Ellis Brooklyn Vanilla Milk was launched in 2022, created by Meabh McCurtin. Notes of milk, peony, frangipani, jasmine, Bourbon vanilla, Madagascar vanilla, cacao, benzoin, amyris, sandalwood and musk. It is an eau de parfum, edp. All Ellis Brooklyn perfumes are vegan and PETA-certified cruelty-free.
From the brand - "Delicious yet sophisticated, faceted yet smooth, VANILLA MILK is a fragrance of paradoxes. VANILLA MILK eau de parfum uses two types of vanilla extracts, a touch of florals, delectable cocoa shell, rich amyris, and a creamy milk accord. Ellis Brooklyn’s Bee Shapiro and female Irish perfumer Meabh McCurtin, two outsiders to the perfume world, came together to create a vanilla fragrance from a fresh perspective—one that is uniquely addictive."
Reviews of Ellis Brooklyn Vanilla Milk
Fragrantica - "Oh my god!! This is liquified vanilla bean ice cream."
Fragrantica - "to me it’s a warm vanilla backed with a smokiness (probably the amber). It also has a caramel like smell too."
Fragrantica - "I have been thinking about getting Indult Tihota for a while now. Then I found Vanilla Milk. Tihota is very linear; it has only two notes---vanilla and musk, and that's how it smells the whole time. The top notes of Vanilla Milk smell sort of like Tihota, but not exactly. Unlike Tihota, Vanilla Milk evolves over several hours, and it never smells exactly the same throughout. That's where I think Vanilla Milk is superior. It's not boring. Yeah, the first sniff is weird and off-putting to some people. But I'm fine with it, and I appreciate a complex fragrance. I'm not going to get Tihota anymore. Vanilla Milk will probably be part of my regular rotation from now on."
Fragrantica - "I’ve been so burned by “milk” fragrances in the past that I went into this with unbelievably low expectations, and ended up loving it this much because of that. Milk centred fragrances smell like hell to me, no exceptions, I think it’s that there’s usually a strong wood in there like teak or mahogany? And I can’t stand that, it makes it so sharp and disgusting to me that it’s like off condensed milk. But this? To me it’s like a fluffy vanilla milkshake, but becomes wearable through the less horrific woody notes that I think are balanced out by the benzoin and musk. I see why some people would hate it, but I hate more popular milk scents, so this might be a nice alternative for those like me who have searched for a milk note they like but just haven’t found."
