Topic: what are some good vanilla oriental fragrances?

I really want a  perfume that's floral oriental and/or quite heavy on vanilla but most of this style of perfume seem to be either sugary celebrity scents or very old ladyish. Very heavy perfumes don't suit me eg Dior Poison etc.

Re: what are some good vanilla oriental fragrances?

Which perfumes do you actually like, can you give us some examples?

Thanks! glad

I am not picky, just discerning.

Re: what are some good vanilla oriental fragrances?

There must be hundreds of topics about vanilla here already, maybe it will help to browse them first? glad

Do you have any other fragrance you could name? Unfortunately I don't know parfum initiale...  grater

And did you mean http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.218.jpg Dior Poison  or http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.219.jpg Dior Hypnotic Poison ?

'cause the second is a very good vanilla scent... I would recommend especially http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.9600.jpg Dior Hypnotic Poison Eau Sensuelle  for you to try

as well as

Also http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.5729.jpg Kenzo 5:40 pm in Madagascar has beautiful vanilla, a bit generic, but pretty!

Re: what are some good vanilla oriental fragrances?

I found that http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.92.jpg Yves Saint Laurent Cinema  fits into the vanilla oriental category BUT with a twist , try it it's worth it, I wouldn't even come near a vanilla but this is quite good!

Re: what are some good vanilla oriental fragrances?

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.170.jpg Lancome Hypnose is a beautiful sweet oriental vanilla and it's young and modern but not too sugary.

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.2138.jpg  Lancome Hypnose Eau Legere is also nice but fresher and lighter.

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.215.jpg  Dior Dior Addict has lots of vanilla and floral notes, not overly sweet and it's modern.

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.176.jpg Chanel Allure eau de parfum is a very sophisticated fragrance that you might like.

Re: what are some good vanilla oriental fragrances?

I love orientals and vanilla too, but don't like very strong scents either and find many of the real vanilla fragrances far too sweet. These are my favourites for a more subtle fragrance that fits the bill glad


http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.6459.jpg Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise It's listed as floral fruity gourmand but I have no idea why! This is spicy, with tuberose and a hint of vetiver and a classy vanilla, that doesn't punch you in the face.

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.3334.jpg The Body Shop Neroli Jasmin Great oriental floral with gorgeous sandalwood and vanilla base.

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.502.jpg Chanel Allure Very pretty and feminine, not too strong, lots of vanilla and water lily.

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.6989.jpg L`Occitane en Provence Voyage en Mediterranee Labdanum de Seville

Great oriental, lots of labdanum with beautiful vanilla.

Hope that helps! glad

How about http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.455.jpg Lolita Lempicka L de Lolita Lempicka ?

On me it's very spicy but on others it can go too sweet.  Worth a try.

Re: what are some good vanilla oriental fragrances?

This is considered an oriental vanilla. It has spicy/woodsy beginning, and a beautiful praline drydown
