I own Guerlain Vetiver and I enjoy it a lot now (wasn't a big vetiver fan)... i would describe it as round and full smelling. I would like something more 'dry', like Terre d'Hermes/ Tom Ford GV (both I also own and enjoy).
- What 'formulation' of Guerlain Vetiver
do you have? The 'new' Eau de Toilette, I'm assuming (in the frosted, ribbed bottle
)? If so, then I think you should definitely try to smell the vintage Guerlain Vetiver in the Eau de Cologne or the Eau de Toilette. Different bottle, with gold accents
, it can easily be found on Ebay and at other online retailers.
- While I admire the Givenchy, I don't think of it as 'dry'. Nor do I think of Terre de Hermes
as a vetiver prominent scent, but that's just me.
- Other 'dry' vetivers I enjoy:Vettiveru (Series 4: Cologne)
by Comme des Garcons, which has a wonderfully light (but dry) feel with a salty, iodine note.Kenzo Air
by Kenzo, but one must like anise since this has loads of it, mixed with a sort of ozonic/airy feelVetiver Extraordinaire
by Frederic Malle, expensive but worth it, this one is very intensive and it also features a unique ozonic note (a love or hate accord)
- I have not tried these, but you might want to: Red Vetyver
by Montale and Le Vetyver
