Vanille Sauvage de Madagascar by La Maison de la Vanille Review

16503Vanille Sauvage de Madagascar                                   100ml EDT for $60 USD from Luckyscent

Notes: Vanilla, sandalwood, lavender, incense, vetiver, coriander, thyme, geranium and bergamot.

I brought the set of all 5 La Maison de la Vanille 15ml EDT’s for $50 on Luckyscent and it is, perhaps, one of my best buys. I thought that each perfume deserved their own review rather than a combined set one. I love this collection and think it is a must for vanilla-lovers.

Vanille Sauvage de Madagascar opens with a subtly refreshing and spicy combination of bergamot and lavender with a touch of coriander and thyme. The lavender smoothly transitions into a smoky vanilla, sandalwood and vetiver with a hint of geranium heart. The vetiver and geranium fade and my favourite combination of vanilla and sandalwood settles into a glorious base. It’s warm and cozy but also mysterious and misty. It’s slightly powdery, woody, soft and musky. It smells like dreams and adventures. It smells exotic but homely. It smells like markets and gardens. It reminds me of the song ‘Scarborough Fair.’ It smells Celtic. It smells magical.

I applaud this wonderfully blended perfume and must say that it’s one of my favourites. It’s rather sexy, both cool and warm as well as being gender-neutral. It’s slightly honeyed with a touch of floral sweetness. It’s mature and worldly and easily wearable. You could wear it anywhere and at any-time and it’s sooo affordable. It’s got medium sillage and lasts about 5 hours. I carry it with me in my purse and will by the 100ml FB when I run out. 7.5/10.
