It *clearly says* "poisonous" and "death" on the bottle: and this is from the best sources.....
    Wow.. I'm speechless. This, I did not know. It's kinda scary now after reading your post.. haha.
    But why is cinnamon even allowed in fragrances then? It's obvious that it's life threatening, so why put it in fragrances? And for all I know, cinnamon can be done synthetically, so I shouldn't worry about that right? Has there been any deaths due to application of cinnamon fragrances? Is it dangerous to actually eat anything with cinnamon in it?

    I bet not many people knows this..

    I do a customized version of the Blood Type Diet (Dr. Peter D'Adamo) and cinnamon is an *avoid* for me. I think cinnamon in very mild doses might be ok for many people. But I'm not so sure now...one time my husband had a terrible rash and swollen lips, etc. and had to go get an antihistimine shot. The only cause I could track it to was a cinnamon stick in his hot cider, and I thought, "well, that' can't be it". But I had not had one in mine, and we'd both ingested the same things except for the cinnamon. Before I did blood type diet, I used to use cinnamon in baking and cooking, and I never had a reaction. So I don't know...maybe it is a cumulative thing for some people, and maybe others are ok with it, but in moderate or very small amounts. A LOT of cinnamon would be harmful to anybody. It will irritate your skin, the straight essential oil. But individuals are unique with unique reactions to various substances. If cinnamon doesn't seem to bother you then perhaps it is ok for you. Just use caution, as with anything.

    I've never had such an experience with cinnamon like your husband had. I've eaten cinnamon almost everyday for the past 2 years. I use it in bakery, in cooking, and I use fragrances with huge amounts of cinnamon in it.

    I hope everything worked out for your husband by the way!

    There are lot of vanila ( alone ) and cin. ( alone ) but together hm... only clear choice would be MR ( my personal signature almoste 4 years now ) , but this is no cookie... or it is one animalistic cookie , and vanila is not clear smooth vanila ( like dry in tobacco vanille ) , this vanille is pure natural vanilla , raw and strong, temptating and dearing... Go for this one ( or just use Vanila from Jil Sander Absolute, and cin. from Diesel Ziro M. ) ... Good Luck.

    That's because it isn't poisonous.

    Why would you believe this just because you read it in some perfume forum online?



    Cinnamon can be harmful if you consume an insane amount of it, which, unless you are insane, you would never ever do.

    L de Lolita Lempicka by Mourice Roucel? It has elements from Musc Ravageur and has some kind of "salty cookie" accord.

    He's fine, thank you! And he has had cinnamon subsequently with no ill effects. But just wanted to make the point (in my rambling boring way) that cinnamon is not for everybody, and as a concentrated extract or essential oil - it can burn the skin. Who knows what it would do internally. Anyway, I hope you find the yummy fragrance you're looking for!

    I honestly don't think Musc Ravegeur is a good suggestion, for the first part of it it smells nothing like what he's describing.

    I've been eating cinnamon sticks (yes, the bark before it's ground into powder) my whole life. Dirty little secret. Not dead yet.

    Was also going to say that if you can find the MR oil, I've heard that it doesn't have the top notes that people object to. It goes straight to the drydown.

    Musc Ravageur Oil, Tonka Imperiale (more ameretto cookie in vanilla but so good...), Comme des Garcons White, although this one is probably not sweet enough but great for milky cinnamon.

    Well, since you wear a TON of cinnamon fragrances, could you suggest me a kilo of them?

    Yes, and the musk is not noticeable at all--just a cinnamon cookie dipped in vanilla like the topic starter is looking for.

    Do you guys think it smells feminine? I know that cinnamon cookies dipped in vanilla doesn't sound very masculin, but is it hard for a man to wear it? To give you a perspective, I own and wear Tonka Imperiale that is classified as a feminine scent. I do wear it and it's not hard for men to wear. How is this compared to TI in terms of wearability?

    This was going to be my recommendation as well. I love Diesel Zero Plus. I get a spicy cinnamon powder note up top that dries down to a musky/milky vanilla/tonka type scent that retains a bit of the cinnamon & spices. It's like a modern, sweeter, young version of Old Spice. Very comforting in cold weather & worth way more than it sells for.

    I really don't like Old Spice at all, and fragrances with musk is a no no for me!

    I hear you with the musk issue but I can tell you its pretty hard to smell the musk note. If you PM me your mail adress I can send you a sample, if you're interested.

    You could try out Creeds Original Santal. I get a good amount of cinnamon from it. You might miss out on the pure vanilla though, but it's definitely worth a try.

    Besides Diesel Zero Plus, my other favorite cinnamon dominant fragrance is Serge Luten's Rousse. It's an incredible cinnamon scent, but it doesn't have the vanilla/cookie element though. Instead, Rousse opens with a Red Hots candy type cinnamon note (also similar to Fire flavored Jolly Ranchers or cinnamon scented brooms, potpourri, etc. that you find during the Holiday season. ) From there, it holds that candy type cinnamon note into an amber base note.

    Some don't like the candy/potpourri associations & think it smells like a walking holiday candle, but personally, if u like a pure dominant cinnamon, I think this one is great.

    What you're looking for is EAU DES BAUX by L'Occitane! Cinnamon and vanilla with incense, it's just heavenly and long lasting not synthetic smelling at all and not only that it's priced quite cheap for the quality

    forget musc rav - it's foul!!!!

    i think you should try Hermes Ambre Narguile. Not exactly vanilla, but warm, cinnamon with vanillic notes. It's also very long lasting. Personally i think it's the closest thing out there to match your request.

    How about L'Erbolario Meharees - Musc Ravageur without the musk or clove - that leaves vanilla and cinamon!!!

    Oh @wampa already said that - +1 then!

    Yeah I know that the musk in Old Spice is very faint, I've already smell it and hate it, so I don't really need a sample, but thanks anyway!

    I have Ambre Narguile and it's my all time fav scent! It's too pricey for me hence the search for a cheaper similar one.

    The incense is really strong on me which I hate, but smells great on other people tho, thanks!
