    Vetiver by Guerlain

    I've been around the block with this one. My first bottle was from the early or mid-70s and I still have a bit left in my original bottle. The vetiver roots had an almost green/fruity resonance that smelled unlike anything else I've smelled before. The original was also very powerful, perhaps because of the presence of one of the nitromusks in that formulation. Then, during the recent few years, I've occasionally sniffed recent incarnations of Vetiver and they've smelled much drier and, quite frankly, much less interesting and more fleeting. And then I bought a new bottle last year, and what a pleasant surprise that has been. It smells very much like the original formulation and lasts the entire day.
