Rating: Not so impressed with this one on its own. Yes vanilla smell but not french vanilla. Mixed with other scents it really goes well with the amber romance.
By:Tiffany, Brantford, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Aug-2011
Rating: This is the best vanilla FO that NDA sells. It's not a true vanilla (you need 10 fold or absolute for that), but enough that you know what it is. Very softly sweet aroma.
By:Louise, Hamilton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 17-May-2015
Rating: This is a very strong vanilla scent which is great on its own but also blends well with a wide variety of other fragrances. My favorite is a 50-50 blend of this with NDA's French Lavender fragrance oil. Strong scent throw (both hot and cold) in soy candles.
Rating: I think this is my favorite so far of all the vanilla scents. Smells really wonderful. No acceleration noted in CP soap but does discolor to a very dark brown.
By:Victoria, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 13-May-2013
Rating: Love this scent. Can be mixed with other scents to add a little softness or warmth to them. I love the vanilla scent.
By:Gisele, Halifax, Nova Scotia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 23-Nov-2012
Rating: I have a customer who raves about this scent in my cold process soap shaped like wedges of pie, she purchases it often for gifts as well as herself.It does discolor the soap but with vanilla scent the customers like it.
Rating: Delicious, but it doesn't have that nice natural vanilla scent that I expected. It smells like cream soda, which is how I am going to market it, because it. And I definitely don't smell the coconut that is supposed to be in it.
By:Kayla, Calgary, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 13-Apr-2010
Rating: Very nice scent, but not strong enough for soy wax. I had to use 3 times the amount I would normally use, and the throw is still weak. Maybe nice in soaps and creams though.
Rating: Not as natural as I would have liked...was hoping for a more vanilla extract scent, but still very appealing!

Rating: I LOVE THIS!!!! YUMMY!!! so good you almost want to eat it!
By:Stephanie, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Aug-2010
Rating: I used this scent in just regular melt and pour. I didn't realize it would turn the soap dark brown. Next time I'm hoping to buy the vanilla stabelizing soap. Customers luv this scent. It works well in melt and pour and the soy wax for candles
Rating: Smells very true and discolours to very dark brown in CP soap.

Rating: I use this in my soaps it just smells great I also use the maple as well couldn't choose just one.
By:Mark, Sydney, Nova Scotia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Dec-2008
Rating: I like this vanilla. It's not quite as rich and sensuous as I'd hoped but very nice. I used lots of cocoa butter in the soap and that enhanced the scent. My kids' favourite soap.

Rating: Just a quick update...made cp soap with this sent four weeks ago. I used 2.5 oz to scent 4 pounds of soap. It did not acelerate trace, and did not discolour immediately. I knew it would discolour at some point, so I used 2 Tbsp. of titanium dioxide to try and combat the depth of brown, scored the top with a fork so that it would look like cake. Now that it's fully cured, it's a medium shade of brown...a cooler shade, not warm. I've called it Vanilla Fudge as it suits the scent and the appearance. I will try more titanium dioxide next time and see if I can't lighten it further. Smells delicious....good enough to eat!

Rating: I haven't tried this scent in cp or hp soap yet, so can't comment on coloring or acceleration of trace, but the aroma out of the bottle reminds me of homemade vanilla icecream; the kind that is made with an egg custard base. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Can't wait to smell it in soap!!

Rating: Warm, buttery and absolutely delicious, French Vanilla sells well and has a great scent throw in soaps and lotions alike. A little goes a long way with this scent, and the scent lingers gently.
By:Nicole, Windsor, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-May-2008
Rating: Very nice, warm, buttery vanilla...just what I was hoping for! Combines very well with Lavender EO.
Rating: This fragrance is so warm and delicious, it's what people have come to expect vanilla to smell like, mixes well with.....everything.
By:Colette, Alliston, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Mar-2007
Rating: Smells like typical vanilla frangrace. Warm and very sweet. Smells like typical vanilla candles.
By:Nelly, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 17-Dec-2006
Rating: This is a beautiful vanilla!! It turns CP soap dark brown (as most vanillas do) but the discoloration is worth it! I've been searching for a worthy vanilla for a long time, and I found it it this fragrance.
By:Carolyn, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 23-Feb-2007
Rating: A rich, lasting scent. A personal favourite.. Sweet and warm... smells just like a Tim Hortons Cappucino!
Rating: Very strong and sweet. Perhaps a little too candyish for me but people seem to really like it in soap!
By:Alexandra, Nanaimo, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-Mar-2007
Rating: French Vanilla is fabulous, and has a delicate scent that lasts all day long.
