I got a bottle of straight Vanilla FO because my hub loves vanilla smells. What's your favorite thing to blend it with?

Vanilla and orange (heavy on the orange) is really nice, smells like a creamsicle! Vanilla and lavender is good, too.

Vanilla is such a good base note; I'm trying to think of something it won't go with. I frequently use it as my "fixer" to even out scents I don't like - super sweet, very heavy florals like jasmine; things that are too fruity.

All of the above and in addition I like it with lemon verbena. I love vanilla (but not the buttery, bakery vanilla) and I believe it really goes with everything.

I blend it with clove and cinnamon. I use the clove fo from WSP so I can go a little higher in percentage in the blend then if I use the eo, but I'll mix in a little cinnamon eo too for a nice blend.

I mix BB's Vanilla Select with their Espresso FO and call it "Vanilla Macchiato"
