    Dries Van Noten is a creamy vanilla and opulent milky sandalwood fragrance. There's really nothing in the way of incense. Eau des Baux has incense listed in the note profile but to me it's more about light vanilla over a bed of cypress and it has a whole cigar box type vibe. DVN is much heavier on the vanilla. Tam Dao is more about sandalwood alone with supporting notes in EdP concentration while the EdT of Tam Dao is cedar/sandalwood and supporting notes.

    This.

    I haven't tried the Z&V ones, but among the other three Eau des Baux best fits what you are looking for.

    Best?

    There really, really is no best. Not definitively. It's all up to you, what you want, what you like.

    I'd recommend the L'Occitane, but who knows, you might think another is the best?

    This is Him! has the most incense of those listed.

    If you don't mind really sweet stuff, then try

    Raghba by Lattafa

    There's Raghba, Raghba Wood Intense, and Raghba Classic, from sweetest to less sweet. All around $30 and nuclear strength in each.
    Most worn:

    Black Comme des Garçons, Borneo 1834 Serge Lutens, Patchouli Santa Maria Novella

    I own and enjoy both - This is him and Just Rock! - and would have a hard time to decide which one I like better.
    Just Rock is probably the more mass pleasing one.

    Maybe you could give Parfums de Marly Carlisle a try, too?
    It's not the most incense heavy scent, but you get some smokey woods and a dark vanilla note.

    I love cdg 2 man. It has a vonderful citrus opening, nice cedar, and nice incense. But it lacks in smoothness, it's quiet dry. So, could be a nice option to layer cdg 2 man and a pure simple vanilla?

    Try wearing 2 Man over Eau des Missions and see how you get on if that's what you're thinking. Sort of like a body wash/spray adding to 2 Man.

    Passage d'Enfer. The lily reads as a sweetish vanilla in my opinion instead of being obviously floral.

    From this list, likelier and thus tending to prefer Eau des Baux

    but also to add, in no particular order, especially vintage Gucci Envy,(irrespective if current or vintage for all of the following ones) Heritage EDT and/or EDP, Chergui, Siwa by Memo Paris, Aramis Havana, Jaipur Homme EDT and/or EDP

    to a (re) testing list in no particular order

    I don't get incense from Eau des Baux, but I do get it from Eau Duelle. That would have been my answer had this thread been a question of the title.

    I definitely get incense from Eau des Baux. In fact, when I read the thread title "woody incense vanilla", before even opening the thread, I thought "Eau des Baux"
