I'm even wearing a T-shirt!!
Today I come again to a vanilla scent.
"You're crazy! You want to test scents with vanilla in this heat?", you will surely say now!

Sure you can! After all, the weather is still warm for about two or three days, but in a rather pleasant way, without melting through the oppressive heat! And above all it is also pleasant to be able to sit in the morning and even still in the morning with open windows in the apartment, without it getting disgustingly hot already at 8 o'clock in the morning... hey I can even sit around in T-shirts instead of sitting half-naked in front of the computer.

Okay, down below I'm still pretty free, but... hey hey, that was a joke, but I bet you chickpeas already started giggling, right? D

But enough talked, now I finally come to the fragrance, which as said for a long time is a vanilla fragrance again and smells incredibly good!

The fragrance:
Right at the beginning I am wrapped in a huge, powdery-sweet fragrance cloud, which smells damn delicious of vanilla, caramel, cake with lemon glaze and a little bit of milk. Or in other words: It really smells like a calorie bomb *sigh* :D
And as listed in the fragrance cloud I can also perceive spices. Light, actually not really identifiable spices in the background.
For a while the fragrance stays that way, i.e. quite gourmandig sweet with warm powdery notes. It is pleasant and, as I write it so often here: quite tasty, so that the water in your mouth could run together :D
However, it generally only smells tasty, since it does not remind a little later directly of a cake or something like that. But as I said, the individual scents are very nice in themselves :)
Also later it smells quite gourmandig above all with vanilla, caramel, light spices, meanwhile also with almond, light floral notes as well as also, if I am not mistaken, a "shot" at earthy notes in the background. Even later, musk is added, making the fragrance even sweeter.
Oh, and if you're wondering if the scent of Frangipani is "somewhere" in the name, don't ask me! Frangipani is still one of those flowers I'm unsure about. And since the fragrance already smells very sweet, I can't tell if a part of this sweetness comes from this flower or not *sigh* :D

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is gigantic at the beginning, this is because of the fragrance cloud, which appears at the beginning and envelops one. However, this cloud quickly disappears again, so that the radiation is actually only average and therefore could not be perceived from too great a distance. But nevertheless, it is sufficient :)
As so often with this type of scent, the shelf life is enormous, so that you can really smell the scent on your skin from morning till evening.

The bottle:
The bottle is cylindrical with a thicker bottom and is actually quite simple. On the front you can see a printed label with the name of the fragrance and a nice flower drawing. The lid is transparent and also cylindrical, it sits on the gold-plated spray head. Well, I don't find the bottle very spectacular now.

Pooh, good thing I tried that scent on a day that wasn't too hot. It's really very sweet and gourmandig. Don't get me wrong, even if I just say that the scent on one of those monstrously hot days would have been extremely exhausting and overwhelming, I think it smells damn great. It's just that for me it's an autumn and winter scent.

Be that as it may, the fragrance smells divine for all those who like gourmand fragrances with vanilla, generally sweet notes, caramel and almond and so on! It is suitable by its beautiful sweet-powdery charisma especially for going out and as always also to be eaten with it (oh must be tasty, one of you here for example to eat mu ha ha ha :DD).

So I give you a clear test recommendation, but maybe you should wait until autumn, because I somehow have the feeling that the hellish heat will return, which I hope of course not!

great for winter
Vanille frangipanier seems to have more cinnamon to it than Tendre Madeleine; also a bit of dry wood too. Frangipanier has a bit of a clean smell; not totally gourmand based on the notes, but it's heavy enough to last for a good 4-5 hours on me. I wore it before sleeping one time, and it was the perfume equivalent of drinking chai or a glass of warm milk before bedtime--very comforting.
