I'm not a vanilla-scented bad guy, am I?
Hey guys, I want you to meet a vanilla fragrance, Vanilla Marble by Agonist!
I know that the scent sounds very wintery, but when I tried the scent here, it was just 22 or 23 degrees and very pleasant, instead of gathering around like the last days at 35-40 degrees, where you had the feeling of standing at the gates of hell and getting all the heat off without the slightest chance to cool down... bah! Why can't it just be cooler all the time? But luckily the heat wave seems to be over for at least a week or so! Well, we'll see...

Sure, now you're telling me for the thousandth time that a cooler summer would only make me happy because I wouldn't have a girlfriend (bah, I've probably mentioned that a thousand times now, so it's probably my own fault if you say something like that, but at least you can build good lyrics on that, where you can twist your eyes :DD). Probably you even think that I would stare outside like a little villain from a dark loophole and be happy that all couples would be sad about it when the weather is worse, mu ha ha ha ha. But that's not true (quite! :D), I just don't like extreme heat (or when it's extremely humid). Well, maybe a hot summer with a girlfriend really is better bearable (uh, you know, shared suffering is half suffering?? :D), because you could do funny things together in the heat than to stare outside from the loophole alone and wish for icy cold, but still, hot is hot and everything over 30 degrees is no longer a "nice summer" for me!

... and I keep digressing... no matter, as I said: luckily it's not hellishly hot at the moment, so I can try heavier fragrances without suffocating. The only thing such scents do to me again is to give me the feeling that I would like to have winter now and above all .... of course ... Christmas would have ... *sigh* about half a year until this contemplative time ... waaah, I finally want to set up my Christmas tree again!!! *sigh* (See, I'm making progress, now I didn't complain that I didn't have a girlfriend, but because it's not Christmas yet :D I'll whine and/or complain about women again in one of my upcoming commissions, mu ha ha ha :DD).

Okay, that's enough bullshit, now let's get to the scent!

The fragrance:
The fragrance starts with Tiáre, which smells sweet-floral (and I almost confused it with Tiramisu again because of the name... :D). But shortly afterwards an intense vanilla and an equally strong almond appear. The almond smells nice and tangy, the vanilla is usually powdery-sweet. In the background you can sometimes find very weak and fruity scents, but you can't identify them. In the fragrance pyramid there is fig, but I can only smell it after I have read that there is fig in it.
After a little later the fruity notes fade away, the fragrance continues to smell further and heavier of vanilla and almond. Every now and then earthy scents appear, which should be the patchouli and bring a little change. Otherwise it smells almost exclusively of vanilla and almond (and later almost only of vanilla), whereby the smell comes over as described quite powdery and gently, but now and then also somewhat dry.

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is above averagely good, so that one is wrapped in a small fragrance cloud and can be smelled well in the proximity. For a vanilla fragrance, the fragrance holds noticeably less than other vanilla fragrances, since the fragrance gradually says goodbye after eight to ten hours, which is of course also very good.

The bottle:
The bottle is rectangular and narrow. On the front you can see the typical and striking label of the brand, which occupies the entire front and lists the fragrance contents in capital letters written in block letters. Despite its simplicity, I think the bottle is quite nice, because the label is something different. The fragrances with a black label are a bit more beautiful, though.

Okay, so Vanilla Marble is a nice vanilla scent. Sure, vanilla and almond are dream scents especially for many ladies and this combination smells really very good, but you have to realize that most of the scent actually only smells of these two scents (and much later even like vanilla almost only of vanilla), so that there is a little lack of real variety and secondly the scent hardly differs from the many other vanilla scents.

But apart from that and the fragrance itself, Vanilla Marble has of course become a very beautiful fragrance, which not only convinces with its great fragrance, but also with its gentle feeling. The scent of it belongs in any case into autumn and winter and can be used in these cooler seasons both for itself (to cuddle in a soft blanket or to cuddle with the hangover) and for going out and smelling nice.

Sooo, excuse me if I started whining about the summer. Unfortunately I will complain again in winter, because then I would have no one to cuddle, he he. All right, I have the hangover, but you know what I mean! D Apart from that, the cat's breath always smells so fishy when he stares at me sleepy and has to yawn, mu ha ha ha, baah! :DD

All right, that's it again. The scent is nice and testable, and I have now arrived at the end. Therefore I wish you all a nice evening, until the next time :)

Simple, so shallow!
Although this perfume is considered a unisex, I think it is more a woman'scent due to its sweetness. It starts by vanilla and ens up with vanilla. On my colour scale it is a yellow with a tinge of purple(I cannot say what could be purple in the list of ingredients). It is a linear scent, without sillage. It stays close to the skin and I think one can get a better result if sprayed on a scarf or on wool.

Get your Sweet On!
Top Shelf vanilla just about sums this up. My sample was tested just before bed and it was a very good choice because this dreamy fragrance simply lulled me right to sleep. This is a comfort scent, made specifically for the sweet lovers in the house. Vanilla Marble is flirty enough to be worn on a lunch date on girls day out yet sophisticated enough to wear when you are planning to rock your come hither look.

It seems that the Almond listed was used to spike the Vanilla up a notch and it worked. This is hard-core finely tuned Breyers. Yes, Breyers ... all natural ingredients.

Waking up is morning, the sweetness had died down considerably leaving just a faint hint of the sweetness but not completely worn away. Either I slept through the sandalwood phase or maybe my oncoming cold intercepted my woods because I didn't get to enjoy the dry down. I highly recommend this fragrance to those who like to get their sweet on!

Thank you Flacounner for January's giveaway.
