Vanilla shake with 60 vol.%
"A little more vanilla in your rum?"
"Nah, vanilla's too sweet for me, it makes you fat." ;-)

To me, this fragrance is like Mon Cheri at a child's birthday party:

On the one hand a NO GO, on the other hand a "LOL! What the heck? Open up a few more packs." ;-))

Quite clearly in the foreground is in the Spritvanille the RUM, which greets one directly with the first spray! He also stays a short while and tempts to inwardly sing "And a bottle of rum ..." ;-) Then, however, Guerlain's Grail, the VANILLE chimes in, and he just becomes one:

DELICIOUS!

At least that's how I feel when I wrap myself in the tipsy pod, I don't even notice the other ingredients like pepper, rose, incense, etc...
Do not have to be present also large ;-)

N neat Captain Morgan, stirred with ner vanilla bean, what more do you want?

Love or not?
Everyone has you, everyone raves about you, and everyone wants you.
Since I have heard only positive about you, it was clear that I must test you. So a sample was bought directly.
Full of anticipation I opened the envelope and sprayed.
When I smelled you the first time, my first thought was "bah! What is that?"
It smelled so blatantly like alcohol, it was starting to hurt my nose.
Something like that is supposed to be good?
After a few minutes, it was unfortunately not better..so I've already written you off and put aside.
After about an hour, I was asked by my husband, what smells so good here?
So I took another sniff of the arm and I was speechless. It was a dense, dark and coherent warm vanilla. The alcohol note was gone and the vanilla remained.
I wonder if you can move in with me .. I do not know yet

Diet suggestion
Dear fellow fragrance lovers and of course fellow fragrance lovers! Who knows this? In the evening when everything and everyone is tucked away you make yourself comfortable on the couch - ready to relax. And then after 11 to 67 minutes comes that hunger for something sweet. Or salty. Or both at the same time. Since I sprayed SDV from a bottling on my wrist one night, this appetite is as unchecked as ever on the mat but is perfectly content to hang on my wrist. I inhale and feel beautiful. Satisfied. Sated with a freshness that has sweetness in it that doesn't stick but lives. We don't get up together because then you are gone my beloved scent. But we stay together until I fall asleep. So you make sure that no evening calorie has a chance with me. I like you..

I'm in love...
What a great scent!
I don't like floral scents. Generally rather fruity fresh. But in winter I always have the desire for a warm scent. The problem: most of them kill me (and probably my environment). Through dear Leni I became aware of this scent. Since I live in Munich I could test it and the others from the series in one. The SDV is for me by far the most beautiful warm, spicy, vanilla scent I know. I could bathe in it...
It is not intrusive and in no way artificial. One feels comfortably embraced

Outrageously good!
Hello Spiritueuse Double Vanilla you little, cheeky rascal!

I discovered you for the first time a few years ago but unfortunately you never really interested me, although your face is beautiful! It took an eternity until we met again in 2019 and I decided: One day I have to test the Lümmel again. Well, a few days ago I opened my purse to miserly people, which was easier said than done, because a cutting torch was needed (miserly people) and I ordered SDV, Cuir Beluga and Tonka Imperiale for bottling. I like all three of them extraordinarily well and they give me a "want to have" feeling, but my wallet has a completely different opinion than I do and is hidden deep in a mine adit. On the eternally long search for my miserly purse, I always sniffed my hand like a drug sniffer dog to find out what great things were being processed there. Strangely enough, every day I smelled something different there... Sometimes incense, then rum, then mostly vanilla... I am and will always be a strange time man (as Angelo Merte once said)
My, my, what's the matter? Jo freili!

Directly after spraying on I sniff vanilla and incense or sometimes only vanilla and rum or sometimes almost only vanilla, where benzoin, bergamot, pepper, jasmine and ylang ylang these bullies hide, is not known until now! My thesis: They all have shares in the so-called "Stay-Away-Fund", i.e. Mr. Guerlain pays in money every month, so that they all stay away and don't show up, otherwise it might look like bulky waste? In the drydown, when the incense and rum evaporate and go to play with Keilo, the vanilla is the only one left behind and promises to stay by my or your side until the bitter end.

Durability is quite ok, Sillage not so but it doesn't matter, you don't have to bother your fellow men
By the way: here and at Cuir Beluga one or more beautiful vanilla has been processed, which differs clearly from the synthetic ones from cheap products. Besides, the vanilla seems to me to be a bit fresher (is it because of the bergamot of this rascal?) than at Cuir Beluga but towards the end it is, I think, the same vanilla
Portable as a man? Let's ask Ludwig... Ja freili!
Only the price is not ok for me but that's how I feel about Creed & co. too.

Yeah, you better hurry up!

Caramel vanilla hugs
Vanilla and benzoin –the dominating combo in SDV– are a match so perfect that it should be regarded in the same category as other classics such as mint and chocolate, lime and coconut, rum and raisin or cheese and onion. The stuff great memories and clogged arteries are made of.

Here the vanilla brings warmth and sweetness while the benzoin adds smoothness and depth, resulting in an accord not too far away from caramel or golden syrup bubbling up in a pan. It's a thick and pleasant treacle-like aroma, comforting and slightly boozy like the hug of a drunken relative on New Year's Eve and with just a hint of ylang-ylang or pink pepper every now and then to keep things interesting.

All in all Spiritueuse Double Vanille is a cozy cold weather fragrance well suited for intimate and special occasions, or for any time a gourmand craving may arise; a scent that would be just criminal for any sweet-toothed vanilla lover to miss.

Feel-good moments
As an avowed vanilla fan, it was only a matter of time until SDV and I had to find a symbiosis that couldn't be better A fragrance that gives me a good feeling and always works in every situation in life.
I smell in the top note a gourmand vanilla that starts already quite opulent, which is super cushioned by the slightly alcoholic note that I like very much and gives the fragrance the special note and lasts for about 20 minutes, the strongest component after that I clearly smell out the rose, (which I can not stand otherwise) but in this case the fragrance really beautiful underlines and makes the scent a bit more perfumed and the gourmand character that remains all the time a little cushioned.
Sillage is acceptable and durability is really good even if it is rather close after the first 2 hours, but for a vanilla scent especially as a male carrier safe enough Whether it is worth the price of more than 200 Euros is something everyone has to decide for himself, for me as a die-hard vanilla fan it was worth every Euro and balm for the soul.

Double vanilla where'd you go?
During my personal perfume-journey, I already had this situation several times, one asks and/or informs oneself about a certain scent and then one goes from the hundredth to the thousandth. Instead of having information about a scent, all of a sudden there are five scents on the test list that you might like and absolutely have to get under your nose. Under one of my last comments or statements I was recommended this Guerlain Spiritueuse Double Vanilla.
So what do you do if you're a dedicated perfume user? Of course you have to look up the page and see which jewel is behind the name. I saw the name already a few months ago, but I didn't have the intention to become active here. From the notes and comments, the whole thing sounded quite promising and pleasant. For a gourmet nose like me, I knew that sometime here would come the point to organize it as a rehearsal. Now it was time and the scent landed in the mailbox as a bottling. As I currently had quite a lot of fillings ready to be tested, it had to wait for one or the other day.
In contrast to many other fragrances, I was very neutral with this one, had no expectations and wanted to dare to approach the fragrance objectively. In retrospect, this was not a bad idea, so the fragrance could not disappoint me
So what is my problem with the scent now? Not with the composition itself. More with what happened on my skin and what he gave me. In the end, unfortunately, not so much or nothing at all. On my skin the scent apparently has the problem to unfold, which I find quite a pity. The perfume simply does not exist or my skin absorbs everything so that hardly/no notes remain audible. Maybe it's also my nose, in any case I can't perceive this fragrance to 80-90%. A development is also not existing. What a pity
The smell itself would have deserved it, because what I could sniff was not bad. I would have loved to observe more notes, enjoy the composition and follow the development. This, however, should be denied to me. There were fine, unsweet vanilla notes to be guessed, which seemed to be of high quality. This was accompanied by a lot of pepper, which already pushed the vanilla into the background. A little more sweetness probably wouldn't have hurt to let the pepper note appear a little more balanced.

Now what can I say about durability and sillage? The scent is very close to my skin directly after spraying on and can only be heard at the point of application. In the first five minutes a touch of Sillage flashed up briefly, but that's all it was. After 15 minutes I already asked myself if I had applied a fragrance at all. Even on the inner sides of my arms the perfume disappeared after this time and is no longer present for my nose.

With this scent I find what I have achieved extremely sad, as the whole thing had already appealed to me. Maybe I'll have luck with the next vanilla scent.

The vanilla reference scent - double holds better
In the past winter as well as in the course of the last few years I have been able to smell several vanilla scents. Among them some really excellent masterpieces such as Cuir Beluga by Guerlain, Seta by Moresque, Vanilla by Franck Boclet or Vanilla Patchouli by Molinard.

So far so good. Due to the variety of vanilla scents, unfortunately I can't get to know and test them all. But the best candidate for the candidate for the uncrowned vanilla king for my taste so far might be Spiritueuse Double Vanille by Guerlain.

The reasons are as complex as the eau de parfum itself. On the one hand, you get a high-quality vanilla as it is in the olfactory picture book. Absolutely natural, not too sweet and still intense enough.
A little spice and incense around it, so that you find a slightly woody and smoky support, which makes the fragrance a little more masculine and distinctive.

Add some benzoin, which has a balsamic effect, but spiritueuse double vanilla still appears gourmand. The same can be said of rum, which is used very discreetly, but is perceptible. Finding the right adjustment here will probably have been one of the biggest challenges.

After all, and this is another reason, no one less than Jean-Paul Guerlain "the nose" the last heir of the dynasty personally lent his hand to this creation. The perfumer of classic milestones from Arsène Lupin, Chamade, Coriolan, Derby, Eau de Guerlain, Habit Rouge, Héritage, Nahema as well as Samsara has shown once again why he is one of the greats. And with Guerlain, you can assume that at least under his direction, you don't just stir something together, but that you carry out every step with a lot of thoughtfulness, professionalism and quality.

Even though the other perfumes in the "L'Art et la Matière" collection are all almost perfect scents and have their justification, Spiritueuse Double Vanilla is the only one with the signature of a guerlain.

The Amerena cherry on top of the vanilla icing on the cake is still the right choice in terms of projection, durability and bottle design. I would venture the thesis: you can't make a vanilla fragrance any better than this.

Challenge stragglers: Another step on the way to "my" vanilla scent - January 21, 2020
A straggler! Who would have thought that I could still enjoy a - very, very generous - sample of SDV! At this point a very big thank you to Odeur23! Since so much has already been written about this wonderful fragrance, and yet it still needs to receive a little comment as part of my vanilla challenge, I'll just say this much: it's quite wonderful and yes, it can best be compared to Eau des Missions, which - what a coincidence - came into the house as a bottle on the same day. However, I don't find it much less sweet; both are very reserved in their own way and by no means equipped with a dominant sweetness (I had already written in my commentary on "Eau des Missions" that there are also slight after-shave hints). So SDV is not carried by sweetness, but by a multi-layered aroma; clearly noticeable are the quite fresh prelude and the slightly flowery notes, but I hardly feel the incense, which I think is mainly responsible for the dark depth, the minimal smoky touch. That's really great perfume art, of course, to hide the individual components and yet reveal that the overall impression wouldn't work without them - vanilla isn't naturally smoky and dark. This is so wonderfully done! Oh yes, it was a vanilla scent: the vanilla itself is completely present, very fast, very beautiful in team with benzoin, it is a caramel brown vanilla. Guerlain has succeeded fantastically in creating this gourmand note without exaggerated sweetness. Spiritueuse Double Vanilla is similar to Dior's Fève Délicieuse, a spicy gourmand that remains transparent. Visualized, the fragrance, like that of Dior, presents itself as a veil, as a fine breeze, not as a massive block, which is the case with many gourmands despite their fantastic notes. Spiritueuse Double Vanilla, on the other hand, is ethereally delicate and for this reason actually perfect: wearable everywhere, not intrusive, but still with an impressive silage as well as a really good durability. It's a pity that I couldn't test this fragrance earlier, but it's wonderful that it has come to me now!
And there is another one: Tomorrow I can still test Eau Duelle by Diptyque!

Maybe the best vanilla I know, slightly boozy, slightly smoky and never too sweet. The floral touch gives it elegance. The sillage is weak.

Lush vanilla, versatile and fine. Light caramelly with a teanote, but with background freshness, subtly smoky, woody, fruity and ambery.
