My first flavor from scentbird was “the One” by Dolce & Gabbana
Vanilla, Peach, Lily, Amber, Litchi
I love vanilla scents first and foremost. The first scent I used was Vanilla Fields and I moved to things like warm vanilla sugar, vanilla lace, etc. This time around I was looking for something more sophisticated and not so much cupcake or musk, which I despise. I can’t figure out why vanilla is usually paired with musk, I don’t get it.
One of the flavors I did try after researching best vanilla scents was Lavanila.
Madagascar Vanilla, Tonka Bean, Freesia, Heliotrope
I don’t know if it was just me or what was going on but I didn’t really smell the vanilla, it was too musky for me. I only tried it once however. I may go back to the mall and try it once more because I’ve seen a lot of good reviews for this scent – mostly from vanilla lovers like myself who want something other than cupcake, which vanilla scents are known for.
I also found Wild Madgascar Vanilla from Bath and Body works which was really nice. It’s not musky or cupcake. It’s sweet, yes – but it’s more spicy however. Which I really liked about it.
Top Notes: African Pear, Sparkling Clementine, Ruby Apple
Mid Notes: Wild Jasmine, Wild Gardenia, Heliotrope Petals, Golden Plumeria
Dry Notes: Madagascar Vanilla, White Sandalwood, Creamy Musk
Instead of getting the Lavanila, I settled for the BB&W. Even though I really liked this scent I was still not really satisfied – Long story short, I found scentbird thanks to my sister and tried the One.
Now as for the One, I smell no musk at all. NONE – which is a HUGE deal for me. It’s soft and just very elegant. It has just a hint of sweetness, but not enough to overpower the overall “spice”. My husband loved it on me and he’s rather picky about flavors I wear.
I do like the amber sweetness the One has its nice. That is the first thing that hits you when you spray it on – that sweet amber then as that settles it moves more into the vanilla and floral of the lily – and that is what stays with you for the rest of the day.
