Island Vanilla by Pacifica Review

010754_AIsland Vanilla by Pacifica                                  10ml Perfume Oil for $20 NZD

Notes: Jasmine, vanilla, tea, white honey and fruity notes.

This is a natural roll-on perfume oil that I got from Trademe. It glides on smoothly and smells, well, rather unusal. I get a vague floral note (which, thank goodness, isn’t jasmine to my nose) and a vague fruity note but it’s mostly honeyed vanilla. A subtle, soft and graceful scent like a breeze hovering over your skin.

The vanilla/honey combo is rather creamy and a tad sweet. It’s warm, islandy and oriental with a slight gourmand element. It’s young and happy. It’s the quiet girl in the popular group on the beach who’s just content to watch her friends antics and smile. It reminds me of summer and beach volleyball. As it dries down to it’s base I do get an almost green, tea aspect. It reminds me ever so slightly of Jua by Trilogy in the way that it handles a natural oil and that almost strange aspect. It’s a little too soft for me with weak sillage and lasts only a couple of hours. 5.5/10.
