You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.

    I am not crazy about sweetness, or vanilla in fragrances. I like to sniff vanilla, but can not wear it. Amber either. I know. I know, it smells great, but I just can't do it. The vanillas that keep luring me back in use it as an ingredient and not the center of attention - like:

    Joseph Statkus
    Habit Rouge
    Mouchoir de Monsieur
    Fat Electrician

    Don't know if its the best, but the most attractive I've smelled so far is Rose Water & Vanilla by Jo Malone.

    I recently got my hands on a bottle of Jaipur. It really is a wonderful vanilla fragrance. The dry down is magnificent.

    I can't do vanilla either unless it does not take center stage.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Did someone say vanilla?

    As god is my witness, I'm obsessed with the stuff. Obsessed with it. I love it in so many forms:

    Designer? Try bulgari black or L by Lolita Lempicka

    Bit more niche? Try Diptyque Eau Duelle

    With tobacco? Try Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille

    Smoky? Try Mona di Orio Vanille or CB I hate perfume 7 billion hearts

    Supersweet? Profumum Roma Dulcis in fundo or Acqua e zucchero

    Incense? Le Labo 44

    Hint of citrus in opening? Farmacia SS Annunziata Vanigla del Madagascar

    Powdery? Annick Goutal Vanilla Exquise

    Boozy? Guerlain SDV or M Micallef Note Vanillee (sadly discontinued)

    More citrus you say? Bois 1920 Sushi Imperiale

    Vanilla? What vanilla? Try Hermessence Vanilla Galante

    Foody and delicious? Try Guerlain Gourmand Coquin










    Excuse me while I now go sniff my bottles.
