These are probably my 2 favorite fragrances, but I prefer vanilla as a warm basenote, not the heavy, sickly sweet, gourmand punch-in-the-face vanilla. So far, by search has lead me to 24 Faubourg. Any other thoughts?

I prefer a fresher orange blossom -- the vanilla would flatten it out. I think Prada did an 'Infusion' version, which I quite liked -- might have been a limited edition though.

I haven't tried this, but Berdoues Les Contes Bucoliques Fleur d'Oranger is supposed to have a vanilla and musk base.

I'm confused now -- I thought that was the Prada version was called -- can't really check now, supposed to be working

Here is the link to Fragrantica's page for the fragrance I mentioned:
There are lots of other fragrances called either Fleur d'Oranger or Fleurs d'Oranger, including the L'Artisan, the Prada, the Lutens, the CĂ´tĂ© Bastide, the Fragonard, the L'Occitane, the B&BW/Le Couvent des MinĂ®mes, the Yves Rocher and maybe others I don't know of.

Wow, looks like I need to try Sweet Redemption too.
Of the ones I know, I really enjoy:
- Guerlain's Mon Precieux Nectar (orange blossom, almond, vanilla and light musk - a little on the sweet side but still elegant);
- Ayala Moriel's Zohar (delicate but warm orange blossom with an earthy drydown).
