After much debating between the three fragrances in the display (I'll show you pic of the display at the end of this post), Vanille Sa Pomme d'Amour came home with me. Let's take a look!
Boum Vanille Sa Pomme d'Amour Eau de Parfum
(retail: $9.99 at Walgreens, 3.3 oz)
I adore this vintage Parisian carnival artwork...
"...you are spinning in the middle of sweet notes of praline and apple to finish on a mild touch of vanilla...A moment where all emotions get mixed...And you want more, always more..."
Boum Vanille Sa Pomme d'Amour by Jeanne Arthes is a Floral Fruity fragrance for women. This is a new fragrance. Boum Vanille Sa Pomme d'Amour was launched in 2012. Top note is orange; middle notes are red apple and praline; base notes are musk and vanilla.
Orange, red apple, praline, musk and vanilla. If you're a gourmand fan, what is there not to love about this fragrance? And indeed, I do love this. I get a strong burst of crisp red apple during the opening of this fragrance (I really don't detect any orange) and within a minute or two, I get some nice vanilla smoothness. Nothing smells painfully artificial about this fragrance to me (yay!).
It takes a few minutes for the praline to come through, but once it does, it really shines here, making this an even more scrumptious fragrance. In short, this is a youthful, playful dessert-type fragrance that, for me personally, never becomes cloying or headache-inducing. The vanilla (which smells more like vanilla bean to me) keeps it smooth and prevents it from being one of those one-note apple fragrances such as the old Body Fantasies Apple Fantasy fragrance. It really doesn't remind me of any other apple fragrances that I've owned over the years--it's not similar in any way to Bath & Body Works Country Apple, Bath & Body Works Winter Candy Apple, etc.
Both projection and staying-power are moderate for me. This isn't a big, bold fragrance and you'll probably need several spritzes if you want it to last longer than an hour or two (but hey, at $9.99 a bottle, it's not a crime to be heavy-handed with this one).
FINAL VERDICT: If you're a gourmand lover who gravitates toward apple fragrances, this one's for you. The combination of crisp, red apple, smooth vanilla and sweet praline make this a fragrance that's downright irresistible to me. It would probably be best suited for fall/winter, but that's not going to stop me from rocking this one year-around. And how cute is this packaging? That's definitely an added bonus!
PS: As I mentioned at the top of this post, here's what the display at Walgreens looks like:
