Your favourite vanilla fragrance?

I have been searching for a good vanilla fragrance forever! Any recommendations? I have tried Jo Malone vanilla anise, Diptyque eau duelle and Tom Ford tobacco vanille. I do like the Jo Malone one, but it's discontinued 😞 Any other suggestions? I'd prefer niche brand 🙂 Thanks!

Re: Your favourite vanilla fragrance?

If you're looking for niche, give Arquiste's The Architects Club a try. It's a crisp, woody vanilla if my memory serves me right.

 

Not a huge vanilla person, so I can't really speak for favourites. But I can vouch for Arquiste- even if a lot of their perfumes didn't end up being buys for me (mostly because they weren't "me" enough), the notes blend beautifully and longevity is top-notch (projection varies- some tend to hang much closer to the skin than others).

I really like By Kilian Amber Ood.  While it says ood, it is not really an ood fragrance.  There is only the very slightest hint of ood.  Some people can't smell the ood at all.  Mostly, when I wear this fragrance I smell amber and vanilla.  Definitely a niche fragrance and if you like amber also, one I suggest you check out as the vanilla notes are lovely.

Re: Your favourite vanilla fragrance?

This is my favorite, wear-almost-everyday fragrance: VANILLE GIVREE DES ANTILLES BY LA MAISON DE LA VANILLE (sorry for all caps but had to copy and paste because the name is so frickin long). Sephora used to carry this, maybe 8-10 years ago. When they discontinued it, I stocked up on bottles for $5.00. Unreal.

 

This is a sweet vanilla, but not in a cloying, baked goods way. It's an adult vanilla, with a touch of patchouli and incense, myrrh I believe. It's also not so "oriental" that you can only wear it in cold weather or at night. I wear this almost daily in warm California weather, and it's never too much. Even though it's not listed as a note, I get a bit of orange blossom from this as well. It's harder to find in the U.S. so I suggest getting a sample first. 

 

The Madagascar from La Maison is also a favorite. It's a heavier, smokier vanilla. It doesn't last very long on me though.  The Antilles lasts all day!

Creed Sublime Vanille. Drool worthy, and it's my wedding fragrance so I'm particular to it

Re: Your favourite vanilla fragrance?

I like Atelier Vanilla perfume.

Re: Your favourite vanilla fragrance?

Lavanila

Re: Your favourite vanilla fragrance?

I agree! Love this scent! 

Re: Your favourite vanilla fragrance?

Thank you ladies for all the awesome suggestions!

Re: Your favourite vanilla fragrance?

Atelier has an amazing vanilla, and it layer with their orange sanguine to become one of the most phenomenal scents in the world.

Re: Your favourite vanilla fragrance?

I adore vanilla scents.  Check out Comptoir Sud Pacifique.  Their Vanille Extreme and Vanilla Coco are in regular rotation among my many fragrances.  

Re: Your favourite vanilla fragrance?

I agree about CSP.

Don't like vanilla. Still can't figure out if I don't like it or just do not want to smell like it! lol!

 

But, I think this one smells good from the samples I have received from Sephora.

Re: Your favourite vanilla fragrance?

I also suggest the Vanille Extreme, every time I wear it someone asks me what I am wearing and for me to write it down for them! 

Re: Your favourite vanilla fragrance?

I second the Vanille Extreme but my personal favorite is Vanille Abricot. It's very sweet, so if that's not your thing you probably won't like it, but I love it.

Re: Your favourite vanilla fragrance?

I like sweet! Thank you. Next time I go to Sephora I will get a sample! 

Re: Your favourite vanilla fragrance?

The only downside is that it doesn't last very long on me. But that's ok, just gives me another reason to put more on  🙂

Re: Your favourite vanilla fragrance?

I normally wear floral perfumes, but I do enjoy a select few vanilla perfumes. I like TokyoMilk Dark in 62 Tainted Love. It is my first and favorite vanilla perfume. 

My lists also include Nirvana Black and Alien.

Re: Your favourite vanilla fragrance?

Ooh yes, I forgot about Tainted Love.

Re: Your favourite vanilla fragrance?

So...for a while I was dabbing clear vanilla extract on myself....which works very well and stays on for a very long time. But if you don't want to smell like straight up vanilla (which I do) I also really like The Blend 03 Warm Vanilla Amber. It's a very warm and sexy vanilla. 

Re: Your favourite vanilla fragrance?

Shannon, what a great idea!!

Re: Your favourite vanilla fragrance?

The blend! I wanted to try that brand!
