    Dior's Hypnotic Poison would probably top that list for me. Also, I really enjoy the milky vanilla base note in Diesel Zero Plus Masculine provided by the combination of vanilla and heliotrope that join the spicy cinnamon powder top notes.

The vanilla is what gives this scent its sweetness IMHO and for me the vanilla is just right - not too much, not too little.

    If all you want is vanilla however, this scent is not for you.
    I love Aventus but would not say it has vanilla. I use TV to compare vanilla. I have not found any other scent that has as much vanilla as TV or done as well.

    I can wholeheartedly echo the love for the vanilla note in Bulgari Black, especially in the drydown - it's just so comforting and warm and enveloping.

    If you like new indie niche fragrance, check out "Memoirs of a Trespasser" by Imaginary Authors - it's a really boozy vanilla overtop a resinous, woody base - smooth and distinctly vanilla.

    I think the original question is perhaps too broad.

    To me, vanilla has three distinct sets of scents:

    1. The more or less "pure" vanilla scents. Spiriteuse Double Vanille is the emperor of this group for me, and I spray it on myself often at night because I love it so much. Others I enjoy are Creed's Sublime Vanille and Diptyque's Eau Duelle.

    2. The "modified" vanilla scents. These use vanilla as a prominent note, but mix it with something else equally or nearly as prominent. Tobacco Vanille comes to mind, as does Le Male. Tobacco Vanille is my favorite here.

    3. The vanilla "based" scents. These have vanilla somewhere in the pyramid to give a scent depth, but many people wouldn't say they're really vanilla. This category is huge, but I don't think that's what the op is looking for. But if I had to throw one in here, my favorite would be Dior Homme, which is vanilla with Iris and cocoa.

    Of course, categories two and three wash over into each other.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Eau Duelle by Diptyque gets my vote, for it includes some cinnamon and juniper to makes things more exciting.

    Another Jaipur vote

    Right now I'm loving Jaipur too. I get a lovely cinnamon note first and then it settles down to a very Shalimar-like vanilla base. I would like to try the eau de parfum version next.

    Is there no love for Dzing! anymore? This is my favorite vanilla based scent. It is more prominent in the base of course.

    I am in agreement with hedonist about Patchouli 24 as well. A fantastic phenolic, earthy, dry vanilla.

    Dzing! Does have vanilla but it is so tainted that it feels like a MorphedNilla.
