I'm one of those simple souls who has a seriously hard time picking out perfume among the many complicated and overwhelming smells available on the market. It takes a truly unique and exquisite fragrance to convince me. When I found Le Labo's Paris Vanille 44, I instantly fell for it. Vanille 44 is part of Le Labo's City Exclusives line and can only be found in their Paris boutiques. The scent is not quite your typical vanilla. It is more like a dry vanilla pod with accents of guaiac wood (smoky rose), sexy amber, and muted vanilla bourbon. There's a crisp, airy, and clean quality to it. It is subtle and gentle, yet distinctive and modern. It's the kind of perfume that arouses not just interest, but excitement. With it's French origins, and the "44" representing the number of ingredients used, it carries a relaxed (and at the same time) sophisticated elegance. You'll want to spray it on repeatedly.
ICYWW: Le Labo believes in the soulful power of thoughtful hands and craftsmanship and so once you pick your scent, they freshly hand-blend your bottle.
