    Default Mandarin Vanilla from Shiara

    I´m a big mandarine fan and I noticed the above fragrance for sale quite cheaply on the web.
    Has anyone tried it ? Has it got more mandarine in it, as opposed to vanilla ??
    I have never heard of this fragrance in europe.
    Any help is much appreciated !!!

    Mandarin Vanilla is orange blossom, tangerine, sandalwood and vanilla. The opening is orange, juicy and tangy orange, very pleasant. The vanilla is definitely noticeable but doesn't take away from the tangy orange. The drydown is quite powdery on my skin. It's not an amazing fragrance by any means, but it is an enjoyable one. Hope that helps some.

    My pleasure, David. I quite like it, especially for the price, but I feel I should caution you -- when I say powdery drydown, I do mean powdery. Now powdery is a very good thing for me, but some people really abhor powdery fragrances and somehow, for some odd reason, equate them with &quot;old ladies.&quot;

    The bottle I have is actually a &quot;cologne pour&quot;.

    Apologies for reviving such an old thread (hope it's ok). Just wanted to say, I love the 'Cherry Vanilla' fragrance from Shiara. Haven't tried the Mandarin one yet, but I want to.
