    Macys has it and it is surpisingly good and longevity is great for me.

    A tad of A*Men mixed with some Bulgari Black is how I see it. Very cozy and easy to like IMO.

    Notes:
    Top notes: Bergamot and mandarin orange.
    Middle notes: Amyris wood, pink pepper, and coffee wood accord.
    Base notes: Labdanum, tonka bean, vetyver, and patchouli.

    Montale Bois Vanille

    I don't care for it, because it isn't enough Vanilla and too much wood, but hey it fits what you're looking for to a tee.

    You can also try Bois Vanille by Serge Lutens -- it's the opposite of Montale -- more vanilla and softer woods.

    True, but the addition of coconut makes it a little more feminine IMO. That's no reason to not sample it though.

    You should sample Parfumerie Generale Cadjmere and Felanilla. Especially the Felanilla. Delicious.

    Cedar and vanilla in the base of Adidas Victory League. There is also a grass note that is prominent for a while, before the base takes over (and some other notes that are not as strong).

    Somebody correct me if I'm off base here but I think L'Occitane Eau de Baux has vanilla in the base. The top is smoky/woody (I think -- only tested it in passing).

    No problem there. I firmly believe a guy can pull it off, I know I do. It's truly unisex IMO.

    Seconded. And it is quite wearable by men who like vanilla. Coconut doesn't really compromise it for men IMHO, in the sense that it doesn't make Creed's Virgin Island Water unwearable by men.

    You are correct. Along with tonka bean. "Wooded" with cypress. A beautiful scent, IMO.

    Santal Noble. Le Male if you want something more mainstream. Pi Neo is another option.

    Agreed about what has been said about Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille. It's a very enjoyable, rich coconut vanilla turning to caramel-y vanilla; but I do wish that the woods would kick in a bit more prominently.

    L'Eau des Baux, mentioned before, is wonderful and quite original. Highly recommended!

    thanks - will give that a try. I picked up on your recommendation of Ambre 114 & that is really good ish. Will see if lightnin strikes twice.

    Just saw this at Luckyscent - Vanille Sauvage de Madagascar by La Maison de la Vanille. It's well reviewed and I like the name. Would love to try this as well.

    L'Occitane Baux is a nice, simple and dry vanilla scent. It's cheap, and it stays on the skin so damn long :P Not as amazing as Montale Bois Vanille, but it's ok if you wanna buy one

    Definitely a +1 for Parfumerie Generale - Felanilla for a great balance of vanilla & woods!

    Now for the 1st round of eliminations :

    Montale Bois Vanille vs SL Un Bois Vanille

    Montale = plenty of wood but little if any vanilla + the iris

    SL = plenty of vanilla but very little sandalwood or gaiac on the drydown.

    This round goes to Un Bois Vanille. It may be easier to spike with a wood tone.

    M. Micallef, Note Vanillee is very nice. Opens a bit boozy but the sandalwood and vanilla are the stars.
