Thread: Dark vanilla

  1. #1

    Default Dark vanilla

    I'm looking for a scent that smells of vanilla/tonka but in a dark and black kind of way. Sweet, warm, extremely dark. Do you have any suggestions? No leather/incense/oud please.


    Thanks in advance.

    If you're looking specifically for Vanilla, then Tobacco Vanille, may be abit too....tobacco-y :P

    Still definitely worth a try!

    I want to say Chergui, just because I love it so damn much, however it probably isn't quite what you're looking for.

    I would venture to try SDV. This is a vanilla heavy scent.

    I would not know which constitutes "dark."

    Dior Homme Intense is co-dominated by a dark syrupy vanilla note along with the cocoa powder. The vanilla in this fragrance has a dark brown texture, not black.

    It's a bitter coco fragrance; however, on my skin, it smells like a dark vanilla/chocolate swirl lol

    My favorite fragrance with vanilla is Tobacco Vanille. The tobacco makes the vanilla dirty, which I love. Much better than a straight up boozy/vanilla fragrance such as SDV.
    Current top 10 (No order):


    1. Pure Havane
    2. Menthe Fraiche
    3. Tobacco Vanille
    4. L'Air Du Desert Marocain
    5. Green Irish Tweed
    6. Fahrenheit
    7. Musc Ravageur
    8. Tonka Imperial
    9. Gucci Pour Homme II
    10. Dior Homme Intense

    I was going to suggest the same two fragrances.

    I do not enjoy super sweet candy vanilla scents and those two mentioned are excellent. I prefer and own Tobacco Vanille but, it clearly has more tobacco. Sample and decide for yourself

    For a cheaper option, check out Armand Basi PH. The scent, just like the bottle, is very 'white and black.' Mostly vanilla/tonka, some light spices and florals, and dark guaiac wood.

    Iris Pallida 50ml

    Ungaro I 75ml

    and more!

    Vanilla may not be the main player but Noir de Noir came to mind.
