    My first thought as well but I have to wonder if it's the real smoke he is after or that aspect of what certain vetiver's bring.

    Re: Jules vs Gentleman

    I agree with this. The latest GG, while not on par with the vintage, is still very wearable with decent performance.
    Current Jules is nice but does indeed lack.

    It seemed like people had stronger allegiance to brands or specific fragrances back then.
    Now, we are all over the place[emoji3]

    Also, no IFRA. Designer was potent and lasting. No talk of batch variation and less need to go "vintage"!

    Oh yeah, 212 and Geir! Cuiron, MI , SMW came a bit later.

    Ali was into niche living in NYC at the time.

    L'Artisan VdR and PdE. Niche was nowhere like it is today.
