  1. Re: Availability of Guerlain Vetiver Extreme

    Agree with marcuccio88, I didn't like it nearly as well as the regular Guerlain Vetiver, or even last year's Vetiver Sport.

    Sephora does have it online, and it is on Amazon as well (via Sephora).

    Both Silvester & Portugal started out nice, but went a little flat after the top notes wore off. If you are looking for a citrus-wood, I liked GFT much better. I haven't tried the Wellington.
