    Thanks! Ordered a sample of Givenchy Pi since that's the one that's being named most.

    +1 on Eau Duelle & SDV.

    I'll add Vanille 44, Shalimar & Black Jeans.

    + 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.

    Not spicy per say, but Tobacco Vanille may be worth looking into.

    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!!

    + 1 to Eau Duelle, also Byredo 7 Veils (clove and vanilla)
    NEW SPLIT - Tom Ford Lavender Palm 50ml in Atomizer - DISCONTINUED!. .

    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

    Spicy vanillas: PdN Vanille-Tonka and Organza Indecence. I don't find Spiriteuse DV or Eau Duelle spicy at all.

    also think YSL opium is also a good choice.

    SDV has been mentioned, but thats just pure vanilla to me.

    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
