8 Vanilla Fragrances For All Those Warm, Cosy Feels This Winter


It’s rather easy to go wrong with a vanilla fragrance. You want a scent that is youthful yet sophisticated, rather than cloying and headache-inducing. The goal is to find that yummy sweetness that reminds you of the cosy warmth inside your favourite bakery without actually smelling like a cupcake!

The best way to do that is to find a vanilla scent that is layered with floral, citrus, musky and other richer notes to strike that perfect balance. Take a look at some of our picks of vanilla fragrances…

Soft and dreamy, this is an amber vanilla fragrance for women. An extension of Victoria’s Secret’s iconic Tease fragrance, this EDP starts with a creamy, light-as-air whipped vanilla meringue sweetness and is followed by a floral heart of exotic santal flower of the sandalwood tree.
