    Default What is the strongest Vanilla scented mens cologne?

    I've recently found a Vanilla scented toilet air freshener that I love the scent of! I like the scent of this more than the majority of colognes I own! lol...

    What mens colognes are there with a dominant Vanilla fragrance with good projection and silage? Something similar to Dior Hypnotic Poison

    Eau des Baux will meet your requirements handily. But you could always try annointing yourself with that toilet air freshener just for the fun..unless a rash breaks out

    Spiritueuse double vanille is boozy and extremely strong - but unpleasantly so. But many people love it.

    The standard for me remains Caron pour un homme, or, more in general, old auntie Shalimar, still great and still wearable by men.

    Also, don't be afraid to wear Hypnotic Poison, which you mentioned. It can easily be a unisex fragrance and it's one of my personal favorites. I prefer it over Le Male or just about any other masculine vanilla I've tried.

    Pi is actually benzoin, but smells like vanilla to a strong degree and is widely available. Check it and see if it meets your needs.

    I thought Tobacco Vanille is unisex. A cigar stubbed out in the melted scoop of vanilla ice cream that fell out of the cone. Pretty strong admittedly.

    Whats PI short for?

    Ive wanted to try Tobacco Vanille for ages now but cant find samples anywhere here. Also twice as much as I like to spend on fragrances

    Guerlain SDV has the best projection and sillage of any vanilla I've tried. Good God, even when I just use two or three sprays, my mom makes a face the second I walk into a room (she doesn't care for vanilla).

    Anything more than three sprays at most and you're going to be a dense vanilla cloud for hours and hours.

    I'm currently wearing Eau Duelle, which projects and lasts very nicely as well. Put it on eight to ten hours ago, and it's still clearly here.
    Current Top Ten:

    1. Creed Millesime Imperial
    2. Serge Lutens Chergui
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Creed Virgin Island Water
    5. Chanel Eau de Cologne
    6. Thierry Mugler Pure Havane
    7. Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme
    8. Bulgari Blu
    9. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    10. YSL Kouros

    For Pi, he's talking about Givenchy's Pi. It's ok, and is sweet, but to me, doesn't really smell like vanilla. It smells more ambery to me and kind of dated. (more like a sweet scent from the past, before the current, more realistic gourmand trend). It kind of reminds me of some sort of candy I had as a kid. It also kind of reminds me of those chewable children's orange aspirin pills for some reason). Anyway, it's worth a try, but it's not really a true, edible vanilla type scent.

    Guerlain SDV is a vanilla beast, but may not quite fit what you mean by "mens"

    Tobacco Vanille is a little more masculine than SDV, and also a beast, as is Eau Des Baux.
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Brückner - Aoud 1
    4. Armani Privé - Oud Royal
    5. by Kilian - Incense Oud
    6. Dior - Vetiver
    7. Les Nez - Turtle Vetiver Back
    8. Neela Vermeire - Trayee
    9. Amouage - Jubilation XXV
    10. Creed - Royal English Leather

    It's on the Australian L'Occitane website if that helps.

    Other good vanillas: Mona di Orio (but expensive), Tom Ford Noir, Musc Ravageur.

    I agree with many of the aforementioned scents, especially Caron pour un Homme and Pi. Though very different amongst each other, they both have one feature in common: extremely good strength and longevity, at least to my nose and on my skin.

    I cannot believe that no-one has mentioned the almighty Jaïpur Homme de Boucheron.
    In the EdP concentration, you'll find one of the most beautiful and strong male vanillas.

    Another vote for Tobacco Vanille. Though Eau des Baux would fulfill your needs at a much lower price point (IMHO it's a beautiful scent for winter and very reasonably priced)

    You're right. That one slipped past me. The crazy thing is I just purchased a bottle a few weeks ago.

    Vanitas by Profumum is, by far, the most potent vanilla fragrance I've tried to date.

    Just put some Raw Vanilla by Coty in an atomizer and go crazy. Then when you get tired of the smell you'll have only spent $10 or less.

    On a budget? Look here:

    http://www.marksandspencer.com/Perfu...urs+Gourmandes

    Lots of vanilla in that line!

    Do try Givenchy Pi too, not all-out vanilla but absolutely wonderful stuff with a hint of almond or amaretto.
