My issue with vanilla fragrances isn't the fragrance itself, but the over abundance of vanilla scented merchandise. Candles, car air fresheners, cleaning supplies, home plug-ins, body wash, laundry detergent...you get the picture. I find it hard to go a day without running in to the smell of vanilla in some form. Because of this, my vanilla fragrances need to have an extra kick. Something that sets it apart from the vanilla abuse I experience in all other forms, for instance, the absolutely enthralling tobacco note in Tobacco Vanille. So, in short, unless there is something unique and identifying to go along with the vanilla, I am going to leave it to my ice cream.
