As you complete the spell, your senses dull somewhat. Upon releasing the spell’s energy on your desired subject, your senses clear, although the spell’s recipient can no longer be perceived.
This powerful illusion functions like vanish, except that it masks image, scent, and sound-alike preventing speech and the casting of spells with somatic components (though the subject remains able to detect scents and can hear as normal), concealing the subject from all senses except touch. As with greater vanish, this spell doesn’t end if the subject attacks. While invisible, the subject exudes no scent and is undetectable by scent, blindsense, tremorsense, and blindsight.
Superior vanish renders the recipient immune to detection by see invisibility, although creatures under the effect of the spell can be detected by true seeing. Certain mundane conditions (such as leaving footprints) can also render a subject detectable.
