Here's what other people are saying about Tihota...
Finally, I'm able to try this fabled fragrance. Firstly I am surprised that it is much lighter-bodied than I had expected, with much subtler sillage and transparent tenacity. TIHOTA is also considerably more balsamic/ambered than I had expected; indeed, benzoin is more prominent in this scent than actual vanilla is, and the perfume relies on balsams more than vanilla bean for its effects. I confess... I'm a wee bit underwhelmed. It's a high quality, well-blended fragrance, though.

It's a scent of vanilla at its purest form. Sweet, simple and true heaven for vanilla lovers. I don't detect the musk, I think the musk just elevates the aroma of vanilla making it warm and opulent. I ordered a sample and couldn't order a full bottle fast enough. I also like to layer this perfume on top of other fragrances that need a touch of sweetness. I just love it!

This is a very sweet vanilla with just a bit of musk to keep it adult. It's something I love wearing in cooler temps to warm myself up with and fill the chill void. I wore it to bed last night and fell asleep sniffing myself. HA!

My story with this one is rather odd. I bought it for my wife. She initially loved it and wore obsessively, and now she can't stand it anymore. A sticky cloud of sweet vanilla followed everywhere she went while wearing it, and after a while it became too much of one note to bear. So I've brought it from the back of the cupboard and tried it myself, and I must say, on me, it's a great fragrance too, although less sticky and more dusty and musky. Still sweet, comforting, big teddy bear hug scent for grown-up girls (or boys). None so far commented it smells feminine on me. Good cold weather wear.

I've been looking for a perfume that smelled like vanilla but that wasn't overly sweet. I look at reviews and decided to buy a sample of this perfume...... I just received the sample and I'm about to buy the whole bottle. It smells sooooo delicious, I can't stop smelling. $200 is a lot of money but I think it's worth it because no other perfume smells this good.

I have searched in vain for a vanilla scent as good or even similar to this. I have sampled every Lucky Scent vanilla as well as others. [The dry-down of Dulcis in Fundo is close but no cigar.]There is just nothing as luscious and perfect as this. It should seem so simple [vanilla + musk] but it is not! My favorite of all time.

I had been dying to sample this for what felt like forever, so I finally bit the bullet and ordered tons of samples of lots of different perfumes here. Turns out, I DO love this scent, but here's the thing: To my nose, this is the same exact thing as Victoria's Secret Vanilla Lace. It's a very sweet vanilla pudding scent, and I wore it for years and years. Now, Vanilla Lace is long discontinued, but I DO still have several bottles of perfume as well as the body spray, AND I have an oil dupe. So I really don't need to pay $200 for a bottle of Tihota. Yet. Someday, yes, I'll get it. But just now I can't justify it. Of course Tihota is a step up in quality, but if you want to know what it smells like, there you go!

If you like vanilla then this is for you,. I get compliments in the form of mmm you smell like chocolate or cookies or something yummy to eat. Both men and women love the smell of this beauty on me. I get a bottle evry year for my birthday

Rich, delicious vanilla. Very well put together. Very linear. Straight up, no frills vanilla. I like that it is simple yet not boring. Absolutely comforting. I think this is more appropriate for those up close and personal encounters.

Like Julie below, I too am a vanilla-aholic ("Hello Melissa!"). Tihota really is the best of the best. If you find that it smells 'cheap', I'm really curious to hear your favorites, sincerely. Always on the lookout for more! That said, it does mix well with other perfumes. I am a huge fan of 'turning down' scents a degree or two by applying tihota. Example: I happen to like Tuberose but most perfumes are just TOO much tuberose, so I mix it with Tihota and it's perfect and turns it into something even better. Just wanted to throw that out there for others in case they were curious. :)

I found it: THE most exquisite vanilla scent I have ever encountered... It makes you FEEL sexy, special.... So much depth to this fragrance - it has to be smelled to be believed... It lasts for at least 12 hours on me and just gets better throughout the day.

I tried a sample and was hooked but I was reluctant to spend so much on a treat for myself so I requested it for Mother's Day! This scent is rich, warm and sweet but not cloyingly so. It is quite subtle and personal scent. Delicious!

I have to agree with everyone's Comptoir and similar comparisons. I should have paid more attention to the fact that the word "sugar" is part of the description. The opening notes smell incredibly similar to that Pink Sugar fragrance everyone was wearing awhile back. I would hope if you put them side by side, this one would be different. This smells like cotton candy. I only ordered a sample, thankfully. It may be good for layering with a muskier fragrance, but it's too sugary sweet on it's own.

I agree with others that this is an absolutely delish vanilla. But, so are many others that don't cost near as much. My current rave is Vanille Givree de Antilles--not as sweet, and maybe not quite as heady-yum... but still awesome for a lot less money.

I had ultra high hopes for this one. Unfortunately, to me, it smells shockingly similar to some of the Comptoir Sud Pacifique offerings, which can be borderline cheap-smelling and sickly sweet. The smell of it on my skin actually reminded me of those Vanilla-scented Secret deodorant sticks I used to wear in high school. As if that wasn't enough to turn me off, a little while after I had spritzed some on myself, a woman in the subway who had come to sit next to me promptly got up and moved to another seat further away! I certainly don't think it smells bad -- it is overall enjoyable. But for $200 a bottle, I was hoping for a lovely, grown-up, refined vanilla... not something that gives me flashbacks of high school.

I have been addicted to Tihota since its introduction in 2006. I am a vanilla-aholic, and am always trying anything new with vanilla notes. But Tihota is the one scent that I continue to prefer over all others. I keep one bottle at work and one at home. It's not spicy or overpowering. It's a soothing vanilla - single note - and that's exactly what I want.

This smell delicious just like comptoir and serendipity however no projection or staying power. I'm looking for vanilla that has projection and staying power. I feel it deserves a review and four stars because, it is delicious but the price is just too much. However for those who are happy with this price tag, go for it i'll stick with comptoir for now. Still on hunt for a delicious vanilla that will get noticed.

Delicious vanilla scent and very long lasting. But that's all. It is a very creamy, sweet, caramel like, cake, vanilla sugar scent. It lasted all day and night. I think there are many other simple and sweet vanilla fragrances on the market for much less expense. Almost all the Lavanilla fragrances could be purchased in a lovely variety for the same price as one bottle of this one.

I purchased samples of Tihota, Acqua e Zucchero, The Exact Friction Of Stars, and several other scents starring vanilla. Tihota is very diluted, it would be glorious if it had more strength, it is a watery, diluted echo of a fragrance.
