    Default What are some good Vanilla scents for under $100.

    I have or had Givenchy Pi. It's almost gone now.

    I want to try something new. Probably a couple of new ones.

    IMO Givenchy Pi is a good one. Otherwise, would suggest these -

    Habit Rouge EdT
    Bvlgari Black
    Dior Homme Intense
    Ultra Male
    Fahrenheit Parfum
    Nicolai Vanille Tonka
    Dior Homme Intense
    Heritage EdT
    Caron Pour Un Homme

    +1 Fahrenheit Parfum
    +1 Dior Homme Intense

    From the mainstream releases, I'd also recommend Luna Rossa Extreme by Prada.

    These are very heavy on vanilla, and a bit more left field:

    Un Bois Vanille by Serge Lutens
    Spiritueuse Double Vanille by Guerlain
    Pure Vanilla by Lavanila
    Modern Muse Nuit by Estee Lauder
    Sandan Sandalo by Bruno Acampora

    Default Re: What are some good Vanilla scents for under $100.

    Seconding especially Givenchy Pi, Habit Rouge, Heritage, Pour un Homme, DHI among the very good aforementioned suggestions, while also taking the liberty to add Eau des Baux, Jaipur Homme EDP among designer choices, while among niche ones Chergui (though vanilla is not listed officially in this fragrance, the sensation of a vanillic gourmand tobacco still remains quite present) and Un Bois Vanille, both by Serge Lutens, Siwa by Memo Paris and/or Idole EDP by Lubin being slightly above the required price range but still feasible with decants, smaller bottle sizes etc.

    I don't wear it but I think Hanae Mori HM is very vanilla centric and a good buy.

    This is actually not an easy question to answer anymore in this price range where vanilla is the star of the show on the masculine side. My initial thought was to recommend Fahrenheit 32 from Dior, but over the last few years supply has dried up and it's getting expensive online.

    As others have mentioned Loccitane Eau Des Baux and Tom Ford Noir Extreme have prominent Vanilla, but I feel it's more of a supporting player in both compositions.

    Tauer Vanilla Flash can be found below $100 and another one worth sampling is MM by the fireplace which is slightly above $100.

    Good luck on your hunt.

    Two of my favorite designer vanilla fragrances are Joop Thrill and Lomani Ignition. They've both gone up in price, but I see you can still get them for under 100 dollars online if you do your homework.

    For vanilla being the main star:
