I just recently ordered a sample of SDV from Guerlain and Un Bois Vanille from Serge Lutens and I am looking for a creamy vanilla fragrance.
Can I get at least three suggestions from you guys?
Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree
Guerlains Tonka Imperiale
Havana Vanille/Vanille Absolument, L' Artisan
There is a MOntale called Vanilla something...
I love Un Bois Vanille for the price. If money is no object purchase Guerlain SDV. Tonka Imperiale is definitely worth a sniff as well.
+1 for Vanille de Molinard.
"No elegance is possible without it...perfume is a part of you." Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel
Gaultier 2 - tons of vanilla, lots of amber and some musk
Tobacco Vanille is my favorite vanilla.
To add to the great list above, Cuir Beluga. Not really a vanilla based frag but smells like tiramisu. =)
Bond No. 9 Andy Warhol Success is a Job in New York.
+1 Cuir Beluga ( Silk & Leather )
Felanilla ( cream - banana )
LArtisan Vanilia (smooth floral ylang-ylang )
Comptoir Sud Pacifique ( gourmand vanilas )
Tom Ford Tobacco Vanila ( Honey - beeswax )
La Mansion de La vanille Vanille Noire du Mexique ( Dark Vanile - Chocolate )
Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree

PS, Egoiste, Opium pour Homme, Jaipur Homme.
Guerlain Spiritueuse Double Vanille is my go-to vanilla treat. It is so, so fine. I am about to spring for Tonka Imperiale. And even Creed Sublime Vanille is calling my name. Guess I'm on a vanilla binge, eh?
Another couple where the vanilla used is perhaps not so "too much of a good thing":
Shalimar Ode a la Vanille (Guerlain)
Vanille Galante (Hermes)
A vanilla centered fragrance that is actually good--that's a tough one. I'd recommend Caron pour un Homme though you must like lavender or perhaps something a little drier like Patou's discontinued Ma Liberte.
Just sampled Spiriteuse Double Vanille and there was nothing other than vanilla extract on my skin. This has been the best recreation of vanilla on my skin but nothing else! I gotta say I am disappointed.
D&G The One is a nice little vanilla based scent that's widely available and not too pricey. Tobacco Vanilla is a perfect fragrance, but I wouldn't necessarily classify it as a vanilla scent or recommend it for someone looking for vanilla -- it's more off on its own.
Not mentionet yet:
Eau des Baux
Also, my very favorites, with this above:
Tobacco Vanille <3
SDV - Guerlain
Un Bois Vanille - Serge Lutens
Tobacco Vanille - Tom Ford
Havana Vanille - L'Artisan
Vanille Absolutment - L'Artisan
Eau Duelle - Diptyque
Tonka Imperiale - Guerlain
Musc Ravageur (DRY DOWN) - Frederic Malle
Pi - Givenchy
AND OF COURSE Le Male - Jean Paul Gaultier (HATE IT)
Havana vanille is good! Also I like PI and vanilla by Santa maria novella
Current Top 5:
Tabac, Cardinal, Brookes Brothers, Musc Kublai Khan, Andron
I'd agree that you could do a lot worse than Caron Pour Un Homme.
