This was my pick for a while, but I'm looking for something better. What's your pick?
Opium PH EDP is a very nice vanilla frag.
Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille
Mona di Orio Vanille
Canadians: I would like to trade for a decant of The 3rd Man by Caron. PM me.
La Maison de Vanille Absolu de Vanille.... $100
Mona di Orio Nombres de Vanille..... $175
Also try L'Occitane Eau des Baux I just purchased this stuff Sat and wearing it today and it is amazing the dry down is a great balmy vanilla....$50.
Mona di Orio Vanilla
Diptyque Eau Duelle
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.
+1 Eau des Baux by L'Occitane (affordable, but quality frag -- my current favorite)

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.
Tea (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...)
Guerlain - Jicky.
Caron offers two choises: Pour un homme (which is nice) and Le Troisieme Homme (which is great). Great value for a small price.
Tobacco Vanille is the one that does vanilla the best imo.

Top notes of... sweat, gasoline, motor oil; a heart of deer musk and gunpowder, resting on a base of sex and testosterone... Mandom.
Jaipur EDP is a Vanilla BOMB, no other masculine vanilla fragrance stands up IMO.
no doubt, hands down

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.
