I received a sample of Lavanila Laboratories’ Vanilla Grapefruit fragrance from Sephora. I love receiving fragrance samples because it lasts me a long time and I don’t have to buy any perfumes. Good news for me, not so good news for fragrance companies.
“Traditional Fragrances are loaded with phthalates, harsh chemicals, chemically-laden alcohol and petrochemicals that can cause dryness, damage and irritation.
The Healthy Fragrance is made with all-natural & organic ingredients and completely free of harsh chemicals. We infuse organic sugar cane alcohol with exotic essential oils & skin soothing botanicals for an authentic and skin safe expression of nature. 100% Healthy.”
“An Uplifting Citrus. This invigorating blend of sparkling grapefruit, crisp cedarwood, lime and Madagascar vanilla is created by master natural perfumers who use only the finest pure essential oils. Kissed by sunshine, this unique scent lifts the spirits.”
The vanilla scent is a lot stronger than the citrus notes. The first spritz and you will immediately notice the vanilla. Take a couple more whiffs then the grapefruit will come through slightly.
My expectation was the vanilla and grapefruit scents would be equally strong and was a little disappointed that the vanilla came across a little stronger than expected. Nevertheless, it is a pleasant and, I must say, delicious scent. Even better, it is all natural and organic which is a huge plus.
The fragrance lasts a few hours and is completely gone by the end of the day. You might yield a slightly different result if you spray some on your skin. I have a habit of spraying perfume on my clothes.
