A warm but bright vanilla core accompanied by a sidekick of jasmine and lavender, but the latter are clearly accompaniment - the vanilla rules. Similarly, in the drydown a slightly sweet mildly honeyed spiciness appears that is never more than a supportive orchestra to the vanilla soloist. The ingredients are classic indeed.

The sillage is soft, the projection adequate and the longevity two hours - but bearing in mind that I only use the After Shave that is not too bad. And given the affordability too.

A simple, classic, straightforward down-to-earth delightful vanilla in a no-nonsense plastic flācon de luxe supreme that characteristic for Pinaud Clubman. My positive score is evidently not based on a sexy and seductive luxuriating crystal packaging. 3/5.

I love this every bit as much as the original Clubman. Lighter than the original, and without the deep moss chord of that fragrance. It's fresh and has a great honey topnote that lasts for a bit and then promptly sits down--just like a good aftershave should. And, as always with the Clubman line, you can spoil yourself for less than $10 bucks.

By the way: the term "Vanilla" refers to the color not to the scent.

The Clubman Vanilla is very, very similar to "Chanel Pour Monsieur" which costs ten times more than the Clubman.

Classic Vanilla sounds like it should be a fluffy, sweet blancmange of a thing. But, it's not at all. It's a classic, bright fougere on the opening, with a touch of vanilla sweetness in the heart of it. Very fresh, very clean, very pleasant, a nicely light everyday fragrance for summer. Not as persistent or assertive as Clubman, so feel free to apply liberally.

Nice, old school barber shop classic with a subtle vanilla undertone. Consistently provokes complements.

Haters of vanilla should have no fear of Pinaud's Classic Vanilla. This is not a sludgy sweet gourmand fragrance at all. This is a classic barbershop fougere with some vanilla added to the coumarin in the base, that's all. The vanilla is restrained and well done in this scent, and it does not interfere with the overall talcum powdery barbershop smell that all Pinauds have. Imagine what the original Clubman would smell like if it were sweeter, and you have Classic Vanilla.

If like Pinaud fragrances, then Classic Vanilla is definitely worth adding to your arsenal.

MY RATING: 7.5/10
