    How does Les Nombres d'Or Vanille stack up against Spirituesse Double Vanille? Smelled the latter at Neimans today and fell in love with it.

    Ms. Shades has it right. Fine stuff.

    First runner up: Guerlain Spiritueuse Double Vanille.

    Honorable mention, if I just won the lottery: Creed Sublime Vanille.

    The price is fantastic for SL compared to SDV, gonna have to stop by Barneys soon and try some on.

    Personally I enjoy Molinard's Vanille and Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille!

    Tobacco Vanille by Tom Ford is pretty much the standard for a great vanilla fragrance but IMO Serge Luten's Un Bois de Vanille has it beat, even if it is labeled 'feminine'

    Molinard smells cheap to me. TV is the choice if you want tobacco with the vanilla; Un Bois Vanille is really great, too; and Spiriteuse Double Vanille is the vanilla bomb when I want pure unadulterated vanilla. But due to the price I save SDV for special occasions.
    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
