I am a super, duper, ridiculously cold person - in terms of temperature, not emotion! - and this often leaves me spraying myself in perfume only to find it has disappeared from my existence an hour later. Because of this, I have found myself turning to both oil-based and solid perfumes.
Lush's Vanillary was one of my first of this kind of purchase - housed in a little black tube, perfect for literally dropping into your handbag. This vanilla scent is, just like its name, more vanilla-y that pure vanilla.
The addition of tonka and jasmine deepen the fragrance, making it both subtle and spicy, with just a slight touch of the oriental. It is just absolutely lovely.
