I read somewhere that Un Bois Vanille by Lutens was inspired by some sort of Mexican beverage...I recently sampled it, bought it, and am anxiously awaiting it's arrival!!! It may satisfy your current craving, as it is not spicy or ambery...it is what it claims to be: wood and vanilla! Comes off very comforting, rich and warm. Certainly worth a try IMO. I also follow your commentaries, and have tried many new 'winning' fragrances because of your opinions. Maybe this is my chance to repay you for leading me toward so many lovely scents! I hope you'll give Un Bois Vanille a try. Good luck!
