It's all so vain
Vanitas Vanitatum et Omnia Vanitas
What now smells so splendid, will soon be wronged < br /> Nothing is that in the world can be imperishable
The fragrances glory must pass like a dream.
Ah! What is all this we esteem for delicious!
As beautiful nullity, as myrrh, pollen, vanilla sandal wind?
As a memory you won't find again.
(Thank you Andreas Gryphius)

For me, using a perfume is the baroque expression of Carpe Diem. Use the day. Of course, the perfume fades. Let it last ten hours. This is still only a short span of our lives. A great short span. Use the day. Use vanitas. Reward yourself with scents.

Vanitas is a flowery resinous woody vanilla reward. The projection is rather strong and the durability is certainly good. It's probably more women's stuff. Family tester M couldn't get anything out of him. You can wear it in winter, in the evening and for going out and leisure. At work there could be complaints or as Gryphius would say, "Now happiness shines sun, soon thunders with complaints." If Poetry-Slam is a sport, you can also wear vanitas to sport.

In any case, I am also quite vain and with vanitas even vain joy.

Cakey
My foray into this brand has met with some success: Vanitas is a satisfying cake. The opening is a bit medicinal. I can notice the citrus but not the myrrh unless that stinging medicinal note is that!

The sweet vanilla is just robust enough but it does not smell like vanilla pods but more like the whole baked cake covered in icing. Reminds me somewhat of the more sophisticated Note Vanillee. Vanitas is for yourself, when you want to smell like cake and eat it too.

falling in love with vanilla again
Vanitas is a gourmand delight and an olfactory antidepressant. The vanilla smells rich and decadent, with a citric sweetness from the orange blossom and some smokiness loaned by the myrrh. Vanitas would be the centre of attention not because of a unique personality but for being as delectable as a caloric-infested, caramelized sugar bundt cake and as sweet and charming as Snow White circa 1937 (especially the part where she sings Someday My Prince Will Come and the animals are dancing around her, every living creature as high as a kite). Sillage is soft but the longevity of this is ridiculously tenacious, no fear of it ever disappearing unless soap is applied with a strong arm. On the "interesting" scale, this lies at the polar opposite to Mona di Orio's Vanille, with Lutens' Un Bois Vanille in the middle of the scale and Tihota in Vanitas' camp. Vanitas would satisfy cravings for sweets whereas Mona's Vanille would enter a debate with you regarding the same.

Reminds me of the violet shaped candies old women used to keep in their purse. Sweet and medicinal vanilla with a lot of creamy myrrh.

Reminds initially of vanilla caramel with a slightly alcoholic syrup filling. Later, quite interesting tart note joins.
