Vanillas are tricky for me. Generally, I don't like overly gourmand/cupcake-y vanillas and I have sampled many Vanilla scents that smell very good on paper or out of the bottle, but I wouldn't want them on my skin. This was the case with Serge Lutens' Un Bois Vanille which I liked well enough in the store to buy and then didn't enjoy wearing at all. I found it overly sweet …Read more

I hate the atomizer bottle and think the fragrance is not worth the hype or the price (and I am a staunch Guerlain extrait fan). Instead I would rather wear Andy Tauers Tauerville Vanilla Flash, a well priced niche scent that is dark, complex and cohesive. And exists in rollerball format.

SDV is a 2007 boozy vanilla that includes, as per Fragrantica: pink pepper, bergamot and …

Oh......my......god. This is pure vanilla heaven. Just the right hint of booze and sweetness, smooth, warm and delectable. Do I need this? No. Do I want this? Hell yes. I would gladly trade most of my current collection for a FB of this beauty.

This feels like an aloof cousin of TF Tobacco Vanille and diptyque Eau Duelle. It shares that breath of smooth vanilla, but SDV is infinitely more boozy. I do not mind boozy but I would prefer this spiced rum effect if it was more buttery or creamy. The invocation of "double" vanilla suggests a richness that I don't get from this scent. It is very lovely and great if you want a …Read more

This is a nice fragrance ..... I pick up on a boozy vanilla however, I also pick up on a smokiness however, I mean that literally as it smells like cigarette smoke (which I do not like) ...... the cigarette accord does eventually fade on my skin and turns sweeter and this is what I like about Spiritueuse Double Vanille (I would love it if it did not smell like cigarettes at times as the rest of …Read more

This must be the booziest vanilla I've ever tried. I was totally unprepared for the initial burst of olive martini (well, more olives, less martini), not sure if I liked it. Sprayed and went to bed. I woke up in the middle of the night and noticed the most gorgeous balsamic, deep, creamy vanilla I've ever smelt and stayed this way until vanishing. Has decent sillage and …Read more

I love Guerlain...Mitsouko, Shalimar, Samsara.., but was disappointed by this scent. It is made well, I love vanilla, it definitely has that "Guerlain" something, but the tobacco is hard for me to get past. It smells fantastic in the bottle, but not on me. Maybe on a man???

I bought a decant from The Perfumed Court several years ago and became obsessed with this Spiriteuse Double Vanille. It reminds me of the delicious pipe tobacco my uncle used to smoke...fresh, warm vanilla pudding...and something else comforting, but unidentifiable to me as yet. I HAD to have a full bottle...and purchased one from Nordstrom for my husband to give to me for Valentine's Day …Read more

I've wanted to try this fragrance for years, because I love vanilla and oriental fragrances. When first applied, Spiritueuse Double Vanille smelled similar to the way Lolita Lempicka's L De Lolita Lempicka smells on me - spicy, dark, sweet. As it dries down, though, Double Vanille starts to remind me of candle wax and melting plastic. I'm not even sure that I'd say it …Read more

I had to say Yes, I would buy this again (even though I didn't buy it the first time). I am one who loves the scent of vanilla, but have never felt the need to own more than a couple. I've never smelled one that stood out too much from the rest. All very pleasant--some more or less than others--but still, it's just vanilla. THIS vanilla is different. I smell all the notes …Read more
