    Default This note in a mens fragrance.

    I get this whiff or note often at womens fragrances, maybe it is always the same fragrance or it is a often used note.
    It smells as follow: a sweet light fresh vanille kind. The vanille here is not heavy aromatic like you get from DHI, Fahrenheit Parfum or JPG, those are heavy and overwhelming which gives you a gourmandish experience like eating danio/dannon vanille. The one I am looking for has this light sweetness of vanilla with a fresh touch(maybe mint, wood or amber). And this one I smelled once from a mens fragrance. I even don't know if it is vanille or another notes but this is what I am searching for at a mens fragrance (which I once smelled).
    I hope this brings you to an idea.

    Since amber was mentioned, perhaps also a sweeter, non-pungent, less "sweaty"/overpowering style of leathery (rather like a suede type leather) musk and/or civet. Have noticed this in a few of the sweeter Guerlain masculines like Habit Rouge including flankers and exclusive line unisex ones.
    But also in masculines by Lapidus, Bogart, Lutens and other more or less similar fragrance houses this leathery-suede and only moderately animalic, sweet smelling development towards their base/final notes.

    My guess is also that it's amber.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Benzoin? It's been known to be confused with vanilla.
