    What does Midnight in Paris smell like? Which would be more sensual for nighttime use, that or DH Intense? I've never smelled either.

    for a seasoned nose, once you try the pricy vanille by di orio you may not like to wear another vanilla afterwords.

    Tomorrow, tomorrow my wait will be over! Cuir Beluga should arrive to my door. Been longing for this vanilla since a super kind basenoter included a sample of it with a swap last year.

    Cuir Beluga is FANTASTIC.

    With all due respect, di Oro is spicy/earthy and Eau Duelle is spicy vanilla rather than smooth/creamy.
    I put Cuir Beluga and SDV in the smooth creamy category.

    Of the stuff I've smelled, and that's really not a lot, I like D&G the one, YSL La Nuit De L'homme, HM, Creed VIW, V&R spicebomb. Those may not have vanilla but efintely get a creamy and delicious vibe with all of them

    true, it is spicy earthy, i realise it does not fit 'creamy'. i believe 'spicy earthy ' is something more interesting in general

    Yes it is a good one!
    Some folks like their vanillas very vanilla (SDV is this...with booze added), and others just want the vanilla to be a featured player but not the overwhelming. OP depends what you're looking for in vanillas.

    My favorite vanillas or scents that contain vanilla:

    1. Dior Homme Intense
    2. Cuir Beluga
    3. Spiritueuse Double Vanille
    4. Midnight in Paris

  10. #40

    Definitely Eau Duelle
    My current top ten:
    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Tonka Imperiale
    3. Dior Homme
    4. Pure Malt
    5. Oud Wood
    6. Ambre Nuit
    7. L'air Du Desert Marocain
    8. Noir de Noir
    9. Apple Brandy
    10.Straight to Heaven

    Any of these ones that are easy to get? More on the designer than niche?

    I don't really wanna deal online, and being from Vancouver, I feel like I have very limited options as to where to buy in person.

    there is a store for niche in vancouver called "the perfume shoppe". go there and ask them for vanillas. they might be expensive though. they have montales so ask them about montale's vanille absolue (i have personally not tried this one).

    if you want vanilla like that is affordable, try givenchy pi.

    Guerlains SDV for the first hour or so is fantastic with it's complex boozy vanilla which really is intoxicating. Unfortunately after that wonderful opening it becomes thin and bland for the rest of it's life. If only that boozy opening could last until the drydown as this frag would be a must buy at all costs. But alas it's not imo.

    A lot of great vanilla fragrances out there (GSDV, TV, Cuir Beluga, etc), but for a more straight-up vanilla, I like Creed Sublime Vanille the best. There is a little tonka in there to give it some depth, but the vanilla is more center stage than most other great ones.

    Try a sample of Parfums de Marly 'Safanad'. Very smooth, nice vanilla. A bit like Tobacco Vanilla, but I think it's better.

    Best vanilla scents I have put my nose on are Spiritueuse Double Vanille and Art Collection 102 by Micallef. Both are very expensive though.

    This is an excellent fragrance. Can't find it anymore though. I got mine from a company overseas which I was very lucky. Not strictly vanilla but still one of the best vanillas. Micallef's other vanillas besides this one and art collection 102 were big disappointments for me.

    By Kilian - A Taste of Heaven - one of the creamiest vanillas I have experienced (lot of lavender along for the ride too, but that is one creamy vanilla - delicious...)

    I believe you are looking for Givenchy Pi

    Although I'm not a fan of sweet, cloying synth-sugar trainwrecks (such as Givenchy Pi), I'm into perfumes that put a twist on the note (Eau Duelle, for example). A couple more that haven't been mentioned: Parfumerie Generale's Indochine and, for a unique cheapy, Tokyo Milk's Dead Sexy. Be warned though, the latter smells like pencil erasers. Delicious pencil erasers, though.

    If you want a lustful vanilla with smooth honey and tobacco then you need to try Back to Black - By Kilian. You'll be spending most of your money on the packaging if you go for the full bottle, so if you're not bothered about that then you are better off getting the 50ml refill for a much lower price, which you can fill into your own atomiser.
