If you do not have very much money to spend on nice perfume, buy a bottle of nice vanilla essence, intended to be used in the kitchen, and dab a little onto your pulse points. Vanilla is an attractant and nobody will notice that it is not actually perfume. This is tried and tested, I always used vanilla on dates and well, for my sins I have Other Half, don't I!

Oh rainbow, I am nutty enough without the almond oil, I shall stick to vanilla. Glad you have tried it too, shows I am not the only one. I still do dab a little vanilla on, and it still works lol.

Vanilla smell always makes me feel happy and more sort of bouncey, lol. Strange as I prefer strawberry ice-cream. I may look more into vanilla oil and get back to you if i have a minute.

Well, vanilla oil is OK for rooms, but the ordinary vanilla essence you put a drop of into cooking is what I use and I get away with it lol. I don't know why it makes people feel good, but it worked for me and got me Other Half. Unfortunately Father (in Law) came too,sigh.

tsk, tsk, ye of little faith, gabs. It truly does work and I got Other Half hooked by using the stuff! As to poor old Gissi, I think they prefer eau de l'oiseau mort, don't they?

My mother just happened to be telling me she could remember her grandmother using vanilla as perfume when she was little. I guess back in those days there probably was alot of people who may have used this trick.

Yes, along with all floral and spice scents vanilla has been well known as a perfumery ingredient. It just happens to be more widely accessible due to its popularity as a cookery ingredient, and I must say that it has really helped me from time to time. Strange thing is that I am an absolute fragrance addict and do save up for a couple of small bottles of good fragrance a year, but I still revert to my good old bottle of vanilla essence!

I have never heard of doing this but since I love the smell of vanilla, I may have to try this. I bet it wouldn't attract the bees like most perfume does either as it is a more natural scent. I had heard of using almond extract, but I don't care for the smell of it.

No, it doesn't attract bees to my experience, and I have been doing this for a long while. I do have some nice perfumes too, but sometimes less is more :-)

Oh yes I learned the trick of vanilla a few years back when sister in law gave me a gift basket and it had some vanilla scented lotion in it. Hubby wouldn't leave me alone lolol

I know exactly what you mean. I don't think anything smells better than natural vanilla scent. I used to buy the vanilla body oil from the Body Shop and I was constantly complimented, but they stopped making it from pure vanilla and I started using 100% vanilla bean oil. It smells almost identical and its half the price!
