Vanille 44 is not one of his blockbuster heavy hitters of the Le Labo Line (we are looking at you Rose 31 and Santal 33) . It’s won’t knock your senses around and batter, bruise and bring you to your knees. Neither will it take you on numerous paths and detours. This is instead, a vanilla that speaks to an understated sexiness that wraps and enfolds in its cashmere-like softness. The vanilla is light, transparent and pays homage to the pod rather than the sugary, sticky treats that too frequently tempt me in the French patisseries. This is a more pared back take on vanilla and is one of those scents that vanilla phobes will be able to inhale, and enjoy, but it’s also one for those of us who prefer more heavily textured scents. This is a gentle respite, a harbour from the storm.
