psychotic vanilla
Evil vanilla Joker, laughing psychotically and snapping a whip. In other words... yes, interesting. But not too social-friendly. Well... yes, like the joker (I'm thinking of the one from "Dark Knight)“Why so serious?”

Super Gooey Vanilla Jasmine
More is definitely more in the case of Lush VANILLARY, which ramps up the goo factor already present in LUST to new heights. LUST is a fairly sweet jasmine perfume with major oomph and projection, but VANILLARY is a super-sweet vanilla jasmine perfume best suited as an "office scent" for employees of Lush--I mean the ones who manage the boutiques.

I sometimes work at the library and find myself next to a person wearing headphones attached to his MP3 player cranked up to maximum volume with the result that he is "entertaining" everyone else within a 10 meter radius. Sure, he thinks that he's listening privately to his rap music filled with sexist, violent verbiage, but in reality he's sharing the experience with everyone else in the room.

From such experiences, it has become clear to me that many people lose their auditory acuity through listening to very loud music stuck directly into their ears. In order to achieve the same satisfaction, they must turn the volume up higher and higher, to the point where their perceptions of what constitutes a reasonable sound level have become completely skewed.

That's how I feel about VANILLARY: it's an original, interesting combination of notes, but it is so thick and gooey and in your face that I cannot imagine wearing it anywhere--unless by chance one day I am driven by my spiraling perfume habit to obtain a job at Lush so that my nose is constantly filled with very strong, overpowering scents which are the olfactory equivalent of in-ear headphones set on maximum volume.

I've seen reviewers compare the Lush perfumes to Guerlain INSOLENCE, and in terms of longevity and sillage that seems right. The good news is that there is no plastic or hairspray here. Nonetheless, VANILLARY is equally over the top. Again, I am reminded of Serge Lutens: this is a fun journey to take, but how many times does one need to travel down this very same path?

It's a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live here.

Like sinking your nose into a pile of cooking vanilla powder, enough to make you cough or sneeze. A sweet vanilla-tonka overload.+2

Synthetic, plastic vanilla meets freshly baked buttery coconut flapjacks and ends with smoky tonka galore.+4
