Most Popular Vanilla Scents For Women - Top Perfume List 2011
Do you love the scent of vanilla? If so you're not alone in fact this popular fragrance is and has been one of the most popular fragrances and flavorings since the time of Columbus. Up until that point in time this flavoring which is native to Mexico was completely unknown in the Old World.
Vanilla is one of those fragrances that many people love because its not strong and over-powering but is instead warm and subtle fragrance that most people even those with allergies won't find offensive. I've had allergies for several years now and this is is one of the few fragrances that I can still tolerate.
Another thing that I've noticed about this popular scent is that a lot of men seem to prefer it. Maybe it's because it reminds them of food, if so that old saying that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach might just have some merit after all.
Some of the most popular perfumes that you will find on the market rang from the bakery type scents that remind you of fresh baked cookies and ice cream like Warm Vanilla Sugar and Vanilla Lace to the delicious berry scented Bath and Body Works perfumes like Black Raspberry Vanilla and Blackberry Vanilla and the many floral scents. So you should be able to find something here that appeals to most everyone whether you prefer the bakery or the more floral type scents.
A Little About The Flavoring
The dictionary describes the extract and flavoring as something that is plain or ordinary when in actuality this couldn't be further from the truth.
Because there is nothing ordinary about the seductive flavor and scent of pure creamy vanilla.
Did you know that the bean from this tropical climbing orchid was once thought to be an aphrodisiac and was so rare that it was reserved for royalty only? That's not bad for something described as plain and ordinary is it?
The pure extract which in my opinion is the only type even worth using is still fairly expensive. This is because of the labor intensive methods that have to used in order to process the bean which then has to cure over a three-six month period.
Make Your Own Extract
Would you like to make your own vanilla extract? All it takes is some vanilla beans and vodka. Just place a the bean which has been split in a jar along with 3/4 cup of vodka. Then seal the jar and in six months you'll have your own homemade extract.
