    Default Your favorite cinnamon fragrances?

    It’s easily one of my favorite smells, never had it in a fragrance. Really introduced to it by my grandpa (PawPaw) and loved the way it smells and tastes. Would like something very cinnamon like to remind me of him while he’s not around. Thank you in advance for the suggestions!

    There's a sort of cinammon sub theme to all of parfum de marly oriental fragrances but it isn't your typical big red chewing gum cinnamon.

    I get a lot of cinnamon from Tom Ford Italian Cypress, which in turn is supposed to smell a bit like the aforementioned Halston Z-14, although I haven't tried that one. Italian Cypress reminds me of a woodsy, piney potpourri.

    My favorite would be Chanel Egoiste. Another would be Creed Baie de Genievre.

    I do enjoy Hermessence Ambre Narguile and Frederic Malle Musc Ravageur.

    Je suis un homme - EDLO, although I never really thought of it as much of a cinnamon fragrance, but it's certainly there if I think about it.

    Chergui - smells a lot like cinnamon to me.

    Tobacco Vanille

    I get a VERY strong hit of cinnamon in the opening.

    +1 Rousse

    L de Lolita Lempicka is also good, but getting harder to find.

    Two that I haven't tried but would be definitely worth trying given the quality of the house are Diptyque L'Eau and their Canelle candle.

    I don't get much cinnamon from Musc Ravageur at all.

    Default Re: Your favorite cinnamon fragrances?

    As a grandad reminding fragrance, Old Spice. (A fair bit of cinnamon and cloves here)

    Also vintage Obsession For Men and +1 for Musk Ravageur.

    I detect no cinnamon in many of those mentioned above. From what I own, Bois 1920's Dolce di Giorno has a prominent cinnamon note to me. Also from a local Thai house, Cafe de Parfum, Rustic Dawn is like a cinnamon heavy apple pie.

    I've never tried recent/current Z-14, but cinnamon is certainly not something I notice in the Jeff Gordon bottles and earlier.

    CK Obsession is the first thing that comes to mind.

    There's some nice cinnamon in Santa Maria Novella Acqua di Cuba.

    Seconding especially Jaipur Homme, Egoiste, Chergui, Endymion and Old Spice among the ones already mentioned and also adding vintage Heritage EDT which, for some reason, has a quite perceptible though fairly moderate cinnamon note, apart from its vanilla, cilantro, woody-floral dominants, during the evolution of its opening and mid phases

    I'll second the choices for Opium by YSL, Meharees by L'Erbolario (NOT L'Occitane! Though it's easy to mix them, I know) and Chergui by Serge Lutens.
    I personally didn't get much cinnamon in 5 o'clock au gingembre when I tried it, but it doesn't mean it isn't there, maybe it's just my nose. Edit to be more clear: it's not that I didn't smell it at all or it wasn't there, but it seemed very strangely sour to me, almost like it's not cinnamon but something entirely else.

    I do love the scent of cinnamon, too, it's nice to see lots of recommendations to try.
