Original Vetiver remains, by some distance, the best fragrance I've smelled from the house of Creed. It is fresh, green, grassy and soapy. It opens up on the skin a very vibrant green fresh fragrance. About thirty minutes into the application it starts to emit the most gorgeous wafts I've ever encountered in any fragrance. This sensual experience continues into the drydown, where it becomes soft, alluring and vaguely musky.
Vetiver is the major player in this fragrance. But as with Creeds, this vetiver comes from the stem of the vetiver grass rather than its roots, which lends the fragrance the fresh green aroma. There is some ginger to add some zing and mild spiciness. And there is some sandalwood to provide a rounded feel. Overall it smells utterly delightful.
In summer, this is usually what I'd choose to wear over everything else.
Better than Creed Vetiver but still lousy for the price. Ginger and sandalwood is more prominent than the vetiver.
This review is for Vetiver not Original Vetiver.

Vetiver is subtle and fleeting. Overall composition: The soap beside grandmas bathroom sink.
I love vetiver, especially vetiver fragrances that smell like vetiver. Fresh, soapy, boring, not at all earthy.
My favourite Creed
Yes its got a starting smell of soap, but it really doesnt linger hard, kinda just blends into the other aromas.
For me, the resulting aroma i am left with is absolutely lovely, that said im a vetiver lover!
The sillage is really good, and longevity is great, definently worth a try in my book.
Wash a car on a hot summer day. Dump out water with soap and suds into freshly cut grass. Urinate on the soap soaked grass. Original Vetiver.
