    Re: Suggestions for a sexy vetiver

    I'm in the same boat. When I smell vetiver I think cool, collected, sophisticated.

    But Vetiver Extraordinaire and Vetiver Tonka would be my suggestions.

    Brooklyn is nothing special, as far as the scent goes, the bottle is pretty cool though. The Perfumed Court has samples of the Bond fragrances. I would definately try before you buy.

    Other Bond...
