Hey Serp, have you tried Comme des GarÃ§ons Series 4: Cologne Vettiveru? If you like Goutal's Vetiver, then you should give Vettiveru a real shake. Its an EDC so its kind of light in terms of sillage. It has a real salty, dirty kind of vetiver note like that of Goutal. To me, its a bit similar and I much prefer Vettiveru. I look at it as an "all-star" team of the vetiver notes of the great Vetivers.
