    Default would like to find a new sweet perfume

    I love sweet scents, I'm a sucker for vanilla. I just not CRAZY about any of the ones that I have right now. I'm on the constant search for the perfect scent and I have yet to find it. I would appreciate any suggestions because I just don't know where to look. Perfumes that I have or had and really like are:
    Bond No 9 New Haarlem
    L'Artisan Safran Troublant
    Angel Men
    Cashmere Mist (but wish it was a bit sweeter, warmer)
    Burberry Brit
    Jessica Simpson Fancy (please don't judge me)
    Agent Provocateur (I like all of their scents but Strip is my favorite)


    I hate anything too floral and I'm not a big fan of the "clean" smelling scents. I always like them in the bottle but on my skin it's usually just headache inducing.

    So what do you guys think?

    Have you tried Angelique Noire by Guerlain? Another sweet one I love is Orchidee Blanche by L'Artisan, but I have no idea where to find it in any amount.

    *Hanae Mori HM for men. This is very, very sweet lemon and vanilla. So sweet that it creates a chocolaty accord especially in the EDP. I love sweet and have a heavy trigger finger. I always get in trouble with this and get overwhelmed after a heavy application : ) just can't not do it! I have my bottle up for sale in the Market Place for that reason.
    *Dior Eau Noire Cologne (not vanilla but mostly heliothrope and immortelle super sweet)
    *Lolita Lempicka au Masculin. Addictive sweet praline combined with anise and bitter green notes.
    *Jaipur PH. Vanilla but more heliothrope. Delicious spiciness. I love Anick Menerdo's work. Same nose as LLaM.
    *Opium PH both concentrations. A masterpiece. Scary beautiful. Dark, mysterious, French.
    *Zenzero by I Profumi de Firenze. Super sweet caramely ginger and vanilla. Expect cavaties.

    Thank you all for the suggestions, now I just have to hunt them all down and do some testing.
    easyfish - I know that most scents tend to be sweet these days, but I find so many of them to smell the same. I love sweet, but I'm tired of smelling the same "fruity sweet" stuff that seems to be everywhere...don't get me wrong I like a few of them, but after a while they just all blend together and nothing stands out anymore.

    My first thoughts are:

    Parfumerie Generale Cadjmere
    Parfumerie Generale Aomassai

    They're very different from each other and from New Haarlem, but I classify them all in the same sweet-pastry category. New Haarlem's most obvious note is coffee, Cadjmere's is coconut milk, and I don't know what Aomassai's is.

    Also, if you haven't tried them:

    L'Artisan Parfumeur Tea for Two (spicy-cookie sweet)
    Serge Lutens Chergui (spicy-tobacco sweet)
    Diptyque Philosykos (sticky-fig sweet)
    Bvlgari Black (Rubber tires soaked in vanilla syrup and tea leaves. Yum. But possibly not quite as sweet as you want.)

    Hi jules! Welcome! I love Strip, too.

    On the vanilla front: Hypnotic Poison, Rochas Tocade, Datura Noir
    On the must-have-a-high-tolerance-for-licorice front: Lolita Lempicka original
    Similar in sweetness to Strip and a perfectly delicious amber: EL Amber Ylang-Ylang
    Amber amidst cinnamon rolls and raisin bread: Ambre Narguile

    Hi there Jules!

    I'd recommend you two fragrances from YSL:

    1. Body Kouros
    2. Nu (Eau de parfum)

    I don't know if you'll like Nu, but for sure you'll find Body Kouros a very special scent

    All the best!

    Sweet vanilla? I'm surprised Le Male has not been mentioned here at all.

    Hi Jules!

    Vanillas (vanilla-centric) - Not the cheapest, but so worth owning, IMO:

    Guerlain Spiritueuse Double Vanille
    M. Micallef Vanille Aoud
    L'Artisan Vanilia
    Parfumerie Generale Felanilla
    Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille

    I really enjoy my vanillas and sadly, I can't seem to find less pricey ones that can really satisfy.
