Hey guys! My boyfriend and I just recently celebrated our two year anniversary together, and he really wanted to surprise me with something I've been lusting over. While we were at the mall, he sneaked into Sephora while I was looking in another store and came out with the fragrance I've been wanting all Summer! Lavanila Vanilla Summer is a limited edition scent from Lavanila that smells like Summertime itself.
Lets see how Lavanila describes this fragrance...
"Breathtaking blue skies meet the sound of lapping waves in this limited edition Summer 2012 fragrace that instantly transports you to your own private oasis. Fresh mango, juicy pineapple, creamy coconut milk, and island sugar cane are steeped in a sultry base of warm Madagascar vanilla creating a captivating melange that infuses those hot summer nights with a whipsering seductive breeze."
This is the most amazing fragrance I think I've ever owned. If you are looking for a vanilla based scent, this isn't the one for you, as I found that this is mainly coconut. It smells exactly like sweet coconut water with a bit of pineapple. It's a quite simple scent yet so delicious. It's very summery, but I think I will continue wearing it all year long, it's just that heavenly.
My favorite thing about Lavanila's scents is that they are all natural. They don't contain Petrochemicals, phthalates, propylene glycol, mineral oils, silicone, synthetic dyes, sulfates or parabens. In simple terms, the scents are free of harsh and possibly toxic chemicals. On Lavanila.com they say that they infuse organic sugar cane alcohol with pure essential oils and vitamin rich technology, so whats left on your skin are body beneficial vitamins, not harsh chemicals.
As for lasting power, I was very impressed by how long the scent stayed. I sprayed it on my wrists, neck and two small sprays on my clothing, and it lasted me for about six hours. After that, it began to weaken, but was still present. I don't have a ton of experience with perfumes and fragrances, but since I typically use body mists, I was so happy to still be smelling like Vanilla Summer six hours later!
Get this while you can! As mentioned, its a limited edition fragrance for this summer so it will be gone soon! Its a must try for any coconut lover!
