    This was my pick for a while, but I'm looking for something better. What's your pick?

    For a simple, creamy vanilla dry down, and a very good price to go with that, I would recommend L'Occitane's Eau de Baux.

    I second especially Jaipur.

    Very unisex, in spite that it may be marketed for a non-male customer base: Vanille Noir by Yves Rocher, actually, a very dark and leathery vanilla.

    The TV I'm wearing right now is very heavy on the vanilla, so I'd go with that.

    (Comme Des Garcons - although I'm not sure if it even has vanilla in it but I get the impression strong in the drydown and I love it, although it's hardly a vanilla fragrance...)

    Caron offers two choises: Pour un homme (which is nice) and Le Troisieme Homme (which is great). Great value for a small price.

    Jaipur EDP is a Vanilla BOMB, no other masculine vanilla fragrance stands up IMO.

    A lot of interesting recommendations here... Some modern, some old school, others just plain weird lol

    As a 27 year old who likes modern compositions that push the envelope but smell great, I'd go with either Spiritueuse Double Vanille, Patchouli 24 or Eau Duelle.
