When I was in my late teens, my brother would buy me this for my birthday. I always knew exactly what my gift was going to be, but that was fine with me, because I love this scent. It is a soft vanilla, more of a floral vanilla than a foody vanilla. It has decent staying power, and it's reasonably priced. This is also a perfume that I can wear without having a raging headache by the end of the day.
