I got this as a sample from Sephora and loved it so much that I bought the full size from Sephora. The scent is not fruity but still very appealing to the nose. It is exactly the kind of smell I want now that I am getting older and Victoria secret in no longer cutting it. The smell is also long lasting. I wore it while shopping outside in the sun all day, sweating. And during dinner with my friends they said I smelled good.
This one is my favorite! I have the travel version as well. It is available at sephora and anthropologie, and I’m sure other stores have it as well. This isn’t too overpowering, but it is a more mature scent! I definitely would recommend wearing this for a date night! Any time of the year!
True Madagascar vanilla
Let me start off by saying that I hate, hate, hate vanilla/musk/amber/caramel/sugar scents, in everything from candles to lotions to perfumes. Absolutely hate them, they are always sickeningly sweet, go way overboard on the vanilla and amber notes and to me, they all smell the same. There is nothing unique about any of those scents. I love fruity, clean, floral or classy scents, but this one really surprised me. I recently started researching this brand on here and was very interested to try the perfumes without making a special trip in store, so I bought the perfume a go-go and I really enjoy it. I thought I would absolutely detest this and was even apprehensive opening the sample packet because the notes are vanilla, caramel and sandalwood. I can hang with the former and the latter but was worried about the caramel, but man this scent is perfectly balanced. This is the first sugary/sweet scent I've ever smelled that is not imbalanced and top-heavy with vanilla sugar grossness. This doesn't smell like buttercream, cup cakes, cotton candy or anything like that--it's unique, subtle, feminine, and just sweet enough. It's a true Madagascar vanilla, not a fake chemically "basic" (sorry, but it's true) vanilla scent, and the caramel is lovely. It's not too buttery or too sweet, and the sandalwood in the base really helps to keep everything grounded and balanced. If I were ever to buy a sweet scent, it would be this. The scent lasts for a loooong time too, even in the little sample packet with the towlette.
I have both the full size and travel size shimmer mist because I loved it so much! Great fragrance
Absolutely love this scent... it has a very warm vanilla scent that I love.. i got it as a sample and loved it from the beginning... definitely recommend
