Scent of the Moment: pureDKNY Vanilla

"To be Pure is to be ourselves.  This soft floral scent features a drop of vanilla in water as its signature. Accords of lotus flower and Bulgarian rose harmonize with jasmine, freesia, and lush orchid.  It finishes with warm amber and creamy sandalwood." - www.dkny.com

The title is an obvious giveaway.  I've been wearing pureDKNY almost everyday for a month now.  I received this gift from Aramis and Designer Fragrances (ADF) early August and I must say, I was hooked from my first spritz of pureDNKY Vanilla. As soon as I got a whiff, I knew this is my kind of fragrance.  I have a short list of fragrances I use alternately.  Depending on my mood, I switch from a few light, fresh citrus-scented brands to more elegantly-scented fragrances.  

I don't have what you call a signature scent.   My mood mainly dictates what I wear, be it clothes, to shoes, to fragrances.  And I've long been using vanilla-scented body sprays and lotions, so if you're like me, you will also love this pureDNKY Vanilla.

DKNY actually created this Pure fragrance line for a cause, which is very admirable and noteworthy:  "It's more than just a scent, it is a state of mind, a way of being.  Each drop of vanilla is sourced by vanilla bean farmers in Uganda to try and help support local communities and fight global poverty."

I also learned that the whole packaging of this product is made with recyclable materials, from the paper box to the light aluminum cap.

What I like about this fragrance:
As quoted up top, pureDKNY features a drop of vanilla, creating a mood that can evoke...
  • Sweetness 
  • Warmth
  • Comfort
  • Calm
  • Simplicity
  • Elegance
It's actually just a hint of sweet vanilla, not even as strong as my Bath & BodyWorks Warm Vanilla Sugar body spray.

Much like the first photo I took above, with the thick and cozy pink sweater, just a couple of sprays are enough to make me feel good and fuzzy all over every time I wear it.  PureDKNY Vanilla is simply a feel-good scent that can take you from day to night.  A quick spray at my nape does it for me.
SRP @ PhP 3,500 - 1.7oz. / 50ml

With the rainy-cool weather we're having lately, the delightfully warm scent is just the perfect fragrance to wear.  It makes a wonderful gift idea too, especially with the coming holidays.

PureDKNY Vanilla is my scent of the moment.  What's yours?
