    Many, many greats. Here's a few of my favourites:

    Guerlain's Jicky & Cuir Beluga
    Parfumerie Generale's Felanilla 21 & Aomassai 10
    Le Labo's Vanille 44
    Martine Micallef's Vanille Aoud
    L'Artisan Parfumeur's Havana Vanille
    Profumum's Acqua e Zucchero
    Frederic Malle's Musc Ravageur
    Diptyque's Eau Duelle
    L'Occitane's Eau des Baux
    Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille


    However, Guerlain's Spiritueuse Double Vanille is my favourite take on vanilla.

    There is no 'best'. It depends on how you like your vanilla. With resins and spices? Go with Shalimar. Or straight up? SDV or Eau Duelle. Creamy slightly toasted? Maybe try Un Bois Vanille. With a little skank perhaps? Try Jicky.

    Double Vanille is for women though, right? Does it smell feminine?

    I'm not sure if anyone else has smelled, but Vanillary by Lush was real good. That smelled very nice and smooth.

    Anyone else tried it?

    Vanillary is nice. Dark smokey vanilla. I don't find DV feminine, but I also don't find vanilla a note that only women should enjoy wearing.

    Vanilia by l artisan, discontinued, its so delicate sandalwood-yilang ylang- vanilla frag, took me 6 months to start enjoying this fantastic take on vanilla,

    Suppose shalimar vintage too, this new one is empty cold, hay like, nothing like creme brule

    Spiritueuse Double Vanille by Guerlain.

    Easily Boucheron Jaipur and it's not close.

    Default Re: What is the best vanilla fragrance?

    For pure vanilla? Spiriteuse Double Vanille. End of story.

    If you want a different take, Eau Deuelle is interesting. But not pure vanilla.
    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

    even though it's not all about the vanilla & there are more pure "vanilla" frags out there, Tobacco Vanille is probably my favorite. I just love the "darker" vanilla, as I'm generally drawn to more "masculine" frags in the first place and TV finds a way to still remain very masculine while incorporating a good amount of vanilla IMO.
