I think ATOH is very similar to Caron Pour Un Homme, but PUH is really harsh to my nose, and has an ammonia smell to it. ATOH is much more wearable, for me, anyway.
I agree with Habit Rouge and Shalimar. Both have citrus and vanilla, which MdM has too. In HR, I'd recommend the EDC. Shalimar is very different in each concentration. I personally like the leathery notes of the extrait and EDP, but if you don't like civet, I'm not sure you'll like Shalimar. It contains pretty much all the animalics--civet, castoreum, musk.
Also Guerlain's Eau de Cologne du Coq might be good--it is a light citrus and lavender, but not long lasting.
For MdM, you just have to tolerate the civet opening.
For lavender/vanilla, try Histoires de Parfum's Casanova 1725. Very long-lasting.http://www.beautycafe.com/1725_Casanova.html

I agree that Etiquette Bleue is a nice hesperidic scent, one of D'Orsay's original scents, but no vanilla. Arome Trois is a nice lavender fougere, but no prounounced vanilla. (The "origins" of this scent being made by the Comte d'Orsay for his "English" mistress are sheer marketing spin. See "Perfume Presentations" by Ken Leach, and "Perfume Handbook," by Nigel Groom.)
In this respect, the Guerlains are unique. The only other recommendation I have is Caron's Pour Un Homme, with its lavender/vanilla.
