Rating: To me, this one smells like a cake frosting type of vanilla whereas the "Vanilla" smells more like ice cream. They both work great in blends depending on what you're going for. Lately, I've been using this one more than the other.
Rating: I used this in a shea butter body cream. It smells exactly like Tahitian Vanilla by NDA. They're the same scent. A boozy butterscotch rum with a creamy and rich vanilla is how I'd describe it. My mom says it smells like cake icing and rum. It's very strong and it may overpower other scents blended with it. I mixed this with Vanilla lace and I don't smell the Vanilla lace at all.
Also, this doesn't smell like Vanilla Bean Noel to me. VBN is very heavy on the musk while this is very foody. A gourmande vanilla scent for sure. It's not your typical vanilla and I find it unique, sexy even.
Rating: I used this FO in beeswax candles. The cold throw and hot throw are indeed creamy, however, I find the Vanilla aspect fades a little when the candles are lit. I may pair it with something else next time to enhance the scent or I'll use more product. I felt like I put a lot already but this is why testing is so important!
Rating: Smells very similar to the vanilla bean noel scent from bath and body works! I could definitely see this one being popular for winter

Rating: Love this scent my best seller .Customers keep asking for more. Love all your essential & fragrance oils. The scent throw is amazing in the soy wax.

Rating: I make lotion bars with this scent and to me it smells literally like Tim Hortons French vanilla. The best part is that in lotions the smell stays and lingers for a very long time which I love.
Rating: I mixed coconut cream with vanilla cream to make a coconut candle (1/3 vanilla, 2/3 coconut), and it does smell more vanilla-y than I wanted, so fair warning the vanilla scent is stronger, would buy it again however, smells very rich and sugary.
Rating: Made CP soap cupcakes with this scent. It smells wonderful in the bottle but the scent changed a little in my CP soap. Im planning to try another batch where i add more of the vanilla cream fragrance or i will mix with coffee or coconut. The scent isn't horrible by any means. The cupcakes still smell like a sweet vanilla. To me it has a fake plasticy scent that wasn't there before i made the cp soap. Hoping in a week once the lye is completely out they will smell less "fake" and take on a more natural vanilla scent.

Rating: Smells great and strong but havent been able to get my candles to throw scent well when burning wick of the candles. Ive been mixing it with C3 at 185 degrees but isnt binding properly yet. I will try hotter temperature to mix the oil and wax.
Rating: Love the smell! Used it in soy candles and it caused the wax to discolour, wet spots and the wicks seemed to struggle staying alight. Pity because it smells great.

Rating: Smells delicious!!!! a big seller in CP soap.
Mes clients prennent souvent mes savons un par un pour les sentir et parmi tous les savons colorés aux couleurs de l'Arc-en-ciel, ils omettent souvent de sentir le "savon brun à la vanille".... La plupart du temps, ce sont leurs enfants qui prennent le temps de le sentir et de dire " maman Maman, essaie celui là, il sent le caramel/gâteau/sucré/dessert....j'veux celui-là!!!!!"
Rating: I love this scent it's amazing .. I dunno it's like a butterscotch, vanilla .. a delicious scent .. used it to mix with other FO that I didn't like at all .. didn't want to waste them , and this did the trick .. my cp soap turned out great
Rating: I love the scent of this fragrance oil---it smells like toffee and every time I smell it I want to eat it. I've mixed it with organic lavender angustifolia and ultra fine dead sea salt to make a body scrub and it is great.
Rating: What a wonderful scent, I have only gotten praises for this scent, not over powering at all, such a smooth, warm scent. I love it for lip balms, candles and hand soap , I am a vanilla lover and always bake with organic vanilla extract, I love how soft and natural this scent is, thank you!

Rating: I was hoping for a creamy vanilla, but of the bottle, this smelled like a lovely, strong vanilla caramel to me. Not quite what I expected, but I loved it. In M&P soap, though, I found the scent disappeared quite a bit, even at 3%. I tried another batch with this mixed with the regular Vanilla FO, and that was a bit better/stronger. I will happily use this in many blends, but it won't be my stand alone vanilla.
By:A., Dawson Creek, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Jul-2013
Rating: Love the scent! Made CP cupcakes with Devils chocolate for the base with vanilla cream icing. I wanted the icing as white as possible so added TD. It worked beautifully with no acceleration or ricing. unfortunately, I wanted a white icing, but am now watching it turn brown. So disappointed. Even checked for vanilla content but the charts said there was 0%. Not exactly what I wanted but the scent is absolutely perfect!

Rating: Smells like butterscotch. I mixed it with vanilla and it is an absolute fave for my customers who love food inspired scents.

Rating: À chaque fois que j'ouvre ma bouteille, ça donne faim! Je trouve que ça sent le gâteau à la vanille. Très sucré et crémeux, je l'aime beaucoup, mais ce n'est pas la plus représentative de la vraie vanille.

Rating: I absolutely love this scent it's been very popular with my bath bomb buyers
By:Sabrina, Cornwall, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 18-Feb-2016
Rating: This is my new favorite for aromatherapy and to scent my liquid castille base. Blends nicely with orange sweet eo.
Rating: This is a nice scent! Very sweet and warm and as mentioned before not quite a true vanilla... a little bit butterscotchy. I really like it any time of year in my reed diffusers. Will continue to purchase :)
Rating: What a previous reviewer said is correct. It makes for a VERY good butterscotch. As luck would have it, I have been looking for a good caramel scent and this will do perfectly.
By:Nzingha, London, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 01-Jan-2015
Rating: This smells more like butterscotch to me. I love vanilla and really wanted to love this, but I just don't. It would be nice mixed with something as its VERY sweet smelling.
By:Louise, Hamilton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 17-May-2015
Rating: Smell is quite strong out of bottle but I could hardly smell it in my CP soap. I used it at 1oz /pound oils. I did add some TD and it is a nice carmelly colour. Piped top with unscented off white and it turned out beautifully - no acceleration or trace - just wish the smell was stronger in the finished soap.....I like fairly strong scent in my finished products.
By:Robin, Grimsby, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-Feb-2015
Rating: Sweet vanilla very nice great addition to my lotions
By:Danielle, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Jan-2013
Rating: WOW this scent is amazing. Sweet and creamy and the vanilla smells so good. It kind of smells like Tim Hortons French Vanilla Lattes my son drinks at times. Either way it smells sooooooooo yummy. It's a fave in my house in my bath and body products. You can't go wrong with this scent and I'd purchase it while you can !!!
By:Coriene, Tillsonburg, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 31-Jan-2013
Rating: Love this fragrance! Works well in CP soap no acceleration or ricing. I read that it turns brown so I used a CP stabilizer to keep it white. I blended this with butter cream icing FO for a birthday cake soap :)
By:Victoria, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 13-May-2013
Rating: I use this in CP soap and leave it as is - with minimal design as it does discolour. However, this is ALWAYS a best seller and I consistently sell out of it when I make it. I'm a big vanilla fan, but found it sweet OOB. MUCH better once in the actual soap when used at 1TBS PPO.
By:Ayla, Sherwood Park, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Aug-2013
Rating: Smells like vanilla cream to be. Waiting for NDA to carry vanilla color stabilizer so that I can start using this scent. The prices and shipping just doesn't compare to NDA so I am really hoping I can find VCS here soon.
By:Merlinda, Scarborough, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Sep-2014
Rating: I believe this is my all time fave scent now. It smells like a gooey toffee chocolatey vanilla dessert!
By:Heather, Abbotsford, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Mar-2008
Rating: very very very sweet but than again vanilla is sweet. You'll laugh but during my summer outdoors fairs last year... you could see a long trail of ants all rushing to go to my vanilla soap.. not even interested in the rest of the lot..
By:Celena, Lasalle, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 28-Nov-2012
Rating: This has to be one my personal favorites. Make soap with this and my kids want to know what i'm baking. Will be buying this again.
By:Janit, Souris, Manitoba Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-May-2013
Rating: This is officially one of my favorite FO's! I mix this with strawberry FO and it just smells divine! Just like berries and cream!
By:Charlene, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Feb-2012
Rating: My favorite vanilla so far! Did not experience any acceleration in CP but it does discolour to a deep brown. I love it with some ground vanilla bean pods in there as well!!
By:Melissa, Pugwash, Nova Scotia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Apr-2007
Rating: I use this in my CP soaps at .5 ppo and have not noticed any acceleration of trace. Like other have stated, this scent does turn my soap a nice rich brown colour; however, I find it suits it perfectly. The scent is very appealing; so rich and warm. I just can't stop smelling it. And the fact it's phthalate free is a great bonus. Will definitely buy more. NDA: Please stock more phthalate free fragrances.
Rating: I love this vanilla! I mix it with coconut in my CP soap and I can't keep it on the shelf. It is really popular!
By:Vicki, Leslieville, Alberta

Rating: Reminds me of a caramel! Yummy, but definitely NOT your typical vanilla...think of the smell of vanilla or syrup as it's caramelizing.
By:Stephanie, Burlington, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Apr-2010
Rating: I really love this scent a lot! Very delicious smelling and everyone who has smelled it in my soap has loved it as well!
By:Stephanie, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Aug-2010
Rating: This is VERY popular as a soap. I made hot process and the fragrance didn't affect anything in any way. Such a rich creamy warm scent, you could eat it!
By:Kelli, Burton, New Brunswick Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 30-Sep-2012
Rating: It's a great scent at an unbeatable price. I will repurchase this.
