    Default Suggestions for a Vanilla fragrance with Cinnamon?

    I'd like a fragrance in which the dominant note is vanilla, and it has a nice amount of cinnamon or some other type of spice. I'm looking for something that is rich, creamy, with just a dash of spice. Nothing too sweet or gourmand though, and preferably something with good longevity and sillage. Suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Hello, welcome to basenotes. I realize that you are a woman, so you can take this advice for what it's worth to you. First of all, I would expect most feminine frags with a dominant vanilla note to be quite sweet and maybe even floral in nature. When I think cinnamon and vanilla, I usually consider Carlos Santana for Men. Maybe you aren't comfortable wearing a masculine frag, but I do believe it is wearable on a woman, and maybe close to what you are looking for. Another to consider is Boss Bottled for men by Hugo Boss.

    Starring for Men by Avon.

    Have you tried: Youth Dew, Cinnabar or Opium? Lots of cinnamon there.
    Another lovely spicy and vanillic one is Kenzo Jungle L'Elephant but it is harder to find. Although cinnamon is not listed I remember Benetroessere Raving by Etro as having lots of it, but I could be wrong.

    These two are spot on.

    'L' by Lolita Lempicka is a truly beautiful blend of Vanilla, Orange, salt and Cinnamon. Plus, Maurice Roucel, who made Musc Ravageur mentioned above did 'L' too and 'L' is way cheaper. And even then always seems to be on sale - I keep fearing it's going out of business!

    Truthfully, I actually far prefer L to MR anyway but I know I'm in the minority .

    I'll have to check L out. The original Lolita Lempicka was a little too sweet for me but L might work...the orange note with the vanilla and cinnamon sounds interestingly pretty.

    Ahh yes, if only I could afford anything from the Hermessences line, and from Frederic Malle as well. Those are good suggestions though!

    You might like Amorito by The Body Shop, however it has a very prominent Chocolate note.

    Otherwise, the Ambre Narguilé by Hermés is your next best bet.
    SEEKING BOTTLES OF:

    Aramis New West (preferably old bottle)
    Patrick by Fragrances of Ireland
    Azzaro Aqua
    Gloria by Cacharel

    PM me if you have bottles that you're willing to sell or trade!
