    Dawn Spencer Hurwitz Au Lait is nice, sweet, and clean. It's heralded in various online fragrance community as THE milk scent, and I do get notes of condensed milk and vanilla; on me, this is more of a vanilla fragrance than a caramel one, and it's not much like steamed milk at all. While I find this fragrance pleasant enough, the musk note is apparent right from the beginning (I usually expect musks in the drydown), and it just throws off the comforting, foody scent of the perfume. There's something about it that makes my nose and throat feel "uneasy," even though it doesn't make me sneeze. When I was a kid, I stupidly decided to rub Johnson & Johnson baby wash on my tongue to see what getting my mouth washed out with soap would be like (I used to read about it happening to characters in books, and I was an impressionable and weird kid), and something about that note almost puts the taste of a light, clean baby soap back on my tongue. I know I'm the odd one out here, but while I could fall asleep with this on after hours of wear, there's no way I could sleep with this freshly applied before bed. It's just too perfumey and not foody enough. The sillage of this fragrance is not huge, but the scent does last for hours on me when applied in and near the baby hairs at the sides of my neck.

    I'm so happy that you loved Vanilla Chantilly and that it's the scent you've been searching for. :) It's new (launched in 2016), which is why Au Lait might seem to be more popular. Au Lait was launched back in 2004. Anyway, I'm just delighted that you love it. <3

    This is unusual and delicious. I can't stop smelling myself!

    Absolutely delicious. Feminine, soft, sophisticated. It opens with lush, pure violet and unfolds into a creamy, dreamy scent that is not so much a note-by-note trek, but rather a decadent journey that's a little of this, a little of that. Projection is modest and I wish the scent lasted longer. Still, the overall effect is quietly powerful and posh; ladylike luxury.

    I've liked other vanilla perfumes, but this one is something special. It is sweet without being too sweet and subtle on---just enough scent. I found the rollerball scent to have more staying power than the voile. I wish more of the scents had this option. Highly recommend!

    I am 63 years old, and I have finally found "The One." When I smell Mars Violet, not only do I smell the fruit-chouli, but I also get umami. Umami one of the five basic tastes-sweet, salt, sour, bitter. Never liking Patchouli as it reminds me of Hippies, but, then I have never smelled quality Patchouli. This is a scent I am unable to separate the ingredients-and I don't care. I love Mars Violet.

    This became such a favourite in my house I had to buy another; my son uses it all the time. One of my all time favourites.

    This is my new go to layering scent; I often use it with Piment et Chocolat, and even Sweet Dreams. It just works for me. I wasn't crazy about this when I first opened the package, but after a week it just smelled fabulous. I don't know if it oxidised a tiny bit upon use, but it's another one of Dawn's magical potions that just smells so sultry and alluring that I find myself reaching for it first. It's one of those that have me putting my wrist to my nose...a lot.

    I absolutely love Piment et Chocolat! I wanted a new scent 5 years ago and it has become my favorite. I love the spicy and sweet combination and will keep coming back for more!

    I love gourmand scents and I love this gem even more. I have it in perfume oil, that goes very well with me and lasts all day. You do get a modest (but not shouting) sillage with it. Except for vanilla I seem to pick up a marsipan-like smell (but that might just be my perception as I do not see that listed as notes). However: it is a winner and a keeper!

    Such a challenge to review this fragrance! But I really, really wanted to share my thoughts on Mars Violet. It is SO unique, and I feel truly is The One for a certain type of woman. What type? I imagine that this would be Margo Channing's perfume. Is there a scene in "All About Eve" where she's siting at a vanity? Mars Violet should be on that tabletop. It has a strong vintage, old fashioned, this-is-what-a-lady-smells-like vibe. Also, in terms of longevity, it's a beast. Still here after 8 hours. Is it for me? No. Mars Violet is classic glamour, and unapologetic, beautiful and quite bold. The fruit-chouli was too powerful for my taste, and I felt like I was under-dressed for its feminine yet buttoned-up presence. For someone else, though, this is destined to be a signature scent.

    I really love this scent. One that makes you happy again when you are sad. It gives comfort and peace.

    If you like gourmand scents, you should try this one. Very sweet, but never synthetic like most gourmand, which I really like about Dawn's fragrances.

    Wonderful vanilla. I detect a woodsy undertone (that is good), I guess it is the sandelwood. It makes the vanilla a bit deeper, or more grown-up.
