    Default Which "Vanilla" here would be sensual, and great for Night ?

    If we are looking for a sumptuous, smooth and nice vanilla scent for night (not cloying), which of these fragrances would you recommend?

    Ignition - Lomani
    Sculpture - Nikos
    Midnight in Paris

    ..any others?

    Please keep it to mainstream. Something not "in your face" vanilla but a more well done, careful and thought out vanilla would be nice. Thanks

    Midnight in Paris (the only one from your list that I've tried) is great for a night out, but does not contain any vanilla.

    Caron, Pour Un Homme. The notes only list Lavender, vanilla and musk, but clearly that's wrong because there's no way to miss the ambergris in this one. And I mean that as a good thing. It's excellent and can be had on the cheap online.

    If it's a hot evening, and you like lemon also, Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche is tough to beat.

    Mainstream. Not "in your face vanilla". Not cloying.

    Sublime Vanille by Creed is the best smelling well blended vanilla I've found. It's a bit expensive but if you're looking for quality......

    I agree completely with this. Definitely one of the best. However, I think the OP was looking for something less than straight-up vanilla. And also something "mainstream" (which I took to mean not Creed Royal Exclusives price).

    Dior Homme Intense has a nice smooth vanilla accord and is mainstream.

    I must admit. Jack Hunter has made another excellent recommendation. DHI. A little piece of heaven in the bottle.

    Are we talking about the current DHI in stores now? The "black collar" around the sprayer I suppose.

    If you want well-done, careful, and not in your face vanilla then you need to check out Eau Duelle by Diptyque. It's cedar, vetiver, a little smoke, and a restrained vanilla--present, obviously the center of the fragrance, but never 'too much.'

    It's really good. I just got a bottle and could not be happier. It's quickly made its way into my top five. It might not be as mainstream as you like but it's easy to find and well worth it. Try to sample it if you can.

    MNiP is great but not really a vanilla frag.
    Want to trade - Chanel Platinum Egoiste for Dior Eau Sauvage...

    Agrees with this, Eau Duelle has a very good top to base development.
    To OP, from your list, I'd pick MIP. For something more mainstream, I'd recommend Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin and Eau des Baux.

    Shalimar, Jicky, Bulgari Black. I hear Vanilia was one of the best, but I never got the chance to smell it.

    From the above suggestions, I'd fully second especially DHI and Caron pour un Homme.

    Is there any Kiehl's store/counter/pop-up near where you located?
    They have one named Vanilla & Cedarwood and it is very close to what Tobacco Vanille smells like.

    You guys are talking about DHI, is this the current formulation or the one before it?

    I was talking about the vintage DHI that has the smooth vanilla accord. I only smelled the current one very briefly some time ago, maybe someone can chime in and compare the vanilla in both.
