The Body Shop Madagascar Vanilla Flower Review

The Body Shop Madagascar Vanilla Flower

You can go ahead and add The Body Shop Madagascar Vanilla Flower Fragrance Mist and Perfume Oil to my list of things to love. I was been a terribly bad girl last week and was shopping clearance at on the Body Shop;s website and I thought to myself, “Hey, you never tried Madagascar Vanilla Flower, now’s your chance, it’s on sale!”

Now I’m pretty pick with vanilla. I blame Stila! Stila Creme Bouquet has ruined ALL vanilla fragrances for me and now I expect any and all vanilla fragrances to smell as lush, warm, inviting and delicious as Creme Bouquet.

Unfortunately, The Body Shop Madagascar Vanilla Flower IS NOT Creme Bouquet but it’s still a rather delightfully fresh vanilla fragrance that’s utterly wearable.

I purchased both the The Body Shop Madagascar Vanilla Flower Fragrance Mist ($5.60) and Perfume Oil ($4) because I thought I’d layer them. Knowing my body chemistry I knew the fragrance mist wouldn’t linger or have as good a throw as I would like so used along with the perfume oil I can get the fragrance to last a lot longer!

Apparently Madagascar Vanilla Flower has changed notes and there’s a lot of reviews on the Body Shop’s site stating how much better the old version was. Well, I don’t know what I’m missing because I never tried the old formula but I will say I REALLY like the new one so I’m golden.

This is a weird fragrance as it tends to morph a good deal. At first mist it’s a little bit of a vanilla gourmand and has a little hint of cake to it. But as it dries down you get a very sensual, sexy blend of warm almost tropical floral notes. Further dry down you’ll find it goes spicy and even oriental giving the fragrance a slight powdery musk that radiates warmth and sultriness. You can put it in the “sexy vanilla” class because the floral notes really add an element of warmth. It’s both delicious and enticing.

I do wish it would last long but as I mentioned above the perfume oil does add a bit of a longer wear when using the fragrance mist.

This one is a keeper.

Do like!

    Ahh, Muse you must get this in the perfume form instead of the mist. I have all of it, due to being a Vanilla obsessed freak. The perfume body cost more but it will last all day on you! Or even the next day.This is my HG perfume. Love this Vanilla post, thanks!!

    • Isabella Muse

      I didn’t notice they had a perfume! Did you mean the perfume oil!? My pleasure 🙂 <3!

  • Terry

    No its perfume doll! I have the oil, lotion , and perfume bottle. I didnt get the mist cause they said it dont last long. Its on their Fragrance section on the site, MADAGASCAN VANILLA FLOWER EAU DE TOILETTE

  • Terry

    Yes thats what its called on the site, its on the fragrance and oil section. The bottle is square its a perfume. It will last all day on you!without the help of the oil.

    • Isabella Muse

      ah but eau de toilette isn’t perfume 🙂 toilette is a lot less stronger than perfume sadly. I always find the EDT formula wears a little longer than the fragrance mist for sure!

  • Terry

    I was in the store and the girl said it deft last longer than EDT. Lol she called it their perfume so I guess so…if it last like one for me. I have used both and the mist only last 3…4 hrs most. Their toilette last all day on me and can still smell it on any clothing the next day.

      Generally toilette and perfume are formulated differently. EDT is more expensive and has a higher concentrate of perfume oil. I imagine the EDT does last longer than the fragrance mist 🙂 I tend to have a shorter wear with both the fragrance mist and EDT formula at the body shop. My skin tends to suck them right up so I can get like an hour or two from them and I need a touch up within that time frame. I wish they’d do more perfume formulas as those tend to be a little longer lasting. Although their perfume oils do help to extend the wear for me 😀

  • Terry
