I haven't sampled it. I did read a couple of blogs, and from the description it sounds too harsh and earthy for my taste. I am not a fan of LV - Vetiver, MPG - Route de Vetiver, FM - Vetiver Extraordinaire, Dawn Spencer Hirwitz - Vetyver, Santa Maria Novella - Vetiver, Different Company - Sel de Vetiver, Annick Goutal - Vetiver. This one sounds like it is an aquired taste, hence, my comments.
I no longer struggle to understand a scent, or work myself into liking it. If it doesn't transport me the first time I sniff it, then I know there is no future for us. I know this from my experience on basenotes, and have come to peace with it. I will certainly sniff it maybe one day, but from the comparison and blogs, I probably will not like it.
I prefer a more blended and restrained vetiver fragrance I guess. Vetiver as the predominant player is just a struggle for me...I am a vetiver wannabe! I parade as a vetiver lover, but really I am just a wimp that cannot take the real thing.
Sorry this was slightly off topic, but was responding to you and MikePerez23.
