Diesel Plus Plus Feminine

Diesel Plus Plus Feminine is one of my favorite vanilla-based scents. It's available at many discount stores and it's usually affordable at less than $20 a bottle. I haven't smelled the Masculine version but the word on the net is that the M/F versions are very similar. This fragrance is a nice mix of light florals with a smooth, milky vanillic base, with some sandalwood and jasmine to give it a creamy-powdery finish. The top notes are fresh, and although fruit notes are listed, I get more green than sweet fruits. It's a great, sheer Gourmand if you like it light and sweet. It's a mild, easy-going and comforting everyday perfume, as easy to wear as a pair of jeans. I like the cool opaque milk glass bottle (glass with plastic cap) and the silver milk carton-themed box, too.
