Laura Mercier is known for their natural and authentically beautiful makeup, and so it’s no surprise that the Laura Mercier fragrances also have a natural theme. Personally, I find the collection quite calming and cosy, especially the three sweet ones. In this article I describe what each of the Laura Mercier fragrances smell like and discuss their unique qualities.

In the UK I recommend getting the Laura Mercier fragrances from LOOKFANTASTIC where you can get them with 21% off using code LFTFSOKI. In the US and Canada they can be found on the Laura Mercier website and Nordstrom.

Laura Mercier Vanille


Laura Mercier’s Vanille fragrance is a classic vanilla scent which reminds me of rich vanilla ice cream. A creamy sandalwood base note combines with the vanilla to make it rich and sweet. This is definitely a fragrance for fans of sweet vanilla and it could easily be layered with other fragrances to add that vanilla touch.

Laura Mercier Ambre Vanille


Ambre Vanille is my personal favourite fragrance from Laura Mercier. The name indicates a deep amber and vanilla scent but actually the main note I get is a feminine orchid note. There isn’t actually an amber note in the fragrance mixx though there is coconut. A brown sugar note combines with the coconut and orchid to add a light sweetness which I think is really pretty.

This is a great every day scent which lasts a few hours; ideal for wearing during the day time any time of the year.

Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Eau de Parfum

Laura Mercier Almond Coconut


Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Eau de Parfum is the warmest scent in the range. For me, the main note is the almond rather than the coconut; it creates a very warm, nutty undertone which reminds me of Zadig & Voltaire For Her due to a sandalwood base note.

Usually coconut fragrance have a tropical vibe (like my Aphrodite perfume) but I find Laura Mercier Almond Coconut to be more of a warm, winter fragrance because it has a really cosy feeling.

Laura Mercier Néroli du Sud


In my view, Laura Mercier Néroli du Sud Eau de Parfum is quite different to the other three fragrances in the range. This is a fresh, aromatic scent which reminds me of being at a spa. Neroli is the scent of blossom from citrus trees and creates a really fresh and green opening note. In addition, a calming lavender comes through which provides the aromatic undertones. I think Laura Mercier Néroli du Sud is a great perfume to wear in the morning, its uplifting and would set you up with positivity for the day ahead.
