Cotton Candy Sweet...
Lovann goes on with sugary sweet cotton candy-like vanilla. Moving to the early heart the cotton candy-like hyper sweet vanilla continues as sole star adding in an underlying slight buttery coconut milk facet as support. As the progression continues through the composition's middle, the super-sweet aspect of the vanilla slowly recedes, as the vanilla adds an extremely slight dirty gauze-like undertone to the now moderately sweet coconut milk infused vanilla. During the late dry-down the vanilla finally recedes to a supporting role as it joins a slightly tart vague synthetic smelling fruity accord through the finish. Projection is average to above average and longevity excellent at well over 12 hours on skin.

With Lovann we finally come to the end of my individual sampling journey of the Santi Burgas Loant collection, and the journey ends with a relative whimper. Lovann starts off as a highly simplistic and disappointing sugary sweet vanilla gourmand concoction that will scare away most who dislike sweet compositions within seconds of application, looking for any means possible to scrub the tenacious juice off. Luckily, things do get better as time passes, with the sweetness going from intolerable to just moderately annoying. There is an odd, difficult to place underlying accord that adds what can best be described as a hint of dirtiness to the vanilla, but my guess is this is actually a different facet of vanilla entirely, featuring its more raw unrefined natural bean aspect versus the artificial cotton candy-like processed open. The mild tart fruity dry-down is probably the best part of the composition, but it takes hours to get to, and I suspect most will have "left the building" well before reaching it. In the end, maybe gourmand fans will enjoy Lovann more than I, but to me it is no better than hundreds of other gourmand duds on the market. The bottom line is the 89 Euro per 50ml bottle Lovann is a highly uninteresting vanilla gourmand with a super-sweet open that will scare away the sweetness averse, earning it a "below average" 2 to 2.5 stars out of 5 and a modest avoid recommendation to all but sugary sweet gourmand lovers.

The Funhouse Mirror of Vanilla
In the first five minutes, LoVann presents vanilla, specifically the smell of vanilla ice cream, but vanilla ice cream gone wrong. It's the kind of vanilla that you might smell on a stripper wearing a baby doll in the middle of an act. It's tawdry; it's off; like perhaps the stripper dripped some ice cream down her chest -- I won't go any further with the analogy, but you get the point. Ten minutes on, it congeals into a vanilla-powdery thing that is semi-fruity and completely artificial. I imagine that you might smell this in the air at a Victoria's Secret knockoff store. Plus, I'm allergic to it.

As the scent continues, it becomes wholly female as well as powdery and generic. The projection ramps down to 1/2 a foot in an hour and a half. I can see where this wanted to go (classy, powdery, elegant), but it just ends up lost in a chemical maze en route. Towards the end, Lovann even turns skanky and playdough-y. Finally, I fell asleep, bored into unconsciousness.

Warm, soft, cuddly - I like it
Fanfan20 has told you a lot already - LoVann is a basenote module that is destined to layer with the linker module LoAnt and one of the three topnote modules LoRose, LoBitt or LoJazz. It's perfectly wearable on its own as well.
In general I find the concept very exciting, although the wheel isn't reinvented here (then again, why should it?). Etro or TheBodyShop for example did some similar systems that found some success in the market.

LoVann is a warm, gourmand vanilla scent with fresh, zesty red apple that bares big similarity to the likes of Lann Ael or Traversee du Bosphore. Both scents I own/owned and love/loved and therefore LoVann is predestined to appeal to me - which it does ;-)
On its own LoVann is quite detectable, although not necessarily space-filling. I tried the combination with LoRose and noted that the vanilla scent stays more in the background and warms up the rose scent, making it turn out rounder and softer, yet it loses a bit of its presence. There isn't much developement in LoVann (worn solely). All notes are there from the beginning and stay there over the course of time. However it loses most of its zesty fruitiness after about 2 hours.

If I wouldn't own Lann Ael, LoVann would be something I would buy because I really like it and think it's a nice, cuddly scent.
