Not the best vanilla
Whenever someone asks for a vanilla recommendation, The Body Shop Vanilla EDT is almost always suggested. As an avid vanilla fan, I made it my priority to visit The Body Shop and give it a fair chance.

In all honesty, I've smelt better vanilla scents, however it is certainly pleasant on the skin. My only suggestion is to enjoy it in its middle stages, as I found the opening and drydown quite mediocre.

Vanilla EDT opens with a somewhat chemical vanilla note and sharp fruits. I wasn't overly impressed at first, but as I mentioned before, I found the heart much more pleasing. The scent settled into a smooth, slightly creamy and inoffensively sweet vanilla blend with subtle hints of apricot and white florals.

Although sweet, I wouldn't call it particularly foody. When I think of vanilla, I picture a delicious gourmand. This fragrance tends to be sugary and powdery, but not in an edible sense.

The drydown is where the musk accords are at their most prominent. I usually enjoy the smell of musk, however in this fragrance it blends with the vanilla to create a dusty and stale scent. It reminds me of the scent of bed sheets that have been stored away for awhile in a dark cupboard, only to be shaken out a few months later. It's the mustiness that puts me right off.

I barely remember smelling The Body Shop's Vanilla Oil, but I do recall being disappointed in having expected so much more. I have almost the same sentiment towards Vanilla EDT.

Sweet and Happy
As the name suggests, that's a perfume dominated by vanilla note. It smells delicious not necessarily in an artificial way. Could be overwhelming if you don't like sweet fragrances.

TBS's Vanilla puts me in a happy mood and always gets me compliments.
