    It only smells like "lipstick" when you shove it up your nose. On the other hand, smelling its sillage (just like you smelled it on that person), you would smell its true composition -- mostly iris, amber, and cocoa.

    Since you said that it had excellent projection, I would say it was vintage Dior Homme EDT.

    Anyone who said "vintage" Dior is a fragrance guy. And a fragrance guy that said he was wearing vintage Dior, without using the specific word "intense," was likely referring to Dior Homme.

    So, like NewHaarlem and others, my vote goes to vintage Dior Homme. And yes, it absolutely has vanilla, and depending on the guy's skin chemistry the vanilla could have been pretty pronounced.
    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

    Ah, you got me

    I think it has to be vintage Dior Homme Intense or vintage Dior Homme in any case. Both come across as smelling "vanilla" like ( I realize that vanilla may not be a note in it, but just how they come across as semi-edible gourmands). Both have also had a good amount of hype with regards to reformulations and the usage of the term vintage. The guy must read fragrance forums .
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Aramis New West, Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    Perhaps it was the cocoa I'm interpreting as vanilla. Now I'm wanting to get a hold of some just so I can tear it to pieces. Dior Homme, Dior Homme Intense. Vintage. Definitely gonna hafta wait till after I get the bill from the piano restorer.

    Also pretty sure it was Dior Homme. It seems be getting more and more popular, here in Brussels I am smelling it a lot (the original and the Intense).
