LAVANILA's Limited Edition Vanilla Summer-Healthy Smells Heavenly

LAVANILA Limited Edition Vanilla Summer Rollerball ($19)

I love fragrance and I'm a sucker for anything seasonal or limited edition AND my favorite season is summer, so I was bound to love LAVANILA's Vanilla Summer fragrance, right? RIGHT! Just listen to how the fragrance is described:

"Breathtaking sunsets meet the sounds of lapping waves in this limited-edition summer fragrance. Escape and experience the irresistible, long-lasting summer blend of fresh mango, juicy pineapple, creamy coconut milk, and island sugar cane steeped in base of warm Madagascar vanilla. Created by master natural perfumers, this effortlessly sexy fragrance is made with the finest natural ingredients, and instilled with essential vitamins and minerals that pamper the body and soul. The Healthy Fragrance is all-natural, 100 percent healthy, and completely free of harsh and possibly toxic chemicals. Organic sugar cane alcohol is infused with pure essential oils and vitamin-rich technology so what???s left on your skin is body beneficial vitamins bursting with beauty benefits."

With notes of mango, pineapple, coconut milk, sugar cane, and Madagascar vanilla, not only is it the summer scent of my dreams, it smells good enough to eat. I generally don't go for vanilla fragrances {they tend to be cloying and too sweet}, but if you read the blog regularly, you know that I make a huge exception for just about everything Lavanila Laboratories makes. They know how to do vanilla right!  LAVANILA's Vanilla Summer has just enough brightness to make it fresh and perfect for the summer, but it's mellow enough to come off as mature and effortlessly sexy. It's one of those fragrances that you catch a whiff of and can't help but smile. 

And did I mention that it is a "healthy" fragrance? LAVANILA is committed to "using only those natural, skin beneficial ingredients that nurture the soul and nurture the skin.” They use all natural and organic ingredients, no harsh chemicals, do no animal testing and are eco friendly, use natural technology, and are vitamin rich; all very impressive for a fragrance (or any) company!

I got to try the rollerball size of the fragrance, which I love for it's on the go convenience. But I honestly love this fragrance so much that I'm thinking about shelling out the dough to get the full size bottle! That's how much I love it (not to mention, it's one of the few fragrances that I love and the hubby doesn't complain about). 

I'm actually excited to try even more scents from LAVANILA Laboratories. Will you be looking for Summer Vanilla next time you head to Sephora? Have you tried any of the other scents? What do you recommend? What smells like summer to you? My inquiring mind wants to know! Leave a comment below and let me know what you think. Until next time...
