    Question Recommend a vanilla scent

    Warm, spicy, vanilla, ambery (maybe), musky.... I love vanilla and musk (I loved Coty Wild Musk when my mom wore it) and berries. Something elegant that would go for special events, not everyday wear.

    Any ideas?

    $0-150 (zero just for reference lol).

    I'm curious about Coty Vanilla Musk, but cheaper scents especially tend to irritate me. It's cheap enough if I see it I might give it a try though.

    Mitzah - Dior - warmth from spiciness
    Patxhouli 24 - Le Labo - warmth from resins

    Both have a strong vanilla presence.

    for swap/sale:

    Warm, spicy vanilla = Dior Addict.

    Berries & musk; l haven't tried it, but L'Artisan's Mure et Musc is blackberries combined with musk.

    Trish McEvoy 9 or Sexy No. 9 (I prefer the latter for its scent and strength). Its "subtitle" name is Blackberry & Vanilla, Musk. Enjoy your hunt.

    Please do yourself a favor and order that coffret from La Maison de la Vanille -- they do nothing but! -- and then
    invest into the full bottle of the fragrance you will have liked best.

    M.Micallef does some pretty classy vanillas.

    On a budget, explore Laurence Dumont and Henri Berdoues lines.

    It means "co-incidence", some of us foreigners read what's written not how it is supposed to be read by the rules. LOL

    Fragonard's Fleur de Vanilla.

    Gotta say it's not spicy but it's vanilla, flowers & musk. The vanilla is really rich & so so gorgeous.
    It's been a long hot Summer in Sydney, looking forward to Winter & wearing vanilla fragrances.

    Those all sound awesome! I picked up some Coty Vanilla Musk (it's a cheapy and I am a fan of Coty if only for nostalgia reasons) and it's a lovely scent, but seemed to make me nauseous. Also not exactly what I'm looking for. Still smells really good though!
