    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.

    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.

    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.
    My current favorites:

    Bleu De Chanel, Creed Green Irish Tweed, Zino Davidoff, Dior Homme Intense, Creed Royal Oud, M7 (all versions), Chanel Egoiste, Dior Homme Sport, and Thierry Mugler Pure Malt.

    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.
