Vanille Divine des Tropiques by La Maison De La Vanille
Niche perfume brands are becoming more and more popular among perfumistas who simply don’t want to smell like everyone else (let’s face it, a whole generation of women smelled like Chanel No5 and another one like Light Blue). One of these well-hidden brands of which products, strangely enough, can be now found in stores like Sephora, is La Maison De La Vanille. The “House Of Vanilla” is in fact exactly what is suggests: a brand solely devoted to creating mouthwatering vanilla-based fragrances (vanilla freaks’ haven, to say the least).
Vanille Divine des Tropiques is a vanilla scent inspired by tropical aromas and summer-invoking scents. There is so much “holiday” to this fume that you would initially imagine, especially once you realize that there are a lot of floral notes in this one, which would normally dictate spring. Usually we are accustomed to summer scents as more aquatic and fruitier; yet this uncanny aroma evokes summer without the slightest bit of juice in it. And it does it all with vanilla, florals and imagination!
What Category Does This Perfume Fit Into?
This is a gourmand scent with multiple floral tones to it. It may of course contrarily be considered a floral with gourmand tones!
What Notes Are In It?
White flowers like gardenia and jasmine twirled with heliotrope, tuberose and hyacinth blend with a fresh breathtaking vanilla, enwreathed in aldehydes for that extra kick. The essence of a fresh season ahead is sealed in this unique bottle, ideal for spring and summer holidays.
How Long Does It Last On The Skin?
Vanille Divine is an eau de toilette, as are all fragrances in LMDLV’s range. It thus isn’t one of the most long-lasting scents you will ever own, enduring from as little as 2 hours to perhaps 4 or 5, depending on skin type.
Why Should I Purchase It?
This is a great perfume for those who want a fresh vanilla fragrance for spring and summer. It is probably one of the most transcendent fumes around, as it entails sweet, warm gourmand notes as well as fresh spring and summer tones. The aquatic essence of the perfume may actually resemble that of a summer beachside resort. To some people, Vanille Divine is summer in a bottle, while others would associate it more with spring. The packaging also seems to cry out “toss me in your luggage!”, offering both quality and convenience to your scent-ful holidays.
Who Can Wear it?
This is a fresh youthful scent, yet has that floral aspect to it that makes it simultaneously more mature. A balanced fragrance for everyone, it can be worn as an everyday refreshing eau de toilette or as a soft breeze across your skin on a summer night. If vanilla as a not is too sticky for you, then maybe this will be hard to wear during the warmer months.
How Much Does It Cost?
Your best luck to find Vanille Divine des Tropiques (if Sephora fails) is the “luckiest” online store of all, LuckyScent.com.Priced at $60 in 100ml (French residents can purchase it from the official website at www.maison-de-la-vanille.com).
