    Default Best vanilla: Jaipur Homme, Givenchy Pi, or Acqua di Parma Mandorlo di Sicilia?

    Which is your favorite out of the three I listed (and yes I know you have another vanilla you like better lol).

    Jaipur Homme for me. Love how powdery it wears on me.

    Pi, by a wide margin. Stylin is right; Jaipur Homme is very powdery, and I don't much like powdery scents. Mandorlo di Sicilia isn't bad, but it smells just like vanilla soft serve ice cream, and that's not something I want to smell like most days (and, of course, let me get in a plug for Guerlain Double Vanille, the best (and most expensive) vanilla scent I've ever worn).
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Mandorlo is the sexiest out of the 3 you named. Will get you the most complements. Pi is too popular, that everyone will know what you're wearing.

    Jaipur Homme from those three. Also give a try to Eau Duelle by Diptypque.

    I've never smelled the Acqua di Parma fragrance mentioned, but I own both Jaipur Homme EDP and Pi... and in my opinion Jaipur walks all over Pi, by a long shot.

    As much as i love Jaipur, Pi is a better Vanilla frag.

    Givenchy Pi. There' s a nice wood-vanilla-leather base in it.

    Jaipur PH
    Also try Maurice Roucel's TL Pour Lui by Lapidus, this is a truly hidden gem.

    The note in Pi that you smell as vanilla is most likely benzoin, but yes, Pi has the best effect of the three. I also like Creed's Sublime Vanille and Guerlain's Spiriteuse Double Vanille.
