The 7 Virtues mantra: "MAKE PERFUME NOT WAR is our mantra at The 7 Virtues, and it is molded into our caps as a reminder. The perfumes are made with natural, organic and fair trade essential oils supporting families in nations rebuilding after war or strife. We believe transparency is key, so visible through the perfume itself, you can read where the fragrance oils were sourced from and the aromatherapy healing benefits of each. All formulations are Leaping-Bunny certified, cruelty-free, and vegan." The 7 Virtues sources fair trade vanilla from a sustainable cooperative that provides families with fair wages.
Basenotes - "An incredibly long-wearing real vanilla scent. It smells like vanilla pudding, with a hint of roses and musk."
Fragrantica - "Let me start off by saying I am a vanilla lover. I was on a hunt for a nonspicy, non-boozy/syrupy vanilla. This fragrance is everything I've ever dreamed of! The perfect woody vanilla with no hint of spice whatsoever. The light pear note in the opening brightens it up a little. Like another reviewer, this is what I hoped La Belle to be. Highly recommended!"
Fragrantica - "This perfume reminds me of a thicker and better version of Zara’s Rich, Warm, Addictive. Vanilla Woods is a smoky, incensey, and woody vanilla and caramel blend with a rich amber base. I almost detect a very quiet honey note somewhere in there. I don’t smell any pear or rose notes. It smells delicious, sweet, smooth and comforting. This will be a staple gourmand fragrance for me to wear in the autumn."
