    Smells like a harsh, synthetic laundry detergent. Don't understand the suave appeal. Nowhere close to Guerlain Vetiver or Givenchy Vetyver. Even Creed's Original Vetiver smells so much better.

    This Creed does nothing for me. The opening is very 1948 indeed - it smells like a postwar ramshackle barbershop - residues of spilled cologne, shaving cream, quinine, perm chemicals, dust - yuck. Thankfully it morphs into a soapy floral skinscent after a few minutes, with a touch of cedar and "grey stone" - not bad, but at this point it's already beginning its disappearing act, without any vetiver ever having come to the fore. Two years after this dreary affair came the bold and wonderfully technicolor Orange Spice. I'll stick with that for postwar Creeds, thank you.

    I wanted to like this as it is so popular with Basenote-ers. It struck me as very light and of a woody, caramel combination. It disappeared quickly on my skin. Not a distinguished vetiver by any means.
