I received a bottle of the Lavanila Vanilla Summer perfume for Christmas and I thought it may beneficial for any persons curious about the brand to compose a review on the product. Several months ago my sister gave me a sample of their Pure Vanilla perfume and I absolutely loved it, so receiving the Vanilla Summer scent as a gift was a pleasant surprise.
LaVanila is a rather unique fragrance company. They specialize in perfumes and deodorants (available for purchase via Sephora and through their website), and all of their products are free of Parabens, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, Propylene Glycol, Mineral Oils, Silicone, Synthetic Dyes, Synthetic Fragrances, Chemical Sunscreens, Sulfates or Aluminum. Their products are furthermore vegan and cruelty free, and there is a statement on their website claiming that all of their merchandise is appropriate for the most sensitive of skin because it is all safe, non-toxic and non-irritating.
To be honest, I definitely prefer their Pure Vanilla fragrance over their Vanilla Summer fragrance, but the Vanilla Summer scent is still quite pleasant. The Vanilla Summer perfume contains a base scent of Madagascar vanilla and offers hints of mango, pineapple, coconut and island sugar cane. Its description sounds a lot better than it actually smells, but as I stated the scent is still quite nice. Lavanila fragrances contain antioxidants that benefit the skin whilst being worn and provides a subtle scent of fragrance for several hours. The Pure Vanilla scent definitely lasts longer on the skin than the Vanilla Sumer scent, however.
The average perfume bottle retails for $60.00 and comes in numerous scents, all of them beginning with a vanilla base. Vanilla blackberry, vanilla passionfruit, vanilla lemon, vanilla lavender, vanilla grapefruit and vanilla coconut are some of their scents, and I imagine they all smell lovely.
In conclusion, I do not think I would purchase the Vanilla Summer scent again, but I would re-purchase their Pure Vanilla fragrance. If you’re a fan of vanilla this brand is definitely for you, and as an added bonus it is a healthier alternative to most scents.
