Perfume, Reviews - February 7th, 2012
Last Fall I tried Lavanila’s perfume for the first time, with the straight-up Pure Vanilla Eau de Parfum. This Winter, I’m pleased to bring you a review on Vanilla Passion Fruit Eau de Parfum, because it takes everything I liked about Pure Vanilla and turns it up a notch!
The notes for Vanilla Passion Fruit are passion fruit, guava, and peach nectar in a warm base of sandalwood and Madagascar vanilla. For something that has a lot of fruit notes in it, this is really not a “fruity” fragrance. It’s dead sexy, very warm and almost spicy. It’s definitely in the Oriental family of fragrances, with all that vanilla and sandalwood. Lasting power is quite good!
I can’t make any promises about this, but the fragrance is also infused with a “romantic blend of powerful aphrodisiacs (blue lotus, clary sage, and juniper berry) prized for their seductive properties.” Your mileage may vary, lol, but it certainly smells sexy to me! This would definitely be my choice for a Valentine’s gift!
If you are looking for a something on the more natural end of the perfume spectrum, Lavanila definitely fits the bill with some really excellent scents. The perfume comes in a couple of sizes, and there is a matching body lotion as well. I give it two thumbs up!
