Vanilla is a scent that I’ve been drawn to ever since I was a little girl.
There’s something comforting about it, and I love how it can blend with so many other scents to create a creamier version.
And when it’s paired with tart fruit scents, it softens the sharpness to make it cuddly and pleasant.
For a while, I’ve been wanting to try the Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar Fragrance Mist. A co-worker was sweet enough to surprise me with this about a year ago.

Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar Fragrance Mist Review
The Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar Fragrance Mist is what I would describe as the fragrance equivalent of a warm, cozy blanket that Linus would want to tote around all day.
It has an earthier kind of vanilla scent than I typically wear. (Whenever I sport vanilla, it’s usually more candy-esque and sugary sweet.) Warm Vanilla Sugar, however, smells purer.
Bath & Body Works claims that it smells like basmati rice water, but since I’m not sure exactly what that smells like, I can’t verify that claim.
As for the sandalwood, it’s definitely there – I think this is what gives the overall fragrance a more natural smell that’s warm.
I appreciated how the scent wasn’t really strong and that it’s what can be called a ‘cuddler fragrance’ – i.e. it doesn’t smack people in the face when you walk into the room. You get a whiff of it when you lean in closer to the person wearing it.
The Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar Fragrance Mist lasts quite a long time on me, especially considering that it’s just a fragrance mist and not an eau de parfum.
I was able to smell it at its peak on me for about 4 hours. Then it started to fade, but I was still able to smell it at the 6-hour mark. That really surprised me!
You’ll notice that this is the old packaging. Now Bath & Body Works has their new Fine Fragrance Mist bottles that are supposed to deliver a ‘delicate fragrance experience’.
Final Verdict: 7.5/10
If you’re a fan of vanilla fragrances, you may like the Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar Fragrance Mist.
I liked it, but it’s not my favourite only because I tend to go for really sweet scents like Britney Spears Fantasy. (Warm Vanilla Sugar is closer to a pure vanilla.)
Have you tried the new Fine Fragrance Mists from Bath & Body Works? Are they really any different than the old bottles?
