Friday Favorites: LaVanilla
Hello my lovelies! It's time for Friday Favorites! If you know me you know how obsessed I am with vanilla. In fact, it is hands down my favorite scent in the whole entire world. In the past I would wear Victoria's Secret "Vanilla Lace" and Comptoir Sud Pacifique in "Vanilla Exreme" or any of their yummy vanilla scents. More often than not I would end up layering them with other fragrances. I love to layer, but sometimes I want to option to apply and go.
I went to Sephora the other day with a girlfriend, and decided to get a rollerball of LaVanilla in Pure Vanilla. Why did I get a rollerball instead of a small bottle? I feel like rollerballs are a good way to test a fragrance without shelling out the dough for a bottle. I like to try a new scent for a few days to see how it reacts to my body. After the first day of wearing it I became obsessed. I am so glad I bought a rollerball. Now I can have the scent of delicious vanilla beans with me on the go. Yay! What I love about this scent is it isn't overpowering or too sweet. I hate when fragrances remind me of children's perfume. LaVanilla in "Pure Vanilla" balances sweet and grown-up perfectly.
Vanilla has been a favorite of mine as a kid. It reminds me of my Grammy a.k.a. the most amazing woman in the whole wide world. She always wore vanilla as a base, and baked the most delicious desserts. How could I not grow up as a vanilla fanatic? It's warm, comforting, and smells delish!
I remember reading a study a few years ago stating vanilla was a man's favorite scent on a woman. Now I can not speak for all men, but my husband and male friends have always complimented me whenever I wear it.
If you guys love the scent of vanilla I highly suggest you give LaVanilla in "PureVanilla" a try!
