What’s In My Cart—Target Edition

With everything that’s going on right now, I’m trying not to shop. However, with me being home so much more, the online shopping temptation is so real! One thing that I like to do is to add things to my cart and then close the window. I know that this may seem pointless, but it helps me because I actually enjoy the act of shopping for the best item/best price. This way, I get my fix without spending my money!

Check out what is currently in my cart at one of my favorite places, Target!

Fragrance Friday #12 | Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille

I’m back with another Fragrance Friday! I took last week off because I had friends in town, but this week we are back on track! Today’s Fragrance Friday features a niche perfume from the house of Serge Lutens, Un Bois Vanille.

I purchased Un Bois Vanille a couple of months ago when I was on the hunt for the “perfect vanilla”. Vanilla is one of my favorite notes in perfume because it is soothing and comforting. It typically provides warmth to many fragrances. Although this is definitely a vanilla fragrance, it has lots of notes to it! The top notes are almond, coconut, honey, and licorice. The middle notes are benzoin, vanilla, and guaiac wood. The base notes are musk, sandalwood, and tonka bean.

To my nose, this smells like a sweet vanilla that is balanced out by woody notes. I absolutely love the sweetness of the vanilla, but because of the woody notes, it is not overly sweet. I feel very comforted when I get a whiff of this fragrance! This vanilla based fragrance has some depth and complexity to it that makes it stand out.

On me, this fragrance lasts at least 7-8 hours. It is not one that I have received many compliments on, but when I wear it, I catch little whiffs of it all day long. It honestly makes me feel really cozy.

Overall, I am really happy with Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille and it has sparked my interest in some other fragrances from the house. I would recommend this if you are looking for a classic vanilla that is not so basic. I also think that it is a good stepping stone into the world of niche fragrances (due to it’s price point and wearability)!

Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille retails for $150 for 1.7 ounces (but you can probably find it at a discounted fragrance website, like here).
