Product Review: Lavanila Laboratories Vanilla Grapefruit

This is my new scent for Spring. Honestly I'm not a big fan of vanilla scented anything so I'm shocked that I love this product so much. I bought the .32 oz rollerball size so I can pack it in the makeup bag that I keep in my purse. Just a couple of dabs on my pulse points and I can smell it all day. A sample of this fragrance was included in the "Naturally Gorgeous" envelope that Sephora was giving out a couple of months ago. I didn't want to use up my sample because I'm hoping to take it on a trip in late June. This bottle is simply not enough, I'll probably get the larger size in a future Sephora Spree. The smell is heavenly. Lightly scented with vanilla and a hint of citrus, the scent is very sweet - almost like a great dessert. Personally I love sweet "girl next door" kind of smells but I hate musk and I hate flowery scents so its hard to find a sweet scent that I like. This is probably not something I'd wear out at night but it is the perfect scent for daytime and its not overpowering if you are looking for something work appropriate. The description from the Sephora Website lists the fragrance notes as: grapefruit, bergamot, lime, orange, cedarwood, heliotrope, and Madagascar Vanilla. Also this earned Sephora's natural seal because it is formulated without: parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, petro-chemicals, phthalates, GMO, and triclosan. Their rollerball size sales for $18.
