Smell like vanilla


Vanilla is one of the most common notes found in fragrances. It smells so good, especially the vanilla dominant fragrances in the market. To smell like vanilla all day, you need to have a complete routine starting from shower to layering your fragrances.

In this article, we’ll cover each and every step to smell like vanilla all day long.

1. Body Scrub

The first and foremost step is to scrub your body. Scrubbing your body removes all the dead skin cells and makes your skin smooth and bouncy to set your skin further for smelling like vanilla all day.

I personally use body scrubs from Dove, as they make my skin so soft and smooth, and also provides a lighter skin complexion after I use it.

You can use these 2 body scrubs that I’ve been using since 2022 and it works wonders:

  1. Dove Exfoliating Body Polish- Crushed Macadamia And Rice Milk
  2. Dove Exfoliating Body Polish Scrub- Brown Sugar & Coconut Butter
  3. Tree Hut Vanilla Shea and Sugar Scrub

2. Vanilla Scented Shower Gels

The first step in your skincare routine (if you skip scrubbing) is to use shower gels that have vanilla fragrance. The burst of vanilla during your shower sets the stage for a delightful aroma that lingers and creates a good base for your skincare routine.

The shower gels with vanilla are as follows:

  1. Dove Pampering Body Wash Shea Butter and Vanilla Scent
  2. Vanilla Bean Noel by Bath and Body Works
  3. Warm Vanilla Sugar by Bath and Body Works
  4. Bare Vanilla by Victoria’s Secret
  5. Native Coconut and Vanilla Body Lotion

3. Vanilla Scented Body Lotion

After your shower, apply vanilla-based body lotion. Notice how the sweet scent of vanilla becomes a part of your skin. This step not only nourishes your skin but also adds a layer to your fragrance, transforming your skincare routine into a pampering session too.

To smell like vanilla all day, here are some of the vanilla scented body lotions you can apply:

  1. Vanilla Bean Noel by Bath and Body Works
  2. Warm Vanilla Sugar by Bath and Body Works
  3. Bare Vanilla by Victoria’s Secret
  4. Native Coconut and Vanilla Body Lotion

4. Vanilla Body Mists

To smell like vanilla all day, the next step is to pick a body mist that has a vanilla fragrance. Ofcourse, it depends whether you want your vanilla to be a more dominant or a subtle one.

I personally prefer Bare Vanilla by Victoria’s Secret. The fragrance is very classy and sexy, and lasts for a good 5-6 hours on clothes.

Here are the vanilla body mists you can try out:

  1. Vanilla Bean Noel by Bath and Body Works
  2. Phlur Vanilla Skin Hair and Body Mist
  3. Warm Vanilla Sugar by Bath and Body Works
  4. Bare Vanilla by Victoria’s Secret
  5. Vanilla Buttercream by Bath and Body Works

Apply the body mist on your clothes and your skin. This will make you smell good like a vanilla.

5. Perfumes with Vanilla Notes

When trying to smell like vanilla, always top up your skincare layering game with a perfume. Perfumes have a higher concentration and unlike body mists, they last longer and project good as well.

Many fragrance brands are competing with each other to make the best vanilla fragrance they can, and one of them which I love and adore the most is Kayali Vanilla 28. Especially when I layer it with Bare Vanilla body mist, it’s a game over for everyone. It smells so damn good, I was literally sniffing myself while I was testing Vanilla 28 out, it smelt like white chocolate mixed with vanilla.

If your man is around you while you wear this fragrance, he will be all over you.

Here are some of the vanilla fragrances which you may like:

  1. Kayali Vanilla 28
  2. Burberry Goddess
  3. Philosophy Fresh Cream Warm Cashmere EDT
  4. Billie Eilish Eilish
  5. Mancera Royal Vanilla
  6. Montale Sweet Vanilla
  7. Jimmy Choo Vanilla Love
  8. Dior Vanilla Diorama EDP
  9. The Body Shop Vanilla EDT

6. Proper Application of Perfume

Spray your vanilla fragrances right behind your ears, on your neck, on your collar bones, on your pulse points and also on your clothes. This will make your fragrance project good as well.

Proper application of the perfume is important as it will allow your fragrance to unfold unexpectedly. You and the person sitting next to you will get a whiff of your fragrance whenever the wind blows or as you walk past him.
