    Default Vanilla Frag for Summer or Spring

    I love the Dry Down of The Third Man so much that I am trying to find that in a bottle. Are there any Vanilla Frags like that? I would prefer something I can wear in the Summer or Spring.

    Have you tried Caron Pour Un Homme?

    I get mostly musk and moss from that Caron dry down (vintage) so not similar but a great summer oriental with vanilla IMO would be Minotaure by Paloma Picasso.
    Currently wearing: Zen for Men by Shiseido

    Hermessence Vanille Galante. And even more so, Diptyque Eau Duelle

    imo vanilla can be really projecting and cloying in the heat, take care. I like Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille for example but in summer it just blooms into a cloud of sweet stink.

    +1 -- I tend to avoid 'vanillas' in the summer, but Vanilia by L'Artisan works well for some reason. Can't compare with the drydown of the 3rd Man though, which is super special.

    This is a good one but smells very much like Nicole Miller and I already own that one.

    I have noticed most Vanilla frags are for the winter. So I will stick to wearing in the winter.

    My belated recommendation, a rather good Dior spring-summer flanker: Dior Fahrenheit 32 (vanilla, orange blossom, white florals, all blended in a rather fresh male fragrance).

    Ted Lapidus TL pour Lui: lavender, bergamot & mint over orange flower & vanilla, great blend of caramelized-incensy vanilla there, suitable for spring/summer evenings, imo.

    I have never tried Third Man but Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin has an amazing vanilla drydown and I personally find it suitable for summer/spring.
