L I F E / Vanilla Perfume

Photobucket

Photobucket

The scent of perfumes can sometimes be quite abstract. You know it smells good but can't really tell what it is you like as the combination of scents create a new smell that you can't place in your everyday. Not with the perfume I've been using for the last couple of years. Vanilla Vanille from The Bodyshop smells like nothing more and nothing less than.. -here it comes- vanilla. It's so simple and obvious. Everyone has different associations with it. I've heard people around me say everything from I smell cake to I smell Icecream to I smell my mother's cookies. And how beautiful are the bottles? They look like old fashioned medicine containers.

Ga ik zeker eens proberen! Ik gebruik sinds mijn 16e 'Coco mademoiselle' van Chanel, maar op één of andere manier kan die geur mij niet meer plezieren de laatste tijd.

Oh I used to wear that a lot when I was younger. I started to miss it when I saw these photos, looks so amazing :) I love the vanilla smell, its so sweet and kind in a way!

I've been in love with Hypnôse for the last couple years, and in summer I throw in SUN by Jil Sander (smells like dusty sunshine to me), but I've been thinking about getting a vanille-scented perfume for some time. I have a vanilla candle standing next to my perfumes and everytime I use them I keep thinking "Oh, I would love to smell just like that candle!" Maybe I'll give The Body Shop a try ;)

I think there is nothing my nose likes more than the sence of vanilla. I'm definitely the "sweet and bloomy" type :-D

Ha. I work at The Body Shop and I can't stand that smell. Probably because I wore it to death when I was a kid but also because obnoxious 13-year olds (THOSE WERE THE DAYS) come in at least once a day and spritz away like there's no tomorrow. Ugh.

I love the scent of vanilla, but I lean more towards citrus-y scents. I might try this out though - and you're right, the bottles are pretty x

Aniuta said...

I can say is absolutely the same thing about yourself! every word! about the ice cream and cake! I am loyal vanilla already 10 years..

Lisa said...

Ik heb die ook gehad! Ik vond hem echt heerlijk. Heb nu nog wat andere parfums staan die ik op wil maken. Maar dat is echt een favoriet!

Lena said...

I've been using this perfume for ages - it's amazing and I'm still in love with its scent :-))

LOVETHEFABRIC said...

In de franse supermarkten hebben ze ook heel veel van dit soort geurtjes, 120ml eu de parfum voor 5 euro. Ik ben helemaal hooked aan de cocos geur!

Daphne said...

Oh, I have to taste them... I use vanilla parfume body oil, but I think this one would be easier to use...
I totally love the scent of vanilla and did you know, that men feel attracted by this scent? ;)

This is what I use too Ivania! I sometimes mix it with Daisy by Marc Jacobs, its subtle enough to not be overpowering! :)

Camilla said...

I use 'fraises' by Body Shop and it is heavenly, so basic and I ALWAYS get people saying 'who just ate starbursts/strawberries/cake' haha

Grey Heart said...

oh, i love vanilla perfume and i'm using the "vanilla" by barony brazil ;)

Anna said...

If i look at you i would have never guessed you smelled like cookies. More like some classic flower or something really abstract. Or maybe no perfume at all!

I'm more into fruity perfumes, although I like vanilla as a scent in my bodylotion or something.

Sóley said...

They still make those? Nice. I used to love it, but after a while of using it the smell started to make me feel unclean, maybe it's time to give it another go... I do like the bottles, just wish they were even more medicine like and doodle free.

xx we are purple

I got the same perfume about three or four years ago and I think it´s much better than other vanilla scents! Too bad that The Bodyshop had to close in my town :(

I think that the vanilla smell has at the same time a romantic and nostalgic smell.. that's why my house is full of vanilla candle! :)
xx ale, keeping on loving your blog!

So delicious in their vintage-esque containers. And I adore the scent of vanilla. I've been looking for a simple daily scent, and this may be the victor....

Your blog was just fantastic and very informative. I love these Scents. Have you seen this amazing Discount Perfumes webpage.

Kata Mach said...

If you like simple and straightforward scents, try some of the Le Labo perfumes- they dont combine too many essences in one perfume, just to underpin the character of the basic one. love it!
whats more theyre always freshly made for you, so they stay forever

Modepistol said...

I haven't tried that one actually, but i love wearing different scents though, so i'll definitely visit body shop soon;-)

however, i always have a few favorites that i turn to when it comes to perfume:-)

My favourite is Neroli Jasmin. I think it smells like expensive white chocolate.

I have been looking through older blog posts and saw this perfume then shrieked gleefully because a bottle was sitting 2 feet away from me.

Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!http://berbagaicaraterbaik.wordpress.com
