Newest baby: L’Artisan Vanille Absolument

Dear Scent Diary,

18820-vabbIs there anything more exciting than a perfume sized package in the mailbox? My husband knows of and supports my obsession, and yet I still attempt to contain myself in his presence when this holiest of holy occasion occurs. I forced myself to put a few groceries away first so as to appear ‘normal’ before I ripped open the box with glee.

L’Artisan Vanille Absolument starts as a true to life, spicy vanilla pod: leathery, a bit tart, and vanillic without any hint of sugariness or baked goods. Then the notes that gave this scent its original name, Havana Vanille enter the fray: rum and pipe tobacco. It’s gorge. The way the notes read, it sounds quite masculine, but the balmy vanilla (it has an overall sweetness but is in no way toothache inducing) makes it very wearable for a woman. High five, Bertrand Duchaufour.

It’s love, Diary.
