L`Occitane en Provence Vanille & Narcisse Eau de Toilette for Women Review

 
What a gorgeous, gorgeous fragrance!

L`Occitane Vanille & Narcisse Eau de Toilette is a vanilla based fragrance.

Top notes of Blackcurrant and Bergamot
Heart notes of Narcissus and Gardenia
Base notes of Vanilla and Tonka Bean

It first starts of slightly musky, then evolves into a warm cuddly vanilla scent with a hint of spice. I can smell the Tonka Bean too. There is a sweetness to it but it is not as girly nor as pronounced as some of my other favourite fragrances (see Lancome La Vie Est Belle). The musky spicy-ness to it adds some sophistication and maturity to this fragrance. It was love at first whiff, and somehow, the scent makes me think of root beer or vanilla coke.

The fragrance is quite long-lasting - I can still smell it on my wrists the next day! It has little to moderate sillage. No matter how many spritzes, I don't find it overwhelming at all. I suppose you can say it is quite subtle in that way.

I think this type of fragrance would work best worn in the cooler autumn-winter months due to the cuddly vanilla, although the sweetness is also refreshing for the summer.

Personally, I find this fragrance a perfect combination of sexy and sweet. I have been using it every day, and I love it!

L`Occitane Vanille & Narcisse Eau de Toilette is priced at £49 for 75ml. This fragrance is available from your local L`Occitane shop and their website!
