la nuit might be worth trying
Are there any that exist? I've been looking for one.
la nuit might be worth trying
Pi by Givenchy
Vanille Orientale perhaps.
Joop! Pour homme, Givenchy Pi, Boss Bottled, Chanel Allure
Thanks! Ordered a sample of Givenchy Pi since that's the one that's being named most.
Guerlain Spiritueuse Double Vanille IS spicy vanilla... you can close the thread now.
My current top ten:
1. Spice and Wood
2. Tonka Imperiale
3. Dior Homme
4. Pure Malt
5. Oud Wood
6. Ambre Nuit
7. L'air Du Desert Marocain
8. Noir de Noir
9. Apple Brandy
10.Straight to Heaven
Eau des Baux by L'Occitane
The perfect edt with a spicy vanilla smell is the classic YVES SAINT LAURENT OPIUM POUR HOMME.No doubt the best!!!
Jacques Fath pour Homme
+ SDV, hella expensive though.
Jaipur pH for heliotrope/nutmeg/vanilla is very good as well.
Simplex Sigillum Veri
2 decent ones you can get for a song are Passion for Men by Elizabeth Taylor, and Mesmerise from Avon. CK Obsession, and possibly Stetson ain't bad either.
Creed Royal Oud isn't a vanilla fragrance, but I do get a very nice sweet and spicy aroma from it that I enjoy quite a bit.
My favorite spicy vanilla is Diptyque's Eau Duelle - IMO, spicier than Guerlain SDV, which I alo love.
ETA: just noticed that hedonist222 had also suggested this and I wholeheartedly agree!!
Arpege pour Homme by Lanvin
+ 1 to Eau Duelle, also Byredo 7 Veils (clove and vanilla)
Tom Ford Splits!!!! - Tobacco Vanille, Tuscan Leather, Oud Wood, Noir de Noir - PATCHOULI ABSOLU
Plum Japonais, Italian Cypress, Neroli Portofino, Costa Azzura, Azure Lime, Champacca Absolute
HARD TO FIND - Lavender Palm, Arabian Wood, and AMBER ABSOLUTE, etc...
Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads
Very rich full of vanilla is Jean Paul Gaultier_Gautier2
Spicy vanillas: PdN Vanille-Tonka and Organza Indecence. I don't find Spiriteuse DV or Eau Duelle spicy at all.
Pi is too plain, if you want straight vanilla / baked goods vibe it might work for you. Jaipur Homme is a very good recommendation. Some like Opium PH, though I find it cheap smelling (in the edt at least). Can't comment on the more expensive suggestions. Vanilla just isn't worth that much to me.
+1 Boucheron - Jaipur Homme.
Jean Paul Gaultier - Le Male Terrible.
I'm surprised nobody as mentioned Caron Pour Un Homme. To my nose, it's a spicy vanilla/lavender. The only thing I dislike is the musk in it, which is quite dominant.
I forget Gucci - Envy For Men
The guy already bought Pi 23 minutes after asking the question.
My top 5: Sea Mist; Minnow; Crab, tiger, and almonds; Semprini; Rancid Polecat N° 2
