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!
