Although this fragrance may not be the newest arrival on the market, it has just been added to our inventory and we are falling in love. This is an oriental vanilla that was launched in 1993. Comptoir Sud Pacifique was founded in 1976, and is inspired by the spirit of the South Seas. Many of their fragrances are beautiful vanilla-infused scents. This one, however, really caught our attention and has become a September favorite. The jackfruit, apricot, and papaya round out the scent’s sweet sugary notes making for a smooth-sweet-tropical concoction. This is a heavenly gourmand scent, dripping in vanilla.
Imagine a warm vanilla cake with apricot syrup drizzled atop. This is sweet, but not enough to be cloying. It is too smooth to become a nuisance. Vanilla and gourmand lovers, please don’t pass this one up. This lasts about 3-5 hours on the skin and is absolutely wonderful for late summer into fall.
