elysia: I also have the hand cream, and that doesnt smell as nice as the body spray. I think that it is possible to have a bad batch. why dont you go back to VS and try the tester. If it still smells synthetic, then maybe its just not for you. Alot of people have posted L'Occitane Vanille, I wanted to try it, and sorry to hear its discontinued.

It would make a nice summer fragrance, though, if that is what you are looking for.

I also find that the lasting power of this perfume is weaker than other Anna Sui fragrances. I guess this probably explains the butterfly-shaped bottle - the scent is definitely beautiful, but fleeting. If you want an Anna Sui fragrance that smells wonderful and lasts, get Dreams instead.

I hope this helped!

It sured helped honey!!!
Thank you so much! I was also interested in the Dreams fragance.

I tried my bottle of Vanilla Lace again today, and what do you know? I like it now! It is the kind of scent that will grow on me, I am sure. Thank you for encouraging me to try it again!

You can still get a bottle of L'Occitane Vanille on eBay UK. There is a seller there under the username 'tropicanauk' whom I have bought from on several occasions. He has been putting up many L'Occitane Vanille auctions recently, and I can personally attest to the authenticity of his goods.

Good luck!

Oooh, I have also been dousing myself in it lately! I adore how the patchouli in it is of such a high quality that it smells like freshly-cut summer grass.

Christian Dior Higher Energy, Gucci, and Chanel Homme. I rarely use cologne, but the Dior smells so good.

Something my boyfriend got for me which is absolutely gorgeous .. and I'm looking to buy Thierry Mugler's Angel soon .. I was in a department store and one of the guys that work there gently grabbed my wrist when I walked past (naughty!) and sprayed some on .. I didnt really like it but when I got home..I could still smell it, it was sooooo nice .. I guess you really need to let perfume sink in for you to smell it properly!
