Could maybe be regarded as "dated", but the first one that crossed my mind - Givenchy Xeryus Rouge!

Something more modern to consider, Prada Luna Rossa Black (vanilla facets but no vanilla note) or maybe YSL La Nuit de L'Homme and D&G The One edt/edp. V&R Spicebomb EdT has no vanilla note and could be considered. Paco Rabanne 1 Million is definitely sweet without vanilla note in it.

Also adding:

Santos de Cartier (not overly sweet, but still taking an interesting turn among non vanillic dark powerhouse florals), Ouragan by Bourjois, Bogart PH for a certain cherry, "red fruit" sweet tobacco and also One Man Show Gold Edition from the same house of Bogart, l'Homme Cologne Gingembre from YSL, Chanel Egosite as a cinnamon rose scent with little vanilla, same perhaps Derrick by Orlane, Endymion EDC by Penhaligon's, Aramis Havana as a sweeter tobacco bay rum variation, Hoggar by Yves Rocher as tonka-cilantro experiment
