Don’t get me wrong, florals and musks have their place — even in some of my go-to vanilla fragrances — but there’s something about the sweet warmth of a creamy vanilla note that keeps me captivated year-round. I’m not talking about the ultra-gourmand body sprays of yesteryear (no shade, I’m still a fan of those, too), but sophisticated, grown-up takes on classic vanilla bean-based spritzes.
