ! ^^

    Mmmm, this may be some good choice for me than !
    I have to try it : it's gonna be difficult as it's part of the "L'Art et la Matière" collection, which is sold only in Guerlain's official store on the Champs-Elysées.



    P.s. : And what does it tast like ?
