Review: Yves Rocher Vanille Noire Eau de Parfum

Yves Rocher has recently introduced a new scent into their Secrets D'Essences line. The new scent is Vanille Noire aka Black Vanilla for those who failed French class, a new take on your traditional vanilla scent. Being a major vanilla fan I was super pumped to try it. Last time I placed and order, the full size bottle was not available for purchase, but I did snag a free mini bottle (as shown) it is just too cute! It is a mini replica of the full size and even comes in a mini box just like it's momma does.

On to the scent: First off if you aren't a fan of sweet fragrances, you don't have to worry. This is not another sweet take on vanilla. Don't get me wrong, as a Pink Sugar fan I love a sweet scent, but this vanilla is a warmer more grounded scent. As the name suggests, this is a darker vanilla, truer to what you would get from a real vanilla pod. This scent isn't singularly vanilla though, it has some depth thanks to the layering of three unique vanillas: the sensual, leathery notes of Vanilla Bourbon Absolute, the sweet and floral Tahitian Vanilla Absolute, and Ugandan Vanilla Absolute with its spicy, woody character.

I have only been using this for a few days and I have to say it is going to be a favorite for a long time. I have found that while the scent lasts on my skin for a day or two it does fade a fair bit, so reapplication is nice for that extra oomph. It is a nice touch that they have introduced a purse size roll on version for on the go application, along with the basic shower gel and body lotion. I have already ordered a bottle of perfume and body lotion. I love Yves Rocher perfumed body lotions! They scent is very full and you can still get a boost of fragrance without even layering the perfume.

On the Canadian Yves Rocher site the perfume was selling for $69, but I see now it is on sale for $39 and all of the "extras" are discounted too. I always wait a bit when they launch something new as it always goes on sale. Are you a vanilla fan? Will you be picking up on this fragrance?

  10. Remember if you use the Cloud Method, your woman's perfume could fade faster as most of it was probably lost in the air. Also the Cloud Method avoids those pressure points that help warm and revive your perfume. Parfum Tom Ford
