Lush Vanillary Solid Perfume Review

A while ago, I bought solid perfume from Lush in one of my favorite scents, Vanillary.
I was on the Lush website and was surprised to see that the solid perfume had undergone a makeover. The product I purchased looked like this:

I admit, the packaging isn't very appealing and is difficult to use. Once you get past the top layer you will find yourself scraping your fingers against the tin to apply it to your skin. It gets quite annoying and sometimes messy.
But the new packaging looks like this:

MUCH better. Not only is this tube far more uniform but it is like lipstick in that you twist the bottom of the tube to bring more product to the surface.
The scent was wonderful. It smells of warm vanilla but it will remind you of cakes at bakeries and toffee with a hint of jasmine. It is a perfect fall/winter scent.
Sadly, it doesn't last very long. If I use this perfume in the morning I will find myself looking through my bag before noon to reapply it.
I would buy this product again, thanks to the new packaging!
Final thoughts:
Likes: scent, packaging.
Dislikes: not long lasting.
Rating: 7/10

If you are interested in purchasing Vanillary Solid Perfume, it is available at Lush for $9.95
