Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille
Friday, 20 February 2015
You may have noticed the lack of perfume posts chez LLA, because I guess, I have a signature scent. I wear Tom Ford Black Orchid year round but I really wanted to try this the Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille and when I finally tracked this down, it was love at first sniff! Seriously, this scent was haunting my dreams! I found it in House of Fraser, Dundrum!
With top notes of Mexican black vanilla this is a heady sweet perfume but not over powering, sickly or food-like! With the addition of sandalwood and licorice it is balanced out and dries down to a more musky, smoky scent. If you lean towards fresher fruity fragrances, this may not be the one for you. It's distinctive and unique. A warm, more grown up vanilla fragrance? As in, it isn't headache inducing and doesn't remind me of cupcakes! Longevity is impressive too as it is an eau de parfum. I apply this in the morning and the scent lingers all day. I always receive compliments when I wear this.
My first Serge Lutens purchase but it won't be my last.
