Sweet and delicate...
This is my continuation of the French company Comptoir Sud Pacifique and their perfume line inspired by the smells of the South Pacific islands. As with many of this line, Vanille Amande is a gourmand fragrance. It smells edible, and quite delicious.

With Vanille Amande or "Almond Vanilla" is another fragrance from their line which, like many others, stays true to it's name. It's notes include two types of almond, combined with creamy Tahitian vanilla (the connection to the South Pacific comes specifically from Tahiti, the capital island of French Polynesia, and also where a type of Vanilla is grown).

To me, the fragrance opens up with a sweet almond blossom note, and a sugary, amaretto like note, very reminiscent of an almond liquor. As with most fragrances from this like, it is sweet, but not cloying. Instead I find that this is quite delicate and very easy to wear. I got 4-5 hours of wearing before it died down to a very faint sugary skin scent.

I think this could work best in spring and summer, I think it is otherwise too light to be worn in colder weather. I have heard that it was first discontinued by the company, but recently relaunched. However I have not found it on their official website.

Overall, there are a couple of fragrances I could recommend above this one, the first is Aqua di Parma - Mandorlo di Sicilia. That one is a fantastic investment and with a lot more body than this one; and the other is Cartier - Le Baiser du Dragon, which is a very rich, deep, spicy take on amaretto and very luxurious.

I am impressed with the Comptoir Sud Pacifique line, and whilst I thought I would like this fragrance a lot more than I did, I still think there are better alternatives out there. Vanille Amande is a pleasant one, but not everything I am looking for in a perfume.
