Here's what other people are saying about Vanille Givree des Antilles...
I keep hoping that Thierry Mugler will do a flanker of Angel that has a strong, sweet vanilla note. But that's basically what Givree already smells like. It's the type of spicy patchouli that's so recognizable in Angel, mixed with a pillowy, marshmallowy, sweet vanilla. Simple, but I love this fragrance. I also love its low price point and great staying power.

If you enjoyed Fendi (original version)that has been discontinued, then you will enjoy this. As soon as I sprayed it on my skin I was taken back in time to the 1990's, Fendi perfume, Alanis on the radio.... Rich, woodsy, slightly sweet, yet gentle, leaving breathing room. It is much more forgiving than the classic Fendi smell. This is a complex vanilla, not for your "sweet tooth" lover. This is a fall or winter scent due to this complexity and spicy feel.

Ahh...a patch I can live with and enjoy. Clean patch can become so grating (to me anyway), but this combination holds the yummy vanilla forward and the patch obediently in its place. FBW.

Very pretty scent - sort of reminds me of Angel, but much much MUCH more subtle. Also doesn't have the chocolate sandalwood notes that I get in Angel. I'll use the sample I bought but won't order a full bottle: doesn't last very long and a bit more perfumy than I would like.

Drop. Dead. Gorgeous. No other vanilla comes close.

The bottles from sephora have and an exp date for sept 08. Read your bottles and if you go to the the La Maison de la Vanille website you will notice that they have new bottles. That is probably why Sephora had the mark down. To play it safe I would ask any etailer if you will be receiving the new bottle. Who wants a nearly exp fragrance anyway? I am a fan of all their fragrances Tahiti is my favorite and if I had to do without one it would be Antilles. If anyone knows if there has been a reformulation, please let us know.

Wow. To think that I got this for $5 at Sephora. No, really. I haven't opened it yet. It still has the cellophane wrapper around it. I also got another one of this line, but I forget the name. I got it free as I work at S.

Angel has been my signature scent for years, and I must say that only the top notes in Vanille Givree des Antilles smell like Angel. Indeed, it smells almost identical right out of the bottle, but the dry-down is much softer and sweeter-the patchouli is barely discernable. I cannot give this scent five stars because it just does not last on me-it's more like a body splash. This scent is available at Sephora for $20 if you love it and like me need to reapply it throughout the day. Angel lovers will find that this scent adds extra sweetness when worn with Angel, and I think it is also a great option for those who think Angel is too heavy for summer wear.

Love this. Period. I love foody scents but don't love some of the ones that make you feel like a cupcake. This is perfect. Just enough vanilla to still want to eat it- but it almost becomes your natural scent. It just dries so nicely and doesn't come across as foody. I have the lotion but might need to get the EDT too!

was a little leary about the patchouli at first, but the vanilla rounds it out nicely. it lends an "earthiness" without smelling dirty or hippy-ish. definitely not foody, you won't smell like ice cream wearing's a keeper

What a great combo! I feel warm and wonderful when I wear this. My boyfriend came over and tested a few samples with me and before I could tell him it was my fav he went berzirk. I had to try this after reading the comment below. I too wear Lolita Lempicka and am looking for something for an every once in a while change. I love love love this scent!

I just got back from Sephora where I was on my way to buy Coco Mademoiselle. Because I had some time, I actually stopped to smell a few bottles along the way, and this was one of them. My signature scent is Lolita Lempicka and I occasionally wear Angel, so this smell - for this price - seemed like a God-send. I forgot about the Coco Mmslle and bought this instead. I've only had it on for an hour, but I can't stop smelling my wrists... it's delicious! It is similar to Lolita and Angel, but it should be great day perfume because on me the vanilla is the most prevalant of the scents, then the patchouli. In summation, I smell yummy and I love it.

I am so sorry but I have to join the trend. It smells like Angel. :(

This is one one my new favorite perfumes . . . and though I have not sampled them all, my favorite so far out of the La Maison de Vanille line. The critics are right that it is not a pure vanilla. It is darker, but still very sweet and subtle. I think it will make the perfect fall perfume . . . it reminds of drying leaves, bonfires. A little spicy but pleasently so . . . lacking the pepper of muskier orientals which can sometimes be overbearing and far too masculine. It evolves nicely over time as well, a very complex perfume.

An Ode to La Maison and Luckyscent: This was it. The first fragrance that led me down the most delightfully scented primrose path to niche parfums. Thanks to Luckyscent's accurate description and the comments section, I found one of my first loves. This is the scent I want to drench myself with in the autumn/winter months. Sexy-Comfort, all the way. It may not be a "true vanilla", but for many it is fabulous. And so affordable! I think Vanille Sauvage de Madasgacar (also an incredible scent) is actually the least sweet in the line; Vanille Givree des Anitlles is the sexy-woodsy-oriental one ;) Worth a try!

I agree with some of the others-my least fave of all the Maison line. If you're looking for a true vanilla smell, this is not it. Has undetones that smell a bit strong and definitely overpowers any vanilla included in this scent. Not a straight-up, clean vanilla. Doesn't have that clean, sweet, light scent that I look for in Vanilla's.

What is it about this incredible fragrance?! I am drawn to this fragrance, I want this fragrance on me or near me at all times! Foody, exotic, comforting. At little bit of spice; immediate attraction!
