I just received my sample vile of Givenchy Vetiver last night and your review is exactly what I experienced, deeper and darker than Guerlain, very mild on the citrus notes and more of a pepper overtone than licorice for me.
I only gave it a quick test on my arm and the pepper was prominent more so on the hairs of my arm. Not sure if this was a common scent characteristic of Givenchy.
