Vanillin is typically 2% of the vanilla bean.
Ethyl vanillin is 3 times stronger then vanillin.
I suggest you not to taste this stuff pure you can do the math how much you can use to have the same vanillin content, in case you use vanilla extract it is handy to now the % vanillin it have.
You will not have the same flavour like with real vanilla beans.
Other options that are more expensive are (powder) flavours, they typically contain also other flavour chemicals to mimick the vanilla flavour more.
So a little goes a long way also with flavours there is mostly a recommended dosage of 0,5 to 5 g/ kg depending on the manufacturer.
There are also extracts that 0,1 g is good to give 10 kg an intense vanilla flavour.
