We’ve found a gem of a new fragrance in The 7 Virtues Vanilla Woods Gemstone Perfume Oil. It’s warm and heady blend has become a fast favourite in our ever-rotating roster of eaus and we find ourselves gravitating towards it both day and night, even when we’re the only ones reaping the rewards.
Loaded with fresh, feel-good vibes, Vanilla Woods opens with mouth-watering pear that sparks the senses, before a bouquet of heady roses add their sensual and romantic impression to the equation. Later, a blend of organic Madagascar vanilla, gooey caramel and warm amber rise forward, wafting off our skin while putting a little swagger in our step. The overall effect is so intoxicating, inviting and empowering, we can’t seem to put the bottle down.
Like all of the Canadian brand’s scents, this natural beauty doesn’t simply smell amazing, it also tells a story. Its gemstone roller is made from rose quartz—the crystal renowned for unconditional love—and said to have been designed to create calmness, while the actual elixir’s addition of vanilla oil provides aromatherapy benefits of relaxation. Plus, it overflows with natural, organic and fair trade essential oils that support families in nations that are rebuilding their communities after war or crisis and is absent of parabens, phthalates and sulfates. It’s cruelty-free and vegan as well. You can see why we think that we’ve found a gem.
